For a blogger, there is nothing more important than their blog. They love it, care for it and make sure it gets the best treatment so that  success can be achieved. For them, the blog is like a baby whom you nurture so that it stands out of the crowd. But sometimes, things do not turn to be so easy.

Giving your time to a blog depends a lot on the personal issues and circumstances and for a part time blogger, it sometimes becomes difficult when there is excess work pressure or the family issues that need to be sorted out. And at that moment, you feel you need to part ways from your blog.

Well, in the long run; it may not be a bad decision. It is no good that you are clinging on to something just because you love it but you won’t be doing anything with it. It will ultimately die and lose its existence. It is important to be proactive in this case and you may plan to sell it.

Selling a blog is a tough decision for any blogger because it is something that you have cared for and tried to make sure it looks best. But then, what is the use of making those efforts if nobody is going to see it? Selling looks the only feasible option.

But selling a blog is not easy as it sounds. You have to make sure you have certain things clear in your head. Through this article, I will try to take your attention towards 4 of the most important issues that need to be taken care of as you plan to sell a blog.

1. Value
This is the most important thing. You want to make sure that you get more than what you have invested in the blog. So, make a rough but reasonable estimate of it. Think “If I was to buy this blog how much would I be willing to pay ?”. And don’t be rigid. Be open to negotiations. Listen to other offers but do not just succumb to their demands. It is your blog and you have every right to sell it and you surely won’t sell it at any road-side price. So, a cool, sensible head is required while dealing with price negotiations of your blog.

2. Person
So, you want to be sure that the person who is going to buy it will care for it and keep the blog intact. Just don’t sell it to any random person for the sake of money. Try to get a brief background of the buyer and check out his credentials. After all you have to make sure that your blog is being passed through to the right hands, the responsible person. Although, after buying; he has every right to do whatever he wants; a bit of background won’t be a bad idea.

3. Updating
Do not expect to get a good value for your blog if you have not updated it for a month and now you suddenly decide to sell it. A blog’s most important USP is its activity. If the Google bots are not tracking it; you will lose a lot. So, if you are planning to sell it; announce the sale notice but keep writing so that the blog does not die down immediately. After all, the buyer will also find it easy to carry on your work rather than build on to the left alone stuff.

4. Accounts
It is important you use one email id for all the accounts that you with your blog. For services like Gravatar, CommentLuv, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other stuff; use a single id because if you have to pass on to the account details of the services associated with the blog; you do not pass on to him different email for every service. Also, keep the password of that id different from what you use for your personal emails. You will certainly not like others poking into your mailbox.

These are the 4 most important points for me. The list and the priority can change from person to person and it will be nice if you can share them below with us to benefit all.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Some time i google the person who want to buy my site and this really help me to make the decision of selling to him or just refuse





  2. @Ahmad,
    It’s good to know who is the person who intend to buy your site, it shows that you’re still caring about your site, you would want to see your site grow after selling off to the new owner. Anyway, somehow we have to choice to sell it off for some reason, we can’t keep it but we still hope to see the new owner could bring it to the next level.



  4. until now I have not had the desire to sell my blog, but one day it would be useful
    asked permission to bookmark your posts


  5. @ Ramzi,

    It’s better if we can keep it, but sometimes we’re forced to sell it off for some reasons, perhaps financial issue. Anyway, it can be your reference if one day you decide to sell it.

    Hope it works for you.
