Hello, I've been a quiet reader of this forum since a couple of months and loved to read the different journeys you already posted. Because of that, I decided to post my little starter journey as well. I want to scale my new (first) website (blog) to 1000$ a month with Adsense & maybe amazon affiliate. My Background: I've never done a website/Seo/AdSense before, so I'm a complete beginner. Since 3 years I'm totally into Social Media (Instagram). I have built several Accounts to 1M+ Followers. This year I sold my biggest IG Account (2.2M Followers) to a huge Puphlising company. Now I still have my 1.4Million backup account, which could be helpful in this journey. On my "day job" I consult companies in social media and manage one of them. My Goals: 1k/month "nearly passive" income from the website (build an asset) learn a lot in Seo and UX get to know this community and network What I have done: My website is live for 8 months (had a nearly 5-month break to work on other projects) I had 24.034 Visitors and 33.003 Pageviews in July and earned 119€ with Adsense 99% of the traffic comes from Social Media (85% Pinterest) Built a Pinterest Page for this Website (66k Followers - 2M impressions per day) I will probably update this journey every Sunday with a weekly recap and with new goals for the next week. I hope I can learn a lot from you and I'm very excited to start this journey with you.
