    Hey Guys,

    So I've been involved in online marketing for 4 years now. I've had time to dive into pretty much everything from SEO, paid traffic to CPA and try a little bit of everything.

    I recently decided to start a new authority blog, the idea around the blog is to post everything with brutal honesty and "no shame" if you will, not really caring about what kind of content I post about or what others might think about my opinion on various topics. Most people don't do this in IM (no one that I know anyway)

    The niche is marketing and lifestyle topics, so some posts might be useful articles about a marketing product or topic and others might be posts where I talk about dating or buying a home etc.

    I have had a lot of success and failure with my IM journey so I've got plenty to write about and lots of experience to back it up.

    My goal is to write 3x a week, every post will be unique in it's own way and either consistent of entertainment, reviews, opinion pieces, information articles and "how to" type content.

    The goal for income is to be making $2500/month. :cool:

    I will post here as I make progress with my IM journey and new blog.

    I have not been a super active posted on BHW so I cannot post a direct link yet. I plan on donating soon so I can help contribute to the community with this follow along journey.

    For now you can find me by searching "No Shame Income".

    interesting perspective, especially like the IM while slacking at work, however the more I research the better I get at work and they want me to do more stuff. c'est la vie. Oh and thats funny about P90, i tried that and only last about 3 days, that is tough! Thank you torrents for keeping me from wasting the money but good that you got results. Get really good at making posts like the IM while slacking you could post that up on facebook and might have it get shared, that'd be something I would look at if it showed up in my stream

    P90X is a great program but yes it's really hard. Glad you liked that article, that is the type of content I'm going to continue posting.

    I have p90x3. I'm pretty sure I thought my heart was going to stop the first day I did it and I'm not even overweight or inactive.

    I couldn't get into x3 for some reason, I just feel as though they made a lot of the moves really complicated. I suppose in a lot of ways they needed some new variety but I've always preferred the original.

    In regards to the blog I have an article going live today and plan to finish writing an epic post this week comparing a few different course platforms.

    You can always blog about the walk of shame, fake some celeb news about it, and post funny pics of down trodding girls walking in a metro area. If your articles are juicy enough people will love it.

    Quick update - Finished up an epic post going into crazy detail about 4 different online course platforms. It will be going live tomorrow. I also updated my blog theme which screwed up my blog titles and made them all upper case so I'm going to try to figure that out next.

    I've also completed my June income report from existing projects and that will be live on Friday.

    Came up with my total net income for June - up to $667.88 after expenses this past month for internet earnings.

    I also spent yesterday working on cold calling local businesses and found 4 really hot leads looking for SEO and web design potentially. Will update on that as I make progress.

    Hey Aehs01... not sure how broad your blog is going to be, but if you're thinking "lifestyle" will cover topics from all different categories, you may want to take a look at this podcast. Listened to it the other day and it shed some light on the people who run successful, general blogs about everything and anything.

    If you're taking a more targeted approach it may not be of any help, just thought I'd share. :)

    Jared

    Hey Jared, I have actually interviewed Corbett Barr but don't actively listen to his show. I wanted to focus mostly on marketing but also share content that is useful from my own experiences.

    An example might be how I bought my first home and had to learn everything as I went, it wasn't like there was some simple book telling me about all the things I'd need in my home so I want to blog about stuff like that. I also might do some minor dating content but not as a main focus, the idea is to be entertaining, captivating and to teach people from my own experience.

    So no new blog post yet this week, I've been hard at work on a new course basically showing people how to start an SEO agency from scratch. The content is done but I still need to finish the landing page and then start working on promotion.

    My goal this week is to complete that and upload some of my existing courses to Skillshare.
