    A big thanks to all who have taken the time to read my hubs!

        Welcome, Joseph Merlin!  Finding HubPages has been a fantastic experience for me. 

        If you like writing and don't mind earning some money doing it, this is the place to do it.

        I'm looking at a record-breaking month right now.  My earnings are up 35% ytd and that's even with the Panda slap we had.

      wow great work I cannot wait to see more zeros on my page views. I have almost 5,000 views and still havent earned .01 using adsense. How do you generate adsense money?

      1. KCC Big Country profile image84
        KCC Big Countryposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Thanks, Nspeel.   I think it was 3 weeks before I started seeing the first pennies trickle in on Adsense.   It really depends on the types of topics you write about. 

        For me, I had to experiment with topics.  I did several HubChallenges (writing 30 hubs in 30 days) and some of those topics have been my best money-earners.  Some of the least expected things generate the most.  The key is writing for a large enough audience that is also prone to clicking on Google ads.  You can study SEO and research keywords to help figure out what those things are too.

          I just wanted to add that you, KCC, have been one of my biggest inspirations here on HP, ever since you posted your first stats - I think it was the one about how you reached 100,000 views.

          That was so motivational when I was on about 5,000 or something.

          Thankyou. You deserve a 1M accolade smile

    Thankyou for sharing not just your well-deserved delight, but especially the flow chart of your progress to this awesome achievement. I've been here only a few months, and have begun to feel that just getting to 10,000 pageviews is looking a long way off - much less a million! But when I look at your stats of time taken and hubs loaded to attain your first 10,000, I'm amazed to see that I'm actually ahead of that curve!! NOT to say for a nanosecond that I'll necessarily ever get to that magic million mark, but just that realisation alone has given me the spur I needed to stay focused, and increase my output.

    I've copied your 'schedule of attainment', and filed it on my desktop under the heading "Inspiration". I'll look at it often, I'm sure

    So again, thankyou very much. And sincere congratulations.

    CONGRATS!!

    I'm not far off from it myself.  I'll be celebrating four years since my first published Hub in October, and should hit my first millionth page view before that benchmark.

    One million views is absolutely fabulous.  I should hit a half million in about 3 weeks or so.  You have definitely been an encouragement and inspiration.  As you suggested, I've kept a diary of sorts of my HubPages milestones.

    Thank you rmcrayne!  Looks like I ticked over to my 3 yr anniversary this weekend.  Another milestone to celebrate.

    If I don't see you in the next 3 wks, congrats on your half a million!
