What is your definition of passive income?


I have seen a few Hubs recently refer to earning passive income from doing things, including writing Hubs. To me, passive income is what your get for doing little or nothing such as dividends from a stock or interest on a savings account. It is your money working for you instead of you working. Rent and royalties are passive income but is ad revenue royalties for your writing? I think people are confusing passive income with self-employment income (income you get for being in business for your self). I see Hubpages as self-employment in the advertising business rather than passive income.
