webcentric: Having a hobby is good. Having a hobby that makes money is even better
True. It's not that I don't care about money or that the content is not worth it, my sites were born as a hobby and some of them became authoritative sites, Adsense might gibe bitter moments (sometimes too many). Panda, Penguin, etc. It made a lot of things go down, original content pays well, still we all were hit, suddenly there are no stable months, just up and downs...
Anyway having a hobby is good, making money out of that hobby is better, but keeping in mind why one is doing things is even better, keeping the mind healthier.
It's sad, a lot of good white hat decent webmasters feel terrible (I joined the club recently) but some of them are nowhere to be seen on the forum. The problem is, Adsense is unpredictable, there is very little we can discuss, really, very little.
Back into topic of observations: I'm near of making a week of stable decent earnings. I've been focused on something else completely and left some sites on autopilot and auto publish some content.
