What was your first feeling when you received your first pay out?
It is a great feeling, you feel vindicated for your hard work in getting there. Once you get there of course, you then want to get to the next one quicker. The first payout is a great goal to strive for if you haven't made it already.
I got my first payout after 4 months of publishing my first hub and I cannot express the feeling when I saw $85 in my PayPal account from hub pages. It was my first ever online earning.
Though, I am getting $100+ continuously every month after my first payout.
The first time I got paid I immediately transferred the money to my account and checked like three times to make sure it was real. even today, the money doesn't feel real.. "Mailbox Money" as they say.
But honestly, the money is a nice bonus, but I truly get more satisfaction just watching the daily count, and knowing that somebody actually read my hubs! People are really, really bored hahaha! Seriously though, I still smile every time I remember that, even if I've taken some time off, people are still reading my hubs.
To me it is such a great reward to earn from HP after all the hard work and the pay just makes it feel so right.
I just received mine after almost 2 years here! It felt great. Does anyone know if we continue to get paid every month regardless of what we earn? Or does the $50 minimum still apply?
I think, the persons who earn on HP, are most lucky. At least for me, it is not more than a fairy tale because I have 199 hubs and out of these, more than 85 percent hubs are featured but the earning is just $0.59. I have tried my best but could not earn even in average. I have left all these behind me and enjoying in writing more and more hubs. Now, it is my eagerness every day, to see how many hubs are featured and how many people read my hubs. Thanks for those persons, who are still reading my hubs. But apart from this, I pray to the almighty for your success and earning. Keep your good writing. With best wishes.
Satisfaction that all of my hard work getting started at HubPages paid off. It made me feel like writing more Hubs.
My first payout took several months so it was kind of a feeling of relief, like finally but then I've made payout consistently since then and it's always a good feeling. It's nice to get a little something every month from my hubs.
I'm waiting on my first payment. Should have it this month, but when I saw that I hit it, I became extremely excited and addicted to Hubpages. I don't think there is one day that goes by that I'm not on here checking, changing and working on something. It's a really cool way to make a passive income! I'm learning so much!
I have no idea, for here. I write for a living in real world scenarios. I get paid to produce things like Press Releases and Legal Briefs and technical letters in Face to Face business dealings.
The pay is the validation.
I think that when we get paid that is really good for us as writers. Some maybe want to make a living at it here. -- Do not give up your day job.
But for those here using this as a part of a diversified writing portfolio who get a pay out. Hoorah baby!!! Hoorah!
I call it the "write/right on" and pump my hand in the air. And probably do a jig. Being paid to write is such an honor. Can you even imagine how others wish they could do what you do??? It is a gift and brings such more richness to life.
Honey child when you get your pay out. Skip a beat, celebrate, share it and be so happy for your gift.
So I answer this with a demand and command. Cherish success in writing. See it as your victory over poverty of ignorance, a gift to all others and an achievement worth celebrating and feeling really damn good about.
I'm taking my husband out for dinner for supporting me for three years while I wrote two books and more than 100 hubs.
Yay! This actually works! It also motivated me to keep writing and building on my success. Unfortunately, the major update that hit last year cut my earnings in half and I have never been able to regain my enthusiasm.
