    I Have been a member for awhile coming back here when the time in my right seems to be right for IM, I have not made much autopilot money although I have made an ok amount creating websites that generate leads and then turning those leads into jobs for my profession.

    A few months ago my wife became hospitalized for a about 6 weeks unexpectedly causing me to shut down the business and sell off my machinery to make rent. My wife and I are getting by now by flipping stuff we get on Craigslist for free and selling them for 60-300 bucks.

    We are getting by barely but basically always broke and short on rent now. My buddy just got a job making 180 bucks a day and I am very inclined to join him to make some real money but afraid my wife's health will deteriorate if I leave her alone with the kids again (we have 3 and she is very pregnant!)


    This new job offer is making me jumpstart my IM since I really need the money and really feel conflicted if it will be a help for the family or a hurt in the long run.

    I realize the chances of this journey making money as soon as I need it too are slim but im going to try and have this project generating income by October when my rental agreement is up.

    Ok now you know who I am and why I am here, On to the start of the journey, I have been researching this for a few days and I have mostly settled on Hostinger for my hosting services and likely namesilo for registration, My bank account is currently negative so hosting and registration will have to wait for a few days until I can get the funds together.

    Last night in an effort to feel like I am doing something productive I started a new email using protonmail which seems awesome if you need a mail provider and also started a wordpress.com site in my niche and posted an article. I may end up using these articles on my main site and deleting this site down the road or I may end up keeping it going to use as link juice.

    I need to decide if I will get one year of hosting for about 20 bucks or 4 years for around 38. If I stick with this the 4 year is likely the better option but with money being so tight now I wonder if I should do the 1 year and bust ass... if the project is successful then I should prob spend less now due to the time value of money and my lack of the green stuff right now.

    I will attempt to do 1-2 updates per week during the early part of this Journey

    I think you should take up the 180 a day job offer, and save up some money, then invest it online.
    Don't want to sound like a douche, but I think it will be the best case scenario to secure financial stability for you and your family, and I feel like you won't get far in the Internet Marketing world without good starting capital.
    I do feel your concern when it comes to your wife and kids, really though spot you are in right now.

    I appreciate it man ! I think you may be right on that being the best case scenario and I may end up going that route. My buddy just started the job yesterday so I will wait until he has been at it a week to make sure its a legit offer before I seriously consider it but It would certainly help a lot more with my immediate cash concerns! If my wifes health was more stable I would take the job in a heartbeat but alas ... who knew adult decisions could be so damn difficult.

    Become a sperm donor, they pay like $10 per cup.

    Otherwise get a real job.

    Hope that helps. Good day sir.

    Today I finished the first article I started last night on my wordpress.com site and created another article and then linked my first article to my second one.

    I have more time in the evenings to work on IM but I had a little time this morning and created what should actually be very helpful content if the right people find it ..

    My goal for the rest of the day is to get some pictures of stuff I need to sale up on craigslist and help the kids and wife have a great day ! Had another bill come through and get rejected leaving me a generous 25.00 rejection fee added on top of the electricity bill so thats always nice :) my income is going in the wrong direction but hopefully I make a sale and secure a domain name this week.

    My slightly insane brother wants to stake me in a poker game on wednesday so if he follows through with that I might be able to use that money to secure hosting/domain.

    I will update if I am able to come up with the cash to start the actual site for the journey in the mean time I will keep putting effort into creating content for this wordpress site, Im still not sure if I will end up using this content on my main site once I register it or not.

    Hey pal, Amazon prime days are coming. Make an affiliate account on amazon and get some sale. You can use social traffics(like facebook, reddit, twitter, etc). Afaik the traffics for such deals are crazy during such season.

    I finished up the second post (for the most part) on wordpress and started a quorora account and posted a few answers with my web 2.0 linked from one such answer, never used that platform before and thought I would try it out to see if I could get a gbot spider to come crawl my page. In the past I have dropped a comment on a local weather related blog I know where you can link a website in comment and stuff gets indexed in a day or two but always good to try out new stuff.

    I was hoping I might be able to get some traffic but based on the questions I answered I will never see any traffic from them.

    My goal is to keep creating content daily on this wordpress.com account until I get a site up and then decide weather do migrate it all over to new site and rewrite some for web 2.0 or just write new articles for the eventual money site.

    I plan to monetize with adwords once I start getting some regular traffic to the currently non existent money site :) .

    I will update again when a third article is complete or if big G finds my new blog

    Update: I have completed the second article and went ahead and through a comment down on the blog I use to use to get stuff indexed since big G has not indexed my web 2.0 yet, Im still a little light on content for big G to index with two short articles but we will see. I will update when next article is posted or when BIG G notices my website, If I secure funds to get the Domain/registrar I will update as well :)

    Total Articles -3 (all on a web 2.0 property)

    Today I set up my Namesilo account in anticipation of fundage coming in and published another article on my wordpress ,site, I also got my first visitor to the site from the comment I placed on a local weather blog hoping to get it index.

    I have been back and forth on trying to build a giant website or zeroing in on a particular area of expertise. Im tempted to make a broader site since it would be easier to make content with so many topics but I am leaning towards a specific smaller site which I could use down the road to help a larger site get ranked and hopefully It would be easier to get a steady income on the smaller niche,

    I will update next time I post an article or I notice Big G found me.

