    Hi everyone,

    Just thought I'd share the good news. Yes, it's official, I've earned $1. Whoo-hoo!! I know it's not a million and it took 2800 hits to get, but what the heck, I'm thrilled! Jeez, it takes 5 months for my officiaI website to bring that kind of traffic. I had heard good things about hubpages and wasn't so sure about it, but once you really get involved, it's awesome.

    It's not about the money anyways, I like the challenge of creating content based on what I like and improving on it. The community is also one of the best I've seen, very supportive. I am a total addict now and it's only been 5 weeks.

    Anyways, just wanted to be gitty with someone!!! (my kids think I'm nuts, but I know you guys appreciate the effort that goes into hubpages)

    It's amazing how happy we get.  I was so excite over my first .63 cents until I told my daughter and saw her face.  I was still happy, I just kept it on the inside now.

    Congratulations. Hopefully I'll make my first dollar soon too. Anyone any idea what kind of money it is possible to make from a hub in say a year?

    wishing you further success,

    Wow, that is great. It is also inspiring for me to hear.

    Kenny is right, don't tell your kids tell us! When I tell my kids what I'm trying to do, I get that "glazed over eyes" response that tells me I"ve lost them anyway.

    This is a great community and I hope to join you with some success as I get further along too!

    I told my husband I made .70 today and he looked at me like I was crazy!  Why do you spend so much time Hubbing, was the look in his eyes?  I wanted to say that .70 in a single day was incredible - at least for me - so let's go celebrate!!  Oh well, its about the fun, and not much more.  Its a great outlet, and as long as I keep it in perspective, I'm doing great!
