    Hey, guess what?  I actually made money!  After 11 months I noticed yesterday I actually made 44 cents.  So it ain't alot.  Who cares.  I ain't doin' this to get rich anyway.  I'm just tickled someone or a number of someones actually click on something or other.  Who cares!  44 cents.  I love this stuff.

      That's great, a whole 44 cents. I'm with you,  I write because I love it. I never even signed up for Ad Sense. Am I missing something?

        Not in my book.  Oh, I'm sure you could make extra bucks but the writing's the thing for me.  I signed up for adsense originally but they kicked me out the first week and I've yet to find out why.  Don't really care to tell ya the truth.  Hey, that's 44 cents I didn't have yesterday.

        I didn't sign up for a while either!  But what have you got to lose?  You may be throwing away a few hundred a month, you never know!

          True, true but.....I doubt they're gonna let me back in unless I figure out why I was cast out in the first place.  I've asked.  I wasn't answered.

        My thinking is if the ads. are going to be on the page you might as well get paid for them. Even if it adds up slowly at first with time it gains momentum; yes go for it.

      I'd take it to Vegas and put it on red...That's when the real bucks start flowing in.

    I would offer the same them and once again get signed up.  As excited as you are over that 44 cents...just imagine when it turns into dollars and then even more dollars!  Go for it and best wishes.

    Congratulation Tobey100, I am gradually approaching my first payout after one year. Just be patient and keep writing and keep in mind, the more hubs you have the faster the adsense clicks will accumulate.

      Good for you Melpor. You give me hope where I thought there was none, I'm a long way from my first payout and I've been here 8 months.
