WordAds Were a Nightmare



Last year I had a huge dream! I wanted to make blogging a career so I started exploring options. Well, 90% of the options I got were affiliate marketing and I did not want to get into that. I had classes and work and family going on so I wanted the easiest option that would not add to my burdens.


The first thing I did was to upgrade my WordPress account (Yeah, I’m not doing that anymore haha). Not that it’s bad, but a friend of mine told me that it’s better to get some good following first. Otherwise, you would need a good plan on how to maximize the upgrade. A very good plan.
At that time, my views had already doubled up and I was more inspired than ever. I did the next foolish thing, I enabled WordAds! Those adverts didn’t disturb me at all. In fact, blogging was too normal for an upgraded plan. The issue was, you. After a while, I was worried for my readers. The feedback explained more than a nightmare.


You might be probably laughing at my ignorance right now but please hold, I have not yet told you the peak of it. One day, I went to check my earnings, then closed the page, then waited for the next month. I won’t talk much, I am a poet anyway. Let me share a screenshot so that you know how much I was worth.

Yaaaaaas. I earned Ksh5 🀣🀣🀣

    Are in Impoverished Countries to Find A Way
    Out of Poverty in those places Yet It’s True What

    Use is it to
    Waste Valuable
    Energy That Could
    Otherwise Be Used at
    Least For Creativity in
    Art to Strengthen Warmth
    of Human Connections that
    At Essence is the Key to Human
    Happiness…

    FOR
    REAL

    FOR REAL
    FOR REAL FOR REAL…

    Happy Not to be Part of
    that Other God Now For Real…
