I've checked out all my competition and although there are lots, I believe I the path I want to follow is completely different. Nobody has done what I want to do, although different sites have different elements of the super site I want to create.
The only problem is time. Now I don't care about short term money. In fact, I'm quite willing to work on the content of this site for a good six months before I start marketing it.
My articles are mostly over 1000 words. I do enjoy writing about my passions but I still have a lot of research and tweaking to do, after all, I want my content to be unique and totally worthwhile to my readers.
The plan is to work hard over six months and get the first 300+ articles out, then after I have good enough content to begin, I will start article syndication, blog commenting, SEO etc...
My niche is pretty stable, so it will be like an investment. The content will always be applicable, at least it will be with updates every year or two.
So after explaining my story, I have 2 questions i'd like to ask.
1- Is it worth it to throw all my eggs in one basket for a site like this, and would you ever do such a thing?
2- Do you think sites like this provide an income that could be considered passive? (I'm not saying after 300 articles, but more like 1000)
P.S. It's in an area of the travel niche.
P.S.S I guess i'm looking for someone to say NO, IT WILL NOT WORK (if i'm completely barking up the wrong tree)
