Power of the Blog – One Red Paperclip Project

Posted by inVINCEble on September 15, 2006

The One Red Paperclip Blog shows what kind of power a blog and a new concept can have.

It started with a guy and one red paperclip and a dream of having a house.

His concept is simple, he would take offers from individuals that visit his site. He would then decide if he would trade the current object in his possession for the offered object. Eventually, he would trade up all the way to a house. As far fetch as it seems, his dream was able to come true. All because of the power of the Internet and the individuals that transverse it.
