Time, effort and hard work

Updated on May 10, 2010

Time, effort and hard work

Does working online really work? Can you make a living from being online? You see Ad’s claiming that you to could earn $xxxxx a month, but could you really do so?

After being on the internet for a good number of years and looking for that all-important moneymaking internet dream I often wonder. For being online writing on Hubpages and RedGage its not easy. You do really have to put the time and effort into writing and working hard. After that you need to get your work seen so you can earn something from doing so at least. It’s not what that dream is all about and I would guess many people who first could to Hubpages or any other website to write, in the hopes of making some money from writing, working online. Think that if I were write a few Hubs I will make a pile of money and live happy ever after, if only that were true we would all be laughing going to the bank.

No working online can and most is hard work spending long hours writing your work, working putting your idea’s down on paper as so to speak. Writing and then rewriting it then editing it until you feel it seems right and just what you want to be published to the internet. Only after you’ve gotten your work published to the internet your work will you start to earn. People need to see you work so you can and hopefully get paid for your many hours on sitting in front of your laptop writing away at you dream masterpiece. The masterpiece that will, all one hopes will be the one that will make you rich.

Getting people to see your work

To me this is or seems to be the hardest part of being online, getting people or traffic as it’s know to view and see you work. Publicizing your work getting people to view what you have written and in hopes that someone somewhere in the world will click that all-important Google ad’s so we get paid for our hard work.

Once written and published to the internet you should at some point start to earn from your hard efforts. It may not be straight away it may take a few days or a few weeks until you start to see some earning for your effort. Don’t forget when your work is published online, the internet is open 24 hours a day seven days a week. The Internet never rest, it can be the biggest moneymaking machine that as be made. There are millions upon millions of people who have internet access these days and still growing daily. Overtime more people could see your written work then you could imagine form all walks of life. I think sometimes we forget that there are millions upon millions of people with internet access who could view your work and hit that all-important Google Ad button so that you an I are paid.

Long-term plan

If only a few people see your work in a few weeks, think how many people could see your work in say 6 months or a year or 2. I believe that writing online is a long-term plan, were you will get paid over and over again as time goes on. It’s like writing a book or recording a hit song, people will be reading or listening to you work 30 years from now. Writing online to me is my pension plan, just think if you only wrote a few Hubs every few months, multiply that by years you’ll soon have hundred’s maybe thousands of Hubpages or pieces of work. Then start to think how many hundreds, thousands or maybe millions of people who will have seen your work overtime. You need to look at the bigger picture, you don’t just have a few friends around to see you work that you have just published to the net you have millions of people.

In short I personal don’t think there is any get rich quick idea’s out there or you can earn $xxxx amount of a month. It’s only time and working hard, smart building up work over time. It’s only then you may start to see $xxxx a month going into your account. You just have to stick it out, believe in yourself that this will work overtime. You just have to put the time and effort into that you are doing now. With the time and effort you will be paid well when it comes to retiring form it all in the not to near future one would hope.

Take care and have fun.

      A good Hub, I think that you are right it does take time, effort and hard work to be successful here on Hubpages in that respect making a living on the internet is no different to making a living in the real world.
