I am one of those individuals who cripplingly relied on Adsense to make money blogging. Things were a little bit smooth and going as planned till I woke up to an email saying that I have been banned from Google’s Adsense program.
You can’t imagine how hard it was to stomach such information.
I mean, you just woke up, prepared yourself and ready to go to your job only to receive a “don’t come to job today, you’re fired!” call !! …Demoralizing right?.
