I began getting interest in Post Office Box charges in Kenya when I could not get my verification pin from Google for my ad sense account.

You see my ad sense account was bringing in some good money, and after 2 months of implementing ad sense on my sites, this one and another, my account had several hundred pounds which needed to be withdrawn. It was time to finally get reward for my labor.

In this age and era not everyone fancies having those post office boxes anymore. Emails, chats, social media have taken over as the preferred means of communication.

So when Google asked that I verify my account using a PIN sent to me via a post office box, I was a bit worried. Besides, most boxes I have been using belong to my either employer or church.

And you know as I do that getting a letter from such community boxes can be hard work. You are even lucky if your letter is actually sent to you.

I used one to get my pin, and after a month and a half without getting my letter, I gave up and began getting interest in post office charges in Kenya and how I would own a box of my own.
