I have a Youtube channel based on Web Development tutorials where I average 1000 to 8000 views per video. I make around 1-2$ per 1000 views on Youtube. I have never owned a blog before just forums. How is earning from Youtube different from earning on a blog. I have a lot of interest in this niche since I'm a professional developer and can post content on a daily basis. But I am doing it for mostly for side income. I want to create a forum for web development niche (I know there are tons already). I love having discussions and being creative with forums and sharing knowledge with like minded people but like I said, I have a family to feed and bills to pay, if I'm not earning money I feel like I am wasting time. My question is, can I make money from a web development forum at all should I stick to doing Youtube or merge Youtube + Forum? I have heard that tech savvy people don't click on ads so these type of websites don't earn anything.
