    As of yesterday, all I had garnered from 3 months of hard work was am invoice from Google and two EBay referrals.

    Then a NICE sale yesterday that, if it sticks, would cover all my expenses to date.

    Please keep your fingers crossed

    wtg Kevin! I have a photocopy of my first check around here somewhere, that first sale gave me an incredible boost. I said to myself, "Hey, this might actually work!" and I was off to the races after that. I've gone from 1 sale every two weeks to 1 sale a day, to multiple sales a day, to 'ooooohhhhhh Nellllie'. It's like a train, you keep plugging away, it keeps picking up steam, pretty soon you couldn't stop it if you tried.

    Good luck!

    Very nice, it's a great day when the hard work starts to pay off. And, it scales.

    Congratulations

    That first sale is so sweet, even if it is only a few cents.
    It is now 20 months since I had my first sale. Wow, how time goes by so fast.

    Wonderful!!

    And, it will have a cumulative effect. Just keep making pages. Those you make today will add to those you make next year and it will eventually snowball.

    I'll never forget where I was when I saw I had gotten my first sale. I was sitting in an internet cafe in Belgium checking my stats and there it was. I sat there thinking "this really can work." I've been off and running since. Congrats to you Kevin!
