    Hey guys, I have been browsing BHW for a while now and I decided to make my own journey thread. My first journey with this is, is to get a blog that has a good deal of followers on it. Then I have to figure out from there what to do with it (Open to suggestions). This is what I have right now currently for resources

    1. Domain with WP with almost same name as tumblr blog
    2. Tumblr blog with 1691 followers
    3. Adsense on my tumblr blog

    I also have Facebook/Twitter account for my website/tumblr also but I haven't had much luck pushing relatable niche traffic to either.

    Every day I will report how many followers/Notes I have gained around 4-6pm in the past 24 hours.
    I could also post my adsense earnings also but as of now they are really negligible

    Hope you guys enjoy!

    I blog 4 photos related to my niche every day that I grab from other websites and then reblog 6 photos related to my niche. Each of these I put backlinks to my blog in the description and for the original ones, in the image itself. Im setting it up to queue the 10 images at the end of every night. So it can automate itself the next day.

    How did you get 800+ notes from 1700 followers? How many blogs do you have? If you only have one, I suggest that you get more, because tumblr may ban you. Good luck. I will follow your journey.

    Why would tumblr ban me? I am not using PPI/PPD/Affiliate Marketing at all so I wouldn't think I would be banned. I get a lot of notes since I am one of the big content "creators" for my niche. I also had a tactically timed post earlier this month which got me 36k notes total over about 10 days.

    Forgot to report for yesterday. Reporting today
    1/21/15
    Followers gained today: 55 (1851)
    Notes: 440

    Kind of a mediocre day for notes but I am still gaining a lot of followers each day. Hoping for more growth tomorrow!

    You should go with more blogs not a single one. (Don't put all eggs in one basket)

    You should connect your tumblr blog with your other channels and post content to them also. You can easily automate this with IFTTT.

    And you should post more content to your blog, try to get to the maximum 50 posts per day (PicLoadr should do the job if you don't have money for bot). Also follow other blogs related to your niche and like other people's posts... 200 blogs to follow daily and 1000 likes daily maximum.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Isn't the 50 posts/200 follows/1000 likes a risky strategy? Also wouldn't most of the followbacks be crappy?

    I get the exaggeration but unless my growth slows down, it will still be less than a year to get 20k followers. I am considering doing a second blog that is more automated. Growing a page pretty legitimately seems cool. The original point of this journey isn't to make money.

    I've always had only nsfw blogs and they grow like crazy. Guys just love them some naked girls and follow everything indiscriminately. Just recently I'm trying to grow some sfw blog but getting followers in sfw niche is soooo slow process. Real pain in the ass. I'll be following you for the motivation and some tips, good luck man!

    How do you get photos and stuff? Do you just scrape them off other websites? Or do you find a specific person to produce pictures?

    I just scrape them off other tumblr blogs. As I said, the guys in nsfw niche are pretty undemanding, as long as you post naked girls they're fine :)

    I am not sure about this yet, I do have a website but it has been a bit hard to push traffic towards it. I have sort of an artsy niche so I may need to reorganize my entire website (Its reviews). More worrying about that when I get more followers

    Yeah my blog is sfw, the growth did originally start slow but now that I push content out on a regular basis related to my niche I have been getting a lot of targeted followers!


    No I actually don't, It usually takes about 30 minutes to manually do out what I need to do anyways. I don't produce a huge volume of posts every day.
