    I have a wordpress blog set up on a domain. The domain is not really related to anything...it's just a goofy name I came up with on a whim. What kind of content should I put on there to potentially bring in a little income? I'm not asking you guys to write this thing for me or anything. Just maybe some ideas for a general interest blog. I'm very impressed with just about everything I've read on this forum so far, so I'm sure your answers will be top notch! :D

    Pick a topic that you actually enjoy talking about and then write about it. Once you have that, you can easily find some affiliate/CPA deals to promote along with Adsense.

    runbmd-

    You can either go the niche or micro-niche route, looking for a more concentrated audience, or else the ones with the broadest audience, like news, entertainment or tech. Either way works, you just have to market them differently.

    Jagged55 has a good point, also. If you pick something you have no interest in, its kind of hard to keep up the motivation to stick with it long enough for it to start paying off.

    Good luck and keep posting! :)

    I second dhamma_man.

    Also, if you want to earn money and not blog :p you should decide firsthand, you would like One Premium blog, 4-8 medium blogs or autoblogs.

    In my opinion, first set one blog, learn how to play with it, and then choose 4-8 medium blogs, that you can concentrate and handle on.
