No need to set the plank too high at the very start: a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush!
If you have ﬁnally decided that it is time for your site to become something more than just a hobby, you probably have your own reasons, be it compensation of costs for a domain name and hosting, acquisition of an immediate proﬁt, or a long-term plan to make your website a permanent source of income. Whatever it is, you should clearly outline your objectives and proceed accordingly. Try not to stray too far away from your initial goal. And remember - no need to set the plank too high at the very start, do it slowly but go forward all the time.
And always keep in mind, you can only make money from your website if you are able to catch the attention of your target audience. That’s why you have to invest maximum efforts into adapting your content to readers’ needs and interests.
