Freelance writing or HubPages?
I know you want to say both. But if you had to pick one or the other, would you (A) do paid freelance writing for clients or (B) write full time on HubPages and earn revenue share.
For long term I go for hubpages, small but steady income
You have more control over freelance writing, but I would still do both.
If I had to choose between both and allocate by ratio of energy, then I would go 20% HubPages and 80% freelance writing. In the long run your work may pay off better with freelance writing.
That's my 2 cents.
I'd love to freelance, work as a ghostwriter on a biography or a non-fiction.
I guess the answer would always depend upon how much one is getting paid per article with freelance writing.
The great thing about hubpages or other websites that run Asense, and other advertising adverts on site is that an article here could be making you money five years from now, and while you sleep at night.
Of course there are certain topics that aren't going to do well on a site like Hubpages - anything to do with current news is most often worthless monetarily before it's even published, etc.
When you say "write full time on HubPages" I assume you really mean to make a full 40-hour work week out of it. Based on that interpretation and comparing to a full time job of freelancing for clients, I'd say it's a no-branner. The answer is to write full time on HubPages. Why? Because writing for clients will bring in only a one-time payment per project. But publishing on the web grows as prior work continues to generate revenue.
This is only understood if one considers the fact that "full time" means making a true business out of it. That involves research for articles, studying SEO, keeping up to date with rules and changes, and making themselves part of the community.
I've always thought of using sites like hub pages to be a form of freelancing .
people who visit your articles are like potential clients, and your followers are like clients.

Just wondering. Has anyone left their day job and concentrated instead on freelance writing? I'd be very much interested to learn how it went. Thanks!

I see a lot of advice from hubpage members on hubs, questions, and forum posts and the common advice seems to be to write a lot of hubs. No problem. I am writing a decent amount of hubs on technology, nutrition, and...
