Apparently I Am Now Offering a Public Service

Sharing is caring!

I finally did it. After a couple weeks of debating, I joined Google Adsense. After decades of being annoyed by ads on webpages, and trying my best to avoid spam of all sorts, there are now ads on this blog.

This saddened me greatly.

After refreshing my page to see how much damage was caused, I saw batteries for sale.


Google Adsense promised ads that were relevant to the posts. So, I spent time skipping all our entries. No batteries. No electronics. No Energizer bunny telling me to just keep swimming (I may be mixing slogans.)

I came back later via mobile. It asked me if I have trouble caring for my aunt, if my wife was cheating on me, and if I wanted to cheat my credit score. Then, if that wasn’t bad enough, it left me an ad for slot machines to wallow in my despair after I find out my wife has a body builder guy named Jacque on the side.

This is Jacque

Thank you Google Adsense for ruining my marriage and giving me a new addiction.

That being said, a friend of mine, Author of Drop in the Bucket, said I just need to learn how to frame it. It’s okay to earn money off your passion. Everyone needs batteries. I’m just offering you all a public service.

So here I am, on the road to divorce, but at least I can earn cash off the new ads.

PS: My wife wants me to inform you there is no man named Jacque. And we’re happily married.

You hear that Jacque? She chose the better man. Don’t hurt me.

    Well done! At least the income earned from your ads will keep your wife and Jacque living in style after the divorce! Only kidding. Well done, I hope you reap the benefits of this decision to go pro.

    Just wanted to add that the ads aren’t too distracting, so there is nothing much to worry about there.

    If only I could post photos as comments. I mean really, one of the ads says “Cheaters Beware!” But seriously though there’s no Jacque.

    This post really made me laugh, thank you so much!! I’ve never read a funny approach to Adsense.

    It’s okay though because I always need batteries 🙂 although I didn’t get the battery one, I seem to need a job at Aldi – maybe it knows something I don’t know.

    I hope that you get some good reward from it. I’m also very interested to hear how it goes. You could add in a monthly audit of all the strange adverts you had – I would definitely read that again.

      I may do that. It still wants to know how my aunt is doing at the moment. I have to call her to check in from time to time in case Google knows something I don’t.

    Now I may have to look into AdSense.
