    would it be a waste of time reviewing individual episodes of a tv series and posting them on a blog site? walking the reader through the episode and sharing your thoughts. there seems to be a few sites like this and i'll sometimes run into these blogs when I'm trying to figure out what just happened in a series i'm watching. It seems like a good side project especially for someone who is constantly watching a tv series.

    Just wondering if it would be worth the effort in the long haul once there's a decent amount of posts. Would it be harder to get search traffic since there's already a bunch of tv blogging out there?

    The niche is kind of tapped, but if you can generate enough traffic, you should be able to get it to work out. Just remember to market a fair amount through social media and other such things. It may be a bit harder to gain traffic, but with work it can work.

    Your best bet is to promote your TV blogging websites via social sites like Facebook, Twitter etc. That way you would get a regular stream of traffic and as the popularity of your Facebook pages and twitter accounts increases. You can't just rely on organic traffic from search engines. The real money is made through social marketing.

    As someone who has run into those sites before, before you get started think of a twist to the sites you were at. What were they missing, what did you hope to find but didn't. If you're going to enter a saturated market, make sure you think of something unique that you can bring to the market that gets people wanting your product over everyone else's

    In this particular instance... I always get frustrated when those blogs just recap the episode without any sort of insight, commentary, or otherwise. I always find myself searching after a good episode to think "did those people see the same things I saw" "what theories are out there as to why this happened" "any sort of hints into what the next episode is going to have?" and other sort of individual postings on it.

    Also, try to monetize in a way that's different than just cramming ads down your readers throats, especially if you're going to be in such a focused and targeted audience, you can do a lot of damage with affiliate sites for DVDs, cool products, and other related things instead of just ads.

    As Nut-Nights mentioned, you can always try adding your own twist to make your website more appealing. For example:

    • You can try targeting a specific network.
    • You can target a specific television genre.
    • You can write reviews on re-runs.
    These are just suggestions that I have done much research on, although you should get the point by now.

    No! Go for it. If you can add your own twist, write good unique content, and do it daily - then you will make money! Especially if you're writing about shows you actually watched and enjoyed. If you follow a lot of tv series' then it is a great idea for you to run a tv blog.

    Come on, if you're going to watch the shows anyways, you might as well try to make money from it. So having a lazy day once a week to sit around and watch a bunch of tv can be profitable for you, it's the master plan. Lol. Jk. But seriously, go for it, you won't regret it.
