    What's up fellow people of this amazing forum. I guess you're here because you want to read what I'm up to... Or something like that.
    Anyways, a little background on myself so you know who I am:

    -From the USA
    -I have little to no experience in IM, SEO, or much at all.
    -I'm an avid procrastinator (aren't we all :p)
    -I like turtles.

    So, what is my journey going to accomplish?

    I hope this thread can help the complete noobs of IM as I start from absolutely nothing, and work my way up. Maybe I'll be entertaining enough to have some bigger people monitoring this thread occasionally as well, although I'd doubt it :)

    What do I have?
    -Tons of motivation
    -$50 in Paypal (what a shame :x)
    -Two domains, one is around a lottery niche, one is really random.

    What are my downsides?
    -Terribly slow internet connection (no Youtube uploading for me.. literally like 100kbps down, 10kbps up)

    Now reading through a few threads on here I see people saying stuff like "I bet you give up within a month" :(. I won't let that happen :p

    Here's a quick checklist of goals I can go through whilst doing IM, if you guys have any other things I should add (like make a MNS, etc let me know :p) These are just money goals at the moment, will add new stuff like "rank for the first page in a keyword" or something. Little goals :p

    Pick a method to start working on []
    Make $1 []
    Make $ 50 []
    Make $100 []
    Make $500 []
    Make $1,000 []
    Make $5,000 []
    Make $1,000 in one month []

    Thanks for reading.
    Let's kick some (insert swear here)

    Alright, have spent a little while doing research. I've decided I'm going to try and write a few articles per week on my lesser targeted site and try to build it up to an authority site. This will be a long-term project I can go to when I'm bored of other work.

    As for my very targeted lottery site.. I signed up for Clickbank today and noticed quite a few of Lottery products on there. I need to choose whether I want to make a review site, blog site, comparison site, or just a Squeeze Page. If anyone has any advice on this or a preference I'd like to hear it :)

    This is likely how things will be for me. I usually like to carefully plan things out then approach it. Sorry if this isn't the most entertaining thing yet. I promise I'll try my best to make it entertaining as we go on :p

    Awesome, today since I got home from school (about 3 hours ago):
    -Applied for a PostLoop account.
    -Researched Squeeze pages and how they will work with affiliates
    -Found some nice Squeeze pages up for download in BHW's download section
    -Uploaded a Squeeze page to my site, also had to install Wordpress.
    -Noticed I was accepted to PostLoop in about an hour.
    -Spent the next 2 hours posting to PostLoop and made $5 (lame I know :p)

    So I made my first $5. Feels pretty awesome haha.

    I think I'm going to set up an article writing gig on Fiverr. I'd just like to be getting a little bit of side income while I work on my current projects.

    Until next time o/

    Today I was out most of the day. Tonight I got a few things done:
    -Signed up for iWriter
    -Did a ton of Keyword Research for my new website I'll be launching within a week (hopefully)
    -Going to start learning the basics of coding. Things like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP. I'll try to pick it up as I go along.
    -Downloaded the free trial of Long Tail Pro. Excellent software, made keyword research a lot easier. Will probably be one of the first things I buy once I have the money.

    Does anyone have experience with using iWriter for money? It just seems really...not worth it. Literally ~$2 for 500 words on a very very targeted article which most people know nothing about. Do people usually just spin them or something? oO
