This month, proud to say, I earned $1299 from my Squidoo account. Isn't that great? I have just joined HubPages, and am very excited to expand my online writing career. Yes, it's possible to earn quite a few bucks online if you are willing to labor behind it. It has taken me one and a half year to reach that mark of $1299. Life is good! Party today guys!
Guys, there is no reason to get all worked up over such a meaningless post. If you really earned the money, congratulations. If you didn't and this is false, then all I can say is that you have issues.
Congrats and thanks so much for sharing your success. It motivates us all. I'm new to HP, as well as monetizing my writing in general. Just trying to get my blog on AdSense and ad HP. I thought I'd end up at Squidoo eventually, so glad to hear you are doing well there.
If I understand you correctly you have earned $1,299.00 in one month at Squidoo? That not only sounds unreasonable but highly unlikely. I am not doubting your word, but you have to admit how unlikely it is. If I may, is there any reason you have not posted any content on HP other than this forum post?
The problem with your "facts" are that they are not verifiable. Anyone can come on a message board and brag/boast about what they did or didn't earn. Show us the account or refrain. The frequent updates from Google and the mass exodus of Squidoo leaves us a bit jaded and skeptical.
Prove your facts as correct, without unverifiable assertions. It's simple to do, really.
I doubt it's envy. It's scepticism. It doesn't make a lot of sense for you to jump on the forums boasting about your online success before you've written even one Hub. And the fact you haven't completed the links on your profile - that makes me wonder if you really have the knowledge it takes to earn that kind of money online. So I suspect I'm not the only one thinking you must have a hidden agenda.
Also, I know a couple of people who have been doing very well on Squidoo. They tell me Squidoo recently got Google slapped and most people's income got decimated.
"Some people punch cushions when they are angry at friends; a college student may snap at his or her roommate when upset about an exam grade.
Displacement can act in a chain-reaction, with people unwittingly becoming both victims and perpetrators of displacement. For example, a man is angry with his boss, but he cannot express this so he hits his wife. The wife hits one of the children, possibly disguising this as punishment (rationalization)."
Well done, Klush!! You must have really worked hard to achieved that. That is some motivation for me to work ever harder to reach that mark. At least, you've confirmed that it is possible to make a bit of money online. Thanks so much for sharing the wonderful news and best of luck for the future!
There are writers who make this much money writing for Squiddo. When I wrote for eHow there were writing making $2,000 plus. Some writers had over a thousand articles.
Klush, if you are a writer, you know a writing community is much like any community. If you come in like gang busters, people will wonder what are your motives. My first impression was not that you were lying, but but that perhaps you had an affiliate writing program, you would be hawking, and were trying to establish credibility!
The real issue Klush is, your introduction to the group seems a bit pretentious, and off putting. Example: A man moved into a new house, and knocks on his neighbors door and says, "Hi, I'm Bob your neighbor, I work at Microsoft and I make $400.000 a year!" If I was that neighbor, I would think, this quick weird. First of all, I don't know you, and secondly, why are you telling me how much money you make a year. I didn't ask.
Don't worry about the rough start, if you are the real deal, we will get to know you better though your great content!
PS. It would me nice to put a link or the name of your page on Squiddo, account, if you want to establish a little credibility.
Klush, I hope you read that "sincere post" thoroughly. What 2besure was saying is, the way to make friends in a new neighbourhood is NOT to strut down the street, loudly proclaiming how fabulous you are. The way to make friends is to arrive, take part in conversations, and give people the chance to make their own decision based on your actions.
So, if you're genuine, walk away from this thread right now. If you don't keep fuelling it, people will forget it pretty quickly.
Complete your profile properly and write a few Hubs. Go and comment helpfully on other people's Hubs. Follow a few Hubbers whose work you like. Participate positively in a few forum threads. Then you may be surprised what a warm and friendly place HubPages can be.
The OP is probably telling the truth about his earnings at Squiddo. I do that good or better there every month. So it is possible. But it does take work. 12 hours a day plus. And I earn quite a bit from many sites. And no I don't use the same user name at all of them. I stopped doing that when I was copied over and over.

I read every post to see if you ever posted a link to your Squiddo account before I commented. I see you posted several links to different forum posts, but no links to your Squiddo account yet. This let's everyone know that you are a liar. You've made yourself look extremely foolish and now there is no way around that. Even if your intentions were to gain followers for some "service" you may be selling, there was a better approach than bragging. It's called being subtle.
You need to understand that there are people on here who have been members of HubPages for a long time, so for you to join and claim that you can achieve what they haven't and then not be able to back it up completely destroys your credibility. A wise man once told me, "you are a master of what you don't say." People like you prove him right everyday.
The only way you will gain your credibility back is by posting proof of your Squiddo account AND proof of your $1299 per month. If you aren't willing to do these things, you should just back out of HubPages now and save yourself some embarrassment.
Step 1: Be disgruntled. Step 2: Make a Hubpages account. Don't write any Hubs. Make the profile look like it belongs to a random person in a random country who is harmless, strangely happy-go-lucky and innocent. Step 3: Two minutes after you make an account, choose an arbitrary monetary value. Step 4: Claim that you made that amount of money on another writing site and express a positive desire of some sort for Hubpages. step 5: Post bizarre, senseless comments when people ask for proof or discredit you. Step 6: Don't provide proof but continue to make circular claims that you are right and therefore you are right and therefore you did earn that money because you are right. also you are right. Step 7: Use the negative comments against you to bash Hubpages and pretend to be shocked that Hubpages was not as exciting as you first thought it was. Step 8: Continue with nonsensical comments. Bonus points if other people try to respond just as nonsensically. Step 9: Lie low for a bit and then rinse and repeat.
