If you are a WordPress enthusiast and have been following the latest news, you will know that Small Potato (Wpdesigner.com) recently sold his blog for $65,000 to some Polish guy called Pawel Ciszewski. It is really amazing that the blog was sold for that much money even when it was not earning any substantial revenue. But anyway, I feel that SP (Small Potato) has made a wrong choice by selecting someone who is not related to the WordPress field and the blog is in jeopardy now. I guess SP was in a hurry to pack his bags for his tours.
There has been no news posted since March 28, 2008 on the blog which is making the blog readers impatient and many have already unsubscribed from the blog. Pawel who is the new owner, promised the blog readers that he is hunting for theme designers and other staff who will run the blog. But its very ironical that there has been no update after that point. According to some readers’ research, Pawel Ciszewski runs some online casino sites. So, this really shows how much he will care about the reputed blog which was taken to a high level by SP. But SP, shame on you… your baby is dying out there and no one really cares.
If you read the history of Blog Oh! Blog, you will know that I purchased this blog from Bob (the previous owner) for $10,000 and have managed to take the blog to the next level. I do not have any shame admitting the fact that I bought this blog for earning money but hey, I never ceased to make good themes or write useful stuff for the readers (which is clearly appreciated by the community). Blog Oh! Blog is very close to my heart and if I ever sell (not likely though), I will not let it go into the hands of any Tom, Dick or Harry..I promise that much to you all 🙂
Let me know what you think…
