I was researching some of the sites that were for sale over at sitepoint today. I saw a couple make money online blogs for sale. Every time i see a make money blog for sale, i make a weird face. I keep thinking about cashquests. I think about the performance of other blogs that sold. It’s usually not a good idea to buy an established MMO blog. It’s cause most of the traffic will die out in time. Blogs are different from static pages. It’s more personal. The blogger’s voice shows via his or her posts. When someone sells you something as personal as a blog, you’re not going to see similar traffic levels after you buy.
When i first started this blog, i wrote a lot of crappy posts. I still write crappy posts, but now i have an audience. That makes a big different. You guys are helping me make money by reading my sub-par posts. I could probably start a new blog now, and see results a lot faster without putting in that much energy or time.
One of my earlier posts was about me begging for a blog to buy. Back then, because nobody was reading my shitty blog, i wanted to buy a blog. I was desperate. If someone read that post, and offered to sell me a blog i probably would have bought it. Even if i got ripped off, i would have taken the blog. It’s cause i didn’t know anything at the time. I just wanted to be heard and experience a blog where people actually read my shit.
Are any of you like that right now? Do you want to buy a blog desperately? Do you want to make money online with you blog? If you’re reading my blog, you probably answered yes to one of those three questions. I don’t think that you should buy an expensive blog. And blogs that make a lot now, won’t after you take it over. It would be hard for an experienced blogger to maintain someone elses blog. If a noob takes over a blog, that blog will fall apart. Buying a blog could be a good strategy if you want to start monetizing right away. If you don’t want to fuss with the learning experience of setting up a new blog, then you should buy one. Buy a cheap blog. Buy a blog that doesn’t cost more then a few hundred dollars. Doing so will get you a private blogging guide/tutor. You’re not only buying the blog, you’re buying guidance.
