Hi,

I have been researching a particular topic for about a year now. I think that I would like to make an informational site about it. I wondered about ways to make some money (at least to cover hosting, publicity etc) with the site. I have very strong reasons to NOT use google adsense/adwords. I have these ideas. What do you think and can you think of any more?

- a cafepress store
- sponsored articles on products I approve of
- selling a print-on-demand journal/book

Thanks for any ideas.

I would say offer an e-book too that can be downloaded from your site. Give them a few teaser chapters too.
