Ever thought about selling your domain? Looking at my about page I decided that I have way too many blog sites. This of course means I have too many domains as well. That being the case I decided I should get rid of some of the dead weight, so to speak.
How To Go About Selling Your Domain
The first one I decided to let go was my load of bullshit site. I hardly ever post on that blog anymore and I’m sure that there is someone out there who will be able to utilise it a lot more.
When it comes to selling your domain the first thing you need to do is to find a reputable site for selling your domain. After a lot of research I decided that Sedo was the best one for the job!
When first decided to sell my domains I thought about just listing the blogs on Sedo. I thought that perhaps some people would be interested in taking the whole blog over.
Then I discovered that when selling your domain with Sedo you’re better off to park the domain with them. So that’s what I did. You may even make a little money before the actual sale by parking your domain with Sedo.

As you can see, no money as yet but hopefully that will change soon. Either that or I come up with a quick sale. Either outcome would be great.
Moving Your WordPress Content To Your Computer
What I didn’t realize when parking my domain with Sedo was that I would lose all the content. That’s an awful lot of blood sweat and tears. I had to find a way to move those files from the web to my computer. It took a lot of Googling but I finally came up with this tutorial.
Once I got it all working on my Mac I was able to use the export/import feature of the WordPress Tools in my dashboard to transfer those posts, with comments, to my Well Blog Me blog. Over time I’ll refurbish those posts giving that blog a whole lot of new content.
