    In the past month I`ve read many things on these forums and learned quite a few things.
    I want to start my own blog in the life style niche. This is my plan:
    1.Find a nice and clean theme for this niche( allready have the host and domain but I need a free theme, any ideas?)
    2.Write unique articles that are around 1000 words and at least 5 pictures.
    3.Make summaries of these articles on 2 blogger pages and 1 hubpage account and link those summaries to my original articles.
    4. Share, share and share again. I joined around 10 big niche oriented groups on facebook. Targeting a total of 50.000 people. I`l also share my articles on Pinterest. I have around 200 followers now but I will try to get more, also I`ll share my articles on Stumble upon.
    5.Rinse and repeat.

    The keywords I`m targeting have around 50k searches a month and pay for 1 dollar per click. If I get 10 clicks on my ads a day I`ll be happy for a start ^_^. It will prove my idea .

    I don`t really know anything about SEO or internet marketing but I want to start something using Adsense ^_^... Well, this is my newbie plan, do you have any ideas on how I can improve it? Things I should add? Thank you for reading this and for your time, cheers!

    I would give you some "advices" to not use a free theme. Use a premium theme; you can get many premium themes for free on this forum and all over the internet.

    You have prepared nice plan for your blog site. But i would like to say that you should also do SEO for your blog site and create natural high PR links to your blog site. After a long period you will get the result of SEO. In short, SEO is less expensive than Adsense.

    Good Luck mate...! :)

    Solid work VijaRobert,
    Advise?
    I think what the guys said and not forgetting SEO.

    -Make sure your using your keywords in your title and webpage name.
    -Make full use of the Header Tags <H1><H2><H3>.
    -Only use <H1> once in your article.
    -Bold and Italic important words.
    -Have your keyword placed in the first paragraph and the last paragraph of your article.

    Google just released the new "SEO starter guide". I suggest you search for and read this. It offers extremely important SEO topics that everyone should get familiar with.

    I think your plan is good and should work pretty well for you. Best of luck to you!
    I would also suggest mixing things up with some shorter posts every once in a while. From personal experience I can say that the 300-700 word posts seem to be giving me the best results and the largest amounts of traffic. It also limits me and encourages eloquence and "straight to the point"ness.

    Your plan looks like nice and solid, you covered almost all point.
    But can you explain what you are going to write in life style niche.
    I think going for SEO would do best for you.

    i would keep the content between 300-500 words unless you are writing something that necessitates more.

    My first advice will be choose right kind of keywords first, most of the people failed in this criteria.

    Lower your expectations, you are not going to get paid 1$ per click from adsense. more like 10-30 cents probably if you have a good niche. If you have a bad niche, 2-10 cents. Adwords cpc is how much google gets paid for displaying ads on their search engine, it's something different than adsense.

    First of all create an action plan and then work hard on it. Even consistency is really essential to get good outcome.
