    Hi,
    Let me present firstly. I'm new on this forum, so it is normal that you don't know me. I'm in the internet marketing world now for two years, more seriously I started in the middle of January 2015 when I contacted a person, which helped me and I'm very thankful to him. I learned some great things about SEO and aff. marketing. My first earnings at IM were when I created a blogspot page and put there Clickbank aff. links(that was in 2012). After a week or two I got a sale and my first 20$. I got excited and I decided to more take a look on how to make money online. Back in 2013 I started my first AdSense website with own domain and hosting, which wasn't so successful, but still brought me 300+ ?. I learned a lot from that website and I have to admit, that I have also made a lot of mistakes. :)

    What I have now & how much I'm earning?

    Today I have the first AdSense site and some other websites. Two of them are bringing me money last 7 months from Amazon affiliate program. Currently I'm earning around 200-300$ a month. Last month I passed 300$ for my first time. Actually I made 380$ and also had my first 100$ day earning. I have made a few websites with little content 2 months ago. I realized that they don't have so big earning potential, so I put them aside a little bit. Last and this month I was working a niche website which has bigger potential earnings. Till now I have written 22 post and put them on schedule. Done little backlinking and made social profiles, so it looks legit and like a brand.

    What are my plans & goals?

    I plan to take my current websites bigger and move them to higher level, especially two which are already bringing me money and the new one which I was building this and last month. In the future I'm planning to create even more niche websites (I have already some niches in mind). Want to mention here that I want to build websites for long term, so they will stay in the SE for long time.

    My first goal is to reach 500$ a month.
    My second goal is to reach 1000$ a month.
    My third goal is to reach 3000$ a month.
    If I reach and when I reach to my third goal I will be more then happy and I will buy a beer or two for you. :p

    Why I'm writting ?

    I decided to write this because I want to stay focused and motivated at my work, help others(mostly newbies) with what I know and also because I want to hear opinion and recommendation from more advanced users on this forum.
    I will try to post updates about things I do at least once a week.

    What are my problems?

    My biggest problem when building websites are getting quality backlinks for long term rankings(If someone has any recommendation I will be very happy if you can PM me :)). I spend a lot of time searching & doing them. Beside that, I'm a student, so I'm some times very obligated with school and it can lead to not doing me nothing for IM for a month or more.

    What I don't share?

    I won't share my niche and the theme, because there are a lot of copycats and because of that I would get even more competition.

    Hope I will reach my goal(s) as soon as possible and you will learn a lot in this journey. I will update this first post if there will be anything to add.
