Just thought this up while I was skating home tonight.. I don't know if it's been done, thought of, or even posted here, but here goes. As for criticism, shoot me - I don't do this, it was just an idea I thought might help spark a few more ideas around here for people. Personal Weight Loss Blog Method Start up your own blog, wherever you want, with whatever theme you want etc. Start off the first post with some crap like "I decided to start my own personal weight loss blog to really motivate myself to update this everyday, doing so will keep me more motivated to finally drop a few sizes. I will update this daily with what I do to help, what I eat .. bla bla.." and so on. Post in the blog every day with some bullsh*t updates and make it look like you're actually getting closer and closer to your "goal". All in the mean while you wanna have small adverts on the sides for health/weight loss offers, or adsense whatever suits you.. Like I said do this the way you want. When you finally "reach your goal" make a huge post, going on about how it's the best day of your live, that you've already been on twice as many dates in the last weeks and that you even got a new job - something dramatic (people love dramatic crap). In this last post you wanna advertise "what you've been using" all this time - this is where your affiliate skills come in. That's it, this could prety much be used for a variety of different "goals", categories or blogs.. I'm not sure if this would be highly succesful but maybe if you commented around health blogs about the fact that your on a road to weight loss, follow my blog etc. you might start getting followers or whatnot. All I can think of is to make this realy profitable would be to scale. In other words, outsource a few writers to do a blog or two each, pay them daily or weekly or something to make it realistic, and keep them all connected in a way... Hope someone can use this to their advantage..
