America Needs a Renaissance
The Vehicular Experiment

Starting out. That is always the roughest part for me. I always second guess my actions and wonder if I am doing the right things.

I do hereby give myself permission to fail.

There, that feels better. I am now freed from the idea that everything I do has to be perfect. It is ok to try different things and learn from the mistakes.

It seems simple enough, right. Giving yourself permission to fail. I think that for a lot of people that fear holds them back. I know it holds me back. I have more than a few projects that I have started then abandoned because I want it to be perfect. I want it to work.

The funny thing is, I am guaranteeing that they will fail because of my fear that they will fail. I think that if I give myself the chance, this endeavor make be successful. At the very least it will be a learning experience.

So, as I explained previously in the first post of this site, I have in my possession a collection of low quality articles. They revolve around things automotive and also  include RV, motorcycles and watercraft. I paid $5.00 for these articles on

If you don’t know, it is a site that is a marketplace for goods and services that cost $5.00. There are some interesting purchases that can be made. I am sure during the course of this experiment, I will have more dealings with the people on that site.

I then needed a place to post these article. I registered from GoDaddy for the princely sum of $3.99 for a total investment of $8.99.

The grand idea was to see if I could make $9.00 or more using these tools. I have to say that I was very surprised at how quickly that happened. I have been keeping track of some stats. I don’t know yet which will be useful. But here is an accounting so far on the number of posts, the Adsense revenue and the pageviews: Accounting
Date, Adsense, AS Pageviews, AS Clicks, WP Pageviews, Posts
11/27, $1.08, 193, 2, , 7
11/28, $0.00, 21, 0, , 5
11/29, $0.00, 3, 0, 1, 0
11/30, $2.34, 15, 1, 12, 1
12/1, $0.00, 6, 0, 4, 0
12/2, $0.42, 20, 1, 2, 4
12/3, $2.71, 47, 2, 19, 3
12/4, $0.00, 13, 0, 1, 0
12/5, $0.00, 21, 0, 0, 0
12/6, $8.21, 43, 10, 24, 2
12/7, $0.01, 204, 1, 14, 1
12/8, $0.00, 30, 0, 1, 0
12/9, $0.00, 5, 0, 1, 0
12/10, $1.19, 11, 1, 9, 2
12/11, $0.00, 15, 2, 11, 0
12/12, $0.00, 6, 0, 6, 0
12/13, $0.00, 12, 0, 12, 0
12/14, $0.00, 5, 0, 5, 0
12/15, $0.00, 8, 0, 5, 0
TOTALS, $15.96, 678, 20, 127, 28

Not bad. So now that I have made back the $8.99, I wonder how far will this go?

This is not, one of those sites that says “I made $5,000 in one month and so can you!” I wish it were one of those sites but I am just a guy. I have a grasp of the English language, I can write my thoughts somewhat intelligently. I have a better than average working knowledge of the interent. I know how to use google to answer the questions I may have.

This is a site that will chronicle this journey. The main ideas that I am finding that are important are these, in no particular order:

  • Keyword Research
  • Building Websites
  • Google Adsense
  • Google Analytics
  • Search Engines
  • Social Media
  • Content Writing
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Web Traffic
  • Internet Marketing

I am sure that there are other ideas that I will need to know and I will add them to this ever growing list. I hope to even pick up some people along the way that want to learn along with me. At this point, all I can offer them is the knowledge. I don’t consider these a money making scheme, in fact I would have to consider it a “make little money slow” at this point. That is OK. It is becoming winter where I live and being inside on the computer exercising my brain is not a bad thing. I could be watching TV!

This is my corner of the Internet. I keep things here that I like. I try out things. I display things. I share things.
