Should I sell my site?
I feel like blogging today. Lol.
As many of you know (due to my long winded 3 year blog post), I've been at this for 4 years come December 2018. A couple of posts where people flipped their site got me thinking, "What's my site worth?"
So a quick search yielded the number 22k.
This is kind of a weird in between number for a few reasons.
1) It's not quite large enough to sell, but not low enough to completely forget about.
2) My niche is super competitive. I've been battling this fact since day 1. I feel like I've put so much effort into the site, and yes, it has succeeded. It allowed me to leave my 9-5 job but it's not quite making me the money that I envisioned making at this point. Not even close actually. It's the type of scenario where if I put this amount of work into a niche that was a bit easier to make money with, I'd be a millionaire or something. Well not quite :P
3) I would love to get the number higher, and then sell it with a plan in place. Right now it's my main source of income and livelihood, but..
4) It's also my baby. I've put my heart soul into it from the start, and I'm at this point where I keep pouring and pouring into it and increasing traffic past a certain number has become almost futile (or so it seems). For the longest time I've been stuck at around 2,200 visits a day. I was just messaging Nathaniell about it and finally started gaining traction (2,990 on March 19th I believe). But that number quickly regressed about to the norm.
So in short, I want to give it some time to grow more and then sell it, but at the same time I kind of don't want to sell it because of emotional reasons. Lol. It's a niche that I truly care about and am immersed in daily, and that's part of what makes any future decision extremely difficult.
What do you all think?
