    Hello everyone, Chris here. I'm writing this thread out today, however the official Journey doesn't start until tomorrow. During this journey I will set my-self a few goals, some of them will be what some would call "baby steps" while others may never be reached, however that is why this is a journey...

    As stated in the title I'm going to be using AdSense and this is because of how easy it is. I mean seriously, you just slap it on a page and take a nap, okay, not really, everybody knows that there is more to it than that, but the concept is pretty much there. I'm going to be using YouTube and a Blog for this. Throughout the duration of this journey I will post Expenses/Earnings to keep anybody that is interested updated.

    I know people are going to ask and I know people usually don't enjoy sharing the niche that they have chosen, but my chosen niche(s) are Programming/Technology. So, that's just some eye-candy for everyone to pick at.
    Section 1: YouTube and AdSense.
    So, I'll go ahead and explain and let you guys know what I'm doing here. I currently have three videos on YouTube, these were uploaded last month and are extremely targeted. Not only did they target a specific application, they targeted a plugin for that application. These videos are actually getting views, surprisingly and I have no promoted them. I am currently sitting at 2,155 views with an estimated earning of $6.02. Please keep in mind that these videos will effect my Journey, however will not be advertised throughout it. My videos are going to be non-copyright educational videos and I am planning on releasing a video a day until I complete an 50 episode series that I have written out on paper.


    Section 2: Blog and AdSense.
    Considering I'm new to blogging, this will probably be the hardest part. While I enjoy writing and I consider myself decent with my English some others may not agree. I'm going to be writing my own articles and the over-all plan is to create an authority website, granted this is in a pretty saturated niche so it's going to be difficult, but as they say, "Content is king, and distribution is Queen", unfortunately for me, I'm not experienced with SEO and don't really have any advertisement background. So, hopefully the content that I'm able to provide will help me out until I can afford some services.


    Section 3: Goals.
    My goals will be green once they are accomplished.

    • $1 per day
    • $2 per day
    • $5 per day
    • $10 per day
    • $20 per day
    • $50 per day
    • more to come...

    So, Just uploaded my first video and "applied" for monetization. I've gotten a community guide-line strike for a video that had nothing to do with anything in the past, so now I always have to go through a ridiculous authorization process for monetizing my videos.

    Uploading and Rendering Video 3, that's all for today.

    Looks like my videos are doing well in the "Suggested videos" as they have only been up a few minutes and they are already getting some attention, I'll need to do some studying on proper ranking for these videos to see if I can rise to the top.

    UPDATE:
    So, Apparently editing a thread isn't allowed after awhile. Okay.
    Anyway, my videos have reached a total of 20 views. I've done a bunch of keyword research today for my blog and found a few keywords with 200,000+ monthly searches with low competition.
