    It has taken rather a long time but I have finally reached the payout threshold for adsense!

    Started my first blog in 2011, hadn't got a clue much like now! Did no research, never gave keywords or optimisation a second thought.

    The blog has been running for 4 years, CPC was painfully low but I didn't want to get rid of it because, well it was my first attempt.

    Tried with a couple of other niches and tried to kid myself that I know better since but each attempt has fell flat. I'm still not giving up though!!

    Just logged into adsense and even with my 0.02-0.05p per click I have finally reached the payout threshold of.......

    wait for it........

    £60 (UK) Approx $91

    What should I do with my new found wealth??:D

    Somehow I don't associate fiverr with quality.

    I wouldn't even bother with this site. It's not worth the hassle and it's only on blogger (didn't have a clue about wordpress back then)
