I never would have thought that I would find a total stranger, an online friend actually, who voluntarily showed willingness to help me when I needed it the most.
It all started when I posted in one of the online communities about my predicament concerning my blog. You see, my AdSense application remains unapproved since I applied in 2018. I am not aware that there is more to blogging than just merely writing and posting stories on my site.
Recently, I was surprised to receive a message from this kind-hearted lady asking if I need help. Without any hesitation, I replied positively. I never looked back since then. She is now my self-designated mentor. We even become friends on FB. Do you know who she is? She is Maysz Adrias. She is the lady behind amayszing.com.

This article is my humble way of expressing how grateful I am for all the help she extended to me, especially when she remotely manipulated my blog site to give way for the installation of a new blog theme design I purchased from an online shop.
GETTING MY SITE INDEXED IN GOOGLE
Imagine, my site was invisible for more than a year. I never had any organic traffic.
Knowing how important for a site to show up in a search query, she helped me understand Google Search Console and she patiently guided me throughout the whole process of indexing and submitting my sitemap to Google.
FIXING THE LOOSE END
It is very difficult for a site to get approved by Adsense. What is even more difficult is the fact that you have to figure out what is wrong with your site.
Fixing the back-end dashboard of my site, especially the blog’s settings took a lot of time. She was happy to help someone struggling with strange-sounding names such as ad.txt or custom ad.txt.
THE NEW THEME DESIGN
This is the most challenging part of my blogging journey – changing the design of my site. This is an alien work for me.
To be honest, I am in my 50’s and are not familiar with so many tools on the internet, more so on social media. So, that means I do not know about html codes. Changing my blog’s designs requires a little bit of background in html codes.
Knowing my inadequate knowledge about this technical skill, she volunteered for a team viewer session that lasted for about 3 hours.
She never complained and is more than willing to answer my queries. Just look at how beautiful this blog’s layout is. She was also the one who recommended where to get a decent design for a reasonable price.
SUBMITTING THE ADSENSE APPLICATION
Submitting the AdSense application is a breeze. But fixing on the issues AdSense found on your blog is a different thing.
Without any specific issues, you have to work on every aspect of your blog – from content to design and back-end. While I am waiting for my Adsense approval, it is good to know that someone helped me submit the AdSense application correctly.
As a newbie-blogger, I still have a lot to learn. Without meeting this lovely and kind-hearted lady, my blogging journey would not have been as enriching and fruitful as before.
I am hoping that she will remain patient and helpful. When the time comes that someone will need my help about blogging, I hope I am as experienced as she is by then, I could return the favor so that I could make one happy soul as well.
And by the way, don’t be tricked by this article’s title, I am still an average Joe.
