A lot of my friends and colleagues play computer games. Often it is kind of difficult at work to explain what I do during my free time, as I am sure building websites for profit is against company policy. Many people I know, go home to play computer games, not that I am against this in any way as a form of entertainment. I used to play a lot of games when I was younger, but now if feels like a complete waste of time when I think of all things I could be doing.

I find that Adsense and affiliate marketing is probably not unlike any strategical game. For me, playing the adsense game is entertaining, perhaps it is a very geeky game but it is something I enjoy and trying to increase my numbers has never in the slightest made it feel like “work”.

At least it helps you to increase your bottom line, without having to go out and buy the latest consoles.
