    Can't wait til the month's up, and I know I shouldn't start celebrating until the checks are in the post, but that won't be for weeks, and I am far too excited. 90% on Amazon, 10% from Google, but together they have tipped me over $1000 for the month.

    Grinning like a Cheshire cat.

    Hoping this will serve as inspiration to others as I worked many many hours for no money without knowing whether that work would pay off.

    wait is this a $100 month or $1000 month, your post and post tittle say different things, either way, congratulations!

      Thanks for pointing that out Oli - speed typing with small children hanging round the house = lots of mistakes smile

      I meant $1000 - I've corrected it now.

      Lol - I have no idea if I signed up under a referal or not. I joined after reading a Hub blog article about Girly-Girl and thought I could probably make a go of it- glad I did now. Hopefully there will be more months like this to come.

    Wow, that is brilliant after just 7 months. Actually it would be brilliant after any amount of time to earn that just from hubpages. I'm very impressed.

      Really hoping that will happen in December - but that would be a one-off because of Christmas - I don't think I could get that much all year round.

    It's my first $1000+ month too.  It's mostly AdSense, but both my Amazon and eBay are way up.

      IzzyMposted 13 years agoin reply to this

      Well done you, Relache! Sound like you have already cracked Adsense..so if you can now crack Amazon/Ebay you'll be well sorted!
      Congrats to you too smile

    Wow!  I'm impressed!  I had never made a penny with Amazon and haven't been adding those capsules in a long time and even went back and eliminated them from old hubs.  Perhaps I had better start adding some? 

    This October will be my first $100 month with Google Adsense and I thought that was good.  I really need to learn more!  Can't wait for Hubcamp coming to Houston next March.

    Wow, $1,000 in a month and most of it coming from Amazon. That's pretty incredible. I've been a member two months longer than you, but your stats put me to shame (and inspire me to keep writing!).

    Awesomely happy with the news you have broken another milestone. If someone or even myself had told you 7 months ago, your experience here would be enough to greatly affect your life and that of your family in a positive way, you may have well laughed at us.

    Really happy you have reached a point where it is all strawberries and cream from here on in.

    Congrats to you as well, looking to the day when your Amazon and eBay gets up and close to your adSense.

    Well done ladies, may fortune continue to help you prosper big_smile
