I wanted to formally apologize to any readers that I may have for being away from the blog for so long. Recently Google shut down my Adsense account siting "Invalid activity" as the only reason. No explanation, no remorse, and no chance for reinstatement. I appealed this action and was simply told no, again with no reasoning or explanation. Now, I didn't really make any money on this blog, nor am I a "for profit" writer, but it really offended me and made me swear off my blog for a time. I mean, Google wants to protect the privacy of it's affiliates it says, but to punish innocent bloggers and then not explain why (not to mention after you appeal Google won't even read or consider future appeals) is just bullying! Cyber bullying. I thought about moving my blog altogether and even canceling my gmail account and google plus. I mean, facebook would never do such a thing...Come on Google! This is just unfair!
