I appreciate Google.com giving me a way to earn money to live for many years, but our friendship is over, I do my best to ignore Google. March 6, 2014
I guess this is a letter to my readers, we are in danger, Hobo Traveler is reaching the level where we cannot pay the bills. We don't go bankrupt, we just shut the thing down. We make a better website than ever, do more than ever, and lose, never in my life I have worked good, and done bad, I know I do good work.
I was very grateful when suddenly when I suddently started to make money using Google Adsense, I was in Bangkok, Thailand at the time.
However, nothing works anymore, it is like we are workaholics drowning in paperwork, and the truth is, I no longer care, I give up.
The problem is this, the type of work I need to do, to work with Google is not work that makes me proud of myself. I want to be a good writer, I want to take beautiful photos, have members enjoy the site, and have videos of my travels. Instead, I need to think about stupid shit like incoming links, social networks, ad how dense are my key words, and all the rules of Google.
I have no desire to work studying Google, it is a bullshiit thing to do with ones life, to know who Google works is for small stupid people.
Oh well, it is like blowing into the wind on snow day.

To think, I can take this photo here in Kara, Togo West Africa, and there is no way to make money using it, unless I lie, cheat, and steal, and spend time manipulating google and readers.
I refuse to live that life, or to that type of stupid shit, Google is a Charlie Foxtrot.
