    My first interview as a writer was with our very own Ryan here from HubPages!! I'm so jazzed about this - Ryan asked me some questions about my second payout from Google and how it works, and what motivated me to keep writing. The interview is here at the HubPages blog: … nd-payout/

    So to all of you hubbers, especially the ones that are waiting for that payout, don't give up, it can and does happen!! It just takes time and stick-to-it-tiveness!!!

    What a fun interview, Dorsi! Thanks again for taking the time to answer the questions for me.

    There's some great information in your answers and it's something that every Hubber should take a look at. HubPages is not about making the quick buck -- if you stick with it there is some serious opportunity waiting for any writer to take advantage of.

      Your welcome Ryan. It WAS fun!! And this is a great way to motivate and help other hubbers realize that their writing will pay off but it takes time and hanging in there!

    That was some good and motivating information. It has been just more then 4months for me here and sometimes I do get impatient but then we have to keep writing and keep holding our patience.

    Lissie: Hey once I find out which get rich quick scheme works I'll be sure to let you know!)

    PackerPack: Hang in there, you will eventually reach payout. Just keep writing and coming to the forums! Glad the interview was helpful for you!

    Patty: Thank-you! It was fun doing the interview and hopefully gives hubbers some inspiration into the Google Adsense world, and how it takes time to build up your "reputation" and writers skills. Payout takes time but it IS possible!!! Whoo hoo!!!

    An even weirder thing has happened since hitting second payout. I've had the best week on Adsense since I joined. Could it be I've hit some type of higher threshold??? Hmmm.....
    (and BTW all of you who came by to comment...thanks!!!!)
