    What will you do (or have you done) with your first 100 dollars you earned from Adsense?

      That was a while back, in 2005.

      But what have I been doing with my current earnings?

      I bought a new Dell Mini a couple of weeks ago. So I can do more writing when I'm out of the home office or wanting to be in a different room of the house.

          They certainly are.

          I have a Dell notebook as my main computer but with all the extra HDDs, printer, extra monitor and stuff stuck into it it's too much of a pain (because all my icons move back on the main screen) to move it anywhere else.

          And sitting back on a recliner with a Mini is so much more easy, convenient and fun.

    I paid some bills I think smile I blew the next $100 on things like donating to Kiva and buying a couple of t-shirts.

    I just bought a new laptop two months back.
    I don't think I'll be seeing my first 100 for at least ten months more! So I'll think about it then.

    I will be using my earnings to purchase gold and silver which retain their purchasing power over longer periods of time.  I have written several hubs on this.  So far, I have earned about 60% of an ounce of silver. LOL.

      Ms Chievousposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      So maybe buy stock in gold or silver!  Hmmmm

    This is my job, so I spend my adsense earnings and other affiliate income, just the way people spend and save their paychecks.

    I definitely agree with the idea of saving or investing it.

    I pay my rent with earnings from my hubs, so I'm free to spend my "real" income on other things...

      I suspect you are sleeping rough outside the HubPages Office!  Seriously that sounds impressive!

      PS: Maddie you are very welcome to join the Hubbers Cruise - we haven't had a staff visitor yet (I apologise in advance for some of the wild goings on around the Pool!)

    I am pretty sure I spent my first $100 on bills! I will spend my next $100 on bills for sure! I am using HubPages to hopefully pay off all my debt. It's going good so far! I should create a hub showing my progress!
