I think that the book model works. Don't you also spend time reviewing books? The writers get money for their books

The monetization model I've seen for Knowledge transfer is: The content in your site is your business card for consulting/training business.

The nice thing is that it gives you a global audience and clients.

But you have to make clear that you are available for travel, and advising where you are traveling so other potential clients can jump in cutting travel costs.
