    Hey guys I just come out with an Idea last night: I've many old personal funny stories I wrote when I was child, also I've other stories of my friends, brother etc I was keep reading of these funny stories last night lol most of them are hilarious..

    So I don't know if this could be a good Niche but hey I tought why not to make a blog about these funny stories get traffic/possible clients with mail marketing etc and then sell all the stories on the blog on the kindle store for low price? Could be this a good little business investment? (I take I'll lose only few dollars and some of my time If It won't work)

    You're over-thinking something that might get a few bucks out of your pocket. How many stories you have there, and what is the average length of the story?

    Well it will certainly be unique content.

    What exactly have you got to lose? I always enjoyed writing and consider myself decent and probably above average with English writing (except on here before any smart ass pops up) but I've never had the nerve to produce anything publicly that I have written myself apart from a few website articles.

    If you feel confident about it then just go for it.

    Your idea has made me think of another idea that sprung to my mind too. I've always been told of should write about my life and thought it sounded stupid but a lot of my life is very funny and completely out-there outrageous at times. I wonder how that would go..... I've been in national papers, magazines, tv and radio with some of my funny life stories which i got paid for.
    Thanks for giving me the inspiration! lol

    Nope man! We're here in BHW to help each others! Good luck with your idea! I'd suggest you to read a book called like how to write funny stories and get paid, you can find something on the kindle/amazon store ;)
