Are you under pressure to keep up with all you blogs? I am, too. So, I am reducing the number of blogs I have to manage.
Yesterday I more or less gave away BungalowRenovations.com and this week I am going to sell WebGardeningTips.com through Flippa.com.
I am still carrying too many baskets for comfort and need to use both hands to carry my main basket, 21CWoman.com. Updating Bungalow Renovations, even with guest posts, was costing me too much time; time that I would have been better off spending on my women’s site.
I am a great believer in stress reduction and only doing things that I enjoy. There was no pleasure in working on Bungalow Renovations any more. I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders already.
After the transfer had gone through someone asked me if I had any more sites for sale. That made me realise that Web Gardening Tips was going to go. I had been in two minds up to that point.
I love gardening, but not writing about it. I now realise that this site is not for me.
Selling the Site
WebGardeningTips.com earns me a significant amount of money most months and the domain is six years old, so I will be selling this site for, hopefully, a decent amount.
Selling Your Own Blogs
Are you trying to carry too many baskets? Perhaps you would be better off carrying one large basket with both hands.
Is it time to sell one of your blogs? Do you spend time working on a site that does not earn you much money?
How Do You Sell a Blog?
Tell people about it – Cost $0. This is what I did for BungalowRenovations.com. It worked and I got what I wanted for the site.
Use Flippa – Costs are proportional to what you get. It looks easy, but I will let you know when I have sold WebGardeningTips.com actually using it.
