As a few of you may have noticed, I changed my theme lol. The reason is mainly ads. Okay, so for a while in January(At least half of the month) I was using one of these special ‘wordad themes’, which allow you to have like 1 or 2 extra ads on the page.
Since you don’t get the any sort of feedback until like 2 months later, you literally have no way to find out how much revenue or ad impressions you’re getting at the time that you’re getting them.
Now it’s statistics time, yay~… I had like 240k views in January, but only 100k ad impressions. I thought “Oh hey, I guess only like half the people didn’t have ad-block on?” and didn’t really think too much about it after that. 100,000 ad impressions was worth 114.44 dollars. It didn’t really seem like a lot, but it was better than nothing. So~, I decided to try and get more views the next two months in order to get more ad impressions.
For the entire month of February, I was back to my old theme, which only allowed 1 ad thingy, so I figured it might not get as many impressions, but it shouldn’t be too bad, right? Yeah, I was wrong lol. 225k views only gave me 15k ad impressions and here’s the funniest part, those 15k impressions were only worth 81 cents. Not even a single dollar QQ.
Now I know that depending on the ads and where the person viewing it is from, there is supposedly a ‘slight’ difference in what they’re worth but still… I figure it has to be the theme. That’s the biggest variable imo. So~, I’m pretty sure March is already doomed to be worth less than a dollar… Ugh, I just wish the stupid wordads would tell me before 2 months had already gone by.
In further news, today is actually Break Day, I think? Even if it isn’t, it’s Break Day now cause I’m fucking depressed… Well, I’m not actually depressed, but I am pretty pissed off. I’m still writing/editing etcetera, but chapter 52 will be posted in like idk, 24 hours?
BTW, I’m currently editing chapter 6 of “Immortal Soul”, so hopefully I’ll be able to finish editing the first book in April? Maybe I’ll be able to publish “Black Mithril” on Amazon during May? It’s been like a year and a half since I wrote this first volume or book of “Immortal Soul”, so everything is so messy… QQ.
