An Offer To Buy My Blog
I recently received an offer to buy my blog for $4,000. The person mentioned it’s negotiable, so let’s say I could have sold it for $6,000. I refused. You may think that I should have sold it and then just plowed my efforts into a new blog, but I decided that $6,000 (before taxes) really doesn’t “move the needle” enough. I mean sure I’d love to have a few more grand in my bank account, but I really haven’t worked hard at this blog for a couple years for a few grand.
Most bloggers and internet entrepreneurs work hard for a larger pay out down the road or some kind of stable decent passive income. For me, my goals here are to either establish an income stream that is generated approximately $1,000 and up per month and/or potentially sell the website itself in the tens of thousand dollar range. Will I get there, we’ll see.
A general note on selling a blog or website, but it seems like many times companies or individuals will want to buy a blog or website if it ranks high for a specific keyword. They can then leverage such a position for their business use. Since I really don’t rank that high for that many keywords other than “20s money” or “20smoney” I haven’t received any lucrative offers based on this idea. Maybe I should have focused more on naming my blog after a lucrative search term.
It is interesting to receive your first offer to buy a business or website, even if it is only for a few grand. Hey, I like the direction at least.
