Apparently I Am Now Offering a Public Service
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.
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.
