Well, it’s almost a year since the blog was updated again. The main purpose of the blog was a means for me to update my notes and my interest.
Therefore, it’s not actually to make money, but if I do make money, it would be awesome.
So, here’s the update.
I make $0.05 for 3330 ads served in October 2018. Not that encouraging.
But nonetheless, I decided to inquire about this to WordPress support.
So, here is their response.

Hi there,Thank you for contacting WordPress.com!Just want to ask, why the total ads served is higher but the earning gets smaller?
How it’s calculated?
How to increase the earning?WordAds earnings, including the amount paid per ad impression, can fluctuate greatly depending on a variety of factors:
*The amount of traffic your site gets.
*Advertisers’ budgets for the month (they tend to spend more around holidays and higher sales periods).
*Where the majority of the traffic is coming from. (North American ad placements currently pay out at a much greater level than ads from other regions.)
*How many visitors are using ad blockers.
*The content of your posts and pages can also effect which advertisers want to advertise and how much they will pay to advertise on your site. Advertisers generally prefer to place ads on family-friendly content.The best suggestion we have for building income is to continue to build the traffic to your site. We have some tips on building traffic here: https://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-more-views-and-traffic/If we can help further, please let us know!

Would it helps?
Most likely since their whole business might be based on making sure people stick on to WordPress and ads work.
As for me, I might follow the advice or the most likely option is I might do nothing since I my website/blog is not my main source of income.
