    Some articles about web development/marketing on Digg today include: (some are pretty basic but provide a good summary).

    In 2000, Microsoft released the first beta of a product called .NET 1.0. The product, a framework of classes, was the answer to problems that Microsoft faced from the developer community, particularly the Java community. Microsoft was seen as old-fashioned and behind the times. The .NET Framework convinced many, and now developers embrace .NET.

    The niche blogs are definately a great money maker. We have done both standard blogs (slow and steady) and fully automated ones to drive a ton of traffic virtually overnight. With a proper layout and a good subject the clicks really add up.

    Ahh sorry lol. Basically I want at least 1K per month after a year. I know in the big scope of things its small but if I can make 1K per month after a year I can easily put up a lot more websites focusing on other themes.

    I currently follow all the above steps with 1 500 word article a day and will for the entire year. All original and different topics on my keywords. I have given myself one full year doing it the right (legit) way.
