I'm questioning whether I should start my IM career by trying to build a niche site where I try to make a few hundred per month that will give me some breathing room financially as I create my long-term goal of making a blog that promotes a product that I make. It could take a couple years before the blog makes a decent sum of money and I've heard it said that niche mini-sites take less time to make money.
I'm just worried that the niche mini-site market is saturated and that the probability of success for a noob like me is too low for it to be worthwhile. On the other I have high confidence that my long-term project will make money eventually. I'm just worried about running out of money before that.
I'd appreciate any advice.
