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 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 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.
