    Better to post in JV section regarding this. Also how much you need , where to spend , strategy , and contract of investors protection. Make a chart and post it on there.

    The traffic is the only number that interests the "investors". If your blog is new and has less than 1000 UV/day, there is 0.000001 chance of find any kind of "investor", doesn't matter how hard you try.

    However, if your blog has decent traffic, you can try to manually look for people who advertise e.g. on Adwords for your niche and contacting them for partnership. I have done this successfully in the past, so I know it works.

    You can find investors only if your blog has potential for generating a reasonable amount of revenue.

    Maybe rev share with a reputable member here where they can provide traffic, and you provide content. Then you have to agree on monetization methods, etc.

    @Hollaatu then why wouldn't the reputable member outsource the content and cash in 100% of the profit?

    Make a solid plan with realistic expectations and people will want to invest.

    If it's a new blog, hell, don't spend too much money putting into it on content. Especially if you know your niche like you say you do. Put in some work, get a buddy to help out. You can literally build a good site out of nothing, just takes a little time. Unless you know what you're doing, and have a kickass niche, it's gonna be hard for you to find an investor.

    You can find investors only if your website has prospective for developing cost-effective quantity of earnings.
