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...

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.

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!
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.
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."
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".

"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 :)

sorry for taking this thread somewhat away....
may be this thread may be moved to FOO
but you have to reconsider after his adsense account terminated by the google for invalid clicks
caution for those who posted in this thread may be your wife can make your access rights to her as READ ONLY and no WRITE ACCESS

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

Some people may think you come across as incredibly selfish and self-centered.
Ive a brother that sells computer hardware on Ebay without his wife knowing, I tell you its like being at home when we were kids hiding things from your parents.
