    This will be my first real attempt at making an earning in the IM world. I have zero experience when it comes to any of this so the way that i'll be gauging my sucess isn't in how many $/day I can earn it's going to be more what I've learned. Obviously money is a great motivator and that's my long term goal but this will be more of a "getting my feet wet" kind of journey.

    The Plan

    Porn auto-blog. Very simple, will be following Reinstecker's spoon-fed method with little tweaks and twists to try and optimize for my specific niche. I have a very specific niche with quite a few sub-niches all very closely related. I will be using social media to drive traffic to the blog and I'm going to try different things for monetization. As of right now I have plugrush widgets trying to earn me some daily $ with cpm, crackrevenue PPLs with camsites and dating sites and crackrevenues mobile redirection. These may change throughout the journey as I test different setups to see what will work best for me.

    I wanted to start this a while ago but I didn't have enough posts to do it so I'll get you up to speed with whats happened so far.

    April 14 - Bought Domain/hosting 7.00$ for the month
    Bought 10 private proxies 12$/month
    Just under 20$ spent to get things going

    April 24 First sale on crackrevenue 2.00$ for a camsite trial
    April 25 Another sale this one for .47$ not sure exactly what it was Geomatic redirects people in different countrys

    April 26 So currently I have 9 autoblogs going with the corresponding amount of social media accounts. Twitter has been locking some of my accounts pretty fast thought. I've been using the proxies and making sure there's no cookies or anything like that but in less than 12 hours new ones get locked. I'll have to wait on these till I get my new phone (sometime in the next day or two). So 6 twitter accounts running with about 200 followers each and growing everyday all specifically targeted for my niche.

    Between all my blogs I'm averaging 1000 visits per day. My CPM with plugrush isn't doing very well though. I'm lucky to get 5 sells a day with that. Took a look at the options today and I had sell traffic selected which I think might have something to do with it. They don't have a lot of categories that fit in with my niche so selecting that could be why it's not doing to well. I'll know tomorrow when they update the earnings.

    Money spent to date 19.00$
    Money earned to date 2.50$

    It's a start personally I'm quite happy with the progress made so far. I was running into problems all over the place in the first week. It took me 3 days to get my first autoblog done. Now I can do one in and hour and a half. I'm going to get one more made and work more on my social media presence. I'm on twitter, tumblr and stumble. I don't think stumbles doing a whole lot for me. Twitters bringing me lots of traffic on the accounts that aren't getting locked. Tumblr is growing slowly but steadily.

    If you have any comments, feedback, advice or questions I'm always open to it. This is first and foremost a learning experience for me.

    Arvixe suspended my account last night or this morning sometime. I've been using too many resources for my account. Arvixe has been nothing but problems for me since I started. I will be switching over to host gator and trying not to lose everything I've done so far.

    Yeah thats between 9 blogs just under 1000 visits/day not 1000 each. The twitter accounts are growing at different rates but they're average followers is around 200 each.

    Today looks like it's going to be a right off (the first half anyway). I was hoping that I'd be able to get my site back up and running before i had to go to my day job. It does not look like that's going to happen. Looks like I'll be able to switch over almost painlessly but I guess we'll find out.

    I figured I'd go with the vps hosting so I wouldn't have anymore resource usage problems. I only have 9 blogs and I plan on scaling it up so it will be well worth the money. Once I get to 10 blogs I'm going to play around with the monetization and try and optimize it before I scale it up.

    Just kinda stuck in limbo right now....

    Purchased 3 months of VPS hosting w/ hostgator 100$/3 months
    Purchased 10 private proxies 12$/month
    Domain name/hosting 7$
    Total Spent to date 119$
    Total earned 2.50$

    Still waiting on my vps to finish propegating. Hopefully will be able to get most of the site back up tonight. The waiting is brutal...

    I'm not atm I'm doing it all manually. If I go through with scaling it up that's definitely something I'm going to look into.

    I'm doubting that my site will be back up today. Worked on my social media accounts. Managed to get all my locked twitter accounts unlocked and starting to gain followers. Not much else I can do right now. Hopefully things will be finished setting up early tomorrow and I can get a few things done before I have to go to work.

    Sever still propogating.... Overnight though I gained almost 400 followers on twitter. That's pretty good for less than 12 hours I'll check again tonight.

    I don't know how much longer progating is going to take. 24-72 hours it what they say it's hard to stay patient it's been three days since my website had been down.

    What is the issue with your server ?
    And propagating of DNS on .com domains never takes 24 hours its usually instant on 1hour maximally
    So they are telling you bs..

    It's fine it's just a brand vps and domain name the email they sent me back about it said name server changes take 24-48 hours to take effect. It shouldn't be taking this long

    Trust me,name server changes dont take 24-48hours for .com domains you are looking for 1 hour or less but most of the time its instant.
    I guess you did something wrong..
