$1000 bucks and counting

So this blog has crossed the $1000 mark so far this year.

That’s right, over $1000 has been earned so far year to date between Google AdSense and Amazon’s affiliate program.

Most of that money, more than $800, was made with AdSense and is going directly to the Grameen Foundation.

I find this encouraging on all sorts of levels.

But AdSense is still way too inefficient for me.

So I spent some time trying to fix it up a bit.

I’ve moved it back above the fold.

And I’ve changed the color scheme.

And I am going to go back to text only ads.

I may try some other things too.

My goal is to get AdSense to produce over $10/day, up from less than $4/day now, by year end.
