Finally Hit $10,000 in a month

    I original joined DP shortly after signing up with Adense to learn more about using it. I've learnt a great deal here and find threads like this inspiring so thought I'd share.

    After a few near misses I've finally hit one of my goals of making $10,000 from Adsense in one month, it's been tight at times but I managed it with 2 days to spare. I've been doing sites somewhat seriously part-time for around 2 years and it's certainly possible with work to generate a fair chunk of change, so my advice to anybody that wants to do it is learn from forums like this and just go for it.

    If anybody is interested I am documenting the first year of one of my sites over at Self Made Minds where I'm sharing stats on income and traffic. So hopefully this thread will act as a bit of promotion as well as inspiration :).

    Congratulations. The first 10k is the hardest. (In my case 5k). After that, it's a lot easier.

    Good work, welcome to the "UPS" club. The trick is to maintain it month after month. I'm also in the "UPS" club, and my goal is now $20k / month (not a bad problem to have)

    Thanks guys. I've had quite a few goals along the way ($1 a day, $100 a month, $1000 a month, $100 a day, etc) and they've all had their obstacles to overcome. For me the $100 a day was a massive milestone and I found it didn't take long from that to get to $200.

    Like ronmojohny my next Adsense goal is $20K per month, though I be concentrating on other income streams more for a while.

    4. Do you have to invest ten's of thousand of dollar (initially)?

    Thanks
