    ...the lower my CPM. So I make no more money. I love that about the HP Ad Program. Nice to lock in low returns with no hope for more.

      My CPM is highest on Wednesday and Thursday.  So, though I tend to get a fair amount of views over the weekend, advertisers don't acknowledge that.  I assume they go on overall trends, and that trend is that people aren't as active online during Summer months on the weekends.

      I was a millionaire before I came to HP. Made the money running my own business. HP makes money, but not enough to get me excited anymore. Less than a year in I was kicking over $1,000 per month. My numbers are nowhere near that now. Of course, I haven't published many new hubs lately. My other online writing has performed very well, beyond anything earned here.

      As for the Hubby Award, only my wife can call me hubby! big_smile

        awww, you already have a wife?  I was just going to ask you to marry me.  (sigh) All the rich guys... I mean, all the nice guys are already taken. big_smile

        I read a hub the other day showing a graph of the hubber's earnings with CPM averaging over $10.  Good for him.  The last two days my CPM is down to less than $3.  Low weekend traffic, combined with $2+ CPM, is very sad indeed.  I should stop checking my HP earnings in the weekends.

        You were earning over $1,000 per month a few months ago?  Cool!

          I wasn't a millionaire when I met my wife. Her love and kindness built an environment conducive to wealth building.

          I am planning a hub outlining how to make serious money online in an unusual way. I make more than the average worker on this one idea alone. It takes about 15 minutes a day.

          Coming soon.

              Now I'm committed to writing the hub. When I'm back from vacation I'll get to it.
