    Hey everyone, a bit lost right now. I'm having difficulty finding/creating a method. I'm currently in highschool (I find it incredibly easy) and I have lots of free time.

    I've tried Instagram CPA, but it seems kind of stupid. Very boring, you never know if you have bad proxies, bad accounts, bad phone numbers, or if you just get an unlucky ban. Plus the concept is silly. Someone (usually a kid) goes to your page, downloads an app, and you get a little bit of money. Feels like a drain on resources and a waste of time. I'm sure plenty of you have success with this, but it's not for me.

    I've also dabbled in affiliate websites, although I never got too into it. This is my thought process:
    Whenever I want to buy something, I first check Google, Amazon, Ebay, etc. The last thing I'll do is go to some guru website promoting the product. If I would never use a website like this, why would I expect other people to?
    I realize that this is not a good philosophy, but guru review websites repulse me and I just don't understand the appeal. I won't get into the reasons here, but if you want to know then comment and I'll post them.

    Anyway, I'm looking for something that I can use my programming skills in. I consider myself to be very good at programming and computers in general. I have plenty of experience with Unix/Linux and tons of experience in Java and Python, particularly web scraping and botting. Also, a functional understanding of XHTML/HTML5, JavaScript, CSS, and WordPress.

    I'm not asking for people to put me in a highchair and spoonfeed me money (although I wouldn't stop you), I just need some ideas.

    Please comment any suggestions you have, but I'm mostly interested in tools, bots, or scripts you want developed.
