    I decided to create a massive introduction thread. Obviously it is not massive yet, because I just now posted it (well technically I'm still typing it lol :D) But anyways, I made this thread to reintroduce myself, and allow all members (both new and old to do the same).


    About Me

    Most of you already know me, but for those of you who don't, I have been in IM for several years, and a member of bhw for going on 3 years. I currently do work in the email marketing field, also work with leads, business advice, and a little content writing, ebook and guide creating aswell as running a few other miscellaneous businesses. So thats about me. What about you? :)

    Me I am just a regular guy trying to do his best and help others along the way if I can...

    Have worked on the Internet full time since 1995 and one learns a lot if you can keep paying the rent et al and keep going! I guess on that basis I have some knowledge and experience to give and share around...

    Well , Since you guy's started first I guess I'll go next. I've been doing IM for awhile now. At first I really didn't take it seriously,which was one of my biggest mistakes. It was just a hobby for me for a few years, now I'm trying to take it to the next level. Right now I'm just freelancing, doing Web design, SEO and SEM.

    I have been on the forum for nearly 2 years but not really doing much IM just buying a few mns and then authority learning as I go. I work a 40 hr a week job, just about to start a business alongside that as I have a lot of free time at my office so going to multitask and I want to be able to quit my job by the end of the year and earn purely online.

    Income goal is 2500 a month and I want to earn from different sources so as to cover my back if something goes wrong. The new business is an offline site to resell bhw services to offline clients :) and I am also in the process of creating a further localised site to sell ad space on :)

    I'm a second year Computer Engineering student and I started blogging about a year ago. I'm just a regular guy and I love to learn. My personal goal for this year is to earn $1000/month so that I can help my family to pay for all the bills..

    I hope I can make good friends here. Especially the OP because I always read his inspirational posts everyday..

    Hello, I have been reading the forum for quite some time before deciding to make an account, and after opening an account didn't post much.
    So i was just an average guy, but hoping to change that starting fresh from the new year.

    Just for curiosity steelballs: How was the internet back in '95? Could you tell as something how things runned back in those days?

    I am a maniac. Those who are close to me believe that I am unpredictable because I like to play lots of pranks on them. :p I was a national Chess player. After playing professional chess for over a decade, Four years back I switched to content writing. This field has now become my passion and my only source of income. :D I like to help others as it gives me happiness. My dream is to open a huge institute for poor and needy children.

    Thanks 2011nfl for starting such a thread. It's always great to know people behind these usernames.

    Cheers :)

    I am not really a BH IMer like you guys, though I'd still like to become one! :).

    I'm here on BHW because this is the only place that I love to be on the internet! I like to be among all these members, and I spend hours reading. BHW has always been my 2nd home!

    Thank you guys! Be happy and very rich, both together! :)

    I started IM about 2 years ago, actually was a customer rep for an online shop, then moved to SEO and email marketing for them. About a year ago I started my own online shop and 6 months ago I registered my own company. I'm just 24, a lot of people say I'm too young and work too hard, about 15 hours a day but what they don't know is I spend a few of those on BHW daily :D

    Am opening up new ventures, hoping to open more ecommerce sites which I outsource most of the operations, be an SEO consultant for a couple of friends/partners and once that is rolling, open a fast food chain (I have an amazing idea that will be so unique and good, you will hear about me in a few years! ) ;)

    BHW is also kind of my second home cos I am a european living in China with Chinese-only flatmates and Chinese-only colleagues so I really need to unwind in the week with some hardcore black hat chat online!

    Nice to meet all of you above, its each individual that makes this community what it is.

    Great Thread.

    I come from traditional businesses (was a partner in a mortgage company, sold meetings with hedge fund managers & still own a contracting company) and turned my attention to eComm because I got sick of local economic cycles. I mainly use SEO/PPC for traffic, still learning about e-mail and a few other things. I try to do things right the first time and build sustainable sites with large potential and it has been working very well. Happy to be a member of this community.

    I entered the IM arena 4 years ago. It took me 3 years to achieve what I want. A LOT of struggle, a LOT of scam, a LOT of disappointments....yeah I went through them all.

    I was a regular guy who measured 5'8" (stopped growing at the age of 13), with a regular build. Failed twice in both 8th and 9th grade. So, in total 2 years lost there. An extra 1 year lost on 3rd grade when I couldn't go to school for lack of money. Guys around me bullied me, beaten me up, did every bad thing I couldn't even imagine.

