Ads are Gone

So, apparently writing original content and expecting to make a few bucks off of advertising is a violation of the Google AdSense Terms of Service. Never mind the fact that I'm actually writing my posts and not reposting pictures or videos.

Well, I was going to discontinue this blog because of the lack of incentive. But, you know what? Fuck that shit. I'm gonna continue writing every day. I'll write what I care about and what I want to share with anyone. This is still a place to come and open your eyes, to see that we are all sheep.

Now, I will take a minute and explain the purpose of this blog. The purpose is to expose some things in society that are worrisome, to say the least. This is not a call to action, but a way of telling people what goes on (or what I think goes on).

I think society is one strict structure and anyone who tries to break from the norm is punished. In this blog I will show you the cages in which we are kept, how our choices are taken away and how we are not free at all.

That being said, I also promise to ensure that my quality of writing is better. I will ensure that all my arguments have a logical flow to them and I will try and focus on specifics, rather than make vague claims. I hope that this will become a stop on everyone's internet reading list and that you guys might actually like what I write.

I hope you critique and comment (the shit out of) my posts. That's what I really want: reader involvement. Give me feedback, I want to know things I haven't thought of. Tell me I'm wrong, I don't care, just get involved. We are all human, and living life without human contact or interaction is wasteful.

One last thing. I want to have a series of posts where I will find some really honest, touching, or otherwise unique piece of writing on the internet (most frequently blogs, as I've been going through a lot of those lately, haha) and post it here. The author will get full credit, with a link to his/her blog and I will also let them know by email/comment that I've used it and if they don't want me using it they can tell me to remove it.

I'm doing this because going through a lot of shit on blogger I have come across some real gems of writing. Maybe not the best grammar, or rhetoric, but you can tell that the writer is being genuine in his post. People want to be heard, people want to tell you about their day, people want to hear that you care -- because, to be honest, if you knew that person in real life you would care. Why not over the internet?

Sincerely,
D-503


P.S. Soon, I will add a paypal donate button to the page. If you guys like my writing, and would like to support me, donate any amount you wish (every dollar helps). If you like it, and don't want to donate, that's cool, too, I don't judge. Haha.

  12. I always think the people willing to post the most about themselves and in the most genuine manner are the most brave of all.

  13. Thats crazy. I would try talking with Google myself. I've seen some crappy blogs where people are begging for ad clicks. I hope they aren't getting paid over you.

  14. Sucks that they did it to you bro.

  15. why the hell did you get banned? You'd think they would want to reward people coming up with OC like you?

    Lame. Keep on fighting then.

  16. That ban seems kind of bogus.. I would appeal it and try to get more out of them. They have stated that most people don't appeal their ban, and if you do pursue it, you might get it back!
