    Thanks everyone, these past weeks I've been teetering precariously on the edge of giving up, but waking up this morning to my first sale is like getting my second wind, it's a sweet feeling.

      Good Morning Michael......And the moral of this story is?...........No giving up allowed.
      Please don't keep your talent from us.  (BTW, that's the first line to a C&W song I'm working on)  LOL

    I want to say "perseverance", but it's only been 10 weeks, so that statement would be demonstrably fallacious.  I try to learn a new aspect everyday, each day I learn a little more about using proper keywords, SEO, investing a little more time in my writing, etc.

    That is a great feeling.  No apologies necessary for being Happy!  I recall jumping for joy when I made my first 36 cents!!  It's like giddy parents over baby's first tooth! 
    Yeah, teeth HAPPEN, Mom & Dad!!   LOL

    That's awesome Michael! I was feeling a unsure till until this morning myself. I look at my Amazon and I made 4 sales. I was like Wow. This gives me a bit of hope since I'm not on the Adsense just my own Affiliate. Good luck and hope the sales keep coming in!

    Nice job. I have gotten a few but that's it. I need to go back and re-evaluate my ads. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Thanks everybody!  It reminds me of the Infinite monkey theorem, if you had a monkey sitting at a typewriter hitting random keys with an infinitie amount of time, it will eventually produce Shakespeare.  Well, I'm that monkey, ta-da!
