boingboing.com is a parked site

Ever type boingboing.com to try to access boingboing.net? You get to a parked site. I just wondered how much that domain cost. Thats a nice piece of internet real estate to have.

i’ve been reading in forums that its probably easy making 2 dollars here and 3 dollars there. thats probably the greatest thing about the internet. micro deals happen all the time. anyone with a computer and a internet connection can set up a website and take payments via paypal. go on forums and start building a reputation and slowly but surely you will start generating income. Its not a truck load of money but its a start. Sites like johnchow and shoemoney are extraordinary sites that started early and became the go to places for learning to blog for money. Its gonna be hard trying to emulate their success. I doubt they could copy their own success if they had to do it all over again.

word to bloggers. wordpress is a great blogging platform but there are alot of different options when developing a website. “make money online” is a hard niche to compete in especially if you are a noob. because i am a noob i didn’t realize this. i will focus my energies on another niche with this blog.

i want to buy a blog

I’ve now discovered how hard it is to start a blog from scratch. I was planning on buying a blog but opted to wait until i got the hang of things. Im somewhat familiar with wordpress now and have all of affiliates and forum regs set up so its time for me to go and buy an established blog. I have a budget of around $1000. Expecting a PR of at least 2 and readership over 150. There should be traffic already and a revenue stream. It doesn’t have to be alot. The general rule is that the purchase price of a blog is 10 times the monthly revenue so that’s what i want. If anyone can refer me to a blot i would pay them a finder fee. Real estate transactions give 3% so i’ll give the person who finds me the perfect blog to buy a 3% commission. Please leave the stats of the blog and information on comments. Thanks
