    What keywords are you even trying to get search results for? Your posts are indexed, but your structure is wrong. Go to your wordpress and go to settings and permalinks and have it set to custom and only %postname% so your pages don't end up like what they are now which is

    "http://andrewsthoughts.com/?p=56" etc, which says nothing about the post, it's bad for SEO :), Also, your posts are not really targeted for anything, there is not any on-page SEO per say. Try using the Easy WP SEO plugin to guide you to more correct on-page SEO~

    Lastly, you have no meta keywords/description[you have default first sentence] so your on-page SEO is very poor overall, it's no wonder you are getting no search engine traffic :)

    Hope that helps!

    Your blog looks so dull, no images, no headings, nothing.

    The first thing your blog needs desperately is On-page optimization.

    You blog has very few indexed pages (6 pages). You need more quality backlinks.

    As far as Adsense is concerned, its very difficult to get through Adsense... My blog almost took 6 months to get Adsense approval.

    So, first you optimize your blog for high traffic and then try getting Adsense approval.
