No sense saying all that crap about "Welcome to my new blog". Let's just get to work.
So you've discovered SEM, Internet Marketing, VRE, whatever you want to call it. Cool, welcome to the club. Now, how can you start making money right away?
First of all, don't start a blog about your trials on making money. Don't start a blog on Adsense, or SEO, or a recap of Danny's show. Please. We don't need any more of those.
Since you're just starting out, most likely with no money, let me first point you to a few forums of interest. Forums are a good place to troll and learn the basics. You won't learn the good stuff, but before you can even think about the good stuff, you've gotta have down the basics. I suggest you sign up for Digital Point, eWealth and maybe WickedFire. Don't jump in and start posting unless you want a short career on those sites. Rather, troll and read and read and read. Then read some more.
Once you've read (I'm talking a few months here), you're probably comfortable enough to understand what's going on, how people are making big fortunes (don't believe most of that) and you'll be all fired up to make some ca$h. Sit down, buckle up and enjoy the ride.
It'll be fun.
