    I am trying something out and I want some peoples thoughts and opinions. My ultimate plan is to sell affiliate products relating to comic book gear or toys. I am in the process of gaining pinterest followers and facebook likes on a related page. I have a blogger (to save cash) in which I post a lot of comic book art, I love comic book art which I hope will keep me interested in this journey.

    My blog is a pinterest clone which I am trying to add 15 to 20 new posts to each day, these posts will be shared on pinterest and facebook, maybe even a tumblr account at some point. So every 5 to 10 posts I make a post about some cool tee shirt, print for sale, or comic book which I recommend the user clicks on the post and is redirected to a sales page. I may also post these directly to facebook and pinterest. I get all my content from reddit pinterest and deviantart while getting products from shareasale affiliate networks and amazon.

    I want to know what people think of this, I was thinking that my posts on pinterest would simply be passed over and not clicked on, unless someone sees a pin of mine and is looking for similar art styles.

    I plan to keep making daily posts and see if I can make money using adsense or mylikes. If the affiliate marketing does not work out I hope to get enough views a day to earn something with adsense. As well I hope to make albums on mylikes like "10 cosplayers out of costume" then share that to my pinterest.

    I guess since this is a journey I should say I have
    53 posts
    1 approved affiliate site
    2 pinterest followers

    I do have a plan to make a bot using Java and Selenium to take a post from my blog, post it to a pinterest board and to my facebook page. I hope this will allow me to get content manually as I actually like viewing the art, while not having to handle my own social media
