I started writing this blog because I wanted to create dialogue around personal finances. I’ve always loved personal finance and am really amazed at how little most people care about their finances.
So, here I was blogging away and then I noticed that Google had a thing called Adsense. I thought, WOW. I could actually earn money while I blog? It almost seemed too good to be true. Do something I enjoy, and get paid for it.
Well, I can honestly say the honeymoon is over. Had I been able to keep up the momentum of the first couple weeks of having Adsense on my site, I would have been okay. But……. that didn’t last. Now I see most days with a big fat 0.00. All I seem to be doing is creating ad impressions so that Google can make money. So, I’m back to doing this because I enjoy it. The money is trivial. I figured out that if I put this amount of effort in any number of other things, I’d earn FAAAAAR more.
I guess that’s enough ranting about not making any money at this. I’m still working on other posts, so keep your eye out for something new. I’ll be taking a short vacation later this week, so I may not be very active this week. I will be taking my wifi enabled laptop to see if I can pick up any signals where I’ll be. I’m heading to England in less than a month and am just praying I’ll find some signals over there. For the length of time I’ll be there, I’ll probably shrivel up and die if I can’t get online.
