Hello everyone, I'm openagain, 24 from Hong Kong and currently working full time. I usually have a lot of free time after work and want to start making some income on the side and hopefully turn this into a full time job if i'm banking it. I've been on BHW long enough, doing NOTHING. I have literally not done anything, merely looking at threads and salivating at how other people make a few hundred bucks a month. I've made a few adsense sites here and there making maybe $1-2 a day but usually lost motivation after a few days. The reason I want to start this journey is to keep motivation and track my progress so that hopefully by mid 2015 I can have a decent income of ~$1000/month. That's my target. I wouldn't call myself an expert, but I've been reading pretty much everything on BHW for a few years so I do know basic SEO, backlinking etc. My biggest downfall is working on too many projects at once, distracting me from focusing on one project and losing motivation really quickly. The other thing is I HATE writing articles but at the same time I don't want to put an investment into writers when I could do it myself.. Kind of what has been stopping me from doing anything for so long. As such, I want this journey to help me stay on track and have a timeline in mind. (I work much better when I set goals) My first target is to update this thread weekly and focus on a SINGLE project. Project 1 will likely, no not likely... WILL BE a niche website monetized through Adsense. I hope to have the basics up and running by the end of the week including on-site SEO. Target: 17/November/2014 to have first niche site up and running with ~5 articles. Ultimately I want to sell my websites once they reach a stable income but for now, my main focus will be: Keyword Research. The tools that I will be using are simple. Wordpress Addons and maybe some backlinking tools that I found in Member's downloads section which someone paid a good amount of money for (god knows if those even work). I hope some of you lacking motivation to start can join in together and hopefully make some moolah together. As the first step of Keyword Research I will mostly be using keyword planner in addition to some smart googling to find out if the competition is significant. From what I understand, keyword research is the most important part in getting started. For my first website I also want to do it on something I enjoy so writing the damn articles won't be so boring. Anyways, I will update this thread in due time on my progress.
