    I got a real live honest to gosh payment from Google AdSense this past weekend -- my first  one ever, and I've been here since 2011.  Wonder of wonders.

    The HP Ad Program has been my main earnin' jam for the past few years so I honestly had stopped paying attention to my AdSense totals altogether -- because, as I've been so fond of saying, "glaciers move faster." So this was a pleasant surprise from a gracious nowhere.

    Better late than never, eh? Hopefully it'll take less than seven and a half years to make the next one, haha!

      Global warming. It causes glaciers to melt faster.

      Congrats! I also received my first within the past month.

      A tip for anyone making an AdSense account: make sure your full name (especially your middle) appears exactly as it is on your social security card. Makes verification much easier when you finally hit payout. AdSense doesn't have a great support team (there's really only forums to consult, not an email to contact), so navigating any issues can be tricky.

    Amazing!  Congrats!  My own glacier is still far, far away from reaching payout - at one to two cents a day with maybe a day or two a month maybe as high as $.50 if I manage my first check in only 7 years it will be a miracle.  Don't spend it all in one place!

      It used to be that way for me for a long time, but now I'm getting about 6 payouts yearly because I have a lot of articles  for a topic that advertisers want to compete to put their ads on.

    Great news, the glacier has moved. Payouts from Google take longer because their minimum is 100.

    That's wonderful! Congratulations!

    I'm still putting ideas together for articles and working up my nerve...at this rate, I'll be retired before I ever get anything going. smile
