    New member, somewhat of a long time occasional lurker here. After reading a few people's journey to making money, I realized that I have the same goal as most of you here, and that is to make steady money, not riches, but just enough to live comfortably and to be able to get the simple things we want.

    I am starting from ground zero..... absolutely no knowledge in marketing, programming, or social networking. I know the tables are already stacked against me but I have decided to keep moving forward towards my end-goal no matter what.

    I've made up my mind and I'm not going to purchase any bots, I'm going to be writing my own, I know this is going to be difficult and its going to take a long time as I have zero programming experience, but I believe it is doable. In the mean time I'm going to be using a free instagram bot written in python, not just for automating the whole instagram process but to study it and learn from it. I hope to code my own bots so that I can customize them how I want and not depend on other people. We all know the saying "If you want something done right you do it yourself". Anyways, I'm setting a short term deadline and that is to earn $5 a day within a month, and a long term deadline of 9 months by which I have to be making at least $100 a day by then and be able to code my own bots, and hopefully share them with the community here.

    I will be updating the thread maybe every 3 days.

    You could use some cracked bot and save yourself the hassle !

    I probably could but then what would I learn from it?

    Still trying to figure out how to go about creating a bot in python without using the Instagram API...

    You will thank yourself, it is always good to be able to code exactly what you want.
    Python webdriver + Selenium, with a taste of "xpath", and you can do it relatively easily.

    Well, I haven't updated the thread because I hit a few roadblocks right away.
    1. I didn't have a dedicated device for Instagram(I like keeping my online life separate from my offline life)
    2. I realized I was way over my head when I said I was going to learn python and how to monetize IM.
    3. Laziness/lack of motivation
    4. I didn't have any discipline

    After I realized how much work I was going to have to put in to learn just Python, let alone about Pycharm and Selenium, it really hit me to put it simple. Also, not having a dedicated device to upload Instagram content also didn't help to motivate me, but I think the main things that stopped me from making any moves was being a master procrastinator and not having any discipline. That has changed tonight, as I realized that this isn't just a journey about learning Python or making money, its not that easy, but also about conquering my mind, changing my mindset, and obtaining the discipline I need to be able to study about python and monetizing.

    I am going to upload 10 pictures to Instagram tonight, after getting done reading about Pycharm, and will leave the Instagram bot running all night.

    Mate, Thanks for sharing your money making journey. Already read your whole journey description and update and can see that you have lack of motion. For earning money you no need to learn first about marketing, programming, or social networking etc but all of these are important skills. I can see your update have no change.
    These is first and last figure!

    Why mate? Your methods don't working!
    If you need any help then lease let me know. I'll help you much.

    When you want to learn while earning better try UniBot bot creator by Miki Soft. With it you can make very fast http bots, can use mobile user agent, can make exe bots, have proxy and multithread support and all this is free and all you need to know is regex, which can be learned perfectly in under week. There have video tutorial how to make twitter bot for 10 minutes.

    In case you have sponsors for the next few months, go learn python :).

    Don't give up on learning how to program. Even if you don't succeed in your first venture (most won't) you'll have a skill that can make you money for life.

    Well, I got lazy and didn't continue with the journey, but I had to motivate myself once again to get back on track and I've been working on getting a good Instagram account growing in the motivational niche for the past 3 days. I got the logo done for it, which came out pretty bad ass.

    I'm a little stuck at the moment as I don't know if I should get content from other accounts and post them on mine, would Instagram ban me if the owner of the content reports me?

    So far the plan is to create the other 2 accounts without proxies because the accounts will be created using a real wifi connection and verified with a real working phone number

    Things to get done:
    Upload content on 1st account
    Purchase MassPlanner.
    Create and decide what niche the 2nd and 3rd account will be in
    Get new logos done for them

    I've gotten lazy on multiple journeys. Sometimes it's not about how much you post, try to keep a lot of things private because other people have a way of demotivating you.

    I decided what niche the 2nd account is going to be in... in the Marijuana niche. lol. It might seem stupid to some of you but its something I am passionate about. I am looking into purchasing either MassPlanner of FollowLiker as I want to keep all 3 of these for the long run, and I wasn't sure that the free python bot I was going to use would somehow 'cause any trouble down the road. I will grow them slowly and very careful.

    I have a question for anyone reading this, is it a good idea to upload content to the 2nd account from the same device I am going to use for the 1st account? For some reason I think this will be a problem but can someone with more experience with Instagram confirm this?
