as I was saying...
A while back (January of this year in fact) I decided to put Google ads on my blog. I am a regular reader of a couple of blogs that have Google ads and I figured, why not? We'll see where this goes...
I think Nick's Gypsy Journal
do the ad thing well and I hardly notice it when I am reading their posts.
I tweak around with some things on the Roadrunner Chronicles in an effort to learn and try to learn new things. I logged on to Google Accounts, clicked on 'AdSense' and set up an account.
Then I watched from month to month as my account grew in small increments.
We get our mail sent to us periodically from Alternative Resources in South Dakota. We took delivery a couple of days ago and to our surprise and delight ~ we had a check from Google for $100.58!
Our next challenge was how to deposit this since we no longer have a local bank. I remembered seeing Adam deposit his checks using his iPhone. Our bank - USAA - has an iPhone app. On the back, I signed it, wrote: FOR DEPOSIT ONLY; and listed my account number.
The screen indicated the amount was deposited in my USAA checking account. I verified it by logging on and sure enough ~ it was deposited. Sure enough ~ there it was!
Needless to say, I was pretty excited about getting and being able to deposit Google dollars!
Next time you read someone's blog and they have some ads, you might want click on a few and who knows, before too long ~ they may be getting a $100 in the mail! For the hundreds of you that did that for us --- Thank you!!
And thank you for joining us today (on the second edition) of the Roadrunner Chronicles! And thanks to Mary Ann, Mac, George, Kimberly/Jerry, Rick and Rod for leaving comments on my first attempt today...
Merry Christmas to all!
