    Question Is this realistic?

    I have a celebrity gossip blog, and someone told me I could get in the low $xx,xxx for the site, which highly surprised me. If it's not worth 5 figures though, I might think twice about selling it. Is this appraisal accurate, and if I decide to auction it off where should I start the bids? Here's the info for the site:

    Subject: Celebrity gossip
    PR 4
    Established Oct 2005
    Unique Traffic: 35,000 - 45,000/mo
    Visits: 60k/mo
    Pages: 150k/mo
    Revenue: $550/mo (google, linkworth, glam ads, sponsored posts, etc) + swag
    Total Posts/Revenue: 1,741 (since Jan 2007)

    Other business details:
    I have a writer who comes in and does 7 or 8 posts per week for $20 a week, and I fill in a couple of times during the week, mainly doing recaps. The site is linked from major gossip blogs including

    Google 5,040 Yahoo 416,437 Altavista 402,000 Alltheweb 321,000

    Average 287,380 backlinks

    Opinions are appreciated!

    Ad sense could be used to generate you revenue or affilate programs.
