What’s a blog and forum worth?

I sold two sites today. Weblog Empire for $1k USD and Coupon Weblog.com for $250. It took one and a half hours. Scary. Scary in that they could have been worth easily more. Scary in that even relatively non maintained sites can be worth so much. I’ve still got a long list of fun/ trial/ experiment sites I could sell… given these prices, well the ducted gas heating at $6k AUD is looking a distinct possibility 🙂

But the question then arises? what is a blog worth. When I sold the Blog Herald it was a really hard question. Anything above $10k is a hard sale…really. But even smaller blogs? PR6 blog? Is it worth $1k, $2k, $5k???? interesting question.

What I do hope (oddly enough) is that we see more blog sales, because we need to establish a proper market for blogs, and then we can establish a market price.
