backstory: my wife and I make an average yearly salary. but this fall, im going back to college at the age of 31, and i dont want to work at the local gas station just to make ends met. i dont have a "million dollar pipline dream" i just want to make ends met. so here goes; im considering making a news site (either for sports, tech or other good topics) using wordpress and a custom domain. and to break about even, i need to make about 50-60$ a day from ads (adsense,banners etc) this is really all i want. is this possible for an average almost-nerd? (my geek level: i know a few things about everything, not everything about a few things) if 50-60$ a day is possible for an average guy like me, then i have a few followups: 1. is adsense the way to go, or is things link text links and banners better for these kinda sites? 2. can i make this kinda money from autoblogging, or is this a nono? (i know google will hate my site, so prolly no?) 3. automated RSS feeds?. also nono? 4. adwords or SEO?. if i have to pick one (i`d have to outsource the SEO i think) which one is more important? remember that these questions are linked to the questions (50-60$a day in revenue) if you think its not going to happen, what other kinda things can i do? amazon afilliate page better? (using joomla + virtuemart for example) pour your knowlegde over me BHW`ers! sorry if my engrish was bad, im from europe thanks in advance!
