If you’ve got about 70k to spare you might be interested to know that the Blog Herald (which I read) is up for sale. The blog itself makes about 2,000 US$ a month which isn’t bad. The price is being touted as a little steep, but then how do you set a price on a blog?
It raises a good question though. The blog is normally built around the content. It’s the person that drives the content, provides their views and opinions. So if you take that person out of the equation you had better be ready to fill their shoes, I reckon anyway. Marketing Loop has the Alexa graphs of the traffic and you can’t doubt the potential when the figures speak for themselves.
If you were to sell your blog in the morning, realisticly, what do you think you’d get for it? I can imagine Moore Street some Saturday… “Get your Techcrunch, get your Techcrunch, 2 for a eeeeeeeuro….” 😉
Id have to pay someone to take mine! 🙂
🙂 all in good time, all in good time… still raises an interesting point i think!
Definitely have to pay someone to get rid of mine. But this sort of thing happens all the time on TV, where shows get bought up by other companies and they fill in for the presenter or whatever. The Late Late Show anyone??!!
You think Father Ted would be the same without Dermot Morgan?
It depends on the type of blog that you have. If it is a purely personal blog I can’t see how you would ever hope to sell it. Other blogs, such as those dealing with specific topics, where the authors act more as reporters, could fetch very nice prices.
Quite true Michele, quite true. Can’t ever see how a personal blog would sell myself, anything that’s sold before is strictly business, either one particular topic or 2-3 closely knit topics (technology, internet, software etc.)
Thanks for your thoughts!
