Ads... take 'em or leave them?

I've decided to put a few more adsense codes onto the blog. Mostly because people keep asking me how much money I make from this fine blog. The answer is Nada (after about 3 years of adsense on my blog I am up to 30 bucks... and you can't even cash in, I think, until you reach 50 bucks)... but I know that there's a lot of people out there who really DO want to make money from their blog, and I'd like to help them if that's possible...

Frankly, I think you can only make money if you find a niche, and you write every day and you're amazing. I can't be any of those things right now, but I kind of want to verify that by putting up all that google things I should.

Anyway, if you hate them -- now 's the time to let me know. I might be able to modify it to make you happier. I do know that the google search bar to the right (I recently added one where you could search the blog, which is actually fairly helpful when you're looking up a certain topic -- I'm not talking about that one -- I'm talking about the one where you can search the web) might be helpful. It will mostly come-up with google searches that I've defined. My key words were things like nurse, moms, children, labor, photography. Really cool stuff like that. :)

Anyway -- just thought I'd give my readers a say. :)


  1. I just have to say that I really love your blog Hilary. I know I've talked to you before, but I just want you to know how much I value my time to come downstairs while my kids are at school to give myself some entertainment. You've said so many thing that I've felt the same way about. You've mentioned things that I never knew about and was glad that you brought it to my attention. I can't begin to thank you for all the things "medical" that you talk about that have helped me so much. I know a while ago that you were thinking twice about continuing your blog. I understand if you can't because of being so busy w/the new baby and all. I for one would really miss your witty, honest and wonderful words to live by day after day. Just wanted to say thank you for doing what you do. You put a smile on my face, most days, and make me think every day. I appreciate the work you put into it. Thanks again.


  2. It's actually 100 dollars before you get paid. Sigh. I have just gotten over 50 dollars and I figure 3 more years to get to 100 and then good-bye google ads.


    Leave 'em up. They don't bother me. Maybe I'll remember to click on them sometimes for you.
