Update: Where have I been?

Hello everyone.  Apologies for not posting in ages! I have been a busy man for the past few weeks.

Firstly I went on holiday for 2 weeks in Turkey to Hisaronu, if you haven’t been I highly recommend it, it’s quite cheap, very hot and a beautiful place!  I now have a tan to rival David Dickinson!

Secondly I have been very busy trying to build and launch a new website, details will come soon but I am pretty excited about it.  For those of you who know what sites I have I like graphics and teenager based sites.  This is based on a similar principle but for a slightly more mature market.  It is taking up a lot of time but I am quite proud of what I am making so far.

Just before I went away I was contacted by someone about selling another one of my sites.  It is a fairly undeveloped site but with a good name and I originally had big plans for it.  Due to a lack of time I never got round to pursuing it and marketing it properly.  Anyway someone got in touch about buying it and I am closing the deal today for £700 which is pretty good as the site is only a year old.

This is the second site in as many months that I could have sold.  I am beginning to think that buy buying an attractive domain name and putting a simple site up could work well as a flipping opportunity by waiting for buyers as opposed to peddling the sites on digitalpoint or flippa.

Flippa, by the way, is the new website selling service from sitepoint.  Their entire marketplace has been moved to this new site.  It is quite good but, like most sites like this, is full of spam and rubbish.  If you can filter through the rubbish though there are some great websites to buy.  I look on there fairly often to see if I can find a bargain as I am still looking for an established site to buy to add to my portfolio.
