As of today the WordPress blog WPVibe has been put up for sale via Flippa. The reserve price is set at $2,000 (or $10,000 to buy it now) and the listing itself will close in 29 days. All of the relevant stats and figures can be found on the Flippa listing.
WPVibe was started by Dre Armeda (of Sucuri Security CubicTwo) and Jonathan Dingman, both WordPress developers, in 2009 as an independent WordPress news and community blog. A noble endeavor, if I do say so myself. In regards to selling and moving on from WPVibe, Armeda said:
WPVibe was never considered something we were going to do for revenue. The thought for WPV was to make it a viable WordPress resource, and we’d like to see it live on and hopefully meet that potential. I’m running CubicTwo & Sucuri which are revenue streams for me, and Dingman works for Userplane, our time has become very limited.
We launched it at the end of 2009, C2 and Sucuri from my side came in early 2010. They’ve taken off and unfortunately I can’t give the needed attention to WPV for it to grow as we’d like.
Armeda also mentioned on Twitter that anyone interested in WPVibe can also contact him directly.
So who’s in the market for a WordPress blog like WPVibe’s? Or, if you were starting a WordPress-centric blog today, what would you focus it on?
