    Hey guys:)

    My initial thread was here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...al-1000-e-per-month-adsense-noob-journal.html
    However, I decided to make another one, a more detailed one, just to keep my motivation up. I see around all these people make huge amounts of money, and so far, although I've been n the IM/SEO/Copywriting sector for the last 2-3 years (or maybe more, but that period doesn't really count as in those days I was more interested of bux-like sites rather than on SEO) and yet, my earnings are average and are most of them from content writing for the other people.

    However, I just can't "fool" around anymore. I'm 23 years old and considering that I can't afford to go to college and that I have no other job, it's time to get serious. This time for real. 2 years and a half ago I ran from home with just a laptop and some clothes. At that moment, I promised myself that I would work hard and prove myself that I'm capable to sustain myself and even buy a car and a house someday, that I would work hard and so on. Somewhere on the way, however, I kind of lost myself. The only thing that I am proud in this period is that I became a powerlifting champion back in 2010 when I was still a junior. However, that's about to change. This is why my plans for the next year are to challenge myself and work the full year round and see how much money can I earn in one year considering that I am a single man army.

    I'm not a party guy, nor do I like to go and hang out with my friends. The only time when I "waste" time is when i do and work out at the gym and when I am staying with my girlfriend (although we're living together and she's being really supportive with my so called career), therefore I have plenty of time to work.

    Why am I writing this thread at almost 2:00 am in the morning (in my home country)? Because I need a fresh start and something to keep me motivated. My plans are not to earn only from IM as much as possible as any kind of money is welcome :D However, if plans go as they should, most of the earnings will probably come from content writing, Adsense, affiliate websites and paid blog posts.

    As for my work, I will only work with authority websites. All developed from scratch, by me (only the content, obviously, as I have no technical knowledge). Currently, I have several affiliate websites that are on the front page in Google.ro, but another 2 big projects I am working at: one of them is on bodybuilding niche and the other is on the health niche.

    Oh and yes, I almost forgot: my main goal is to have $5000 in my bank account on September 1, 2013. That being said, I am off to work:D
    Feel free to ask me anything.

    PS: here's a bonus:


    And no, this is not "another one of those threads". I know how is it to not have anything to eat or where to stay, and God mark my words, I don't want to repeat those experiences again.
    So, watch me earn $5000 or maybe more...
    Thanks for stopping by and for reading my thread.

    seems like you're smart and write well, why don't you try to write articles for some start up cash? If you hate typing, use the voice recognition software already included in your windows 7 to write (speak) it out for you. you could join a cpa network and create youtube vids sending people to your offers. The Sky is the limit

    Never you mind.
    All I have to say is, its up to you how much you will make. But if you want $5000 by September, then get going. Read everything you can here, make some friends and don't stop until you reach your goal.

    I hope you make it!

    Your goal is definitely doable. To earn some quick cash you can start with some Adsense sites and then move on to other areas. If your a good writer, that is another way to make some cash to fund your future endeavors. There is never a shortage of content writers around, ESPECIALLY, strong ones.

    "You can earn as much as you can."
    It's how much you can learn and put into action
    and don't be lazy and search for some quick
    easy methods.

    Authority site and affiliate sites.. you can definitely earn
    more than $5000, but only as much as you feel comfortable.

    For affiliate/review product promotions look into
    these threads:

    Guys, I think you misread a bit. I don't want to make $5000 in one year, I want to SAVE $5000 in one year. That's quite a difference if you ask me.

    I need a bj, if you are good then $100 per full mouth. /Sarcasm Off

    To be really honest, if you don't work smart, be sharp, and out do the massive amount of idiocy running rampant through the IM world right now, $0. I am amazed daily by posts, crying, and many other things going on all over the web today. If you really want to make money, it is NO secret. High CPC, BHW Methods to get targeted traffic, Adsense Account, PROFIT!

    Adsense: $0.5 so far. Laugh as much as you can because I know they are insanely low. Truth be told, I have not had any time for my personal projects lately. However, I'll bank from Adsense this month, and all the earnings will go in articles and links.
    Content writing, on the other hand, is for now my main income source. I have a solid list of clients and maybe more important, I am in good relations with most of them.

    I don't think that I will have time this month for the Adsense sites, as my plans are to prepare the affiliate websites for the upcoming Black Friday and for the Sales periods.
