      It can take  a while to start earning money, months. It can take up to 10 months to reach the AdSense payout.

      You can make it faster by doing keyword research and articles that people using search engines will find.

      If you don't mind me asking, how old are you?

          Unfortunately, you have to be 18 to write here.

          You could write for http://www.triond.com. They pay via pay pal and you only have to be 13. They pay when you reach 50 cents in earnings.

            But i don't have a credit card and my parents woulden't let me use theirs. Do you know any other sites that could pay me?

          Please make sure you edit for grammar smile

          And I'm not sure, but I don't think colloquial language is permitted. I'm still a bit new as well so I could be wrong.

    The sad part is he, at 13, actually wrote an article that was more interesting and informative than a lot of adult-written hubs.

    The Grammar was better than some of them too! (It does need a little work though hon)

    Keep writing Pyschopath!  I thought it was pretty good.

        Now i know that my articles is worth reading
        edit:
        "....are worth reading..."
        and get rid of "that"

        the other stuff (like capitalization) I won't nitpick because I will presume you're just writing in the vernacular.

        But yeah keep writing and start reading. Read everything!!!!! (read my hubs! ha ha jk- [kinda])

          LMAO Hutchinson, you do realize that most ADULTS do not know what the word vernacular means? 

          As for the grammar, Pyschopath, asking your teacher for help would not only improve your grammar--but might actually help you find places to write.  English teachers are generally pretty good about knowing places that welcome aspiring writers.

            You set the price of your book and make money off whatver price you set. The higher you price yoru book, the more you get paid when it sells.

                Just books. But whose to say your book can't be a book of several articles?!
                All the information you need is on the website.

    Not without some sort of bank account, no.  You might want to check out the library for a book called "The Writer's Market" they list some magazines that want entries from non-adults. :)The pay would probably be better too.
