Having been inspired by Blooops journey thread I thought it'd be fun (and hopefully also inspiring) to start one of my own. Plus having made a slow start to the year I need the accountability! I was going to start a site from scratch, but I think it would be more interesting to watch the progress of a mostly new site that is already out of the sandbox and making a few sales. So here's what I've got so far - the site was started in October 2019: Type of website: Niche wordpress blog (based on one specific type of product) Affiliate program: Amazon Associates + one or two other independent affiliate programs I haven't yet tested. Commission: 4.5% Niche: Fitness (I won't be giving any more details than that) Product price: $100-$400 approx Total spent so far: $10 for domain (I already own hosting & wrote the content myself) Number of articles currently on site: 10 Number of backlinks: 0 And that's pretty much all I've done so far. I just set up the blog, did some keyword research, added 10 articles, and let it sit. The product in question is one that is popular during the holiday season so I've made some sales already: October sales: $0 November sales: $19.08 December sales $264.44 January so far: $133.89 (but slowing down) As this is a fairly narrow niche, I don't envisage the site having more than about 50 posts (I've already got 30 keywords researched, and after that I'll decide if more is needed). The aim is $1000+ p/m and to eventually sell the site when it has a good enough earnings history. I'll be updating on a regular basis with what I'm doing, income screenshots etc. and of course I'll be happy to answer any questions.
