Women's Blog, free to good home

    A few months ago, I started a new blog, plaintalkforwomen.com

    I've now decided it was a silly idea - I need to reduce the number of websites I've got, not increase them!   So I'm wondering if anyone would like to take it over?

    The thing is, I've had contributions to the blog from several writers, and it seems mean to just shut down the blog after all their efforts.  It would be great if someone would like to take it on, preserving the content that's already there and going on to build it up.

    Any takers?  PM me.

      Marisa I'd have leapt at the chance if I didn't have my "sensible head" on  - unfortunately I'm in the same boat as you trying to consolidate the number of websites I have and letting domain names go that I know I will never develop. Good luck finding someone to take over your blog - looks like a nice project for someone.

      I think this is a good opportunity for someone. Wish you and the new owner good luck.

    I'm trying to consolidate too; I have about five expiring this year.

    Just out of curiosity, since authors on the site keep their rights and affiliate links, how would copyright issues work with a new owner?

      I don't see why that would be affected.  Right now, I own the blog but the authors keep their copyright - someone new takes over, same applies.

        I was just curious because Ryan mentioned getting a $5,000 offer for Excerptz but not taking it, because he couldn't enforce that writers kept their copyright.

          I should be so lucky to get an offer like that!   In this instance, the blog is small, and 90% of the writers contributed one article to get a backlink, not to earn from the articles.   I doubt many of them would be too concerned.

            Ok. Good luck! I'm sure someone will take it, I know a year or two ago I would've jumped at it.

    Yes, well I am closing down most of my domains as well. I hope your find someone as it seems everybody is consolidating as not all mini sites and blogs make it anymore.

    Marisa,

    Have you contemplated selling it on Flippa?

      I tried selling a couple of blogs on Flippa once. From memory, it cost me around $30 and I got one bid for $10.   Seems to me it's not worth selling there unless youwrite about popular keywords, because otherwise no one wants it.
