    It's working isn't it?  I earned 2 cents my first month, but didn't know how to find out and thought it was 0.  A relief when I finally did figure out that I had earned something.  Anything, just so I know it was working! smile

    Good work!-- Remember that math riddle about earning two pennies then four then eight? 
    It works kind of like that here (not exactly-- depending on how well you stick with it).
    The totals seem paltry at first.. and for quite a while, but they do multiply in a similar way after time.

        definitely congratulations, i'm new here myself and have earned about .02 from ad sense. I don't know how it works where you earn with no ads clicked but it's two pennies. Like someone said above don't spend it all in one place. Congratulations.
