A bit of a surprise
Sometime back, I had the following as my status on Gmail [Google] –
I will quote the same here – “Dev is planning to sell Lumuhuku. Financially sound bids can turn this joke into a reality.”
I was administered with a lots of swearing & brickbats from my friends about how I could even think of parting with my blog. It was way too personal to do be sold. And I just told them that I was ready to part ways with my blog, if someone was ready to compensate me adequately.
The next day, I got a call from an old college friend. He had been a regular reader of my blog and a close friend. He enquired about my blog and my reasons for selling it. I told him the same and also told him that I have the domain Lumuhuku registered too. That meant that apart from owning https://lumuhuku.wordpress.com/, I also owned www.lumuhuku.com .
And, then he told me that he was ready to buy it. I thought it to be a joke. And told him that it was fine with me if he was ready to pay me more than ***** bucks.
In the very same evening, I got a message on my cellphone that my account had been credited with an amount of Rs *****/-. I was shocked. I checked it online. And damn!! My friend had transferred the money into my account. The amount was much more than which I had jokingly told him. [My friend knew my Bank account no. since college days.]
So as it must be quite clear by now, you know what has happened. 🙂 I am a bit richer.
Details in the next post soon.
