I did comment over on his blog but my comments rarely appear over there so thought I would comment here. My advice to Darren was to get in touch with The Krug. David has experience of blog sales from both sides of the table. In website sale negotiations experience counts, as does a fair evaluation. He might buy it himself. If I had the cash I would be tempted.
Recall my earlier post about snapping up blogs in need of a bit of TLC? This could well be one of them! Right now based purely on a multiple of earnings this blog will sell for not much more than the value of the domain. I can see a greater value, I am sure Darren does too, but it will be the buyer who ultimately sets the price.
Someone is going to get a bargain. The travel niche is well served with affiliate offers, and geeks + travel makes for both an interesting AND lucrative topic. Darren has done the hard work, you just would need to give it the attention it deserves and monetize it.
If I was Darren I would put some time into some Andy Hagans style monetization makeovering to raise its sale price. Having said that, if I was ready to buy a blog I would be snapping this baby up before he had a chance!
