blo.gs for sale

Posted By Darren Rowse 2nd of March 2005 Pro Blogging News 5

I just spotted that blo.gs is for sale. They don’t really have an asking price so make them an offer. The sale includes sale of:

  • the blo.gs domain name (and all subdomains)
  • the weblo.gs domain name
  • the database of blogs (and related databases)
  • all rights to the blo.gs software

The owner writes: ‘I don’t have a price in mind, so don’t ask. cash-flow wise, the site has cost approximately $3500 to date (mostly for hosting), and has earned less than $750 (mostly from google adsense ads).’

So it doesn’t really sound like a hugely profitable venture that you’d be buying – rather its a ‘renovators delight’ type project.
