Fake Steve Jobs Is Back, Why?

In July last year, the Fake Steve Jobs blog closed down to become Real Dan Lyons. The joke was up.

And now he’s back, with pops on the liver transplant and some longer posts. Did you miss him? The amount of comments on the blog seems to scream yes…

Update: It seems as if Fake Steve hit Gawker, and that hit Techmeme. I guess you did miss him.

Time to hang up the pajamas– Daniel Lyons

Filed as News with 11 comments

567px-daniellyonsDaniel Lyons of Fake Steve Jobs-fame showed exhaustion from blogging after failing in his attempt to turn his blog into a business that could bring in the earnings that would satisfy him.

As experience taught him, even a monthly traffic of 1.5 million and 10 to 20 posts per day is not enough to turn in a living for him, earning only $1,039.81. Despite additional ads coming in, his blog apparently failed to push him into quitting his day job.

“While blogs can do many wonderful things, generating huge amounts of money isn’t one of them,” Lyons said.

His obsession failed to bring in the ‘pot of gold’ from his venture. For this, he concludes that it’s time to hang up the pajamas.

How about you, when is it time to hang up your pajamas?

Fake Steve Jobs Becomes Real Dan Lyons

Fake Steve Jobs, you know, the fake Steve Jobs blog, have closed for the time being. Enter the real Dan Lyons, being the guy behind the whole Fake Steve thing. As far as I can tell, he pretty much rambles on as always on his new blog, incidentally designed by cnp_studio, and is powered by WordPress.com’s VIP hosting plan.

I wonder if people will find the real Dan as interesting as fake Steve?
