Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Now some of you folks are "old friends" in more than one way. But in respect of the age thing: Give me your numbers please. What is the age of the Adsenser? Who thinks he or she is the youngest or perhaps the oldest Adsenser?
And Ann, I know that these numbers don't matter so much for the lucky ones who feel 20 years young regardless of their age...

I say go for it! Now is the best time. Don't give it up if you're enjoying it, or making a bit of spare cash. It might just allow you to get off the J.O.B. treadmill sooner- if that's what you want- and enjoy these later years to the max! Why wait til you're 65 or more?! Enjoy your site and the kind of life it can help enable for you!
I am surprised to read how many think of themselves as old at the ages posted in this thread. In my view, there are great opportunities ahead and with the knowledge I've gained from past mistakes and living, I'm ready to take advantage of anything that comes along. If I recall correctly, Colonel Sanders didn't start selling his fried chicken until he was about 65.
Retire? The word means different things to different people. If to retire means to kick back and stop being productive, I don't ever plan to retire. It's a depressing thought.
Someone mentioned younger girls not fearing him anymore. Call it "fear" or whatever you want, but you have knowledge and skills a man half your age doesn't. :)
where do you find one that is willing at that hour?
I could answer that however I'd get severely slapped wrists:-)
55 years, 180+ domains, many still to be completed fully however I also have plans for another 50-60 over the next few years.
Retire? That's when/if they carry me off to the funny farm or cemetery first!
So long as I can still think straight, why retire? I've seen too many people disappear in an alcoholic haze pretending they are enjoying themselves when they're mostly miserable and would love to get back to being productive.
And to keep fit get a Husky, that'll keep you on your toes:-)
Wow, y'all are one old bunch too, Google should be offering arthritis, alzheimer's and dental plans along with AdSense.
didja know that these are high paying niches? a dollar a click minimum...
but I'm at a stage when it's starting to be obvious I'd better start taking better care of myself- exercise, healthy diet, sleep (what's that?) etc- or I may feel about 250 by the time I'm 90!
I've been on a self-imposed no-cola diet for 2 months now.... God I miss the fizz filling up my nostrils...
AdSense for Old Farts
I am 49, but will be hitting the BIG 50 in December.
When I turned 40 it was a crisis. I am dealing better with the prospect of 50 than I did with 40.
As far as AdSense and the internet, I plan to keep on keepin' on till I can't see any more!
I truly wish this had been around in my younger days as I would have been rich by now!
Thank you GOOGLE!
2) My wife and I used to go to the Mansion on Sunday afternoons for movies. HH would always be there in his pajamas and bathrobe. Interesting guy--he was a good role model in the sense that he knew his audience, and he didn't tolerate sloppiness or shortcuts. He'd personally do the final editing on the parts of the magazine that he cared about most, including some of the popular features like the Playboy Advisor and the Party Jokes. I remember answering a sex question for the Playboy Advisor and having Masters & Johnson providing input. Working at Playboy taught me not only that professionalism matters, but that respect for one's readers is one of the things that makes a magazine like Playboy stand out from its imitators. (The same rule can be applied to the Web.)
Drowning in debts also...one thing is for sure, don't count on Adsense for your future, remember go.com. Alta Vista, Exite and Overture?
Who knows, Google could very well be gone in 5 years time!
I love Thailand and don't want to go back home to Canada.
I'll make a go at designing websites, any suggestions as how I can book some contracts?
