    Hi BHW!

    New member popping in to say hello. I'm not new to IM, but I still consider myself a noob.

    A little bit about myself - I first dipped my toes in IM in 2011 when I created a Wordpress website focusing on video games. I know video games is a pretty saturated topic, but it was something that I was interested in and I also wanted to learn HTML and web design. I knew from the start that I wanted to eventually monetize the website to pay for my web hosting and domain registration fees. It was slow at first, but I managed to make a bit of money. Unfortunately, the website stopped making money and I also lost interest in maintaining the website because it was a lot of work. Nothing was automated; I did all the promo (spamming :eek:) and creating content and graphics myself...

    I'm looking to give IM another shot and would like to be able to make enough money to quit my daytime job and do this full time. I like to think of myself as a creative individual, but I often procrastinate which is my down fall. I'm still working on that. Anyway, there is a wealth of information on this forum and I already have a couple ideas brewing in my head.

    May 2017 be a prosperous and fruitful year for us all!

    Hey procrastinator. Fellow procrastinator here.

    To (try) and keep myself on track I bought a daily planner a few weeks ago. I try and write down some tasks for the upcoming week or two and try and get myself focused on doing something everyday. It's helping to procrastinate less.

    There is SO MUCH information out here that sometimes my head spins. What I thought made sense last week has been blown apart this week. Write. It. Down. You will see your progress as you begin to connect the dots.
