BE VERY CAREFUL!! Consult with your parents for two reasons, the first is a little matter of copyright property rights now, which you parents actually control for you as your guardians at law, the second is close, because the income from them will be taxed to your parents, and they should not be caught by a bad surprise when the IRS and New York State hit them for un reported taxes. If the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is not true. The old folks may be a nuisance right now, but they can help you see that you get money, and do not lose it, or a bunch of other things.

Otherwise, congratulations, hope to see you name in lights some day!!

Just to be on the safe side, check that you are on the real YouTube page.

Many scams go to great lengths to mimic the look and appearance of well-known sites to steal login details (once you "login" on the fake site, your account is compromised). Also, double-check (and triple-check) the address showing up on your browser.

Aside from that, it is quite possible that the email is indeed legitimate. I have just checked on my youtube account (I have no videos on it, just use it to comment, rate, and flag stuff), and there is a direct link there to my AdSense account (which I use for some of my websites). And I have been seeing google ads on youtube videos for a while, so the feature is quite real.

In any case, the best way to stay safe is to type the youtube address manually on a new browser window/tab and go on from there: this avoids the risk of following a malicious link to some scam site. If you already followed some link from the e-mail, and you didn't verify that you were indeed on the real site while logging in, this may be a good time to update your passwords.

Also, pay attention to Vicky's advise: you need a legal tutor (your parents) to act on your behalf to engage in a commercial activity, and the earnings you make through AdSense are subject to taxes (which your tutor has to manage).

Last, but not least, don't expect to get rich out of a couple of videos: the money you can earn through AdSense is tightly related to the traffic your videos and/or sites have: if your videos get a lot of viewers, you'll get a lot of ad prints and clicks and hence a lot of money; but if they are low-traffic they will also turn out to be low-profit (still, low-profit can often be better than no profit).

      Yep, I agree, as noted by my Location description included with each message I send here 🙂   I'm much more relaxed here than I am in certain other parts of the USA.   Astrid

      Yes it is , and depends on the state .  In general its life insurance is a big savings , but short term disability may go up . In MA as far as I know no difference on auto insurance .

      Massachusetts is great! Love the state! One of these days, I'll move back.

      Hey y'all! Haven't been too active here the past few weeks, I've been in a mostly uneventful but busy routine the past few weeks. So I haven't had much to say or time to say it. But I think I mustered up enough noteworthy things to mention. So here goes...    So, life at my new sober house has been OK. On the one hand I've made some good new friends and became more incorporated into the lights community. I finally feel like I'm where I belong and part of something, not just subsisting in isolation on the fringe of society... On the other hand, I'm so busy and stressed with all the treatment and meetings required of staying in a sober house. I'm tired of treatment living. I want to be independent again. But for now it is what it is. I don't know what the future holds... But enough of that.    I've been off hormones for a week bc my doctor won't approve my refill until she sees me, which is in a couple hours today. I also do my first labs today. While I didn't instantly morph back into a man being off hrt for a week (lol), it did disrupt my morning ritual of taking it with my coffee. Being OCD this did mess with my anxiety a bit.    This past week aside, I've been transitioning now for 3 1/2 months. It's still going well. My breast are not noticeably bigger, but the tissue is firmer. My nipples are harder and getting pretty sore now. My waist fat is melting away (low carbs, intermittent fasting and a lot of walking) and smoothing out and blending with my hips. I still get dysphoric at times about my appearance. But I've been looking at photos of me before this past spring and I feel so much more pretty and feminine then I did back then. I'm quite content with where I see my transition going.    I also have my first laser hair removal session Friday, so excited!    I've been hanging out quite a bit with my transition sister. After my doctor appointment today, we're going for a walk in the park. She's so lovely... 😍   Stay awesome y'all!  ~Toni

      I like it! This speaks to me, about the duality we struggle and diverge with.    ~Toni

      Interestingly I realized today I had not contacted my auto insurance company when I thought I had.  Duh!  I called USAA and after the agent did a little research she just changed the gender marker.  I logged in to the website a few minutes later and hocus pocus, it was correct!  Yeah.  I'm hoping my rates will change a little.     Jani

      Just came off the call. They said they are happy to support me in anyway they can but they don't have any specific policy built in. As such they are going away to do some research and reach out to other colleagues to see if they can work out the best way forward. On my side, does anyone have any links to good resources on transitioning to work at all? Would be good to read what other companies or people have as best practice so I know what might need to be discussed if anything is missing?

      Day two was very quiet actually. We sold a lot more stuff, but mostly through online sites. We shut it all down at 1 in the afternoon and went swimming at a friends pool. I actually had my 4 year old swimming without his floaties!! But nothing weird. Lol.  Nothing much. They couldn’t find the vin on the bike so they checked the vin on my title and saw that it wasn’t stolen and was in fact mine. So they said thank you and headed out. And a few minutes later the other person came and bought my bike.  Neither person seemed to have any issue with the bearded girl in a bikini with a bulge. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It says a lot about this part of the country I think. I am very grateful to live here.
