    I have a website I have been growing for a while and I would like to be earning enough to support myself by the time I am 18.
    Here are my daily plans!

    -Make an article
    -Growing Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus and Facebook with Mass Planner on a VPS
    -Submit article to Stumble Upon, Reddit, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus, Facebook and Tumblr


    After I have a fair amount of traffic from social media I expect to passively gain some keywords in google. I will eventually intentionally target keywords in google but I am not as of now. In my experience social media does not suddenly give me a burst of traffic but I will get a slow trickle every day after I spread the article to all the sites. The trickle will slowly increase over time.

    I do not have a certain money goal I want to reach but I will set one anyway.

    Goals:
    5 USD/day
    10 USD/day
    50 USD/day
    100 USD/day
    500 USD/day
    1000 USD/day

    I will not be posting here on a daily basis, but I will update sporadically when I feel it is necessary.
    Lets get started!


    As you can probably tell I love color!

    Why does it matter that you're 17?

    The number of colours in that post is mildly terrifying.

    Just created an article and submitted to all the social media sites except Facebook and Google plus. I will start to work with those once I have a bit more traffic and authority.

    I usually get downvoted to oblivion when I post on reddit but I actually have 5 upvotes now! I believe the way to get upvotes is to make the article simple and well articulated. I've gotten 17 visits to my site after about 15 minutes as well.

    "Why does it matter that you're 17?"

    It's just interesting, I would say. Especially when you consider how many 17 year olds are lazy video game playing idiots with no sense of work ethic.

    I'm writing them myself for now, I'm going to hire a writer or two once the site grows.

    Mostly adsense although I will be using amazons affiliate program and other affiliate programs occasionally. It is purely whitehat so I'm trying to use affiliate links in only about 10% of the articles.

    Good luck on your journey kid! Start small, start slowly and all your efforts will pay off.

    Just made another post and submitted it to all my social sites except Facebook and Google Plus. I got 83 views yesterday and have gotten 20 so far today. I'm going to start growing my Facebook page with Massplanner although I will have to grow my Google Plus page manually as Massplanner doesn't seem to be working with Google Plus.
