      I know saleheen - it is so unfair.  What can I say?  The Google Gods must have looked at my content and thought they were onto a winner.

    See Newbie - that's what hard work does for you. It takes you that little bit nearer to wherever it is you're going.

    What's your destination again? Cos you put a lot of numbers out there. Was almost like reading my mothers credit card bill.

      I am less sure about my destination than I was when I started.  But I will leave no turd unstoned, no cliche unspoken until I reach my personal Everest.

      Watch out Misha.. newbie coming through.

      er. I jest obviously.  No offence and all that.

    Early days Mark, early days!

      I sort of know that, well, live in hope that a magic switch will flip somewhere.  Trouble is I don't really know it, and I have these moments of time that are insufficient to write anything other than (yet) another of 'those' forum posts.

        I think that a lot of us are waiting for a 'magic switch', but I suspect that hard work and gaining knowledge is the only way forward.

        You have a lot of hubs for the short time you have been here, so keep writing and you will come about.

        Look on the bright side - you don't have to pay income tax on your earnings yet!

          Thanks CM, no easy route to success.  Bother. 

          On the plus side, it is great fun.

    I've been here 9 mo and made $24.90.

    I keep telling you and telling you, you are going to do fine.

    You are far too smart and witty to fail.  Well, I suppose you could just give up and un-publish all your hubs in a fit of rage or spend a drunken evening replacing all the text capsules with lorem ipsum text and all your photos with Goatse clips.. actually, that sounds like fun, doesn't it?

    Hang in there. You'll be fine.

      I had to look up both lorem ipsum and Goatse. I could have done without Goatse. lol

        Sorry about that..

      Mark Ewbieposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks Pcunix for the motivational stuff and the two new expressions.  I had to look them up as well. I could have done with Goatse although interesting, but the first one was very useful. Now I can really churn those hubs out...

        Just two more things you can add to your new Word selling service - though I hope you don't allow refunds because you are bound to get requests on one of those.

    Rome wasn't built in a day - never ever ever give up !  I am going to keep at it even if I write hubs that only a few visit - I have a couple like that too.

    You need to practice patience...
