Well time for a bit of a warble.
It really is a most time consuming and frustrating thing this blog writing lark if I am honest, well at least over and my other blogs. It never occurred to me that any monies could be made from blogging and in fact I could never see myself as a blogger in all honesty.
But I started it because I thought I could help others and that is the only reason plus it acted as an easy back up that I could point people to it as a form of evidence all in one place. No email replies stating that they cannot accept attachments and all manner of other excuses. They always have an excuse for their many, many mistakes but if you make any you must be a liar, benefit of the doubt does not exist within their vocabularies.
Still I am at least happy they did a U-Turn in the space of 48 hours and while out today feeling the warm sunlight and perspiring to my complete surprise at least that is not on my mind. One this is though and that is the council who seem to know ever single time my benefit has been altered or stopped before I even do?! Well if they get notified that is has stopped it stands to reason that they get notified when it is re-instated. If this proves NOT to be the case I will rail-road them if my money fails to turn up and complain rather strongly that this notification procedure that exists is one way traffic and designed as such!!
While traversing this pinball machine of tricks and traps I still try to increase the content of my 12 blogs (not including this one) and my YouTube account. My head would spin trying to estimate how much data I have amassed online and its only a fraction of all that I have collected. It numbers in the many tens of Gigabytes that is for sure.
The troublee with content is that it does not come free, but then what really does? Well other than the obvious answer right now which is labour but we will not get into that, lmao. I have used a smart-phone and its camera, I have then purchased a Nikon Compact Zoom camera and now an Olympus Super Zoom camera with stabilising features. I have gone through two laptops. I have travelled many miles on my bike to capture photos and videos and still am and will be doing tomorrow. Of course the corruption blog expands too and things turn up that were not expected, like a short version of my medical records which is all wrong and has vital omissions. An obvious cover up there then!
But after a time there is only so much you can write about with what you have to hand. Likewise with other subjects there is only so much you can acquire and write about with local things before you ran out of content. This can happen to me within a few weeks but more likely to be a couple of months. After that you have to SPEND MORE MONEY!
The odd thin is that I have spent 8 months or more doing this and much stuff I already had to hand anyway. So in a few weeks when I can see the end of the road and I look at the current total on my Adsense account after 1500 posts and 500 videos and ask myself when am I ever going to receive my first £60 and I will find myself in a predicament. AFter a year of doing this work and all the free advertising Google could ever want and I have hit an obstacle that because of what it is that they do and get up to I am now unable to IMPROVE the things I provide or the services that I do?!
I was thinking about this as I was out today. Due to the sole of my shoes coming apart, destroyed from the dreadful cold and wet winter we have had I had to go and buy a new pair f trainers. Due to the foot conditions I have I have been told my several physios over th years to go and buy the running shoes that they are wearing. I ask hw much they paid and even ten years ago the answer was £130?! I reply that this is the same amount I get a fortnight to LIVE ON and tat I would BAULK at paying out that kind of money. Ten years later and I know I should be buying the £100 Asics and the gel soles are nice ad spongy and seem perfect, only seem mind as I have never bought them, for my painful heels but I ended up buying a pair for £35 and think this is too much?! I tell the sales girl in Sports Direct I will come back in a few weeks and buy the Asics and then I say ‘mind you I told someone that LAST year…and the year before that…and the year before that too!!’
I tell myself that this time it will be different. I tell myself that surely and even IF they are deliberately screwing me like they seem to be misleading everyone that they cannot continue to do this as surely even the most naive people would cotton on eventually?! I pay for my Nike Air Trainers and would down the stairs chuckling to myself that after 8 months of hard work I have not even made enough to buy the cheap trainers I should not even be buying?! LMAO.
Of course then I think about the Computing blog and there are many things I want to do that I can cover on both the blog as well as on YouTube! But this cannot happen until a monthly amount is being received though it does not even have to be big. I remember that the last few days I suddenly realised that the turn of the months is going to be disappointing due to the figures I am presented with. Quite literally thousands upon thousands have visited my blogs and yet I have not managed to acquire a single click. I remember the conversation I had 6 months ago with a mat of mine and we had decided that I would need around 10,000 visitors to be getting money regular and yet I have amassed around 17,000 and I am not even close and at this exact point in time have not made 10% of the £60 needed to initiate my first payment?!
I also think about the fact I have basically put several year work into it thinking it would speed things up somewhat?! Nope. Then I think well if not maybe it will mean that once it builds up enough to make money and I could then LEAVE IT ALONE and it would STILL CONTINUE to build to reach that equivalent time I have put into it?! Somehow I think this will not be the case but it occurs to me that with all this content and years of work that these ‘years’ must come into the equation SOMEWHERE?! I am also remembering how the fact thatr the amount of content and differing subject matters as well as keywords, tags and even the use of LATIN should be getting my blogs noticed to a great many people they would appeal to but the only amount I have to go on to tell me that answer is the currently earned amount and its a fiver, lol.
But I know that this cannot continue and I know that the further this goes on the wider the gap becomes between my visitors, at least the ones I am told about, and the money earned. AT the end of the day the wider this gap gets the harder it is for people to ignore and this also includes the most naive of people. Even so I know that even with the cheating they have to pay eventually otherwise and in a mere matter of a couple of weeks to a couple of months the figures are going to look quite obviously bad to everyone.
I wonder at what point I will have someone take action to directly contact me about this and who it may be?! Journalists must take interest at some point, after all this is GOOGLE we are talking about here?! Like eveything else in this country and indeed the world…everything and everyone takes forever to do anything but all want paying six figures sums to take forever to do anything, lmao.
Me? I have a hard enough time trying to stay IN The house to rest myself as the thought of staying in drives me nuts and I want to go OUT and do SOMETHING, despite my aches, pains and many ailments.
Oh but wait a moment! I am the lazy one who is a sponger on society who wants to sit on my backside all day doing nothing?
NOTHING could be further form the truth! But I am being actively restricted from doing this from just about every single organisation you could ever dream of, lol.
