I completely agree with HCChris and blunderbuss. Sure those types of websites are popular, but if you don't have the passion or desire to start a website dedicated to social media news or a general blog then it won't generate any revenue.

If you're interested in gaming, then find your niche in gaming and make a fun blog based around talking about the latest games, play modes, etc. Make it unique from your competition, maybe talk more about indie and/or mobile games. You get the idea.

It has to be something that YOU enjoy doing - otherwise it's going to fall flat.

An idea clicked on my mind that let's assume I want to make a specific game blog. How would it effect if I first promote it with fan & brand pages of social networks like FaceBook, Google+ etc.

Before making my website live if I create a fan page for it & gather a community to discuss new things about that game & when there are a lot members I would enter my website link in that fan page & make it live.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Ok. What's your USP, then? What's going to elevate your blog above everyone elses?

I agree! Do what you're passionate about.

Nothing can become a weight around the neck faster than a business one does only for the money. Creating a successful online business is hard work and takes a lot of persistence. When you do something you don't particularly like, it can be like pushing a stalled bus up a mountain all by yourself.

When you're passionate about what you're doing, it doesn't eliminate the work. But it can take the edge off it and make it less arduous. That little extra ingredient can make the difference between failure and success.

I completely understand this "Passionate" thing, but the problem lies in deciding which niche to jump in because I've a lot of passion for gaming, blogging, angling & photography.

These are the activities I'm addicted to but most of my time is spent on a PC so that's why I decided to go for a gaming blog & forum.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!
