If you want to start a new blog, you should visit your local book store. Check out the magazine racks and pick up some ideas. I still have over 50 domains that i have parked on godaddy. I don’t have to time to launch new sites but i was thinking that i should at least put up a blog on each domain. I know that i don’t have to update often. I just want to grow each domain to where it gets over 10 hits a day. That way, it’ll be a lot easier to start something when i free up some time.
The age of a website is one of it’s assets. The older a domain and website is, the higher the selling price. If you’re like me, you’re probably a domain name freak. You probably do random domain name searches. I have so many 5 letter domains, it’s not even funny. I have all these ideas, but not enough time. So instead od developing a high concept site, i should just put up a blog. That way, i can age the domain. I can get some traffic via free sources. Doing this will make it easier to work on later.
I was over at sitepoint late last night. I was looking thru the marketplace and i came across a windows visits website. That site was making around 5k/month and selling for 55k. I went to the site and saw nothing special. I felt like i could set up a windows vista blog that could be better then that site. I’m not a windows Visita expert, but i think i could make a pretty cool vista blog. All i would need is a book on vista. And i would have a plethora of info handy for my posts.
Whatever your hobby or interest is, you should start a blog about it. If the blog starts getting traffic from search engines, then you could make money off of it.
