      Great job! The AdSense payout is a nice chunk of change. I'm sure you have something awesome (or awesomely practical) planned for it. big_smile

        I am delighted, thank you very much.  I will probably put it towards some world travel at the end of the year.
        We had a competition around February/ March time last year, now, that could help swell the funds:)

      How exciting and congrats.  Did you wait till you had a number of hubs before applying.  I've only got 5 hubs and so, am waiting unless you advise differently.

      I hope it is more than  you can spend in one place.

        Welcome to HubPages.  I was lucky.  I was accepted after ten hubs, it may be advisable for you to wait wait until you have at least that.

        The proceeds will buy me more than a few postcards to send home but I am non the less delighted as it is another milestone passed.

      Thanks DJ for your very kind support.  I hope that my writing extends to more than tutorials:) but I know what you mean.  I am fortunate that I have earned fairly regularly from the HubPages program for quite a long time - as we know, every little bit helps.

    Congratulations!  People say that the first payout is the most difficult; after that, those payouts are easier to get and come more frequently.  I hope that will be your experience as well.
