After a few days of lurking, researching, etc. i have decided to make my first attempt. My starting goal is to achieve 400/USD month -- with no time limit. I need to succeed. I will be doing this with a couple of different methods, all of which will be relying completely on my skills as a programmer. These methods consist: * two niche twitter bots * two niche tumblr blogs ran by bots * MMORPG gold farm I don't know how exactly to monetize twitter, but I do know that I can run ads on tumblr. The best part about all this is, even if I "fail" I don't really fail, because I will have built up a few bots that I can use for my portfolio. Day 1: Blog #1 - Traffic : 11,239 views (4,000 were bots) Blog #2 - Not started Twitter #1 - Not started Twitter #2 - Not started Gold Farm - Not started Total gains: 0.00 USD I'll try to make a reminder for myself to post updates weekly, as I have a lot of things to do until this is completely automated. Side note: I am using yllix at the moment, does anyone know how long it takes for them to estimate earnings or anything like that? I figure a day in, they'd have some type of estimation.
