    I am having a site which is getting around xxx visits a day(Tech Blog) and it makes some X$ a day. The point here is that the site is having a trademark in the domain and I released about that later.
    So now i am confused whether should I keep it until I receive the C&D order or sell it off ? :(

    depends on what the trademark is.. for instance anything to do with brands like amazon and co will be taken down if you don't give it to them. but smaller trademarks will not mind or will not even check if there are some tm violation.

    Else sell it off to someone else after milking it

    Well, its a mobile network operator of US like sprint, atnt, verizon etc

    So is there a risk involved?

    I can be risky even if it is not a big gun. Trademarks are trademarks and protected by law.

    Just keep it until you make money. Flipping it can get more attention which may preclude a C&D letter.

    This thread makes me want to start buying TM domains. I always avoided buying those but what the hell, no venture taken, nothing gained. Right?

    Drive it until the wheels fall off! When you get a notice then toss it.
