I Have Reached My First Google Adsense Pay Out!

    Jen's Solitudeposted 8 years ago

    I can't believe how long it took me to get that last .12 cents I needed, but this morning it finally happened and I am now a little over $100.00.

    I have been here almost 9 months and was hoping to reach the pay out threshold in 10 months, so I guess I am a month ahead of schedule.

    I look forward to reaching the next pay out a little sooner than 9 months and of course am looking forward to actually seeing the money in my checking account in a month or so.

      Congrats Jen! That's about as long as it took me to make my first adsense paycheck, but boy was it a sweet thing.

      Hope your 2nd one comes soon!

    That is fabulous!  I really need to work on my subject material lol.  I don't think I've made a penny yet....

    You deserve it for the informative articles that you put out to help people who are new or recently diagnosed victims of Multiple Sclerosis, as well as those who have been dealing with it for a long time.  When someone is scared and trying to find information, they come across your articles and see that life goes on, in spite of the diagnosis.  Your beauty and humor shine through each article that you write, giving hope and faith to everyone who reads them.  What an amazing gift to the world!

    Helen Carter, hmmm, good question. To tell you the truth I was just going to look at it in my bank balance and enjoy the view! Much hard work went into that first hundred. (smile)

    The greatest thing is that the next payout should happen faster as the content is there now and if you keep building and building it should be like a snowball effect or something! anyway way to go you!

    Online4income and eyeofh, thank you both very much for the comments.

    kristenblog, I will definitely look for that snowball effect.

    cosette, I look forward to congratulating you in the near future.

    AEvans, it does feel good, but even better with your assurance of the quickening pace and arrival. Thank you as well.

    CMhypno, Sara Tonym (is your username a play on words, if so GOOD one! lol) Ladybird33, much thanks for the congrats. Alas, the money will not be spent, I think I will just enjoy the fact that it is in my bank account when it finally gets there, while I work hard to see how quickly I can get another pay out.

    Congrats Jen... and here is another bit of good news. No matter how many times those payouts come they always feel soooooo sweet. If you can buy yourself something special, that way it will become a reminder and an incentive to keep writing more and more.

    Zsuzsy Bee, nice to know it is not just the first pay out that will feel sweet. Thanks for that!

    Thank you as well, SirDent!

    retellect, I thought needing .50 cents was no biggie, but it took so long I had to laugh, especially that last .12 cents. Then I received 4 clicks in one day that took me over what I needed. A case of feast or famine, I suppose.

    Great work Jen, I will never forget my first payout.  It was way before I was involved with Hubpages but sweet never the less.  Keep working hard and you will get to a point where you receive pay from Google every month.

    Keep up the great work

    Thank you Thranax, alekhouse and shil1978. Yes it is cool! ;-)

    Jeff Brendan, if memory serves there are posts about earnings, if you feel up to doing a search.

    Hi Dale! That is my goal, a pay out every month. Thanks for the post and the encouragement.

    Thank you Dao Hoa

    mustangluvr, I also appreciated hubbers who posted info that let me know what to expect with my earning potential. I kept 10 months as my goal, and am glad to have reached it a month early.
