    don't want to count ALL my chickens before they hatch.. but I can just feel the influx of clicks coming in... the same way i predicted the McCain/Palin sweep of the Electoral College!

    Sure the first $15 dollars took me 2 years to get.. but something tells me an Elmer Fudd craze will soon sweep the world, thereby helping to make my Hubs on the man go viral!

    come ooooooooooooooooooooooon $85 dollars... Daddy wants a new pair of Armani socks!

    OMG... you guys crack me up so much... it didn't come easy to me, Flightkeeper, I spend a *ton* of time publicizing my hubs, it wasn't until almost year two that I got my first pay-out, after the first one they seem to come more quickly.

    Check out my profile page for a link to "She Told Me" ... submit a story there and they've a drop down menu with TONS of other portals you can submit to.  This will really help when "bringing the clicks in," guys.

    so, shameless self-promotion really does pay off!  huh Greek One!

    I think I'll try it when I get around to finally finishing my fiction series and create a few more wacky advice hubs and then there's the women who sing the blues etc. etc.  Gee.  I just don't know where to start.

    Not that money is all that important to me! since, like all the rest of you thugs, I just come here to have a good time!

            fyi, his peccadillos with Pogo and friends were unheard of, mainly because, well, they were unspeakable!  And there were a few offspring who weren't et by the gators, if you'd only just get off your bunghole and bother to search, you'll find their descendants and possibly something to actually entertain us instead of all this thready dribble.  so there!

    Well Greek One, they do say that creative genius is never recognised in life - so the day on which we are all weeping as we tenderly lay your body into your marble tomb is probably the day that you get 150 clicks and your account earns a $1,000 a day from then on.

    So, can you leave me your Adsense earnings in your will and start bunging some Amazon capsules on your hubs?

    Aw, come on now... I'm a stay-at-home mom... I've the time to promote myself.  If I don't do it, nobody else is going to, right guys?  It's not disgusting... it's just, you know, trying to make a go of writing for profit.

    I love writing.  I like money.  When the two can hold hands it makes me wanna whisper sweet nothing's in their delicate ears.

      and  "bunging"  maybe I'll "bunge" some amazon capsules in there, too.  also.  huh?

        bungholes.   can we mention them?  still, technically, I don't think bunging is the term required for inserting amazon capsules in there just to give amazon another recognition thingy.  Let's not get banned over bunging, eh?

    I just happened to check and saw that my HP Adsense is at $103.71 today.

    I don't have to wait for a payout as that money is combined with my other sites earnings and is always more than needed, but if this were my only source, I would have just reached it.

    It took 8 months. I do little outside promotion except Facebook and Twitter, and do not use keyword research (not that I don't think you should; I'm simply too lazy).

    Of course I do have a lot of hubs. Most of them get very little traffic at this point and some (about 10%) have had nothing in the past 30 days.   Total overall traffic since I started is still under 40,000 views.

    My point is just that I do everything "wrong" and still make a little money. I make the same errors at my main site, though that's both much older and larger, so I make much more.

    It is possible to just write and make money. The monthly HP earnings have been steadily increasing, though they are a little flat for January.

    Now imagine what someone could do if they wrote well researched hubs on good keyword choices and promoted them well..

        I am quite certain that it was you who volunteered to mentor me.

        A simple experiment, if you will:

        Place our avatar pictures side by side. Which of us is obviously more intelligent?

        I think that settles that. I shall expect my first mentoring message from you by email soon.

    On further research - I discover that Pogo & Elmer knew (in the biblical way, of course) several of Pogo's relatives!  Therefore, the okefenokee is still full of "material" for you bean counters.  If you would only care to just find their stories and leave for awhile, maybe, just MAYBE, y'all won't be so needy and have to come in the forums every morning and whine about you lack of traffic/income/brainpower/willpower and etc.!  MAYBE!
