6A Acquires LJ

Email This Entry

Posted by Ross Mayfield

Six Apart is acquiring LiveJournal, according to Om Malik. The result is the largest blog vendor, and a fairly independent one at that.

LJ is a web scale hosted service at 5.6M users, with 1.4% generating $2.325M/yr. 6.5 million users combined, or blogspace is 40M users including bloggers and readers, possibly if you assume the Pew study, but that would be 80% of blogspace when you stick journalspace in the peanut butter. And all this stuff is growing.

Update: It’s official, 6A/LJ Press Release, Mena’s Mood: Optimistic, Brad’s Mood: Excited, Six Apart Interview

Nothing official on that yet that I can find, though there's no denials, either. :)
