A number of you were surprised when I mentioned that I was negotiating to sell off this blog. Some of you are probably wondering how is it even possible. Well, anything is possible in the Internet world. I mean if women can auction off their chastity online, what’s selling a blog really? Anyway, it’s something that is already gaining momentum in recent years and in Internet lingo, it’s called website flipping. It’s good business because as a seller, you can get a tidy profit and for the buyer, they can gain an established site that brings them good money without having to build it from scratch. However, not every site can be sold and so with my first hand experience at having nearly sold off this blog, let me share with you why you should be building your blog to sell it off.
I thought I’ll write a quick update on what was happening to this blog and what’s coming up. If you’re a regular here, you would have noticed that things have slowed down quite a bit in the early part of the year. Actually, I was about to let this blog go. I had received a serious offer to buy this blog and we were in the tail end of our negotations. It was a good offer and I was busy with all the due diligence. However, in the midst of all those emails, telephone and skype calls, I realized how much this blog had meant to me and it didn’t help that the buyer was just full of praises and that really made me think hard about letting it go.
I don’t know if this is apparent to all of you but many bloggers make money out of their blogs. Well, I do.

I bought myself two pairs of new shoes this week and one of them is a pair of sneakers. I recall the last time I wore sneakers was like 10 years ago. But because I don’t exercise anymore, I just don’t see a need for them really. Well, I’m not sure if I’ll get back to doing any serious exercises with them but they’ll definitely come in handy for some upcoming outdoor activities in the weeks ahead. Other than that, I doubt I’ll wear them much on a frequent basis because they are completely out of my fashion radar. But I kinda like the fuchsia color. If only I could find matching socks too.
