Success - $2,000 goal hit.
These posts are a bit awkward for me. I usually try to avoid how much money I make, but since I haven't posted here for a long time, I decided to reveal where I am at, so you know I am still here and maybe get some inspiration.
It was painful to watch my profile fall in rank by thousands hehehe...
The last month I managed to finally hit one of my $$$ goals that I created a bit over a year back. My first goal was $100 a month (which I was extremely happy for). That I managed to hit somewhere around May 2015.
Next goal was $2K. I did not believe I would hit it even in 2016, but all of a sudden, numbers just kept going up and up (which means there were moments were everything was linear... scary times).
Yes, Amazon is the one that helped me to reach the goal.
Then like $500 is added from other revenue places. So all in all, around $2,100 from one site.
May seem small money for some of you affiliates, but for me, especially in my country, it's extremely good.
How Did I Achieve it?
Just stick to basics, dude. I made the mistake before of searching for different shortcuts or methods for boosting my posts, but in the end, it won't really matter as much as creating a lot of original articles. Just follow the instructions here on this website, then suck it up and keep writing.
It's actually really simple in theory, but for me it was the most difficult thing to master. Keeping my focus on writing is extremely hard with all the distractions on the internet :P
While writing I sometimes want to go check my mail, go to Youtube, check out Twitch, go eat and watch TV series, go see Reddit, check out adsense, play videogames...
I am young, so I have no work discipline >.<
Then I remember I need to keep writing, and after an hour, distraction cycle repeats. I still struggle with it, but I learn to keep myself steady on task. BTW, meditation helps here. But man oh man it's difficult when there is so much distraction.
But if you manage to beat that, the main passive income problem is solved. Just keep writing, just keep hustling. One of those days you will hit it.
10k per month, here I come!!
