Hey Buddy, Want to Run a Web Site?

As some of you may have noticed, SF AwardsWatch is looking for a new owner. This is an offer for someone to take charge of the web site, lock, stock, and barrel. The site makes no money, so you'd be doing it as a hobby expense (domain and hosting costs, plus your time to keep it updated).

I'm willing to stick around doing what I consider the janitorial work (clearing comments and tossing spam) if a new owner wants me to do so. That assumes any new owner keeps it on the WordPress platform it's currently using.

The costs of owning SFAW aren't very high, and I hope someone does come forward willing to take it off of Cheryl's hands, as I'll be sorry to see it go offline. I think it provided a valuable service by trying to accumulate information about SF/F genre awards and report on as many things as we could. We did, for instance, provide live text-based coverage of the Hugo Awards a couple of years ago, breaking ground for coverage that I suspect will be consider Standard Operating Procedure by next year.
