    An interesting comment was made to me today. It was basically what I was going to do with my websites and Hubpage account when I consider making a will.

    A "will" in Australia is a legal document you write that details how you want your assets dispersed in the event of your death. I do not know what it is called internationally.

    It got me to thinking that with Adsense accounts etc and the money we make, that this is an asset and wondered how many other people considered this in case the worse happens.

    I started writing down all my passwords and url's so I can pass them onto my children, just in case.

    Any thoughts on this?

    It's called a "will" in the U.S. too. Good point.  I'm hoping my Hubs will eventually become my "retirement income", though, so I'm hoping to be around long enough to see that happen.  lol

    wow - thanks for this suggestion!  At last I have something to will to my kids - but I better get busy, if I were to croak tomorrow, I doubt if they'd be impressed on under $3 a month!  lol

    My nineteen year old son has already shot gunned one site I have when I am gone.

    I thought to myself, "thanks for your appreciation of my nineteen years service".

    Oh well, Kids!!! Still it is something they can have that will make them money for years to come.

    I didn't know you could leave your adsense income to your loved ones. Really?
