I'd contact support and see if it's a problem on their end, before doing too much--or see if they say you're getting close to your limits somehow.
That's odd. What is your site about and what type of ads are you using?
With that traffic, you should be able to earn much more than $2/year. Are you doing contextual ads like Adsense? Affiliate programs (CJ, Azoogle, etc...)? Both?
Even if your site is totally random, as far as topics go, I'd think Adsense would still do okay. Even one relevant affiliate program should generate some money.
Even Dreamhost promo codes, Amazon links to books on topics you cover, etc... should help out.
Save up to $96 at Dreamhost with ALMOST97 promo code (I get $1).
Or save $97 with THEFULL97.
