I don't know if I can say I am, but I do look at Hubpages every day and respond to comments and questions and answers and the forums. And I also enjoy writing, the hubs but only when I think of something interesting or entertaining or informative. If I could come up with a hub every day I would.
I am. I make a living off of ghostwriting for websites needing textual assistance in content. I make pennies from hubpages. But the fact that I'm full time as a ghostwriter balances out. I'm not in need of $$$. Ghostwriting is very lucrative, but it's difficult to get a career out of it.
I am...I make my money through freelancing and am slowly getting the four affiliate sites I write for to earn a larger and larger portion of my earnings to free up my time a bit and make the earnings a little more stable. Occasionally I'll take on some transcription work to fill in with the times I don't feel creative enough to write, but about 95% of all my income comes from writing.
I am sure most are only part time writers...Most of us whom write full time like myself have many avenues of revenue. Some may blog, others write for flat rate articles, pitch articles to magazines (hard to break into but pays upwards of 1.00 per word) write for revenue sharing websites like HP etc. Try creating a hub on this topic and run a poll. Only then would you at least get a small scale idea on a full time, to part time ratio.
If one calls html coding and writing reports on Internet research findings writing, then yes, I'm a full time writer. If not, then I would say about 40% of my income comes from writing articles - for clients, for my own sites and for quite a few other sites.
I wouldn't say I am a complete full-time writer but I write everyday. In Hubs, Triond, Blogger and WordPress. I love writing and even though I have a day-time job, I still write and trying to make a living out of it.
Yes it is tough but I think end of the day, it is so fun to see that people actually read and appreciate what you write.

I think HubPages is just a terrific opportunity for writers to write and make connections within the HubPages community. However, I am concerned about the quality of some of the hubs I see. Even if the writing is fresh and lively, if the spelling, punctuation, or grammar are poor, then...

As per my expectation most of our hubbers are working part time here. During their spare time they write hubs but have you ever thought to post hubs full time and earn unlimited money ( because of your quality hubs) because here you do not have any boss to give you order.I do not have such plan yet...

Do any hubbers spend 40 hours a week (or more) writing and researching hubs? Does the effort pay off if the site is treated like a regular job?

produces: anxiety!C'mon, Hubpages! I've been a good boy. I've improved my hubs. I've been "awarded" a Level 2 Commentator (oh joy.) My personal story of near death and survival is consistently coming up TWICE (original hub and five year follow up) in Google search on page one out of over...

I usually work any where from 70 to 80 hours a week and rarely get a day off, but I find the time to write and keep up on hubpages. How many others work a...
