I am very excited that you have chosen to read my blog. And I am very excited to be able to write for you. In case you don’t know me, I am going to give a brief history of who I am, what I do, and the purpose of this blog!

First off, my name is Sean. I have been designing websites for 12 years now and have been in the “business” of web design for 10 years. My web design company is called Darwin Studios. You can view a sampling of my Atlanta web design portfolio if you wish to see some of my work. This has been a very successful venture for me the last couple of years, but it has still not gotten to the point where I can quit my day job and support my family.

This brings me to the reason I am starting this blog. I have learned over the years that I can make a decent living designing sites for other people, but I don’t know if this path will ever lead me to financial independence. Because of this, I have been on a quest for knowledge about how to create sites for MYSELF that can make ME money too instead of just my customers. All the while I will continue to design and develop for businesses.

This blog will focus on my journey to achieve financial independence by making money online using my own websites. This includes creating sites that use Google Adsense, Text-Link-Ads, Commission Junction, and other affiliate publishers.

I have already been doing this sort of thing for about a year and a half and have already come a long way (for me anyway). I plan to share with you my successes, secrets, and ambitions on this topic as well give you hard numbers as to what I am making on certain ventures to help you along with yours. In particular, I will tell you monthly how much I am making on this blog and how it was earned. As of today, I have earned $0.00!! In fact, I am $8.95 in the hole for registering my domain name 😉
