    Hi everybody.

    First - the story :p

    I am in IM for about 5-7 years (with some breaks).
    I used to do some good money, first in "Get Paid" than in some domain parking programs (I got banned for bringing traffic a little bit BH but I didn't know that :p ). After that there was phase with Adsens ... and there was a gap. All my IM income came almost to 0 :/

    So now, as I got really SICK! of my 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. job, I decided to go into IM full time.

    I've been reading BHW for some time and now decided to register.

    What is this Thread about? I need something to keep me going :)

    So...

    Goal:
    1. Income: $3000 / month
    2. If no.1 is achieved - resign my "day job" as an engineer (it's fullfiling but my boss is a di*k and I don't have many possibilities to change job in my field and in my city ... whatever).
    3. If no.2 is achieved - go full time into IM and generate income from no.1 x10, x100, ... :)

    Means:
    I have chosen few methods shared by Blackhatters and hope at least some of them will click :)

    Methods (for starters; and with some my modifications :) ):
    (too bad I can't post URLs yet)
    - Craigslist posting and CPA/Adsens monetizing
    - "Made for Adsens" pages and WH SEO
    - Strict BH with some crazy coding (by myself) and software (nothing too big - scrapebox, etc.)

    Moreover, I start a offline project with my friends (mostly offline :p ).
    We've created a blog which is basicly a list of 149 things that we want to do before death :p and of course share all with everyone what we did and how we did it). Hopefully we will find sponsors for bigger and more expensive Things as we gain more UU on the blog - 149Things.

    So now I get down to work and hope it works...

    If You have any tips or comments for me - please, do not hasitate to write :)

    And "Create Your Own Luck" ;)

    Hell yea! Go for it my man! I quit work last November and have been globetrotting ever since, it's your burning desire of success and setting your goals that will get you through.

    Please keep us updated. I am REALLY REALLY trying to quit my job right now but so far I haven't had too much success for a stable $100 per day. I would LOVE to see another member do what I'm trying to do now.

    Good luck and more power to you!

    I must wish you luck my friend. It's always nice to quite those jobs when you have an annoying boss.

    Go for CPA Offers + Whitehat SEO or Blackhat SEO.

    Also try utilizing google trends + content lockers, you can read up on that.

    What kind of engineer are you?

    Well, good luck to you. Create a plan and stick to it, make the most out of it. Are you going to be doing IM in your own country? I have no idea how seo works in Poland, I mean google works the same, but I dunno if people there don't use different search phrases and other cultural stuff like that. Meh, people are people, they're always gonna buy stuff, lol.

    Keep us updated about how it's going.

    Also, your blog could use some work. It's really hard to get around and you could write it using slightly better English. Oh and I think it would be better if your WP was in English instead of Polish ("brak komentarzy" etc.). That could open it up for more people and it will make you look more professional.

    Hey OP,

    Wonderful idea. I really hope that I could also do that so that I could fund my own life without having to kowtow to some piece of cr*p boss. Good luck!!

    Good luck with your venture. Whilst you await your sites and money to roll in, trying bidding on work you can complete freelance to generate some income.

    In which country do you live?
    3k$ seems not that much to be to have a stable life.

    That's the dream :) I would loved to be able to travel as much as possible - I hope in one year I will do for some great, long trip.

    At the moment I am trying to get into some CPA Networks - reading on BHW about them, choosing and applying :)

    And about engineering - I am Control Engineer (Electric field).

    I am doing most of my work on USA traffic - it's better paid.

    About the blog - I do not write it. I am just one of the people envolved in doing tasks :) With a little more free time I'll start some SEO on it - that will be my part :)

    I'm from Poland (city around 300k population) and $3k per month is more than enough to have a good living. At the moment, from my "day job" I have income around $1,5-2k per month (depends on extra work involved). And I consider my life as preety good one :)

    I'll keep You informed on my progress guys :) Thanks for the good words. Cheers :)
