MASSIVE Blog for Sale: Want a well-known blog? Bidding starts at $40,000. (And no, they don’t say what blog it is).
This is one of the defining blogs in the industry. When I go to conferences and mention the blog, and the author, I get an “oh yeah!” kind of response. Everyone knows this blog. It’s no Engadget, but it is in the top 100 blogs in the world (in every measure but Technorati, which is inherently flawed since it counts all time links).
It’s made every other top 100 list out there, receives numerous awards, is quoted in major newspapers around the world on a weekly basis, has a PageRank of 7 and currently makes about 2,000$/month. Though, with the traffic it was, there’s no reason it couldn’t make 2-3 times that with the right manager, designer, etc.
