AOL is to buy  Jason Calacanis‘ Weblogs Inc blog empire, PaidContent suggests (rather proudly). According to the report, Calcanis did the rounds with Yahoo, News Corp and MSN before signing a deal with AOL. Estimates suggest the value of the sale could reach $35m.

Weblogs Inc has a network of about 80 fairly standard blogs and a couple of gems (Engadget and Luxist). This deal is a great sign for the future viability of blogging as a successful business model, I feel.

… hmmm, so if PSFK has three blogs that would mean our value would be $35m/80×3=?? ;)
