    I earned my first $ 2 years ago when I was uploading videos on my youtube channel. In one month I earned 2$. Not much but it was a great motivation for me :)

    I earned my first Money when I was playing a facebook game and wondered how dahell did they do that, I mean how they made a game. So i kept reasearching studying and finally replicated the game I used to play! I then Sold In game Items on my game and got my first ever $15 :) It was a facebook game btw. 2014 >_<

    Took me 2 or3 years to finally replicated it. Decompiled the game just to learn how it works and finally understand.

    I first made 'money' using Points 2 Shop when I was about 15. I used to play the games and do the shitty little surveys to collect points which I would trade for games and stuff from Amazon

    There was a Racing game where you had to drive round a track and not touch the sides. You gamble your points against other players, and I used a tool to slow down the computer to about 10 FPS, so I could go around the track perfectly every time .. I was making about $30 a day playing that game LOL .. Eventually more people clocked on, and they managed to put an end to it, but it was fun while it lasted.

    Anyway, I was curious as to how they could give away things for free, so I did some research and found out about CPA. From there, I learned about SEO and Paid traffic methods, then from there I just dove head first into IM and now I am pretty well versed in all areas of the industry.

    It's been a fun ride .. I love it :)

    Edit: It wasn't cash I won from that game, it was points that could be spent on Amazon. I bought myself a PS3, my mother some £150 hair straighteners, about 20 PS3 games and a shit load of other stuff .. I was only 15, I was buzzing :D

    Paid to click. 2009. Got $10 check and the bank asked me for $9 to give me the money, so I still have this check.

    Than 2x$100 from adsense. On the second check I got my account banned while requesting the money from the bank and got $150 penalty for some investigation.

    After failing with IM over and over I finally got into apps

    After failing with apps/games over and over, I finally did something right, hit sweet rankings and starting earning online... Nothing compares to that high...

    Technically 15 years ago using ad fly, only another 15 years to go till I reach the cash out level, that is if my auto blogs don't stop running by then.
