    I started yesterday. Though the inspiration came from Ernest.

    I have installed wordpress on my server and installed all necessary plugins. I had problems installing Wp-o-matic. It gave me a hell of a problems so I decided to dump it and used Digest Feed. It installed proper in about 30secs.

    Then I started fetching my feeds. Initially i had propblem with the feed. It was set up to use cron job and for 19hrs or so, i did not get any update. I do not know much about codes so i changed the settings to "update automatically as soon as there is an update." Time I gave is every 30mins. I was warned that i should make sure that i am the administrator and be careful so that my ip would not be banned due to high traffic.

    Right now everything is working. I have over 200 pages on my wordpress. but i have just got one more challenge.. My adsense. its not showing despite the adsense plugin set up i have done. Does anybody have any suggestions to this?

    That will be all for now.. keep following me as i would give every step i took to get to $3k per month.

    Update!

    Now I have gotten me adsens to work. How did I do it? Well it was something I read up from some wp money making manual I found here a long time ago. I dont have them any more.

    Here is what i did. I went to the theme editors page. On the right hand side, I saw all the pages that made up the theme. I went to headers.php and pasted my adsense code in but I could not save. So I went back to my ftp area and CHMOD the headers.php file to 777 (writable).

    I refreshed the page and tried again. Then i saw the "update this page" link. I pasted my adsense code in it and updated the page. i checked my blog and wala there it was.. my adsense code..

    I did same for searchform.php. Now i have my adsense ads running in all the now 400 pages.

    More updates to come.

    This is what I need.
    I started few autoblogs in the past, with wordpress and all the plugins, and all the bells and whistles you can imagine of. They generate no traffic whatsoever (and therefore, no money)...
    So I'll follow you if you explain things well like if I was 6 :)

    I started my autoblog journey about 3 months ago, although I didn't set my goal quite as high as $3K a month.

    Autoblogs are only automatic in the sense that they generate content. In my experience they still require a lot of work to get them ranking. Traffic doesn't just appear automatically. Keyword research, on page optimization, backlinking, social bookmarking and other methods require work. My goal for now is $1.00 a day per site. I'm not hitting that yet.

    Good luck and congratulations on getting started.

    Updates!

    I couldn't register in reddit. My connection is getting real slow by the minute. Anyway i have just freetrafficsystem. 30 backlinks if my post is approved. I used the free service of pingler.com to ping my blog (just the index page).

    That will be all for today. I will resume tomorrow for more updates

    One quick tip is to mark your messages as "Draft" and then check every day if every thing looks good, make some minor changes to the text/images and then "Publish" it.
