Adsense

Google is pretty brilliant. They tell you to put AdSense on your site and that with little effort you can earn a decent amount of cash. I wasn't expecting an overnight success here but I thought it would be fun to receive a check every other month for a few odd cents.

Well it turns out they don't pay you till you earn your first $100, and after that it's a regular monthly pay cycle. It may take a few years but dag nabbit I am determined to hang in there till I get my first $100. It's not about the money it's the principle of the thing. I guess on another level it will be kind of fun to see how long it takes me to get paid considering I spend about an hour a day on the site.

It's quite funny I'm pretty sure all 5 of the times my ads have been clicked, it was done by friends just clicking to help me out.

Oh don't worry - I have a blog that has had a few articles posted to places like reddit. I put some adsense on it a while ago to see if I would actually bring anything in.

To date (and it's been up there for a few months at least), I have made $0.00

Depending on what your site is all about, and whether or not you'd actually like to delve into putting ads on your site for money, http://www.projectwonderful.com/ has lots of good stuff said about it. Most of the sites advertised on it aren't obnoxious either - they seem rather non-evil for an online advertising company.
