    Hello everyone, long time lurker here and thanks to @se900se, I decided to start making money to pay off my debts. I am dedicated to making this journey thread last more than a couple of weeks. I'm mainly making this journey to keep me focussed and to avoid procrastination because I'm already doing that.

    I already invested a good amount of money into this, because I want everything to look smooth and flow smoothly. I will try my best to update this thread once a week with my progress and whatnot. I do not have any ads on my site yet. I'm waiting until I have about 30 quizzes before I apply for Adsense.

    I have taken quizzes before, and I can not stand the page refreshing after every question, before you comment, I know not adding that feature will not bring me as much money, but I would rather have my visitors not deal with that.

    I am also going to be posting to social media, and I am aiming at doing SEO as well. I will be adding about 300 - 500 words before every quiz. Possibly in the future, I will be adding articles and news.

    What I have done
    - Good domain + Hosting = $70
    - Theme = $50
    - Seven quizzes published
    - Created a new account for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest
    - Spent about five hours optimizing my site to load as fast as possible. I am currently uploading my pictures to my server, which I should change because that will eventually slow it down.

    Profit = $-120

    Good Luck bro!
    Idk if you've already tried to apply to adsense or other AD Networks, but 7 quizzes with 300/500 words as introduction are enough to get approved.
    At least I got approved in less than 1 day by adsense.

    Good luck!
    Do you choose a specific niche for quizzes or a general quiz site with quizes about multiple themes?

    Quizzes seem to be popular and are most likely a good niche. I would think the most important thing would be SEO

    Following your journey! If I may ask, how many do you plan to publish daily? Have you had any challenge with this early stage of your journey?

    I've already applied once, I had five quizzes and got denied. So I'm going to do a lot more before I reapply. I don't know how many times you can apply before they say you can't anymore, if that's a thing.

    Just general

    Yeah, I'm going to be focusing on SEO a lot, as well as posting on multiple social media accounts

    Thanks! I'll be focusing on SEO as well as posting on social media

    My goal is to publish at least one a day, I'm in school full time and work full time, so my free time is limited. I've had a couple of challenges getting my theme the way I want it to look, I think I spent at least 10 hours total making everything look good, and making sure everything works. I still have this minor problem that I can't figure out.

    Hey there, I haven't had much time to create some quizzes. I'm currently at 11 now. Here are some stats from the previous week. And SEO is kind of working right now, and of course I will have to be patient for it to really work.
