Tea with AK71: First cheque from AdSense.

Sunday, January 30, 2011

Not long after I started this blog in December 2009, I signed up with Google AdSense to serve ads in the hope of making some pocket money on the side. A few months later, I took down all the ad spaces. This was after hearing rather negative stuff about bloggers being "banned" with little chance of being reinstated. I didn't want to have the same experience. Could be quite depressing, I thought.

However, a couple of months ago, while chatting with a fellow blogger, I was advised to just put up the ad spaces for AdSense again and if I did get banned, then, too bad for me. If I got paid, it would be a bonus. Mentally prepared thus, I ventured forth with AdSense once more.

Today, as I was sorting through four days worth of mail, I found a cheque from Adsense! My first cheque from AdSense! It added some cheer to a wet Sunday. :)

Hi SnOOpy168,

Thanks. Now that you put it that way, yes, it is like an early red packet. :)

133 is a nice number too. Sounds like "Day Rising Rising" in Cantonese. Hope it is a good omen for the stock market. ;p
