Hello, my nickname is Pente. I was born autistic and I still have trouble perceiving the emotions of other people. On the positive side though, I have a very strong aptitude with logic, mathematics and computers.

My family traveled a lot and we were dirt poor. I worked my way through college in California by living in my car. I received a degree in electronics. I have traveled extensively, been in some trouble with the law, and overall had a fairly hard life. I definitely consider myself to be a survivor.

I am familiar with HTML, CSS, and PHP and  was starting  to build a niche website when I ran across this site. I was having trouble defining my niche and realized this site would be perfect for articles that didn't fit that niche.

I am here at Hubpages to practice my writing, test markets for different ideas, and to do some experiments. I want to see what works and what doesn't work. My primary goal is learning and my secondary goal is earning some extra money.

Current Goal: Put up a hundred hubs and analyze results.

Dec 5, 2010: Started Hubbing.

Feb 1, 2011: 60 Hubs, 3040 views, AdS $5.37, Ama $1.00 (1 sale)

Dec 1, 2011: 98 Hubs, 33,001 views, Ads $11.02, Ama $0, HA $0

In early 2012, Google changed for the worst, some of my best hubs weren't even listed on Google. Views dropped over 90% and after several attempst to improve views with no success, I stopped writing hubs. Later I removed some of my poorly written or obsolete hubs. As of September 3, 2014, I have had 71,000 views and have received one $100 payout from Google.

*Hubs & views are cumulative, revenue is monthly, AdS = AdSense, Ama= Amazon, HA= Hub Ads.
