Why should someone buy this business?

This blog is a great source of passive and sponsored income. It has the potential to grow with little effort. Some posts will need updated SEO information. The blog contains more than 240 blog posts and has generated consistent organic traffic from Google. The blog presents a great opportunity for the new owner to add their own information and continue to blog about what they are passionate about in life.

Why are you selling this business?

I am selling this business because my children are all in high school now and I want to be able to spend every spare moment enjoying them and their activities before I become an empty nester. With their current activities I will be volunteering at their school as a team mom of three sports, which will take up most of my time.

About the Seller

United States

I am an established member of several networks who offer sponsored opportunities to bloggers. The sponsored posts come from the different networks I am a member of as well as "cold" inquiries from PR companies. I would be willing to share the name and websites of the networks I partner with. Because I have been with these companies and this is an established blog with them, acquiring those opportunities are much greater than if you were to be just starting out. The selection process is up to them, based on the submitted proposal for each project.

For the pitches from PR companies, I am listed with PRNewsNetwork and Cision, they regularly send out pitches to those on their lists. Replies and negotiations are up to new owner. It's important to list a contact method on the homepage for PR Reps looking to partner with you.
