Almost two years ago, I started Volleybuzz, a site for high school and J.O. volleyball players, coaches and parents. And somehow, I forgot all about it.
I had a lot of grand ambitions for the site, and somehow just lost track of time and interest. You know what the ironic thing is? With only a couple thousand visitors a month, coming to see the same old stale content, it does a massive CPM of $7.43 with click-throughs around 6.7% on simple Google ads. That's insane!
I started the site originally because most everything on the subject sucked on the Internet. Truth is, it still sucks. I've never seen such an underserved market. But even more weird is that maybe people just don't use the Net in this space. That seems impossible to me, considering our region of USA Volleyball does everything online to manage its 12,000+ members.
I need to decide whether or not I want to sneak in some new articles there. I have plenty of stuff in my head, it's just not always easy to translate that into actual usable content! Goes back to that not enough hours thing.
