Adsense Earnings

January’s Earnings: $0.51

Overall amount = $10.43

If you hadn’t heard, YouTube is demonetizing many of their smaller accounts. By February 20, 2018, if a channel does not have 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours (240,000 minutes) of viewing time, that channel becomes ineligible for monetization.

This was disappointing news to learn. However, I still earn Adsense money from the ads on my blog. Since YouTube’s announcement, my subscriber count has been increasing on both channels at an average of 1 new subscriber a day. I do not expect to reach the new minimums by the 20th, and this is not a plea for everyone to go subscribe to my channels. If you’d like to support my channels by subscribing, thank you and I appreciate the support.

I will continue to make videos for both channels, growing them organically. As tempting as it was to hop on the #subforasub train, I didn’t want to gain subscribers just to up my numbers. I want to create a community and audience that is genuinely interested in what I’m sharing.
