    Hello! I'm new to IM, have made a whooping $0.00 from it! I figured I would make a journey thread.

    This is a short term goal, and I plan to achieve it fairly quickly. I will post what I've done each day and the goals for the next day. I will keep track of profits/expenses till I reach a week where I make $350, when I will start a new journey thread with a greater goal.

    I am going to start with Amazon Affiliate + eBooks on a website I am building on one of my favorite topics, being healthy. The website will have articles on preparation of foods, articles on different foods and whole food supplements. I will also have articles on replacing common household items with their more natural counterpart.

    Thanks! I figured the best way to do it is to just jump in, then at least I will have some experience instead of being here in 8 months wondering why I haven't taken any action

    Quick question... Is there any reason I should not post the website I am working on? Seems like lots of people conceal theirs but wouldn't it be better if everyone could critique my work directly?

    revealing your site in public may have negative impact on your serps and other such things, so it is better not to share it

    Day 1:

    Worked on website layout. Created Youtube/facebook page. I also applied for amazon affiliate program. Didn't get the ebook written... As I'm not sure on the topic yet.

    For wordpress, do I want to have my articles in blog form or page form? Still not sure on that one yet. I guess I could have a page linking to all my blog posts so it is easy to find (remember I'm doing health/wellness.. So I want people to easily find a specific food item or topic). Any input on this is appreciated.

    I also learned a little bit of php today. Going to learn a little more each day

    Time for day two :D

    Day 6 (June 6th, 2013): Nearly finished free report, which is a checklist of small changes you can make for abundant health. I recorded some videos of me talking on health topics, which I use for ideas for articles. It is time for me to start building quality, original content, as I know I have read around here a lot, "content is king."

    Day 7 (June 7th, 2013): Didn't get anything done. It seems like I keep making excuses to not do it, like I'm afraid to succeed lol... I just gotta jump off the edge and do something, I know it will be easier once I get experience but that first step seems the hardest

    Thanks guys, I won't let you down!

    I am a little slow to start but.. I am persistant as hell. I have a goal in my mind what I want to get done today. Time to start pumping out some articles.. What is the worst that can happen?

    The main reason for my procrastination was I was confused on the purpose of my website. For now I'm just going to limit it to eating healthy.

    Day 8: More research on topic. I might have picked the wrong niche, as it is hard to be an expert in this one.

    Day 9: Got thesis theme for free, but it is kinda sketchy (has link to random website in footer)

    I might just buy the real one once some income starts rolling in. I got an article done today

    Day 12 (June 12, 2013): Worked on article and website. Still determining if I want to buy a premium theme or not. Sorry guys for the slow journey, I reapplied for amazon affiliate. Once I start seeing money coming I'm sure I'll be faster to work!
