    Very nice to see you have someone supporting you in your ventures and helping you to write articles instead of nagging about
    time on the PC which is so common. Having a creative writer on your side will definitely help out and save you from spending hours
    or money on good English articles.

    Wish you the best Bluehatface!
    John

    Subscribed to this thread. I am about 3 weeks ahead of you on my site, but I am in the same position of you. More of a tight niche, but it can be for everyone - young and old.

    I'll keep updated on your progress and maybe update you on my progress with some ideas if they are working for me.

    Best of luck!

    Thanks for the support!

    Thanks MadStacks. Yeah I'm pretty lucky, but I suppose it's a favour as I'm producing her album when we get the boat fixed!

    Awesome, good luck with your journey. Yeah, feel free to let us know any sneaky tips you find. I'll be posting pretty much everything I do here.

    Update 1 - November

    I meant to do this update at the start of the month, but didn't get round to it! I'll probably just do a monthly update from now on.

    So this month's AdSense was better than the month before. Can't complain with that, I've not really done much on site A.

    I've been working on this new site now for the past few weeks. Mrs BlueHatFace has been busy rewriting some content for the site. We've got around 30 posts on the site, with a few published in the future, and a few reserved for some web 2.0s. I've created a Squidoo lens and a wordpress blog with a single article. Gonna let them settle a bit, edit and add more content before adding my links. I've also created a pretty funky logo for it, and created a wordpress plugin that will edit my titles into title case.

    I've put the SNAP plugin on to auto-post to Facebook and Twitter. I might buy the upgrade at some point to get G+ and Pinterest, although I've been doing Pinterest manually. When we have about 50 live articles, we'll go back though them all, and start cross linking relevant posts together, and maybe dotting around a couple of Amazon links. The posts have just literally been thrown up to get some content, and to look like there's some proper activity on the site.

    I've not put any monetisation onto the site yet as there's no traffic. I've been looking into getting a few real Facebook likes and twitter followers for the site. I think I've decided on my Facebook likes ($8 for 500 likes, just to get the ball rolling), and am waiting for the PM back with details how to pay. Not really looked at Twitter followers services yet.

    I've also just bought ScrapeBox - I'm going to have a play at some ranking and banking and various other goodies!!

    Thanks guys - a little motivation goes a long way!

    Update 3.5 - Mid January

    Just wrote a shitload of stuff here and my phone had a paddy and lost my long, detailed post. (I'm at the library and using my phone internet as the WiFi here blocks BHW as it's a 'hacking' site. lol)

    Summary...

    • Posted a Reddit post - got ~2000 upvotes and ~6000 UVs to my undeveloped site. Quickly whipped AdSense up and made a few quid before the mods deleted it (unfairly IMO). Unfortunately that was the only post I had that matched that subreddit. I'm either going to have to write another, or maybe just re-post it?
    • Pinned all my posts to pinterest boards - boards have same same as category on website - got an immediate re-pin (no idea how to get more)

    Glad to see you're still making an effort man. You have something that works, why not up scale that instead of trying new ideas?
