While I was home at the weekend I opened a letter from Google giving me a pin to activate my AdSense account.
Having activated it, I can see that I’ve made a total of about £8 on my YouTube channel and I’ve put adverts on this blog too, on the off chance I can make some money from it! I don’t get any of the money until it reaches £10 but I wanted to talk about it so I wouldn’t just shove ads on this blog without explaining it.
I’m not going to make sufficient money off this to buy food or anything, I know that – my expectations are zero – but on the off chance you could click on a couple of ads just bear in mind that it might help me out.
After Christmas I’m going to get a job in Southampton and somehow balance uni, dance, friends, boyfriend and a job (I’m not nervous about it at all…) so I’m not expecting my blog and my YouTube to be able to fund me through university (though it would be lovely if it could). It’s hard to justify doing it if I’m not expecting anything from it.
Because if I’m not expecting anything from it why should I do it? If I don’t think I’m going to make any money why should I do it at all? Because it is a little money and I love blogging and making YouTube videos – if it could make enough money I would love to do it for a living but I don’t want to say that I’m good enough or engaging enough for that because right now, I’ve not got the audience.
I just wanted to explain it. I have ads on my blog now, if you could click them that would be fabulous but I’d rather you read and enjoyed what I’m writing, maybe share it with friends and family and other people but primarily; enjoy what I’m creating for you.
Nearing the end of the year is starting to make me think about a lot of stuff – things ending, I’m taking on a lot right now and I’m busy and overwhelmed but ready for 2016.
We’ll see what happens.
Thank you for reading,
That’s where you’ll find me:
