**REMINDER** Set your coinbase before you start mining else you will not get your block reward!!

I've already seen 15 ether mined to address '0x0' and I'm sure this number will only go up. Don't waste your time mining to nowhere!

Check your coinbase is your account using:

web3.eth.coinbase

In the console. If it returns nothing then you need to set your coinbase:

In Geth's Javascript Console:

web3.miner.setEtherbase(web3.eth.accounts[0])

For Eth in the command line:

$eth --address <your address goes here>

then check again!

Good luck.
