Yeah, I did the same. Figured if I were blogging anyway, I'd might as well put up some small ads and get a few bucks. I started Google Ads 5 years ago, had them on 7 blogs. I'm up to $45 in my account after all that time... and they don't pay out until you reach $100. Which is why I switched to BlogHer, where I at least get a check a few times a year (albeit only about $30)
Jeeeez, I might have to look into this BlogHer thing. Is it hard to get into?
Good for you! I'll be sure to click around a bit. ;-)
