1 Month Update
It's been one month now and I can honestly say that I'm very proud of myself!
I haven't given up yet.
My website: www.themoneyplug.com is still growing and up to almost 1,000 views this month.
I didn't believe it at first but keywords really do play an important part in gaining traffic. I have fallen in love with Jaaxy. I was able to bring up other websites that were similar to my own and copy their keywords. I found out that finding high traffic, low competition based keywords will help with advertising because the CPC will be much cheaper. I'll keep this in mind if I decide to use my Bing Ads or Adwords promo codes.
My website has been indexed. I've been Adsense approved. I've been accepted by over 30 affiliate programs ( that's quite a bit ) but I'm happy because it gives me a reason to keep making content every single week.
I've been getting a lot of good feedback from friends and followers. I'm glad that people my age are willing to learn how to build a better budget and earn money themselves instead of waiting 2 weeks for a paycheck. While researching content for my website, I've come across more and more ways to improve my own budget and continue to help my friends, family, and peers do the same.
I'm still working on building my social media accounts!
I'd appreciate any like, follow, or comment you guys are willing to take the time to give. I'll happily return the favor.
