Why write on Hubpages?

    I have a great reason - over the time I've been here, I've slowly got to grips with a new way of writing, how to earn online and in short - I now earn enough to pay my rent, my household bills and still have enough left over to live on.

    Granted, my rent is only $380 a month but like I said, I now earn enough to cover my home bases - pardon the pun. And none of the above includes the money that I earn from freelancing which is about the same as HP earnings - another by-product of learning to use the site over the time I've been here.

    This is from a big fat zero when I first found the site. So - write, learn what you need to know and work smart (a sunforged term).

    Don't worry about what you earn at the start - think ahead. Using all the tools you'll find on the site, as well as all the information you can access will open you up to a level of income you may not otherwise have been exposed to.

    Happy Hubbing smile

      Wow, I am impressed with the fact that you are earning something at all.

      I am earning nothing.  LOL.

      To be honest I really am writing to practice my art.  I would not mind earning something, but I really love being on here to write, and have my work read.  To me that is a great payoff.

      Still, I would not mind some earnings.  LOL.

    It is funny. I just put "I'm ganna be rich!" As my facebook quote to 780 of my real life friends.

    And that was solely because of this site. I might have just made great money learning about a site through here. We got the bait out there, just need to see if it takes the bait!

    Not to mention even if that falls through I am about to make an unbelievable amount of money in the future. When I really get the hang of this!

    Great post Frog, you better believe I voted for you in the contest!

      Well I'm pretty positive you'll be saying the same in no time at all Mikey. You're a good all round participant on the site (I notice things even I'm not as active as I was - writing you see lol), and I can see how your writing and hubs are developing so you'll soon be seeing the dollars increase more and more.

      And thanks for the vote - but for what smile

    I just realised that I can now comfortably manage Cags. I thought it a good motivator for others. My rent has dropped a bit this month because I've moved, which allows for a wider margin of financial comfort. Plus my earning power has increased anyway smile

    Funny about the rent drop. Moved to a nicer place, it's bigger and better for a dozen other reasons yet cheaper to rent. Good times big_smile

    That's just brilliant - being able to live somewhere without having to work daily for your rent. You've already done the work and your hard work is now supporting you for months and years to come smile

    Glad to hear your doing well making money online! smile

    Now your next step should be to make your first website and keep building up. smile

    Funny you should ask that question. I checked my Adsense account this morning and still nothing new, Amazon, two clicks, no sales. That lead me to thinking, maybe I'm wasting my time here expecting to earn money.

    But I enjoy writing here, the community and the easy use of the capsules. I guess I'm 200 hubs away and a couple of years from earning but it's a good place to park my articles. Thanks for the boost, just when I needed it.

    What an achievement to be able to cover your rent and more! Thanks for the encouragement to hubbers like me who still have a long way to go. smile

    Always good to hear when someone earns a decent amount, thanks Frog. Mine is trickling in but I need to do more hubs, hopefully over the break (I have 2 weeks off work) I can do some more serious writing. smile

    Very Inspirational! It took me 2 years before I started to earn money. The most important thing is to not quit.

    I forgot to add that I had a shot at writing a hub that was related to something Misha achieved. He posted that he'd topped $100 in one day, and Nelle (Hoxie) dropped in and asked if anyone fancied writing a hub that may achieve the same potential.

    We ended calling it the $100 a day hub. Anyway, along with others, I went off and wrote one. It's about four or five months old now and earns me around $3.35 minimum per day on it's own. Hopefully, in a year or so it will earn a lot more per day than that.

    So that one's been a good help so far. It shows that writing on Hubpages can and will pay off.

    And thankyou to everyone else that's come and replied smile

      Well Flightkeeper you have a credible amount of hubs, I'm sure some are working for you. Here's to your future earnings ... and hopefully enough coming in to allow you some of life's little luxuries big_smile
