Keep things in perspective when gauging your success, after about 20 quality hubs you will see it's possible to make $50 or more a month here with some consistent effort.
The hubs that are performing the best for me are product reviews of sorts on certain topics that I have written a handful of other hubs about. Generally I write about Lawn Care, Golf, and Website reviews on Hubpages, these do the best. The commentary about society and other sociological hubs don't do as well for me. I have three blogs, so that's where I write those on mostly.
Put some effort into your hubs and they will continue to get you views over time. Welcome as well.
