Hi everyone, I'm 17 and I've been visiting the forum for more than a year now. I read the millionaire fastlane while in high school and I'm in my first year in college.

Now, I've been interested in entrepreneurship since I was 14. But my knowledge wasn't as developed as this especially after reading the millionaire fastlane. My perspective changed and I now have a sense of hope in pursuing my dreams.

From my skillset, I'm pretty good at web technologies and the internet and I believe I have a good shot at making money online. I've tried blogging, being the only business I can start on a low budget. Although, I do things well and strive to provide some value to people through my blog. I find it difficult to build traffic and earn from my work.

I read here in the forum that AdSense is not a good business model to earn from. But being the only business that is congruent with my strength and budget, I have to do it.

I see a lot of other young people succeed to make money from it. How long foes it really take to build a successful blog that has high traffic? How can I improve my visibility on the Search engines since a bulk of visitors in my niche use google to search for information I offer.

I'll appreciate advice. Thanks

You are "pretty good at web technologies and the internet", not at blogging, right?

Do you know the SEO required to grow a blog? Do you provide some real value to your visitors?

What about doing some freelance work in the meantime -- perhaps you can write articles for others -- to improve your skills and earn money you can put into your blog?
