Question Please Review Idea....

Hi all,

I've started to dabble with a research site that is intended to provide a knowledge bank of mainly free research sources. It is more of a concept review rather than a website review as I've made it myself and is far from finished/up to par. I have the following questions:

- it is worth it!? Should I continue
- would others find it useful?
- ways to make a modest sum from it?
- I'm aware of several websites that give advice but non that give a comprehensive list sources. Is anyone aware of such sites?

After working in this environment for a while and seeing the below on businesslink it got me thinking...

"Like most companies starting out, we needed to research our target market but didn't have limitless cash to pay someone to do it for us. Doing it yourself is cheap in money terms - but you have to invest your time if you expect to get anything useful out of it. Over a period of three months, I went on a virtual fact-finding mission using the internet. If you persevere, you can find an incredible amount of quality information for free, including market reports and expert analysis. Business consultants' websites, industry bodies and sector-leading companies are a good place to start. I focused on data from reputable sources and used it to help formulate a business plan"

Thanks for any comments in advance,
