My First Google Adsense Payment from Western Union Philippines
The burden of proof: finally, to satisfy the non-believers, I've actually made money online through blogging. Here's my first ever payment from Google Adsense through Western Union here in the Philippines.
You should have seen how I excited I was. I was so restless and uneasy. At first I couldn't even spell my name right on the form. I probably looked like a guilty drug mule in line for airport inspection. Good thing Adrienne Nicole Bernal was there to support me and take pictures of me.
The payment issued to me by Google Adsense was 112 dollars. And so I decided to have the 100 in dollars and the extra 12 converted to Philippine pesos for some rewards spending.
This is Benjamin Franklin. He's my second most favorite US founder.
I can now personally thank Ben Bernanke and the US Federal Reserve for destroying the value of my earnings. People always assume that there's too much deregulation and that this caused the US financial crisis when in fact there's too much economic central planning of the government or Keynesianism. Good thing Ron Paul is now the chairman of the committee to oversee the Federal Reserve. For more on the evils of government intervention check out my other blog over at HarryLeaks.
This is the haircut that Google paid for.
I am sure that for some of you, earning 112 dollars after around 7 months isn't a big deal but hey how many people do you know can say that Google pays for their haircut? Yup, that search engine you use everyday, that innovative workplace everyone wants to work for, they are the ones who pay for my haircut (I am semi-bald now by the way haha).
