    Hey everyone. I have had a blog for about 2 years and have updated it alot over the last couple of months. I have been studying the knowledge in here for us "noobs" and I have noticed a good increase in traffic and my clicks went up.

    This forum is my new bible.

    I tweaked my adsense locations. Created two niche blogs on health and twitter.

    Followed all advice on how to use twitter and related sites like twitturl for example.

    When I can I will get some wordpress themes, I just don't have the extra cash ... "
    yet"

    One blog type site that brought my traffic up was today dot com....it seems to work.

    That's all I have got done so far, babysteps...I want to make sure I make you all proud and don't get banned :)

    As soon as I hit the 100 dollar a day mark I'll let you all know.

    From myself, my wife and children and our doggie:

    Thanks for all of the support and advice.

    You guys ROCK

    re : great job, wish u could also tell us how much u earn presently, and ur traffic details...

    I have made almost 120 from adsense, but thats 8 different blogs. My traffic goes between 150 and 500 uniques a day. I noticed the traffic go up after twitturls and doing a very cheesy test video on youtube

    I also tried infolinks but not much money there, I think I need to change the info in infolinks to something other than home.

    Next I am going to make my main blog have only one or two topics, right now it has no real structure, I just post off of topics from google hot trends or google blog search.

    And thanks to everyone about the wordpress themes.

    I'll keep everyone posted.

    Now I have to go watch a movie with the fam.

    Take care

    I'll post tomorrow.

    woops, just to clarify sorry I made 12 dollars, not 120 dollars, Don't want to sound over the top but the way its going I am doing well.

    I put the blogger traffic script in my blog I learned here and that helped also.

    Congrats Garrett! The first dollar is the hardest to make and is a great psychological milestone!
    Are you also submitting other web 2.0 sites and using RSS feeds? If not these will increase your traffic (and possibly earnings). You can also find a large list of these sites here as well.
    I look forward to hearing more of your successes so keep them coming!
