After 3 years of administering and developing the PhilosophyForum.com, I’ve come to the conclusion that’s it’s time to sell it and move onward. PhilosophyForum.com, the domain name and the content are currently for sale at Flippa.com with a current bid of $15,000 and No Reserve!
While I realize that I’ve not done a very good job of maintaining my blog, my hopes are to do more writing once I have facilitated the transfer of ownership of the Philosophy Forum to it’s new owner.

Why Am I Selling the Forum?
There comes a time where it’s time to say goodbye and move on and after 3+ years of pouring time and energy into the forum, I’ve decided that it’s time to let go and allow for a new owner to take this forum to the next level. Besides, I want to spend more time reading and writing and while I love philosophy, I’m not as adept on the academic side of philosophy and I’m confident the new owner will be able to continue on with the forum in a way that will benefit it’s members.
I do have an emotional attachment to the forum because of all the hard work and time put into it but above and beyond that, the relationships with the members and moderating team. It’s not just a wonderful forum, it’s an exceptional community with some very intelligent discussions. I do hope to continue membership in the forum and do some blogging there as well as making a positive contribution to the community and it’s new owner for a long time in the future.
I wish the best to the new owner and look forward facilitating a smooth transition of ownership.
