    Just building a website alone,there are so many topics involved in the development of website.
    Graphics design,HTML,CSS,flash.
    PHP,Database management-mysql,webhosting,ajax.

    Having do IM for so long,I tried so many things at one go,but seriously nothing works.I seriously want to know how do you all manage your independent learning of all these successful.

    Even for books and eBooks there are just way too many.I will be reading about one topic at a moment,and jumping to yet another a moment,without doing nothing in the end.

    For example:
    When I am doing my programming of website just by hand coding in notepad.In another moment,i found a great IDE that has great toolkits such and syntax highlighting,refactoring,and makes my HTML coding more efficient.Then I will start to do certain things like looking for yet better IDE and good shortcuts etc,slowly my mind will already start to wander from my goals already,
    I felt my emotions changes immediately.

    It is so not unlike schools,where they will prepare you will the resources that you need,they develop plans and timeline to prepare you for exams and projects.
    Even university where they encourage independent learning,they will still plan out all the things nicely for you.

    For the past one year,I only made $250 online,I am feeling kind of dismotivated already.

    How can I make all the daily,weekly and monthly planning all work out for me.

    first...start using wordpress and then u dont have to worry about hand coding a site...then u need to decide what aspect of IM u are gonna attack...are u gonna be a marketer or a programmer or a service provider? Once u figure that out...then u will at least know what information to gather...and have an idea of where u should be heading

    I agree everything but the wordpress site i use drupal but for someone who just needs a site and wants to learn fast wordpress does get the job done no doubt about it. Im new to BHW yet have been marketing online for 5+ years mostly part time still part time but this is really all I do now.

    If you want to start making good money I recommend having a product or service that you can sell to consumers in a niche, write your little heart out will all the current news about anything closely related to your topic. Look through BHW for tools that will get your article, blogpost, etc indexed quickly.Rinse repeat

    These steps will get users to your site and as long as its current events, trends, etc. the main point it that it is NEW CONTENT there will be no way you dont make money. If you do this correctly and given you have a good enough profit margin you will make some real money and not become one of those people who say "yea IM i tried that once didn't work out"

    People like you will always gets distracted. You gain an enormous knowledge of web technologies that is for sure. You will become a css, htm, flash, graphic design, etc. guru. and then what?

    And there will be other never knowing those stuff but making money like crazy just setting up simple wordpress sites but knowing what makes money.

    It is comparing like a university prof. trying to make a car (who does not know that "car" is invented and everybody using it) to an ordinary guy going at full speed in a ferrari.

    for designing your website, start with either wordpress i begin learning with one then i learned shopping carts - cubecart, interspire, then they were right, choose either you want to provide a service or you'll sell a product. focus with one until it comes to fruition. what works for others will work for you and improve it to make it unique, the answers are just in there, you just have to look for it.

    Yes, Wordpress is easy and efficient, but it sounds like your problem is "focus".

    I have the same problem, so here's just a suggestion of something I might do.

    There are so many things to do and not enough time to do them all. If possible, you should try to create tasks for yourself in 10-15 minute increments. This way, you'll eventually get through what you are trying to accomplish, and won't have to focus too long on anything which is where you eventually get distracted and abandon your goal.

    If something comes along that you may want to try or do, just keep a separate list. Write down the other activity, to remember it for later, after, you have finished your current task. Then, when you attack the other activities on your list, remember to break them down into small acheivable tasks.

    Welcome back. Glad to know you're giving change to this once again.

    Start anywhere. Focus on one thing until it works. The learning curve is already steep. By trying everything you increase it exponentially.

    Why dont you try some paid traffic and invest the money you previously earned. Also youtube and CPA should be a good method to get some money for testing out various methods too.
