I see from your profile that you have been on HubPages for five months.
From experience five months is about the time when a lot of people drop out of HubPages asking themselves this very question. I would say stick with it as one stream of income. You can write here or on several other websites. There is no rule saying you must ONLY write on HubPages.
If you feel that your work is not being read enough, consider looking at other areas where you could write.
I see you live in North Wales, but seem to write little about that area, being from Cheshire originally, I know there is a great deal of history, torist stuff that you might be able to write on. Or use the experience from your acting, to give hints to others as to how to find work in theatre or TV?
Hope this helps.
