    I checked my amazon clicks this morning and saw my first Amazon sale after 15 months. Persistence and patience finally paid off. It really feel good to see dollar signs in my report for a change. Also I have a few orders that I am still waiting to see the dollar amount.  It really caught me off guard. Wow!

      Happened to me too - today. Yay!  I had gotten so discouraged with Amazon that I had given up even checking.  But I did so today and saw that there has been an order this month.  Then I checked from the beginning (since I haven't checked consistently) and found another couple that I didn't even know about.  Not much profit, yet  ... but it feels so good to break through the No Sales barrier -- finally!

      Congratulations, melpor,  And vicki simms too.  (and me big_smile)

    The sales came from a couple of history hubs on Native Americans.

    Congratulations! I *just* made my first Amazon sale as well. (It's been 2 months since sign up) I sold a stainless steel tea kettle and i don't even write about food or kitchen stuff! smile

      Congratulations to you too, yenajeon!

      My sales also were not anything I was actually selling or reviewing. I'm sure they just took place when someone clicked through on one of my links and then ended up buying something else.  Hooray for them, however they happened.  BTW - two months in sounds great to me!

        Yes, I'm pretty excited right now. Granted it was only 4% but even that's a start. smile

    Very nice...congratulations....I am sure it must have given you lots of encouragement....believe it's only the first sale which is important....all others are just repetitions.

    That is great news! I finally wrote a few product hubs, so hopefully I'll make some $ from amazon one of these days. So far, all my earnings have been from adsense.

    Here's to more great amazon $$ coming your way!
