The Back Porch News is For Sale

Article written by on Saturday, Jan 26, 2008 in Announcements

Update: The site now has a new owner. After much thought I’ve decided to put The Back Porch News up for sale. My time and energy are going into new projects and as much as I keep thinking I’ll get back to ‘The News’ it just hasn’t happened. I’ve put a lot of time and effort into the site over the last four years and I’d really like to see it continue.

If you are looking for fame and fortune traditional music probably isn’t the best subject to write about but as weblogs go Back Porch News is modestly successful. It has about 172 subscribers and and gets about 1900 page views a month. It makes a tiny amount of advertising revenue. It could bring in more if properly handled but we are talking about folk music.

However if you love folk music and want to share that love with other people AND you want to help the community grow and prosper this could be your chance.

The price depends, frankly on who you are and what you want to do with the site. For a strictly commercial sale I’d be looking for about $2,500. For someone with the right plans for the site it could be considerably less. If you think you might be interested use the contact form to get in touch with me.
