    Hello,
    I'm thinking about writing blog about music, album reviews, intresting news, photos from festivals and just my minds about stuff. So what ways would you offer for monetizing it?

    I own a music blog that followers a specific rapper. I rake in 900-1000 per month off 1 clothing affiliate site. There is also a affiliate program called, "mog" type it into google. You can also try iTunes affiliate through linkshare... although I HATE linkshare. THey do not track well at all.

    Instead of making a general music/review website I personally would suggest finding a specific artist.

    Just make sure you can generate the right traffic.
    It is really hard to just start up a new and broad music blog.

    You need to have a specific niche, just like bhayx said.
    Follow one rapper, or band and target that market specifically.

    As far as monetizing goes, I know there are tons of music related cpa offers you can use. Also, you can do affiliate marketing for many products.

    Try finding some monthly fee music sites that let you download whatever you want as long as you pay by month or year. I think that would convert pretty well.
