    Hello everybody. Let's introduce myself a little bit. I am 23 years old coming from Luxembourg(yes that is a country). In school I was too lazy to do things right and familiar issues came in too. So back in 2014 I left the school and went in the army for 2 years. Back in the reality it was pretty hard to find a good job for living "good" in my country. But last year I found a pretty well payed Job where I earn between 3 and 4k per month. I like the job pretty much but what sucks are the working hours.. I am young, I want a bit more freedom. I do not want working my ass off for 40 or 45 years and after that I am to old to visit the world or to do that what I want. We all lif only once.

    My Goal

    I want to earn 4k/month so basicly that what I have now from my regular job. I hope in one year I will have achieved my goal and than I may quit my regular job to profit more from my life.

    The Plan

    The plan is a blogging website in the pet/animals niche. Basicly a blog with all kind of information about pets(dogs, cats, horses, ...) . Later I will monetize the blog with adsense and maybe integrate a small shop.

    - Goal for this month: Writing 20 HQ articles, each between 500 and 1500 words.
    - Goal for next month: Again writing 30 HQ articles, also each between 500 and 1500 words.

    After that I will buy the domain and host and starting my website and include the content I had writen the month before. Of course I will add after my website went online 1 article a week and doing all kind of SEO stuff to build a big authority site in this niche.

    I hope to see the first earning in august this year.

    What I have done so far?

    I already wrote 3 articles (~2400 words)
    So need to write 17 more till the end of this month.

    Earning and Expenses

    Earnings: 0€
    Expenses: 0€

    Each article needs to be 1000 words minimum matey, You will rarely see less on google, study done by Ahrefs into it. Just a heads up :p

    Highly recommend you buy the domain now, get it online, get an article up. Get the homepage and all the little things like terms of service, contact page, privacy policy, about us page online. Find a theme you are happy with. The sooner you get your website online and aging the better. I would also not worry about drip feeding articles 1 per week in the beginning. If you have a bunch of articles, get them online, at least 1 per day if you really want to drip feed. Then later when you have less energy and time you can go to 1 per week.

    Hmm. I was going to say this is a stupid comment, and for sure there are lots of exceptions, but I just searched for "Best Dog Harness" and all of the top 10 results were all over 1,000 words (mostly 1,500+ words) even on authority websites. For my location results anyways. Time to up my standards.

    Yeah, 1500 words is the average to hit. Stressful for us as it means more content :suspicious:

    I always look at ahrefs case studies as they have a MASSIVE database. So produce the most accurate case studies.

    Good luck mate! We are on the same boat. I have a blog on a very big niche too. Let me tell you, it will be hard af! First of all because of the competition on these kind of niches.
    Don't try to write for anything that pops up to your mind. Do some keyword research and try to find some long tail keywords with low searches per month.
    500-1500 words it's just not enough. I'd say, the least amount of words on an article should be 1500 words, if you go for less, combined with your 0 Domain Authority, it will be almost impossible to rank.
    I'd suggest you to narrow your niche a bit. Instead of writing for every possible pet on the planet, go for a specific one, dogs for example. With such a broad niche, you're probably trying to be the next wikipedia of pets but that's just unachievable.

    I am still hoping him to have a goodluck. Just for an example. The CNN news site is now shutting down after June google update. I feel bad for them. Just imagine last month they are making money but this June it literally become zero.
