General posts for my “regular” updates and goings on as I build this blog and work on my Web Income earnings.

What a Waste of Time!

Commuting is such a huge waste of time!  My commute in to work takes me 1/2 hour and my commute home is usually about 1 hour.  That’s 1 1/2 hours lost each day!  Not to mention the fact that it’s no fun sitting in rush hour traffic; it’s actually shocking how exhausted I am when I get home. I definitely think I made a pretty big Read More →

The Big Backlink Debate – Manually or Organically?

Today I created my first ever Squidoo Lens.  It centers around a project of mine called SEO Case Study.  In the project I attempt to rank on the first page of Google’s search results without actually hunting down and building backlinks (off-page SEO).  Instead, I’ll focus my time and efforts on doing keyword research, creating quality content and fine tuning my on-page SEO.  I’m calling Read More →

My First Affiliate Store

Note: I’ll be postponing this effort while I participate in the Niche Site Duel 2.0 challenge.  In that challenge I will be building a site from scratch and learning a lot along the way.  Hopefully then I can come back on finish the site I originally mentioned in this post – and do it right :) It is definitely a little premature to say I’ve Read More →

Day Five – It’s for real now!

This definitely feels a lot more real now.  I officially stated my intent to join the Niche Site Duel 2.0 over at the Smart Passive Income blog.  If I’m not mistaken, this is also my first trackback link. Since I’m way behind on my day job, I’m got to cut this short right here.   Day 5 Complete – time spent: 2 hours Created my Read More →

Day Four – I’m going to have to fire myself!

This is crazy!  I’m having so much fun researching this affiliate marketing stuff and playing around with building blogs & web stores that I’m not actually doing my day job.  Today was another right-off as far as my regular work goes.  So, I’m going to keep this short because I really need to do some work on my day job.   Day 4 Complete – Read More →

Day Three – Oops, I got sidetracked by DropShipping

Today I was supposed to work on my first affiliate store but I got seriously sidetracked by DropShipping.  The sad part is, I wasn’t even planning on using DropShipping for my store!  If you’ll recall I had already picked out some affiliate products on Amazon. How did this happen you ask?  Well, I was minding my own business researching which hosting provider I should use Read More →

Day Two – Blogging is Fun!

Blogging is fun!  Or, at least, I’m still excited about it on day 2 :-) Today I was planning on creating an affiliate store.  This involves researching unique products and coming up with a cool & original way to sell them.  While I didn’t actually create a site, I at least came up with an original idea, I think/hope.  I did manage to find some products Read More →

Day One – Create a Blog

I’m really doing this!  I’m creating a blog to keep track of my progress in my attempt to earn a living online.  Also, this blog should be the kick in the pants I need to keep motivated and on track.  From what I’ve heard there’s no better way to keep yourself true to your word than to make your intentions known to the public.
