I actually have given up on Adsense and just focus on blogging for the love of it. Besides, aside from Adsense, there are still many ways to earn from blogging.
Until I discovered niche blogging, SEO and social media and started to create new blogs for experiment. That is when my Adsense earnings started to rise. The amount are not huge but it is great improvement from my previous zero earnings.
And last November is a momentous event for my blogs because finally, I hit the USD100 required amount for payment in Google Adsense. My earnings hit USD100 in November and I was able to withdraw my earnings thru Western Union in December.
It was really nice to earn from doing something you love. I hope to receive my next Google Adsense payment soon.
