What do you guys think about celebrity-based blogs..Is there money here????

5 replies
I've always loved celebrity based blogs and just blogging in general...But , what do you guys think about this particular niche?

I mean, what do you guys think of in terms of profit potential,etc?

I mean, looking at plenty of those sites, there seems to be a ton of advertising on these sites (eg; dlisted.com, tmz.com , perezhilton.com)

Do you guys think that for an IM'er with a lot of free time on his hands and a HUGE interest in this niche can possibly make it in this niche??

THanks guys!

    As far as I know Perez Hilton has become a millionaire from perezhilton.com .
    He does 5 to 20 short posts per day. Heavy focus on pictures(he draws funny things on them). His domain name is also very catchy.

    Yes, you can make a lot of money in the celeb news niche, but you have to work really hard at it.

    I think the best way for us to find out is if you will try...Personally I've created a tribute lens for MJ when he died but haven't seen anything out of it except the fulfillment of some sentimental value for me..

    If you really like the celebrities I don't see any reason why you should not create a blog..as for the income I'm not so sure about it..

    Again, the best thing to find out is to create a quick one and send it out there..afterwards share us with the results..

    As HarrisonJ said, take Perez Hilton as an example of the power for celebrity blogs to make money.

    His blog has even turned Perez himself into a minor celebrity, a point he has monetized very well.
