For a Dollar a Day
The shocker of this piddly Google Adsense income preventing full employment benefits tale, is not that the blogger is being victimized by New York State, it’s that a run of the mill St. Louis food blog reached the $100 threshold—the minimum amount required by Google to cut a check—in three months.
I don’t have any delusions about the popularity of my blog and have wanted to get rid of these useless Google ads for ages but wanted to wait until I got my next $100 first. For a hint at how long it takes me to rack up $100, the last time I got a payout I used the money for dinner at Momofuku Ko when the price was still $85. I am now $4.88 away from my second $100 bounty. At this rate, I will reach that by the new year. Party!
