    Hi all. My name is Hope and I am super new at this all. I am just getting into reading and learning about everything. This sounds like something I can do as I have been unemployed for over 2 years with no luck so far. Currently my only income comes from a game called Second Life and it isnt that much at all! I would like to earn a real income and am willing to work hard for it!

    So to start .. I don't know Anything about the IM world .. but I want to learn! Anyone that wishes to share any wisdom.. im all ears or eyes :)

    Bonus :: me and my hubby are doing a contest. First one to make it to 2000$ from different online ventures wins. He knows websites and stuff slightly better then I do, so I am hoping to learn new things here. I am open to any suggestions, ideas, ventures, etc. * No adult stuff please !

    About me, I am a 25 year old unemployed bum who does extensive Photoshop work on second life for my measly income, no official graphic schooling, but i am pretty awesome at it and can learn stuff very fast!

    So if anyone needs a worker, a writer, whatever ideas, Please feel free to share :) Thank you !

    - Hopey

    Ha! I've been there. I spent a year or so designing custom clothing on SL before sculpties made everything else more or less obsolete. Good luck on your competition.

    Hey Welcome Here

    You have the motivation that's great !

    Here what i'll suggest to you : Read, read and read here never stop doing it :)

    Once, you feel you are ready don't forget to take action.

    What you can do is starting to set up Wordpress websites on easy projects. Find the right plugins, get familiar with interface and set up and so on.

    To make quick money, you can start with fiverr proposing for a quick service you can do on photoshop (i mean very quick don't turn yourself into an asian worker)

    Start a facebook page, and a twitter account make them grow. (follow back feature, youlikehits, twiends) it will be useful after.

    Find some good methods out here and try to twist it and stick to it for a while.

    IM required some little money to start and invest, so if you start from ground zero as i did use the fiverr money to invest into outsourcing, services, trying new thing, software and so on. You have an advantage, ppl which are out of money (as i was) are more likely able to invest more than rich people (universal law ;))

    And man, be patient don't rush and don't give up. Don't start with seeing stuff too big and be open minded.

    Captivity of Negativity is your ennemy to think outside the box.

    The only way i can help you right now is providing you a custom free web hosting service. (My skype is hoststage) --> no hidden fee except for the domains name you ll need.

    GL

    Thank you ! SL is Very hard to make money on , but I have somehow managed to make anywhere from 200-600$ a month from my businesses on there, which is pretty darn good for it!

    I am hoping that determination will pay off in a different direction :)

    Ty Abysse! I do have the mind set that I WILL make money, its just a matter of when and not if. I know it is possible, but right now I need to learn how it is possible. There are soo many terms people are using here that I have no idea what it means, and soo much information to learn. If anyone knows of good threads to read, please feel free to share :)

    This might help you to some extent... BHW Acronyms: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ronyms-what-they-stand-must-read-newbies.html

    Initially it will be difficult for you to focus because of information overload. Stay active and interact with others. You will get some focus later.

    ty cyber :) I guess right now I want to read some and learn while possibly earning a small income. I only have limited income to use to invest to begin, so looking for ideas that arent a huge start up, or people that need someone to work for them while I learn things and get there on my own!

    This is to saltox.. you sent me a PM but apparently I am unable to PM you back as I just started!

    HI Saltox, theres alot of ways to make money on SL .. But it is VERY difficult! You have to have a skill in something, for me it was photoshop and advertising my studio in the game to get people to purchase graphic design from me. If you havent started in the game, you can check it out and play around , but do keep in mind, only about 1% of users on the game actaully make any money from it .. if youre one of the lucky few , it can be nice but its alot of work and skill! People earn money from building things such as houses, clothing, etc or offering services. But I would say if youre looking for a good way to make money online, SL would not be the way unless you are VERY good at something that relates to the game, its a difficult market to get into.

    Cyber, i wanted to ask if there was a thread with actual explanations of different words , not just the acronyms. For example what back-linking is , and explaining of it.

    A simple G0ogle search reveals all.
