So what have I been up to?
I finished a new article. I wrote my about and contact pages, since I want to charge for consultations in the future, I also took a picture of me to give my site more credibility. Another thing I did was I came up with two awesome ideas that solve two big problems people have, I can't execute them right now because I don't have enough money, so I wrote them down and will come back to them later in the future.

You mentioned you were doing some academic consultations and also selling products in bulk.
My questions are the following:
-Why would people buy from you instead of buying directly from your supplier?
-Which of the both "bussinesses" that you have gives you more income? Which one more hardwork?
Keep them posts commin'!
Well, first, they would have to know who my supplier is, figure out customs, have money enough to place an MOQ, most people just won't bother, and even if they did, it would take them a long time to figure all of that out, I actually just happened to stumble upon this, I wasn't actively looking to sell those exact products, I just wanted to make some money, which btw I haven't made any of lately, and I just used all my previously acquired knowledge to deal with everything else.
I'm not actually doing any consultations at the moment, that's more of a medium term thing, I first need to establish myself as the go to guy in my field. I want to charge $200/hour, so no point in trying to do that now when I'm literally a nobody.

You say that you have a hard time finishing articles. I can relate. I used to spend 4+ hours on a single article. This included writing, editing, finding photos or taking them myself, and uploading them.
It took an outside observer - Thohon in this instance - to confirm what I suspected... that was way too much time to spend on one article that may not even get picked up in google rankings.
If I can offer this advice - and it's what I've recently started doing - aim for 80% "good enough" instead of 99% "almost perfect."
Better to spend one hour on an 800-word article that's 80% "good enough" and then move on to your next one. In a few months you can come back to all the articles you've written, see which ones are getting traffic, THEN come back and make THOSE 99% "almost perfect" if you want.
I know your articles are longer - close to 10,000 words, but the same general idea applies. (By the way, have you thought about breaking that up into several articles? People have a hard time finishing through a single article that long, between 800 - 1500 words seems to be the sweet spot.)
Keep at it, bro - your consistent work will pay off.
Thanks for the support and advice, man, I truly appreciate it!
I'm actually a perfectionist, and it gets out of control sometimes without me even noticing it, I'll follow your advice from now on and focus on "good enough".
I made 45 on Tuesday, January 10.
Total money for January so far: $1157.
On the morning of the same day, my beautiful beautiful beautiful dog Sachi died.
He was the best dog ever.
Would put his snout on the border of my bed when I was sleeping to wake me up.
Would greet me every time I got back home like he was the happiest animal on earth.
On Monday, I had to go out to look for places to move into, I thought it wouldn't take me more than 5 hours, I left him in a room by himself, and I stupidly and irresponsibly forgot to leave a water bowl for him.
Because of a series of unfortunate events which I'll spare you the details of, I got back home 12 fucking hours later only to find him near death.
He couldn't stand, couldn't bark, couldn't move at all, we gave him some water with a small syringe and he drank it, he would look at us with intent almost like saying "oh god, you're finally here" and after that we lost him almost entirely, his heart was beating but that was basically it, I don't know if he knew we were with him when he died, but I know he knew we were with him before he died.
He didn't die of dehydration, he died because he had testicular cancer and we believe it had metastasized, he actually had surgery scheduled for Thursday, but when we got back home we noticed he had vomited a lot of blood in several places, for a small dog like him, that was a lot of blood. So even though my dumb mistake didn't kill him, it did make his death less "tolerable".
There are two things that piss me off the most, first, when we picked him up from the street 6 years ago, we took him to the vet, he said "one of his testicles is in his belly and hasn't come down" and that was it, how the fuck am I supposed to know that it either comes down or he'll need surgery! After that we took him to the vet several times throughout the years and none of them ever told us anything about his testicle.
Second, two of the three real estate agents we were meeting with didn't show up! If they had told us the truth that they weren't coming, we wouldn't have gone and we would have been with my Sachi on the day of his death.
They probably didn't bother to show up because the houses we were interested in weren't expensive at all, so not much money for them, which is fine and understandable BUT man the fuck up and be honest! I hate inconsiderate people, I think the world would be a better place without them.
I will start working on my blog for 6 hours a day to honor my dog starting tomorrow, not today because today I'll finish up digging a hole deep enough to bury him so nobody can bother him ever.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
