    Hello Everybody!

    This journey prolly gonna suck but it will surely help me to be consistent and who knows what will happen in the end. Im totally new to IM so long way to go. Working 11 hours each day and other obligations surely don't help so this journey is gonna be SLOW. But steady. Nobody can take away my dream that im gonna be free one day.

    My poison of choice is affiliate markeing since that seems to be the most straightforward atm. Was thinking about Fiverr but aint nobody got time for that. Any suggestions throughout are appreciated!

    Today i am going to choose a domain, a host and research a niche to start with.

    Everyone have a nice day.

    So i've done what i planned to do so far. Picked Hostmetro for hosting, because renewal prices are always the same, seems much cheaper in comparison to for example GoDaddy or HostGator. Bought a domaing on Namecheap. One thing that buggs me though, you can't transfer the site for 60 days after purchase, so idk how that affects SEO. Next goal would be to properly research keywords to the niche and put up one main article or hire someone to do it.

    Total cost so far: 70 dollars (hosting+ domain)
    Total income : 0 dollars

    ->wheewilly yeah for 1 year.

    Ordered a quality article, but it didn't really satisfy me. Wasn't too deeply resarched plus the writing stye wasn't professional at all. Guess i'll have to write my own articles. Already went for a main article, but god, never thought writing is so hard.

    Good luck with your journey, having real life commitments is really going to hurt the speed, but if it gets done eventually, it doesnt matter.

    Best advice I can offer : stop what your doing and create a blueprint first i.e before you walk down a road, walk down in your mind first.See here you want to get to,before you do it,then cost everything. Finally before you start ,look at what it,ll cost,what it will profit then start, most import have fun with it, if your not enjoying it don,t do it.

    Good luck whether you rise or fall it,s all experience

    Yeah it's very hard with 11 hours/day job. Last day i couldn't really do anything, fell asleep right when i got home.

    True, im thinking of rather doing adsense, since my niche is all about expensive products, visitors wouldn't buy much.

    Anyways i have a main article, although it's only 1000 words long, so i will have to expand it. This is on the main static page. Also wrote two 500 word review articles. I'm trying to make this whole thing sound like i am an expert at the area while the complete opposite is the truth.

    God i hate waking up so early.

    So... after I got into finding web 2.0's i realised there is no really good tool for finding one. Programs like Scrapebox, GScraper or DHG only check for 404, which is misleading most of the time. So I decided to build a web 2.0 finder myself, that is what I have been doing in my free time(not much) past weeks. Kinda harder than I thought, but on the way.

    Will also continue on my site too , however it seems to be a bad niche pick
