Are you a Web Designer who would you like to earn over $1,500 per month in passive income while boosting your freelance career? You might be interested in becoming the new owner of my Line25.com web design blog, which is currently up for auction on Flippa. After launching the site in 2009 and growing it over the past 6 years, I’ve decided now is the time to pass it on to someone else. I’ve lost interest in the web design scene, and the arrival of our baby daughter means I don’t have as much time to put into my other ventures. With 10,000+ visitors per day, 23,000+ subscribers and 27,000+ followers, it’s an established blog in the design community that could provide someone with a new career.
Many of my readers will be familiar with Line25.com. I launched it in 2009 after I saw success with my Spoon Graphics design blog. Line25 quickly grew in size and now sees over 225,000+ unique visitors and 430,000+ pageviews per month, with many articles gaining number 1 search rankings and posts receiving 100s of social media shares. I’ve been lucky enough to earn a living from running my blog as a full time job, so if you’ve ever dreamed of doing the same, this could be a great opportunity to begin a new career and live the Internet lifestyle.
After some additional monetization, revenue now averages at $1,500 per month, with the latest figure from April hitting $2,420. With effort to source sponsored posts or promote affiliate deals, this figure could be significantly higher going forward. The Line25 website could be exceptionally valuable to a web professional who might use it for self promotion to dramatically increase their freelance work. Before I stopped freelancing myself, my blog provided a regular stream of worldwide clients.
Overview & Key figures

Line25 has over 640 posts in its archives, many of which are still relevant today and receive steady traffic from high search rankings. Roundups of design resources and showcases of web designs are popular styles of content, with this design trends post being a great example with almost 3,000 tweets, 42,000 StumbleUpon likes and 350 Facebook likes. Since the website was launched I’ve only ever posted one main article per week (on Monday), followed by the regular “Sites of the Week” showcase each Friday, which is popular with readers.
I’d recommend the new owner continues with this style of content, maybe reinforcing it with more tutorials and opinion pieces on the topic of web design. I recently began accepting content from guest writers, which might be a good option for the new owner. Increasing the posting frequency to 3 posts per week would also be a great way to boost the site’s performance and potential revenue.
