    I just got my first payment from Hub Pages. It's been exactly one year of writing here. I opened my account two years ago, but was too busy to write here.

    The frightening thing is that the part of my account where I gave my PayPal information cannot be accessed. It asks for security questions but will not take my answers. Fortunately, I had given the correct information when I started writing, but that section cannot be accessed again. Another writer said that he had the same problem, so this needs to be looked into.

    Here's to another payment in about a year!

      Thats awsome and congrats! Although I would not think it would take a year to get another payment. Maybe it's just the topics you choose. Either way, glad you're having fun and keep up the good work!

    Congratulations, Xenonlit!
    See, even us "socialists" can participate in and appreciate the capitalist society, eh?
    Seriously, the first payment is the hardest. Here's to many  more for you!

      I don't think I ever will. They have no help for it.

      Thank you Kieran. Those are kind and encouraging words. As soon as I finish my second book, I'll be able to write more.
