    Alright guys, been lurking for awhile and posting very little, think its about time I change all that.

    I spent most of my time thus far E-Whoring but I despise the work so much so I'm looking to jump out of that and decided to attempt starting up some long term WH income. Hopefully within a week or so I'll start profiting even if it is something as little as $1/day. I truly believe over the course of a year or maybe longer this has potential to grow into something HUGE.

    A little backround on myself I suppose so you can get an idea about me.
    The names Mike and im currently 19 years old (MPC1990 was a very old screen name made that always stuck... initials+birthyear how original I know)
    Born and raised on the east coast of the U.S. I was supposed to go into my 4th semester of college, a very well known one, but came to the realization that none of the majors and possible careers really interest me, so I dropped out and if all goes wrong I'll just head back I guess lol
    Luckily most of my family supports my decision although just about all my friends called me retarded (oh well, maybe they're right)

    Onto the project - Over the course of the next few hours I'm going to be buying a few domains+ hosting, thinking GoDaddy+Hostgator but am open to suggestions on the cheapest way seeing as my budget atm isn't much, I've searched for coupon codes etc but most seem expired so any help here would be absolutely beautiful

    I'm going to be creating probably 2-3 sites over the next couple days. I believe that I'm going to be using wordpress at it appears to be one of the easiest ways of starting off. Searchs around my niche are GIGANTIC pulling up around 200,000,000 sites for some and roughly 50,000,000 for others but none of these sites on pages 1-3 seems to be too targeted towards my keywords so I truly believe I can get a good page rank, only time will tell. My main focus is having the ability to bring in millions of people though on a topic that can potentially bring in GIGANTIC amounts of traffic. I'm looking to create the BEST site for my niche, reporting the BEST news on my topics and overall just having a top quality site which will constantly bring in people. I believe this is all achievable.

    For money making purposes I believe I'm going to be using Bitvertiser as people seem to overall like it more than adwords, however I probably will experiment with all the various PPC companies over time.

    Furthermore I'm going to be throwing up a handful of products from CB and CJ that are very sellable (I think) to the audience that will be viewing the sites.

    As mentioned earlier, I'm new to all of this so I honestly expect a loss at first, but at the very least I think this will be a great learning experience with many different aspects of IM (article writing, SEO, PPC, building backlinks etc...)

    Anyways off we go, I'll probably update this later today/tonight and then probably sometime on black friday because Thansgiving is most likely going to be a very hectic day for me for obvious reasons.
    First time really taking action here, always been afraid of failure but it's part of the game right?

    Hope you guys at the very least might be able to learn something even if it is something stupid like how to not mess up like me :p

    P.S - Sorry for the lengthy post, and my keyboard sucks so sorry for the potential typos and words lacking spaces inbetween them. sometimes the keys and spacebar just decide to stop working on me.

    You sound like you have a good plan - my one bit of advice - do not buy your domain names with godaddy:
    • their service is terrible
    • they actually "confiscate" domains which receive complaints (even if you are going to be 100% WH, it just takes one dedicated competitor to get you in trouble)
    • you can find domain names cheaper with better control panels (I like enom / enom resellers)

    Don't forget to keep a detailed journal of everything you do...
    and never forget to enjoy the journey!

    ps... I know it's not what you want right now, but don't give up on college - get the degree - in anything, it doesn't matter - even if you just take a couple of online classes from your local state U per semester, eventually you will have the degree - 'cause you never know when it might come in handy ;)

    Try out name.com for the domain name, I feel they have very good service, Stick away from Godaddy.

    Its currently 3:30 AM where I live so I figured a quick update was in order.

    Bought a handful of domains, hosting turns out to be much more $ then I was expecting (whoops). For now I'm hosting a few sites linked through blogspot. Basically bum marketing till I can afford the hosting through profit as I really don't want to dish out more money towards this project atm.

    Hopefully tomorrow I'll start earning some sort of $ for now I'm currently at (-$60) for this project lol

    On another note, I believe I came up with a GENIOUS idea tonight whilst out with friends, essentially a membership site of sorts. Talking over it with roughly 30 kids, everybody says they would immediatly sign up and love the site. However I have no ability to create this site/program everything for it. If any well respected and or known members would possibly be interested in JV'ing for this PM me or get in touch through AIM - RockMusicalWays. I would be bringing the Idea to the table and be willing to fund this badboy while someone much better than myself in webdesign etc would do the labor & 50/50 profit split
