By now you must have heard about the secret auction held to sell the
to an as yet to be named new owner for what is being reported at over $70,000 USD.
Congratulations Duncan Riley on building an enterprise and a brand valued so highly. I think that officially qualifies you as an SOB–a Successful and Outstanding Blogger. I hereby award you with the badge of honor and your name on this blog forever.
Duncan’s Blog Herald has been on my reading list almost since the day I started blogging. It’s a one-of-a kind read that holds the niche of understanding the blogosphere and reporting on blogs around the world. I’ll miss reading Duncan’s take on things. I’ll miss having Duncan around.
On the other hand, it couldn’t happen to a better guy.
Duncan shares some of his reasons and reflections on the sale at these links, which I’ve tried to place in chronological order.
Seriously, Duncan all badges aside. I’ll miss reading you at 2:30 a.m. up here by Lake Michigan. So once you guys get b5 going strong, I’ll be looking for your new blog.
Best of Luck Always.
