    My first Hub was written Nov of 07 and it has always been my most popular. I wasn't expecting it, but a check arrived the other day for 107.93. Wahoo! My husband thought it was pretty neat too when i told him it was basically residual income as long as HubPages and Google Adsense are around. He almost ripped it up before I could explain it was real. Whew!

    I am spurred on to create more when I can find the time. I only have 36. But i IS happy!!!!!

    Et al...

      Glad you convinced your husband in time!

      At least in our home I don't have to worry about that.  My honey wouldn't even toss a losing scratch lottery ticket without having me double check it.

      Anyway, congrats for sure! big_smile

    Congratulations! smile I still have about $12.00 to go before I get an adsense check , it will be my very first check from Hubpages. I also notice an old hub I wrote on numerology is the one that gets me the most adsense.

    That would have been bad, if he would have torn it... Our dog once did that, wasn't very happy smile (wasn't an adsense check, it was only for like 30 dollars or something)

    But congrats!
