    I have been following this forum for over a year now and it has helped me make a few bucks. It wasn't alot but it was pretty easy money.

    I first started in February with Tumblr. I just made one to try it out. At first I would just post things, not trying to monetize it. On my fourth month I had over 2,000 followers and I decided to start monetizing it with mylikes. I ended up earning over $25 dollars for not really doing much of anything at all.

    Scrapping pics was automated.
    Uploading to Queue was automated.
    It was so easy to do by just spending less than 5 minutes a day of working.

    Well today my one tumblr blog finally got banned. Now I am thinking of how I could upscale this to earn alot more.


    I have tried to create a wp blog to send my tumblr traffic but I ran into a little problem... "Adult Content". Tumblr is full of reblogs and is hosting on their own servers. I know I cant just steal adult content and post it on a wordpress as I could get in trouble for it. It would be a shame to have to keep starting over again with Tumblr, instead of building my own site that tumblr can help build up. Hmm, I have alot more research to do.

    My journey has taught me alot and most importantly that it is possible to generate some income online.

    Then don't build a site for adult. I've dabbled in tumblr for about the same time frame.

    There is a market for anything on tumblr. Just try to find a niche with a lot of public domain material. I finally thought of a good angle with this approach and am growing faster than my porn blogs ever did.

    Also, find a good tool for ripping pictures from specific galleries of websites. Some sites keep their cc material in specific galleries and finding one of those honeypots will save you a lot of time.

    I think it also helps to pick a niche that you are actually interested in. I find it easier to pick out quality material with stuff i actually get. And that goes along way with tumblr.

    Good luck on your journey.

    SixAlarm Thanks for the advice. I have been working on a little side project for the past couple of months. I have been learning Html, Css, Dreamweaver, and Drupal. I think these would be useful skills in the future and I am thinking about starting something in the technology niche when I feel I am ready.

    Some porn sites let you share their videos with iframes... simple copy and past and no worry about copyright...
