I'm in the same boat. seems one blogger said you have to wait 7mths !!! another said when you have $50 earned! I'm lost too, no one ever gets back to tell me the next step after signing up for Adsense, because without that account you can't get paid! That's what I've been reading, and I'm constantly researching as to what to do next? It's all so secretive. Well, it appears that way, sure isn't easy to get to follow the steps on how and what to do.
