I hope this may be something meaningful for some friends here. I have got a VA taking care of my blogs. She really works hard. Two months ago, while working on my blogs, she asked me if I can help her. She had a blog and an adsense account. Her earnings were $10 up to now from adsense (for maybe several months). I said YES and started to help her. We first decided on the niche that she liked to write about. Then we bought domain and hosting. We installed wordpress. She easily setup the plugins that I had been using on my blogs. And she started to write. Unique 700-800 words articles (2 a day). She did what i said like a command. We created a super themed beauty blog for her (beauty, can u guess how hard that niche is?) Incredibly, she started to make keyword research 10 times better than me . Combining lots of sources, examining results. She looked for amazon, best products, yahoo answers, google suggest, google keyword tool, ehow, article sites. And always compared the results she got and decided on the things she would write about. Guess what? We put adsense on her blog 4 days ago. Now she is doing $10/day. It is just a 30-40 day old blog. I am really again surprised to see that how working hard (and of course knowing what you are doing) can make your dreams come true. I am so sure that, she will make $100/day in 3-4 months from that blog. Everything (especially stats, numbers imply that). So friends, take action, work hard. But before that, always build a good infrastructure that you can play on in a safe way.
