Pin It Monday Hop #53


I have happy news that I wanted to share to all of you. Google Adsense approved my application Yay! BUT this time I did not do it using my Pursuit of Functional Home blog. I applied again using my YouTube Channel Account.

As some of you know, I have been a member of Google Adsense for the past 3 years and had to terminate my account due to change of country. If you are in this kind of situation, before you terminate your account ask the bank in your new country first if they accept cheques that has the address of your first country. Do not terminate it yet until you confirm this.  I thought it was easy to re-apply for Google Adsense using my new country but I was wrong.  They kept on rejecting my re-application.

When I tried to en-cash my cheque that has a Singapore address, my Philippine bank just accepted it without a fuss.

But for some cases that you really need to terminate your account and want the cheque to be sent to your new country address, you can always re-apply but then again it is not a guarantee that they will accept your application again. If this happens to you, you might want to follow what I did – applying Adsense thru your own YouTube Channel (if you have) Or if you have other blog use that  instead.

Now, I am back creating videos and monetizing it. It is not much but it is passive income which I love. If you are sharing recipes in your blog why not make a cooking video tutorial that you can also share in your post? Or make a video of your hand craft or DIY projects. You earn in YouTube as well as in your blog Adsense ads. YouTube is also a good venue to increase visitors to your site.

I know it takes a lot of effort to create a video but the more you do it the easier it gets.

Let’s take a look what’s happening in our blog this week…

“How hard can it be to ask for forgiveness? Sometimes “I’m sorry” isn’t enough.  I agree with what Jacqueline said in this post “It is humbling, requires courage and wisdom”.  Read on for this wonderful and encouraging post from Deep Roots At Home.
