Many of you will have already heard from the coverage of this sale all over the blogosphere that after just 2 hours of being up for auction on SitePoint Blogging Fingers was sold for the shiny figure of $6000! I am very happy with the sale, it has taken a lot of pressure off of me.
A potential problem when a blog changes ownership is that core loyal readership gets disgruntled and decreases in number because they used to read the blog to read the original bloggers opinions. I took this into account when making the sale and I have agreed with the new owner that I will stay blogging here for at least 1 more week.
I am still in negotiations about staying on for longer.
This weeks posts will contain lots of material about the sale, including what I did behind the scenes, lessons learned and other must-read info if you are thinking of selling your blog.

I guess you’re not goint to retire on that, but it’s certainly better than a poke in the eye with a blogging finger
