It's not easy to make money writing hubs. Some are quite successful though. It is possible to make some christmas money for the end of the year, but to make $300-$500 per week is a real challenge. I don't get anywhere near that. Perhaps if I made money through my Amazon.com ads I could make some decent money from Hubpages, but so far Amazon.com has been a bust. Good luck! It's not that easy. You need to produce high traffic hubs and sign up for all the ad sites to make money.
