I am looking into a career change.
I was thinking about buying my own forum.

Anyone know what they cost to have a decent user friendly forum?
And how much it will cost to have a reliable technical person to keep it running smoothly?

It can be a forum about anything.
They seem to be hot items these days.
Any ideas what types of forums might be a good idea?

I have looked into this in the past as well and have found them to be rather expensive to run, especially when you get a lot of users. This increases your need for bandwidth, which drives up your hosting costs. Using Google Ads is ok, but realize a lot of people use adblockers. The template they use here is clean and userfriendly, but check with the tech guy here to find out the real deal on that.
