    Just a couple of minutes ago, I got my first Adsense check. I reached the pay out amount last December. It's not much in US dollars - $130 but if you translate it to local currency, that's equivalent to a one - month minimum salary / wage here! So I'm celebrating, and it's a wonderful post - Valentine gift for me big_smile.

      emie this is fantastic!  It is a terrific accomplishment.  And thanks for putting it in perspective.  It doesn't compare to US salaries, but I plan to celebrate it in some way that I will long remember.

      Thanks Pamela and Cagsil!

      DS, yup, it's really something to receive the first Google check smile. Thanks for the good luck.

      RMCrayne, it is fantastic! If I didn't need the money, I'll frame this, check and all big_smile. But maybe I'll just settle with getting a copy of it before actually depositing it smile.

      Thanks everyone. Check or no check, I'll gladly hub the whole day (and night) long LOL.

      @charanjeet, yep, first one is always special.

      @MOW, the check is just a bonus. Getting comments like yours - they're worth more than the check smile.

      @Mieka, no plans yet. Still looking at it and looking for a bank where I can deposit it LOL.

      @efeguy, uhm I don't backlink much, if that's what you are asking. I just have and a blogger account. That's all.
