I wrote my first hub on January 11, 2011. Actually even though that sounds like a long time, a lot of hubbers told me it took them a year or more to get their first pay-out, so I feel lucky especially since I got dinged by Google a couple of times in the last couple of months
You are so right, Lyndre. I absolutely was about to give up the ghost. And I still stand firm on the fact that HP needs to change some of their methods for allowing new writers to publish here to make it a better site and to gain more respect for us with Google. The only thing that's kept me here are the writers...the community here. And honestly, the money's nice, but hey, two tanks of gas and it's gone, right!?
I like the fact that I get fan mail from brides who say I've helped them in some way...that makes my day!
Still standing in the corner at this point, DIY. After making monthly Adsense payout every month--often in the first week or so-- for over a year and a half, I failed to do so last month and October seems even worse so far.
Google giveth and Google taketh away. But I'm still glad for yours and others success.
I just received an email from Paypal saying I had received a payment from Hub Pages. I have been in AdSense for 10 months and finally reached my first payout...happy days! Now, I am looking forward to my next and see if...
No, I haven't yet made my AdSense payout (though I'm getting there), but I've had a really good Amazon month, so between the two of them, I've finally reached triple digits in sales!It's not enough to live on -- yet --...
I would like to thank everyone for the massive amount of e-mails when it came to the Top New Hubbers of 2009, if and when you get a chance check out the hub and congratulate them! Happy New Year to all!
