    This is my new journal, I'm hoping to raise $10,000 by late next year for my Uni funds :).

    METHODS I'LL BE USING:

    Flipping sites,

    Niche websites with CPA/Adsense,

    Webdesign & Coding,

    Making websites for local services and ranking them E.G. Restaurants in (placename). I'll either sell these websites on to local people or sell advertising space.

    EDIT: Also selling Fiverr SEO services and My own SEO services


    MONEY MADE: (I'll update this whenever I get funds in)

    $100

    I'm just using that as a goal, I have no idea how much I can realistically make so I set my goals low. Plus I'm going to be spending money on random crap this year (Clubbing, clothes, computer stuff e.t.c)

    Ah sorry I already code and design, thanks for the offer though! (Unless you're needing my services?) :)

    It's for University, because I'm going to Uni next year I have to pay 9k a year (Uk pounds) not including maintenance. I hope to pay my way through Uni :)

    I will think about it haha, I'm pretty lazy though :eek:

    Which site are you using to get the webdesign and coding jobs?

    And what are your daily expenses?

    I've got a lot of good contacts in the webdesign/coding world so people always recommend me :).

    Daily expenses are minimal (Still living at home while I'm completing my A-Levels)

    Good luck bro.

    I'm in the same boat as you, nearly 18, going uni next year and currently doing A-Levels. Make sure you allocate enough time to your studying aswell as IM.

    Thanks for all the support :).

    Money so far: $664 - From the coding job, the design job and some fiverr revenue that I can finally withdraw

    So far today I have:

    1) Done some SEO on my 'watch online' site and put some ads on it.

    2) Finished a large chunk of the coding job

    3) Got a lot of Fiverr gigs so I've set multiple instances of scrapebox on

    4) Bought the EMD domain 'Restaurants in (placename)' and I hope to rank this soon to sell on or to advertise local businesses

    Still waiting on my article writer, but seeing as he's doing 4 articles for $6.50 I'm not complaining.

    Now I'm off to the gym and to meet some mates at the pub :D

    Wow what a busy few days. Fiverr gigs have been pouring in for backlinks, same with design and coding jobs. I may give up my Fiverr account to someone who needs some money doing scrapebox blasts, 100% feedback and 500+ orders done because I can make way more money with the design/coding jobs :).

    I made my first $2 yesterday from my new Micro Niche Adsense site, it's now at ~12th position in Google. Doing some SEO today on it, I want it to be #1 in a week or two (It's a very easy to rank keyword with ~3000+ local views a month)
