    Hello all!
    This is my journey to $20/day.

    I have wery little experience with IM, have only earned +/- 150$ ower past months.

    Method I will use is very simple, I use Tumblr to get trafic to my site, in which I will put ads. (it is a bit twisted Lordsenf method)

    I decided to post journey to help track my progress and it would be great to get some advice from other members :)
    I started this method in 22nd January. I hope to reach 20$ a day by end of april.

    Affiliates I use:
    Plugrush
    (I will add other affiliate networks later in my journey)

    Tools:
    Tumblr retribution bot
    Tumblripper

    As you can see I have already bought tumblr bot to help me atomatize things.

    What I have done:
    Created 13 tumblr accounts (300+ followers) (all are created on semi dedicated proxies)
    Created a website with plugrush ads.

    My tumblr accounts are about 1 week old, one post from one blog got wiral in first day(40 notes, I guess its Viral for one day old acc)
    ( I checked tags what I used for that pic, but still other images get only like 5notes max with same tags. )

    After that things havn't gone so smoothly.
    1) Cant figure out why I am getting followers so slow. (maybe its because I use SFW niche, I will try to create some NSFW blogs this weekend)
    2) I get only like 20 UV per day to my money site. (I gess I need to put links more often in captions and clicktroughts, also today downloaded picture watermarking programm, watermarked a lot of picss and uploaded to tumbblr, will see if this helps)
    3) My WP site loading time isnt the greatest one, tried to optimize it, but it didnt get any faster, Tried to add EWWWW image optimizer plugin (or smth like that, dont remember the exact name :D ) but it dont works, shows me that host has blocked exec(.) , guess i have write to support to my host.

    This weekend will try to create more blogs, and experiment with setings, and will see if my earnings will grow.

    Well, thees are my earnings for now. Atleast they are not on 0 :D

    I will try to update this journey every day. (Sry for my grammar if there is mistakes, its because I am not native speaker)
    Feel free to ask questions, will try to answer them.

    Hello OP, I've got some experience in tumblr+plugrush and can give you some tips.

    1. Why are you getting followers slowly? - Have you followed/reposted any other blogs/posts? If not, do it, because blogs with 0 follows are ghosted and not visible to others. Secondly, it really helps out if you follow/repost others on a daily basis, that makes your blog look like a real deal and attracts more people.
    2. For faster WP site loading I used "WP Super Cache" plugin which made huge difference for loading speed, also people recommend to use "Cloudflare"(look for it in your hosting control panel) for the same reason.

    Wish you success on your journey, keep up the hard work and everything is possible.

    what exactly you do? so you post some nice niche-related pix to your blog with plugrush ads and promote those pics(with links to your blog) with your tumblr accs to your followers?

    I post niche related pictures in tumblr blogs, to some of pictures I add caption and clicktrought with link to my money site, in witch I have put plugrush ads and popunders. For every opened popunder and click on add I get paid from plugrush.
    Tumblr in this scheme is traffic source for my money site.

    16 Tumblr accounts. (+/- 500 followers)

    Today I spend a lot of time completly reorganizing my site. Registered exo account, and added their banners and some widgets to my site.
    + added many articles + pictures
    Created 3 tumblr blogs, uploaded 200+ watermarked pictures to queue to thees blogs.
    I hope tomorrow I will be able to spend time to create more accounts. Today created only 3 because website reorganization took a lot of time.

    Tumblr can be ban happy. Just remember to use clean accounts and do not spam, and you should go under the radar.

    UPDATE: 03.02
    Earnings: 0.0032$

    UPDATE: 04.02
    Earnings: 0.05$

    21 Tumblr accounts. (+/- 900 followers)

    In the same time as I am updating tumblr accounts, I am partialy doing clickbank stuff what I used to do before I started this journey, looks like it was more sucsesfull to me than this.
    Anyway I am trying to keep this alive. Reacently changed all blog names to more relative names to niche. Maybe this helped me to boost earnings to 5 cents a day, damn thats so damn low anyway :D
    My money site now are receaving about 100 hits per day.

    op you can use imacros script to record & then massfollow blogs of other people, most of them will follow you back & then you get more followers... but they are usually not niche targeted..
    I have gained much followers in that way... but I still don't understand how to monetarize my tumblr with ppc ;S
    I have added adsense to it, but still I am not sure if I am allowed to put adsense to tumblr & what will get me banned...
