    I remember reading an article several months about making money monetizing your blog. The author described his story of wondering if this could actually be done, learning about it and how he slowly progressed to some pretty decent monthly earnings. I remember him talking about how excited he was when he made his first 11¢ and how he called his mom and told her. As I have actually delved into this world of monetization, I have wondered when I was going to be able to say I made "something cents" and what that "something" would be.

    So now I know. Today is that day and the something is 7¢.

    I MADE MY FIRST 7¢!!!!

    I've had Amazon Affiliates working since March when I put up my first and only hub. A few weeks ago I worked hard to put up about 9 more over the course of a week or so. I've been revamping my blog since then and getting more quality content on there, and just got my AdSense working yesterday both on my blog and HP. I just went to look at my earnings, not expecting to see anything, but in fact, I DID! I DID see something. saw $0.07! big_smile

      Congrats! It's always nice when you start to see the change add up! It increases over time, and I heard that once you get the first payout, it accumulates a lot faster. That is encouraging.
      I checked out your articles. You have an interesting array! Keep it up, and you should do very well.

      Thanks for all the congrats and well wishes everyone.  One of the best things about this is I really enjoy doing it. It will take some time and hard work to accumulate anything substantial, but the other day when I finished creating a post for my site, complete with photos, I felt such joy in the accomplishment of creating it. I just smiled and thought, "How fun that I get to do this." big_smile They say to do what you love . . . so that's what I'm doing. Good thing hubby makes the real income so I can have fun making my 7¢ at a time. wink

        With this attitude you will probably do well. Maybe not earning tons of money-- most of us don't, but we still find  lots of other values here. The earnings are the frosting on the cake-- maybe not too substantial, but very sweet.
        Some people have gotten seriously in to the swing of things and devoted the time and hard work to make it as profitable as many full time jobs.
        Do what feels right for you, it's always good if your ae enyoying it.
        Welcome to HubPages.

    It was only a few months ago I made my first spare change and I couldn't have been more excited. I don't know when it will become "spendable" but until then, it still feels good.
