Would You Ever Sell Your Blog?
October 25, 2007
Blogging started out as being something very personal where people wrote about their lives on a daily basis. That’s still sometimes the case today, but blogging has also evolved into a profession, a business. More and more entrepreneurs are starting blogs in hopes of making good money with them for a while, and then selling the blog for an even greater profit when the time is right. So I have a good question for you: Would you ever sell your blog?
Some people plan to sell their blogs from the start; some people choose that path later on, for various reasons. So would YOU ever sell your blog? When you first made it did you intend for it to be sold right from the time it went online, or was that not the case but you’ve now changed your mind? If you would, please tell me why would you or why would you not put your blog up for sale.
The best, most interesting answers will be featured on this blog within a couple of days. I will take the responses I like the most and paste them into a new post, linking back to your own blog and crediting you for what you’ve said. That’s a free link for you and free exposure, so give an interesting and detailed answer please! I would really like to know your opinions on the selling of blogs.
Personally, at this point I don’t think I will be selling my own blog. I love it with a passion, I love working on it, and I love seeing what I can get out of it. Besides, this blog has not been completely business-like from the beginning. While that’s not required, it definitely helps. Potential buyers like a blog they can easily transform into whatever they like, and that’s more difficult if the blog has a personal aspect to it. At this point in time my answer is NO, I will not be selling this blog. No guarantees that that will be my answer forever, but that’s where I stand right now.
What do you think? Would you ever sell your blog? How much money would you ask for it? What are your thoughts on the topic? I look forward to hearing them and possibly linking to you and your response in a future post!
