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!
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?
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
Yes, it takes so long that I end up not bothering to check the latest figures because it is so frustrating!
oh I have a 10.02 dollar LOL, I just checked it now...my sister told me she can give me the amount so that I dont spend time bothering to write and earn, well, I am just starting here in HP, and I will prove to them that I will earn, I started it already and I like to write and share too!
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.

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

Is it okay to deactivate my Google Adsense settings here on HubPages? Also, how can I payout my earnings from Google Adsense?

How long did it take before you started earning $50 to $100 a month on Hubpages?I try not to think all too much about the earning part on Hubpages since I'm still new here (4 months), but when you're earning literally NO money at all... It's still a bit discouraging.

I'm so close to a payout, finally - after almost 2 years. I realize I haven't had one sooner becuz I haven't done all of the things that earn us money here on HP. I started out not caring if I made money, I was writing for fun. But now that I'm so close I find myself checking in...

I have been getting an Adsense payment for years but it still makes me happy to receive one.

I joined HubPages 3 years ago but my last article was a little over an year ago, so imagine my surprise when I received mail from Paypal a few days ago about my first payment from HubPages!I really love this site and I want to continue writing, but I just can't seem to get the inspiration, and life...
