If you heard the rumors – you heard right. I decided to sell si.blogs site, brand and everything that comes with it.

It was not an easy decision but with everything else going on in my real life I cannot devote enough time and energy to the site and therefore it is not meeting the expectations of users and myself. I hope to find a buyer that will continue with development and support of the great community that grew around the site.

On February 1st I will post an auction on Bolha (or maybe even eBay) and the highest bidder that will meet the requirements will get:

  • ownership of siblogs.com domain
  • copy of the source code for the site
  • database with every blog ever posted to the site and every post every syndicated
  • the right to use name and the logo
  • list of my ideas for the site that he/she might want to consider in the future
  • 30 hours of my free support for everything related to the site

I will ask the future owner to:

  • continue to use the site, name, logo for the original intent – promote blogs in Slovenia
  • respect the community
  • (important addition) continue the good tradition of throwing a “blog meet” party once a year (don’t worry, cookie usually does all the work)

If you are interested in the deal you can request the detailed information about the site via my contact form.

I would like to ask everyone to think hard and strong who would be the right person/company to continue my work and let them know that I am willing to sell si.blogs. Please, spread the word!

Ej to je OK. Morda pa ti vseeno ni treba prodati vsega. Saj lahko prodaš le del sibloga, čeprav je fajn vsake toliko časa v lajfu narediti rez in začet novo poglavje. Vsekakor je siblogs dobro poglavje!

Bomo razširjali dobro siblogs besedo, a zgolj, če se boš udeleževal naših Siblogs mitingov!

Častna bloggerska?

Ne razumem kako misliš "le del"...
Za meete pa ne skrbi, pridem kot bloger! :)

kaj pa ce naredis siblogs d.d., naredis delnice in jih prodas??

no ja, se zavedam, da je zadaj mnogo stvari.. ampak stvar bi lahko bila zanimiva :)

# re: si.blogs for sale 1/16/2007 4:50 PM David
Nekako se mi zdi, da ni čisto tako enostavno in hitro. :) Bi bilo pa zanimivo, se strinjam. Ampak potem bi mi pa delničarji skakali za vrat, jaz bi pa rad mir... :)

vidis, ravno tukaj je catch.. 51% bi dal nekomu, ki bi s tem upravljal, kodiral, itd.. ostalo pa bi si razdelili tisti, ki bi si to zeleli.. volk sit, koza cela :) in cez par let bi lahko svojih par % prodal googlu :)

Release the code under GPL?

had: come on... povej mi en site v slo s katerim je kdorkoli kaj pametnega zaslužil? poznamo samo en priemr, kot je nekdo prodal site američanom za pameten denar. v angleščini in neregionalno usmerjen. na slo področju z nekomericalno internetno stranjo enostavno ne moreš računati na denar. entuziazma in sponzoriranja z lastnimi sredstvi sem se pa preobjedel.

bigwahe: also a possibility. the trouble is, siblogs is much more than code. it's domani name, it's hosting costs its the community. GPL doesn't take care of that as far as I know.

hm, spomnim se, ko sem se pred dvema letoma prijavil na siblogs, takrat nas še ni bilo prav veliko tukaj ... vsaka čast Davidu za vse, tudi za hvalevredno namero, da jo proda nekomu, ki jo bo v tem duhu razvijal naprej - dobra priložnost in obenem obveza do slo blogerjev.

# re: si.blogs for sale 1/17/2007 12:20 AM David
Hvala torin. Glede na debate na drugih blogih sem danes nameraval napisati post z dodatni razlogamo zakaj in čemu prodajam. Pa si ti dosti lepo doumel. Upam, da bodo tudi ostali. Cheers.

Stran mi je kul, in sem pripravljen nadaljevat. Če bo pa potrebno za to plačati, sem pa tudi nekaj pripravljen odštet. Lahko se pa zbere ekipa, vsak neki plača, pa se kot skupen projekt nadaljuje. Sicer pa imam znanje, čas in prostor za gostovanje :)
