Last week I went through the domain names I still had and picked out a few that I thought still had potential. Some of them still had a blog on them with content, others didn't. I made sure every one of them has WordPress installed and cleaned up now and ready to go.
My goal is to start posting content on five of those sites with minimum one post on each site per week and have them start making money by december 2018. I'm not setting an income goal for this, I'm just looking to see if I still "got it". One of them that still had content has made some money in the last year (not much, a few small sales here and there on Amazon) so I know it's still possible.
My second goal is to start re-learning. After being out of it for this long I know things has changed and I'll need to find out what works and what doesn't in todays IM world, so I'm also making it my goal to take some time every day to learn something new AND implement it on those sites (at least one of them to test and if successful try out on the others).
Below I have an overview of where I am right now, I'll update this weekly to see how things are improving. I'll set all of them at $0 for now, even the ones who have made money in the past, just so I can see how things are improving. I'm not expecting income immediately, but I do hope to see improvement soon.
ETA: as Kay King pointed out below, traffic might be a better way of keeping track of how things are going. So I'm adding the traffic numbers I have at this point for March 2018. Since most have been "dead" that won't be a lot, but hey, it's a start One of these has a Facebook page which I still post too regularly, so once I figure out how I plan to use that I might see traffic for that one going up faster. We'll see.
Site 1: 6 blog posts - 23 visitors in March 2018

Site 3: 16 blog posts - 24 visitors in March 2018
Site 4: 2 blog posts - 11 visitors in March 2018
Site 5: 0 blog posts - 7 visitors in March 2018 (no clue were those are coming from since I have no content on it and it's not me)
My first update will be on Monday, I hope to have at least one, maybe two blog posts added to each.
