My Blogging Experience
I started Blogging late July after being frustrated and tired of being broke and always financially dependable on other folks for money. A friend, name withheld talked me into blogging and ever since I find it quite interesting but time consuming too.
I started with the mindset of earning a living through Blogging after my graduation from the University but the challenges that came with the dream became quite underwhelming and I was obviously disappointed that my expectations weren’t what I envisioned it to be.
I had endless sleepless nights all in the quest for knowledge about this blogging thing.
My Battle with Google AdSense Approval
There is no denying of the fact that I have had my fair share of Adsense rejections as the Adsense team believe my site wasn’t good enough to earn Google’s trust for its Adsense Monetization Program.
I found it difficult getting approved as my mentor or guide (Friend who introduced me to Blogging) per say stopped tutoring me along the line.
My frustration with him was due to the fact that he showed me How to buy a domain name and get a host for my new blog but left me unattended during the early stages of my blogging experience, so you could see why I was visibly angry with him as I know little or nothing about Blogging.
At times when I needed his help after each Adsense rejection, I ended up not getting satisfactory response from my supposed Blogging Mentor despite granting him the access to my site admin page to assist correct any flaws with my site that caused the reject from Almighty Google.
Here are some of my mistakes I want you all to learn from and correct if you find yourself experiencing what I experienced back then prior to Adsense disapprovals.

Google uses a kind of bot that tracks down its users’ contents and check if there have been existing sources that contain some information about what you published.
There that Online rewritable or Spinner tools like SpinBot, Free article spinner that converts these copied contents and rewrite them in other words and most of the time, these Google bots find it difficult to read your contents as they believe it is of a different language from what these bots understands.
These tools often make mistakes and write words that are completely different from the scrapped contents, so, you see why it is of paramount interest to write your contents yourself as no one can write them better than you do.
There are plagiarism checkers that can help check the uniqueness of your contents.
Here are some notable names Grammarly, Search engine reports, but you need not worry about them if your contents are written by you.
Note that not it is not only contents that can be marked as not unique, Images and videos too can fall under this category too.
