Are there any basic methods to making money with ones own forum? I do not currently have one of my own so I would be starting from nothing. No particular niches in mind. If done right it would make sense that the users generate most of the content and you just monetize that somehow. I have some ideas but I'd like to hear it from experienced people. Also, if anyone has specific examples, past or present. That would be great too. I just can't find any specific info on this topic on BHW. Thanks!
