My little Story about how I got into Online money making - Share yours too.

I don't know there were so many things that I wanted to say here but have already been put up by so many people in the best of ways that I am hardly left with anything much but my own story. I guess I am a little too late on these forums. But better late than never . Here it goes..

As a kid I always wanted to do something in computers - Lack of understanding about higher education, you can say

When I grew up that "something in computers" changed to "Engineering in CS"

And then with my hard work and dedication, i took up admission in Engineering.

I wanted to earn some pocket money simultaneously and was fond of reading this computer magazine DIGIT. In a subscription I read about blogging and Google Adsense . A basic know how to make money via a site.
With all the resources and knowledge I had, I finally took up blogging and copy pasting type of Grunt Job which I used to do from my home and make some $100 per month.
During all these years of study, one thing I was sure about that I would be worst as a programmer.

In my final year of college,I got selected in an MNC but fortunately or unfortunately the company got acquired by some other company wh canceled all the new placements.

Until then I never realized I want to take up my online part time job as a full time career.
So I teamed up with the same company I used to do blogging for and the guy, agreed to partner with me and do some projects together.

This is how I came up with a few sites and started generating income through them. Amazingly, I did a lot of code handling in PHP, CSS, HTML. I don't know from where did that understanding came from.

The most important thing that I experienced again and again was the "never give up attitude" and "focus".

I kept on trying and I still am trying. My greed for knowledge does not end. I compete with myself every single day and make sure I learn one new thing each day. I am not big at the moment but I can say with confidence that one day I will be, attending Pub Cons around the world.

I think that's enough about me and would like to know how others got into online business and share a brief story to add a personal touch to your post.
Please feel free to share.

Thanks to all those who took out time and made an effort to read/reply to this post.

    Great story! "Never give up attitude"

    I started programming at the age of 12 on the Amiga 500. To make a long story short, I ended up studying Informatics and got a job as software developer. A couple of years later, I'm mostly doing management and IM, still within the software industry.

    Thank's for sharing your story!

    Hey Great story!

    I have dabbled a little bit on and off in making money online, but I'm only just starting to get serious about it.

    A few years back I made quite a lot of money through Google Adsense, but I haven't really done a whole lot since other than a few blogs.

    I moved back to Australia from the UK in February and I haven't been able to pick up a job since then. Even though my husband works, I got sick of feeling like I wasn't making a contribution. So, I'm in the process of launching my own creative agency specialising in copywriting, events and photography and I intend to combine that with various ideas to make money online (based mostly around my copywriting skills). I figured I have nothing to lose at this point, and I have family who are quite successful at internet marketing so I thought I would make use of my skills and family's knowledge to create my own job rather than constantly looking for one.

    I'm hoping to get into a bit of product development and go from there.
