    First off, I just wanted to say thanks for openly sharing all of the great info that can be found here at BHW. I have read through many posts and tutorials, and there is no shortage of topics that can help someone along their way of marketing on the internet. It has been a true inspiriation to me, so thanks again.

    I have "dabbled" in internet marketing off and on for a few years. But, I have had very little luck in getting results with most of my endeavors. Originally, I heard of "scrapers" and "bots" and I was thinking this was gonna be a piece of cake. Well, my eyes have seen the light, and there isn't any substitute for hard work when it pertains to building a presence online. I haven't messed with it much for the past year or so, but now that I am putting some time in again I am spending more of it learning the basics, and a little less time chasing the "holy grail" of systems or software. I have taken a good look at myself and what I would like to accomplish, and at the end of the day it really boils down to finding things that makes me feel like I am moving forward, but not expecting to build a empire overnight. What appeals to me most is "niche" marketing, so that is what I will be working on until I have a good understanding of it, and I am able to get solid results on a consistent basis. As time goes on I will learn what software should be implimented to make what I am doing more automated. But, there's the trick....... you don't know what you should automate until you find yourself spending too much time doing something that CAN be automated. So, for now, it is plain and simple. My main focus is to find niches that meet my criteria, and then try to rank high in those niches. I am a research junky, but I seem to have a short attention span when it comes to repetative task. So, I can't really think of ANY topic that I would enjoy writing about....forever. I can write 5-10 articles on just about anything though, so I should be able to atleast "test" markets and see if they are worth outsourcing some of the work to build the sites content and what not. Yeah, it's a pretty loose plan, but at least I am not searching for magic software or systems anymore. I am glad to be here among so many great folks that are willing to share their knowledge to help others get started in such a wide open industry. Happy trails guys :)

    Welcome Jester573!

    That was one of the best introductions I have read in awhile and it seems to me you have a decent plan. One thing
    I would like to highlight though.

    Honestly 5-10 articles is not enough content to rank and test a market. If you can't write more than that I would
    suggest that you start 3 niche websites at one time and alternate between projects so you don't get burnt out on
    a single website. Additional you can hire good content writers in the marketplace later on.

    Learn and earn my friend!

    Thanks for the tip, rabbitking. That would work out great too, cause if I started 3 at once I can track my progress on them, and then feed more content to the one that's doing the best in efforts to make it a more authorative site. For now, I am just gonna make a good list of long tail keywords that I think I would have a chance to rank with, but also have enough interest to generate some traffic. Then I will wittle that down to 3, and we're off to the races! :)
