    Sorry to take up your time I'm sure you're busy as there's much to read obviously haha

    I started visiting BHW back toward 2013 and I suppose I owe my success and current career to everything I've read here and the spark of motivation & enthusiasm that BHW inspired in me.

    I just wanted to leave some quick feedback simply because I'm excited to become involved and finally contribute something to BHW. Reading the rules and all the internal links was actually really exciting.

    It's been almost 2 years since I've been back here honestly. I started my career and stuck to that for awhile. Now that I've come back and created an account where I can finally contribute I read all these rules and guides and it reminded me just how truly massive BHW is. How active it is and how many deep dark corners and pockets of information there is.

    So I wanted to thank all the mods & admins that took the time to write those thorough posts teaching me how to get more out of my BHW experience than I ever got from lurking. Thank you for getting me excited about getting back into the research. For teaching me how to better use the search and expand into the advanced search. I'm excited. Also, I can't wait to contribute.

    @HatArrows Yes right away. I remember I was very poor and had just gotten out of the hospital. I had a mat on the floor and a TV on the floor and a mobile phone that was it. I built my first website at the library and drove traffic manually from my phone. My first web biz made $2K per month. I was also working night shift at a large grocery store in my hometown... and I make music. My hometown knows me for my music. I was working my shift one night and another musician, an old friend, came in with his girlfriend--and I was so embarrassed of working there that I left in the middle of my shift. My business was making enough money to pay my bills so why not... When I got home... IG had banned all my bots on Instagress and pegged all my device IDs so my business came to a complete halt. I was so distraught. How was I going to pay my bills? I started driving traffic manually from a laptop I had gotten and just grew and grew and never looked back. MY first year I made about $35K then sold the business and started my first Business Intelligence / Web Consultancy. I kept site flipping from there and now I have a day job as a strategic consultant and several online businesses.

    @jimmyth3dog I don't really have a good answer for you. I guess the reason why I'm making an account now is that I feel like I can actually provide help, feedback, ideas. Just like one of the mods/admins said in one of the beginning threads (most likely @Don't Panic) You get out of it what you put in. The #1 pitfall to making money online I've read here is project hopping so in the beginning I was all over the place somewhat. I created my account because I wanted to become involved, because I felt that now I "belong"
