    About Me:

    I have been trying to think of ways to make it since joining this forum in the summer of 2011 but hit a burnout after trying to take in too much info and stopped a few months later. Then just into the new year I became bored and logged in to BHW to see if I could make some money this time. Then I stumbled upon a way to earn some small change through posting into forums. Ok the work was kinda hard and got boring after a while but unlike last time, I stuck at it, and within a couple of hours I had made my first $5 :) and instantly became hooked...

    I went on to do this everyday for a week and made $5 everyday. I could of earned more if I had more time, but having a full time job and kid to look after meant I only had an hour or two a day. I wrote out the method that I used and started a thread on here (noob making $5 a day) and noobs like myself have already started earning money from it, search my name and you should find the thread...(not sure if i can post the link here??)

    Now I have got a bit of money together I am going to start a journal of what I do each day to try and make more money. Hopefully this will help other people out, plus I enjoyed writing the last one and made some good friends through it as well...


    Day 1

    I carried on with my forum posts and reached 100 points in order to withdraw $5
    Ref: http://www.postloop.com/invite/chrisceo
    Non Ref: postloop . com

    I loaded up tweetatacks and started to follow people on the twitter accounts that I have, 4 accounts each with over 500 followers

    I singed up to a link shortening service that pays you money everytime someone clicks on your link. They don't pay much but if you have for instance a lot of twitter followers clicking on the links, then it soon shoots up.

    I signed into my old twitterfeed account and looked for RSS feeds related to my twitter pages. Then programmed them to feed into my twitter accounts, but with the links shortened through using the adfly account I had set up.

    I must say that some of the methods above I had read from workoutsforteens thread 'Making Easy Money. Great for Noobs' so thank you to him :)

    I've a site through wordpress on a domain I had bought a while back that has been standing there doing nothing. I am offering people simple one page web design in which I will try to sell them web hosting through my hostgator affiliate account.

    To advertise my site, I have been looking at the local website to where I live and looking at companies that advertise, taking their email and sending them a message about having a website made etc. I have sent about 50 emails so far.

    Fiverr gigs, I have about 7 gigs going on at the minute. I placed a gig about writing unique 400 word articles and got my first order which was accepted :)

    Signed up to a cashback service and posted 2 free ads and completed 2 surveys

    Non Ref: topcashback .co. uk

    I also have adsense on a couple of old domains I made, but they don't really make much at the minute..

    My Stats:

    Forum Posting: $5
    Adfly: $0.061000 (32 clicks)
    Adsense: $0
    Fiverr: $4 (pending)
    CashBack: £4.93 (pending UK)

    Below are the stats I had before today....

    forum posting: $70
    Adfly: $0
    Adsense: $12
    Fiverr: $0
    CashBack: £0

    If anyone thinks I am doing something wrong or has any advice for me then please share. I will update this thread as much as possible so bear with me

    I am also looking into buying scrapebox with my earnings and a micro niche site. Until then I am busy reading BHW lol :)

    good luck man. I've got about the same amount of free time as you (for the same reasons it seems). There is a high chance to burn out in that situation... but just keep at it and use every small success to keep the motivation going. I almost lost that motivation last week, but thankfully I've been starting to find my groove and its keeping me going strong.

    That's a great start. How many hours do you spend on your ventures everyday?

    Cheers mate :) It is easy to give up, but if you do then you are never gonna make any money online. Good luck to you also

    I have had two sites for about a year now and thats all they have made me. Not really done much to them in the past few months. But will try and start adding to the sites

    It all depends really, yesterday was my day off so I was online for most of the day setting things up. Otherwise I spend about 2 hours online a day through the week and about 5 hours at the weekends.
