HubPages has been good to me. Although it hasn't been nearly a year here yet, I made payout some months ago and haven't seen a clickless day since October. The holiday season was very good with super Amazon earnings.
January, though, has been dismal. Not unexpected; the old timers predicted it and it makes sense. Traffic is still down some and my CTR hasn't been this low for months.
I bet myself that if I was to see a clickless day this would be the month, and today would likely be the day. But I finally did get one click......For $0.00. What a time to get a public service ad!
The question is, did I win my bet or not? One click, but it paid nothing!
You win wilderness.
You're a cup half full kind of person so you won because - why - well because someone read your article and decided to find more information. That HAS to be a win.
I think you're right - if nothing else I got a good laugh from it.
I just found it knee-slapping funny, looking every little bit while writing a new hub for that one click to maintain my record and finally getting it, only to see it paid nothing! Guess maybe I have a sick sense of humor sometimes.
I'm really hoping things do pick up as we near the end of Jan. I picked the worst possible time to start here on Hubpages, late Decemeber. I am doing reasonably well compared to what I hear from other about the start, so am looking forward to things improving!

Tiger has announced he will return to golf at the Masters and to be honest I don't want him to win. I would prefer a Mickelson victory...although if he's in contention it will be exciting!

It has been under reported by MSM, but Donald Trump has always supported the LGBT community. Some of Trump's greatest online supporters are members of the LGBT, and are activist. At one of his yuge rallies,...
