Someone wants to buy one of my blogs! MORE money?

Last Update: August 19, 2017

Is there something in the air? I'm sitting here in shock right now! I received an email from someone wanting to purchase my homeschool blog for a little more than a couple thousand! I don't want to say the exact amount! Am I totally stupid for hesitating? It was started in 2013 and I used sub-domains from it to homeschool my kids, and one of the sub-domains is still there with my youngest child's curriculum I setup on it! After I got the email I did a search! I can't even put good sentences together right now..I'm shocked with everything good that has been happening lately! My husband acted like it was no big deal, so I asked him "Why aren't you surprised? It's not even that good of a site" His response was, "After 10 years and all the work you put in on creating blogs for others, and yourself, they would be worth something one day!" I still have to create a header for the blog, and everything, but I don't want to sell! Ever since I joined WA, after some rough patches, things started happening really good money wise! I don't think any of this would have happened if I hadn't have taken the plunge and joined up! Thank you, Carl Welliver, for being such an amazing friend and referring me to WA! I have to get over the shock and decide what I'm going to do! I don't have the domain added to WA yet, but I implemented the training to the site, some of it anyway, as it's still a work in progress after all these years! Thank you, WA as well! Sorry that this post is so scattered right now and not up to my usual standards..kinda shocked right now!

I can feel your excitement. Way to go. Doesn't sound like you're ready to sell but it's a great feeling to know that's an option. Enjoy the moment. Debbie

Great news! Sleep on it (if you can) and take a few days to let things settle down in your head. Don't be rushed it's your blog.

Congrats girl!!!! You are really good at what you do...you, like your husband, should not be shocked!! You are just that good. Let it all sink in before you do anything. If you don't want to sell, then don't sell. The blog, afterall, is YOURS!!!

Congrats again!!!!!

Thank you so very much! :) I enjoy creating the blogs and the training here, but this one has sentimental value to me because of my kids!! :)

So keep it...there will be more to sell. Just explain to the wanna be buyer, that due to sentimental value, you are keeping the blog. What are they going to do...shoot you???....LOL!!!

Keep up the amazing pace!!!!

Hi Terry, you already said it.
"I don't want to sell'
Wait or you will regret it later.

Think of it as a compliment for your amazing content and I'll bet it will be worth wayyyy more later on, than what this person offered.

I would watch it because this person may just 'copy' it or, someone else may do that also. Protect yourself.

Your post isn't scattered and I would be shocked also.
You did an excellent job congratulations!

Wow, that is so cool! Congratulations Terry. I am just curious, is there any monitization set up on the site? Does it sell anything or have affiliate links?

Good for you!!!

Yes it does!...the thing is that all my blogs and work is under my husband's name because he has the credit card...so my husband is the one they contacted...lol I'm still working on the site, and the weird thing is it holds so many memories that I don't want to sell it!..Can't they just make their own? lol

And thank you! :) I'm still in shock!

I just read something yesterday about how to figure out how much your website is worth. It was very informative. Not that I am ready for that yet, I just happened to see it and was curious.

Basically you figure out how much your site makes, then subtract it's expenses (hosting etc. and if you had employees wages). Then you take the resulting profit and that will be mulitiplied by usually 2 or 3 times. So, for example if your site made $1000 per year, then you would reasonably expect to get $2,000-$3,000 for the site. A few go up to 4X the annual profit.

I thought it was good information. If you DID decide to sell it (not that I think you should, if you want to keep it), I just wanted to make sure you know what it is worth. There are sites where you can enter in your information and see what it is worth like empireflippers.com. Some are really simple where you just enter in your site address and they come up with a number. Others like empire flippers ask how many social media followers you have and other questions (I don't think you need social media followers but it adds to the value).