    Now, I measure 5'10" (took extreme action to increase my height at the age of 19), earning good chunk of money (I eat SEO, I drink SEO), built a "Hulk" look, and have several "A/A+" on various so-called certificates. Can sleep anytime I want, can wake up anytime I want. People think twice before going against me. I don't give a damn to any of them.

    It's a shame how many people told me that I am worth NOTHING. I don't want any revenge or something, it's just sad how most people treat the failures. Does life depends only on some certificates? Is it some kind of "Universal Truth" that the person who is failing will always fail? I found the answers - NO.

    I am happy I can support my family now. Strong possibility is I will make my parents a new home later this year. Only my mother knows about my online ventures so I imagine what will my father and sister think once the new home is built :D

    I am grateful to my mother for helping me in every possible way and believing in me. I am grateful to my whole family. I love them and living for them.

    Good luck to anyone who is starting in IM. Patience is everything - that's all I wanna say.

    Heyy everybody, I'm Twixx. 18 years old from Finland. :)

    I'm a pretty calm (sometimes lazy) creative guy, who tries to do my best doing IM, even if I haven't had very much success so far. Offline I'm working as a cleaning lady for a local company (Cleaning staircases), and online I'm working mainly with web / graphic design, animations, and other creative stuff that comes to my mind.

    I started with IM since I've always been eager to make money, and I never want to become a slave under a 9-5 job.

    Hi to all. I'm from the Borneo, been a BHW member since Jul 2012, and decided to get into Jr. VIP about two months ago (love it!). I have made a few helpful and trustworthy friends in BHW and they have helped me a lot in my IM journey. I was a web designer for about five years (on and off) and currently work as a civil servant, and do IM when I'm free. I use my web design experience to do some IM, but reading through many, many post in BHW made me realize that there's a lot more to learn.

    Awesome Share. Such a post will help many beginners who have negative perception about failure. Glad that you took out time to share your life failures and how you dealt with them.

    My turn I guess.

    Well first of all I did not know that IM existed I thought people earning money online is just from adsense that is what is first did but I didn't know what I was doing.

    I discovered Dutch PTC sites when I was around 17 and I always tried to think of methods of how to scale it up because per click you get something around nothing and you have to have a lot of clicks and because I was thinking of methods I discovered BHW.
    I was looking for a traffic bot and I came across the thread of fatboys fake traffic bot.

    So as always I started reading and I saw his post about him that he was on a little vacation or something and because of that he couldn't reply to the guys that asked questions on the thread. I thought by myself this guys here must make some pretty good money.
    And I added BHW to my favorite because I had my exams within a month.

    After my exams I opened BHW and started reading because I was curious about this forum the first thread that I read that day was:"how much you making with CPA" Or something like that I didn't know what CPA was but the money they mentioned that they were making was just amazing and I think because of that threads that I read in the beginning is the reason that I stayed here.

    Well as I said my exams where over so i had 3 months of vacation.
    And everyday when I woke up I started reading threads and searching for things that people mentioned all the time like SB, CPA and stuff because I didn't know what it was.

    And now I know what it means and BHW actually changed my life, I am not making good money but I know I will because the 9-5 is just not for me.

    I know it is a big post but I never introduced myself:cool:

    This brought me here. The thought in my head was curious to how is it that some artist who were not popular would have SO MANY VIEWS on a fresh YT video? It made my skin melt to see those numbers. I'd see twitter profiles with MASSIVE followers. I continued asking questions clicking on followers and quickly recognizing bot pages. I asked myself who do these people go to in order to get so many profiles, likes, views, and plays?

    ((Is it this guy in Hawaii on his PC with a flower shirt on, sunglasses & sitting at desk with the window on his right side with a scenic ocean view?))

    Back In Time
    I had a business in HS which me and friends would stay up nights manually creating pages to boost our friends music notoriety amongst the city. Although the bots were beginning to outnumber us. Our minds were shocked when we received a MSG in the mysterious words of "There Are More Of Us Then There Are Of You" while "pulling a night'.

    Fast forward
    Im fascinated these skills can make a product famous and or even get someone a decent job doing something even better perceivable because they're popular among the net. I like the idea of humans providing a service with the help of bots & I was doing it incorrectly. I am a computer musician who spends most of his time on the PC becoming the guy in Hawaii.:cool:
