    Hello everyone. I am a random person on the internet. The internet is full of money and even if you hit it like a pinata it just doesn't come out!

    So I decided to make this journal to chronicle my progression as I go from dreaming about being successful to not ever logging back on and playing video games instead.

    So here is the game plan. I am going to take some generic method and do very little of it today. Tomorrow I will plan to do most of it but will most likely not get around to it. Four days later I will log back in saying I had something come up and that NOW I am going to do it. You will not hear from me again.

    Okay joking aside, can we stop making journal posts? I remember a thread in the past asking if they should be separated from the Making Money section, and it seems like it is getting much worse these days.

    A few tips to those thinking about making a journal.

    Don't make a journal thread if:
    -You are making the thread to 'keep you motivated', it won't help
    -You have some vague idea of what you want to do, or little knowledge on what you actually do want to do
    -You have yet to be successful in anything self-driven that you have done in the past

    People planning things they have no intention on committing to is so commonplace that you expect it more so than someone doing what they say they will. This goes double for the internet.

    A few things to consider before starting a project:
    -Does the actual project excite me? Monetary motivation alone doesn't carry you through a project. If you hate what you are doing you won't finish it.
    -Are there going to be any major roadblocks? Most likely no. But if you procrastinate at some point because of something tiny, it can make you lose momentum that you never pick back up. Do things now, not later.
    -Do I know WTF I am doing? I know it's new and you will learn along the way, but at least get some idea.

    Ranting aside don't start a journal because you think it will help you. Do start one if you know you'll succeed and are simply keeping one to help others. Or if you want to build authority. This does not mean fake confidence, it means you've succeeded with past endeavors and know you'll either succeed or fall flat on your face, but not quit.

    Good luck with your journey bro! How do you plan to monetize this part?

    Ah maybe I wasn't clear about the monetizing. While playing PS3 I am hoping to come upon loose change in my sofa.

    Agreed, and that's what we were voting on back when there was a mod's thread about the subject (probably still around). I think it is growing more and more needed to cut the clutter. Maybe if a good, successful journal is written and can be learned from then have a mod move it here? But seeing like 5+ journals on the first page of posts in making money is an eyesore. Not that journals are they only bad ones or anything, but it's a start.
