Morbid question, I know but it is a serious one, isn’t it?

Seriously, what would happen to your blog if you were to unfortunately die tomorrow?

Would it be taken over by someone else?

Simply disappear?

Well, Brandon Hopkins has written an excellent post on the subject. It certainly gets you thinking and wanting to take action.

    I’ve wondered this since I’m single. I’ve witnessed a few top marketers pass away and either the company others, it it’s INCed with employees, or spouse takes over.

    I’m off to read the article…

      It’s a difficult situation…not too sure what to do myself.

        Like you said though, you’re not exactly starting at the bottom with a partner.

    My blogs would disappear, nobody else in my family or circle of friends would have any interest in running them.

    Great article by Brandon. I wrote a guest post last year on this exact topic. Problem is, I’m not sure even I can answer this question. I really don’t know what would happen. No one in my family has an interest in what I do. I think the best option for me, and maybe some of you, is to look for online friends to pass the blog along to.

      It is difficult, isn’t it? Hence why the post is so…well it makes you think!

        Sure does. So, when should someone start to make preparations to find a predecessor? When their health starts to decrease, when a Will is drafted, sooner?

          I suppose the best time would be as part of your will. Actually include the new owner in your will (with their agreement, of course).

    Its a very tough question, I have ever heard about blogging.
    I think my blogs will disappear after some time.

    In all honesty, I had never given this question any thought before. If you see your blog as a lucrative investment, then I suppose it would be wise to give this issue some thought, though. I read through Brandon’s post and he does, indeed, make some interesting points about how to prepare for the possibility of your untimely passing in this respect. I suppose that, if I were to die tomorrow, my company would just hire someone new to take my place in managing their blogs..and that would probably be that.

      I think in your case, that is what would happen.

      For many of us…the company we work for is ours and ours only!

    Hi Andrew,
    Wow, this sure is a tough question. If a certain blogger’s loved ones can continue on with the blog, I guess that can work. But as for those who have no one to take over, I guess it would be very difficult. Most likely it would just become a stagnant site.

    • Andrew May 13, 2011 at 9:14 am #


      …and becomeing a stagnant site would be such a waste.

      Domains/blogs/websites can be worth a lot of money.

    Wow, that was unexpected. I never even though about that. Hmmm, what would happen to me blog after I die?…

    I have no answer for that!

    I am going to read the article, maybe that will help.

      Hard one, ins’t it?

      Any answers?

      Difficult question, isn’t it? What are you going to do about it?
