Well, my friends, it’s time to make the official announcement. I officially sold FlipWebsites.com a couple weeks ago on Flippa. It was a very tough decision to make because I really enjoyed maintaining this blog. The reason I decided to sell was because my other websites demanded my attention and I landed a fairly large offline gig.
I knew there was no way I could maintain the quality of this blog with all the other things that I needed to attend to. My choice was either post once or twice every couple weeks or let it die on the vine. I didn’t like either option so I felt it was best to pass the torch and let someone else take over the blog and take it to the next level. Enter Eppie Vojt…
Eppie is the new owner of FlipWebsites.com. He was a real professional during the deal and he made the transition incredibly smooth and seamless. I’ll bet very few of you even knew that this blog was sold. My “secrecy” about the sale of this blog was by design. I wanted as little interruption for you as possible during the sale. I think Eppie and I achieved that!
I know there is always a concern about a blog when someone new takes over but I assure you this blog is in good hands. Eppie is an experienced website flipper who has a lot of plans for FlipWebsites. I’ll let him share those with you but suffice it to say, you’ll see just as much quality content as I was publishing – if not more!
What I was most thrilled about when I sold this blog to Eppie was that he really seemed to know his stuff about this business and he assured me he would “take good care of the blog.” That was important to me because I put a lot of work and effort into this baby and I know this blog has a loyal following among flippers. I didn’t want the new owner to let them down – and I’m confident Eppie won’t.
I want to personally thank you all for the support I got while this blog was under my ownership. It was a blast and I hope I was able to help you along the way with your website flipping endeavors. Take care and I wish you all the best!

I’ve got a few exciting things planned for the next 2 weeks, including a series called “Anatomy of a 5-figure flip,” which documents a recent $10,000 flip I made via Flippa. The first post in this series goes live today.
