Question: Which Blog Would You Own?

If you could own any blog past or present, which blog would you take ownership of, and why?

I have been thinking about this question a bit, as I look at the new additions to the 9rules group, and at first my response was Problogger.net, but how would I do as the owner of that site? In this scenario, would I have been the original owner, and if so, would the blog still have become popular? Or if I wasn’t the original owner, would the blog have remained popular if I took it over starting today?

It is a really fun question to ponder, and there is more to think about than just the money that the site makes, as some of the highest earning sites spend much of their money on writers, and others don’t always provide the secondary benefits that a high profile site might provide.

I would probably take over BloggingPro as it is the site that people knew me from the best. It was starting to provide some secondary benefits before I moved on to PicApp, and then to my current employment with College Crunch.

Let me know which blog you would pick and why.

    I wouldn’t want a past or present blog. I’d want to know what the future most incredible blog is going to be – the next gizmodo or techcrunch if you will – and start that now before that future owner does.

    I figure since going back into the past and forward into the future are as equally possible, might as well turn your question on its’ head 😛

    I thought about it for a couple of minutes, and I don’t think I want to own any blogs beyond what I have now, although owning Engadet or Gizmodo might be fun.
