Yesterday I checked my Google AdSense account to find that I earned .01 from my HubPages account! To me, seeing that penny in earnings was like winning the lottery. That penny made my day!
Hold on a minute. Don’t think I’ve lost my mind. You have to understand why .01 is so very important. I found out quite some time ago that if I can earn .01 I can earn $1,000 and more. It all starts with the first penny. Have you met any self-made millionaires that skipped earning the first penny?
All about the Tweakage
Once a site has proven to me that there is the capability to earn money such as HubPages has proven with my penny, the rest is all about the tweakage. How much I earn and how fast I earn money all depends on learning the ropes and tweaking the articles.
Personally, I’m not a huge social networking fan. There’s nothing wrong with Digging, Redditing, Twittering and all the rest, I just don’t spend a lot of time doing it. On occasion I will Digg, Tweet and the like, but more often than not I tweak.
I find that once quality content is grabbed a hold of by other sites and backlinked to, it takes on a life of its own. I’m patient and willing to wait for my articles to make their impact on the internet.
Back to HubPages
Considering that it’s been 5 days since I placed my first hub on the site, I’m very excited about my earnings. As far as I see it, the sky is the limit. I find HubPages to be a welcome addition to my freelance writing bag of tricks.
