The Gifted Blog

May 27, 2010


That's the amount that was deposited into my bank account yesterday by Google AdSense. Whoo hoo! As you may know, I switched blog hosts last December to experiment with running ads on The Gifted Blog. With all the heart, sweat and tears that go into this endeavor, I wanted to see if I could turn this passion into an income stream.

And it is! Well, it's an income creek, perhaps. An income trickle. Making $100 over the course of 6 months is a modest - but still exciting - accomplishment for me. (AdSense sets $100 as a payment threshold, meaning you can't get cut a check until you've earned at least that amount.)

So, what should I do with the money? Seeing C.'s and beautifuliving's gifts makes me want to splurge on some beautiful wrapping paper (like these gorgeous ones from Egg Press, above). What do you think? What would you do if you had $100 to spend on The Gifted Blog?
