Last month I made $6.51 from Adsense revenue, the best month so far since I started this experiment. Although I didn’t hit the magic “1 roll of Portra 400” mark, it came pretty close.
I credit a lot of the new Adsense revenue to switching to a WordPress theme and using the Adsense plugin by Google. Everything appears to be better optimized, but I’m sure I could do more.
I also started experimenting with some modified Python scripts to automate some of my Twitter tasks. My automation bot R2D2 spends time each morning scanning popular #ai and #machinelearning posts and then retweets them.
Since I’ve been doing that, I’ve noticed a deluge of Twitter users putting me on a list. I suspect that’s some sort of Bot scanning retweets and then auto populating me on a list. I will monitor this as a I go along.
I’ve also noticed a bump in new followers but also a strange unfollowing within 24 hours. I think there is some sort of automated script running that autofollows me in the hope that I’ll follow them back and then it unfollows me. I’ve noticed the same handful of Tweeple follow me and then follow me again. So they must be unfollowing me between the two follows.
