Hey, congratulations. I do get it. I went for, I think, about a month before ever seeing (if I remember correctly) 2.83. For most people (some more than others) it takes some time for your Hubs to be found (and whatever else has to happen). Too many people get discouraged too soon. Keep writing.
There is a button next to the F12 key that should be labeled "Prt Scrn/Sys Rq" or something similar. Push that button. Open a program like Paint. Go to Edit and click Paste. Then Save it and you can keep that moment forever.
I am just here writing and getting into the idea of it all - I reckon to get around to the money side at some point - but I can really understand the excitement of it moving forward positively - good on yer ! and deserved I must say.
Congratulations! Yes, this HubPages thing does have a strange effect on us. When I earned my first 15p, I was so excited that my husband thought I'd won the lottery. I've never seen him look as appalled as he did when it turned out to be 15p on Adsense.
Honestly, I'm not really sure what's done it. I did just publish a hub, and I did the best I could with what little I know about keywords....I must've stumbled upon a good one or two, but I don't know which ones they are!!
Way to go!!! After 8 months I am up to a whopping $78 on Adsense and finally....this past week had two Amazon orders/delivered and have a $1.43 referral in my account. I am on my way to retireme....oops, well not yet! lol
That's right, we're not alone in celebrating our click And hey! *pokes your shoulder* Don't talk like that. We'll make it, one click at a time...one hub at a time! We'll keep each other at it, and we'll match Michael's 78 dollars! *dramatic Southern drawl* And we'll nevuh be hongry again!!
Well if I'm going to match Michael, I'll need to earn... hmm, let's see... $63.77. In one month. Nope, I think he's got me beat I'll nevuh be hongry, but maybe I'll be a little peckish. Yup, I could snack.
@crazd: of course we can always celebrate on HubPages chica! that's why I love it here But the people who know me in real life tend to get the glazed over look when I say things like "Hey! I got an awesome click today WOO HOOO"
you'd think that cynics like some of us really are wouldn't get so jazzed about a few dollars or a few more fans or a few thousand page views - but holey moley, its so fun! It is like remember when your parents decided you were finally old enough to get an allowance? and you got your $2 every Sunday after church and immediately blew it on food at the Dairy Queen, even though every Friday you promised yourself you would save it so that next Friday you could go after school with your friends to the soda fountain for a phosphate, instead? oh , ok, I got a little carried away there. having one of those nights. manic, you know?
gee thanks! that made MY night! I do get awful wordy sometimes and then I slink back into my corner fearful that I've just bored everyone to tears. it is a definite manic/depressive thing with me and if I did not have this outlet I would be in a straitjacket, I'm sure . . .so thanks for putting up with me!
Aww wow, mega, I had NO IDEA you felt that way! I can't believe it; you always come off as wonderful, confident, and exuberant - and with a completely different take on the world. I really look forward to reading your posts and things. I really get a great kick out of your style - it's completely unique and creative.
I think motivation is important to releasing your creativity, and mine is not about making money, it is about being creative. That being said, it is nice to make a few "sense" (cents) along the way. Good news and best of luck to all your writers! Bt do enjoy the journey.
All right, guys. I've gotta run...Have some work for a client to do, but it's been fun, and I'm SO glad to have friends who understand that this 2.50 really seems like...more than just money. I'm full of hope and love and inspiration and all because of YOU!
Yesterday I had more of a pay from adsense then I do today. Instead of increasing they decreased my pay amount, is this because one of my hubs need to be revised? What's the deal with this, any help and knowledge is...
Can someone please explain to me why I have affiliate codes and have started earning money on my hubpages articles, yet I seem to have no access to Adsense? All Adsense shows me is a window that says they're...
First, please forgive me if this has been asked a hundred times already. I've tried searching through the forums, but without a better search feature, it's difficult to find out if someone has already asked about the...
I just hit $1,000 of Adsense Earnings this month. This is a huge deal for me, because I had to learn a whole new way of making money - and I hated every minute of it. So why did I do this? I live right next door to...
Inspired by fellow hubber Misha and his fabulous success - One hub = $100 a day - I've decided in a good natured way to see if I can get a hub of mine to do that. I usually go after long tail phrases and get a bit of...
Let us all rejoice; I have finally had my first day (January 9th), since I started using HubPages Ad system, where I have earned over $10.Things are looking up as I'm getting lovely waves of traffic from all my work...
