    For the past month or so I've been working on several of my blogs, doing seo upgrades, keyword targeting, etc. nothing black hat, and it has paid off. I've gone from making about $2 a day from adsense to $35 a day consistently, and that's not my only monetization model.

    But, now that I've started to grab some success I find that I'm kind freaking out. I keep thinking of what if, what if Big G deindexes my sites (my traffic is all organic), what if adsense looks at this big gain in revenues and thinks there must be something black hat going on and kills my account... What if (add some bad scenario here)...:confused:

    Anyone else have this kind of issue when they first started hitting it hard? I've been working trying to break into the blogging world for a little over a year now, and I think I've finally hit my stride, but now its like I'm afraid its not real...

    Is this kind of normal, or do I need to just enjoy the ride, keep building, and hopefully keep improving and making more of this so called easy money?:D

    Just keep on keeping on. Sometimes a certain degree of success can be exhilarating and yes . . . even a bit scary. But keep pushing forward anyway.

    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

    Thanks for the quote, it is true that nearly every regret I have is from what I didn't do, rather than the things I did do.

    It is that simple: Your efforts are rewarded. Congrats for your progress.
