    I'm a lazy guy that fails in my life. I first get to know about BHW since Sept 2011, I didn't take any action at all. I find myself reading throughout here consistently, and get myself flooded by all the various products and techniques that is recommended here, but....

    I had been giving excuses to myself that i doesn't have the money to invest in tools.
    Or that the techniques recommended here don't work..
    Or that i doesn't have the required skills and knowledge to be involve in BH or IM.
    Or that Panda / Penguin is hitting BH, and probably Google will come up with Elephant, or Tiger in near future, and BH won't work.
    I realize that the reason why no action had been done by myself for the past 2 years is probably because of pure laziness.

    I had been reading success stories about others here, people had been earning TONS of money for the past 2 years, and I began to blame myself...
    why didn't i try to take any action and see whether if it works?
    Am i going to carry on with my life as a failure?

    Enough is enough, today 18th May 2013 marks a new day for me.

    I'm going to track my progress here regularly in order to remind myself, that the only route to success is through constant effort and work..
    Even though i do not have the resources, nor IM / BH knowledge and skills, i want to make a change in my life...

    Day 1 - 18th May 2013

    Actions
    My first day into the IM world, and i probably take the most action today.
    * Research a Niche
    * Bought New Domain and Hosting for 3 years (i know an aged domain works better, but cost is a factor for me here)
    * Set up a Wordpress Blog with a nulled template
    * Wrote 1 * 500 words unique article + 1 * 300 product review
    * Set up necessary Social Accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube)
    * Linked up all Social Accounts, Google Adsense and amazon affiliate to blog.
    * Posted About Page, Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions, 1 article, 1 product review to blog

    Cost - $80 for hosting and Domain for 3 years
    Earnings - $0

    Net - -$80

    I'm do not have prior experience to website setup, and account linking (through developer of the social apps), but i feel good after estimated 18 hours of work today. I just hope to pray hard that earnings comes in soon.

    Best of luck with your journey. You have taken the most important step- that is taking action. 90 % of people fail simply because they never try.

    Laziness is a hard habit to change so I'm gonna say in 2 months you will have given up and I only make this negative remark to give you the drive to prove me wrong.

    Thank you all! Wow, i'm so touched to receive such attention even though i'm not contributing.. LOL

    Ermz, all the more we should learn from the professionals here, best not to join me when it's my first time into BH IM

    Anyway, here goes day 2!
    It's a Sunday, and i'm into the mood of shopping. Since i had taken action, why not invest in something that would help me in my 1st adventure into the BH world.
    As the old sayings goes, it takes money to make money, and although i'm poor and in debts to the bank, i still have a few credits with the bank...
    I guess this is the last straw, do or die.. :(

    Proxies is probably important in BH, i got myself 10 private proxies from squidproxies with the discount offered to the BH members here. First time getting proxies, and i tested the proxies against Squidproxies Proxy manager program. 6 out of 10 timed out, not sure whether if its normal, but i wrote a mail to them, pending reply. 18$

    Next, i realize that captcha is important to BH, i know that i possibly couldn't afford to pay for deathbycaptcha or equivalent services. I therefore got myself a Captcha Sniper, that is probably well known here to solve captcha for free! :) 77$

    I know i needed article content generator with a real BH SEO tool to really start off. After hours of research, i cross my fingers and made purchase on Wicked Article Creator. Initially, i'm stuck between WAC and SEO Content machine. Price is possibly one factor that why i choose WAC in the end, but i'm applauded that the creator had been in close communication with its user in BHW here. I know there that is no perfect program out there in the market. After-sales service is as important.. :) 42$

    Last of all, i got myself Clyde SE demon. Probably not here in the items for sale yet, its a new program, and i know i cant afford senuke at this stage, i should give this program a try. who knows, maybe it will work out to be one of the best alternatives here! 88$

    After hours of research and shopping, i know that i can't stop developing my website. All these programs can wait.
    Actions i done today...

    * Wrote 3 * 500 unique articles + 1 * 200 product review article
    * Posted 1 * unique article + 1 * 200 product review to money site
    * Applied for wordai trial, spin 2 * 500 unique articles
    * create 10 * web 2.0
    * Posted 2 * 500 spun articles to each of the 10 * web 2.0, linking to $ sites
    * Bought 10 * squidproxies - $18
    * Bought Sniper Captcha - $77
    * Bought WAC - $42
    * Bought SE Demon - $88

    Total Cost - $305 for hosting and Domain for 3 years
    Earnings - $0

    Net - -$305

    ok, i know when my credit card bills come in, i will probably have to face the music then.....

    Day 3 - Monday aka Working Day
    Doesn't have much time after work, i can't believe that up to now, i haven't even start to play with my BH tools.. :(
    Well, that's because my site haven't got indexed by Google on 3rd day, this is starting to worry me. I know that the first milestone that i need to achieve is definitely getting known to the world first!

    Being a noob, i search around and had done the below actions that i presume will help..

    * Build xml site map
    * Registered under Google and Bing, and submitted site map
    * Register site for Google Analytics
    * wrote 2 * 500 article, and 2 * 200 product review, and posted all into my website
    * did nothing to link building today

    Net - -$305 still... Maybe i will take "medical leave" so that i can start the BH techniques by tomorrow..

    Day 4
    Tough learning BH SEO tools for a noob like me... Took nearly the whole day just to figure out what are the functionality of CatchaSniper, SE Demon and Wicked Article Creator..

    This is tougher then i thought.. still not used to it, and didnt really focus anything on white hat today either.. :(
    Good news is that my site got indexed by Google.. (Not Bing yet though, which i'm quite surprise.)
    But since majority of the traffic comes from Google, i think i will just move on..

    Writing probably a bitch.. i decided to buy a couple of articles, just to see how people wrote post Panda / Penguin..

    I still have the habit of stuffing keywords into my articles.. >.<

    Day 4 ended. with no action done to the $ site.. haiz. i must buck up my efforts before i get demoralize..
