    ....the story so far.....my wife left me with two very young children that I adore and are the only thing keeping me going and over £20k of debt. I have tried everything I can think off - I have a full time job and have been making small bits on the internet which Ive been throwing at the debts - but its all getting eaten up and making no difference to our quality of life. Im missing out on so much with my children and these are the years that I will never get back - the bills are mounting up and although my parents have been great they are almost 60 and should be enjoying life instead of having to put up with me. Ive tried to remain positive throughout all of this and have been trying various methods of IM (again making small amounts but only short term). Ive always been honest, hardworking and put others first so Im not sure where karma comes into this as I feel so low, that Im about to throw in the towel with it all.

    I keep telling myself that £20k isnt a lot of money and in the overall scheme of things that kind of money can be made daily or over the course of a few weeks/months by the pro's - and in reality thats true as the internet is one of the greatest inventions ever. SO why cant I crack it and make my measily little £20k to get my life back - rather than having this huge black cloud hanging over me flast thing at night and then first thing in the morning and then having to act normal in front of my fantastic children.

    There are those of you that will say get a grip and man up, well Ive tried doing it the hard way maybe its time to take the easy way out - I just dont know what to do!!!!

    Never give up, and atleast explain what you have done, what type of IM.
    Software used? Blueprint? What exactly is not working. I'm not sure if you are asking a question or just venting. I'm no pro and im lucky if I make $100/mo, but im also very new, and am in a similar place as you. I can maybe help or give you info, I don't know how much you want to make, but you have to start small and scale up on something that works.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply glockson. I guess I am venting a little but also at the point where I dont know where else to go or what to do!!!!! Im one of these that has overloaded with info yet only recently started doing......I've made a bit with adsense but not consistently - and have recently started blogging down the amazon associates route using the follow software xeogen, market samurai, seo spyglass, autoblog samurai. I basically need to start earning £100 + a month to keep the wolves at bay enough

    I'm in the UK too... with a wife and kids. I've been making money online since 1997, and this current moment in time is frikken rough. Seriously.

    Having said that, there's still money to be made. It's just harder than before.

    Here's my suggestion. Sign up with affiliate networks (tradedoubler, AffWindow, AffFuture etc). Blob up a few datafeeds on new sites. Google will love them for a few days to a few weeks, then can them (sandbox, dup content). You may make some money while Google's loving the sites. If so, take the same datafeed that made some money and re-write the content then blob it onto a second, new site. Now Google will love it for more than a few weeks and you're golden. This is basically keyword research done for you by Google and then testing the merchant's conversions in one easy step. Follow the "wins".

    HTH.

    Think you could elaborate a bit more when you say datafeeds on new sites? :D

    Create a review site on a niche and use Amazon, Google Adsense and Ebay to monetize it. A few niches that are good are 1.) Electronics 2.) Bikes 3.) Online Colleges 4.) Get Ex Back Hope this helps you out! Use Google Keyword tool to help you find a good domain name and good keywords to use in your articles on your wordpress blog to get traffic form the search engines. And use Twiends to get traffic too. And comment on similar blogs as well. And use Forums in the same niche.
