Quote from: deadnewton on April 16, 2008, 12:39:30 PMis it possible to make money at all from forums?
Quotei really would like to hear from admins who live off of forum(s).
Quotei believe most forums are NOT created to make revenue.
Quotei travel for my job. i hate it. -- i would like to take a local job for less pay and have an ad-based forum as a 2nd income.
Quotei realize a forum is a lot of work, especially in the beginning.
Quotei believe the user base would have to be monstrous so my board(s) would have to be in demand...
Quoteare you succeeding at earning a notable revenue?

In the first months i was in the red spending money on directory's infact i made a tally sheet to keep trace of how much money i spent on hosting and web directory's it accounted to a little over $1000 (hosting $5.95/month) January 08' I made $198 but with the economy slowing it declined to $120
