I mean can it be done? I've made it to sixty cents this month. That's the most I have made so far, but am not sure if you can really make a lot on hubpages? Is it possible to do it? I've just written six to eight hubs today. I'm guessing that the more often you publish hubs and comment on forums, answer questions, etc.. the more successful.
But can people really make a lot at this? Can it work? I'm not very good at linking stuff yet. I haven't learned how to do that.
It's quality, not quantity, that is more effective. I make close to a full-time living from HubPages, but I did it by writing about one Hub per week, not many per day. You need to learn what you are doing and why if earning is your goal. Commenting and being active should be secondary or tertiary to creating good content and learning what works best for your style of writing and your topics.
Thats so true. Thats why I love writing about things I LOVE and just write because I love it. We get inspired about different things all the time and we shouldn't hold ouselves back.
I do like to spend some time giving people feedback. As much as I like to receive it, I also feel it's nice to give a piece of myself too.
Yay, I learned how to link something! I saw the link at the top of the page after I published a hub.
There are people earning over $1000 per month? Is that part-time earnings or full-time earnings?
I mean, depending on the number of hours worked at a job, it could be like full-time worker's pay.
$8.00 x 40 hours: $320 per week. Times the average 4.5 weeks =? $1440 per month?
It may take a while to reach that point, but it can be done.
Wow, that's good incentive. I'm on my kids computers right now. My computer crashed due to my daughters milk spill earlier this year and it finally bit the dust. I love to write. Maybe once I get a new computer, I can spring for internet again at my place and work into the wee hours writing. I hardly ever get writer's block.
that's true, but it would be interesting to keep writing for the love of it and to see a little income to come with it. I'm in a part time job right now where they have cut me back to four or five hours a week since January and it's hard to find other jobs. My dream job would be to get my photography business and paperdoll business off the ground but it would be nice to make a little more from hubpages too. Even five hundred a month would be pretty darn good. And soon I might be moving in with my boyfriend, who doesn't mind if I just help out with groceries for a while while I use my alimony to pay off my credit card that I sunk my self publishing expenses on. That will be nice. Then when that's done, I'll keep getting my alimony for ten more years and anything else will be extra. I had a photography job last week but it's still slow because I'm new to other people.
There are places on the web where you can get paid for your photography. Anther idea too is to make a site with your paper doll business.'
My earnings keep climbing here at Hubpages. I think you need to just stick to it and keep writing quality hubs and you'll see some good money.
Why don't you write some hubs about photography since you're into that and about your paper dollmaking too. That sounds like some good hubs.
That sounds like a good idea. I,m in the process of creating a website with vistaprint. Its going to take some time as I have lots of sets.
I have tried Zazzle and Backprint but have had no luck there.
It is certainly possible but I would suggest earning a "cushion" of money to fall back on in case earning levels on Hubpages suddenly change. It is not the most reliable source of income.
And Hubpages shouldn't be the only source of income when it comes to writing online.
*just adding on to Psyche's comment.
I also suggest saving money that you get with HubPages if you start making several hundred a month or less - since you do not know how much you will earn exactly.
I make a great supplemental income here. I'm not where I can quit my day job, but I sure can pay quite a few bills with what I make here. I'm working on a hub about my journey in response to a request from a few hubbers.
I recently started to make a part-time income on HubPages. So far this month I have made over 300 dollars.
The fact that HubPages introduced the HubPages Ad program, subdomains, and the newer ads has really helped me. Plus the fact that I have not given up, and never stopped writing entirely.
What I want to know though, is if someone writes part-time but makes at least 1000 dollars a month, is that considered full-time income??
"Full-time," as defined how? If someone earns minimum wage and works the minimum number of hours per week to be considered "full-time," they would probably make somewhat more than that, but not hugely more. But that's at minimum wage and minimum hours.
Who is asking this part-time vs. full-time question?
Well, if it's earned by part-time work, then by definition it's part-time income. Whether it would be equivalent to a full-time income in terms of being sufficient as someone's only source of income depends very much on individual circumstances.
$12,000 per year is about £7,500 - there is no way I could survive on that sum in the UK. Not with a mortgage and living on my own.
Actually (adding to/revising my previous post), some employers consider 30 hours per week to be full-time. In that case, using the Federal minimum wage figure (which many states also follow), the $1000/month is actually slightly more than the 30-hour full-time minimum-wage earner would earn.
I am on $22,80 an hour at my job a bit higher than some jobs & less than others so I would need to earn over $500 a week to not work elsewhere . I am a casual not fulltime (40 hours )Would be great to even earn $100 a week at the moment tho ! So far this month I am just over $9 here .
Jay, you most definitely can but further to previous answers, it's not something that you quit the day job to do.
Writing online was initially a sub earner for me and when I lost my offline business at the time of Credit Crunch, I decided to make a go of what I was already doing in a part time capacity. I make a living from writing online but it is a very, very basic one and my days of holidays/vacations or even days off are long gone. I work seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year, twelve to fourteen hours a day, writing, researching, photographing, or whatever. Everything I do is geared towards making money from the text or photographs from my pursuits.
This lifestyle suits me these days and I enjoy it but it's certainly not for everyone...
Writing for hubpages is a part time job for me as I work full time. I enjoy writing and hubpages is one of the sites for which I publish articles. I enjoy providing input on other answers, hubs and forum topics. The amount of money you earn on hubpages depends on the quality and topics on which you write and how much interest they draw. Earnings for part time jobs can be large or small amount but getting the recognition for your writing and the exposure cannot be measured in terms of money.
Exposure for a writer is key to writing success whether you only write for hubpages or other entities. Quality is the key ingredient.

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?

I was wondering if there are many writers earning more than $100 a week? Consistently.Some people just write for their own pleasure, but others write in order to earn money. There are different ways to get your work out...

Yes I was wondering if anyone could tell me how long normally til you see any signs of any earnings at all,or how many hubs do you have to write to start any type of earnings lol

This is more for conversation than anything else. I also thought it would be good for me to get mine down in writing somewhere. I am not sure a forum counts, but here it is anyway.So, what are your goals...
