After being inspired by Zen's journal and by the book 'Think and Grow Rich', I decided that I would make my list of goals and actions public. I'm going to keep the journal action oriented and update it on a regular basis. I do have a little experience in both computer science and graphic design, which should both come in handy in meeting my goals. Goal My definite goal is $100,000 by July 31st, 2010. I picked that date because it's my 22nd birthday. I also have a second goal of reaching $1,000 by the end of the month (16 days left), which should give me a good start. What I've done I first got here towards the end of last month and decided to try out ewhoring. I ended up making $40 on my first day, but didn't like doing it at all. It just wasn't for me, so I decided that I would move on to something else that I actually like doing. What I'm doing Yesterday I built a page that uses a content gateway to block some of the content. I'm not going to go in to much detail about it, but it's whitehat for the most part. I've started promoting the site using some social networks and have made a grand total of $36 in what has been less than 24 hours. Unfortunately, I spent $37 dollars of a $100 facebook advertising coupon to get that $36. However, after doing some reading, I probably should have promoted a group instead of page. I'll use the rest of the advertising coupon on a group tonight and see if that helps at all. Hopefully the group will go viral. The good news is that a lot of the traffic was free from other social networks, which I'm still receiving traffic from. After checking my visitor stats and my earnings, I'm making $0.06 from each visitor. I guess that's not too bad, but it does kind of weed out using an Adword's PPC campaign on the site, which I was banking on since the site isn't really something I can get SE traffic from. Future Actions I do have some more plans in mind, like a few more gateway sites and maybe pushing my own Clickbank products, but I'll list those in the journal as I get to them. The most important part though is that I'm willing to and am taking action in getting my goals done. So, yeah. I'm going to push the site some more tonight with Facebook and with other social networks. I'll update the journal and let you know how that goes.
