No Passive Income

I’m writing this blog post, because I have decided for 2012 to get serious about blogging.   Not only am I giving myself a goal to do a minimum of two posts a week.  I also want to experiment with earning some Passive Income only through the internet. I know there are other means of earning passive income but this experiment will only be from the internet.   My strategy is to accumulate my passive income earnings by either Google Adsense, E-book sales, Article writing, Advertisers and Affiliate sales.  I will be measuring my progress by what is earned by all three websites.  The three websites are made up of my business site, my personal finance site, and my niche site.  I have not created the niche site yet, so it is not up live, but the domain is purchased and I know what my target niche.


My goal for the year is to earn $5,000 in Passive Income through any of the strategies I mention above.  That will make a monthly goal of $417; I will post my stats at the beginning of the month to be transparent with my results.  I do plan to learn about SEO and how it works, now I’m not trying to be an expert, but I do know I cannot just expect traffic to just happen magically.  I will be using Pat Flynn’s back linking strategy from Smart Passive Income, his strategy is clear and straightforward, and you do not have to be a techie to understand.

Getting Started

I know February will be over in 5 days, but it’s never too late to get started.  I not going to beat myself up about why didn’t I get started on January 1st.  What’s important that I plan to make a commitment?  Since March 1st is staring me in the face I will still post my monthly goal benchmarks, even though I will be at zero.  So where am I currently with passive income from online sources, $0.

    I’m glad that I found your post. I am actually going through almost exactly the same experience with the same income as well :-)

    Pat Flynn’s site has probably been the most helpful and motivating for me so far. His SEO guide has been extremely useful for a SEO newb like myself.

    Good luck in 2012!
