ok, I'v decided to start a journey here. I have a serious problem with my mind. It has become a bit of a loose cannon! I tend to throw everything away on stupid stuff all the time, problem is I can't stop. You could call it extremely impulsive non controllable behavior. So I hope that creating a thread here will give me the discipline to keep focused. I have a stable income at the moment from temporary job, but that will only last for a few months. Main Objectives: New blog to reach 10,000 page views a day $7K in savings Increase in knowledge I know this could turn into a failure, but for me it's all a good learning curve. The idea is not to invest too much and keep saving on the side. I have studied and dabbled in SEO & web dev & design many years ago but things have changed, much forgotten and I need to refresh myself in some areas. Current Balance: $70 Blog 1 - Main keyword has 80,000 monthly searches - google cpc is very low ( I know not ideal ) - I hope to explore cpa options Savings - currently $0 as I have $70 but that will be gone in the next few days on food/fuel/rent - Current monthly income of $1400 - Current monthly expenditure of $1400 ( This will need to change!) Skills - I want to improve & become proficient in the following - php - mysql - css3/html5 - adsense - SEO - Content writing ( My English is not perfect ) - TEFL ( If I move abroad one day I wish to have a backup survival plan! ) - Building good contacts - BH techniques - WH techniques I have not set a time limit, that would be too much pressure for me. Any encouragement to help me keep focused is welcome. Any jokers, please find another thread to make jokes.
