Blog Flipping And Site Flipping – Would you do it?

Written by George Manty  · February 15, 2007

The other day ESPN bought a sports blog called truehoop. Henry Abbot (the owner) will continue to write for it as usual, but now he will be getting paid by ESPN and have special privleges like attending the NBA Allstar game in person. Pretty Cool!

For a lot of people, having their business or blog bought by a big company is a great accomplishment. It certainly helps most people financially.

One of Austin’s friends, Keith Baxter does some site flipping and it pays him well. I have thought about getting into that business, but once I build a site worth flipping I am not sure I would want to flip it. I guess if I made sites on topics I wasn’t that interested in I would want to flip them. But do I really want to build a site on a topic that doesn’t interest me?

Maybe if I could make a million dollars a year it would be worthwhile…

    I couldn’t imagine building sites with the intention of flipping them… the concept is foreign to me. But if an offer came up unexpectedly, and it was substantial, I’d probably have a heck of a time saying no.

    That is kind of my thinking, but if you could get a million dollars for your site, would you sell it? How about 500,000? How about 100,000?

    Interesting topic. Personally, I think I would have a hard time parting with anything that I’d personally invested a lot of time in. However, if someone made a good enough offer? Hrm, maybe.

    I flip blogs and websites daily. I love the challenge of finding a dud, fixing it, and selling to someone else who can fully utilize the work I’ve done. It’s very profitable if you know what you are doing, and it can really be a good time. Plus, I don’t like writing about the same topics for very long, so it gives me a chance to write about something for a few months, sell it, and then move on to a different topic.
