Infopreneur biz idea feedback needed

edited June 2008 in Selecting a Business
I recently found this forum and am hoping I can get some feedback from those who probably know more than me! I have an idea for an online business that would put me into the “infopreneur” category.
I have a Master’s degree in counseling and did practice in the field for awhile, but am now home with my children full-time. I would like to use the education and skills I’ve gained to put together a website for women that focuses on self-help and advice from a counselor’s prospective (I will NOT do counseling online). It could cover several areas including relationships, parenting, and women’s issues.
Here are the ideas I’ve come up with for content:
*Q/A - anonymous questions for a counselor that I would then answer and post in a searchable area of the site
*Indepth book reviews on relevant topics
I’d like to know your take on the viability of a site like this and your thoughts on money making  ideas for the site.    
I need your feedback!!

    Thanks for your reply! Actually what Anne Landers has done is along the lines of what I was thinking about. I just don`t want to start long-term one-on-one counseling relationships via the internet because I am concerned about legal and ethical issues. I would definitely want some type of disclaimer on all pages.
    I``d like to use WordPress as I think the blog style would be easier to work with but I could still have a fixed front page (if I understand what I`ve read correctly).
