Making Money Online - Hitting 100 Hubs - Progress on HubPages

100 Hubs: How did that happen?

100 hubs. I'm at a loss for words. For one thing, I'm tired. My big 100th hub is coming in the middle of a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. So I'm feeling kind of dry.

I'd like to thank the academy, and my mom, and God....Okay, I jest, but that's a start.

Hmmmmm....Too many people to thank for helping me along in the journey. The "academy" music will start playing as a cue to get off the stage. So maybe I'll first look at some accolades I've earned and some tips I've learned. Hey, that rhymed!

Rhyme it did. I've shared poetry on HubPages, which has been cathartic. I've shared recipes (and found many, too). I've shared money saving tips. I've written about pets and grammar--two great loves--and a variety of other things. I've enjoyed it.

I feel that my creative juices flow better as I am practicing my writing every day. Oh, let's see. How about a few stats? Am I earning any money?

The first day I earned actual money was right after my Adsense ads kicked in. A whopping 6 cents. Boy, was I excited. After about six months, I earned the magic $50 payout from HubPages. And now, not even two months later, I'm looking at a second payout soon. My earnings have grown every month, and I hope they continue. I'd love to get a payout every month even if only $50. I feel that I'm building a portfolio of writing samples plus networking with other writers and getting my work out there. The money is nice, but it's not the largest part of the big picture. As for the possibility of earning money on HubPages, yes, I think it's very possible, as mine has grown every month I've been here, nearly doubling over the past month.


Let's look at a few stats

100 hubs

Over 35,314 views total

Lately from 500 to 800 views per day. Before March, it was usually lower than 500. I want more on a consistent basis!

Perhaps the 30 in 30 has helped, but my daily revenue more than doubled these past few weeks. Will that last? I don't know. A few days I made nearly $2.50 (3 days in a row). I was stoked! I see the fact that my earnings have increased every month since I started in August as a positive sign. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it continues.


I must thank people!

Okay, I have to thank a few people.

100 hubs. Who woulda thunk? I remember JT Walters telling me, as I was overwhelmed with time constraints, to do just one per week and I would have 52 in a year. Well, 8 months later, I have 100. That's cool. Thanks, JT, for the long messages answering my numerous questions. Thanks.

Who got me into HubPages? It was Lela Davidson, a local writer who was teaching a two night training on online writing. HubPages was one of the venues she talked about, and she is actually one of the success stories on HubPages. She hasn't been really active lately, as she is also doing other things, such as publishing books! Check her out at http://leladavidson.com/ if you get a chance. I owe her a lot.

And JS Matthew, who greeted me and welcomed me, encouraging me on those first few hubs. And poets Vincent Moore aka Saddlerider, along with Epigramman, who told me they liked my poetry. Liked my poetry? Are you kidding me? I was elated.

Oh, so many more encouragers and friends from the beginning.

Happy to be at HubPages!
Happy to be at HubPages!

Supporters: I'd like to thank my cats....

I've listed four early supporters above. Dare I mention more without hurting feelings? Others have been brave enough, but I don't want to leave anybody out. I can try, though. Just know that you are important to me even if I forget to mention you. There are so many great people and so little space.

Some early supporters, besides the four above, were thejeffriestube, Sunshine625, and Arlene V. Poma, who left early comments on my hubs. Wesman Todd Shaw helped me learn about different sites to put links on. Lucky Cats was sweetly supportive, as was Sunnie Day. Vinaya Ghimire said beautiful things. I bonded with Mom'sSecret over loss. MAKUSR and Movie Master had lovely things to share. Ktrapp and Cloverleaf were always supportive, as was dear Lord de Cross. I knew I could ask anything of Just Ask Susan. WillStarr and Cutters would pop in from time to time. And I got to be around lovely ladies chanroth, FloraBreenRobinson, Jedijessicuh, and Cardisa. Knowledgeable homesteadbound came along, as did RealHousewife and MissOlive, all who have taught me so much. And don't forget the controversial hubluvvin' Cagsil and dear, full-of-heart kenneth avery!