    If I go for the narrower niche I will definantly keep all the current articles on the web 2.0 property and just use it for some link juice when I start up my main project .

    Total Articles 4.5 (4 published with one draft half done.) Im going to try and increase the writing frequency a bit and start saving some in drafts for the inevitable delay where I wont have as much time it would be nice to have a few articles I could easily release.

    Im thinking about setting up a fiver for writing services and then promoting it via facebook groups to attempt to double dip with their affiliate program. I think 20 bucks for everyone who signs up who is new. Not sure how hard it would be to get going but there are certainly some people there who have found success and it would prob be a small time commitment to start up. this is not really related to the first project just a way to keep some cash flowing to prevent me taking a full time job in the short term which would likely derail this project again and I would really like to stick through with it this time.

    I will update again when I have a total of 8 articles written or if big G notices my wordpress site.

    I normally save these fancy grahics for the articles I write but when I saw the journey of the 14 year old kid I realized how terrible mine must be to read, Here is a little sweetner since you got this far in the journey :) seriously thanks for following along

    [​IMG]

    Im almost sure the above image wont post correctly hah

    edit : I was right, your only reward is plain small text :)

    I also decided to make a twitter account for this wordpress site since it could play well in that arena I think and Im also impatient for google to notice me

    Focus your energy in becoming stable before fucking with internet marketing. You’ve got a big family that needs stability before you chase income online man. Making money online is difficult even with a bankroll let alone trying to generate from scratch with limited seed money and unlimited stress of feeding 4 kids. Just my 2c.

    Yea Stability is the Goal for sure. For my wifes health I need to be available .... a lot. More than I really can be with most jobs. When our rent contract is up in a few months we will hopefully be moving somewhere that is much closer to some viable night work I could pick up for quicker stability.... until then trying to fill the down time of this crazy time in my life with something productive!

    I don't mean to be rude, but you're trying to feed your family with a fresh web 2.0 blog and don't even know how to embed an image in the forum here.

    Listen to the others and what was previously posted: Get a real job and stop wasting your time.

    You're not going to make any real money with your current approach.

    I dont mean to be rude but If you cant bother to read the Entire thread then STFU with your quit IM suggestions. For those that are just joining us, Most regular jobs dont work for me and my situation. Looking for all helpful pointers not snarky bullshit.

    Total articles (8) 4 up and 4 in draft mode. Big G is still oblivious to my website but visitors are starting to trickle in . Ive had 3 visitors so far and one of them threw a like up on a post.

    Im irritated that google has not crawled my wordpress site yet although surprised that people have found it already which are contradicting feelings haha.

    I also set up a Fiverr gig today to see if I can get some people to pay for some article writing so I will let yall know how that goes, I was going to poke around at joining some facebook groups and promoting the fiver and and maybe other gigs that make sense to see if I can get paid through the affiliate program.

    This is still all on the wordpress site as I was expecting a check early this week that has not come so I will just keep plugging away on this site until I can move ahead with the main site for this project.

    Down the road if the metrics suck with this site I will move all the content over to a an actual site and it will be my first "PBN" property

    I will update this again when I have something that excites me. I am thinking I may start writing for my main niche site so when I do get the funds to get it set up I will have some content ready to go.

    Stay Classy BHW

    Ok This Journey is about to Heat up! The money that was late getting here has finally arrived. It being late actually ate up almost half off the check in late fees so Ill still be on a shoestring budget but I should be able to get hosting taken care of by Monday or so!

    I got really exciting as I was doing some KW research for the domain name/articles I will be writing since I know so much about this niche. I believe the traffic will be very valuable and there are a lot of search times to work with for article ideas. I am thinking I will try and do some long articles for the keywords I believe will be the most valuable and then write a bunch of related similar articles for all the easier search terms that relate to the long article. I am hoping that with such a varied but related number of keywords hitting these articles they will gain good traction in the serps. I also will try to create the best damn info on the internet for many of these pages.

    Google has still not found my web 2.0 but it has had about 3 visitors per day the last few days. I will continue to release one article to it per day the next couple of days and add some more internal linking with the articles written as well as some pictures on my last 4 articles which are currently words only but I will be shifting my focus over to planning/executing on the main site.

    Today I told my wife I think the best course for our family is trying to eek out an existence the next few months while I try to get this site generating income and she is onboard. I know she is a little skeptical of the earning potential but she has seen some wild financial swings as my wife and knows first hand how fast money can come and go :). Last time was more akin to winning the lottery and Im excited to create something sustainable this time.

    Im going to try hard to have the niche site up by the end of the month with the main article mostly done and the structure planned with articles drafted for the first layer of articles. I was originally planning on only advertising with adsense which is fantastic for this niche (or was 5 years ago) but I realized during keyword research that some of my pages will be perfect for amazon affiliate as well so once I start getting traffic I will look into those two forms of monotizing.

    Im going to keep an open mind about the process and be willing to change until I find what works focusing on some sort of progress daily.

    New Goal - Revenue by August 31 on the site that is non existent.

    I will try and refrain from updating until the site is live or if big G indexes my Wordpress Or If i complete my anchor article for niche site ! ( I find I always want to update on here so if I set limits of when I am able to update it helps me focus on actually getting work done instead of wasting time.)
