Some background: I have been working on and developing a blog behind the scenes for a couple months now, I have a solid launch plan and not only is it a solid niche but there is a big demand for what I am planning on doing, actually I am rushing to finish before someone steals my idea or does it before me. I have previously had a personal blog / youtube channel in a similar niche with some success (never tried to make money off it but couldn't have made much) I have a very successful review blog in a different niche that makes decent $ per month through amazon affiliate. My new blog is an involved image voting system that rewards posters and voters as well as referrals. I plan on using tumblr because of the picture / image focus and integration. However there isn't a ton of info on how to make $ with a SFW tumblr. I was debating using an ppc advertising but I have been thinking there should be enough traffic that I can sell off advertising space directly, has anyone had any success or experience doing this? Or am I best to go with a ppc since the traffic will be high and target the adds at my niche. How much money can you make doing this, and is there a way to monetize the actual individual images without linking to a site with intrusive adverts? If you have experience I can give your more details about my project.
