    The answer can be anything! Be honest Guys !!

    The first money I ever made from Internet was from YouTube, I used own an account where I uploaded videos about tv show spoilers, news and etc (of course copyrighted :p)but after around 6-8 months I believe the account got suspended as you can expect! I moved onto Adsense site soon after in the same niche and started summarizing articles instead of copying.

    What's your story guys? Please be honest!

    my first $4 (IM) was from Fiverr, and it got refunded because the buyer was a douche.

    I though will earn more money online when using Adsense.

    Than i created a small website for job posting in 2009, creating website alone look little long time. Finally i Placed the adsens code, and started promoting website on Nov 2009, I have worked nearly 8 months for getting my first adsense money($100) in online.

    classified ad posting (gumtree) + dating offers (aff) ~8 years ago, i was making around $20-30/day from literally day 1

    however i think it's a lot more interesting how i started out (at least for me lol): i was downloading my daily porn intake from a rapidshare folder, when i noticed an ebook among the videos, i gave it a read, i took action and on the very first day i made $20, then when i saw that there's money to be made on the internet, i found my new "hobby", one day i got tired of replying to emails (i was never actually looking at dicks thank god, i copied the email addresses using the source of the gmail page and i was replying en mass), i was searching for an autoresponder and that's how a found BHW, actually a year before i registered

    so my IM journey is a mere accident :)

    First money I ever made online came from my first affiliate site that promoted The Truth About Abs - made ~$25 from memory. Seems ages ago now, lol.

    I sold a "How to Make Money with Squidoo" eBook that I downloaded HERE for FREE for $5 on Fiverr.

    I was able to sell around 16 copies before orders stopped coming in. So that's not too bad.

    I also worked like a slave for one Content service provider here in BHW, paid me $1.5 for 500 words. Pretty ridiculous. But I was an IM virgin back then, I quit after writing 10 articles, getting paid a grand total of $15. Damn.

    But I learned SO MUCH from those 2 experiences, that's for sure.

    Pretty inspiring journeys guys. It's kinda funny when u look back how u started this all out and how far you have reached now.. I'm pretty sure we all started as noobs, so a guide for noobs would be don't lose your hope and always stay motivated towards your goal.
