Continuing making money online inspiration

Some people have asked me just why I started doing this and who I got the idea from. Well I started just after I left the University of Glasgow with just a simple website with only a few pages, and I put some Google Adsense adverts on it. A short while later the cents were rolling in. At that time Google paid UK advertisers in US Dollars.

After the swim I went along to the local bakers (Wooleys of Arran, famous for its oatcakes) for my usual “Chelsea Buns” to have with my coffee later in the morning.

Well, more optimisation and enhancements to this blog,...
