I just put together a profile to begin writing for HubPages. From here, do I just start blogging and will earnings come in or do I need to setup more to begin the earnings process? I have only ever blogged for websites that do direct deposit, so I do not know how this specific earning process works. If you could please explain this to me step-by-step if it is more specific than just writing and earning, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
Hi there, welcome to HubPages.
Firstly, this is not a blogging site. Not even close. Before you even think about earnings, find out what the site is about:
Start with the FAQ http://hubpages.com/faq/
Then browse the Learning Center: https://hubpageshelp.com
HubPages expects well-written, fully-formed, magazine-style articles of 800 - 1500 words. Images must be legal-to-use and appropriate.
Once you have written at least 10 approved and featured articles, you can apply for an Adsense account, if you haven't already got one. For a while, you'll earn pennies. Then as you become more accomplished your earnings will increase. It takes determination and stamina. HubPages is no easy-earnings site.
You'll probably want to start with this article for an overview of how earnings on HubPages work.
Like RaggedEdge says, HubPages is not a place to blog. It's a place to write long, informative, in-depth articles (called Hubs). Each one should be at least 800 words long, but you should aim for more if you really want to do well.
The Learning Centre has all the information but it's huge, and can be overwhelming for beginners. I have a few Hubs with basic information about how to Hub - you'll find them on the slider on my profile.

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense earnings, but now it's practically non-existent. I was earning a couple dollars...

Does a hubber have to earn a certain amount of money in order to be paid? If so, how do they get paid? Do they pay through PayPal, snail mail, or other venues?

When I signed up for HubPages, things were done differently. I may have signed up with an amazon ID, that is now defunct. I am wondering now, if the new way references the ID I signed up with; unfortunately I can see no way to check. Can someone provide me insight on this please?

The chart above (made easily with Excel: check the tools menu / analysis) gives the distribution of daily earnings. Most of days daily earnings is about 0.45.As you can see, it doesn't follow the famous Normal Law in probability ... which is normal : normal law is not obligatory in the real world

Do you more experienced Hubbers believe writing about controversial topics like politics hurts or help your page traffic? For example, if you disagree with someone's political Hub, will you not visit their other Hubs?

When I had my own Amazon ID, I always earned from links on my hubs. After I switched to the HP Amazon option, I no longer get clicks or purchases on my Amazon capsules. Is that because Amazon earnings now go to my general HP earnings each month, and they don't show as separate earnings? Thanks!
