    Hubpages actually is my occupation, but I'm not really earning anything just yet.  I'm very close to getting my first Google Check though, and I've learned a massive amount of information about how the internet works from spending so much time here on hubpages.

    Now, I know for a fact that I could have already hit several Google payouts, but I choose to write what I want to write rather than what I know will make me money.  I can and will be writing more commercial and profitable hubs; but I've mostly got things to talk about that are non product related.  I CAN hope that these types of things earn me recognition in other markets, but that's a LONG shot that I'm willing to take, I've got the time and freedom to do that.

    Building enough product or problem/solution based hubs, the ones that really will make you some money, takes time; and lots of learning and promotion.  There are several people that make enough here to not have to seek outside work, but it's not something that will build up for anyone in the course of a few months; at least not unless they really know some Jedi mind internet tricks that I'm yet to become aware of.

    I think it is a good idea to combine several things together. Examples are have a few websites, blogs, do links on Xomba and write for other sites too.

    It can be a nice side income if you do it well but only very few people make enough money online to pay their bills and live their life. It takes a lot of time and effort to start making enough money.

    However, many years down the road you can start creating your own websites to earn more and more passive income. You can make good money online but it takes a while before you're really good at it (which is needed if you wish to live from it).

    If you plan on writing that much then you should consider starting your own website so that you will control and own it all instead of someone else.

    Yes it can, and yes I do... But for the majority of people on the site they don't have the focus or drive to work at making Hubs, and many just don't have the writing skills necessary to produce Hubs of high enough quality to generate strong earnings.

    To live from making Hubs takes as much work as any other day job, but it does not pay off as quickly as conventional employment that gives you a steady paycheck every few weeks.

    I have made hubs my occupation as well. It is not a full second income for me, however with a few other sites I write for it does enough so I can stay home and take care of my baby! So I Am Happy with it!
