‘Cause Ads don’t make you rich

publishing.pngAt least, not if you’re anywhere my level of internet famous.

Google AdSense is currently cutting my first – yes first – check since I signed up for the program in… something like 2005. Maybe 2006. The earliest record it has archived is 2007.

Which means I’ve earned a grand total of just over $100.

Mind you, I don’t plaster ads all over the place – in fact, I removed them from this blog and never had them on the homeschool resource blog – but it does kind of reinforce that ads have rarely been an effective “get-rich-quick” sort of thing.

Keep in mind that lots of people have ad-blockers as well, and I think it becomes obvious that simply running generic “ads” isn’t a viable way of supporting your writing or publishing business.

If you’ve had better (or even worse) results, tell us about it in the comments.
