Well I've decided to make the plunge and focus on black hat a little more. I started in the world of web development in 2006 when I created a fan site for my favourite band. It's currently still going - and doing pretty well with over 13,000 members, regular posters, high serps etc.. but it's been a bitch to monetize. I'm currently running adsense as my soul source of revenue on it and it generates a daily sum thats hardly worth mentioning! I know that the lack of revenue is probably due to my own errors but the truth is i've lost the passion I had for the site and just leave it running as it is without doing much to it. So right now i'm just experimenting with various marketing techniques and seeing what else I can do to generate some cash on the web and maybe focus on a new site that I can gain some passion for again. So that's pretty much where I've came from and why I'm here. Glad to be a member on BHW. I've been enjoying reading the topics so far!
