Health Month is up for auction on flippa.com

This morning, my listing for Health Month went up on flippa.com. Check it out! Pass it around! Make a bid! Etc.

(As a sidenote, so far my experience with flippa.com has been great. My contact at their company is a big fan of Health Month, and is doing a lot to help me make the listing as useful and informative as possible.)

It’s bittersweet to have to sell this site.  The number of people who’ve already made offers (informally and formally) has been incredibly encouraging. I’m confident that no matter what happens, the site and spirit of the community will continue on in some form.  In a more amazing form, even.  One of my primary goals with selling it is that it will go to a person or company that has the time and energy to help it grow!

Why you should consider bidding on Health Month

Because it is awesome. Because you are awesome. Because you have ideas for it. Because you have the time, energy, and skills to make it more awesome.  Because you want to have an entry point to making a real impact on healthy behavior change in the world.

If you can’t make a bid for whatever reason, but know someone who might be interested, please send this along to them! Friends of friends are usually the best place to find connections like this. Be the connector!

Here’s the link. Thank you.

Oh, and if you want, you can hop into June’s game here.

Do any of you lovely people want to buy Health Month for cheap?

Through a series of personal realizations and business inevitabilities, it looks like I’m going to have to try to find a new owner for Health Month.

Ideally, it would be someone from the community who loves it and has the time, energy, and resources to keep it going in the same spirit.  If this sounds like you, PLEASE make check out the listing for its sale over on flippa.com. After reviewing details there, feel free to send questions to 206-355-9718 or busterbenson@gmail.com.  

The worst case scenario would be that I couldn’t find the right buyer and would have to shut the site down.  It DOES sustain itself with the monthly $5 games, but it’s not quite enough to justify full-time work at the moment, and we’ve got so many other projects on our plates.

In any case, just a heads up.  Nothing will change in the next month or so.  If you’re at all interested, or know someone who is, please put yourself, or them, on the horn to me.  

I love Health Month. Long live Health Month!

No more Foursquare badges :(

Unfortunately, May is the last month that Foursquare badges will be awarded for completing a month with one or more life points.  They’ve decided to discontinue the very generous third party integration that we’ve been using.  

Let me know if anyone has already paid for their June game and would like a refund.  Email be at buster at healthmonth dot com with your Health Month username and I’ll take care of it for you.

I wish to thank Foursquare for partnering with us in the first place.  It definitely helped Health Month grow when it was just a wee babe.
