I know. Google just sent me my pin a few weeks ago after almost a year since I joined. That's how far I am from reaching $100. But I'm going to get there. I will. I'm visualizing that check, dammit! Haha!
Was the cereal called Hubbio's?? (I'm sorry- I just had to say something silly like that...........I was visualizing Cheerios and the HubPages together...lol..) Congratulations and heres to more where that one came from... here here!!!
You know, I doubt whether I'm ever going to make a dime off this. I'm having fun with it, and it massages my ego a bit when I see my hit totals going up. My wife, on the other hand, feels like I'm spending too much time on the computer, particularly working on my novel....Now if I can get it accepted by a publisher and get a nice advance check, then I expect she'll be much more excited about me writing other books in the series. My attitude is that it's a hobby that I enjoy, and with all the stress in the world, what harm is there in doing something that makes me happy? I think hubbing is like that too.
I agree with you 100% about needing to find something that can help relieve the stress we all operate under. If writing and "talking" on Hub is what does it for you--full speed ahead! I'm sailing in a boat right alone side you!!
Steph - just a suggestion: make sure you are getting paid by paypal rather than a check - which I think they would charge for and will take forever to show up! My first check cam lateApril - but I am now > 1/2 way to the next one : it does spped up :-)
Oops sorry I misled you: paid by direct credit to bank account not paypal. It worked OK into my New Zealand account but you have to get the a/c confirmed first by them posting a few cents first and u confirming the amount and code There was no extra fee and the exchange rate was reasonable - same as I would have paid with paypal anyway
Thanks for the clarification Lissie. I think I'll leave mine as cheque as I don't like handing out my bank account details any more than I have to.
I don't know if Australia is different to other places, but in the Cheque Payment section, I have the option of Standard Delivery (which is sent by ordinary mail) or Secure Delivery (which is sent by courier and costs $24). Needless to say, I picked Standard!
Remember that will be a US check Marisa and it will cost a fortune to cash and weeks to clear even when it actually arrives! I figure google ain't just anyone to give my accuont details to: what can happen they can only put money IN after all :-)
Hi guys. Of course it's never too late to extend congratulations, but I've noticed a pattern today of rather old and time-sensitive threads being brought to the forefront. Please note the original post date before responding to a thread like this.
A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by the senior editor of Kiplinger's about my experiences on Hubpages. I just got an email from the editor, who confirmed that the story will be in the March 2012 edition of...
I tried to post in your hub http://hubpages.com/hub/run-portland-marathon but for some reason my comment would not work on your page, I congratulate you both on your massive achievment of finishing the Portland...
