    I sold my first t-shirt on Zazzle, today!  I am so excited.  It was the: "I still miss my ex, but my aim is improving" shirt.  Thanks so much to Sweetie Pie who introduced me to the site!  My job is going great, (I think,) and I really appreciated everyone's comments, to those of you who have congratulated me on getting my job.  I changed my avatar for the site... (I felt disconcerted seeing my face stare up at me all the time,) so I just wanted to post something wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and thanking everyone for their support.  This community is totally wonderful, it's done wonders for my confidence.  Thanks guys!

    Thanks everybody!  I am LOVING it.  I'm busting my butt cleaning my place out to get a room mate, (hopefully another single mom,) and working full time + between my temp job, (through November,) and this crazy internet thing.  Hopefully in a couple of weekends I can start picking up Mystery Shops on Saturdays, too.  I'm over-whelmed, but with my folks, grandmother & Aunts' help it looks like I'm finally going to be digging myself out of this financial hole!  Do *not* take off your e-bay, amazon or adsense ads, even if you're not making money on any of them, they're bound to pay-off sometime, right?  You could end up missing out on a huge sale if you do, and that'd be a shame.  We're not here to make money, we're here to write.  I know, I know, it's my opinion, I don't mean to be so forceful about it, but I really feel like if you continue to focus on the writing of quality content the money could come.  It's not gonna be a lot, but you'll have earned every cent of it.

      Well done Nicole on the Zazzle sale!  I disagree with you about the ebay/amazon capsules, though.

      I used to use them in every Hub, because I felt they added colour to my Hub, even if I didn't make any sales.  But then I realised - I want people to exit my Hub by clicking on an Adsense ad.   If they click on an eBay or Amazon capsule instead, I miss out on an Adsense click. And historically, almost no one buys once they click on eBay or Amazon, so I'd rather have the Adsense, thanks.

      So now I've removed nearly all my Amazon capsules (as an Australian, I can only get gift certificates, not money, anyway).  I've left the eBay capsules because they have another benefit - the updating of the capsule helps add fresh content to the Hub.
