I did that back in 2010 when I was earning well over $1000 per month here. Would I do it now? Definitely not.
That's not to say you can't have a successful online career - you can - it's just not a good idea to rely on HP, or any other site you don't own, for all of your income.
Good point, Susana S. It's beneficial to remember that we are subject to the rules and regulations of Hubpages. They can delete our accounts arbitrarily. Therefore it would be very risky to depend on Hubpages for your income.
Caleb, accounts are not deleted arbitrarily. Accounts are deleted for valid reasons. I digress here. It is not good to put one's eggs in one basket. One has to diversify their internet income.
WOW! I am envy at you because you were earning 1K per month. How i wish I could be Like that too.
Very prudent advice, Susana. It is fit for purpose and evidence based. Thank you for responding!
I agree with Susana about not putting all your eggs in one basket. If I could, I would but sadly the gulf between what little I get from HP and the more I get from my job is simply too large and unlikely to ever get close enough to make it worth taking the risk.
I have only ever looked at HP as a hobby that pays me a little cash and I am happy with that. My aim is to get a pay out every month and when I achieve that, I will be happy with my lot here.
Nope. I love my day job too much. Just one website as a career would bore me to tears.
I don't know that I would quit to specifically make Hubpages alone my career, but my goal is to be able to make enough money in my online writing as a whole to quit my day job or at least scale back from full time. I'm about halfway there. The only thing that concerns me is the cost of healthcare.
If I could rely on it definatley! Writing's a passion to me I haven't felt so good doing something in along time so I love it, it's like therapeutic. So if it provided enough for a income 100%.
Absolutely! But only if I could earn enough money doing it!
As people always remind us, diversification is the name of the game with any type of investment. Since Hubpages is more of a long time investment, it pays to spread your efforts around, not just on this one site. With a good plan it is possible to thrive online, if you are doing what you love.

How do you define middle class?Many times I heard or read that middle class economic situation is the true gauge in which you can check if the economy is improving, but how do you really define middle class?

How do you spend your HubPages earnings?Do you go on a shopping spree? My friend is a prolific HubPages-er and he goes to one of those $2.00 bargain shops and buys so much stuff!
