I received my first AdSense check today.
Granted, it was just a little over $100, and it took me about a year to get there, but still — there is something delightful about getting a hundred-dollar check for something I do on a regular basis anyway. At the very least, it covers the annual expense of registering and hosting my website.
My Amazon.com affiliate ads accrue earnings much more slowly — only if people make a purchase through my links. I recently discovered that my own purchases don't count (darn it), but that my husband's do.
I'm also thinking of looking into other advertising and affiliate opportunities for my blogs. I'll let you know if I find anything worthwhile!

I'm always amazed at the folks who say they make thousands each month with Adsense. I generally earn a hundred or two per month, but that's over several blogs. It's a good thing we don't blog for the Adsense checks, isn't it??
If you're looking for more affiliate programs, my only recommendation is Indeed.com's publisher program. They're pay per click, so not really an affiliate program, but they're the only program I get a good payout from.
Hope all is well with you (and the cute horse). I'm slowly recovering from the mono, but at least I can sit up and type at the same time now. Yippee!! :-)
Thanks, Amy. I'm checking out Indeed.com's publisher program right now, and it looks like a good one! Thanks for the recommendation!
Congratulations on earning your first AdSense check! I still haven't gotten one yet and I was beginning to believe they were fictional! :)
Mine was certainly real, but I sometimes wonder about the claims that you can earn thousands every month just from AdSense. ;o)
