First payout for having fun!

    Although I have been here for a while I have not worked very hard on this site.  Instead, I have been having a blast here on Hubpages.  Making the first $100.00 seems like a bonus somehow as I enjoy writing my articles anyway.

    I have learned much about how to increase my traffic but again, I do not work too hard at it.  I have several other means of income so I guess that has something to do with it. 

    Just thought I would post this for the other members who do not wish to destroy their joy of writing.  There's no reason one can't have fun and make a few bucks at the same time, is there?

      Getting paid for something you enjoy doing is not a common thing. A few people get a chance to enjoy this.
      Well done!

        I am double lucky Ultimate Hubber.  Since I run a small farm I can enjoy the outdoors and plenty of hunting and fishing.  Plus, some days I rarely see a human being at all!  I am indeed a lucky person.
