    After reading a lot of tuts and threads and journeys, it inspired me to post my start of a new journey(victories, mistakes and milestones here) Also it keeps me motivating knowing ppl follow and if needed kick your ass if you whine :)

    Ive tried adsense before, made 70 euro's before it was banned because I wanted the easy way and paid for traffic.

    Keep updating if needed to keep ppl updated and to show off my first real earnings whitehat way.

    Start:
    0 100% focus on this blog to make it big and of high value. No crappy info. Everything high value and well written.
    1 Adsense blog+ affiliate links(later). English blog. No dutch blog.
    2 Niche "anime"
    3 White Hat seo
    4 Time to start making decent money 6 months(is my goal for now, if its faster Im happy, if it takes longer thats okay as well, but 6 months is my goal)
    5 I am a anime geek, watch a load cr*p of series and I have seen a lot of anime. Play alot of games if I have the time :)
    6 After 1 year I hope to reach this goal

    So 1 anime niche blog. At least 1 article a week or 1 video. Reviews about the different anime series(both old skool(classic) and new/ up to date anime series). Blogs about anime cosplay and anime based games.
    Generate traffic. Instagram or pinterest or twitter. No linkbuidling, inspired by Matthew Woodward's Zero Linkbuilding Strategy.

    Will put all my time in getting real, active and high value followers. Once Ive got a decent amount of followers who like to read my reviews about anime, cosplay and anime games, and interact with me and the other way around, I will be putting affiliate links.

    Ill keep you guys updated

    Why don't you target little goals for a start? Something like 5$/day then 10$/day. That way you wont get disappointed.

    Why settle for $1,000 ... I say kick it up a notch and aim for $3,000 a day :). Wish you luck bro, AdSense is not what it used to be. I remember when people used to get big money from it but I had a network of nearly 50 sites that basically has the same traffic and the same CTR but the pay that Google offers now is a sad joke. You may want to consider all revenue options if you get the traffic.

    Thnx all, and yes at todor, youre right, I will aim for something small at first. But my goal is to reach that after 1 year or 2? At jeremonster. Yep good thinking. Mindset is important.

    Besides adsense I will affiliate links, maybe apps, those are hot these days.

    So you want to compete with Random Curiosity and the like. =)

    Anime is trending up nowadays though.

    So my site is done(http://anime-kage.com) Thnx to fiverosedude

    Ive made a new Twitter and Pinterest account last week(which is going nicely). So far around 402 Real and active followers and 522 real and active followers on Pinterest after 1 week. Iam planning to make this site a authority the normal, long and hard way. Without black/ greyhat techniques.

    But this just happened: I just get a notice my adsense account is banned. Now this is weird since I havent done anything with it yet. Nor did I make any money with it, not a single cent. The reason was dangerous links... I am known with the adsense rules. Havent broken those. Havent used paid traffic neither...
    I did use a seo service(white hat). I did send a report/ message to adsense, being real polite and honest hoping they would re-instate my adsense account. But in case they wont, what is another good alternative for adsense?

    Im planning to monetize my site, twitter and pinterest once I have a nice/ decent amount of real active followers with affiliate, PPI and ads

    Thnx

    *EDIT*

    Found some good adsense alternatives. I will test a few of them. If they are good Ill post it here + my opinion :)

    Keep on going to 1 K a day

    Another update. Its been only a short while so I havent made any money yet(well thats normal after 15 days since the site is live). I use chikita and info links ads, since Adsense was banned. Well after a while when my site will get more traffic all via white-hat. I will make another account. Chikita and Infolinks are good adsense alternatives but adsense is still the best.

    Social Media Goes well. Its been 15 days since I created a Twitter account and Pinterest account Both have over 1000 real and active followers. So thats going well :)

    Yesterday created a Facebook Fanpage as well

    - I keep on building my audience. Good and quality followers who will keep on re-tweeting, favorite, re-pinning, like and share my tweets, pins, and posts. In my pinion that is the best way for a long time
    - I aim this year(the remaining 6 months) on getting at least 5 K followers and likes :) all real and quality targeted followers.
    - Created an ebook about anime(just need to make the cover and its done)
    - I started making an short online magazine. The ebook+ online magazine are tools to start building my email list(havent done that yet) but I will start soon with it.

    Future goals and tasks:

    - Once I've got at least 5 k followers and likes I start monetizing my social media channels.
    - My site have ads, but no clicks, more traffic= more clicks. So I start building traffic as well outside my social media channels.
    - Once the magazine becomes popular and start getting more readers, I will switch to a membership site. Not much since I will get loads of sign-ups :)
    - Affiliates
    - Twitter? Most methods are outdated. Most ads sites are no longer there. Have to find another way
    - Start making AMV's and monetize them with adsense(also youtube marketing to get lots of organic views and comments)

    I will put most of my time and energy in this site. Most ppl make 10-20 Micro Niche Blogs, autoscrape and respin articles. But I wont do that. Perhaps 1 more site but thats it.

    Anyway 1 year getting traffic, exposure and authority. So that the site becomes popular and known :)

    Goals archieved:
    1 k twitter followers
    1 k Pinterest followers

    Ill keep you guys updated :)

    My advice is to delete your link from your posts, you may never know who reads this thread :), some people are just mean.
