    Hi Everyone.I just crossed 500 Posts on BHW and glad to say,What a journey it was!

    I will try to reveal everything what I was,what I am and hopefully,what I will be.

    Life on internet BEFORE joining BHW

    I first got internet on my mobile in summer of 2010.I love the gadgets and always love to read about them.So,the only reason I first got internet was to just read gadget news.But,after a week or two,got tired of it.

    "how to earn money on internet"

    After getting tired,I just searched on Google "how to earn money on internet" and many results poped up showing Get-Rich soon guides.And lol I got amazed that I will be millionaire soon.But guides required to invest money and I was 17 then and had no money to invest (Thank God).

    And then came the game changer !

    So,I just left that and moved on but kept searching for new techniques.Then I heard PTC sites and again I was amazed that I will earn 4 cents a day.WoW !

    So,I started registering on as many PTCs as I can all on my Great(lol) Nokia phone which had a great Resistive touch screen and typing needed some luck.I registered on about 10-15 sites and started clicking ads daily and earning about 20-40 cents daily.At that time,I even didn't knew are they going to really pay me and what the heck Scam sites are.But,the only thing I had in mind was,I will Earn Money and that's what needed to really earn money.

    Then I searched reviews of all PTC sites and then came to know what are scam sites and soon discovered most of them on which I was clicking ads were scam.

    Shocked!But I still had 2 sites which were trusted.Neobux and Onbux.I started to click on them regularly and started renting referrals.Onbux had a great average for referrals and so just went renting at Onbux only.Few months later,I had earned enough to Upgrade my membership.And I upgraded to Golden at Onbux and my earnings doubled and started earning more.
    After a month or so,I was earning 7$ a day by spending 20 minutes a day! COOL ! I started earning and reinvesting the money.The never withdrawn a penny into my bank account and the only thing I purchased was a domain and hosting at Hostgator.

    Then the best thing happened to me in my Life.Onbux became a Scam and my earned money gone with only around 30$ in my PayPal.This paved my way in joining BHW.

    I again started searching google on how to earn money and websites was the way.Made some searches for website and frequently results had BHW links.Then reached limit for viewing thread at BHW for the day.And then,I signed up at BHW !

    Life on internet AFTER joining BHW

    When I joined BHW,I didn't had much of money.To be fair,one of the only reason to join BHW was the Download Section(Newbie Alert) !I spent my first month just downloading tools and I rarely used them.I even started a thread on BHW,"how to earn quick money".Then,I came to a thread which said offer services on free sites like WF,etc. to earn some money.

    So,I started my first service thread at WF with SENukeX trial.And OMG,I earned 443$ with trial of SENukeX !

    [My monthly Earnings screenshot from PayPal]

    Along with that,came the fiverr revolution.I had already posted thread at BHW regarding my fiverr earnings http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo/352456-earned-700-fiverr-2-months.html.

    Then I invested a bit in getting Donor Status and rest in creating some sites for myself.I was hugely influenced by Micro Niche Sites and created couple of sites.Then I thought of providing it as a service and started my first BST thread which just skyrocketed my earnings.

    Below are the screenshots of my earnings from various sources in month of August,September,October and November.

    The Future

    I really love Micro Niche Sites and that's what I am going to do.I will look to setup atleast 50 Micro Niche Sites by the end of 2012 (that's my New Year Resolution and that's what fears me most lol).

    The advantage which I currently have is I am still a teenager and have no burden of earning money.So,I am still able to test few things without expecting any money out of it.

    What I learnt ?

    During the entire journey,the basic thing I have learnt is Start is always small and it needs lots of lots of efforts to get started.But once you get past through it,it's a cake walk.Also,you will fail several times(like I did) before you strike that golden egg.

    So the only suggestion I would make is never stop trying and never stop searching Google/BHW.

    So far,my journey was great.I Started from 0.01$ a day and once achieved the feat of 1000$ a day.

    I would like to thank BHW and everyone who is part of this wonderful community which helped me having such a wonderful year not only in earnings but also in knowledge which I acquired during the course.

    Last but not the least, Happy New Year !

    The screenshot reveals funds in my PayPal achieved by offering various services.

    It doesn't includes AdSense earnings as they cannot be withdrawn to PayPal

    Although I don't own any Apple products. Hit me up with anything related to upcoming iPad 3 and iPhone 5 and TAT comes the reply. :cool:

    But seriously those PTC days were a nightmare.

    Awesome story man! I had to give you some REP because it's inspiring even to someone like me who's been here for a while and into Internet Marketing.

    For all the newbies out there the very first step is getting out there and trying something. Just look at Stonecold who started giving services at WF with a TRIAL of SENuke X.

    Money online is possible, but contrary to popular belief it does involve work. Good luck on your online journey man. If you can make this much before you're 20 imagine how much you can make for the rest of your life :)

    Yeah.Some work is really important.The mistake some people make is just keep on reading and putting very little in practice.
