Made my first $100

    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 day. My earnings were very slow at first but, I noticed that after about 9 months I developed a steady stream of earning a day. So I'm going to follow all the advice I've see on the forums and other hubpages. I'm gonna participate in the forums, be active in the hubpage community, and publish hubs that will attract attention.

      Way to go.  It's a great feeling.  It took me a little over a year to earn that first hundred.  It does come faster if you stick it out.  I received my second check and it only took three months this time.  I can't wait until I start receiving a check every month.  All in due time.  Keep it up.

      Way to go.  It's a great feeling to reach the minimum with Adsense.  All I can say is keep writing and don't give up.  Because most of us here want to change our financial standing for the better most of us understand it's a long process worth doing.  It takes years to reap the rewards but if you continue to write Hubs each and everyday I'm sure you will increase your earnings.  Write Hubs, blogs, websites, scoops, stories, posts and articles where ever you can.  It will benefit you.  I have hundreds of URLs floating throughout the web and it does eventually increase your revenue.  Keep it up.  Most of us have been there and done that.

      Send one over here. LOL

      I'm about 2/3 of the way towards my first pay-out. Many of my earlier hubs were about gardening (well they say to write about what you know) and they are not all that popular normally but I would say they are hitting a seasonal rush at the moment which is great, but it's taken me a long time to find out what people want to look at. I'm getting there - slowly but surely.

      Hey congrats luvint!

    Congra.  After you have a mass of content, article writing becomes a form of passive income.  Hope you can receive a monthly $100.

    Well done!

    My latest Google check arrived yesterday - for £120, which was nice.

    After yieldbuilding my other sites I am now a proud member of the check-every-month bunch, it's a good feeling.

    Now I need to get working on my Amazon and Clickbank strategies then I'll be banking checks every week.

    Congratulations. I joined this about 2 years ago and have only really made the effort since last August. I have spent some times learning about what I want to write about, what works and what doesnt etc..

    Now, am working on one hub per day roughly and want to learn about how to build traffic. There are some wonderful people who have been doing a traffic challenge and I have to look that up so I can make the effort to build traffic and keywords.

    People like Marissa and Earnest can be fantastic fonts of experience and knowledge and they always seem very happy to head me in the right direction. Which is lovely and I am grateful for their knowledge, their own efforts and professionalism. And their great guidance to others.

    Again congratulations. It should get easier now.

    Grats!  I personally just made over $1 today for the very first time.  So thrilled and inspired to keep going smile  I started over a year ago myself, but only published two hubs and then stopped for a year.  I only started back 2 or 3 months ago. 

    Like many other hubbers, I also plan to write a hub a day, but so far other things in life are making it hard to stick to that.  Guess I just need discipline!

    It seems true, though.  The more you keep writing, the more you'll make long term, so just keep going! smile

    Congratulations luvintkandtj. According a general estimation if you would have published at least 200 hubs in 2 years, you would have made at least 500 dollars or more. Then also don't worry, still you can do that. Best of luck for more and more hubs.

    Thanks Everyone! I am glad I started two years ago because It allowed me to see the it is possible to receive some form of income from hubs.but I didn't have time to really write great hubs and to devote some of my time two them. Now that I am spending some time hear in Japan,I have tons of time. I do not work so I can at least devote two hours of my day writing hubs and generating a flow of traffic. So that's my plan. Since I have some already established hubs, I plan to revamp them. AN I plan to attempt to keep a steady pace of quality hubs.

    Great Job,

    Been on Hubpages for about 6 months but I have blogs and websites with Adsense on them that have a lot of traffic and high value clicks.

    My Hub page articles have great traffic and good click through rate on my adsense. Like I say, write hubs everyday about topics people will want to read about. In the end even if your not making money on adsense ads you'll be getting a steady stream of traffic which will put your articles up in ranking on search engines.

    As always I wish You the best of luck and to all of my fellow hubbers.
