Play some games with yourself! Have fun while blogging! This is what I do to keep my mind off how much "money" or "audience" I'm attracting every day. Fun Fun Fun Fun!
How about trying not to check your monetize tab every day, and leave it for one week and see your progress? You'd be surprised. You'll feel GREAT to see the big improvement. If you blog with passion, it'll attract audiences with similar hobbies/interests.
You can do the same with your stats tab too!
You should focus on attracting traffic with interesting blogs and proper networking (without breaking the rules, of course!) rather than focus on how much money you're making for the time being, and you'll have a rush of natural high with happiness! :P
Just to note: it's against the rules to exchange links amongst bloggers without any reason but to increase traffic, so be careful! You're also not allowed to have explicit (including, casino and gambling-related) content on your blog when using adsense! >_<
Have fun fellow bloggers!
