My experiment with hubpages

When I started with Hubpages, I thought It was another scam. I was the very skeptic because of many online scams prevailed in the net. I tried many referral programs. They promised me to pay for promoting their products. But I never got a dime from those programs. When I happened to know about the (I don't remember how I came to know about it) and google Adsense, I thought that it is another scam. Still, I joined for just test and see how it works. I am glad that I made the right decision. In the first month, after the approval of my Adsense account, I got a few visits but without any money. The second month I earned few cents, that encouraged me to continue with Hubpages.

Another thing that motivated me to go ahead with the experiment was that I am dealing with well-reputed companies like Google and I am glad that I took that decision to experiment it. Without any investment, except my time and Internet connection, I started my journey towards a new horizon. It was well worth to take that initiative. Thanks to the encouraging people who throng around the forum of HubPages, who guided me whenever there is a question. Without them, I could have been stumbled and quit the journey half way without any earnings.

First-month earnings were in cents. Again I thought, In this way, It would take many years to reach the minimum payment limit. In the second month also it was a few cents. Not reaching a Dollar. I was skeptic about the program. But I am glad I was reading all the experienced hubber's comments in the forum. Some said it would take many months to reach the minimum payment limit of 100 dollars. I listened to them and I continued my experiment with the

But I noticed one thing. As the number of hubs increased, the earnings increased. New hubs and old hubs are working simultaneously and generating money for me. Old hubs are an asset and new ones are the add-on to that asset. Another advantage of HubPages is that it is an automated system which put money into my account automatically. I don't have to work continuously as I did with other programs. Just write an article and publish it. It will generate money for me in the coming years and put that money into my account. What a wonderful way of making money.

After a few months, I am started to earn money in dollars. 5 dollars, 7 dollars, 10 dollars. It was growing. It increased my hope. I created more hubs. And at last, after 14 months, I reached my minimum payment limit. It took only 4 months to reach my second payout limit. Then I received my third payout within 3 months. Now I am getting paid every month.

I know if you happened to face any of the online scams, you would be the skeptic in joining HubPages or blogging.
