It's my first thread here :-)
I'm not a completely newbee in IM, I have some adsense and amazon sites which bring me some dollars a month.
Now I would like to start a site (with big S, good, content-rich, helpful site) in a niche, which is my passion, and something I know, can do good and can explain to others.
All gurus suggest to choose a niche according to passion and interests, so I want to follow this advice.
Another advice is to choose a niche, where people have problems, pains and actively searching for soluions and relief.
The niche I am interested in and going to start is knitting and crochet.
So my question is:
Is it possible to make a living in a knitting niche? After some researching I found out that most sites in knitting and crochet niche earn from selling Amazon books, yarn, or from Adsense. Not so big profits I think. I understand it's not a hot niche and I wouldn't not be able to make millions in it. But what about earning a decent income?
And I know all this stuff like: "Give first, and then you will get", and "Only hard work pays best", and agree with these words.
But I wouldn't like to find out in some month of hard work, that I chose a wrong niche. I'm not only thinking about making money, I really want to share with others the knowledge I have, but I also want to make money out of it.
What do you guys think, should I go for my passion and make a quality site with good info, or choose something what sells better, like weight loss og dating?
