      Thanks for sharing. I am enjoying every minuet of writing and seeing income rising. My plan is to write enough hubs to buy a pair of eyeglasses. I have been partially blind in a sense with this old pair and no insurance. So I made a goal to write for hub pages to buy my new glasses. I got tired of bumping into things, not being able to work or drive because I could not afford my glasses. So, I came across hub pages and now my goal is to keep making that money to buy what I need. The excitement is there for all of us. Keep up the good work.

    Congratulations, hopefully there are many more in your future!

    Would you rather make a million dollars in one month or a penny doubled every day for thirty days?

      penny doubled smile  I think that would put up at $10 Mill? I'm awful at math, even with a calculator.

    If you can make a penny you can make a dollar! Well done - just keep writing good quality hubs and the pennies will change to dollars and over time you will reach your payout! Welcome to Hubpages! smile

    Think about this way. In my forth month of writing here, I've made ten times on HP ads what I did in my second month. The possibilities are endless smile

    HubPages makes you really appreciate the small things.  Kind of humbling.

    I had the same feeling on seeing my first penny or two.  The pennies are now growing into nickels and dimes...  :-)

      Glad to see what the rate is 1 penny in 5 weeks. Hope I'll make that here!

        Actually I signed up five weeks ago but didn't start until last week. So a little bit faster than it looks.

          You are right. Got my penny much faster than I thought. Have a good day.

    We all have to start somewhere, and earning a penny is better than paying to use this site!  Good luck and keep writing!
