I’ve been thinking about selling this blog these past few months. I want to succeed with this blog but I also want to succeed in affiliate marketing and other projects. In order for a blog to truly succeed you need to post on a consistent basis (every day), which is something I haven’t been doing. I try to post at least once per week but I can’t even keep up with that.
It seems that I’ve reached a plateau, and if I want to reach the next level I’m going to need to post more often and even guest post. I’m definitely not the best writer which is why it takes me about an hour to write a 500 word post. Also, marketing this blog can take a huge amount of time. You have to contact people, comment on other blogs, and so on.
I’ve outweighed the risk and benefits, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m going to sell this blog. This blog has somewhat become (for lack of a better word) a burden. Getting rid of it would free my hands to work on other projects.
I plan to really focus on affiliate marketing. I’ve found that it’s way easier and faster for me to create 3-5 campaigns in one hour than it is to write one post in the same amount of time. It’s time for me to work smart, not hard. I’m not sure how you guys will react to this, but I’ll accept your opinions with an open mind.
As for the listing of this blog, I’m thinking about using Sitepoint or maybe the transaction can be dealt with privately. I would like to sell this blog for $10,000 or more. Items of the sale will be the blog’s files, such as themes, plugins, databases, etc. I will also include social media accounts such as twitter, facebook, feedburner, and aweber list.
If any of you would like to purchase this blog, please contact me. I would like to hear your honest opinions on this and I’d appreciate it if some of you could enlighten me with useful advice on how to go about selling.
