My first Bitcoin transaction was 0.001 BTC coming from the Bitcoin faucet hosted on appspot. After that, and for a long time, all I earned came from faucets and free offers. Last December, I found an advertising network that pays in Bitcoins and decided to put up ads on my (previously non-profit) websites, because even if my servers were sponsored I like to have a little money should I need to move a server paid by myself. After that, all the little money I earn came mainly from showing ads on my websites.

I only wish I had discovered this thing of Bitcoin earlier when the mining difficulty was still low... when I started using Bitcoin, getting profit mining with a nVidia graphics card, was already nearly impossible (I got more from faucets in one month than I'd get from mining in the same period of time).

Got it by sending money via psc to vendor. About year ago.

I mined it, and got it deposited after about a month of figuring out my igfx wasn't powerful enough to mine effectively. Then I bought a 6870 and now I get one btc every 4 or 5 days in a pool!

Bitcoin Faucet, like so many others. And then I mined and mined for about a month until I had maybe BTC0.50 tops... 'cause I was on a Radeon 4550. lol Maybe once you could turn a profit with that much, but I think I wound up donating it all to the EFF before I got out of mining.

Got it first from mining at Slush's pool. I think I got 0.2 / day and after several days passed I got my first full 1.0 bitcoin.

My first coin came from mining with a very cheap GPU. Since then got some better GPU's but I still only consider myself a part time miner.

My first partial bitcoin was from the faucet. As for a whole one, I got my first one from an exchange.

The first Bitcoin I got was from a guy at another forum, he was giving a very small amount of Bitcoins to people who completed some offers for him.

The zorgberg is an enthusiast and wannabe miner/trader.  Still working to achieve some bitcoins and waiting for a better graphics card.

I mined it back when you could still mine bitcoins with lousy hardware. Too bad I lost interest shortly after.
