    Making my own money.

    Hello all. This is the beginning of my journal. I'm going to investigate my potential at making money from my computer chair. I'm leaving the methods broad at the moment as I want to experiment and try out different strategies to see what works, but I hope to employ some of the excellent techniques I've already read on this forum despite being new to it. Hopefully this thread will eventually become a log of techniques and information that will be useful to others who are intrigued by the idea of making money from their bedroom desk but are intimidated / overwhelmed by the whole concept... I know I have been.

    This journal will add a consistency and regularity to my various attempts to earn money, I hope by updating in a structured and clear way that the rest of my work habits will follow a similar disciplined pattern, as I know you have to persevere to make this work! I apologise for the long text in this first post but I want to outline my motivation and mindset for wanting to start this campaign in the first place. I will use it an an anchor point so if I ever feel unproductive or am losing sight on my ambitions I can reread this and centre myself because I know this is what I really want.

    Why have I chosen to try and make money online?

    During the summer I qualified with my masters degree in architecture. This was the culmination of 6 years of hard work, study and a lot of student debt. Over 4 months have passed since graduation and with the current economy in the UK (where I live) I have had no luck in obtaining employment in the architecture field. I've tried really hard to make it work but I need to accept that this is something I will have to forget about for now, I need to make money to survive. So I want to make a really committed effort to create an online revenue before I concede to working a low paying job in a restaurant or retail. Of course there is nothing wrong with these honest jobs but I know I would be much happier if I could work from home, making my own hours, being my own boss making decisions. It's just the kind of person that I am, and I need to listen to that.

    If I can succeed in this endeavour I feel like I will have some control over my future and my ability to live a comfortable life without working a job I hate. This is my ultimate goal and just thinking about it makes me happy and full of enthusiasm. Ok enough talking from me for now! I will be making daily posts about my strategies and progress. Keep in mind that this is the very beginning of my adventure, so my progress will probably appear slow and unimpressive for some time until I pick up more knowledge and momentum, but you have to start somewhere!


    Best of luck to all of you!

    with that mindset you wont succeed.

    You first need to walk before you can run.

    By that i mean the most important thing you need to realise and learn fast (something that took me 3 years to discover and understand)

    Its worthless trying to do multiple methods at same time from scratch.

    you end up with none of them working.

    Far better to concentrate for a few months on 1 method that YOU believe in and have a personal interest in.

    Once you succeed once, it gets a whole lot easier

    Best of luck mate

    Hmm you are taking an extraordinary long time with your keyword research. Personally I am not a fan of MS (tried it didn't really like it) so just to help you out these are some of the best keyword tutorials on BHW:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-absolute-newbies-guide-keyword-research.html
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ethod-step-step-keyword-research-newbies.html
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...earch-find-what-ranks-post-panda-penguin.html

    Hopefully these give you a better idea as to what you want to look for. Make no mistake Keyword research is essential in SEO but you can fall into the trap of focusing too much on the keyword research and end up not doing anything with them.
