I love programming. I have been involved with it for about 13 years off and on somehow. Playing around reading books and tutorials learned a little but never got serious. A little over a year ago I got real serious and buckled down and learned more in that time than I had in the past 12 years. I am somewhat knowledgeable in 3 languages but am not a good enough programmer to start knocking out programs to sell and probably will not be for quite a while. I know I could do a good site but can't really find a way to monetize it. I could probably take about 6 months and do an e-book of tutorials on one of the languages. I was thinking of a membership site with tutorials and other goodies.
I just can't find any affiliate programs in this niche. Amazon but I would have to get a lot! of e-book sales to make anything.
I also was thinking of offering programming services and outsourcing the work. Not quite sure how to do that and I think I could get myself in trouble there. Basically I am a hobbyist and someone looking to get a job done could start talking some stuff that I may know nothing about and I could get in trouble.
Basically I want to work in the hobbyist/indie side of the house and I lean towards game programming. I have not even been able to find any PLR on programming.
I can do tutorials on my site but how to monetize it! Any ideas?
