I bought the original site for $15. It was basically $15 for a cluttered mess of a wordpress blog that had been abandoned months ago, but it had about 20 high quality articles.
Now that's what I call a bargain. I'd like to know where you do your shopping! Did you discover the site and then proposition the owner...?
I've contacted owners of a variety of sites I liked the look of, but with no success. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places.
