    Only 6 months and 21 days to the first pay out. Needless to say I wish the second to be in weeks not months, but it is a good milestone.

    Way to go Dobson!  You encourage me - I'm still waiting, but hoping for this month.

    They say the second comes much faster; I hope you find that as well.

    The Thing about all of it is I chose to do some creative writing serials 40 hubs total that do not generate AdSense and others that do not generate any moeny so i would estimate only 65 AdSense gnenerating hubs in my collection.

      But that's the great thing Dobson, your fiction is what draws people in to look at your other work and vice versa.  Either way you'll get clicks.  I think it's great that you have a nice variety.

    well done - it took me about the same, then I made payout again the following month, so hopefully you will be able to do the same.

        I only did it once as a total fluke. Usually about 1/3 of that, but I live in hope every time I log on.