More keep coming. Sholland from a nearby state, Daniella Lopez from my state, sweet Marcy Goodfleisch, and the hilarious Ardie! Billybuc has become one of my dearest supporters and advisers, and cclitgirl my fellow grammar geek. The PoeticFool and ThoughtSandwiches both make me think. Stephhicks inspires me, as does randomcreative and jeannieinabottle. I love the sweet spirits of Ruchira, vocalcoach, and Sharyn's Slant.

So many more I am getting to know: Deborah Brooks, DeborahNeyens, DzyMsLizzy, eiddwen, Fennelseed, fpherj48, davenmidtown, drbj, BakerRambles, marcoujor, tammyswallow, melbel, Patty English, Mark Ewbie, Melovy, Millionaire Tips, mistyhorizon, Curiad, DaisyMariposa, teaches, RusticLiving, AudreyHowitt, PDXKaraokeGuy, Perspycacious, Maddie Ruud, uninvitedwriter, thePracticalMommy, alocsin, molometer, AEvans, Turtlewoman, and A.A. Zavala. Do I have to say more? Oh, please message me to add you, and I will, because that's the fear of listing. Leaving someone significant out. Or if you see I've left someone out, please nudge me. I'll fix it. Forgive my tired brain. There are so many newbies who are also growing on me. Or old-timers who I am just now running into. I am such a perfectionist, and I don't want to slight anyone. I'm sure I will be revising this hub as I think, Oh my gosh, how could I have not listed that delightful hubber?

I've also highlighted some of the names so you can click on some of their hubs or hubs about them. I would have highlighted more, but some of them wouldn't bring up links. Go figure. I bet I could do them all if I knew how to do the HTML thingy. There's always so much to learn.

The academy people are staring at me. The music is getting too loud for me to speak anymore. I must go. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Will I write 100 more hubs? Will I make more money at this venture? Will I make more friends on this site? The answer to all three questions is yes. There is no other place I'd rather be.

      Thanks, Sharyn! I appreciate your comments, especially the one about the humor and sarcasm.

Thanks, friend. You made my day! :-)

      Holy Crap Vicki ~ I'm late to the party but not that late, gosh, you are up to 125 hubs! Whoooo hoooo! Congratulations on your milestone PLUS! You really need to slow down a bit so I can catch up, ha. Seriously, I always enjoy your writing. Especially the funny stuff. I love the humor and sarcasm. I often wish I could write like you. Best wishes to you! So glad you shared your milestone with us,

      Victoria, I really, really enjoyed this Hub. You have a great sense of humor combined with your great writing ability. I've only been here on HubPages for 2 months but it's good to know what can happen over the next few months if I stick with it. Your excitement over earning your first 6 cents was great to read and I can tell you that I was equally excited when I earned my first 2 cents. Great job.

      Victoria, this is a wonderful achievement and I am in awe of you! I have enjoyed lots of your 30 in 30 days hubs along the way, well done! I will never do 30 in 30 days - it would be too much for me; I find it difficult enough to do 2 per week. Awesome, voted up and shared - it will inspire others!

      It takes me a while to write a hub, too, Blossom, especially to find and edit photos. Plus I have to keep revising and going back to the hub. I just happen to be in a position now where I am home more. It's a huge challenge, and I may never do it again, but I will finish the 30! Thanks for your great comments, Blossom!

What struck me was your humor and your puppy. Then you told me you had cats... then came the recipes and then the challenges. Hope to see you up there with the rest of the stars. We are a click away for any suggestion and friendly words. You are such a sweet thang of a friend.

      The minimum payout for HP ads are $50. Google is $100. My Google ads total is building much more slowly.

And you gave me a GREAT idea: teach about online writing! We could do that! You teach one at your community college, and I'll teach one at mine! Then, we will pepper it with some Spanish and voila! There we go! ;) Hehe. You are such an inspiration. Keep on hubbing!!

      Saw the notice on Facebook minutes ago about this and had to stop by right away. Thank-you for including me in your 100th hub, Vicki. Congratulations on this achievement. Keeping up 800 views a day would be great. Keep up your strength. The 30/30 challenge does take up a lot of time and energy.
