    I've been reading a lot of journeys here and they are quite interesting to read that it always makes me inspired to continue working on my projects. Today, I'm about to start a new journey of making at least $2000 a month on an affiliate program called 'Infolinks'. You may ask, 'Why not use Adsense or Amazon wherein you will be able to earn more money?'

    Most of the Journeys out here are mostly making money about these two popular affiliate programs and a lot had success on them. There's no reason for me to repeat their success.So what's this project all about?

    - All newbies here will be happy to know that I'm going to start from scratch. I have no investment to make but just my skill in writing, coding and time.

    - Since I have zero investment, I will be relying on a free blogging platform called 'Blogger'.

    - My goal is to create multiple blogs and monetized them with Infolinks alone.

    - Contents are all around 500 words and all written by me.

    - I have some SEO knowledge such as searching for easy to rank keywords. Thus, I'll be targeting only such keywords to drive traffic into my blogs.

    If you have any questions and advice for me then I really love to hear them.

    I'll be constantly updating this journey as I go.

    To achieve the goal, I guess you need 15000pv day. 2000/30 = 67, based on experience earn about $ 10 per 3000PV. If you have all their hopes on blogger.com, I think you need time to reach the goal of one year, on condition that you have enough experience in seo.

    I can confirm. This is my stats on infolinks for this year: 27,673 page views 5,965 add views $8.45 profits. And this is from 5 blogs that I sell links on so the people click on infolinks regular. Very hard task! Good Luck!

    i guess that kind of program u promote is good for already established websites only. so u better target some affiliate sales with your skills rather than selling ad units.

    Thanks for providing your stats as my basis and I'll be attempting to reach my goal in less than a year. On this project, I'll be working pretty hard giving most of my time with it like 15/7.

    I intend to be working on more than 5 blogs. Perhaps a hundred maybe...

    I can always change the monetization of my projects if Infolinks doesn't seem to bring the amount of profit goal.

    Day 2

    - All what I did for the whole day was to write plenty of articles. I now currently have a total of 14 articles. It's very stressful that sometimes I do not know what to write. Anyway, I'll try to push my self a little bit more to accomplish a total of 50 to 60 articles on Day 3.

    Day 3

    I failed my goal yesterday which is to achieve a total of 50 to 60 well written and unique articles. I only achieved a total of 24 articles. On this third day, I got pretty much bored to continue writing articles so I'll might start to post my first article on my blog and to promote it on various social media for faster indexing.

    Good luck on your journey!! My journey too has a goal of $2k/month. Just be open minded to opportunities. I started with one service and 8 blogs I thought I was going to do SEO on. Thats turned into 2 services and a drop-shipping company in two weeks. Just be open minded and diversify.

    I get bored and frustrated too, so my strategy is to have multiple projects at once. When one gets boring or frustrating I take a break and work on one of the others.

    For article ideas why not Google your topic and just find topics that seem interesting to write about. You don't have to spin the article but you can get good ideas from searching.

    Hope some of this helps, GOOD LUCK! Quitting is the only way to fail.

    This is a great journey so far! Infolinks are great if you keep them to a minimum.

    Thanks guys for wishing me luck :)

    Day 6

    1st Niche

    - Posted now a total of 3 live articles.
    - Webmaster tool is working great at indexing my new published post in just a matter of minutes.
    - Post are indexed by Google but my keywords are yet to be found on the Search Results.

    2nd Niche

    - I have written an additional 10 articles making it a total of 15 articles.

    I think that I need to outsource some writers because I'm doing around just 5 to 10 articles a day by myself but since I stated above that I'm starting from zero investment - I have to do it by myself. Thus, this journey may take some time before I can start showing you some stats and profits from my Infolinks account.
