And that's an example of someone having something extra. Huffington owned the market and had something not easily duplicated.
I've been the recipient of a website sale that was 40X revenue - sold for a good sum and was producing diddly squat in terms of revenue.
I've also sold a website in a competitive niche that was producing a great revenue stream, for six months income. And was lucky to get it.
The OP sounds more like his site resembles my second example more than it does the huffington post.
