Three Websites & One Blogger BlogClick thumbnail to view full-size
The second half of 2012 and into 2013 the main focus was to expand my online presence using Social Media Platforms. Was it worth it? Damn right it was. Learning how to use and navigate through all of the Social Media Platforms listed above was a smart move. I connected with like-minded people, increased Members, Subscribers and Followers and realized using Social Media automatically attracts and directs traffic my way.
For the rest of 2013 my plan is to update old Hubs and articles at the Revenue Sharing Websites I use to generate residual income. I made a decision to continue to write at five different Revenue Sharing Websites. Hubpages, Infobarrel, Redgage, Bubblews & Bukisa.
I hope this update helps motivate you to continue to build an online business of your own.

2012 Update-The Spoken Truth
It's January 2012 and I'm here to give you an update of the progress I've made and YES, I've made progress.
If you read the content below you will read how I described 2011 to be a challenge. Google slammed the breaks on content farms by introducing the Google Farmer/Panda and it hurt and it hurt bad. But because of the search engine robot changes I was forced to become a better online writer. I made it through the challenge, back on course and do earn money every single day AGAIN.
I learned that updating articles, blogs and website's content is a must do and also learned that creating my own videos to embed in my articles, blogs and websites does help to increase revenue. I'm now a YouTube Partner and whenever I generate revenue from visitors clicking ads being shown on my videos the revenue shows within my Adsense account. I get to see all the money I earn from Adsense within my one Adsense account. I like seeing all of my earnings and stats in one account.
In the second half of 2011, I started earning Adsense revenue from "Adsense For Mobile Content" too. I never considered earning revenue from Mobile Devices when I first joined Adsense so learning that I too earn revenue from Mobile Devices was a pleasant surprise.
Hubpages also went through a transformation of their own too. Hubpages now has their own revenue sharing program and I've reached the minimum threshold twice. Hubpages automatically sends my earned income directly to my PayPal account. Hubpages created a new stream of income for me and I love it.
Well, that's it for now folks. I wanted to share with you how far I've come and that you can do it too. Don't give up and don't despair. Keep at it, write one article a day, every other day or several times a week because the residual income does eventually follow. Best of luck and I'll update this Hub in 2013. Have a great 2012 and make it a year to remember.

What Did Not Happen?
My goodness, ouch and challenging. So many ups and so many downs all happened in the first six months of 2011. The largest challenge was getting hit by google farmer/panda then learning exactly why google did what they did. Revenue Sharing Websites of all levels had to scramble to adjust their platforms to the new rules of the game. Article writers revenue came to a halt. In every Forum I would read the panic comments made by Revenue Sharing Website writers who felt the loss.
Now it's August 2011 and google rolled out their new social network and the new +1 button. Writers, website creators and bloggers are feeling it out and take notice that the +1 button and google plus social network is trying to take over the web again and it's working.
The Google Farmer/Panda Crashed all writers and Revenue Sharing Website platforms of all levels.
Hubpages rolled out their Hubpage Program and adding more features.
Infobarrel updated their writing platform to a 2.0 with enhanced features.
Snipsly added a forum to their writers platform.
Xomba updated their platform.
SheToldMe switched to charging members to use their platform then switched back to a free writing platform again.
The Google Social Network and the +1 button was introduced to the web.
Google plus one Social Network gives Facebook a run for their money. Facebook added features similar to Google Plus One to compete.
Just an update to inform that the game has changed but the opportunity to earn money online is not stronger than ever.
End of Year Update
I'm still writing articles and since my last update I am now a better writer, understand how to optimize my articles for better SEO page rank, I'm much better with Internet Marketing in general and now can say I earn multiple streams of passive income every month.
Never despair folks. Over the past two years I have come close to pulling out my hair and throwing my computer out my window. I have felt despair and understand how someone can have no hope when trying to earn money online.
In the coming months I will be writing new Hubs about Internet Marketing techniques, how to better optimize your articles for better SEO and will be sharing a few tips to help you understand better so you can start to earn more revenue. Have a great summer and again, never despair.
I'm here to discuss how far I've come in the year 2010. In January 2009 I decided to start an Internet Writing Business and now so glad I did. I've come a long way the past two years and I learned what I need to learn to earn steady monthly income each month.
A Brief Overview of What I Learned in the past two years
- The importance of choosing the best-fitting title to describe topic/subject of articles.
- The importance of choosing the best-fitting keywords and using the keywords within my content and trying my best to use them in the first paragraph of my articles.
- The importance of backlinking with relevancy.
- Learning how to use the free Adsense Keyword Tool External.
- Not to put all your eggs in one basket.
- The importance of writing articles at many different revenue sharing websites to help attract new visitors and expanding my presence online.
- The importance of having a few good blogs to update and backlinking my articles to my blogs and my blogs to relevant articles.
- The importance of creating a few good free websites and backlinking my articles to my free websites and my free websites to my articles.
- The importance of writing daily especially the first two years of starting and Internet Writing Business.
- Understanding how to navigate through my Adsense, Chitika, Kontera and Infolink accounts.
- Understanding how to filter ads.
- Understanding how to get advertisers to bid on my real estate ad space on my blogs and websites.
- And the importance of never giving up on a goal and turning that goal into a reality.
I felt it would be a good idea to update this Hub to help you beginners understand creating multiple streams of income online using all free resources is possible and I'm proof it can be done and I'm damn proud of it. Don't give up because all your daily hard work will eventually pay off in the end and it will become easier and you will become much faster at writing articles, blogs and creating free websites.
