    Hey i am a newbie just trying to learn things.
    So i hope you would give me your valuable suggestions about what i think.

    So i wanted to ask you following things.

    now, i am creating a new blog at blogger.com and i have started posting some stuff there.I would keep this blog for 1 month and then i will flip the blog at flippa.com.As for getting some traffic till one month, i will send some free junk traffic to blog.
    Do you think i will be able to sell my blog there for atleast $15-$30?

    please tell me what you think and what more should i do to sell this blog?

    As it's a blogger blog I would save your time and effort now as you can't sell a Blogger blog, you don't own that blog, you just have an account with Blogger.

    As for sending junk traffic to it inflate the traffic stats, nah, that's not really a nice thing to do either.

    I'd concentrate on make a blog on a domain that you own and build real traffic to it and then flip it.

    You can only sell something that you own. I think it's against Bloggers and other free hosted sites T&C's to sell blogs that you set up.

    You can try it and someone may buy it but it's not the best thing to do. You can get a months Hostgator hosting for 1cent and a .info domain for 99cents so that's a dollar all in.

    People dont care much about traffic as it can be skewed. They would want to see proof of revenue. Rule of thumb the price would be 3 to 5 times monthly revenue.

    Better idea for you is to look around your neigborhood and see any one/companies that might need a simple website. Offer your service to them. You will get more than 15 - 30 for sure

    how many blogs you wanna create and sell until you can pay your rent?

    better get the right idea, create something unique, get traffic and then flip
