It looks like you have taken someone’s advice to heart and have been reconfiguring your web site simply to generate monetizable traffic. True? The risk you are taking is that while this might work a bit in the short term, in the longer term by giving your site the appearance of one of those useless spambot web addresses that typically are a typo removed from better known sites, it degrades the value of the Luke Ford brand, even as you are trying to go the video route. (Speaking of which, invest a bit of cash into a better cam, a stand to put it on – it needs to be eye level with you! – and better lighting. What you are presently doing looks like crap. Perhaps some ex of yours will take pity and show you how to do this.)
Are you generating enough cash to pay your bills? If you are that hard up for cash, why not bite the bullet and try to get work as an office temp, or sit for the postal exam? You are white, can write, and could always lie about your age, and this need not be forever ( you could tell yourself). It is far later in your life than you think.
