A-list Blog for Sale

    January 12, 2006

Want a blog? Not some cheesy Blogger blog with a half-dozen readers, but one that’s already on the A list, a top-100 blog on virtually every list, generating around $2,000 per month in revenue?

If you have $40,000, such a blog can be yours.

That’s because blog entrepreneur and “Blog Marketing” author Jeremy Wright is selling it.

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 currently hitting just shy of 1M pages per month, has a PR of 7 and pushes massive traffic around with its links. It has more than 150,000 pages indexed in Yahoo/MSN and 60,000 in Google.

Wright is serving as broker for the sale of the blog and wants to hear only from those who have the money (he’ll take half up front and half in 4-6 weeks) and are seriously interested. It’s not the first time blogs have been sold-some have gone for considerably more.

Who says you can’t make money blogging?
