I have been approached by an individual offering to buy rights to my blog. I have a personal diary type of a blog, covering candid personal and intimate life. The individual says that he is a ghost writer and this is how he does research.

What would "rights" to the blog entail? What are the implications? I don't want to ask this individual questions like this in order not to lose my negotiation leverage. I want to keep writing the blog, since it is a natural progression from years of the real diary I have written in notebooks. Thank you in advance for your opinions.

Good things wait for those who know what they are doing

Selling A Blog
I have never heard of this - the real question is what is being bought. I suppose you have to determine what rights you are selling. If your blog has a great deal of hits because of who reads you - then why remove the thing that makes the blog. I don't understand this. Let us know how this unfolds.

he is interested in the storyline, and in my narrative of growing from a young naive wife to a happy divorcee that eventually gets remarried. I will keep updating on this offer. I want to know is in what way I will be limited once the rights to a specific time period of the blog are sold.

I'm impressed by the person's ethics quite frankly. An idea? It would be simple just to hijack it and go off on a tangent without any credit given. I figure the person wants to buy it because he wants to use the details you've revealed. I'd certainly ask him about the particulars because - IMO - he's already shown interest.

that individual represents a company. They want to generate something else, but they have no choice because it will be easily searchable. Dieu merci! - for Google.
