This Month I Earned 43 Cents

This month I earned some money.
My hubs, they do pay off.
The outlook's getting sunny.
My friends no longer scoff.

I don't know how it happened,
the number just appeared.
To my writing someone cottoned
and with a click, they cheered.

43 cents more than last month
43 cents more than last month

The saga continues

This month I earned some money.
I typed my fingers to the bone.
Perhaps the words were funny
but the truth remains unknown.

This month increased my fortune.
An advertiser likes me.
My readers read, and harken
to my prose that is so flowery.

Encouragement from the author

You, too, can earn some dollars.
Big bucks are there for taking.
The Internet needs more scholars
and for content, Google's aching.

I made enough to buy an orange.
But my rhyming's really nervy.
Please, take this hubbers challenge on:
You, too, can prevent scurvy.

... and on it drones

This month I made a half-buck.

The situation's rosy.

The payment's due on my truck,

down to the bank I'll mosey.

Another capsule so I can attain 200 words

This month I sold a product.
on the Internet I'm rocking.
My family is proud of me
and my friends have stopped the mocking.

How fun this was! And relatable too. Four months, 103 hubs, total earnings $19.00. I'm rich!

lrc7815 : deep dark secret that the SEO 'experts' will not reveal to you: it takes time for hubs to organically percolate up into the top 10. They won't tell you that because they can't lord it over you like some mystical knowledge. Check this out:

Love it! We must celebrate every dime. For some reason, every dollar I earn here on HubPages gives me a great deal of satisfaction, much more so than at any job I've had. Voted up, funny and shared.

Wow, nicomp, 43 cents is a fortune indeed,

Now you can buy whatever you need.

Pretty soon I'm sure I'll be able to say,

Why I knew poor nicomp way back in the day.

Does our hard work ever pay off? Don't think so, as they keep changing things, just so we can't make any real money. Your hub did give me a chuckle, because it is so true.

Hubpages won't allow poetry to be indexed by Google, unless it's of epic length. If Lewis Carroll had an account here he'd go broke.
