Wow – this is pretty big. News sources are saying The Huffington Post has agreed to be purchased by AOL for $315 Million. Founder of The Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington will become president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, which will include all Huffington Post and AOL content.
What’s amazing is the number of unique visitors at The Huffington Post, which aggregates articles and publishes its own content, has grown to about 25 million a month since its debut in 2005. Only 2005 this site began and is now being sold for $315 Million! Talk about a success story.
Just goes to underline my point – we all need to get out there and create something. Come up with a good idea, work hard at it and you could be the next Huffington Post.
