Right now, I just want to rant about something that recently happened which shook me a bit. I'm supposed to sleep but I can't. Not with what I just found out with regards to my Adsense account. I must be so naive to trust someone so easily I barely know with something that can leave this effect to me. I can't say that I regretted trusting that person because for every experience, there is an underlying lesson that can be learned from that. I am just shaken right now because what he did to me was still so fresh in my mind and well, yes, I did not expect it to happen. This made it even harder.
There's two instances already that this has happened to me. I trusted them too easily even though I barely know them. Yes, I may have made a mistake by giving it so easily. From the first instance, I definitely have learned my lesson and I am careful to who I trust with regards to that. However, for the second instance, I can't really say that it was the same. I did weigh the pros and cons in trusting him. I was thinking that, hey, he's helping me get something from this somehow semi-abandoned blog and bring it back to life and I couldn't care less about adsense anyway or what it can bring to my blog. So why shun the opportunity? And I didn't even ask for the details of what he was doing behind the scenes since he said he was going to take care of it. Little did I know he was doing some sort of black magic. O.o I guess I also lost hindsight because I was beginning to see results from whatever it is that he is doing. My adsense was generating $$. So I thought everything went well until... he deliberately cut off ties with me. That's when I knew something was wrong.
As you can see in my blog I don't have any adsense anymore because it has been disabled. Because he made a mistake. I don't know if it was intentional or not, but because of the mistake he committed, he completely cut off ties with me without even explaining or apologizing about what happened. Honestly, I really couldn't care less if it was disabled so I am not that affected when it was disabled. I am shaken by the fact that after it happened, he suddenly disappeared like a magician! Along with his black magic tricks! *sigh* It would have been nice if he apologized and explained what happened and tell me this and that but no. He avoided the situation because his plan failed and who knows what he's gonna do afterwards. He's probably going to find a possible prospect to negotiate with and when it fails, he can just disappear without a trace. No loss at his part because it's not his account that is endangered.
Somehow I wish I could come up with a resolution and I just want him to know that it doesn't matter if my adsense account was disabled because of him. I'm not generating anything from it anyway. I just hope that he's not going to do it to others as well and bloggers and publishers of adsense must be vigilant as this can happen to anyone. So yes, lesson learned goes back to not being naive in trusting things to anyone so easily.
