    Hello! I've been a lurker of the site for some time now, and so far have learned a ton.

    I'm making a journey thread to try and keep myself motivated.

    What I've done so far:

    Played around with PPD and YouTube a month or so ago and forgot about it.
    Logged into my cleanfiles account a saw I had some money in there, so I guess that's where I'll start!
    Also started messing around with Tumblr using a couple threads I found here.

    Goals:
    Make a bit of money to invest in more opportunities


    Day 1:
    Tumblr: Started a new Tumblr, tossed a couple ads up, loaded 15 pictures and 2 gifs. Did some reblogging, liking, following, and pinning. All manual, though. Would like a way to automate the process.
    PPD: Nothing today

    Day 1 earnings (so far):
    Tumblr:

    $0.03

    Cleanfiles:

    $3.21

    The cleanfiles earnings aren't for just today. As I said, I messed around with it a couple months ago and forgot about it. Was really surprised to log in and see I had some money sitting there.

    Thanks for reading!

    Edit- Updated earnings.

    Good luck buddy! I believe there was a few automated Tumblr iMacros released, search around here for them. I remember seeing an auto-follower, liker, and uploader ;)

    Hmm, I'll have to check those out! Thanks!

    --
    Day 2:

    Tumblr:
    Loaded 15 new pictures. Pinned, liked, reblogged, etc.
    Edited the theme for a better layout.
    Added Facebook and Twitter buttons.
    Worked a bit on the search engine side of things.
    Gained a few followers! :D

    Youtube/PPD:
    Made a couple new videos (brings the total to 3 on one account, 1 on another. Trying to get faster making/uploading the videos), set them up with comments/likes/subs
    Looks like I'm having trouble with conversions. Getting views and clicks, just no downloads. Will have to check some things out and figure out what's going wrong.

    Day 2 Earnings:

    Tumblr:
    $0.04

    Youtube/PPD:
    $0

    Not much at all. But still, it's a start. It will get better.

    Day 3:

    Not giving up even though the numbers are low.

    Tumblr:

    Loaded 15 new posts. Did all the necessary stuff.
    Gained some followers and made a new friend. :)
    Worked on the SEO side some more.

    Youtube:

    Worked on the SEO side.
    More views/likes/etc
    Will upload some new videos tomorrow
    Running kinda short on credits from the two sources I'm using.

    Blog:

    Started a new blog using another thread here. Messing around with Pinterest trying to learn everything.
    Got about 100 uvs today, so not too bad. Though I think I can do better.
    Worked on a bit of the SEO side on that as well. Will do more tomorrow.

    Day 3 Earnings:

    Yup, just a few cents. But it's steadily increasing. I have faith!

    Quick update.
    Had to rush my grandmother to the hospital a couple days ago (She's fine now), so I've been unable to do a lot. Just a couple tumblr updates here and there.

    Still doing the normal stuff. Though, I haven't had time to do much with Youtube the last couple of days.
    Still making ~10 cents a day.

    But checked today and I managed to rank my blog on the first page of Google! I've never been able to do this with any site before. So it's kinda exciting!

    Ranked number 1 now!!
