(Ad)Sense and Comment-ability

I stayed away from blogging for many years since first signing up on blogsites. For fear of not being read. For fear of not being any different from the billion blogs cramming cyberspace. For fear of simply vanishing. Or worse yet, being found and dispensed with!

Which is exactly what happened finally. I get comments commenting on the utter lack of comments on any of my posts! From an alleged friend. Well, as he/she said, that's what friends are for. To protect you from the ignonimity of being yourself before the whole world finds out!!

While I contemplate options before me, to create multiple fake id's to leave comments here or make this blog "by invitation only", I wanted to take a last chance. For those who may not know, there is a little link at the end of each post that says "0 comments". Click on that to leave comments about what you liked/disliked in each post.

While you are at it, please click repeatedly on the Google Ad next to the post as well. It will help me buy diapers for Bumpy!

I cannot stop smiling....U almost compelled me to leave a comment. Nice write-up. By the way, are u serious about the Google Ad. I mean do they pay u? Wishing Bumpy a safe arrival. I know her/him thru Mama Mia. Good luck!!!

Gee, thanks Faiyaz. As for Google Ads, I am currently at 1 click. So till people come together and go click-click, we won't really know if Google is serious about the "Bumpy Education Fund", will we?

Keep RRCing :-)

I'm a little late to the comments game, but what the hell!

I haven't made a single cent off Google Ads, the reason is the same as yours - 7 clicks maybe?

The main trouble with Google Ads, despite their hype about being Google's revenue engine, is that they are so irrelevant. Not only irrelevant to the context, but also that they link to placeholder websites, pretty obvious spam/scam offers and other useless information.

If the Google Ad served on my page was as relevant as the Google Ads on a "search" result, I am sure it would be used more and get us more moolah!
