Another financial related item that I meant to mention on my last post is that I decided to take down and withdraw from Google Adsense. I've been watching my Adsense account and it might be up to about $15! I read a while back on the FAQs of Adsense that one doesn't get paid until the account reaches $100. Seriously? At 1cent a click through, it might reach that in let's say........7 years! I'm not a huge ModCloth fan. Instead of vintage inspired, I'd just prefer to have the real thing. I noticed that some of my google ads were for ModCloth; obviously not all; but some. It got me to thinking, why should I have to wait to get paid by Adsense? I'm sure they don't wait to get paid by the advertisers placed on my site. So why should these companies benefit from my creativity, my content, and my blog when I can't even get paid from those benefits any time soon? Would I let any advertiser place ads on my site and then set the terms of what they placed, when they placed and how and when they would pay me? Then why am I allowing that from Google. I just decided to pass. If I never make a dime off my blog (and frankly, that's not why I'm blogging) then that's cool. But as Gary Cooper said in The Fountainhead, his ideas are his property. My blog may be humble, but my imagination is fertile and verdant and it's too "Serene", too distinctly ME for me to sell it off for a penny a click.
