[epub] Ezine exit strategies

> I've been wondering about ezine exit strategies
> lately. The options
> available include:
> - selling your ezine itself to another publisher
> - selling your ezine reader list to another
> publisher/advertiser
> - announcing to your readership that you'll no
> longer be publishing it
> - just stop sending out your ezine
> What others exist?
> Which would you consider acceptable and ethical?
> How would you handle the process itself?

Other options (And being somewht handicapped not
knowing why one wants to stop/get out):

Keep it in existence but:

Offer it for free to the subscriber who has most time,
energy, and motivation to keep it going.

Offer it for free to committee of susbscribers.

Keep ownership and offer a rotating
editor/publishership every 3-6-8 months.

Ask the same question of your readers as you did here.

In closing it reminded of one of the first answers I
got to to the exit survey I used for my first ezine (I
now have six ranging from monthlies to weeklies).

Please feel free to add any additional comments! Your 
opinions are appreciated!  Thank you for you time,
your patience, your goodwill  - - - and for being a
warm and sensitive human  being.


PS: Her out and out bluntness of her distaste for the
results of my time, energy, and hard effort made me
laugh out loud.
Cantu says, Antion is a personal I friend I recommend:
Market and Sell Products and Services While Sitting at
Home. Tom Antion is no techie, but he's discovered how
to use his computer to keep speaking engagements and
money rolling in siting at home with his feet up.
