Hiatus...yeah I know (*≧m≦*)

I'm so sorry to say this you guys, but I am going to have to announce that this blog as well as my Youtube channel will be on hiatus and I honestly can't say for how long either. I'm hoping at the maximum duration of about a months time but if things don't go according to plan then this blog may be moved to another url. I'll explain why...

About 2 weeks ago I found out that my Google Adsense account had been disabled affecting both my Youtube videos and this blog. It was how I made money doing the hobbies I love the most so this alarmed me and caused me to act promptly by sending them an appeal form. It didn't work unfortunately and I soon found out that I am one of the many thousands of unfortunate publishers that this has happened to. I am deeply saddened by this news because this really couldn't have happened at a worse time since I had so much to share with you all on this blog and my channel. Since there is no long any revenue coming in, the motivation is not as strong as it used to be for me to continue on without Google by my side and that's me just giving it to you guys 110% real.

I have an idea of what might have happened so in the future I know that I can do my best to better prevent this from happening to my account again. I do need to say that there's no telling whether or not re-sending the appeal form will guarantee this blog to be active again, but if it fails to work out then my last resort will be to start a new blog/channel sadly. I'm almost at 300 followers too...that's a new record for me and I've used this blog for so long dating back to 2009 I believe. Such a shame. I hope you guys understand. This will most likely be the last time I am going to switch things up on you all like this. I plan on coming back harder than I did before. All I ask is that you continue to show your support and help encourage me to not give up blogging and making Youtube videos. I want to promote a positive outlook on the content in the posts I share with you guys, so please if I do have to be forced to change up my blog please follow me on there rather than this blog as it will remain dead if it has to come to that. I will be doing a giveaway *finally* all from my own pocket to show the gratitude to those who do decide to re-follow me or if I do get my Adsense account up and going again then I'll definitely host a giveaway for celebrating the fact that I didn't have to change blogs so either way you'll get one.

That's really all I have to say for this post. School started for me but since this is the last semester before I get my AA, it's pretty easy so I have time for blogging/vlogging and what not. Follow me on tumblr or my facebook if you haven't already to keep up with me for the mean time. Lastly, I will post on here the new url of my blog if I do move so stay subscribed.

  2. Thank you Alicia. I really do hope that this is a temporary issue that gets resolved quickly. It breaks my heart to have to start all the way from square one but there isn't a whole lot I can do now. Thanks for being so supportive!

  4. I'm honestly not sure :/ It could be for a plethora of reasons so i just have to figure out how to make sure that my new account isn't effected by any of the potential ones that will lead to this happening due to violation of their policies next time.
