are you able to make enough online to support yourself?
Is it even possible these days?
I work as a CNA. I have a day job and a night job and a internet job....
Lol, I work for a school, but during my free hours I create websites and SEO... brings home a bit of extra income!
I am a freelance medical translator and often work 18+ hours per day, which is why I have written so few hubs. I use the forum here for light relief when my brain starts to fry from work to the extent that sometimes I forget which language I'm working in at any given time.
I also sometimes produce book indexes.
I originally started here hoping to get some residual income so I can work fewer hours, however it seems this will never happen.
I work in transport management during the day and do some fitness instruction work (Paid and Unpaid!) too including taking spinning classes
I'm studying for my Personal Trainer Qualification which in part is why I'm on hubpages- I write based on my studies and to increase my personal knowledge, the fact that I am making a little for it is always a bonus.
Hence my writing having a slant twoards sports performance and with the odd hub that's a bit of a diversion to keep my mind active.
I do nothing but work, well, sleep sometimes. Sometimes I am so tired, I look at my food on a plate thinking, no, I cannot eat it, it requires work, opening and closing my mouth, and chewing, and swallowing, no way! I hate this but have no idea what to do to get rid of that lifecycle. Too stupid, I guess...
You need a rich man (j/k..re other thread)
I work full time as a freelance writer. Usually, the hubs that I publish here are rejects from inquiries ultimately not accepted. When I don't have contact work, I'll ask a publication if there interested in an article about such-and-such. If they're interested, I'll write the article and submit it. If it gets rejected for some reason, then I post it here. I modify it for SEO reasons, but generally it's about the same as a print media publication.
I don't earn a living online, but it is nice to see a few extra bucks in my bank account every now and then - especially for work that would have otherwise been dumped.
I don't have a day job at the moment. Dang corporate downsizing! You'd think I'd have more time to write on hubs but have barely been on here since it happened. Evidently playing Mr. Mom is a pretty full time job too.
I have a day job, but even if I could give it up I wouldn't . . . I want to spend my whole life doing it. It's sure nice to see the extra money though, and a couple of times it has saved the rent from being late!
My day job is a Chemist at major pharmaceutical company. My company is currently doing a headcount reduction so right now I about to take a severance package after 32 years there and go semi-retire until I start collecting social security. I am here for residual income and it has come in handy sometimes and hope to increase my time here for more income one day.
I work as a live in nanny. It's not a bad job, but I barely get paid enough to pay off my car. As a college student I'm naturally always broke. Lol! I'm super new at hubpages but hopefully I will be able to make a little bit of extra money.
I was a stay-at-home mom for many years, then got a job in a marketing dept. Unfortunately that lasted only 3 years before I got laid off. Haven't worked f/t since and am now juggling a few p/t jobs, none of which pay that much, teaching at a college and reporting for my local paper and my own freelance writing business. I was hoping HP would be a place to bring in a few extra bucks but so far, it's only been a few extra coins.
I'm a nursery nurse by day looking after children from birth to age 4. I would love to be able to work from home and spend more time with my daughters, but unfortunately bills need to be paid. I would love to be able to make money online but I have never found a genuine on line opportunity. I have made a few cents on HP, and hopefully when I have mastered SEO I will be able to make it to a payout one day! Lol.

Just wondering. Has anyone left their day job and concentrated instead on freelance writing? I'd be very much interested to learn how it went. Thanks!

I am trying to build an online residual income and want to ask people here if they make money. Any reply would be helpful.

I'm currently trying to get my husband to help me write some hubs. I'm happy to type them up and edit them, I basically want his input on topics that I know nothing about - because the more topics you cover the more...

Do any hubbers spend 40 hours a week (or more) writing and researching hubs? Does the effort pay off if the site is treated like a regular job?

If you could have any job in the world, which one would you like? For me, I can cross CEO of BP out...That leaves me with my dream job of being a small business owner. Maybe a small accounting firm or consulting...
