Blogtor Who is a very popular Doctor Who blog. It was set up by Cameron McEwan in 2008, had well over 4.5 million impressions last year and enjoys more than 15,000 Twitter followers.
Cameron has run the blog, by himself, and without monetisation in mind.
Geek bloggers will certainly be aware that Blogtor Who is significant enough to enjoy a good relationship with the BBC. McEwan gets access to promo pictures and even pre-screenings of Doctor Who.
Digital marketers, like this blogger, will be aware that Blogtor Who runs on Google’s Blogger platform and with a blogpost domain although the domain blogtorwho.com is included in the sale.
We’ve been reassured that the site will continue to run as normal but the news will come as a surprise to many people in the hobby. McEwan should be able to raise a pretty penny for the blog, despite the platform challenges and I hope he does very well from the sale.
