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.

I am a soon-to-be mom, and I am terrified.I want to stay at home, but with the economy the way it is, I just don't see how it's possible. My husband and I are both soldiers -- he is active duty, and I recently switched from active duty to the reserves (I didn't want to be deployed to Iraq and have...

Another hubber, DrMark1961 asked if Hubbing could be a full time job, which got my attention. I have always wanted to be a full time writer, and while I know that Hubpages is not going to give me a hefty pay out what with the google adsense and all that other malarkey taking chunks out (as other...

I´ve spend some time here at hubpages reading about writing jobs, and many of them talk about getafreelancer, as a good site, but i´m not sure how it works, do you have to be a genius writer to make some money there or can it be done by someone like me, I know that getting to the level of...

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've just introduced myself on a separate thread and I hope it's okay to jump in with a question. I've been an at-home parent for 13 years and am just re-entering the world of paid employment. When I thought about what it is that I really, really want to do, I realised that I want to write. I won...
