    I have been lurking for a few weeks now and have finally decided to take action. I followed reinstecker's method and currently have four niche blogs set up under sub domains. They have been online now for almost a day. One of my niche blogs had over 400 unique views the first day. Most of the traffic comes from Reddit. The rest of my blogs only have 40 unique views. I guess the other niches are too saturated. I set up SNAP (twitter and tumblr) on the first blog successfully, but when I tried to get my OAuth Twitter keys I received an error so I have been manually tweeting my pictures out on the three other blogs. In a way I feel like it is better since I can control what gets posted and I can experiment with different tags. I also placed an affiliate banner for a sex store which I feel will definitely drive some traffic there. I plan on keeping you guys posted at least once a week on my journey. Any tips would be appreciated and if you have any questions I will try my best to help you out. I also plan on creating 10 more blogs within the next week or so.

    Ill be watching this one close. As sad as it sounds, in today's society, sex is a huge market. Good luck man.

    Edit: I forgot to check Google Analytics on one of my blogs and to my suprise I had over 800 unique views today. I feel like these blogs have the potential. And thank you John and zsimpson.

    I am running all my blogs on Wordpress with their own subdomains of the main site. They all have tumblr and twitter accounts. 98% of my traffic came from reddit yesterday. I knew it would be a great traffic source, but I wasn't expecting that.

    Good stuff, How are you monetizing your blogs?

    I'm also going to venture into the "dark side" for some quick dollars.

    all the best with your first IM venture.

    Ah so you're doing sub domains. Nice
    What hosting are you with? Went and had a look at the thread you're following, according to most the suggested hosting is terrible

    Right now I have Plugrush ads up and Crakrevenue. I also signed up for the Pink Cherry affiliate program. It is a sex shop and figured and banner ad with some male toys wouldn't hurt lol.

    Why so? Pretty pleased with Arvixe myself. Anyhow - truly inspiring journal, I've been thinking of starting something similar. Are you sites very niche? (like, "old gay men") and have you done any IM in past?

    Following with interest, good luck!

    None of my redirects are working, not sure if this is their fault or cPanel, but it is very annoying. And the sites are just your basic run of the mill categories such as redhead and along those lines.

    I get aroused by statistics, would you pleasure us with some $numbers, is the traffic bringing in money, yet? Good luck man.

    Reddit is great source, however majority of the subs wanted a direct link to the image or use imgur/iminus.

    Are you using a mobile redirect ads on your wordpress site? In my experience that could put a lot of down votes from reddit users.

    Yeah you just have to find the subs where it is "recommended". And yes i am using mobile redirect ads on half the blogs. Yesterday I recieved 238 up votes on one picture. :)
