The Self-Cleaning Litter Box Was the Last Straw
That will be the last time I mention or picture cats on the blog. For the record, I do not care about cats, nor do I even like them. I have fond memories of Tigger, my childhood tabby cat, but they're only fond. This afternoon, my friend D texted me this question along with a screen shot of the product in question:
How much money do you make from the self-flushing litter box ads?
Last time I checked, my earnings -- however effortless and passive -- from the old blog were about $101.24, and it seems almost whorish to keep them up. I personally pay no attention at all to ads on others' blogs, and am even offended, often by the overwhelming presence of them on some of those big time blogger blogs. I confess to thinking that maybe one of my posts would somehow go viral, and every click would bring me some cents and before long I'd be buying us all a trip to Bora Bora. Instead, ya'll report on the tedious wait to comment while ads for kitty litter load, and I don't collect a check until my earnings hit $100 which, according to AdSense, hasn't happened since January.
No more ads and no more cats.
