    I know it takes time, but can a talented and hard working writer make a good living 'hubbing'

    A lot of people question how much money can be made here. The most I have heard of any writer making is about $1000 a month. That's a lot of money for online writing. In some countries that would be a living. Where I live that pays rent and nothing more. So, it would depend on how much you have to make as well as how much you have to put into it.

    As someone who has been writing online in a lot of different ways for some time now I suggest you diversify what all you do to make money and where all you do it at.

    Good Luck!

    It's highly unlikely, but hard work and talent applied at Hub Pages can supplement the equivalent income of a part time job (around 20hrs a week). So, if you had another part time job you could make a decent living with both sources of income.

    Theoretically, it is possible.
    As you have pointed out it would take time. How much time is largely dependent on how much effort you apply to creating monetized hubs. Because Hubpages allow several ways of earning income particularly promoting affiliate or better still, your own products, you can in time make a substantial income.
    The big sticking point is you need visitors and lots of them willing to click adds or buy things you promote. Creating hubs about your passion for brass rubbing might fascinate you but not necessarily the rest of the world. However, creating hubs about hair loss for example and promoting affiliate hair loss products would have more of an audience.
    The simple formula is - Find a hungry audience and give them something to feed on. It's a well known marketing strategy and it works. Promote something people want and are willing to pay for, rinse and repeat.

    It depends:  The only people that have a chance are those with:

    1) LOTS of Hubs (100 absolute minimum, many more better).

    2) Hubs are commercial (product or money making related).

    3) Hubs have many links from outside HubPages.

    See my profile and look for the Courtney link for more details.

    In my limited experience (6 weeks here but more working online) I'd say a qualified "yes". You have to learn how to choose keyword themed hubs that make money and that means finding out how much related keywords pay before you build the hub.

    I think you'll also have to learn how to connect with outside affiliate programs that may have valuable products or services for your readers. I've seen some here promote Clickbank, Commission Junction, etc.to create an extra income stream in the process that you don't hear about in the "Hub Success stories".

    If you read the Hub Pages official blog, you'll see that your writing can attract freelance work and even full time employment opportunities.
