Dear PF Blogger, Are You For Sale?

by J. Money on Wednesday, November 9, 2011

That’s not a rhetorical or “thinky” question, I’m actually wondering if you’ve ever thought about selling your blog? Haha… I’m considering expanding my little empire here, and I wanna see if there’s any interest out there (or not). I’m a big fan of a lot of y’alls, so if it’s crossed your mind once or twice let’s chat.  Maybe we could come up with some sort of partnership? I know some of you have some decent income streams coming through ;) Either way though, give a shout anytime if interested: j (at) budgets are sexy (dot) com, or hit me on our contact form.

And if you’re happy and rockin’ it, keep it up!!  The world needs more rock stars like you to help us keep paying attention to that money :) Nothing but love for y’all.

Not yet! LOL I think I can take it pretty far, but it’s nice to hear you’re in the market.

A guy’s gotta ask, right? :) I’m glad you’re still lovin’ it and pouring your heart into your site — that’s what true blogging is!

If I had an idea that generated traffic, I’d absolutely sell it.

@AverageJoe – Haha… I was actually looking for a pic of that to add to this post, no joke ;)
@TJ – I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or not, haha…

@J$ Totally serious. If I generated an idea that someone wanted to pay a significant amount of money for….I’d take the money and run. :)

haha… even if it took 5 years of blood and sweat building? It would be hard for me to. Esp if that revenue stream just keeps coming in each month…. big chunks are nice but then it’s all gone?? no more income!

What could be the price of a personal finance blog with 700 quality articles and nice lay out and getting 3 Lakh monthly pageviews

Hi J.

Whew, the past couple of weeks have had me lost in the black hole of Black Friday blogging. :) I’ve wanted to connect with you since our meeting in LA and finally, today, I made it over here to see what you’ve been up to. While I’m not a fit for what you’re looking for here, I’ve got a personal blog that’s not in the PF niche that I’d love to sell to a good home biz blogger who will keep it going and benefit from the subscriber list. Are there resources you’d recommend to someone wanting to sell a blog?

I’m off to explore more of your recent posts. :)

Hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving!

Heather Stephens

Happy Thanksgiving to you too, friend! So nice seeing you here :) I don’t know of any resources online really about selling/buying blogs (though of course there probably are!), but I’ll shoot you an email on the side and we can see what you’re up to over there… hopefully we can get some FatWallet partnerships going too! Woo!
