I'm having a hard time today. I know others have far worse things going on in life, but in the heat of the moment its hard to see past myself.
I work as a drug and alcohol counselor. Recently I recieved my licensure which in my contract I was then supposed to recieve a $1 increase in pay. That was back in January. I was told last week that everything went through and I would recieve a retro check this week. Today, they told me it would not happen till mid-April. In the mean time, my bills are piling up and I'm getting discouraged and pretty stressed out, I got kids to worry about. If it was just me I wouldn't care.
So, I began writing on Hubpages in hopes of trying to supplement my income, though its difficult to find the time to write. I don't know what to do, guess I'm just looking for words of encouragement.
Seriously, I'd quit wasting my time writing hubs and use that time to work a real second job that paid some real money.
I agree with Disturbia.
You can't possibly earn a substantial amount in such a short time on HubPages, and sometimes not even after a long time.
Better would be to take on a part-time job until the bills are paid. You can go back to Hubbing when that's done.
Being a writer was never a reliable profession, unless you hit big and become famous. Untill then I second Camlo and Disturbia. You need a stable job.
Before the economy went south, I had two part-time jobs as well as my full-time job. Thats the problem, I cant find a second part-time job.
I'm already feeling better, just needed to vent. I know i'll get through this, I've been trhough worse. Thanks for all of you letting me whine!

I got up expecting my paypal payment from Hubpage Ads but it is not there yet. What time do you usually receive your payment?

Mine tends to be Night-time, but considering the amount of traffic from the US I get it must be Daytime over there!

Google usually releasing paying from the 26th of the month to the last day of the month. This is the first time I have not had a payment issued and it is into the next month.

Everyone has their reasons for why they do the things they do. There are just some people in this world that irritate the hell out of us. Someone that irritates and infuriates you may not do the same to someone else. My...
