    self-improvement is a very big niche and also what would be your monetization strategy?

    My current plan is to funnel each article to a resource page in which I will share my reviews of programs/products that helped me improve my life.

    BuildMoreLinks is right about it being a big niche, so do you have a target audience in mind (e.g., Self-improvement for disabled veterans)?

    Good luck on your journey!

    thank you guys, I have been rethinking / redesigning my site, so I haven't been following my schedule. I feel this is necessary because my target audience was too vague. (Thanks BuildMoreLinks and Zwielicht) Currently, my plan is to target people with a debilitating invisible illness and give them my experience and advice.

    I have written 2 articles since last update, I also found a promising way to make (passive) extra money through Fiverr, so I will also be spending a little time on that.

    I also had my website reviewed on critique, in which I got 4 stars or above, so I must be doing something right :p

    next few days I will focus on writing an article a day and Fiverr gig promotion.

    Thanks again to the guys telling me to target my audience, it really helped me out.
