      Actually, if you check Adsense, they tell you they'll pay at the end of NEXT month, so you will get the check some time in January.  Just in time to pay the Christmas credit card bill!

        Thanks Marisa- but I don't use credit cards anymore- thank God! My first check is going to go back into my writing- I'm going to start a website- I'm just working on the what and how right now!
        Thanks!

          Let me know if you need any help, Godaddy domains are 9.99 right now but if you use the coupon code "Chill3" (no quotes, and it never expires, I have used it 20 times this month!) it knocks it down to 7.49 smile

          Hosting at gatorhost is pretty good... 15.00 a month unlimited space, bandwidth, and alot of useful features (just about everything possible).

            I use cleverdot.com to host all my sites. $3.95 month to month, or only $24.95 a year. They offer all the extras all the big boys do. They also have great customer service. The bandwidth does have a limit but even with hundreds of pages I have never come close to maxing it out.

            When your ready for a name, let me know, I create them for a hobby. No charge LOL.

              That is an excellant deal (24.00 a year), for my uses however I will be using ALOT of bandwidth and thousands of pages so I need both unlimited BW and DS, I also use gator because when it comes time to sell my site (I only hold on to them for 3 months with the exception of 5 or so I keep) they make it incredibly easy (for the company I use) same deal with godaddy, all about buying/selling sites but for the person just putting up a site, a blog site, whatever, I would go with your suggestion as this is perfect, mine may be too much juice (and a more money.. about 100 a year ish)

    This is truly face breaking news. Roger wonders if he could also experience such a sucess. He has legal bills to pay. (Face breaking doesn't come cheap.)

    (Third person speech makes me the face breaking king.)

    Actually Dorsi, when you reach plus 10k you will get your cheque Fed Ex'd to you. The courier knocks at your door and delivers it in a beautiful coloured satchel. All very fandangle it is. Get the camera ready when this happens...

    After that, just get the money electronically funds transferred. Much quicker.

    By the way, congrats to you and hope you have many many more.
