    Hi Sally

    Ill answer the question as best I can and answer all your questions individually.

    How much have you made from all this?
    Overall I have made around 150euro. That is split 50%/50% between adsense and amazon.
    This may not sound like much but my earnings have increased dramatically each month. The idea is that one day after a lot of writing Ill be earning a steady monthly income. However, I never expect it to be my only form of income.

    Is it really worth it?
    If your speaking in purely monetary terms its definitely not.If you think if it as a place to learn as well as earn a little then it is worth it.
    I try to think of it as place to learn about SEO,web design, adsense and improving my writing skills. I also have other websites away from hubpages that I earn a little from. I am also planning on studying a masters in ebusiness, this website a good training ground for bigger things.

    I hope that explains it. Nearly everybody has a different reason for being here. Some are here purely for the money, some just want their work read others are using it as a way to get people to visit their site and buy a product. Im here to learn and earn at the same time.

    To some people it is worth the amount of work, and the returns for some are quite substantial.  I am able to pay my rent with my Hubs earnings, and I don't consider the work to be especially difficult.

    About $10,000 a year and up from Adsense, much more from consulting opportunities.

    Not here; I just started here. 

    Yes, it is definitely worth it.

    It is worth it if you consistently write enough hubs each month and social bookmark and be active on here. The thing is it make take a while to make 100s a month, but once you get there its basically autopilot money. Thats how I view it to some degree. I have jsut recently returned at the beginning of june cause I did not realize i made some money.

    I noticed some days i make 0.00 while other days i seen i got 3 clicks and made 2.50 cents with only 3 clicks! Page impressions help a little, but some clicks can make quite a lot. Now imagine if you can tune your adsense to be making 5-10 day. Possibly 300$ a month where you make money when your sleeping an etc.

    You just need to set a foundation for it. Aim to try and make 1 a day then maybe 2,3,4,5, and so on.... Some days will be better than others you just have to try and think of an average.

    Yes, it's definitely worth all the work! That said, I also came to Hubpages having a fairly good idea what I was doing in marketing and such, and have been learning a LOT more since then. With my four different writing sites and freelance work I made about $15,000 last year (but had a couple of months where I did next to no work), and am on track for about $20,000 this year unless my new efforts pay off much better than expected. The median income in this area is about $17,000, and that's averaging quite a few minimum wage jobs with some REALLY high-paying jobs in medicine, methane, coal, and oil. For someone like me who doesn't have any locally-marketable skills and have never been to college, that's pretty darn good. Hubpages is currently hovering around 10%-15% of my yearly earnings, but I've also just stopped being lazy and procrastinating and have started putting some of my newer knowledge to work on old hubs, which so far has jumped hits, clicks, and sales a substantial percentage and continues to rise.
