I Have Been Off Work For 14 Days

I was not able to go into work from Friday 9th February 2024 till Thursday 22nd February 2024. I have been severely ill for 2 weeks and could not work 12 hour long shifts as a security officer.

If You Don’t Go In You Don’t Get Paid

I work in a job that pays per the number of hours worked. If I don’t go into work, I don’t get paid. There is no sick pay offered by the company that I work for. I can only claim statutory sick pay, and this is not even worth claiming. It’s a ridiculous amount that does not cover living costs.

I was working my 12 hour long night shifts and all of a sudden, I was not able to go into work. This made me think deeply about the job that I was doing. These 12 hour long night shifts are really put a strain on my body and my sleep pattern is completely messed up.

I am currently working approximately 60 hours weekly, I need to cut down the hours as soon as possible. Whilst I was off work, I had been thinking deeply about what I could do to cut my working hours. This daily blogging was also putting strain on my body, as I need time to recover after 12 hour long shifts.

I Had To Find Something Better

I knew that I had to find something better. I started looing for a viable option that required less time and would bring in more revenue rapidly.

The income from my affiliate marketing was not enough for me to quit my job yet. I had to supplement it with another source of income. It had to be an online venture as I had little time to spare.

I looked at drop shipping, print on demand, kindle publishing, selling on eBay and Etsy… all of these required a lot of time and money to establish.

After many hours of online research… I came across the Million Dollar Hompage by Alex Teu. He used this simple ideas of selling pixels on a webpage to raise over $1,000,000. He sold a million pixels at $1 each to link logos/image to the buyers website.

This was a simple ideas and it paid off. I started to reverse engineer this concept to work with blogs. I know it is really difficult to drive traffic to blogs, especially during the initial stage.

The Million Dollar Blog List

I came up with idea of the Million Dollar Blog List. I was going to offer 10,000 premium blog listing at $100 per listing to generate a revenue of $1,000,000.

This was a simple concept, I believed in it and started working on it whilst lying in bed. I had my laptop and painkillers in hand, the night was young and I started transform this dream into reality.

I registered the domain and set up the web hosting, I had the site up and running within 24 hours. It was a simple site that uses a screenshot of the blog, a description and a link to the blog.

The user gets a visual representation of the blog, get to read a summary of the blog and has the option to visit the blog by clicking the click to it.

I have made it easy to navigate the site and kept the design simple. I had been working on the site and got completed immersed into the vision, I completed forgot about the pain!

Now that the site is up and running, I need to get eyeball on it. Traffic is the key element that will make this venture into a success. The bloggers that take out a listing will need to see that their listing will get viewed by a large number of people.

Getting To Over 1,000 Visitors Daily

I have placed a public tracker on the site’s footer so that visitors can see the traffic that the site is getting. I am also tracking the traffic via Google Analytics, but I have used the public tracker as a proof of the traffic recieved.

Visitors to the site can click on this tracker image to see the number of visitors the Million Dollar Blog List is receiving. These numbers may not be 100% accurate, but can be used as an indication of the traffic received.

I launched the site on the 17th of February and had 17 visitors. Currently the average number of visitors per day is 465. I am working towards getting this to over 1,000 visitors per day.

A listing on the site will have a good chance of getting viewed and the link followed, if 1,000 people are visiting the site daily. In a month there will be 30,000 visitors, and the listing will stay on the site for a minimum of 10 years.

I think $100 per listing is a reasonable price, as I will be working extensively towards driving traffic to the Million Dollar Blog List.

Let’s See How Long It Takes For The First 1,000 Daily Visitors

The Million Dollar Blog List is a dream that can be transformed into reality. The site is up and running, it’s just a matter of getting the traffic and the listings.

Getting 3 listings daily would enable me to quit my job and work on this on a full-time basis. My initial goal is to get to 1,000 daily visitors, whilst still working at my current job.

I would appreciate it greatly if you would share the link to the Million Dollar Blog List with others. You can also bookmark the site and visit it regularly to browse through the listings and read interesting blog posts.

I will be returning back to work tonight (Friday 23rd February 2024). I have not recovered 100%, but will need to get back to work to enable me to get paid something to cover some of my monthly expenses.

If you have a blog, support me by taking out a listing. I will work daily towards getting traffic to the Million Dollar Blog List. You support at this initial stage will be much appreciated.
