My AdSense Got Banned

I got confirmation from Google AdSense today via email. My account has been banned/deleted. No more money making for me for a while. The email said that my account had something called "invalid clicks" and that I was a threat to AdSense advertisers' money. That's dumb. O well... They gave me a link to an appeal form, so I guess I'll just do that for now.

ummm.... thanks again guys.....

Juno Movie (PG-13) (and Goal Update)

I'm 104% against sex before marriage. Juno was not a movie that I thought I was going to enjoy at first. After seeing it, I can say I'm glad I went. I haven't been to see any movie lately these days that I can walk out of and say, "I liked that!" My parents had to forcefully make me go to see it because most movies I've seen lately are just a waste of time and money. I've found that it's a waste of time to go to movies nowadays because they are just filled with pure crap like on TV (but that's another story.) Sexual and racial jokes are not my thing. I think they're funny, but only because there isn't anything else left to laugh at these days. I've found Juno to be a one of a kind movie with hilarious, non-racial, non-sexual jokes.

The Juno movie is a must see for all teens and parents (anyone over the age of 12, hence the rating.) I loved it!

I think I'm purchasing the music soundtrack tonight. The music for this movie fit right in with the story, and if you listen to the lyrics, you'll definitely find it hard not to start busting out in laugher. I want to learn all of the lyrics to each one of the songs that were in that movie, right now.

Juno is a one of a kind movie. Anyone who likes a good laugh should go see it. If you don't see this movie, you're crazy! ;)

Thanks for the support today. I'm now at a total of $17.10 now with another huge $4.57 for today. Thanks for clickin'!

Day Closing

Today is over. I think I'm doing good with my goal. I'm $12.03 closer to my goal. My Adsense CTR is ridiculously high, and I don't know what I did. Thanks to anyone who helped make that happen. I've got to start working on my homework now, but check out what I was working on all night at DigiJuice.wordpress.com. That site is definitely coming along a lot better than I thought. All I need is some AdSense added to it.

Thanks again everyone, for your generous support!

Props to the Person/People Who Came and Clicked

Today, I about had a heart attack when I logged on to my AdSense account after school. For the past few days, I've been habitually getting onto my AdSense account, at school and at home.

I almost broke my laptop, which was on my lap at the time when I jumped up and screamed, "I just made $6.57 on my website today!" Nobody in my household would listen to me, so I finished my post on "AdSense - How Average People Can Make Big Money Online" and posted about this huge progression I've made toward my goal ($6.57 is way better than yesterday's $.36).

So thanks to whoever came on to my blog and gave me 800% CTR on my AdSense today. It means a lot, whether you knew what you were doing for me or not.

AdSense is definitely one of the best internet tools ever created.

Fox 59 at My School!

On my way to the media center at my school today, I saw a guy with a HUGE camera on his shoulder. It was a professional reporting team. It didn't exactly register with me right away. I was almost to my destination when I turned around to take another look. My school's assistant principal, short in comparison, is standing next to this really good looking (to say the least), blonde reporter.

I squinted to see the emblem on the woman's coat. It read Fox 59 News. I couldn't believe it! The news, the REAL news, is at my school. I quietly got on the school's computer and started hacking away at the keyboard...

I heard something about some thing that happened somewhere with a bunch of guys, a bat, and broken bones. There's been word going around that two students in my school had gotten into some kind of fight with a bunch of other guys from another school. I heard there was a bat and fist throwing involved, and that's all I know so far. I'll keep you posted. Maybe I'll see something on TV or fox59.com tonight. Who knows...

Money Goal for the Summer of 2008

I have a problem. My situation is this: I have to make an extra $120 a week this upcoming summer of 2008. That's approximately $17 a day, $480 a month, or $1,200 over the course of my whole summer. My parents have given me two options for accomplishing this:

  • Take a part time job at my mother's work doing odd jobs (work that will limit me to doing things by their rules and not my own) in a factory where every kid would love to spend his summer hearing the sweet sound of different metals clashing together, breathing in that summer-like, factory-fresh air. Doesn't that just make you want to cry? It does me. :*(
  • Second option, find a job of my choice.
Normally, I'm not a lazy person. I have a HUGE list of student activities and community involvement things that I'm apart of. This will definitely look good on a college resume someday. All of this work gets tiring, which is one reason why I like to look forward to relaxing on my summer. I'm always going during the in-school season, and I just like to slow down a bit in the summer. Even in kindergarten, I could grasp this idea of summer. I would look forward to going over to my cousin's house to sleep over and play "T" rated video games (which I wasn't capable of owning until my uncle gave me $50 to purchase my first gaming system, a used N64.) Right now though, I need money for college which coming up soon, and this is why my parents are making me get a job. They're always looking for what will be in my best interest for my future.

The bottom line is this; I need to find a way to make money and find it fast. My only problem is that I don't want to do this by having an actual job with a boss and everything. I already have one of those working six hours a day two days a week, but for some reason, it's not enough to my parents. Go figure. I'm 16 for gosh sakes!

After taking all of this in and searching on the internet for a couple of days, I think I've found my gateway to the money I'm searching for, and it's not either of the two options that I've been so graciously given. Wonder how my parents will react to what I've done this time. :o
