    I am proud to announce at this moment, at the tender age of only two weeks as a Hubpages member, I have now earned one dollar! I am so proud. Thank you...thank you...no pictures, please...thank you...

      Yeah, that's pretty darn impressive Desmith3! I may be making well over $10 a day today, but I had just pennies and tumbleweeds in my account for months!!!! Sounds like you're off to an awesome start!

    Luckily, I already had an Adsense account from previous endeavors, so I guess I got a head start. My Adsense earnings at this point, however, is a grand total of .02.

    That's still a start ! I'm frustrated because I have a hub that is on the first page of google search that has grabbed almost 700 organic views just from google's search engine, yet I have nothing to show for it. LOL

        Crawling for four months to reach the two digit figures in dollars but I know the things multiply at HP geometrically instead of arithmetically.

    Thanks everyone for all the comments! Haven't been on since last night and today inbox flooded! It's good to make that first dollar, but what's even better is the sense of community here on Hubpages. Best wishes to everyone on many more dollars to come for us all, there's plenty of room!

      Congrats to you! I'm up to $10 after 6 months and I have already made a $1 so far this month.. It's exciting isn't it. Keep up the good work and keep at it, I'm sure we both will just keep going up!

        Yeah, it's hilarious how excited one can get over a dollar, but it's great fun!

          LOL - I started out with just a penny, the other half looked at me strange when I was excited about that.. but I have been doing things online for a while and it was very exciting to "finally" make something, even if it was only a penny! And my belief is, "If you can make one penny, you can make two"