I look forward to the year 2011 and I will be back next December to keep you all up to date how I reach higher plateaus and goals.
- Free Write Revenue Streams Expanding
My Internet Business is expanding and reaching a new plateau. Continuation to this true story.
A True Story
Hello all you Hubbers,
I came across a Hub and the title is Making Money Online - The Reality. I read it and while I was reading it, every point being discussed was relevant to me.
Because of it's relevancy to my situation I was eager to write a Hub sharing my experience with my online journey. Have you ever heard of the saying Rag-To-Riches ? The saying fits perfectly to anyone who wants to be a success online.
My story start date 2/1/09 . I joined Hubpages in January 2009 and today's date is 4/8/10.
When I first joined Hubpages I did understand I could earn Adsense Revenue for writing Hubs but what I did not understand was the time and energy it would take to actually earn a significant amount of money. I thought it would be a cake walk to riches. I wanted to feel financially independent which would give me the freedom I desired. Work when I wanted to work, travel when I had the itch, dine-out regularly and hang with family and friends whenever I felt like it AND save money in the interim.
It's so easy to believe the ads we come across on the Internet. So many ads claim you can become financially secure over night or within months. I'm here to tell you that financial freedom is possible and can become your reality but only after you put in years of continuous hard work.
Writing online to earn Adsense revenue is a honest legitimate way to earn money online. I'm sure people earn a good living online but what many don't share with you is how long it takes to earn thousands of dollars per month and the work you need to do to reach such a goal.
OK, this might bruise a few egos but I'm expressing my opinion here. Not to many people want to work hard and not to many people stick it out long enough to reach their goals. I feel many people talk a big talk. They claim they work so hard and they put in so many hours and they just don't understand why they are not reaping the rewards. I've asked many people in the past year how many hours per day do they put into growing their Internet business and many people have told me two to three hours per day and shared their frustration and anger too. I never let it be known that I was laughing out loud and I'll tell you why.
Here's My True Story
Do I regret it? NO WAY and I'll tell you why.
Because of what I learned, built and created I can see my near future being someone who is financially independent and financially secure. Because of the experience I have learned that it is possible to generate several streams of income using the Internet. Each day I see the revenue increase at a faster pace. When I first started I made nothing, Nada, zero money.
Let me share with you the programs I use to generate revenue. I earn revenue with Adsense, Chitika, Kontera, InfoLinks, PubMarketPlace. I do belong to Amazon and Adbrite but I haven't earned any revenue as of yet but I'm sure in the future I will. I don't have a particular reason why I chose these programs to work with but I can say I was lead to these programs because I learned about them joining revenue sharing websites such as Hubpages. If it's not broken don't fix it.
If your a member of Hubpages I'm sure many of you are aware that you can earn revenue with Kontera and Amazon. I don't use Ebay so I can't comment but do you realize if you submit your Publisher ID or user name in your Affiliate Settings, each time you write a Hub you are actually earning streams of income.
OK, let me continue with my true story.
It's April 8, 2010 . I've spent the last few months mostly alone, made some time to hang with friends, stopped going out because going out requires money and what do I need to do and already doing? You know it, I need to get a job. This past week I've gone on a couple of interviews and I've sent out a couple of resumes. I'm searching for a job I will be happy at for at least a few years. OH, I'm sure your wondering what I do for a living. I waitress and being a waitress gives you a lot of flexibility which I feel is needed when starting and growing an Internet business.
When I first realized it was possible to earn money online I had big/huge plans. I wanted to put together a proven system and feel I have done that and my main goal was to give an adult education class to teach people within my community how I became financially secure. I still want to give an adult education class teaching people how they can earn money online. I want to teach people that they can better their financial security but now realize teaching people what I do might not be appealing because of all the time and work needed to achieve success. Not to many people want to hear the truth behind succeeding online. I feel most people want an easy way out and those people will probably always (for the rest of their working years) work for someone else and feel they have gotten the short end of the stick. People who do nothing (my opinion) usually complain and feel they are owed something. I've had many people ask me what I do online and I've tried to explain it to them but most don't get it. Most people want to hear I earn thousands per month and when I don't they usually make some kind of face or negative comment. What they don't understand is my future is bright with blue skies and I'm half way there . I've come to realize I need to work for someone else for another three to five years but the second half of my life, no way and no how. I'm taking my time to find the perfect job for me because I want to give my all and be happy for years to come and of course continue to grow and expand my Internet business at the same time.
I have a plan and I'm following through which not to many people do.
Do I have regrets concerning my Internet business, NOT AT ALL.
ONE MORE IMPORTANT BIT OF INFORMATION
of the revenue sharing websites offer a referral link to their members.
In the years to come I'm sure (I already have) I will get people to
join the revenue sharing websites I'm a member of and they will write
hubs, articles, blogs, posts, stories and scoops. Whenever people join
from my personal referral link and they write I earn additional revenue.
Over time it adds up.
I've made many friends here at Hubpages and at a few other revenue sharing websites. I'm sure many of my followers have gotten used to me writing Hubs at a fast pace but the reason why I was writing so many Hubs at a fast pace was because I made the time but now I must get back to my known reality. I won't be leaving . My goal is to put in at least six hours per week writing, reading and commenting online. My six hours a week will be super productive because now I know what I am doing. I don't second guess myself and I know how to write informative articles, blogs, hubs, posts, stories, scoops, create backlinks, create websites AND taught myself how to embed Pay Per Click Publisher Network HTML Codes into my website builders. Learning and creating a proven system is half the battle.
I hope this story inspires you and helps keep you focused on your path to Internet success.
