Hi, first I want to say that i'm not a noob in IM and websites building, in fact im a professional web designer with lots of experience at hand. Just yesterday I had an idea for a website and i'm currently trying to figure it out if it will work or not. So basically it will be a website where users will come and submit their stories or experiences (i'll implement a user generated content function). I chose the niche market, I know my exact target audience and demographic, but there's still these questions in my mind which I'm yet to find answers for: Why would people share their stories and experiences with the internet? (The 'writers') Why would people come to read those particular stories? (The 'readers') Any help and/or ideas will be highly appreciated.
