My largest hobby site, CoffeeDetective.com, has made me an average of $45,000 a year over the last 5 years. Not bad for a site I work on in the evening and at weekends.

But if nothing immediately comes to mind, I have put together a slide show of 101 topic ideas.
Here it is.
If none of those topics jumped out at you, use them as a springboard to related ideas.
For example, while vegan recipes may not be your thing, some other kind of cooking or food preparation might be. You could create a site about baking cookies, cooking for the elderly, meal planning for kids, homemade ice cream…and so on.
Do the same with other topic categories.
In the slideshow I mention archery and mountain biking. But those are just two sports out of many. Your site could be about running marathons, competitive swimming, tennis, or one of dozens of other sports.

The slide show shares 101 topic ideas for your site, but for each of those topics there are also numerous related ideas.
Once you have one or two topics that interest you, the next step is to
