Like most I think making a journey thread will keep me motivated to reach my goals. I am also looking forward to the advice that seems to come along with a journey thread. Last week I started a product review site for children's toys. I am getting near 100 unique visitors a day right now. I am using amazon and will be adding adsense to the blog today. I am using this blog as a trial and error learning experience because I expand into other ideas I have. One of my ideas require capital of which I do not have and they both require experience of which I do not have. Goals: Short-term: Earn $50 by December 8th. Extended short term: Make $50 a day Long-term: Be able to pay my bills by making money online upon graduation in May. Right now I am using google alerts to drive traffic to my site but want to go into social media. I am just unsure of exactly which social media vehicle is for me. I am hoping to have a decision on that by the end of the day. *I realize I had a typo in the title. I tried to change it but I guess you can't.
