I'm with Susana, are you talking about Hubpages? I've only been here four months and I've seeing upward trend in my earnings and hope to reach payout in a couple of months. Hubpages didn't promise me anything.. but gave me the tools to be able to write better and earn money and it was up to me to make it or break it. I am not even a writer.. I was a blogger for three years, that's it. Blogging made me realized that I love to write so here I am. It's hit or miss for me right now.. but I'm still learning and will continue learning as the internet is evolving. I work hard and it's paying off for me. I think it's the same in whatever you do, you reap what you sow. I hope this helps a little.
