    Well, I've been on this website for quite a while and I actually started doing some IM for about a month back in november and ended up making about $150 (which I still haven't gotten because it's stuck in CB) but I stopped because I was disgusted with my poor performance. Anyway, my therapist has suggested that I start trying to take risks to try and start overcoming all the abuse and neglect I suffered as a little kid and I figured that trying to do IM again would be a good choice to try and get a little self confidence and not be so terrified of taking risks. Not to mention it could end up bringing in some money. To be honest, I'm terrified of even trying and feel sick to my stomach because the only thoughts going through my head are me failing miserably but I figured maybe having a thread that I update will try and keep me doing things because I always quit everything because I "know" that I'm going to fail so I say what's the point.

    Anyway, I don't plan on doing anything blackhat because I'm terrified of getting banned or being confronted by a network so I'm going to keep this stuff totally whitehat and (hopefully) something that can provide a residual income stream. I've been reading almost everything on this website for months and months. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do to start, I was thinking about working on building a linkwheel but I might do something with ************** and things like topgear episodes/anime/ etc and getting traffic from youtube. Lucky for me I don't have problems with keyword research or any of the idea and research things, I just don't have any confidence to put them into action so once I start going and see success I'm hoping I'll lose some of my massive anxiety and maybe even be able to go outside and meet people and have a date! Wish me luck, I need it.:D

    I feel for you, I don't have a disorder like you (that's the way it sounds, assuming your therapy), but 99% of the time I'll go through the "Making Money" section, and read for weeks and weeks, not implementing anything. I always find some flaw in a method, which hinders my ability to even try to do it. I wonder if I could make a business in that, pointing out the flaws in Black Hat Methods?

    Depending on your age, looking for a date might not be the best money making idea there is, how old are you, if you don't mind me asking?

    Dude I was taking ativan or some shit like that for anxiety, I still got anxiety,every time its acting up,I work out...I will literally go downstairs and run a mile and then some curls until im so tired its gone! And its seriously doing my body better and my anxiety goes away which gives me control over it! I also smoke alot of green which helps too :)

    Dude I love anime hence the name :)

    Go for it if your passionate about it...you'lll think yourself later you did!

    When I have anxiety, I just get away from whatever is causing it (unless it's unavoidable, like an upcoming test).

    Alrighty, so today I spent about 4 or 5 hours doing keyword research. I managed to find ~60 keywords with search volumes of between 500-2000/mo with exact match pages of below 50k. The 60 keywords are for two different niches so that I can start working on them. I did notice as well that squidoo is preventing a bunch of different niches from being posted on the website and one of them happened to be one of the ones I was planning on so I'll either have to forget about that was one of the web 2.0 pages or work on the other one first. More tomorrow.
