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.
