Is it worth launching a blog to earn income?

I have an idea for a a niche blog which could provide valuable information to people who need it. There is very little competition for this topic. But I’m not sure how to monetize it or if my expectations are reasonable.

I already have a full time job and for it to be worth my time to launch this blog I would need it to generate at least $800 per month.

I estimate that I could get around 10,000 visitors per month. Not enough to make decent money with Adsense. I thought about using referral or affiliate programs but who knows if enough visitors would be interested.

I’ve built profitable websites before but they all were for businesses which sold some product or service. I’ve never setup a blog which generates income in a passive way.

What should I do?
