Solving the Ad Sense Mystery

Greetings fellow humans,

Yes, I know, this blog has had cobwebs all over. Well, blame Bubblews because I found that I can actually get paid for my drivel there. Since my Ad Sense account disappeared over two years ago (without having ever really earned anything in the five years or so I have been on here), I was not going to waste time with a useless blog. Plus, I was earning residuals on a couple of other sites.

Alas, those sites have now given up the ghost. So, I decided to revive this blog and turn it into a more professional website for showcasing my hundreds of articles, which were previously published on said platforms. I figured even with Ad Sense gone, I could use the blog to hopefully land writing assignments.

Well, while clicking around here and there, I found out why I no longer had Ad Sense: They had sent me  PIN through snail mail over two years ago. Alas, the address on file was about four years outdated. And there you have it. Since I never received the pin, I had my account in stasis. It would have been nice had they notified me by email that they sent a PIN.

Also, I somehow show a balance of $14 and change there. How that happened, I do not know, but I'll take it. Even if payout is not until I reach $100. Times are tough in the online writing world (and the world in general), so I will have to do what it takes.

Anyway, I updated my address and requested a new PIN. It says to give it 2 to 4 weeks time, so keep all appendages crossed, please.

Notification would've been nice.
Good to hear from you though! Hope you'll post here regardless of Ad Sense.
