    Hey guys,

    I see lots of journeys here, so, what was the method you used as a beginner ?

    I made my first $300 via Adsense + SEO traffic, made another $2000 but got banned because of invalid clicks.

    Good old times, since than I'm searching/testing different methods.

    Since everyone starts with Adsense, I was fooled and put 100% effort into EMD sites.

    I used the method "walk your ass to a game company and beg for a game tester job". First money I made on my own, Internet related. Learned alot of useful skills, met a big bunch of great people and ironically I got familiar to the term "discipline".

    BHW's Hire a Freelancer. I made my first
    dollars from there. You can really make
    money from IM without spending a dime.

    I began with a Linux blog and took it to pr4 with good backlinks-- then they came by easily. Adsense did not pay much but i was still happy. Then i concentrated all my efforts on good posts and white seo.
