    Carreira’s Epic 5 Site Journey:

    Hello there guys, I’m Carreira and so far I made 1 failed and 1 successful journey here so far.

    This journey will, hopefully, be on a scale widely different from the others as I embark on an epic adventure, where I start 5 projects and build on them daily, giving you guys updates regularly and keeping myself alert for what is happening with each one of these sites.


    The sites will be:

    - Site 1: An article site with geek stuff monetized with Adsense;

    - Site 2: A Gourmet Wine Site monetized by Amazon;

    - Site 3: Yer Old Review Site with Clickbank;

    - Site 4: A Video-Related Site with both Adsense and Amazon;

    - Site 5: A YouTube Channel!

    In my last journey, I sold a site for $5k, and that’s why I’m starting this new one, to multiply on what I do best – Site Building.

    I don’t know if I’ll sell them or keep them, depends on what each of these projects have to offer.

    So, without further ado, here are the stats for TODAY:

    Hello there mate, the site isn't with videos, but about videos, it still is made up of articles, but the topic is youtube, twitch, vimeo, stuff like that.

    I dont know how much time it took really, I crank 10.000 words per day no problem though.

    I am a writer yes, but a pretty high-end one, I prefer low workload and high pay - but for this journey I am not considering any income other than the one from these 5 sites, with the monetization methods mentioned above.

    Carreira’s Epic 5 Site Journey: Day 5

    Today I worked on 3 articles only because it was my Mother's birthday.
    Made:

    1x 900 words article
    1x 400 words article
    1x 450 words article

    Published 2 of them and one I didn't publish because the strangest bug happened on my wordpress. The visual editor disappeared completely. Will tackle the problem tomorrow (I hope it fixes itself.)
