UPDATE: (a few hours later…) I finally found out how to set the “Country” setting. My videos are now monetized. I’ll be making about 1 dollar per 1000 views. That means I’ll be making about 5 dollars a year from them. Things could change, though. Ya never know.

Ok, I’ve made a couple videos on youtube, and I’d like to make more, but motivation has hit a snag. Google currently will not allow me to monetize (put ads on my videos to earn revenue) because according to Google, the monetizing program is not available in my country. What??? I am in the United States, just like Google. In my entire life I have spent less than a week’s worth of time outside the country. (Thank you Canada and Mexico). Where in the world are they getting the idea that I’m somewhere other than the U.S. of A.? I sent them a message. Hopefully they’ll fix the problem. It’s not like I’d make much money w[atith my videos, but every penny helps! If you happen to work for Google and are reading this, my account is under the email address of kevin.barbieux[at]gmail.com and is called “The Homeless Guy”. Thanks!
