For those who don’t know; BlogShares is like a fantasy football site for Bloggers.

Bloggers and Blog Fans speculate on Blogs as if they were companies. Buying and selling stock in Blogs.

I haven’t done anything as far as playing the game, but my blog is listed and I go to the site to see how my “company” is doing from time to time.

On the Road with Dave has been quite active in recent weeks and I wanted to share these two “press releases” from the site.

The reason I’m sharing them here is that I have no idea what is going on. Any Blog Share fans read my blog? Could anyone enlighten me on what happened?

On The Road with Dave suffered a huge setback with several analysts urging their clients to ditch the stock as it suffered a public relations disaster. The exact nature of customer dissatisfaction was not known but (name withheld) was rumoured to have had a hand in it. Industry insiders suspect a Gag Master (artefact) was involved. On The Road with Dave share price dropped from B$1,117.60 to B$547.36 (name withheld) declined to comment on the recent speculation.
