    Try to create some internal linking in Your blog. That means, when You write a new post, try to make one or two links to older previous posts. You can also edit old existing posts and insert a few links to newer posts. See my blog (in signature) as a reference.

    Thanks for sharing your goal with us.

    Do you have a target date, for when you wish to receive your cheque?

    Our parents are usually the first people to say negative things and dissuade us when we try to do something. Maybe it's because of their love for us that they don't want us taking any risks. Using this as a motivator in an attempt at proving them wrong is actually a very good move for you.

    By the way, are you just earning revenue from google ads? You might try changing the ads settings so that they'll be more tailored to your subject, which is technology. I, myself, will not click ads about "Batch/BAT Files Made Easy" and "Optical Sensors". Improving on your theme and layout will also do wonders to your site.

    Best of luck magician661.

    Posting your articles on forums and at Digg is a great start. Keep that up and do it for every post you make.

    You should also review the links in this thread especially the one titled 0 to $500 per month and the beginners guide to blogging. As suggested in those articles you could start submitting your blog to free directories and link to your blog in comments on other popular related blogs.

    You might also want to consider the placement of ads at the top of your blog. Ask yourself will this deter first time visitors from coming back to your site?

    Please post back to let us know how you are progressing.

    Hey magician

    I checked Your blog again, and I still can't see the improvement I suggested a few posts before. Next time You write an article, add a link somewhere in Your post to a previous post. This will enhance internal linking, which leads to better rankings in the search engines.

    Some more ideas:

    Check this link
    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/forumdisplay.php?f=65
    There You can find directory advertisements. Most of the listed directories are free. Enter Your site into those directories.

    Go on a forum related to Your blogs topic. Give a short helpful answer to peoples questions there. Also add a link to an article on Your blog that answers the question in a long and complete way.

    Comment on other blogs. Again comment helpful. If people see a helpful comment they might check out who was posting.
    Hint: "Nice post, keep up the good work!" is not a helpful comment.

    Write more. Over the time Your writing style will become better and more people want to read Your words.

    Make a keyword research to find new keywords and see what people search for:

    Are you still earning some revenue from your blog?

    What is your traffic like now?

    Thanks for sharing your goal with us.Our parents always thinks good for us.They may be have a acidic tongue with us but they wish for our secure future and developed life.If you can achieve your goal,you will fulfill your parent's dreams.Don't misunderstand them

    Anyway,what is your target check amount and when you wish to receive it from Google.
