Focus on building content and traffic. Traffic doesn't mean money, there are diff kinds of traffic. Having diff websites I can tell you some sites with big traffic earn less (or more) than other sites. Some sites make almost no difference on how much you update the page, so as you can see there are many variables involved.
Sure you can grow big in traffic but my opinion: stay clean. I've seen competitors going big in 3 months and 8 months later their accounts closed. Play by the rules, be clean, as said before, this way you can make good friends on the forums (not if you play dirty).
Try your best. I've been working hard with this for years, the results are good, not what I expected (projected) but anyway this has made me a working man, not a lazy one. Good luck.
