Default What should my site be about?

So my webhost gave me a free domain and I want to make a site to plaster ads all over and make some $$

What should it be about?
I was thinking an entertainment site sort of like gprime, or maybe a joke site?

Entertainment gets a lot of people...so you can go with that, but be sure to include a forum.

I had a forum once, then bastard 1&1 made me take it down because it was pirated.

Don't advertise too much. People will get annoyed and stop coming if you overkill the ads, and people will only pay a lot to advertise if it's a popular site. Balance is key.

I don't plan on going over with the ads.
I've run a site for nearly 2 years now, I know how to place the ads, it's just what do I want to make a new one about?

And plastering a site with ads doesn't always scare visitors off....look at Toms Hardware

Oh. Maybe that's just me. I get annoyed by advertisements, but only if they're like the annoying "Shoot Cheney and get a free ipod" ones like they have on myspace.

Make it like gprime. Whatever you want it to be. It isn't like you're running a business or selling anything, or you're tracking any particularly remarkable developments. So you'd probably be doing something interactive, like a forum. You could even make something like that death clock thing if you took the time.

Or you could make it like Mattox' The Best Page In The Universe.

Then he'll have to obtain it..."legally".
