If you glance at my join date, you'll see that I've been around awhile. I came here a long time ago, back when Auto blogs, link wheels, and MFA sites were all the rage. I don't want to say I half-@ssed an attempt at doing some IM'ing, because that would overestimate my effort greatly. I did, however get some web hosting, buy a couple of domains, throw a few things up there, get an Adsense account, and over the years accumulated lifetime Adsense earnings of around $75. I long since let everything fall apart though, to the point that my hosting account was canceled. Now I find myself back at this site for different reasons than the first time around, and hopefully with a little more willpower to get a few things done. My first goal is to get a consistent $1/day of Adsense earnings. Exciting, I know. You might be asking why am I setting such a ridiculously low goal. Well, there's an old saying: the first million is the hardest. I think it applies here. If I can earn $1/day with Adsense, it's not that much of a stretch to double it, and then double it again. And you don't have to poke around here for long to realize that there are much better ways to monetize organic traffic than Adsense. Changing up my monetization method could easily multiply those Adsense earnings again. So with that said, here I go !
