Find out all aspects of your blog’s distinctive nature. Be it being niche specific, or its own custom developed WordPress, or a customized logo, or maybe the monthly revenue generated from it.
The seller needs to showcase every little detail so that the buyer can comprehend it easily and doesn’t have to think twice about it.

The entire job is underway. I shall thus publicize and announce things on my social media when things are finished.”
