I always say that to be successful with Google AdSense you have to experiment and test which colors and formats make you the most money on your blog. I still believe that very much, however I get a lot of emails from people that tell me they changed their ad placements or colors and still nobody is clicking. I then usually find out that their blog is fairly new or that they've never really had a steady flow of visitors.
Remember to get people to click the ads on your blog, you first need to have people visiting your blog. Not every visitor is going to click on your AdSense ads either. If you only have a couple of visitors a day it is hard to say which ads will work best for your site. So what I'm trying to say is that not making a load of money from Google AdSense in the beginning is totally normal, but you don't want to go and change the colors and ad placements until you can do some real testing with a large amount of visitors. If you have 100 people coming to your blog everyday and still nobody clicks your ads, then you'll want to make some changes.
Earning a fulltime income from blogging and Google AdSense is definately possible, but you have to be patient and keep your eye on the prize. As long as you keep posting good interesting content, people will notice soon enough. I hope this kind of helps ease some of the concerns, and remember every successful blogger started out right where you are now. As always keep up the hard work and good luck!
