What to do with $100?

When I first started this blog almost 2 years ago I added some simple code with a small ad unit (as you see above). Using Google AdSense. Every time someone clicks on an ad you get a certain amount of money though Pay-Per-Click advertising. Once you reach $100 Google either sends you a check or direct deposits the funds.

My wife previously made fun of my ads on her blog here when an Anne Hathaway post triggered an ad for "gay friendly autos."

Well...I'm officially up to $96.71 in my Google account, and now I'm beginning to ask...what should I do with that $100 once I receive it?

My intentions are not to buy groceries or pay rent with it...I feel like I should do something unique with it? Maybe something that relates to this blog.

(If I was making money through AdSense faster I would use it to buy a new computer...but if I waited for enough money from ads, this computer would die long before I had enough money.)

I'm open for suggestions. Any ideas?

You should use part of the money to go see "Fred Clause"

I used mine to buy DVD's! :)

BTW - I haven't been able to make the official announcement because the site has been down for the weekend but MAM has essentially "closed it's doors" and we've set up new shop with a few other collaborators at

Same everything with bonus content! Hope to see you stop by!

I hate to say it, I am none too original. I'd either pay bills or buy DVDs.

buy the extended soundtrack version of the "lord of the rings: the return of the king".

Oh sir, there's no question, DVD's all the way.

Of course I would have to say that you've made me curious to look into adding the ads over at my own blog just to see what I would be selling.

You should pay google to increase traffic to your blog, making you more money in the future through ad sense.

Before you know it, an exponential growth cycle will take place and you can buy out google using their own money.
