    My one year HubPages anniversary was a few days ago and today I broke $100 in AdSense revenue - the first time I've gotten to $100 within the month!  lol

    Many of you may have read this before, but if you're new and want some reassurance that you really can make money here ... I got my first payout here after 3 months, the next hundred took two months, and I've been getting a payout every other month since then.  The last couple of months I got real close - just a couple of dollars below $100 for the month.  This month I'm at $100 in only 26 days!!  I only hope that it keeps up and I get a payout every month from now on...and that it keeps growing, and growing...

      great job. Not many people reach $100 in a month. Infact only 25% of people using adsense who receive a check every month. I am still waiting for my first one.

        Thank you.  I wasn't aware of that statistic and find it hard to believe because there are a large handful of people here at HP that make well over $100 a month from AdSense and that's only here at HP...

      Hey, go girl.  It took me six months to make that much and will be even longer for the next $100.00.

    With what you have described seems to me you will be getting regular pay outs and will not have to be concerned about it. Your post is very encouraging to all of us who also want to reach monthly pay outs. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your success with us.

    O that is great Lily. Congratulations first for your anniversary at Hubpages and secondly for getting to $100 in one month. I believe you should reach $100 every month now on and get better from here.

    Congratulations.  I do think it's nice to let new Hubbers know that writing can pay off here.  A lot of newer people can be pretty doubtful in the beginning.   smile

    Fantastic Lily Rose.  I am right behind you.  I think July will be my first 'almost $100 month'.

    Oh my ... I posted this and had not had a chance to get back online since - thank you all for your encouraging comments! 

    Right now I'm torn between my addiction to hubbing - especially with the holiday season coming up! - and taking some time off to concentrate on ME because sitting on my butt at the computer for a good portion of the day is doing nothing to help my waistline!!  I must find a happy medium...

    Congrats Lily on your anniversary and revenue from Google Adsense.. You and others are an inspiration to me and I am now starting to accumulate revenue myself.. Almost every other day with Adsense and I made my first Amazon sale today from one of my hubs. I just wanted to see could I start making sales from Amazon and with a bit of work I did. Hubpages is surely the best website I tell ya!!! smile smile

      Hi Liljen!  You're certainly right - HP is a great place, I'm so happy that I stumbled upon it quite by accident one year ago!

      Congrats on your first Amazon sale - it's all uphill from here!

    Congrats Lily Rose,

    You are an inspiration to those of us who are trying to make money here on Hubpages. I truly appreciate you sharing your success. It really inspires me to keep going.

    May $100 a month become normal for you and $100 days to follow soon after.

      Lily Roseposted 13 years agoin reply to this

      Thank you, and definitely keep going!

      $100 a day - probably nothing but a dream, but can't hurt to dream it!
