No, I haven't yet made my AdSense payout (though I'm getting there), but I've had a really good Amazon month, so between the two of them, I've finally reached triple digits in sales!
It's not enough to live on -- yet -- but for me, $100 is a big milestone, especially since I've earned more than half of it in the last month. It means that my hard work is paying off, people are reading my Hubs and most importantly, I'm beginning to believe that I can actually make it as a freelance writer. And $100 can go pretty far: it's the cost of a nice dinner for two, a one-night stay at a moderate hotel, a nice outfit or even a plane ticket, if you get a good deal. When I think of it in those terms, it makes me very happy!
So for those of you who are still fairly new like me, don't give up. It takes a LOT of work and patience, and learning about keywords and SEO, but it is possible to earn on here if you're willing to put in the time.
hooray! good job! i have been selling one item a day at amazon. so far nothing huge, but you never know, i might get lucky
Congratulations! A hundred bucks in 4 months sure is a notable achievement. ;-)
Good Job. I'm only at about $45 but for the last few months I havn't wrote any hubs or been online much because I didn't have internet access, although tonight I found a wireless connection. I hope it lasts.
Nice going , yer doin better than me at this point , keep it up , keep at it and one day that 100 will be 200 then 3 and 4 congrats and happy holidays
It is great to see your diligent effort pay off. I'm sure that this is the first of many great months for you. And I love your attitude about $100 - it can indeed buy lots of things.
More importantly now you really believe that it's possible to make money online. I think that that in itself is an important milestone. You'll work even harder because you know it will pay off.
Nelle you hit the bulls eye there! My .68 cents or hearing NaomiR got to $100 its really encouraging to know that the time spent here is really worth it! Naomi, thanks for sharing your success! Its awesome to hear you made that first financial mile stone and I hope you continue to earn more and build up your pages! You are almost certainly going to give hope to the newer members here that they can experience success too . I hope to join you in the winners circle soon! BTW what do you think was the key to your success? I always love to hear what works for people even if I have heard it before, keeps me motivated
Well done, $100 in your first 4 months is good going . Plus its mostly come in the last month, so you're accelerating
Congratulations, Naomi! May you have many more $100 bills in your life!
Congratulations! You deserve it because your hubs are quite interesting. You inspire new hubbers to work hard too.
More power to you!
Congratulations! Getting that first payout kinda makes you want to go on. It revives your interest in hubbing, eh?
Thanks! Yeah, the money does inspire me to do more. But it's really about knowing that I've gotten so many people to read my work, too.
Congratulations. You're right - a lot of people just starting out wonder if anyone can ever really earn more than pennies. It's good that people post and let them know they can.
I think the key to my success is experimenting with SEO and keywords ... but what's really worked for me is writing detailed and (I hope) interesting pieces about things I know. I've had surprising successes on Hubs that would seem to be non-commercial, but managed to somehow draw an audience. And then I've had little success on Hubs that use high-paying keywords and topics. So it's been about finding what works for me.
Congrats, I was looking for hubs on how amazon works and glad you were successful. It is refreshing to hear a success.
Congrats, it its take time to see tangible result and more importantly determination and hard work will eventually pay
Way to Go NamoiR! Congrats on great job! You do some good work!
AWESOME news. Congrats on that milestone. I enjoy reading your work - you are indeed a talented writer. Good on you!
It's great to hear about people actually making money online and an inspiration to the rest of us.
Congratulations! I am no where near that myself but it's encouraging to read success stories like yours.
Congratulations. It is certainly a good feeling to hit that triple digit milestone. Here's to four digits.
thanks for the inspiration Naomi, 4 months and earning a decent amount, i should have around the same amount of hubs as you by the time I get to 4months
Congrats, You'll be adding a zero to that 100 before you know it,
Thanks! I'm looking forward to those quadruple digits, believe me!
I'm in college right now and practicing writing is great for me! I will try to write about something I like (games) and if I ever made few bucks out of it, I will be happy!

I just checked yesterday's ebay numbers and found that I had my first $100 day. October 2009 was my first serious attempt at making ebay money and I was thrilled to make about $90 off of my 30 hubs that month. Prior to that from April to September I made about $10 each month.So you can grow revenue...

After almost two years I've made my first 100. I'm excited because for about a year i didn't publish any hubs. Then again I think about how much more I would have had if I would have kept a steady pace of hub publishing. I've decided to try to pick it back up. I hope to at least publish one hub a...

Despite the ups and downs of Google, last month I managed to reach US $100, my highest earnings so far. How are you faring? I just want to encourage the new hubbers and tell them HP pays and it is for real.

I have just received my first HP payout on PayPal late last month (USD$60-something)! It was a long journey since I was not very active and I wrote on and off (I only have 31/32 hubs at the moment). To all the hubbers who are wondering what I am earning monthly now, I average around USD20/mo, which...

It may seem silly, and I know it won't stay at 100, but I am so happy that I finally hit it. Whoo Hoo.
