When I wrote the entry on selling Wisdump there was a great discussion about how much my personality draws readers to this site and how it will effect whoever buys it. There were also some comments suggesting that I keep the site and change the format a bit allowing for more authors to jump on board. So then an even better solution would probably be that I stick around and write on here for a while and be joined by some other writers meaning you will be overwhelmed with Wisdump content and that’s the solution that is coming.
I had a couple of offers for the site despite people believing that it wasn’t worth the price I was suggesting and I accepted the lowest bid. WTF?! The two highest bidders wanted to make the site a link directory and the other was solely about the money. The people who placed the bid that I accepted laid out their plan for the site and I couldn’t be happier with it. Less ads, more writers. Definitely sounds like a game plan that I can live with.
If you still want to write for Wisdump I will make sure I get the information from them to pass along to everyone here. And who are these new overlords you ask? Well, they will come out of hiding and tell you soon enough. You see it takes a while to climb out of the big shadow that I cast on this site so you can’t blame them for taking their time.
Oh and I started to write over at Fast Company so if you want to catch my more serious writings head on over there every Friday to catch me. For everything else 9rules is of course the place to be. Now if you excuse me I must finish up these articles filled with bad words and naked pics and publish them before they realize what they bought.
