Put me down for $5 - I will forward it to your PP account. Can I get one of the old Adolph magnets, just for starting the collection?
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.
Cutting remark? Did you think I was making fun of someone? I was just joking that I don't know how to do all the tech stuff that everyone on here seems to know how to do. I don't know what "nose too small" means either.
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.
Mary, you were in no way being doubted. Especially those of us who have been here for a while. It sadly came from someone that we feel is being less than honest about their success at HP, and used you as an example of HP success stories.
Marye (I apologize for misspelling your name in that first post),
I'd love to find one of those myself....I just reached payout for the first time in 2-1/2 years. It made me smile, but I most certainly could have used $1000 a month SEVERAL times in those last 30 months.
Mind Explorer, I can only give you images of my account. There really is no other way, and I have learned that people who wish to think the worst of you invariably will. There are those that believe the Earth is flat, after all. So, these screenshot are not for you but for those who trusted me anyway.
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.
Marye, I'm surprised you made such an effort to defend yourself. It would not be much of an exaggeration to say ALL experienced hubbers here recognize your achievements (in HPs heydays), and your trustworthy reputation.
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?
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.
Marye, what you earned then and what you earn now is your private business. You shouldn't have to feel obligated to reveal your earnings just because somebody else has got a thorn up their rear end about it.
Save your energy for what you do best, writing, and having a great life.
"In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Most glorious Prince of the Heavenly Armies, Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in "our battle against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.
Come to the assistance of men whom God has created to His likeness and whom He has redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. " [Eph., 6:12]
I've done my best to ignore this thread because I feel bad that your parents dropped you on your head and told you that you weren't special. I couldn't help but get involved... you know, saving humanity, one little lonely lost girl at a time. I'm sorry you were dropped on your head; but you are certainly special and never forget it!
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.
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.
@ 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!
And she changed the picture? I have no idea why. Seriously though, this person reminds me of all the mentally ill people I used to volunteer to sit with and read to in the hospital. They were charming people, but some of them could become the oddest ducks in two seconds flat...
Hahah, I'm flattered. I just can't sit still and I've been lucky enough to have traveled a lot and been exposed to a lot of different things. But I swear, I'm 19 and despite the rumors filtering through Hub comments, I'm just a teen who is still prone to immature comebacks, giggle fits and Netflix binges. But if you think it would help, I have no problem playing The Sims 3 for a couple of years.
Wrong venue? Is this a movie theater or something?
I was merely joking that the phrase was something you could have searched to find that picture, and I was being silly about it by including an awful low-budget movie that the picture vaguely brought to mind.
It doesn't apply to the larger topic of the thread. It applies to the picture you had originally posted (which you then changed after I commented) of a bunch of people crawling on their knees. If you'd seen the movie (I recommend you don't), it features a similar setup of people and I was reminded of the movie. I was joking that you had to google something related to "The Human Centipede" to find such a picture because the picture seemed originally a bit random to me.
Any further questions? I think that's fairly clear.
