    I have been a silent reader of this journey section of BHW and always had a wish to create online assets which could give me long term income. According to me having a website is the best way to do so.

    I do full time freelancing selling different services for living. And that is the only source of income I have currently. So this project will be side project for me (as of now). Once I get success with this website, I will create more. So that I don't have to sell my services anymore and don't have to worry about delivery deadline.

    What I have done till now
    Registered a short and memorable domain name.
    Developed the website using wordpress.
    Written 15 posts on the website, all about 500+ words.
    Created a fanpage.

    Current status
    The website gets less than 10 visitors per day.
    The fanpage has 90 likes.
    As per SEMrush, 150+ keywords are ranking on Top 100 (this is the only positive thing)
    I am yet to monetize my website and will only monetize (with adsense) after I get decent traffic continuously.

    Upcoming plans
    Write more articles.
    Grow the fanpage (I am considering it to be my major traffic source apart from Google)
    Outsource the articles once website starts making money.

    Due to work, I may not be able to update regularly, but I will try. And another thing, I will not stop unless I reach my goal (I have seen many failed journey here).
    I will try to reach my goal within December 2017.

    Keep it up. I'd recommend going for 1000 words articles or more. Since you're monetizing with AdSense you'll have to get as much longtail keywords as possible, every visitor counts. :)

    Good luck, Will follow your progress, I had a startup website as well which generates 20-40 visitors daily with 12 articles!
    This could help me motivate myself, and kick my ass to back to the work again, and skyrocket it!!

    Good luck with the journey, did you consider trying to monetize with something else except adsense?

    At the moment I am not monetizing the website. Once I get decent traffic I will use adsense. What other medium do you suggest?

    Try native ads, Content.ad will let low traffic websites sign up. I've been getting about $0.10 cpc for USA desktop traffic and $0.05 cpc for USA Mobile. I don't think they pay well for any other geo though.

    Cheap doesn't mean it's bad. DigitalOcean is 5 USD a month and you can handle a truckload of traffic with it.
