Adsense + latest doings

Do I need an extra £35 a week, well frankly ......YES
According to a box that has appeared on my dashboard page my blog now qualifies for having ads and I could earn up to £35 a week ( subject to traffic) by joining "hundreds of other bloggers making money through Adsense"
Will I be doing this...............NO, although I can see the attraction, but it's not a way I want to earn money.
Does anyone with ads actually earn that much?


When we move to the cottage we will be halfway between 2 towns for shopping, Stowmarket and Diss although we've not been to either for a while. We know both well so maybe we'll alternate. As we'd not been far this week a trip out of Ipswich to Stowmarket was taken . We parked at Asda and over the hedge there was a huge crane/ digger/machine thing just starting to demolish a lovely big house that's stood there for years, in fact while I was at Grammar school in the town it was where the headmaster lived. By the time we had walked around the town  and got back to the car the house was gone - blimey. I expect next time we go to town it will have been replaced by a dozen new houses.
 As usual we looked in all the charity shops and Col got himself another warm work shirt which he likes over a t-shirt for winter for £2.99. We walked down the street and at the menswear shop similar were on a rack in the doorway for £16. Then we  bumped into someone we knew from way back when we lived in that area.
  I found these in The Works,  to finish some Christmas cards I'm stitching..............for next year!


I'm in cross stitch mood at the moment- so getting ahead in case I don't get in the right mood again and thought £1 wasn't too much of a crime in my No/Low spend month.



November spending £527 + Shirt £3+Craft stuff £1+Pharmacy £1+Veg and Store-cupboard food £8=£540

December spending will be MUCH more as apart from the cash presents for our 3 and their OH's, 2 nephews and a niece, there will be a large electric/ gas bill because the last one was estimated low, plus  car insurance. Oh dear.

Back Soon
Sue

  1. I dislike blogs that run ads, sometimes they take ages to load so I give up we are not on the fastest of internet speeds, they dont half demolish those houses I suppose its better than just standing empty and inviting trouble.

  2. I don't like ads either...they get in the way and as soon as you touch one it takes you off somewhere you don't want to be! x

  4. Orbit Housing (who have an office next door) have purchased the land to build supported housing for people with learning difficulties.
    They put a building up in their car park as well - not really sure where the staff park!!

  5. I had adverts on my blog, very briefly many years ago, and for the pennies I made it was not worth the hassle of them flashing on my posts annoying me and no doubt any readers. As Dawn has said it also means that your blog can't load as quickly.

    I rarely bother to click on the blogs that I know have lots of adverts as I just haven't the patience to wait for them to load or to stop jumping around as things do load in their own time.

    I always think it's sad to see a house being demolished.

    1. It was a lovely house until what was a sports ground behind it turned into Asda about 25 or so years ago!

  6. I suppose it would make your blog slower to load but you are a very interesting and popular blogger and if you could make a reasonable monthly amount from it, it would be worth a go, perhaps ? I know I would read you no matter what.........you have a wonderful positive, can do attitude and you don't make others feel bad. I hope your move goes smoothly and the tiny bungalow sells PRONTO.

    All the best and thanks for writing such a great blog.

  7. I decided to have my own blog, Sue, last August. I'm at www.margaretpowling.com. It's called Devon Dreaming, but my computer man set it up for me and somehow it doesn't go under the title but my name. Today. Never mind, people are gradually finding it. But I paid for this blog, it wasn't a free one, so that I had total control over it, and there are no, absolutely no, pop up ads. I didn't want them, they annoy me on other people's blogs and I certainly didn't want them on my own. Our local weekly paper has a website and the pop up blogs are a real nuisance, you can be reading something and then that disappears and a whole page advert will kick start and you have a right old game trying to get rid of it.
    Oh, I do hope your move goes according to plan and as Rinty says, you have a great blog.

  8. PS I don't know why the word "Today" popped up in my comment, Sue. Oh dear, my fingers and my brain aren't synchronized!

  9. I did Adsense for awhile but got rid of it. There were ads that were not good as well. I'm purging papers today to go into recycle bin tonight. Trying to get things better for Christmas as the tree needs a spot to be by the door. I didn't do black friday shopping at all. Lots of interstate traffic because of the outlet mall close to our area! So thankful I don't work there any more and we do know the back roads. Happy days!

  10. To me adding ads to my blog would not be worth it. I love blogs that are clear and ad free. I don't click on any that I find anyway.

    God bless.

  11. I never read ads and the little video ones just annoy me. I used to live in Diss and the shopping was fairly good but the traffic on Victoria road was horrendous.
    I think that Stowmarket would be a good choice, I often shopped there.

  12. Using adsense is pretty much in direct opposition to what my blog is about. I am trying to get folks to STOP spending money, not encourage them to spend via ads on my site - too much incongruity (for me).

  13. I am the same as Mr Home Maker, it would be hypocritical of me to have adverts. My blog is about making the most of the money I have, not about making more.

    I also don't read blogs with sponsored posts, and post that have hidden links in them. The writer might say it's sponsored, then say it's all my own words. Tosh, I say. If you are being paid you will say anything.

  14. I don't mind some ads but sometimes blogs are so ad-intensive I have trouble reading them anymore. My poor old computer (not that old but not fast) has trouble with all the loading of the ads. I used to love the Taste of Home cooking website but find it really slow now I don't bother.

    I think the last time I was in Stowmarket was when I took my kids to the Museum of East Anglian Life. They had such a great time.

  15. There is an Aldi, Tesco and Morrisons in Diss now. Rather a lot for such a small town, it makes me wonder about the small shops. I love the small yards off St Nicholas Street, some really interesting little shops. A real pity that if people are driving through all they see is horrible, congested Victoria Road.
