    Background:
    25 from somewhere in Asia.
    A father, husband and a full time worker in a BPO industry company, earning about $15-$20 per day (converted to USD from my currency). I am a computer enthusiast and an undergraduate of a computer course.
    I learned BHW though searches for some options that I can go to since I know that my legit work earning is not good enough to provide full support for my family, always need some extra for bills and such.
    Been looking through the internet for some alternatives and tried a few, started off with PTC but never found the success.
    I've read quite a few guides before joining BHW and tested last october. The test turned out well since I never thought off that I could even pass $1 from url shortening but was able to get at least $3 for the month of october (now it gave me a good reason to pursue since I know there is a market here). My test was with NSFW content, FB fan page + blogger + url shortener = $. That's how my Idea was, October was good, shed light on the IM that I wanted to be successful with. But just recently my page got banned because of my neglect, I posted some NSFW pictures that are not blurred/edited to hide what needs to be hidden. I learned from it and will move on this November with a new plan and new hope to scale things up to a higher goal.


    Goal & Plans:
    ? Earn at least $10 each from URL shortening before 2013 ends.
    ? Get at least FB, Tumblr and Twitter stable for traffic.
    ? Earn at least $10 each from ads (Juicy, Plugrush, Ero-ad) before 2013 ends.
    ? Earn at least $30 total all in all earnings from my ads, url shortening, image hosting.
    ? Use the money for buying webhost to scale up a little bit with Reinstecker's autoblogging guide :)
    ? Remake my FB Fan Page add Tumblr for traffic.
    ? Twitter (but I think I'm going togive up on it I always get bans every 24-48hrs)
    ? Make the source of traffic stable and add more pages and tumblr blogs.


    Why $30 for the remaining 2 mos?
    - I want a realistic goal that can actually happen, and not to frustrate myself since I know if I get frustrated or lost. Tendency is motivation problems and giving up.
    - I know it is not much but it is already a huge step for me in the IM world.


    I hope I would be able to at least strike my goal and be a successful IMer one day such as a lot of you guys.

    Thanks Rokebono.

    UPDATE:
    I already have made the 1st fanpage last 11-04 and now have at least 500+ fans (local page)
    Also made another page for international viewers less than 100 fans
    The first page will redirect all for blogger and the second one for tumblr. I was surprised that my tumblr was not banned after almost 3 weeks already.
    I am now using TumblRipper (freeware) to scrape off images from tumblr, takes a while tho with 1-2mbps speed (I know, broadband in 3rd world countries sucks big time lol)
    I am now looking for auto queue for tumbler, tried the TumbleStudio from Lordsef but to no avail.
    Any idea for alternative?
    Thanks :)

    Thanks, but I am already using Lordsnef's TumblStudio, was able to get a mirror link.
    And I'm aiming for little to 0 investment for starters that's also one of the reason why I am not aiming high for goal. Just $30 for me to start with and I'm good I suppose.

    Thanks for the motivation guys!

    UPDATE:
