My wife said to try and sell these sites.

Included: The two domain names, the top hits on Google, Yahoo, and Bing for (without quotes) I hate him, the top hits on Google, Yahoo, and Bing for (without quotes) I hate her, and all rights to the 1,681 posted stories. As a privacy issue, the originally submitted stories containing personal email addresses (some from minors) are not included and will be deleted upon sale.

$1,000 for the whole lot would be silly. $1,000,000 would be perhaps a bit unrealistic. Traffic-wise the domain names are only worth about $5,000 together, but the #1 search engine rankings and the story rights bump that up a bit. There’s also the 12-15 years of time and expense running the sites and my wife not specifying how fast to sell or how much to charge...

Call it $100,000, unless I get multiple offers within 1 week of the first offer. If that happens, then everything goes to the highest bidder. I have no idea if this is a reasonable price, but I will be technically correct (the best kind of correct) in saying that I did try to sell the sites."

9 years doing interviews in the field. Best pen for my work is a Pigma Micron 002 black. You can get them at Michaels and Joannes (craft stores) for about $3 each. If you order them online in bulk, you can get them down to around $1 each. Thinnest line, doesn't run, reliable. The only down side for me was that I wore the writing tip out in about 3 weeks per pen, but that's pages and pages of notes per day.
