So last year when I started posting How To Videos on Youtube and through my site; http://RicksDIY.com I also decided to ad the banner through adsense. Thinking it might give me a few bucks but not really much to think about...well for the most part I didn't post too many videos and fell out of it for awhile.

Last week I got an email from Google Adsense asking me to finish the the payment process..basically my tax info for my business and I was surprised to see that they were sending me a check for $240...

May not be much for some, but for not really doing anything it was a huge surprise and has motivated me to do allot more videos and really push the site this year.

$240 is infinitely more than $0.

had to wait 6 months to break the 100 dollar limit and get my first adsense check now its easily cracking the 100 a month and aroudn 150 plus another hundred from amazon.  its not enough to live on obviously but just seeing a check seems to boost the motivation.  My ebook on how to write a resume for security contracting seems to be picking up as well which is nice, the ebook route seems to be very rewarding as once your done...your done other than updates every few months when new information becomes available...but its very passive and you just sit there and get an email every so often letting you know someone bought the book!
