    So i created a site for me and my friends that play Battlefield 3. I did it just as an experiment to learn how to use wordpress and work on my social networking skills. I also opened a FB fan page and a twitter account for my clan. With the help of TweetAdder I'm up to 620 followers which I got just by using the automated tweet search and searching keywords such as, Battlefield 3, battlefield3, bf3, etc. My twitter page brings my wordpress page alot of traffic and alot of people want to join my clan LOL.. Any suggestions on how to make $$ with it? I posted a picture of our logo on a t-shirt as a joke and people wanted to buy the t-shirt lol. But how about adsense, or maybe some affiliate links to game sites where they can buy games. Any help is appreciated. You can check out my site below:

    That is a very big question you have! Just start with adsense to begin with and generate some good content and traffic...then reassess. :)

    use cafepress and sell the t-shirts. maybe there's a clickbank product for battlefield3. you could content lock the primary areas of your blog.

    Simple surveys and email-submits related to gaming, maybe you could try selling special gaming-mouses and stuff like that (as an affiliate). edit: noticed it's for ps3, you could try selling those analog-grip things that supposedly improve your aim, or special controllers. Easy to do with amazon.

    You can also look into OfferVault for some gaming CPA for monetization.
    Also, when I click on your FB or Twitter, they open directly on same page. Try to change them to open in a new tab or new window.

    Thank you all for the tips. svixth why do you think opening the FB, Twitter, etc links on a new page is better? Interesting :)
