Three years ago, I was told by many bloggers: “You will never make money blogging. And if you do, $200/month will be your highest peak ever”.
Three years ago, The Financial Blogger was averaging 500 visits per month and I was ecstatic when I made my first deal of $10 for a link.
Three years later, I now run three financial websites, bought two of them and flipped a blog within a year for over $15,000. I am now able to work one full day per week on my online business (while I still have to keep my “day job” in the meantime). I really like buying and managing finance blogs as I think it is currently one of the best investing opportunities we can find.
When I asked Sam if I could write a guest post for Financial Samurai, he asked me to include more details on how I appraised blogs and how do I decide or not to send $10K over the wire (or more!) simply to buy a “.com”.
