    Hello everyone, this is my very first journal on any forum. I would like to share my journey with you all.

    Introduction: How It All Started?


    It is quite funny how I started this journey back in college. I literally had $124 in my bank account and I was in college trying to hit on girls all day. I had no interest in school back then and all I wanted to do was play video games.

    After failing to get any numbers and feeling dejected, I sat down at home and decided to make a video game site after reading millionaire Alex Becker?s blog, source-wave.com. He was talking about how to rank easily for certain searches on Google. I was intrigued and decided to take action and build a few niche sites.

    Prior to reading source-wave, I had struggled with making successful niche sites as I had looked at Pat Flynn?s blog. It was tough to find profitable keywords until I came across source-wave. This is why I recommend also checking out his blog. I actually got to meet him in person as he was the one that helped me create my own online money making machine. I am forever grateful to him.

    With the knowledge I gained from all of the above, I was able to generate up to $3,500 per month at peak, but have since floated around 2400/month in recent months.

    That is one of the earnings I got from adsense. I am now going to try and get to the lofty $10,000/month goal in 119 days.

    My plan of attack includes the following:

    1) Email Marketing - Building a semi relationship building email list to generate $3000/month(currently 0)
    2) Video Game App Development - Getting my app to generate $500/month(currently at $124/month)
    3) Video Game Master Sites - Getting them to produce consistent $3000/month instead of the current $2000/month
    4) Building my Blog - Getting content out and providing recommendations and solutions for fellow bloggers(currently at 169 subs)
    5) YouTube Channel - Getting it to $500/month(currently at $8/month :rolleyes:)
    6) Local SEO - Generate clients and get a $3000/month base going(currently at $97/month)

    All these will be executed in 119 days starting now!

    I will be updating every week.

    I'm currently in the same position, which is to scale and diversify my income.

    Good luck with your journey and I'll be following this thread.

    1 Question, how do you plan to grow your email list?

    Good luck, but stay away from source..., it's dying anyway.

    What was important in your journey is the fact to take action as this is no 1 to start.

    I took action and started back in 2006: find a click bank top seller, write an ezine review article and earn money...

    Cheers

    Could you please share your experience how to make safe backlinks which are pointing to your Adsense pages? Because manual link building is not ok with Google Guidelines. I have difficulties with promotion lately as I don't want to lose my rankings but I don't have high rankings because of fear that it will harm my traffic in the end or Adsense will remove me again after re-activation. : )

    A mix of facebook ads, solo ads, free traffic from my video game sites and forum marketing.
