I believe it might be a small miracle... I got an Amazon sale! Although I've been away for awhile, right before I took my hiatus, I felt like I was finally getting the hang of using the Amazon capsules. A few hubs have been getting steady (although comparatively small to anyone actually making money) hits - but never any actual sales.
Then, yesterday, I got an email from Amazon letting me know that my revenue was not yet at the level where I could receive payment. "What revenue?" - thought I. I checked my account, and sure enough, I have one sale. And, a whopping 40cents burning a hole in my virtual pocket.
I'm nearly giddy.

Yay! It may only be $0.40, but it is more than you had before! Great news!
Thanks guys! I really am excited. I don't do hubpages as a "money maker" - obviously based on my number of hubs. Its been a great outlet for writing, and learning the technical ins and outs is a fun challenge for me.
So, based on time and volume alone, I don't expect a lot of cash to come out of it, but when I do get some ad revenue, I see it as a sign that I'm learning.
