choosing your topic

what topic to choose to earn money online...If your aim is to create a popular website or blog - perhaps even make money online - your sites will need to appeal to plenty of people. Specialist interests can attract surprising numbers, but if the subject's way too obscure, you'll probably find yourself with an audience of several rather than many.

On the other hand, the web is already full of sites covering obvious areas such as fashion, music, food and travel. Opt for something too mainstream and you run the risk of getting lost in the crowd.

Think about it carefully. But even if you've already got something in mind there's one more issue you'll probably need to consider before you get going.

website or blog?

Yep - these days we're spoilt for choice when it comes to online options, though luckily anyone can start making money with either format (OK - we know that blogs are really just another type of website, but hopefully you can see where we're coming from).

So - will you opt for a 'classic' website, or go instead for a blog? And what, really, are the essential differences?

If you need help deciding, we've listed some of the main pros and cons for each. There's a lot of info here, so view or hide it just as you wish.

We hope that's helped you make a decision. And now let's get to the best part - setting up your site!
