When i first started a forum, everyone said work hard and pour all kinds of money into the project. And, that it will eventually pay off. It's been a year and the project has not paid off. And, I really put a lot of time into it. Now my forum is taking away time from my paying job as freelance writer. Of course, the forum earns money but not as much as I earn from writing and blogging. Just wondering how long one should expect to wait to start earning more than a few dollars a weeks on ad clicks? And, also wondering if it's just not a better idea to scrap the forum and go to blogging full time.
