    I was so happy to check my traffic this morning, and noticed that I had earned over $1 for the first time. I felt like it was coming since I have earned .97 cents last week. I've never been this excited about earning a buck in my life lol.

      That's awesome, dude! Hopefully I can throw enough effort out there I can see the ole buck-a-day, too! I liked your Mortal Kombat article. Well, more blown away than anything!

      That's great, congrats! A week ago was my first "over $1" and it was almost $2, so I was thrilled. LOL 
      A couple days ago I made over $1 in a day again. So I'm happy. smile

        More than nine "over-$1-a-day" this month. I'm happy views are going up. smile

      Well done! Your first dollar is a big milestone on HubPages, and you should be very proud. smile

      How do you actually do this? It would be greatly appreciated if you could probably give some insights so that other Hubbers can experience this, too. smile I, for one, have not been able to reach a single buck even after 5 years here on Hubpages. Any tips, guys? smile

    Good for you!  I am lucky to earn $1 in one month.

      prospectboyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Thank you LindaSmith1. Just keep working at it, and your earnings will definitely rise. I don't consider myself a talented writer, so if I can earn a buck in a single day, anyone can do it smile

    Congrats, prospectboy, good job! I felt the same two weeks ago when I hit my first dollar for a day's work. It is exciting and it will keep happening again from now on. I guess we've crossed over the first earning hump here at HP. smile

      prospectboyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Thank you so much Ms. Janis! I had grown accustomed to the usual .50 cents to .70 cents daily, so it was pleasant surprise when I started nearing the dollar mark. Congrats to you on reaching it as well. It's very exciting indeed, and helps to keep me motivated. We're definitely crossed that first hump lol. smile

        I'm also close to that mark; however, right now it moves asymptotically towards $1. Hopefully, I'll get to break that  soon. Oh, by the way, congrats on your success!

    Well done - your earnings are now on a par with trash heap scavengers in India! Next target - earn as much as a crippled beggar in war-ravaged Somalia.

    PS Please forgive me horrible sarcasm, I can't help myself sometimes - its an important milestone and a great affirmation that people appreciate your writing- and its probably 5 times more than I am making from Hubpages.

      LOL we should set up a full ranking system of earnings!

    With 135 hubs ???

    1. Jason Marovich profile image88
      Jason Marovichposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Assuming he fiddled around on his HP account enough to stay relevant with Google, he could never write another hub and over five years he'd earn $1825.  That puts the value of each of his hubs well over $100 for a five-year span.  That's a better way of looking at it smile

      1. prospectboy profile image89
        prospectboyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        I like that way of looking at it lol. Besides, it's not all about money for me on here. I'd say that at least 80 of the hubs I've written are outdated, and I haven't changed or updated them, mainly because I have a lot going on outside of Hubpages. The site is primarily a hobby for me. I enjoy the people and community more than anything.

      How much is a person with 135 hubs supposed to be earning?

      1. lobobrandon profile image91
        lobobrandonposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        Woah that's a lot of hubs to be making just that much. Probably you could optimize your current hubs a bit before writing more?

    christmastoys2013posted 4 years ago

    There is no better feeling than earning money on the Internet in this way. Pick another milestone, not just in terms of a financial-goal but also how many hubs you want to write in the next few weeks. And keep at it.

    1. prospectboy profile image89
      prospectboyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks! That reply was to the person who seemed to downplay my earnings based on the number of hubs I've written. Earnings are the least of my worries on here. The experience I've gained and the connections I have made on here have been invaluable.

      1. quantumthots profile image75
        quantumthotsposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        I was not trying to downplay your earnings but the fact is you have a lot of hubs and its hard to imagine you've only made 1 $ but since money is not your objective then it's okay .

        1. prospectboy profile image89
          prospectboyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

          I gotcha. I'm okay with my standing on here. I've received multiple payouts, and I'm receiving the largest one I've ever made on here at the end of this month.

            Excellent. Good to hear that. I got my first payout just last month. Now I have become a very active writer in hubpage I would say.
            You are simply inspiring me to move forward with my recipes.
            When you find time, please pitch into my hubpage as well to see my recipes that I have posted (if you are interested) !

            am confused you say you made your first dollar and then you say you have received multiple payouts ???

            1. prospectboy profile image89
              prospectboyposted 4 years agoin reply to this

              I said I made over my first dollar in a single day, not my first dollar earned ever. Yes, I've received multiple payouts as well.

    Was your earnings from your ad or from your immediate hubs? Thanks
