With Google's black box control of AdSense, being a conservative blogger with 8+ years of frequent posts, nearly 1.5 million page views as of today you'd think I'd have made more than $300 from this blog via AdSense. Nope. There's no issues so far as AdSense has found. Granted I haven't invested in SEO optimization but with only $300 in revenue, why would I? It would remove eight years of paltry profits with one attempt.
So I've decided to try a different route. Today I joined Patreon. If you like my content you can donate at your leisure. There's a link in the upper right of this blog. And of course don't forget to refer your friends. If this goes reasonably well, I might try to purchase some production software and make the jump to a Youtube vlog and producing some videos.
