Hello BHW community, I'm writing my second journey on this forum to beat my laziness again, and start building my future for me and my girlfriend as we're living together and my main job is not enough.

1602685292383.png

I will be focusing on what i should focus about 2 years ago AKA keep my lazy ass around my laptop and be productive about my interests. In the last 5 years, a good 80% of my incoming came from online works.

I worked on my own by advertising my website on Facebook, Instagram, and through flyers in my city to build cheap websites, adding products, manage website and so on. I also did the same thing in the online world using Fiverr and people per hour introducing new services as SEO improvements, keyword research, website speeding boost, SEO/KW/Speed reports, and so on.

I lurked on this forum enough to learn new things, everything learned became a service I had to offer.. a win/win situation as i was earning a learning new things.


Why am I here, after I failed my first journey?
Because everyone fails, that's (also) how you learn. The only way to make ZERO mistake is by standing still in a coffin.
Because i had tons of inspiration from @Mechy and @Shaunm, giving us tons of valuable information
Because other people are making it, so why my lazy ass can't?
Because I want to make this idea a winning one
To proof myself
To prove everyone and each of you.

What I've done so far:
Domain name and hosting.
2 informative article, 1 commercial article. About 2000 words each.
20 low competitive kw.
reading tons of stuff mainly about kw research and whitehat SEO to gather as much organic click as possible.

What are my goals (so far)
Install a blog theme.
Upload 10 articles.
Earn my first $.
Update this thread to keep track of my efforts.


As you can see, I'm starting from zero and I will give as many details as possible of my journey and hopefully, motivate someone to join the boat!giphy-min.gif

UPDATE

A week as passed and my main work keeps me busy, but I had spare time on my hands, enough to keep my journey up, running, and updated.


What I did:
4 article (2 informational - 2 money )
• article 1 - 780 words
• article 2 - 1045 words
• article 3 - 1644 words
• article 4 - 1530 words

Other stuff:
• played with different themes, and I've still not made my final choice. I'm using the free version of newsmag till I decide which one to use
•Applyed to the amazon affiliate program and other affiliate programs related to my niche.
•Found 2 longtail kw with low difficulties, low results on google, and high search volume, about 1400 (yes, that's already high for my project)
•Discovered an easy competitor to rank. Poor website optimization, poor formatting. Let's see if I will surpass this one!


That's about it, I'm just trying to focus and build my website day by day.

UPDATE
+2 weeks from my starting, and I feel like my progress is not good enough. Even if I'm challenging myself, I feel like I have plenty of time on my hands, but I'm not using it as I should. Below it's my progress right now.

What I did:
• 1 informative article - 708 words
• 1 informative article - 788 words
• 1 money article, 1200 words
• Added 5 low-competition keywords with KGR to my list

Other stuff:
I found a theme nice theme that fit my niche. I'm playing with it as my website is still on google's sandbox, hopefully I will find what I need. I'm studying my competitor, looking for their outdated keyword, and looking for new on. I've applied to the google search console, and I will update you as soon as I have results.

Future goals(?)
•Make my website indexed
•Making my first dollar out of it
•Keeping me in the game

It's a win/win situation. If I have the results of my works, I definitely win my first dollar challenge. If I lose, I will definitely learn a lesson and hopefully, make some experience
