    You can look at it this way, if you're buying articles that are meant to be in English but they're poorly written, mentioning some grammatical mistakes and pointing them to something like Grammarly (which you would hope any English content writer would know about) could actually take their service from Tier 2 quality to Tier 1, all from your hel

    Your AdSense stats are awesome! Good luck on your journey. One question, are your articles product reviews or non affiliate information posts?

    I've admittedly already replied to this but thought it worth adding that based on what I've read on threads in the market place there are mechanisms for reporting if you don't feel the quality was up to standard. Perhaps you could reach out to the Mod who approved the seller and ask if they would be willing to review one of the articles you have received. If they agree to review then they will either agree with you, in which case you can be more confident in your assessment and proceed from there, or they will say the content is fine for the level paid and you can consider if you still want to buy content, perhaps paying more, or look at writing your own.

    Received my pin code today for future withdrawals! This feels awesome :D even though it’s just a pin code. It’s like a mail telling me that I will make it and quit my job!

    Unfortunately, I’m back to work tonight :(

    Sure! You can message me. I went through like 5-7 writers so I’ll tell you who I recommend but it’s all my opinion.
    Thanks for the advice! I’ve been doing that :) I appreciate it!
    I hope the same for you! Gotta keep pushing!
    Since my site 1 is broad, I’m more focused on informative articles. Site 2 is targeted and focus on affiliate.
    I’m 23! I want to enjoy my life by 25 or at least not work for someone and work on my own schedule.
    Thanks for you advice! I always get the guilt feeling, idk. People are working to survive and live and I don’t want to screw anything up ya feel. I’m just going through writers and see which one works out for me. If quality is bad, I’ll just move on :) I appreciate your concern though!

    If you can't get away with double posting in your own journey I don't know where you could :p

    Yay for organic traffic. Hope your new content meets your standards

    So far site1’s total earning: $18.10
    Site2 meh

    I’m pretty drained from my actual job tbhhh.. so much physical labor T-T

    I’m in my car typing this out... I have to head into work in 13 minutes on an 8 hour shift.

    Definitely! Let me finish working tonight and get my 8 hour rest and I’ll PM you over the weekend when I’m less drained :)
    I hope so too! Thanks for your support!
    Sorry for the spam again! Jk :)

    For site1... I think I spent around ~$250 total? It’s around there :)
    Thanks! My traffic declined in the last day but rankings are still climbing everyday which is more important to me. It could be because of the day of the week? Idk. I look forward to everyday though because my rankings continue to climb :)

    Part of me is ashamed for not putting in as much effort as my expectation this weekend. I have work in about 10 hours and I added around 300 words of content into my most visited article.

    I haven’t been satisfy with the remaining of the articles that I ordered. Was only satisfied with two.

    Anyway, if I want to get out of this lifestyle.... I need to work harder and smarter. I saw high quality article writers charging $20 a piece but I feel a bit hesitant because part of me, needs the money for groceries and emergency.

    I’ll wait until my next paycheck to order maybe 1 high quality a week this time. As I’m typing this, I’m also editing some of my top articles and adding more content to it. I hope that it’ll help me rank even higher.

    My rankings are definitely increasing every day but page views remain average. I hope that changes.

    I know right. RIP banned follower.
    Sure! It’s been unfortunate for me though. It hasn’t been up to my standards.

    Building everything up is a long process, as long as you're making progress in the right direction it's all good even if you didn't hit your targets :D
    And, if that isn't enough, remember you're one of the few actually doing something rather than spouting off about it.

    Emergency funds, in my opinion, should always be first. You make yourself more resilient in case something happens, which frees you up for taking over the world :anyway:

    Hey man! I got the hibiscus that you recommended! Decided to stop being a lazy ass and go to Starbucks and focus better. Also tutoring my baby sister in the background on her HW :)
