So, I've had a lot going on in my life lately and haven't spent as much time here as usual. When I checked my earnings from November on Adsense, I was stunned. Not only did I reach a personal overal best of over $1000, but my HubPages portion composed over $900 of that. I'm extatic!
I'm not sure if that had anything to do with participating in the NovHubChallenge or not, but it is sweet either way... Even though I didn't complete the challenge due to school and personal issues; I got pretty close.
congrats, merry xmas to you! I know it is hard work for you, Maita
Congrats! You have 666 hubs! No wonder! Again, congrats.
Your hard work had paid you ultimately. Go ahead.
Good work, you should make a hub about that topic too, it will give you a good traffic also.
Very well done Whitney, for whatever reason. $1000 in adsense earnings is a great achievement. With 666 hubs, I doubt 30 Hub Challenge hubs made a lot of difference. But wow, $1000 just from adsense, very fantastic. And you're "just a kid", still in college. You work very hard between your school, research, and hundreds of hubs. One of the best work ethics I've seen in a long time anywhere.
Thanks.. I'm not sure if my 25ish hubs from NovHubChallenge had anything to do with it, but I wouldn't discount it. I'm usually around $800+ a month in HubPage Adsense alone, but to not have logged in my Adsense account since Nov 17th, to find I earned over 1K was nice.
I haven't checked Amazon or Ebay yet, but I assume it's probably average.
Oh, and I'm definitely a busy person. Ha... Trying my best to do what I can now to help in the future. I want nice things in life, and I know what I have to do to get them... Work... Although, a stay at home wife and mom would be lovely; I just don't see that happening for me right now.
Congratulations! Santa delivered early to you :-) Happy Holidays!
Holy mackerel! I'm amazed at the $1000 dollars in a month, and the over 600 hubs. Prolific Whitney05!!!
Amazing achievement Whitney! Congratulations and what a great Christmas bonus for you!
Super job, Whitney! Congrats! $1000 !!! That's such a nice surprise to find, isn't it?
It really is a great surprise... Trying to save up to get a crossover SUV or something bigger than a mustang, so the more I can earn, means the bigger down payment I can put forth.
At that rate, it won't be long and you can just pay cash for it. I'm really pleased for you.
This is more for the other newbies reading this than it is for someone who has more than double my hubs....lol, but I totally saw a difference in my earnings once I started doing the HubChallenges. They are a fantastic practice excercise that helps you improve your brainstorming ability when thinking up new topics to write about, your ability to research keywords, your ease in writing skills and finding your voice, and it helps you find out what the viewing public responds best to.
I bet every one of us has a hub that we published that we had no idea it would take off like it did. Then I bet we all have one that we thought would skyrocket and has only managed to get a couple dozen views from a few loyal fans. The more hubs you do the more you start to figure a few things out based on your own style.
Again, congrats Whitney...we all aspire to be like you.
Congrats to you whitney,it will help pay for that education.
A really motivational post for the most of us.
that's awesome Whitney!!
i hope to become better at traffic...;
That's great news, Whitney; Congratulations! You'll encourage other writers to keep on contributing too. I do think the 30 Day Challenge and the HubMob help me quite a bit.
Anyway, it's a nice Christmas present to yourself.
Congratulations, Whitney - you certainly deserve it for all your hard work! Sure feels good though, I'll bet. Well done, girl!
This is so nice to see. A deserving person who has worked well being recognized! Well done Whitney, you really do deserve it! Your hubs are top quality all the way!
Congratulations. It is a well deserved reward for all of your hard work. Keep it up.
Fantastic accomplishment Whitney. I wondered what happend to you at the end of the challenge, I was certain you would finish when I did, we seemed to be on the same pace. Anyway, Merry Christmas and happy SUV hunting.
livewithrichard, I got busy in so many other areas of my live. Plus a little relationship glitch that severely stressed me out on top of it all... I just wasn't able to finish that one. Got close though. I was sure I was going to be able to do it, but it's hard to work with excess stress on your back. I've finally been able to log in and start working. I hate to say it, but I wasn't even answering comments; deleted most bc I had over 100 at one point, and didn't have the strength or nerve to read them all. Skimmed them though, and answered some, left some, but deleted most. :-/
Well I'm sure that whatever is stressing you, you'll work it out soon. I see how hard you work here and I can remember this time of year in college with finals and goodbye's to friends, but the bright side is, there is only a few weeks to the new year and fresh starts. Take a break until you get your head on right, we'll keep the light on here
Wow Whitney, that is amazing! I rock along with my odd few cents! lol
Thats great, nice job!! What great timing around the holidays too.
Well done Whitney, with your busy life, you have to be congratulated for this feat. CONGRATULATIONS. You will certtainly hit 5 figures before you know it. GOOD LUCK
Wow, now that's some good news right before Christmas, and an incentive to those of us that aspire to generate income via our writing.
Congratulations Whitney, it's good to hear from you!
Congratulations on that very rewarding milestone (yay--1,000 bucks!) and as you suggest in your quote above, I am sure your participation in the 30 hub challenge is what helped you reach that hefty figure.
I have noticed that when I put up a lot of content on hubpages in a relatively short amount of time, traffic and income increase. It makes sense, too, when you think about it.
What a thrill! You have inspired hope, never to give up. Just what I needed to keep going! x
You've proved that hard work and perserverance pays off. Congratulations!
Wow congrats! That will teach us newbies to stick around!
You have so many hubs! That is almost 1 per day. Where do you get all the inspiration?
Good luck on keeping up the earnings!
Hopefully, one day I'll be able to make that much from Adsense.
I am happy for you Whitney, it validates your good work, well done indeed!
Good for you! I can only hope to make that much money. I take it you made that money off from all of your hubs combined?
Do you belong to other affiliates as well? making money on those? If so, how are you doing in those areas? I'm hoping well.
I have had various short stories out there that I was giving away for free. Total at one site over 3,000 fans, and over 10,000 at another website. Those were both at geocities which sadly no longer exists.
I can only imagine the money I could have made, if I could have brought all of those fans to hub pages.
But, knowing all those people were enjoying my work, was very inspiring. Too bad that Yahoo took away something that so many
Great Job Whitney! The quality of your work speaks for itself this way! Hoooah!
Congrats Whitney! You're giving me hope and the motivation to write more .

One of my hubscores just broke 90 for the first time. Its been skirting it at 89 for quite sometime, and just popped up to 91. Just wanted to share... thanks for listening!

I have to share my small success story with everyone. It’s not huge compared to what other hubbers make here, but hey I have reached my second payout in just 4 months this time. It is less than 1/3rd of the time it took for my first cheque. Can’t wait to make one each month. My personal advice is...

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...
