    Hey DP gang,

    I just posted a new article and would love some feedback.

    I'm chronicling a journey from $0 to $10k per month in web income and I'm almost halfway there.

    uh well someone gave me reputation as a 'spammer'. sorry if anyone thought that!

    it was obviously self-promotion but hopefully useful information too.

    BTW - Please share your experiences with building blogs, websites, and making money from them.

    I love to hear stories like that (which is one reason why I wanted to share my experiences so far) with the group.

    Cheers!

    You can check out my WebMaster Resource blog.

    It is really new and I don't have much time for posts and thereore post sparingly but I think the information is quite useful.

    I read your post. You have some great tips there (except the quit your day job - not a good thing IMO if you currently have no other source of income).

    Automation is a big thing you should consider when making a site & experimenting as well.

    I checked out the article. You wrote:

    Now for some real data you can take to the bank. Here is our current monthly web income breakdown from our network of 25+ weblogs:
    AdSense: $300
    Advertising we sold ourselves: $1200
    Text-Link-Ads.com Income: $1100


    That adds up to $2600 per month. How do you make the other $1900 (to equal 4500)?

    Two other different websites. (i.e. not part of the weblog network)

    One brings in $1500 per month from text links. The other is just getting started and is mostly AdSense based, income-wise.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I'm looking forward to following your progress as I muddle along myself. I have one site that's averaging a grand a month from Adsense and a second grand from links and affiliates. I've finally got my own dedicated server and about 20 domains.

    VRE, here I come!
