How To Write Content Online
Monetizing Hubs in the Begnning
First, I love HubPages.
I can, and do write for hours at a time for the sheer joy of writing. However I found myself struggling with aspects other than the writing when I first began writing on the HubPages site. Things like HubPages Earning Program, AdSense, Google, eBay and other means to monetize my account were very intimidating. Maybe I just wasn't getting it? How the heck does a Hubber gain all of the information and angles needed to get paid? I personally was more apt to spend my time finger dancing across my keyboard then I was searching for information regarding the 'how to' of making a buck writing online.
Am I lazy or just an artist?
I asked myself , "Am I lazy or just an artist?" Or are these synonyms for each other? Looking at things like I did, my brain wanted to go to one page that had a checklist of options to check or not to check. I was willing to fill in information windows and the likes, but it really was way to intimidating when I had to go from page to page, linking to this and to that, enter the URL information and all of the things I had no understanding for. It just seemed that if someone had very limited computer skills and needed to write, but also wanted to make a few shekels while doing so, that a check list would be available? I simply wanted to fill in 'yes' or 'no' and when done, KAZAM!! I would have monetize my account and all would have been good in online writing land.
What I found was this; it takes a little more then good writing to make a few dollars writing online articles.

Get Down To Some Real Facts
The truth is that true writers are artistic. We have a kind of "in our heads" approach to the world. We exude intellect (in most cases) and share needed data with the masses. Online writers:
- research so others don't have to
- tell stories so readers can imagine
- they reach inside themselves to recall deep-felt experiences so others can also feel
It is in our make-up and is usually what the writer does best. Why not make a little money at it, or even loads? Online writers deserve the reward for creating good quality work.

Some Hubs have made me laugh, tear-up, and a few have even made me angry. All this emotion brought out by reading good quality content within many of the articles online. I have been truly amazed by this HubPages writer's community. This is truly the top of the heap when it comes to talented people compared to some other factory style writing sites. Many of the great writers here on HubPages deserve to get paid for their words; because theirs are the articles that will pay-off in the long run—or more accurately, the long tail—for the HubPages site. They have more to offer the company as a whole and thus, should make money for their online writing.
