    Yeay! I made it. Today is my one year anniversary on HubPages. All I can say is it's been real, nothing I could have imagined, coming in here totally green. I have learned sooooo much and thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience despite the ups and downs. Very stressful at times but worth all that I've gained. Thanks to all who helped me along the way. Let's celebrate and keep on hubbin' smile

      Its a great thing, but how much did you earn on the way ?

      1. janshares profile image95
        jansharesposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        Not very much but I'm hopeful that will change in the coming months. I've only reached payout once. Panda derailed my momentum in a big way.

          Google shouldn't call its crawler "Panda"; it should be named something mean like Warthog or Alligator.
