    I have been working on my money site incessantly. I am literally addicted to making it better.

    I love my site. It's nice on page 2-3. I published a kindle book, and I have a local SEO company working on it. Worth the investment I believe.

    I am addicted. I'm impatient. I am excited! I have so many ideas for this site, its crazy. I found my calling it seems. I have been working on this site since November.

    I have a feeling that I when I decide to sell it, will have a FANTASTIC payday from this. Just need to exercise patience.

    Anyone else have this?

    I was simply starting a conversation considering I'm new to this whole IM stuff. I feel like I isolate myself from others doing IM.

    It's totally addicting to wake up in the AM, check my serpbook, then check my adsense, then check my facebook, then email.

    It's exciting to watch everything grow & develop more.

    Wonder if there is a IM ADDICTION group. Kinda like AA :)

    It feels awesome to feel driven about a project. Especially in a competitive market.

    Sometimes I listen to winners, and winners love what they do, and they sound just like you.

    One bit of advice, though. Listen to your visitors. Don't love your site and yourself so much that you can't bear to do something different. What you think is "better" may not make you more money. You have to strike some kind of balance or you will be on page 2 or 3 (both literally and metaphorically) for the rest of your life.

    Be a REAL winner. Love what you do, and do it from the #1 position of G page 1.

    Hey thats sound advice and I have definitely been taking the time to listen to my readers. I write about stuff they requested, I help them with things they might be able to use. I just don't like to enable them or partake in doing every little thing for them.

    Respectful & Firm.

    My problem's that I'm addicted to nice cars, boats, houses etc

    and sitting infront of these 3 screens is just a means to an end.

    (A much better means to a much better end than anything else I've ever done tho!)

    It's like.. A sense of major accomplishment, and pride. I am thinking and I am knowing that I am building an investment in my future.

    So many thoughts roll through my head thinking about how I am able to say that if I was in dire straights, I have just created a passive income

    Well, this is why most of us are doing stuff like this - more or less.
    Working is a essential part, to achieve what you stated.

    Thought I work, to be one day "truly" free, living where I want, when I want & sleeping how long I can ;)

    If you still feel this way in two months time, you will be greatly successful.

    I feel this too for many of my sites. I have a different approach to each campaign that I am running and have written a pretty complex schedule to handle all the daily, weekly, monthly tasks that I need to accomplish for each one.

    Recently, I have gotten extremely excited about a particular niche authority site that I created back in early December last year. It is an Amazon affiliate site with just 11 pages of content to drive targeted traffic to the site. In addition to this, are the 38 affiliate product review posts that I have on here. Since the niche is somewhat seasonal, it is now starting to roller coaster out of control. I have seen some interesting impressions for search terms that I was not originally targeting and I am now in the process of creating new content that is specifically targeted towards those new keywords.

    Several of the pages on the site are on Google pg 1 search results and climbing every day. They often outrank both Amazon as well as the manufacturer's page for those particular products! This has actually leveraged a position with many of these manufacturers allowing me to add reciprocal links. I am now becoming a true authority in this niche and my original content (all reviews are around 550-600 word articles written by me) is getting linked to from my visitors.

    When I created this website, I had actually put some thin content on there just to have something and pretty much placed this on the back burner as I had too many other projects that I was focused on. Now that those other campaigns are working on autopilot (minus the backlinking strategies), it has given me a chance to go through all of my site pages and SEO optimize them.

    I am extremely proud of what I have created with this one particular site and I plan to undergo a major theme update in the future with some fancy graphics and a polished look to it. While my IM income is spread out over several dozen different campaigns (Adsense MNS, CB and other CPA offers, Amazon, eBay, etc), I am getting the feeling that this one particular site is going to surpass the combined income from all those other projects!

    I have not had a full-time job since October last year and have turned this into my career after having done IM on the side for several years now. I am already in the works on several other Amazon affiliate projects now and should start seeing earnings in the realm of $2500/mo. from my biggest site.

    Keep at it every day, make a plan and stick to it. For those of you reading this that have yet to experience the excitement that a single campaign can bring or have yet to start a website and earn that first Adsense buck, get out there and take action!

    Remember, "you'll never know where you stand in life if you keep sitting!"

    Keep at it, you sound like you're on the right track to success. I'm focused on being the Authority as well, hopefully we're not in the same market lol.

    The last thing you want is to get into "the loop of checking things". Keep this in mind and you'll be successful. ;)

    Thanks! I am diligently going to keep at this, then keep reinvesting my earnings & profits. Finally all that reading has made an impression!

    I can only hope for others to have my excitement rub off on them.
