    I made my first $ with the 10 Micro Niche Sites that I currently run. They used to earn me about $100 a month on Adsense. It's been about a year since I started them, and profits have dropped to only $30 a month because I haven't been doing SEO on them.

    Before MNS, I tried a couple offline methods, ewhore methods, and some bittorrent methods. My problem was expecting to make money quickly with little work, so I'd try one method, be disappointed, and move on to the next method. Still am disappointed at my current MNS, but I am earning something, so I should really work to build those and increase my earnings there.

    Once they start bringing in some good, steady cash, I think I might try my hand at Youtube methods.

    My first money online was made when I went to the launch of the XBOX 360 bought one for $399 and sold it next day in Ebay for $800 :)

    But my first real IM money was with an Amazon website $16 bucks.

    Lol nice, man.

    I did the same for the PS3. I was one of the few lucky ones that sold mine for a nice profit. Bought the $499 version and sold it for $800. I remember eBay prices on PS3s kinda plummeted after the first few days simply because almost everyone was buying the console to resale.
