"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet success unexpected in common hours." -Henry David Thoreau, Walden Hello BlackHatWorld! For now has come the time to start my internet marketing journey. Now like many before me I have failed to make the first step and for that reason I failed to make any money. But this time I have decided to make that first step and challenge myself as I have before with many other goals in my life. There were many feats accomplished before this journey such as, becoming a Gladiator in WoW; or by becoming an athlete on the track with great finesse. I can get lazy like everyone else but when I want to accomplish something I pour all my energy into and right now this is something I would like to master. But how can I master such a thing like internet marketing? well I would say I can't. I will be trying to master one method at a time, but it might be difficult knowing that my enemy is Google. I will not fall to such a great enemy, but I will make it work for me to make sure I am number one. With my skills at my side I will become a threat. "The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways." -Robert Greene GOAL $10 USD/Day by 2-28-2014 How will I achieve this goal? By using the Youtube/PPD method. How will succeed where others have failed? I have been compiling a list of threads that have used this same method, and have been studying them to see where they failed to earn their goal. I was bathed in the river of Proxy by my mother, thus making me invulnerable to being shunned by the god Google. But my mother was not able to fully bless my body, as my static IP had been held by her. I will make sure that my static IP be protected in battle by using the water of Proxy to fend off the wary Google.By learning from the mistakes of my fellow brothers I will push on in this great war.

Many of us fall victim to losing track of time while on the computer or tend to lose focus. I myself like to use the Pomodoro Technique because I've noticed it helps me focus longer on the task if I feel like being timed. The time I get for my break is usually used for restroom, getting refreshments, and juggling. UPDATING: Money in/out Video output Amount of time used to write update Goals for Tomorrow (Day 1): Finish keyword research Work on graphics for niche Create 1 video Nothing too crazy on my first day due to the fact I know I will have other things I have to do for other people. I plan on keeping this journey updated multiple times throughout the week and want to reach my goal no matter what. I know I will catch hate for trying this method and get comments like: "I wouldn't dare using Youtube to make money" "I tried this method it doesn't work anymore" "Youtube is broken" "There is no money in this" my response,"That's why no one will remember your name".
