It only took 10 months! LOL!
I'm hoping the next one only takes five. Seriously, I'm trying to learn about this stuff and am currently learning how to start up my own websites. That is going rather slowly as well.
Anyway, now I can go Christmas shopping next month!
I have to wait for another 10 months to make mine
You'll make it--it probably won't take you 10 months. I'm a little impaired in this area.
Congratulations Pam, you've worked hard. You deserve it. I hope the next cheque comes much quicker!
Way to go! Much deserved! I suspect that I will take considerably longer. I'm just about to break thirty bucks, at the nine month mark.
Well done, Pam.
Well done - its a nice feeling isn't it! My first took more than 12 months, my second 3 months so maybe before Xmas?
Congrats Pam- that is exciting. I'm getting close, about another 20 dollars to go, maybe I'll get mine as a christmas present huh?
Well done Pam! So March we shall expect a thread reading "Whoo Hoo! I finally hit my Second Google pay-out here!"
I'm at 5 months, and trust me, I haven't got much chance of getting to $100 in the next 5!
I'm not going to cash my first Google check, I'm going to frame it, longest $100 I will have ever earned!
Good for you! Congrats. regards Zsuzsy
well I am so happy for you...clapping
guess Google is alot harder to make money if you are a small writer.I'm at 4.05 after a few months.
it's been a learning experience...;
Congratulations! I think it's a good program for extra money.
Congrats Pam! Boy, it seems like a long way off for me too. You deserve it, and you got there writing quality stuff! That in itself is something to celebrate!
Well done Pam - your next payout will surely come much more quickly! Seeing your post made me go and check my Adsense earnings. I have now discovered that I made my first $100 through Hubpages last month (11 months after I started, and after writing only 20 hubs) - it had got lost among my other Adsense income. So now I'm celebrating too!
Thanks everyone! And congrats to you Caspar!
It took a long time, but hopefully the next one will take a shorter time. Lissie, I'm still working on getting WordPress up at my website. I'll get there. So much to figure out, but hey--I'm not at the bank! <cheers! wild applause!>
Thanks Pam and WHoArtNow. Keep at it Pam - income from my websites started with a few drips and is now a reliable trickle. When I first started I was over the moon if I had a single 5 cent click in a day from Adsense. A few months later I was really pleased if I hit $1 a day, then a little later my idea of a good day was $10 income. Now I consider $20 to be a good day. I just need to keep focused and keep it growing, until I can walk out of my day job and make a living doing what I enjoy!
This is awesome...I love to hear stories like these!
Congratulations! I am still looking forward to my "first time."
Hmmm...this just got me thinking...we should create a list of 'first timers' somewhere....that would be awesome to see and probably pretty motivating.
Yes I've heard it builds--that it is cumulative, so the more stuff you publish and the longer it is online the faster the ad revenue builds up. I hope so. That would be awesome, kind of like residuals when you sell an insurance policy.
I actually recieved mine last month. Just didn't want to make a big deal about it. Congrats pgrundy on your success at HubPages.
Great posts, everyone The very first payout does always excite us
Hey, congrats Pam!!!
Many more payouts to come!
Well earned congratulations, Pam!
I love to hear this kind of good news. Selfishly speaking, it makes my own efforts feel more worthwhile.
Way to go!
Congrats on that!
I am moving slowly to that milestone myself!
Congratulations, Pam! Well deserved for all your excellent hubs!
Congrats Pam! There's nothing quite like the high that first cheque brings!

Over the past couple of weeks I have noticed in my adsense account that I have earned a few cents from a couple of hubs that have had visitors but no ad clicks, they are only payments of 1 cent each time someone visits them, is this normal?......jimmy

It took three months, I guess that's not bad! Now if I could just meet that threshold every month I'd be thrilled.Today's my wedding anniversary, so this is a nice "gift"!

I've been with HubPages for 4 years and have done well with the HubPages Ad Program and selling things on Amazon, but Google Adsense has been a trickle. I am finally close enough to the $100 payout that My New Year's Resolution Is To Finally Cash Out With Google Adsense! How is Google...
