    Reason for this question is I am Considering going back to school, took my stab at php; HTML is relatively easier. I just don't want it to deviate to far from iming.
    Currently I lurk on bhw and find myself spreading myself all over and make most my living on auction sites. I am graphically inclined so I do tshirts, embroidered goods and sell items I get at storage auctions.

    Storage auctions are great for finding e-b-ay, cl, swapmeet items! Buy with ur eyes, if u don't see double the retail price in it don't bid, don't purchase units with beds, furniture or anything else heavy, and it's nothing like u see in the tv shows, lotta of walking and lotta of garbage units!

    Lotta of work and iming to me is all about busting your butt so u can reap some sort of passive income. No stanger to hard work as I owned my own premiums company for 10 years and am ex military.

    Just seems that the income I made from iming is way to sporadic and part of it is I guess because of bouncing all over the place.

    Btw if any newbie is out there (not that i am not a newbie) article writing is tough as hell but it will get u through the storm, problem is you get burnt out quick. My trick is I record my article on my iPhone and then transcribe in dragon, then I edit. Makes it a lil longer but easier when staring at that blank screen!

    And e-b-ay is a pain in the butt, listing, selling, packing, complaints and all etc...although in some storage units I managed to find some good gems, not to deviate from my question is fellow black batters what class, course etc do u think I should pursue?

    Also if any soflo black hatters want to meet up let me know!

    Btw bhw forever!

    I make and sell micro niche sites and sell backlinks. School courses will never teach you black hat or trendy IM staffs. You gotta learn it your way.

    Hey OP, are you on Storage Wars? :D

    Seriousely tho, I make my bread ranking on google/bing/yahoo and the bread is tastin' fresh.

    I am now working to diversify. I was so close to jumping into the adsense boat but after looking at all these "goolge cancelled my account", I don't think its really worth the hassle meaning you work your ass off publishing articles to get to 5k and BAM its gone the next day. Right now I am trying out CPA and Clickbank. Then I want to try social media with facebook and twitter.

    Speaking of Adsense. If you abide by the rules you have nothing to fear. Many people on this forum make a good living with it.

    Those here complaining of loosing there income with Adsense are the ones that didn't adhere to the Terms and Conditions.

    No matter what you do - good Customer Service is number one priority. My main income is from physical products selling online, CPA is number two.

    Most of my marketability comes from being able to debug and do coding (php mostly)

    I'm a biology teacher by day, but at night I write articles for textbroker and a few other sites. Most of that money goes into out sourcing link building and other aspects of website development, since I suck at it.

    I only started writing for textbroker over the summer, and currently have very little time for it, or my website development. Full time job and family kills most of my free time (in a good way of course, at least as far as my family is concerned).

    If I knew then what I know now.. I wouldn't have either of my college degrees.

    I have a 9-5 and a 9-2... 9am-5pm full time (about 50k a year) and I do my IM and my design business from 9pm - 2am..

    Hustle all the time. I wouldn't go back to school. Why learn php or HTML? I know just a little to be dangerous and edit templates for wordpress.

    If you're looking to do websites, learn wordpress and joomla.

    My main income is ...... nothing. :) I am still learning. I am trying to develop some micro niche sites and currently failing at autoblogs. I am also starting to look into CPA.
