Scrabbling round in the dust

As I wrote in Internet, I Gave You The Best Years Of My Life, for every winner there are many losers on the internet. I got all excited because a high-quality link from a good blog to one of my sites doubled my daily traffic and halved the bounce rate. Then I remembered it had doubled to 47 visitors. I check Adsense daily, willing my monthly income to break the $300 barrier but it doesn't. Webpreneur? Who am I kidding? I'm just scrabbling round in the dust for pennies like some ragged beggar kid.
