A few weeks ago—Christmas Eve to be exact—I reported that I was now earning about $0.69 a day from Adsense ads. Well, the bean counters at Google must have read my post and determined that that was way too much for a measly Blogger blog, and in the spirit of Christmas dropped me back down to $0.01 or $0.02 a day.
The Intrepid's traffic (I really need to change the name of this site) did drop from about 2,000 weekly visitors to 1,500 over the holidays, but a 25% drop in traffic shouldn't equal a 93% drop in ad revenue (unless my early-to-mid December earnings were just an aberration).
I was hoping to earn my first $100 by April, so I could shut down this experiment, but that seems pretty unlikely now.
