Once you have found a blog and established more or less what it is worth, do your own due diligence to find as much information as possible. Start looking for statistics, positions (test it on Google), PR, any testimonials the blog may have, etc.. Do this fast and act on it as soon as possible. Send the owner an email if you can to discover more information (e.g. documentation, earnings, traffic stats, etc). Be sure that they are verifiable numbers and remember to not insult the owner. If the owner thinks that the blog is worth hundreds on tens of thousands and you believe that it is only worth by the hundreds, maybe you should back off right away. If the owner is fair, then it’s sure that no deal will be made. Now, if the two of you have a fair figure in mind, then the dancing begins.
