I'll second what 7-driver said. I'm a biggish fish in a smaller pond, but I've got lots of content 3,000+ pages of articles plus another 15,000+ pages of forum content indexed by Google that brings in additional traffic. Sit down and think of the topic areas that interest you the most and then think of the website that could provide that information the best. It's better to narrow down the niche and totally own it and then slowly expand the coverage. Be nice, make friends, and stick around for the long term. I've been working on my site for 6 years, and only really started making my living from it in the last year or so. I absolutely love the topic, so I have no problem keeping interested and disciplined.
