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.
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. I, for one, have not been able to reach a single buck even after 5 years here on Hubpages. Any tips, guys?
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.
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.
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.
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
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 I'd say that at least 80 of the hubs I've written are outdated, and I haven't changed or updated them, mainly because I have a lot going on outside of Hubpages.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.
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.
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.
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) !
