    Well, it’s been a week or so since I last posted. Since then, Google Adsense deleted my account, taking with it roughly $160. That discouraged me for a few days. They said it was “fraudulent.” I don’t really have any control over what they said was fraudulent, but whatever. I’ve switched to a new ad company. In the meantime, I’ve been trying to polish my writing resume a bit by writing some new articles for Helium.com. Mostly, I just tried to write about subjects no one had written about yet.

    The difference between grilling and barbecuing
    Although you’ll often hear the two terms used interchangeably, grilling and barbecuing are two entirely different forms of cooking.
