Hello, my nickname is Pente. I was born autistic and I still have trouble perceiving the emotions of other people. On the positive side though, I have a very strong aptitude with logic, mathematics and computers.

My family traveled a lot and we were dirt poor. I worked my way through college in California by living in my car. I received a degree in electronics. I have traveled extensively, been in some trouble with the law, and overall had a fairly hard life. I definitely consider myself to be a survivor.

I am familiar with HTML, CSS, and PHP and was starting to build a niche website when I ran across this site. I was having trouble defining my niche and realized this site would be perfect for articles that didn't fit that niche.

I am here at Hubpages to practice my writing, test markets for different ideas, and to do some experiments. I want to see what works and what doesn't work. My primary goal is learning and my secondary goal is earning some extra money.

Current Goal: Put up a hundred hubs and analyze results.

Dec 5, 2010: Started Hubbing.

Jan 1, 2011: 37 Hubs, 1125 views, AdS $3.20, Ama $10.94 (7 sales)

Feb 1, 2011: 60 Hubs, 3040 views, AdS $5.37, Ama $1.00 (1 sale)

Mar 1, 2011: 85 Hubs, 5652 views, AdS $5.97, Ama $0.60 (2 sales)

Apr 1, 2011: 91 Hubs, 8184 views, AdS $5.14, Ama $1.32 (2 sales)

May 1, 2011: 91 Hubs, 9932 views, AdS $8.57, Ama $0

June 1, 2011: 92 Hubs, 11,655 views, AdS $0.95, Ama $0, HA $4.61

July 1, 2011: 92 Hubs, 16,892 views, AdS $3.07, Ama $1.80, HA $2.82

Aug 1, 2011: 93 Hubs, 18,123 views, Ads $1.54, Ama $0, HA $0

Sept 1, 2011: 93 Hubs, 20,053 views, Ads $3.51, Ama $0, HA $0

Oct 1, 2011: 95 Hubs, 23,653 views, Ads $4.52, Ama $1.75, HA $0

Nov 1, 2011: 98 Hubs, 29,036 views, Ads $12.93, Ama $0.36, HA $0

Dec 1, 2011: 98 Hubs, 33,001 views, Ads $11.02, Ama $0, HA $0

In early 2012, Google changed for the worst, some of my best hubs weren't even listed on Google. Views dropped over 90% and after several attempst to improve views with no success, I stopped writing hubs. Later I removed some of my poorly written or obsolete hubs. As of September 3, 2014, I have had 71,000 views and have received one $100 payout from Google.

*Hubs & views are cumulative, revenue is monthly, AdS = AdSense, Ama= Amazon, HA= Hub Ads.
