On February 21 I fired the first shot in the war. I drummed up a call to arms, a call to stop procrastinating and to enter the Niche Travel Site Battle. The Battle concept is simple, 5 Travel Blog Challenge members have committed to building up a Niche Travel Site from scratch and be completely transparent about our process, highlighting both successes and mistakes.
This is the War Room, where you can find updates as they come in by my fellow soldiers: Mike from Exotic Visitors, Adam from World Travel for Couples, Kieron from Don’t Ever Look Back, and Norbert from Globotreks.
Since the first battle plans where drawn I have made Two Important Rule Changes. 1) We can now spend as many hours as we like, but we have to keep track and report back on how much effort we are putting in. 2) We are no longer limited to 10 pages. If one of us hits on a profitable niche it would be silly to be constrained. So 25 pages is the upper rubber limit, UNLESS you have a fantastic (read $$$$$, fame, rides in jet fighters) reason for increasing the page numbers.
The updates will last for 6 months until the End of August when we will crown the winner who will be the one who makes the most net PROFIT from their site.
