    Kbklash,

    I'm sure you could sell it to someone else. The question is for how much. Generally people looking to buy websites that are up and running are looking hard at ROI (return on investment). Things like how much traffic the blog has, it's history, its long term viability as well as if it has been earning money already are important questions to answer. If you just have a blog with some content and a popular name, it probably won't be worth much. If however you can show that the site has huge potential to make money or is already making money, it could be worth a great deal more.

    Here is a post that talks about the 10 best website valuation tools. Perhaps you can find out how much its worth there,

    Best,

    Automated valuation tools are worthless - they are never accurate.

    If your domain has windows8 in it then it's not worth anything. Some idiot might pay you a few dollars, but Microsoft would easily be able to take it down if they wanted.
