Adsense says it only takes a few days to approve an account, but I've been waiting two weeks now for approval. Maybe they need more content to do a successful crawl. I don't know.
This is a pity because I picked up an ELEVENTH (oh you read that right, baby) reader yesterday, and fourteen people--FOURTEEN--looked at my page yesterday. I am clearly missing out on four, possibly even five, cents a month here because Adsense won't get on the ball.
