I'm starting this thread because I feel like it will give me the motivation to work everyday to achieve my goal. A little bit about me: I have a college degree and a small blog that I do for fun. It is completely on autopilot because I got a lot of friends who are english majors who would write for free as long as I buy them a beer . I am a complete noob and this thread is inspired by "bluematter's" journey. Goals: To achieve at least $100/day. Learn a little bit on on page and off page SEO. Work at least 6 hrs a day. My Plan: Read up on the fundamentals of an Authority website and get to know a little more about SEO. Selecting my niche and doing research on it. Buy a domain, install wordpress, and design my website. Post a lot of articles. Apply for adsense! This will be a big learning process for me. I will be giving updates on what I did and what I learned. Any tips/advice along the way would be nice. Thanks for reading!
