I had hoped to make my first payout this month, but realized it was a stretch as I would have to once more double the previous month's earnings.
I went to bed needing only a few more dollars and hoped to make it today.
Checked adsense first thing this morning (of course! ) and had earned 3 cents. Well, it's a start, and I never get clicks first thing in the morning, anyway. Checked the month totals once more, to find that late last night I got a few more clicks, including the best paying one ever. Over the limit!

Shazwelln, prettydarkhorse - thanks! It is indeed good news to me, and I expect the next one to come faster. Not next month - I would have to double the income again, and that has to end sometime or I'll overtake Bill Gates in a few months!

I signed on sometime in March, I think, and wrote a couple of hubs to see who commented before I even discovered people were making money doing just that! It wasn't until mid-June that I actually got serious, signed up with Adsense and began to write for money.
I hope you're right about the second payment; the goal is to earn the next by the end of the year.

Hi Hubbers, I'm a newbie, and I didn't come here expecting to make big bucks. But I'm excited about earning my first penny here after six days, five hubs, and 61 views. Many seasoned hubbers have advised newbies not to...
