    Fancy intro goes here.

    A little bit about me quick. My name is Conor. I am 20 years old currently. I live in South Africa. I never finished school because it was my dream to work and live alone. Which I did for about 6 months. Hated it. Manual labour for days. I hated it, so I quit.

    I moved in with family, and started doing odd jobs, making websites for people and learning SEO slowly. Recently, in mid January, I decided to stick Adsense on my blog (I love writing, and write about almost anything that comes to mind)

    I researched all the methods I could find on BHW to make money. Finally, I decided to stop procrastinating, and actually do something. After making less than a Rand on my blog with Adsense in January, I looked on Google Trends for some inspiration. I found a local trending topic with almost no competition and a good number of monthly searches (Over 9000).

    Long story short, I wrote an article for this keyword, got first result in Google and I am currently making R100 a day on average from this one article. My traffic is around 300 unique visitors on average per day. I've recently made my first R1000 in Adsense earnings.

    It's not much I know, but my plan is to carry on doing what I'm doing, double my earnings next month and the same the next month, till I can move in to that beach house I've always wanted!

    In case this is tl;dr, I've made a nice little list, to get you on to the path of internet riches.


    1. Research a keyword with low competition/lots of searches
    2. Write an article and monetize it
    3. Profit.

    I can't make it simpler. I've heard people say it's difficult to earn with Adsense. All I can say is stay motivated and you will succeed!

    Great stuff. Nice to hear stories like this where people actually go beyond and make an effort to pursue something different within their liking.
