The Ultimate Goal

Every internet marketer has an ultimate goal in mind when they first start making money online. Once they realize their original goal was too hard to achieve they have either given up or had to start from square one. Luckily, I found success in another rather profitable niche and have composed a majority of my income to date on that single general niche. After nearly two years of earning money blogging (March 1st marks the two year anniversary for me where I started making $2-3 dollars per day off the bat), I feel I have developed a few of the things that will help me reach what I have always deemed to be my ultimate goal. Here are some of the things I have acquired over the last two years that are pretty much invaluable to my past and future success as an internet marketer.

First of all, the knowledge of basically everything in general has been the greatest asset to me. Once you learn it, it’s just a matter of applying it. I think my dedication to the idea of making money online has helped me do what was most profitable to me. I started reading about blogging 5 months before I actually started this blog, and the only blog I had started before this was one I had simply started for fun on WordPress.com (freely created blogs that allow practically no advertising). By following some of the greatest and learning from them I was able to learn the basics to turn that blog I was using purely for fun into a popular site getting 1,000+ views a day for a while! The knowledge will be with you forever and can be used over and over again. If you want to make money online, it is vital that you learn how to blog and search engine optimization at some point. You can’t pay for these processes every time you want to start a new site in a new niche.

I have created a network of sites. Some people believe that a site must be niche related to have any real impact, but I’m not one of those people. I have several sites that have started to develop some PageRank and with the next update I foresee many of these sites improving as well as the first PageRank of some of my newer sites. This network of sites, especially those with one hundred plus indexed pages, is crawled daily due to the daily updates on the sites. I can use these sites to help new sites get established and generate their own PageRank. It’s a lot easier to build off your old sites success than it is to start from scratch.

An internet forum full of users interested in making money online. A forum can have so many uses for the owner. I could use a forum to get a ton of RSS Subscribers quickly to anything in the general niche, chances are it wouldn’t be asking much since they are already interested in the content I write. A forum also has many indexed pages which can be used for backlinks. You really have to be aware of what you are asking for. I’m not saying you should own a forum to take advantage of people, I’m saying that by owning the forum you can spread the word to users in more ways than the average user. I could mass pm or email users and many of them are likely to want to help out.

An internet identity. I am well known (not necessarily liked, but known) by thousands of internet marketers, and nearly 100,000 people interested in making money online for one reason or another. Becoming well known in itself could bring you decent search engine traffic and if I can offer something of interest to those who know me, they just might help me along whether it’s a blogroll link or them simply becoming an RSS Subscriber. I would recommend setting up a new identity in every different niche you are in and never your real one, but that’s just me.

Finally and most importantly, I’ve met the right people. Consider them friends, consider them contacts, or simply another aspect of blogging, they will help the same. I’ve met many people and consider some of them to be each of the above, a friend, a contact, or just another person who can help me. I think this is the most important because you need both contacts and friends. Friends to keep you from giving up and contacts who you can get help from when you need it.

I think between these things and a few other smaller things that I will be able to reach my ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is something so profitable that I find it senseless to go about it on my own. I believe this for two reasons. The first reason is that I’ve tried this before and gave up, what’s to stop me from doing so again when I don’t see the normally quick results that I’ve become accustomed to. The second being, it’s just so much easier. The profits in the end are so great that they can be split and still leave me with more than I know what to do with. Pending one of my better internet marketer and friends decision, I may have my knowledgeable partner ready to give this a go.

The ultimate goal? Front page for the keyword ‘Make Money Online’. This keyword is cherished by everybody in the make money blogging niche and can bring in some of the easiest money I’ve seen online. It will take months of work, but it will be worth it. Yet another Trying Hard attempt at bringing this blog back, we’ll see how that goes this time around.

What’s My Blog Really Worth?

I’m wondering how my blog will stack up with the other blogs out there once I get this blog approved for the payperpost site. I think I will receive quite a few offers for post if I go in at a low price. That’s where I’m unsure what to do. I don’t know how much I should charge, if I’m allowed to set a minimum price at all. We’ll have to see. I’ll report on this site once I find out how much I like it.

While I don’t want to spam my readers with paid plugs, it’s the only way for the blog to exist right now. I tried publishing content daily before but when I failed to make even a dollar after over a month I kind of lost interest considering one of my other blogs took off and starting booming.

I’m Back

I kind of avoided this blog for a while. I’ve finally decided that I want to give it another shot for a few reasons. I also have a few more options for making money with it as many sites won’t let you sign up until your site is x months old. At about 6 months old I’ll be able to use those paid plug sites which will make my time blogging closer to minimum wage than it was back when I first started this.

I was having issues getting my first dollar on here before. I’m going to rework some things and hopefully get this blog off the ground. If not, you can probably expect this site to fade into nothing again in a few weeks. Help encourage me with an RSS subscription.

My First Dollar

I would like to make my first dollar with the blog while I’m gone. How great of a boost would that be to come back with an advertiser waiting to pay to advertise on my blog? I guess technically, I’ve earned $150 via the video camera I won in the Noob’s contest for the post about his contest on my blog, but that’s a prize.

What I will sell for my first dollar. I will sell you a 125×125 ad on my blog. I will sell up to six of these. I will sell up to five blogroll links. I will even go as far as lowering the price of a paid plug. $10 gets you a post about almost anything on this blog. These prices are a once in a lifetime chance on this blog. Only a dollar for a 125×125 ad or link, and only $10 for a paid plug.

These deals will only be available until I return from vacation. The first six comments saying they will buy a 125×125 will get the spots, the first five blogroll comments will get those spots, and I will take as many paid plugs as are wanted. Obviously, they will be published in order over a certain length of time.

So why not? I’m getting some decent traffic on this blog, and I’m going to strive to make it better. This could be your chance to get some exposure for very little money.

Welcome!

Welcome to the launch of tryingtoblog.com! I’ve been waiting to get this site up and running for quite some time. I’ve seen some of the bigger blogs in this niche, and let me be the first to tell you, I can do that. Obviously this is going to take quite some time as these blogs are large, established, and recognized. I’m not saying I will beat them, I’m saying I can do what they do no problem. They seem to slack off after they reach the top, and I am going to give them a run for their money, or in this case, subscribers.

My success is generally measured in two different categories by my visitors. The first of which is money. It’s a make money blog, so my readers are expecting me to be making money myself if I am teaching them how to make money with their blogs. The more money you make and announce with your payments, the more popular you seem to become. Second would be you guys, the RSS Subscribers. Blogs are all judged upon this provided they show their subscriber counts off to everybody. Honestly I’d be satisfied with close to 200, but to compete with the top dogs I’ll have to grow to the thousands.

So what kinds of posts can you expect from my blog? Well in short, posts that teach you how to make money, make a successful blog, and gain a readership. There are all sorts of topics I have written posts for already. There are the week long guides for improving traffic, there are the posts talking about how to monetize your blog, and much much more. You’ll have to subscribe to see them.

Still working out a few minor kinks in the layout. Hoping you won’t hold that against me seeing as I decided to forgo purchasing a customized layout for the time being. Bear with me, it will be a fun ride to the top.
