After months of diligent reading, several episodes of giving up, learning from psat mistakes and loads of hard work (content writing is tough, but rewarding), I can now finally say I have made my first dollar. I know this is pocket change, but holy... Am I proud! I am now more motivated than ever to continue expanding my site and have plans for a second site on the horizon. Man, am I excited... It feels like it has finally begun!
As a motivational note to my fellow-newbies: no matter how stuck you are in the thick mud of cpc, ppc, seo and all those other acronyms we know and love... Keep going! Don't give up if the people ain't coming. Content is king and it will eventually draw people. If your site dleivers, your effort will not go in vain. Just keep experimenting and learn from your experiences.

LOL-Actually saved and framed my first Google Check-couldn't believe money could be made on the internet-LOL. Now it sits in my office in my new home, where I enjoy full time work on the internet. A reminder that hard work will pay off.
