    (I couldn't find a better place for this, so please move it if you see fit)

    Hello Hatters.
    Due to an increase in spare/free time I have chosen to jump into IM for the first time. I've been reading about hundreds of methods and systems and chosen a few to play with.
    This is mostly to get myself some experience, as I hardly doubt I will earn more than a damn dollar on my first projects.
    Just to mention the three I'm spending my time on now:
    1. Affiliate Webcams/Dating
    2. Site Flipping
    3. Blogging.

    As you might already have guessed, the one in question is number three. Blogging.
    See, I gave it a bit of thought when trying to come up with an idea that MIGHT pay off in the end. The best - and most unique - idea I came up with was a review blog about clubs/cafés/PartyPlaces in general. I'm sure a lot of you have already thought about this, if not already done it ;)
    I'm not looking for ways to monetize this idea just yet, as - as I said - I'm fairly new and just want this to add to my limited experience.

    Doing this "niche" - aiming at let's say the US would be retarded, as I'm sure it's Pretty obvious that I'm not native American, and because of the lack of experience.
    Instead I was thinking about doing this in my own language, and focusing on domestic places. I'm living in a small country with a population of only about 5-6 million, which would make my target audience significantly narrowed down - but still make it a lot easier for me.

    Now, It's no secret that there's still a lot of work to be done, and content would be the hardest part to obtain as I would need to hit the town many days a week in order for it to grow with a consistent speed. This is where I think I got an idea that might just work out. My plan is to create a giant list of Bar/Club/etc owners' email addresses and offer them the opportunity to review Their Own business. There's thousands and thousands of these, and if only 10% agree to this I would consider myself doing good at this point.

    I have done a bit of research, and only a Very limited amount of sites offer this particular "niche" in my country, and most of them have no user-supplied reviews, rankings, comments or anything. Implementing this with social features such as Twitter and Facebook, and of course fanpages/group for both "Could" "Maybe" help me achieve this.

    I'm sorry if this is an extremely shitty post without Any value to you guys what-so-ever, but I would really like some of you experienced guys' opinions on this.
    If any one of you have tried something similar, or if you think it's stupid - Or if you just want to express your view on this, Please do so. I really appreciate it.
    :)

    Based on the lack of feedback, I'll have to assume this idea was way too shitty to even comment on :p

    Dude, kindly make your question as much as curious and shorten. So that people would come across your question and share their best with that what they experienced earlier...!

    Good Luck!
