Hubpages Is Where I Started Online

Hubpages showed me that I could make money online - I knew other people did - but until you personally start getting cash in your account - it didn't feel real - well not for me anyways.

I started my Passive Income blog to document my journey to making a full time income.

How To Make Money Online

I used to tell beginners to start with Hubpages because it was easy to get hubs ranked in the search results.

But times have changed and at the moment I am not entirely convinced that Hubpages is going in the right direction.

For a number of years now I have been focussing on my own websites - if you are looking to make money online I suggest you do the same.

If you are looking for a step-by-step course and forum to take you from keyword research through developing a site to making money online check out my Keyword Academy review

I totally recommend this course - there is nothing better online that i know of - and you can check it out for $1 - no catch! However if you want to make money fast and easy - you will be sadly disappointed - if you want fast cash -get a job - if you want to build a buisness check out The Keyword Academy.

    Driving Across the Nullarbor: A How To Guide

    Driving the Nullarbor plain of Australia is one of those things you just have to do once in a life time. Its an accessible adventure, which unlike many other of Australia's iconic drives doesn't require a 4WD - but it isn't a Sunday drive either. ...

    Skirts For Men

    9 years ago

    Skirts are not seen as mainstream fashion in many western countries: well in the USA anyway. Well this is my hub to prove that it is in fact pretty common in many cultures for men to wear skirts or long-flowing robes. In fact trousers weren't even...

    Ballroom Dance Music - Modern Ballroom Songs

    Ballroom Dance's music used to be strictly boring. Many people probably still expect to hear gorgeous dancers to be accommpanied by the ever-green light orchestra which somehow manages to make everything from a waltz to a paso doble sound the same,...
