    I earned a load of money by just writing stuff!

    It goes to show if you put the work in or lie through your teeth - you too can make money.

    If you want to know how I did it then send me some money or read my crap.

    I will change my profile picture to that of a young lady very soon.

          I sort of miss the Famous Dictators Collection you were going to start last year.  I even cleared a special spot off of my refrigerator for it. You can easily get the remaining $230 you need if you unload that excess inventory.

      Hi Mark

      Love your style. I've been writing crap here for just over 1 year now and didn't realize that we get paid.

      Where's my money?

      I lie through my teeth on every article. Well that's not really true as I don't have teeth anyone and I'm short on hair to boot.

      I'm really a single, sexy female and not an over the hill redundant mechanic.

      I'll happily sell you my pic or would that be solicitation and against HP rules. I don't really mind though as I like to break the rules.

      Well done and "nice little earner" as we would say here.

      I'd stay a while and chat, but I got to go and read some crap by someone called Mark Ewbie, LOL.

      Ummm. Someone sweetly let me know that my name was being used in a post... I don't know what this is about, I don't have time to read it all the way through to understand. I have never lied about what I made. Back in the "glory" days i was making quite a lot of money from Google and Hubpages program - well over 1500 a month just with those and not counting Amazon and eBay.

      Of course now I am thrilled when I hit close to $300.00

      I hope this helps. I will be happy to answer any questions... or take screen shots of old charts if necessary. And, if I totally misread this in my skimming please chalk it up to writing 30 articles for a client in the past 3 days... have a great weekend. smile

          You know. You win. I have put in 20 hour days for the last week. I have tried to be upfront and honest with everyone. Yes I edited the images to black out personal information. I took them with my camera of my computer screen. That represented what I got from Hubpages program only, not the Google or affiliate income off of my hubs.

          I also added larger screen shots to my hub, How to Make Money with Crafts. Scroll to the bottom. Other than that there is really nothing I can do. I have better and more profitable things to do today.

                I know - because on my original HP account, Appletreedeals, I have been here over four years, and been trying to steal your stuff for at least 3 years 10 months - alas I am not  talented enough to mimic your style, and must be satisfied with seeing you turn simple stuff into winners - like "How to make friendship bracelets" - who would have thunk it?

                Now go back to work and let the trolls play.

                  yep. I remember MaryE when I first started publishing here, She was one of the most successful Hubbers here.  To make it short, I remember email messages with Mary who gave me some tips, a realistic view, such as how many articles it takes to even begin to see an income, etc, etc, etc. 

                  Of course, traffic and income has dropped for many sites like this. But there are those who continue to be successful, even if their income has dropped as well.

                  Gosh, I wish the trolls would find something better to do with their time.

        You should bear in mind Mayre, that MindExplorer1 is the latest guise of a long term troll, who makes as much mischief as he can here. Don't imagine that pic in the avatar is real.

          I know Will, and I don't think the pic in the avatar is real.  I know that it's a troll. I also know that I have been questioned so many times about my honesty in that matter. I didn't seek out the success stories thing...they asked me to do it.

          My images and argument are more for the sake of the people who have wondered if it was really true after having seen me be attacked so many times. So, now there are images, albeit bad ones, for anyone who wants to see the only form of proof I can provide.

            Marye, those of us who have been around for any length of time know you've had great success here at HP.  We don't doubt or question you, not one bit.  And like someone else said, if HP didn't know you were that successful, they wouldn't have put you up with the success stories.  So, please take heart in the fact that legitimate hubbers don't need you to prove anything to us.

        Marye - it's good to see you, and yes, you are still a hero and legend here.  Just because the Panda Frenzy changed the game here doesn't mean you lost your place of honor as a role model and success story. And great person.  You deserve the best - I hope everything you are doing here and elsewhere turns to gold for you.  Truly, I do.

      I am a cynic.  A miserable vindictive cynic who rarely takes anything at face value - particularly on the internet.

      So how come I believe Marye Audet unconditionally and yet the 'other' poster stands out as a fantasist at best.

      Marye, I very much doubt that any hubber over two years old would even think to question your success. Anyone from back then is probably well aware of the earnings that were possible.

      And for newer hubbers - I've never understood what would be gained by lying about ones earnings here - it's  not like they work for Hubpages. And if it were fake, why would Marye admit she's earning only a small percentage of what she used to?

      Trolls are people who either know it's true and simply want to pick away at successful writers because THEY can't emulate that success. Or too new to remember Hubpage's golden times of earning. smile

      @ Marye, you have nothing to prove or to defend. Bottom line is that HP know what you were earning, therefore they would never have included you in the 'success stories' if you weren't earning that. At my peak I was earning over $700 per month, and I didn't write sales hubs like many did (which was where the big money was). Those of us who were here for 5 years or more know what you earned has to be the truth. As you know, to earn those sorts of figures now is incredibly difficult.

                    I am relatively new here at HP and read other hubbers' hubs as a way of learning what works and what doesn't work.  I clicked on your hub page and learned that you do not have any hubs published. Perhaps I am looking at the wrong hub page.  Just want to learn the secret for your success.  How much have you earned per month prior to this success? I am considering signing up for Ad Sense.

                      How can you see that? I don't know how to look at anyone's stats.
                      I did have every hub published until today when I received the news that 5 of them were pulled... and two of them, although published, have had ads disabled b/c HP's didn't like the content (Deluged and Cellular attraction.)
                      I have yet to make my first payout and when I do, I doubt it will be a notable amount. I'm probably not the hubber to ask, being fairly new to this myself. I wish you the best here though!
