“I have a tendency not only to see the best in everyone, but to assume that everyone is emotionally capable of reaching his highest potential. I have fallen in love more times than I care to count with the highest potential of a man, rather than with the man himself, and I have hung on to the relationship for a long time (sometimes far too long) waiting for the man to ascend to his own greatness. Many times in romance I have been a victim of my own optimism.”

Blogging experience

Let me tell you what I like the most from my small blog. That it is so cool and I love it!
One of the reasons I started my blog was to see if I can make any money from the ads. Yes, I'm afraid this is true. This is how desperate I am about unemployment. Anyway, I read the ads policy and some of you may already know that you have to gather at least 70 Euros. Then Google sends you the money at the end of the next month and you feel rich. I would have felt rich anyway.
But I forgot a couple of little things such as that I have to make my blog famous (like Facebook famous) in order to have hundreds of followers and maybe then I would have a slight chance of making some money. To make a blog famous..... ahem.... not a clue how to do that and if I had a clue, it would take me months or even years to do so, right? Potential success needs hard work. Indeed. Also, I have so many thoughts in my mind trying to get out of there in the form of reasonable speech (and with a certain speed) or understandable writing that.... oh fuck it, it's a mess in there.
Therefore, after my earnings reached 6 or 7 or 10 Euros (in about a month), I don't really remember, I decided that I probably won't make a fortune out of it, for all the above and apparent reasons. Also, Google disabled my Ad Sense account because of "invalid clicks" which of course means that Google thinks I was stupid enough to click my own ads.
After that I got really bored with the whole ad thing, removed them, made my blog a pretty awesome little thing, I have 6 or 7 followers instead of Euros but it's ok (haha), I'm writing whatever comes to mind, joyful or miserable, getting feedback some times and you know what? I just love it this way. It's like having my own, cheaper, therapist. I'm not sure I could handle all the publicity after all =D
(I will remember all of you when I become famous =P)


  1. The other day I was reading about making the blog famous and getting some money out of it... But then, I decided to keep it simple and don't change anything about my blog. I just love it like it is =)

    And you're so right about the therapist! You've read my mind lol

  2. It would be nice to make a little bit on the side wouldn't it? ;-) Here's something a friend told me about but I've never tried.

    You take an expensive topic, like medicine or law or architecture. Then you research and write a few articles about these topics. Then you connect up with amazon who will place ads on your site according to your topic. All the books in these fields are most often expensive.

    If anyone does a search on these topics, and if they end up on your site, and if they happen to click on the amazon link and then happen to buy one of those books... well, in that situation you will receive a percentage of the sale which can add up.... but yes, I know, a lot of ifs lol... that's why I have't tried it myself ;-) xx

  3. Yup, a lot of ifs.... and I don't really know anything about expensive topics =p

  4. This is mostly the whole reason why I really got into the internet in hopes of being rich or famous. Then I realized how I never pay attention to any other ads on any site and asked myself, why would anyone else?

  5. Exactly. So. I guess we're left with the option of an actual job.

  6. Hmmm from my blog it looks like you have a new post titled something like "Test" - but when I clicked the link did the old - URL not found bit! :-( Blogspot is sometimes so frustrating! Anyway, I was able to make it to your home page but I still don't see the test post.... very strange! x

  7. It's ok I erased it! I was trying to make another page but it seems I will keep trying :p

  8. I don't know a single blogger who hasn't been banned from adsense. I haven't been officially banned yet but I did get an email from google saying that several of my posts contain inappropriate content. My ban is sure to come though, so I won't be making a dime off my blog!

    Of course they would say this when I am about $20.00 short of reaching that $100.00 threshold!
