Hi Everyone. Hope you're all doing well, especially the folks on the east coast who may still be recovering from Hurricane Irene.

I want to share an 'easily doable' idea that can potentially bring you an ongoing stream of income for years to come. It's not meant to replace your day job but it will help you earn more money than you would if you were to place $300,000 cash in an interest bearing bank account.

So the idea has to do with using RSS feeds to create a news portal. I know many of you will say Google News has already done that and Google Reader and many other RSS Readers are meant for this purpose. I agree with you, the technology is there but it's also true that millions of people still get their news by hopping from web site to web site, repeatedly checking each site to see if there is any new content. I am not just talking about headline news from sites like CNN, this applies equally to niche sites on all kinds of topics.

What if you could make it easier for people to scan through headlines of news that are of interest to them and earn some Ad money by doing so?

Here's an example of a news portal targeted towards the fashion minded crowd:
