    Know just what you mean. I've had months where I've needed say 81 cents to make payout on the last day. And I haven't made it until 11 pm that night. Luckily I'm ahead of that pace now and make payout pretty early in the month.

    Yep, I feel you man.  I'm a definite lover of consistency, and adsense revenue is anything but consistent, especially when you just need that extra little push.

    It was flying all month, then stopped dead for two days with less than a dollar left.  Finally got over it, but it was just funny.

    I remember those days.  Hell I remember openly cheering for the amount to go over 100.

    Luckily now like Nelle I am past that and 100 isnt a problem these days but trust me it took a lot of work to get it to that point.

    keep up the great work

    Agreed, the first one took forever, 10 months.  Now it has gotten much better.

    Then again, so has my writing, keywords and overall approach.  The two go hand in hand.

    Yes especailly if you continue to watch your adsense. I have to make myself busy so I won't obsess about it!  Happy though.. Got my adsense payout direct deposited this morning! yea some shopping money!

      Hey congrats Ms Chievous. $100 Adsense = 100 score big_smile.

      I'm less than $20 from reaching the first payout and it's keeping me busy wondering if I will reach it by end of this year. Promised myself that I would but heck, anything can happen.

    yeah Bg, thats the anxiety. its gonna come through. I remember when I needed that adsense money and just 3 dollars to payout was like 3 years for me. I had to calm down and leave it to flow naturally. Well, nice one Nelle Hoxie. you gotta mentor me. I need your mentorship. Can I apply? lol

    I have quite a bit sat in my Adsense account. Because I messed up with some details and Google quite rightly wouldn't release anything until I delivered what they had to nag me for.

    I will have a nice Christmas on it.

    And I suppose a watched pot never boils. Stop staring at your account. I once made almost $50 in one day.. True story.

    Therefore you never know smile

      50 dollars in one day?  Amazing!  Maybe this weekend will give us a chance at that!

    Yes, it takes so long that I end up not bothering to check the latest figures because it is so frustrating!

      I'm in a very similar boat as you. However, I find writing hubs not just as a potential income avenue, but also pretty entertaining. I always think when I am writing "would I be doing something productive if I wasn't making a hub?" The answer is almost always no.
