A number of years back a creative writers group to which I belonged decided to host a creative writing contest, shortly before that I had just finished a short 'build a website' course at my local evening college anyway I suggested we run the competition on line, designed and built the website, with a little input from my tutor. That was my beginning into the world of websites. (I was rather proud of myself, I live in Ireland and we had competitors from all over the place - the runner up came from Canada.)
When the contest ended the site lay dormant for some months then I thought I'd try and make it into a regular writers website and to be honest it proved quite popular, the few adsense blocks I had up there paid for the hosting etc and even paid Christmas for me!
Anyway the excitement got to me and I decided to branch out and make a few more websites. I suppose I was overcome by all this 'make a killing online,' hype that I was coming across. Again the results weren't great but paid their way. About a eighteen months back personal matters dictated that I spend less time on what was really a hobby and the sites went by the wayside. I'm now thinking of selling them all except the original creative writing site but don't know how to go about it, I don't even know how to value them and if indeed they have any value. Can you advise. I've tried to work up enthusiasm for them again but just cant manage it
As this is not a direct sales pitch I'll post the address to one of the sites Babies Worldwide and just say that the rest of them are of a smilar standard and I accept that may not be very high. The main thing the sites have in common is that they all, with one exception, end with the 'worldwide.com' tag and I'm thinking that a series of sites with that tag might in itself be worth something
I've read about site flipping, which I understand means building up a site getting traffic and selling it on and I suppose that's what I'm trying to do. Anyway hope I can get some ideas as to where I should go next.
Many thanks for any advice offered
