Actually three. I released an ebook new year's eve.

Ok. So I got started with trying my hand at making money online roughly six months ago.

At first I started two domains but it turned out to be complete duds. The reason was that I had no motivation really to go towards that niche.

Then I started developing my blog. I've always had a blog. For 10 years I've kept a journal on my life. Never really thought about doing anything with it since I was a 9-5er.

I kept on with the content. Tweaking here and there but no SEO or anything. Just trying to keep a writing schedule and keeping things as honest and helpful as can be.

One of my blogs hit a keyword for an entry that I wrote about (today I hit the highest ever). Something personal. So I devoted the entire blog on that one key word. I like it because it is something that I feel passionate to write about, and something personal. During the holidays, I developed an ebook like a mad man.

My traffic is really low at this point compared to you guys. But my audience is slowly increasing. I hope to get more conversions, as I will be using the cash to register for a domain. I am really small at this point. But I am growing.

Here's to a prosperous 2014.

      This is great news. Perhaps you could list your ebook as a WSO. Put a link in your signature to a squeeze page that has a chapter of the ebook and then upswell the rest of the book. Also you could ask some warriors to review it and maybe put a link to your sales page on their thank you pages. Just some suggestions
      I hope you sell masses in 2014
