    IF you have zero interests in life, you are going to have a very difficult time making a website.

    You've purchased an excellent domain for branding.

    In a nutshell, there are two types of domain names you can buy. A keyword domain, where the name is related to what the website offers (search.com), or a branding domain name, where the domain name could mean anything, but is short, memorable, and unique (google.com).

    What should you do with the domain name? If you don't have a product to sell, blogging is always a good idea.

    If you plan on starting a blog, I recommend you use Wordpress. It is easy to setup and easy to maintain and if you ever want to sell the blog, most buyers want to acquire content compatible with a Wordpress database.

    What should you blog about? If you want to be successful in the long run, pick a topic that interests you because that's the best way to avoid writers block :)

    Once you picked your topic, find others writing about similar things. Then, try and come up with a unique angle/approach and go from there. Make friends with your competition, not enemies! If your content is unique, and you have a well branded name, the others writing about your topic might eventually link to your site.

    The next step is to profit, make one hundred billion dollars, and give it all to me because it was my idea.

    I'd agree with the others and say you should do something that interests you.
    The reason for this, is because you're not likely to make money in the short term.
    With hosting and marketing, you'd be lucky to make $0 an hour. When I was younger, every site I made was in the red. I kept with them, because I thought it was fun, and I wasn't doing it for the money.
    If fun is the main component driving your website forward into existence, then you have a better chance at succeeding, because 90% of the business decisions you'll have to make to keep your site alive will not be profitable.

    Like DigitalPoint said (woah, DigitalPoint himself :D ) make your site about something you find interesting. That will make it easier. There are tons of ways to express your interests on a website; blogs, forums, indexes, product listings, etc.

    Just as an example; when I was a kid I made a site based on a video game I played. It had a forum and tournament brackets, and I used it to host tournaments/display winners. The site never made money, in fact I ended up donating around $5,000 of my own money in tournament prizes by the time I stopped playing and gave the site to someone else. But I had a whole lot of fun, made a lot of good friends, and I loved every minute of it.

    In all areas of marketing, you need to find something that interest you and then incorporate trends and things the others might find interesting into the mix. You will have a hard time keeping motivated if you pick something you don't like talking about. Blogs are always a good choice or providing some sort of service.

    He bought what he thought was a cool name and has no idea what to do with it.
    He doesn't "need" to start a website, he "wants" to.

    He'll still be some way off from a business plan, competitor analysis and all those other tasks you do when starting a BUSINESS.

    agree with @njfail also @deceth
    you just like me in few year ago lol *sorry for that

    you can start with personal website
    share everything you know ..tips and trik..new movie.. lyrick
    everything.... even new gossip ..lol *sorry again.. that the last one

    after your website have many visitor you can ask some friend to put advertise in your web with a little contribution and maybe you can put adsense

    that will add your money not much but not bad for start
    if you want more ask to the adsense master for detail

    good luck

    do something that will make you the most money, for example:
    -definitely don't start a forum
    -not a directory
    -not an article directory
    -not a personal blog (only if u wanna track down your progress)
    -not a social bookmarking
    -not a social network
    -not many others types that many other people will say u should.

    instead, maybe try clickbank and buy some unique keyword domains instead. start a few wordpress sites in that niches and build your empire from there, and ofcurse good luck!

    oh and since u can write articles about some topic, find a product in clickbank for that topic and buy a unique keyword domain with proper keyword research and drop all your articles in that site, and then just scale it with other products and other domains.

    Start an Amazon affiliate site.
    Begin by being an affiliate for a product that you are interested in, that way it is easier to write content for.

    Start a blog about houses all over the world for example. Every day post what you want to be your dream house. Or a travel blog. Invent stories where you would want to travel :)

    Like what most of people said here, do something you like, your interest, your passion, the fields that you are good at. Inject "quality" and "time" in it then everything will just follow. Good luck :)
