    I always wanted to make one of these journal things. I felt like I needed something to motivate me to do one. Well what's better then getting out of debt? Sure some may scoff at what I owe, (cue college loans) My debt has an outstanding balance of $1,030.16, with an available credit of $150.00

    Why am I in debt? Poor decisions, overdraft fees from the bank, mom borrowing money, and poor decisions.

    What am I going to do to get out of it? Do fiverr gigs with scrapebox, adsense sites, whatever it is I will try because I don't like being under. I really only know about adsense and I do have scrapebox and reading macbarens thread from going noob to guru has really motivated me to try and I actually got a gig. 1k backlinks for $5. Im surprised someone went for that when people are doing it for 10k backlinks.

    I do have a plan set out that will hopefully work out and I correct my debt. Hoping for a big adsense check next month, also selling my adsense method to someone, selling my rank #5 site with 450,000 global searches a month. I just invested $150 with my friend, he made over $300k last year with his method and he blew it all. He moved back in to my house when he had no where else to go and now he promises to never go down to the strip and rent a presidential suite (We live in Las Vegas). I did give him $15 for a crappy server for his method and in return gave me $300 2 weeks later. With that in mind the $150 would get me $2500 from him. I also do some freelance work, $5 for each post on a site and $10/hour managing a twitter account. I was told not to make him go broke.

    This journal could last a month to 2 months but maybe a little longer. I'll get through this mess and might learn a thing or two along the way.

    Alrighty first update. This is where I stand financially...

    Outstanding Balance of $1,050.15 and Available Credit of $133.00

    Thankfully I had a good month with adsense. Little over $1k, I am happy about that, I sadly won't see that til the end of the month. I did 2 posts for my freelancing work for a total of $10 and I am currently finding some autoblogs to post to for my fiverr gig. This weekend I will be at my girlfriends house. I won't have access for a computer for as long as I like. That family uses that poor laptop to just play farmville. Yea it's sad. Anyway I will ask my girlfriend if she can help out and write some stuff for me. She loves to write.

    Total Debt: $1,050.15

    Total Revenue: $10

    After a couple days at my girlfriends house I had things that went out and some unexpected items took money from me. I took out a $100 loan with my bank and had to pay $3 to cover my credit card bill that is now sitting at the limit of $1200.

    I am really stressing now but I plan on staying strong. For some reason good things do come to me when I am patient.

    My adsense payment will be $799 I am happy about that. I am hoping to sell my site for $500 to my friend.

    I am also going to do some fiverr gigs. Wish me luck

    Are people buying your 1k backlinks on fiverr? I'm currently doing 5k and have gotten quite a few but if you're getting orders with 1k.....hmmm. :D

    edit: made a 2nd fiverr account and am testing this. Will see in a couple days what happens lol.

    Have $35k in student loans and then start talking about debt. $1k? you could pay that off in a month working a minimum wage job in the US.
