11:08 pm - Best adsense day

Made more than $25 on adsense today -- that's 3 to 4 times what I usually make. Wouldn't it be great to average $25/day? That would be better than $9K a year.

I'll have to check my traffic tomorrow but it looks like someone just bid up the prices on the adwords I rank for.

05:21 pm - Thanks, Google, for still buying me lunch
Google makes a payment based on when your adsense income hits $100. So if you earn $99.99 in one month you have to wait an extra month to get paid. As a result, the $100 benchmark is one I've tended to watch, although the only months I've missed it lately were last fall when I got hacked and fell out of the Google index for a while. This month I reached it by the18th, which puts me on a pace for about $175 in June. Hey, it's a start.

The vast majority of this comes from my "how to get a book published" pages. Its' slowly dawned on me to try more "how to" pages. Next one up will probably be "how to pick a typeface."

Everyone must link to the asian art museum blog. I'm trying to move it up in the rankings.

It turns out the Novshek family has a strain of Aleut in it.


This is what the shore of the Pomonkey looks like:

08:32 am - Waters of Potomac
The place we are staying is at the confluence of the Potomac River and Pomonkey Creek. The landlords have a large place with a peer that goes out to the mouth of the Pomonkey. They have a lot of canoes and kayaks we can use.

It's windy here.

This is our house. You can also see the tower the landlords built.

10:26 pm - Does this sound like me?
I took a test at PsyBlog that's supposed to identify your character strengths. I'm not altogether certain what the value of that is, but anyway these are the results I got. (I always feel with these tests that I could take them a week later and get different results.) I guess the idea is to reinforce the positive.

What results do you get?
