    Well, it took me nearly two months (one week of which I was disconnected from the internet) but I've finally made $1.06!  Woohoo!  I'm throwing a party!  To the dollar store! wink

      You'd need about 3 more cents to cover the tax in my state.

      What is the amount you have to reach before payout? Im sorry, Ive forgotten.

    Congrats! I'm a hubber for about a month now, and I activated the ad program three days ago. So far I earned 2,17 $ which is in my opinion solid amount for the ''rookie''. Big thanks for the good start go to hubber SimeyC who gave me some directions and very useful tips. smile

    Good job, Jordan! It's just like when brick-and-mortar businesses frame their first dollar bill and place it on the wall. Remembering that first dollar made reminds you how far you've come!
