    is it a viable method of making money?

    im thinking making a few hundred blog posts like

    25 best sci-fi books

    15 most enjoyable PC real-time strategy games

    10 fastest nvidia cards of 2010

    I think such posts rank high in google and are pretty useful to the reader. Also i think it will bring good dough from ads.

    Should i make 1 blog with this or make 100 blog*10 posts = micro niches?


    thanks for your insight blackmates

    It could definitely work. The problem is that most people don't stick with a blog long enough to give it a chance to earn. For awhile you will be writing for absolutely no profit. However, if you stick with it and post often you could have a decent site within a year.

    I would just make 1 big site to be honest. Some people are fans of micro niche sites, but 1 site is so much easier to manage. You will ALWAYS have fresh content posted, etc. It's really up to you though.

    a good tip from me:

    get some pics of a nice (unknown) chick and pretend that she is writing the posts. (especially on geeky topics)

    Go for the 1 big site, it will work better long term and make you lot's of money. Make sure you are really interested in the topic your choosing so you can stick to it. The micro niche way must be nice too but it's expensive to start. 100 domains = $600-700 even though .infos are cheap when they renew they are $6 ea. i think. So you will be paying $600 yearly and what if your sites don't make more than what you invest you will be losing time & money. Good luck

    also, how should i monetize the site?

    im thinking prosperent + fallback=google adsense.

    + put in some amazon links to every item.

    cheers


    edit. i want to post about 3 posts per day. Because it takes me 20 minutes to write 1 post. and i have other things to do and like my free time ;)

    do you know where i can find pics of nice chicks to pretend im one? so i dont have any problems? maybe its better to take pics of my friend?
