Project updates and goal revisions
I think I've fully recovered from the 30 Day Challenge. During August I was spending close to 12 - 14 hours a day on the computer. Now, I learned a lot, and have started implementing all that I've learned, but I definitely needed a few days off.

During the last few days I've been reviewing my goals for this blog as well as my other projects. I'm coming up on the 100th day of this blog. Looking at it, I don't think I'm going to pull out a miracle finish and hit $100 dollars a day on the 100th day - awww. But that's ok, because I really do think it's possible and that I'll be hitting that goal in a couple of months.

When I started this project - a lot of the focus was on the 'get paid to' programs like CashCrate and Treasure Trooper. My focus has definitely shifted as I've learned more and more about making money online and internet marketing. Now, a lot of my focus is going to be about internet marketing and finding niche markets to try to work on and make money in.

Over the last week I've been concentrating on creating content for a few domains that I purchased. I spent a few hours yesterday submitting to some website directories - wow, how draining is that. Even with some nice software that helps with the submissions it's still tedious. But I figure I can do a little bit of that here and there to help build a bunch of links for my sites.

I also spent about 2 hours writing some articles for that market. I finished up with 5 pretty good articles - I think - and I plan on doing about 5 more tomorrow. I've been submitting those to a few article directories.

What I really like about this process is that I can do one thing till I get tired of it, then move onto another aspect of the project - there's always something to do.

That's also one of the problems with internet marketing. It's easy to become overwhelmed with all of the things you need to do. Writing articles, submitting to directories, building links by commenting on other sites in the niche, coding websites, writing content. I put together a few spreadsheets to help me organize my project and to help me stay on task. It's so easy to be lazy! And that's the one thing that will stop you from being successful in this field. I figure by taking it one step at a time I'll make it there sooner rather than later.

$100 dollars a day translates to roughly 3 grand a month. I'm going to change the sidebar to reflect a monthly goal rather than keep a running tally. That way I can review my progress monthly and I think it'll be easier to see exactly what I need to do to improve each month.

    I think what you are doing is practical, inspiring, non-pretentious and down-to-earth. There are many 'get-paid-to' sites that lack this. And I have to say, I find your site very informative & more importantly, your personality shows through.

    All the best on your quest.

    Keep on.

    And the award for "Best Blog Comment" goes too...

    Aw shucks. Thanks for the kind words Ebele.

    In the end, "Get paid to" is a job and not a business. I think it's great that you're transitioning to the marketing side of things.

    Once you get past the hard part (creating content) I think you'll be able to pull out that $100 a day much quicker, and ultimately with less work. I'm hoping to catch up to you soon! :)

About Me: I am a new dad (well, Harper is a year old) and I'm already worried about his college education. Mostly because I'm still paying mine off. My plan is simple - create multiple streams of online income so that the overall amount of all of them comes out to 100 dollars a day. So here it is: each step along the way about how to make $100 a day in 100 days...
