    Hello guys and gals,

    Introduction:
    Today, I'm so proud that I could create an official journey for myself to this online world.
    Here's my introduction with my current condition in this introduction thread (I'm not allowed to post the url for my status).

    About Me (If you care to know):
    A little more about me, I'm a poor guy who are living in the bad life for over 10 years, and now I'm still poor because my greatest 8-6 full-time job is $80/month. Therefore, my condition is not good but at least I could survive with this amount of money. I have no family or relatives for me to support as well as to support me, too. My biggest saving is $20/month from $80 salary. Therefore, I could save $20/month to create this journey (funny enough, I must have to eat only 2 meals per day to save this amount). Therefore, my biggest resource is $20/month budget.

    What is this journey for?
    I won't do Youtube or PPD now because my internet connection is very slow ~10Kbps, and especially, it's very expensive for to waste my bandwidth.
    With $20/month budget, I'd go for a simple niche site with additional things that I must learn a long. Everything will be processing by me. They are including Contents and SEO.

    Don't get me wrong; I'm just start up with less knowledge with this online world. I don't even know how to use PC properly, I'm an old school, but thanks to a small 10 years old boy (the child of my landlord) who teach me to use some little internet.

    I'm just learning, and some folks told me that I should learn more in order to gain more knowledge before doing anything to lose my hard earned money. Yet, I think that I should take the action while I'm learning from it. Yes, I need your recommendation and advice through out this journey.

    However, I've learned some basic stuffs that are required to process this journey such as Setting Up WordPress, Plugins, Adding Content, and Some SEO as well as monetization.

    Note: I'm not a native or English speakers so that I couldn't use it properly. It's not my first or second or third language.

    Main Point, Type of Journey (No more fluff):
    + Type of site >>> Niche Site (not micro or authority).
    + Monetization >>> Adsense, ClickBank, Amazon, CJ, SAS or CPA.
    + Promotion >>> SEO, Social and every other ways that I could promote my niche site.

    Today Action:
    1- Planning
    2- Writing this journey
    3- Researching the niche topic


    OK! That's all I got for today. This is a journey from $0 to $5/day. Yes, I just open a bank account this morning and have zero balance in it (thanks to the bank which need no initial fund).

    So far:
    + Money Spend: $0
    + Money Earn: $0

    Wish me luck everyone! Yes, I still believe in luck but still need to take action in order to have luck.

    Jaky

    I am right here with you in your journey. I also saw your previous post, and i sincerely want you to look into microworkers (google it). You will be able with a little luck to make 1$/day there, everyday. That was my starting point in IM, and even now after two years, i still have a great consideration for that site.

    Wow! You're right that you take action now. I believe the luck will be with you who are working hard and not just procrastination like some experts.

    I admire your mind that you are courage enough to spend at least on the paid hosting and TLD. Unlike some big dump a** internet markets who just come and don't even brave enough to spend at least for paid hosting and TLD like you do.

    Keep up the good work guy and think positively. In addition, don't give up and ready to bank hard while you're on this great community.

    I think everyone will advice you well. If you have any doubt, don't afraid to ask.

    Hi OP, you seem to have a very good English, which does not match with your condition of living. With this kind of good English you can sell articles online, get a day or night job in a call center or work as sales representative. Seems strange situation to me.

    OK! It's now passing on about 7 hours from my first post of this journey (I'm not lazy, I'm working too hard, so this is not a problem for me).

    I just came back from my labor full-time work; I immediately disturbed my little boy to turn on the PC and connect the internet for me (I'm still learning so far).

    I've got 2 private messages. And yes, I'm very appreciated and thankful to this community because I could not just learn many new things (I couldn't ever heard and it's like a stranger for me) but also the motivation and helps.

    The first message was to help me to design the site for me. OK! I don't have any money to design the site, but I could just install the default template of 2013, WordPress. He was kind enough to help me to make a good template for my niche site for free (thanks to you; you're kind enough to help a poor like me).
    Furthermore, he sent me a good deal on hosting and domain name. 50% off for life of hosting and $0.99 for the first year of domain name at NameCheap. So, I paid 1 year for the price of hosting is $22.71 + $1.17 for domain name and Icann fee. Totally, the expense is $23.88.
    More than that, those were not the affiliation at all. And, the hosting is also good for my budget as well as the domain registrar.

    The second message was the motivation to support and encourage me to be successful. Thank you for your kind message and motivation. Yes, I'll follow you along for your journey, too. Don't forget to drop me a message of your journey thread; I'm waiting to see and feel your success soon.

    P.S: Sayo, I could not reply to the private message to thank you back, I don't have enough status to use this feature. Yet, please don't forget to let me know your journey thread; I'm sure to follow you for good.

    The important point (if you're busy enough not to read my above fluffs and stuffs):
    1- I've got a hand with the site design template (while this was a helping hand and not a promotional thread, we'd better not to say the name).
    2- I've got a good hosting provider and domain name registrar (thanks to him again).
    3- I've got more motivation (thanks to the person who motivate me, I think he knows that I thank him personally).


    OK! That's all for my today activities. To wrap up all of my achievement (I like to call this the achievement because I feel I'm going smooth), I'm now moving further to have my own paid hosting and domain name as well as a good theme (designed by a very kind guy who was very good enough to help me for the template). The template is yet completed because I've just picked my niche topic and researched. Therefore, he said it will be good to go during this week, about 3 or 4 days.


    Now now now! my financial statement is changing:
    + Spending: $23.88
    + Earning: $0

    Thank you in advanced for your reading and following as well as the best recommendations and helps.

    Ah! I was a bit too tired so that I couldn't read all of the replies.

    One thing that I've noticed is that "What is my Language OR what is my country?".

    Answer: I'm living in Cambodia, a small country in South East Asia. Cambodia is speaking the native language, Khmer.

    I am feeling confused because I don't know where or how to earn with something that you've posted about freelance writer or so.
    In Cambodia, there is no such a job to do this. At least, they're very strict to allow someone like me to do this kind of job.
    They're only allowing the least of Undergraduate.

    As I have no any degree, I had even not finished primary school, I couldn't get those kind of jobs. They won't let me in.
    I am here to not just make any assumption, but I've already tried it for some years. Finally, I must accept the truth of the current situation that's why I'm still me, poor Jaky, today.

    I cannot understand how it is possible to live on $60 a month. I do not mean any disrespect at all. It is amazing you can rent a place and eat 2 meals a day for that amount. Incredible differences in the cost of living depending on the country.

    Anyway, good luck on your journey.

    I can already tell you're going to succeed. Just by reading his posts, you can already tell how dedicated and hard working he is.
    Heck. He joined this month and started his journey on his THIRD post. Most people just ask stupid questions in the beginning.

    Kudos. I'd wish you luck, but your hard work will get you further.

    How do you plan to monetize your website? You should have not started with paid domain and host, because people are prone to make mistakes first, but instead start with a free blog from blogger or wordpress. Anyway, i wish you all the good luck and if you need any help just post here or send me a pm.

    I don't usually read these journey threads, let alone post on them. But the title caught my attention, you said $80 per month working 10 hours a day? My cell phone bill alone is $120 per month. That is insane! With that said, you have my support. Feel free to contact me via Skype anytime. (Assuming you know how to?) I'll help you out as much as possible.

    Good luck! :)
