    So in about a week I will have been here for 2 months! Should I celebrate by purchasing "Donator" status and i'll be eligible for Jr.VIP orrrrr should I just wait it out?

    Keep in mind that I:
    1) Am still yet to make my first $$$ in IM
    2) Have a pretty small budget
    3) Am still in the process of learning SEO/IM

    Although I:
    1) Love this forum
    2) Want Jr.VIP
    3) Want to support this place as much as it has supported me

    Decisions, decisions..

    I would suggest you put that $97 into a business of some sort which you implement all the things you learned here.

    Start making some micro niche sites and maybe buy some services for it. You could also buy a few tools.
    Domains, hosting, you name it!

    But get some field experience before donating ;)

    You do know that if you invest in a couple of days you will be a Premium member, not a Jr VIP?

    Oh lookie here, it's the tough guy who's dad apparently could beat BTB's dad.

    in my opinion, you should wait and focus on IM.

    If you want to contribute to the forum without paying then you could do it by helping other members out.

    Would rather use that money and invest it on a method (that's currently making me money) for the purpose of scaling it.

    Yes, I am some what aware of how the forum works. Working on getting 100 posts so I am then eligible to post some of my services. Never been big on posting in forums.. But have tried to assist others in my industry as well as trying to keep conversation going, in hopes of making the forum a better place.

    I think the general consensus is to wait until I have a steady income.

    Just so you guys know, I do have a lot of posts; but no time goes wasted in reading... I've got some projects running and I have seen big improvements. I like to think i've come a decent way in 53 days considering 54 days ago I had only heard of SEO from those scumbags GoDaddy where you pay $12/month for god knows what reason.
