Argh! Let me spend my money!

I relaunched by site in January with 250 new articles (I had 50 articles before), better SEO, and better adsense placement. Because of this work my monthly adsense revenue rose from high $XX/month to high $XXX/month.

This is great news for my hobby site and I'm very happy, but I have ran into a problem. Back when I was making very little a month, the wife never took notice of my earnings. This gave me a nice stash of cash to blow on geeky things, like a new version of photoshop and a digital camera.

However, now my adsense earnings have risen to a point that is has been detected by my wife's monetary radar. Now my March check has already been alotted towards boring stuff like graduate school applications ($100 a pop... sheesh...).

I'm itching to buy a new laptop with my March check, but it would be hard to get it past the wife. Arrrgghh, the curse of success...

OK, tell her you MUST buy the laptop with the AdSense money in order to write it off as an expense at the end of the year on your taxes.

If she doesn't buy that reason, sell her on eBay and get an HDTV with the proceeds.

Look at it this way: How can you (or she) go to grad school without an adequate laptop? :-)

Dear Europeforvisitors,

I generally find your post to be insightful, articulate and well thought out, however your recent post left me with my jaw on the floor.

Our friend wants the laptop, not his wife!

If he were to use your suggestion, she might take that to mean SHE should be using it.

Egad, protocol has been breeched.

Goober

LOL.... happened at our house too.

I did manage to get a new Nikon D70 and some accessories for it last spring before my wife caught on. I think buying the camera blew my cover!

Give your wife a quarterly Profit and Loss Statement. Adsense = turnover. Geeky things = business expense.

[ Give your wife a quarterly Profit and Loss Statement. Adsense = turnover. Geeky things = business expense ]

My wife just told me she wants to visit Rom in Italy.

I told her how expensive all the toll on the Italian highways is.

She answered: We take enough time that You can make a lot of photos, some nice pages about Rom, so all the journey is business expenses.

The effect of wives on adsense earnings is a matter of great import. For one thing, it reduces your take. Secondly, in some cases, it provides a disincentive to the goal of trying to work harder to make more money. It's very reminiscent of the tax system...you begin to start pondering how things can be "hidden" or "downplayed".

wife to husband: "what did you make yesterday?"
husband to wife: "Two dollars. Epc has crashed. Looks permanent this time. Sigh."
wife to husband: "Don't be upset. It was nice while it lasted"
husband to wife: "Yeah, these things are never guaranteed. I'll just have to live with it I guess."

afterwards:
1. husband maintains that daily earnings are never more than two dollars.
2. when questioned by wife about newly purchased items like digital camcorders and laptops, husbands maintains that such items have been put "on a payment plan".

My wife has only made one rather astute observation about my AdSense money:

"Are you setting aside any of that money for taxes? If not, we're gonna be screwed!"

Also, she's now looking for a topic to start her own little money maker :)

but you have to reconsider after his adsense account terminated by the google for invalid clicks

"Just make sure she comes with COOKING 2.2 and CLEANING 1.3 installed"

And be sure to consider a replacement warranty. That's really important for later.

And you would prefer it didn't get detected? In some partnerships that would be considered deceit.

nice stash of cash to blow on geeky things
a new version of photoshop and a digital camera

I'm itching to buy a new laptop

Some people may think you come across as incredibly selfish and self-centered.

But most are smart enough to not judge me from 100 words on an internet forum. Which one are you oddsod?
