I do not want to go around the bush, Google Adsense bought me a new laptop! Few hours ago, FedEx handed me a box containing the fruit of my blogging labor.

It is not expensive though, only a little more than $800 with a $100 mail-in rebate. I do not want to state the details of my new toy because I am just overwhelmed by the fact that my daily blogging has been so rewarding so far.

At first, I thought this craziness for blogging won't go far. However, I was persistent. Confident I was that my Google Adsense will do something good for me. Inspired by the testimonials of other bloggers and how they have earned their first cents and finally earning hundred bucks monthly, I pushed myself further into the blogging sphere and learned more of the monetization techniques. It paid off!

Thanks to Adsense. Really. This laptop was bought by Adsense and I just couldn't be happier than now.

Persistence is the key. Also, follow the tips from professional bloggers seriously. If you find an article online that tells you how to earn legally through blogging, do it. However, I would strongly suggest that if you plan to do something for your blog, do a little research first. There are a lot of bogus operations online that might take advantage of your excitement. Be very careful in using programs to generate traffic. Be aware of the terms and conditions of Adsense, if you plan to have one. Otherwise, your violations will force Google to disable your account.

I still am thinking of what to buy with the remaining money I have. What about for next month? Or the month after next?

Blogging has now been a big part of my day. With my new domain, nobody knows when I will stop doing this.

To Adsense, big thanks to you! To all professional bloggers out there who never fail to inspire new bloggers (been blogging for just over a year) like me, thank you too!

I hope this post will inspire bloggers to continue doing what they love doing, that is to love their blog more and more each day. You'd get your rewards when you have done your part.

To those wanting to make money from their blogs, Google’s AdSense so far is the best way.

Google AdSense is where I earn around 40% of my income as a blogger and I would highly recommend it as a way of monetizing a blog, especially for those just starting out.

If you’re not yet an AdSense publisher sign up for it using the following button and you'll be in for a big surprise.

WOW~!! Congrats! That is excellent! I can believe and say that its true. This is not a joke, adsense do pay. I have only been blogging for a month, and my adsense is doing well - I mean a few cents a day, not to expect much but I have taken blogging seriously this time.

Visit my site sometime - http://chuvachienes.com

lam mo, i kinda admire you. at least, you're not selfish in sharing some secrets. pero may i ask--do we need to be really computer-literate to earn like you. i want to give a computer kc to my siblings kc my nephews need them. i wish i'll get a free laptop like you did so i could give away my old pc to my siblings and the laptop to my kids.

wow very nice lappy! ^_^ Congratulations! I'm kind of mad at myself for finding about google adsense only this year when my I started my blog at 2007. I only started this year and well I'm still at $40. But as you said persistence is the key. But my real money maker is PayPerPost and SponsoredReviews. Already have $100+ in my paypal and I just worked for that in 3 months. Oh yes, Smorty contributed to that too hehehe.

Congrats! I also highly recommend WidgetBucks. I've been earning almost twice as much with WidgetBucks compared to AdSense. Plus, the ads are optimized for WordPress, Blogger, and even TypePad. Check out this WidgetBucks review for some more info.
