Will I ever get anywhere with this? Will I be stuck and never make a dime, or if I plug away, learn how to backlink etc and actually get organised, make a bit and learn alot?
Is it worth it? All the angst, computer problems and set backs, camera broken, pages not loading... then when the computer does work, you feel drained and not quite up to writing what you were craving to write the day before. Maybe I should use a notebook.. and transcribe when I get that drive to write?
Yep, I think most of us have these thoughts. Is it worth it? I guess that is up to the person writing.
Yes, always write on an editor of some sort. Never write directly into your hub as problems can and will arise and you will lose all in a flash. When your new piece is ready just copy/paste it into your new hub.
Personally, I am not worried about the money - it would be an added bonus. I am here for the experience & to learn.
It wouldn't be good to lose what I'm working on! Okay, so I should write it out first, then retype or copy & paste? Thanks for the tip!
Yep, I use Microsoft Word with the auto-save function enabled to save every 90 seconds. It's saved my butt dozens of times.
Jane is right about the worth, it's speculative. If you want to earn more money through hubpages then never stop learning from those that are. There is a huge difference between quantity and quality and I try to have a mix of both but the quantity side keeps losing out.
Yep.. it's worth it.. my payouts are getting bigger each time I get one
your right. I will make the effort and I do write for the experience, the learning and the topics etc... yet an income derivative at the end of it all would help a little.
Hey Salt, the only person who can hold you back is you. Keep plugging away, learning everything you can and a little bit of organization could help.
Keep it up! Stay positive!

I'm exploring to this whole hub concept... is it really worth all the hassle and uncertainty of writing/working for yourself online or do you think it's better to just get a real brick-and-mortar job?

I have been on hubpages almost two months and I just enjoy writing. Is there others here who just want to write and are not concerned about the money?

as a writer? This is in reference to what others said on a different thread about why some people are leaving Hubpages. I thought it might be nice to talk about the issue not in reference to any particular hubbers who...

I have had many people encourage me to write a book. I've had quite a few experiences in life (good and bad) that I've come through, learning much in the process. One of the BIG trauma's of my life was...
