    Hello everyone,

    You may recognize my name from my previous journey ($10/day with Tumblr & Pinterest) which was a complete success and I thank everyone who supported me and helped me out.

    Here a short story about why I decided on this journey:

    Currently it is 1:26AM and I was thinking about how I would be able to help my mom out. I found out over the holidays that she postponed her dream of opening her own hair salon because of me (I'm am currently in college and she doesn't want to risk my education because, she knows that only 30% of her costumers will leave with her). She will now continue to work for my uncles (family friend) at his salon,which she hates because, my uncle caused a lot of drama in the salon and has also created friction between her and a few other family members that work there. My mom already loses 50% of her earnings/day to my uncle, which I don't mind as much because it is HIS business. What does bother me is that he expects my mom to stay and baby sit his 23y/o son who has been trying to learn how to be a hair dresser who over a year and has learned nothing, and stay working for him when he is the owner (my mom generates the most income for this salon out of all the workers and my uncle knows that).

    This fucking pisses me off and I want my mom to leave that place as soon as possible and start her business.

    I've calculated my current expenses and with $80/day, I will be take care of my self financially and still have some spending money / save.

    My Plan
    I was wanting to try doing PPD or CPA offers because, I've read about all those successful journeys here of people making $$$$ with it. Then I remember this, "Stay to one method". So I decided to stay with what worked for me; Pinterest and Adsense, but I will be adding/testing twists to my original method to help increase my earnings.
    1. Typical keyword research and niche finding (high cpc)
    2. Check if it's somewhat popular on Pinterest
    3. Build a website
    4. Create Pinterest boards and repin 500~/day/account (change the clickthru to my landing page)
    As the journey progresses I want to be able to learn how to rank sites on Google and not rely solely on Social Traffic.
    What I Have
    • PinBlaster
    • PinPal
    • TumblRipper (donator version)
    • 20 Private Proxies
    • GSA
    • WordAi
    • VPS

    Earnings so far from Adsense
    January 1, 2014 $29.96
    January 2, 2014 $22.68
    January 3, 2014 $20.03
    January 4, 2014 $24.11
    January 5, 2014 $22.86
    January 6, 2014 $13.64
    January 7, 2014 $16.19
    January 8, 2014 $16.16
    Total: $166.29
    Sorry for the rant in the beginning, it just really upset me when I heard about this and I haven't been able to express myself over this situation yet.

    I will be updating daily and I will answer questions as best as I can if they are asked.

    Sincerely,

    SilverJanuary

    Good luck, hope you succeed again! One question about Pinterest: How are you repinning posts? Are you doing it manually or do you have a bot, and if the latter, which bot? Thanks.

    Thank you all for the kind words. :)

    I'm happy to hear you found a working method for you. Keep working at it and watch your earnings increase!

    Thank you tomje and I hope you learn more about using Pinterest from my thread and others here on BHW. :)

    Thanks Lakitu! I am repinning posts with PinBlaster & Pinpal. I use the two to scrap pins based on keywords and then repin to my boards.

    Today was a drop in earnings, well, the last few days were a drop in earnings. It seems that I'm having issues breaking the $20 threshold and I'm not sure exactly why that is.

    PinPal has been giving me issues recently with "you are pinning to fast" even though I have each action set to 300 - 500 seconds, but it has no issues scrapping pins.
    PinBlaster is having issues scrapping pins for me currently. I can only seem to find a few hundreds pins before it stops, but it has no issues posting pins.
    These two are doing what the other isn't LOL..

    I use PinBlaster / PinPal to create the board (or I manually create it by logging into the account if the bots aren't able to do this). Then I scrape pins related to my board based on keywords.
    Ex. I would search for GUCCI HANDBAGS if my board was for FASHION
    Finally I would have the bot repin all the pins I just scrapped to my board and have it change the click thru url while doing so.


    Thanks cyrusdavirus, Born4Money, and Beven. :)

    Hey man, I've been doing roughly the same thing as you with Pinterest. I've been making a decent amount of money with it but I'm now scared that my adsense account's gonna get banned. I saw that you have WordAI, do you use it for content creation? I was thinking of doing this so I wouldn't just have images on my blog and also have some unique high quality spun content.
