    I am looking for a Job that will help support my writing habits and keep me honest. Any suggestions?

      Hi.  You can sign up to write for worldvillage.com where you can share in their adsense revenue in the meantime.  I've been on hubpages for years now and haven't made a cent in revenue sharing whereas on worldvillage, with 200 or so articles, I've made over $900 in one year.  I'm not saying that this is a job, but it's fun to write on different topics and know that you might make a few cents for it. 

      Not everyone is accepted when you sign up, but if you do this on the side, you may have a few extra dollars in your bank account.

          Workathomemom I find it hard to believe you haven't made a cent on hubpages in two years.

          Have you signed up for adsense and amazon?

      I guess that would be completely dependent on what you want to do for work? I mean, you could probably get a job almost anywhere, but 90% of them are going to be minimum wage and probably require at least two of them, just to support yourself.

      I don't have any other suggestions, except for the fact that you could read more and more about HubPages, and dive directly in.

      I mean, as an example: Sunforged is thinking about doing another 60DC Challenge, which is all about writing 30 hubs in 30 days, and then 30 days for promotions and backlinking.

      From what I understand, the first Challenge undertaken, was a great success and many people who took part are seeing the value already.

      Sorry to run-off like that, but a friend of mine was in the Challenge and she told me that it was the greatest thing she has accomplished. Not to mention, all that she learned. wink

      But, that's about all I have for you. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. hmm

        Great help. I am new to challenges. I will check it out. Where do I go to try it?

      SaMcNutt, you can do 30 day challenges on your own. The problem is having the knowledge and know how of promotion and backlinking which is most important.

      Maybe you can check out Sunforged's profile and read up on the 60DC Challenge hubs written.

      My friend Wavegirl22 is one of the people who took part. I do not know when Sunforged is going to do another challenge, but that does not mean you couldn't undertake the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge, especially with a good plan of attack.

      I'm sure and have faith your ability to learn, so I figure that you could undertake a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge and read Sunforged's hubs on the previous 60DC Challenge. I know Sunforged does have several threads in the forums dedicated to the 60DC Challenge, if you want to search for those.

      But, that's about it. smile

          To support your writing habits and be honest? You are asking too much!
          No, just kidding. I think if you do not have dependants like I do, you can take any job, even min. wage and survive on it. As long as you have time to do what you like. For me it is dilemma always. I like to write, I have plenty ideas, but never enough time to do anything I like. If you live in US, you can probably find some work at home (real, not scam) .

      One of the problems is I cannot sign up for Amazon because I live in Colorado. This really sucks because I write about Literacy and Literature. Amazon would be a perfect compliment to my hubs. I really hope they change that soon.
