    For some time I have been lurking this section of BHW and now I want to take action and start my own journey. Because I'm a newbie I setted a objective of 5$ a day.

    I have already selected my nich and created a tumblr blog where I have done some onsite SEO optimization and added some social media share features. Instead of having several tumblr blogs I would like to first try with just one blog to focus on what is working for my nich and what isn't.

    I have already created a Python program to help my manage my blog, it allows me to post images with pre defined comments into the queue and reblogge other people posts.

    I will try to update this as often as possible.

    Please let me know your input on my journey.

    At this moment I'm not sure. From what I have seen from other Tumblr journeys people use several methods (comment links, adds on thumblr page, images lincking to other websites) I will try one by one to see what works best for my blog but would like to hear your input (and everyone else) about that :)

    How did you get that much followers? I'm in a $5/day journey as well! Doing $0~2/day as of right now. Hope we both reach the goal soon! What is your strategy in gaining followers?

    I had already started the account 2 days before, forgot to mention that. I'm now with 143 followers in total.

    What was done:
    - Reblogging posts from blogs from the same nich as mine with a least 200 notes
    - Follow about 200 people day that have liked the posts i reblogged
    - Post 6 pictures a day from with a related caption
    - Unfollow people if they have not followed me back in 1 week

    All this taks are being done by a python bot that is being run on a cron job.

    What needs to be done:
    - I'm still struggling with a way to monetize my tumblr, I'm going to search for a answer in previous tumblr journeys. Do you guys have any sugestion?

    - I will create about 10 twitter accounts to advertise my blog, first I will start with 3 accounts to test how things work out.

    Current Status:
    Followers: 143

    I am following this thread. Have just begun to look into this myself.

    Are you producing any content yourself?
    Are you working with an Adult rated tumblr?

    I try to creat 50% of the content and reblog the other 50% now that the website is starting and I'm using the reblog to attract people to my blog. I just use the python bots to automate the repetitive and time consuming tasks (scrapping images, publishing them, etc...) everything else is done by me, for example creating the comments for the images.

    My tumblr is not related to adult content, it's movie related. I think that adult tumblrs are a over saturated nich.
