I've Got Cash?!?

I happened to be checking on my Feedburner stats and got a pleasant surprise-- I've actually been getting some ad payments from Feedburner Ad Network every month! The thing is, they send them to me via PayPal, which I hardly ever use anymore, ever since I got over my addiction to buying and selling PDAs on EBay! And I guess they don't send you a little email any more to tell you you've got cash, probably hoping for exactly what happened with me, which was that I left the money sitting there and didn't withdraw it! At least it's earning interest. I guess I should start thinking of PayPal as an account and set it up in Quicken, so I can include any balances in my net worth. It's not a huge amount of money (I'd tell you how much but I imagine it's against their policies), but it was a nice thing to stumble across.

totally. finding money that you didn't know you have gets me all giddy.

I stopped logging into my paypal account ever since I stop trolling on eBay too, and totally forgot my text link ad payments go there.

logged in last week and was pleasantly surprised.

How much traffic do you get daily? What amount do you think a site needs before it is worth signing up for the Feedburner Network and/or Google Adsense?

Paypal is currently paying out better than ING, so at least you were making some interest!
