As the New Year is upon us, I for one am excited about the passive income opportunities that await me in 2013. 2012 was a whirlwind of a year for me as I quit my original plan for a money-making blog. I wanted all of the work and time that I put in online to create more of a passive income. It’s been a long and slow learning process for me, but I am definitely heading in the right direction. I’ve attempted several different methods throughout the past year to try to create online passive income. Most of them had something to do with creating different types of websites, and that is mostly what I blogged about on this site. I didn’t have a ton of success with my niche sites, but there still is hope for a few of them in the future. I do have three passive income opportunities that I have been working on that I am really excited about and plan to concentrate on in 2013.
My internet marketing attempts have been fun and interesting, to say the least. I seem to keep jumping from one thing to the next, trying to find the strategy that works best for me to earn an online income. You could say that I have the shiny object syndrome. Every time I see something that looks new or better, I abandon what I was doing and jump to the next thing. My latest, the niche blog project, is actually going to combine much of what I’ve learned over the past year or so and put it all together on one awesome site. The Pay Off Credit Card Network is my brand new site and here is a little bit of background explaining how I got to where I am today.
Wow! It is taking me a really long time to build my first niche site. As mentioned earlier, I bought two domains and want to complete both of those sites before I buy any more. The entire ordeal is a huge learning process for me, as I am new to WordPress and the concept of building niche websites. Regardless of how long it is taking, I am pleased with how the first site is coming along. I did some things with it though that might be considered dumb. I want to explain them here in this post. First off, I want to share exactly where and how I have learned (and am still learning) how to build niche sites.
Internet Experts Who Have a Clue
That’s right! I’ve learned everything from others who I consider to be experts in internet marketing, building websites, and just making money on the internet in general. All of the information I’ve consumed was free
Dumb Passive Income Introductory Post
Hello! Welcome to Dumb Passive Income. This is the very first post on a brand new blog that I’ve decided to create. Allow me to introduce myself, in case you’ve not yet read my about page. My name is Matthew Allen. You can call me Matt if you’d like. I’ve been around the blogosphere for a little while now. Most recently, I’ve been blogging in the personal finance niche at RamblingFever Money. More about that in a later post. But, for those of you who may recognize my name, that is where I come from.
If you’ve read the last three posts that I wrote on my RamblingFever Money blog, you would see that I’ve recently had a bit of a revelation when it comes to creating passive income and getting rich quick. For this very reason, I’ve decided to abandon my former blog and concentrate on this one instead. Within the contents of this blog, I plan to highlight exactly what I am doing to create passive income.
