    Hey what's up everybody!

    I've been lurking on this website for about a couple years now. I've made cash here and there from doing freelance jobs but I've never made steady income. I can dedicate six hours a day to accomplishing my goal and maybe even more on some days. I will work hard because I'm quite done with constantly being broke and not doing anything about it. I figured that its about time to take action and stop playing on the victim role.

    This is my journey to 60k for 2013. I will be documenting everything that I'm going to do over the remainder of 2013.

    I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to get to my goal yet. Although I have an idea of some of the things that I want to implement. I'm a newbie at most of these things and I will pretty much learn as I go along.

    -Writing Articles- I write fiction stories so writing articles will probably come easy to me.
    -YouTube/CPA- I don't really have much experience with YouTube and CPA. I have tried PPD with cleanfiles and I didn't make any money with it so Im trying CPA.
    -Authority Sites- No Experience.
    -PPC- No Experience.
    -Amazon- No experience.
    -Movie Site/CPA- No experience.

    I am also registered with three CPA companies. If you feel like you have any helpful thoughts dont be afraid to share them! So let's get started.

    Day 1: YouTube CPA 362 days left 0$

    I go through so many journals and I don't feel like there detailed enough so I'm going to list every step that I do (without giving out my niche) to help some of the other newbies out there. I also feel like I have to write things out first before I implement them so that I don't hop from one thing to the other.

    A. Since a lot of newbies start off with YouTube/CPA, I figure that I will do the same. 60k/ year equals to somewhere around 180 dollars a day so I have a long way to go.

    Today I'm going to buy a domain from godaddy for 0.99 cent. They are having a sale so it's not the full 9.99 like it usually is. I'm also going to buy hosting with hostgator. I'm going to use a coupon code to get the first month for 0.01 cent. The coupon code is 001PROMOCOUPON. This will enable you to get the first month for just 1 cent for baby and hatchling plan. All other plans take 9.95 off.

    I'm setting up a website because I plan to use a content locker from one of the CPA companies that I have signed up with. When a visitor visits the site and they see the content that they want, they will have to fill out a CPA offer to get the content. That's where I will bank. Hopefully this will get me by until I want to splurge on Content Locker Pro v2.

    B. From there I'm going to set up a website with Wordpress and I'm going to find a nice template that will look good with the things that I'm trying to promote with my niche. Hopefully this won't take more than a couple of hours to set everything up.

    C. After that I'm going to research some niches that I can promote on YouTube. I will focus on niches that are anywhere from 6,000-30,000 search results. Examples- video games, movies, tv shows, etc. Basically I will use the YouTube keyword research tool to find some niches to make videos on. I might search around for other popular niches on YouTube as well.

    I'm doing this step first before I create accounts because I want to see if it makes a difference if I name the accounts after my website and niche (establishing trust factor).

    This is all of what I will be doing today. If I finish all of these things before I go to bed I will research on one of the six ways that I can make money. Thanks for tuning in!

    Day 2: 360 days left 0$


    Hey guys sorry I didn't check in yesterday. I was having problems with hostgator. They wanted me to send in my ID and credit card so I had to go with another host. I'm actually using a fellow BHW members hosting (2011nfl) now and he runs a pretty good service. Anyways I finished getting my website together and researched about twenty to thirty niches that I'm going to be making videos for. Here's the things that I will be doing today.

    A. I will be making twitter and facebook profile pages that are going to be linked to my site. Im going to try to make the site into an authority site while promoting videos on YouTube that link back to the site. I've been doing some research here on BHW and a member on here broke down the way to rank on YouTube.

    Basically he said that no longer do views solely alone rank videos, but view length+ views+ some social signals. So thats why I'm setting up twitter and Facebook pages. I don't know if that's correct so I'm testing it out. So...

    B. I will be making six videos. Two videos divided over three accounts. I will research my competitors videos for their titles, tags and descriptions and record them. I will be recording my computer screen while I go through the steps in a tutorial format. After that I will watermark each video. Also I will research ways so that I can have higher retention views when I do upload them.

    Program that I will be using to edit is going to be either Sony Vegas or Windows Media Maker.

    C. If I finish that I will start writing some articles to put on my authority site.

    Thanks for tuning in!

    Most fail coz they go hard, burn out & quit - just keep going!
