    Hello,
    I am CashFTW and this is my journey to making my first 1000 dollars online.
    About a half a year ago I made a journey with the same goal. But I gave up because I was and still am lazy.
    This time I have the same goal but this time I am going to reach this goal. I dont think it is a great idea for me to claim that I am going to take massive action and stuff like that because well I might take massive action for the first week or two but then give up. I am planning to work at least 30 minutes every day. It sounds like nothing but that is what I am going to EVERY DAY. I am probably going to work more than 30 minutes every day, but this is the time amount I will work even when I am lazy.

    I will post a to do list for the next day here every day. I actually have four goals .
    1) Make 1000 dollars online in 2016.
    2) Listen to 365 podcasts in 2016.
    3) Read 100 books in 2016.
    4) Learn HTML/CSS and Python.
    Every day I will post an update on how I am doing with those goals.

    How I am going to make money online
    I have chosen amethod that I will try http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...9-method-making-50-day-youtube-step-step.html
    I also earn some money on instaGC.
    I also want to set up a micro niche site and apply for Adsense.


    To do list for 19 January 2016
    1) Figure out the layout for my journey(what info I am sharing, what color is text painted in)
    2) Learn HTML/CSS for 2 pomodoros on Codecademy
    3) Do instaGC tasks.
    4) Find 50 youtubers who to contact with ( the method I am trying)
    5) Write sales speech for contacting those youtubers.
    6)Learn about Micro Niche Sites
    After all this is done I can go play video games for 2 hours.


    So yeah, I hope 2016 is going to be a successful year!

    Sounds like a solid plan. About the 1000$, it's not even hard, you would need to earn less than 3 USD per day and you'll earn that amount in 2016. Anyway, good luck!

    While I appreciate your starting a journey, I am concerned you will fail yet again. Nothing in your post expresses any motivation or determination, both of which are critical to your success. It's almost as if you've read too many "get rich quick" schemes and are convinced your 30 minute a day minimum will suffice. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it will not. This is some serious work to get started and you need to have the determination to put in the work. If you don't put forth more effort than that, in a year you would probably not even become proficient with HTML and CSS. I wish you luck but, with a reasonable amount of certainty, I will save everyone the suspense and predict this thread is abandoned within 3 weeks. I hope you prove me wrong.

    Hey guys,
    today I didn't do everything on the to-do list because I was lazy and didn't plan my time.
    Today I did:


    2) Learn HTML/CSS for 2 pomodoros on Codecademy
    3) Do instaGC tasks.
    4) Find 15 youtubers who to contact with ( the method I am trying)

    6)Learn about Micro Niche Sites

    So yeah. I didn't write the sales speech and I also didn't figure out the layout for my journey and found only 15 youtubers.
    I am not really good at sales so I might outsource it or learn how to write a sales speech. I don't have any ideas for the layout so far. I don't think I need to spend time on it.
    About only finding 15 youtubers:I was lazy. So tommorow I have to find 35 youtubers.

    Earnings:
    Today:$1.05

    Yesterday:

    This week: $1.05

    MTD:$1.05

    All-Time:$1.05

    Today I cashed out $1.05 from instaGC. It is not a lot but it is the first dollar of this journey:


    To-do list for 20 January 2016

    1) Find 35 youtubers who to contact with
    2)Find what I'm going to advertise
    3)Do instaGC tasks
    4)Do 1 pomodoro on codecademy
    5) Do everything on this list

    There is less things on the list than yesterday but I also have a goal to do everything on the list.

    Good that you are starting even though I have the same point as keadams26.
    Don't you think 30min a day is too little?

    Whats up!
    So you told me that 30 minutes a day minimum is too small.
    And I thought about it and I agree with you that 30 minutes a day is too little. So I guess I will raise the minimum to 90 minutes a day. This will force me to be more effective with my time because I go to school and don't have the whole day to do IM stuff. So 90 minutes a day is my minimum from Monday to Friday and on the weekends I try to work more.

    Anyway, let's talk about the method I am trying. Today I found 35 youtubers to contact with and choose the product I am going to market. Well, the product isn't a product. I am actually going to market
    G2A Goldmine. I get 60% of the youtubers earnings(Youtuber still gets his full earnings.).

    Whad I did today:

    1) Find 35 youtubers who to contact with
    2)Find what I'm going to advertise
    3)Do instaGC tasks
    4)Do 1 pomodoro on codecademy
    5) Do everything on this list

    Today I did everything on the list.

    To-do list for 21 January 2016:
    1)Do instaGC tasks
    2)Do 1 pomodoro on codecademy
    3)Start making the sales pitch
    4)Create a new youtube account
    5)Message 10 youtubers(testing the sales pitch)
    6)Learn about micro niche sites
    7)Listen to 2 podcasts.
    8)Do everything on the list


    Earnings:
    Today:

    Yesterday:$1.05

    This week: $1.05

    MTD:$1.05

    All-Time:$1.05

    Didn't make any money today.

    7)Listen to 2 podcasts.
    8)Do everything on the list

    I didnt create a new youtube account because an account with video and history is more trusted.
    I will make a list of questions about micro niche sites and then try to find answers to them.

    Hey guys, whats up!

    I have decidecd that the only thing I will focus towards on this journey is the method I am currently doing. Do I really need to learn to program? Do I want to make an app? NO.
    DO I NEED TO LISTEN TO 2 PODCASTS A DAY?NO.
    Do I need to chase those 10 cents a day on instaGC? NO.
    Do I need to learn about micro niche sites? In the future, currently I have to do the method I am doing ! Focus only on one thing! If I put so much small and pointless tasks on the list then I basically want to feel that I have done something today. But this called the fake accomplishment feeling or something like that. I am going to set a goal to send my offer to 1000 youtubers. If I haven't made a simple dime on G2A after sending offer to 1000 youtubers then lets try the next method.
    LETS DO IT!

    To do for tommorow:
    Send offer to 100 youtubers!

    I found out that planning EVERYTHING isn't the way to go, cause you're always gonna have to delay it and do changes.

    Anyways, nice journey so far.

    Sorry for not updating.
    I have decided to try a new method: micro niche sites.
    Today I ordered a keyword.
    Also going to try to update this at least once a week.

    I am quitting this journey. That doesn't mean I am giving up my goal to make 1000 bucks, just I am not going to share my progress publicly.

    Hey guys,
    I am back.
    I will just post stats for my Instagram accounts here and maybe ask for advice sometimes. I am not doing SEO anymore. I hated it.
    I now am building instagram accounts. I am using massplanner instagram edition.
    Currently I have 3 instagram accounts.
    Account 1: Followers 995 Following 998
    Account 2: followers 513 following 1065
    account 3: followers 810 following 2439

    I am planning to make more accounts in the future.
    Current goal is 10K followers on each account. Should take about 3 months. Current massplanner settings are follow 34 and 55 people after a time amount between 27 and 34 minutes has passed. Also, I follow between 509 and 648 users a day. I follow for 12 hours day: from 12pm to 11.59pm
    I like between 5 and 12 posts after a time amount of 11 and 21 minutes. I like from 400 to 600 post a day. I like for 12 hours day: from 12pm to 11.59pm.
    If you can recommend anything to improve, please do.
