And If So; How many subjects will be available by the end of the year?
Possibly, but there are a lot of people that will try the survey route instead. There are a lot of those paid survey sites out there.
Attending surveys will not help in making much money. They have to start their own businesses. Writing from home is not possible for everyone.
So you believe there will be a higher dependancy on lower grade income streams?
Most people have no idea how hard it is to make a living online and how much you have to know, and how much new stuff you have to learn each day. It isn't for the faint-hearted.
Best we keep that secret to ourselves Nelle?
Will there be any good writing subjects left by 2010?
true indeed.i haven't earned a penny by writing
No, they will not and I will tell you why. Most people have been told making money online is a scam. Most will tell you they have tried with a blog and failed. The fact is its true, they did fail, and after failing once the human mindset is "F-This!". With that being said, most will never try again.
Also, most people are afraid to write online do to what they know, or think they know, or how they can convey to you what there trying to say. If everyone could do what I can, then there wouldn't be any need for what I can do now would there be? Always have to remember, to 85% of computer owners, they have them for play and research, email and aim, and thats what there computers are made to do.
Earning money online or elsewhere require only two basic things.
Innovative idea and persistence.Sounds very simple but difficult to acquire and practice.
I've imagined this scenario: More and more people will want to write online, but that could mean that writing sites get inundated with more and more less-than-skilled material - which could potentially mean they have to try to entice skilled writers to want to write for their site by offering something more. Of course, skilled writers would have to compete more too. I can see how people looking for writers may then start sorting out who can write grammatically correct material and who can, for example, write really great marketing copy.
It seems there are more and more sites that require an application and writing samples, that approve material before it's published, but that offer better pay (and payment schedules) than have been offered in the past. What I've pictured potentially happening is that more "casual" writers may end up more on social sites, while those whose aim it is produce really high-quality, professional, material will be those who write for writing, rather than social, sites. Then again, I know a lot of people who'd rather go starve to death than write; so people like that aren't going to be a problem to online writers.
What happens with blogs is a-whole-nother thing (note my "proper" grammar there?). I'd think there will always be room for more good blogs. Who knows, though - maybe some places will start charging for blog space if too many people start blogs that don't get traffic?
Nice comments, thank you Lisa. There does seem to be a certain amount of predictability on this I guess. Unemployment figures worldwide vary of course and from the online writing perspective; is only one factor that can have a bearing on our efforts.
Bottomline though would still be quality content, I'm sure.
yes US unemployment hits above 10% and will be expected to rise more in near future.
I don't know about people, how they will manage but in forex trading, unemployment data is certainly an important fundamental element.
This thread wasn't started to help you promote your forex trading kkavya. (which I wish you all the best with )
As you have stated: You clearly Don't Know about People!
Here's another statement you made on your site: "There is no way to show overconfidence on what you have."
For wisdom like this; I would have thought your 140 IQ might have provided you something intelligent to contribute! Heaven help us... at your age, your grey matter is only partially developed.
As you are a budding Squillionaire let me offer you the best advice (for free) that will help you get to your goals!
"Take the time to understand people mate!"
Hey , i first told everybody here that there is earning in forex which can help many of them in this harsh time but they simply gone mad at me.
Also, Grey matter has nothing to do with IQ, i learned simple algebric linear equations at age of '5' and mastered Newton's law of motion and gravitation and mechanics at age of 15. So, Grey matter has nothing to do with IQ.
I never showed overconfidence here.
Many will try, discover it's not quick cash, and will walk away. Those who can write are typically already doing it because they have been told by someone they have a talent for doing it.
If anything, I suspect you will see more people moving in together and trying to make odds meet through temporary jobs.
I can add, my hubby is an excellent technical writer and I think has loads of "how to" type articles in him, but he would never write online, even being unemployed.
Hope you're hanging in there
How can we get him to impart his knowledge into something that will improve his situation?
I don't think we'll ever get him to impart his knowledge. Its just not his thing. I'm having a hard enough time getting him to sit down & write out the descriptions for his vases so I can put them on Ebay & Etsy!
Could you email me some details on his creations Jane? I have something in the new year which may help him directly.
Jane why won't he write online? He doesn't have to use his real name if that's an issue? I don't get it.
Hope things start looking up for your family. Unemployment is a tough mental challenge in addition to the financial challenges. I hope you'll be able to draw strength from other Hubbers out there.
Hope you don't mind my putting my two cents in.
I just realized the difference in motivation that we're discussing here. I'm basically into affiliate marketing and write sales copy to make my living online. I've never tried to make a living off of creative writing or article writing. I would think that that is a much more difficult endeavor, with even a much lower success rate. That's probably why I've never thought of focusing on adsense as a primary source of income. It seems the article writers depend on that more. Although maybe I'm wrong.
Lucky You're not a fish Mate.... You are too quick to bite and as such, would have been Eaten along time ago
Having just a wee bit of knowledge of financial markets (gained from several years consulting).. Entering such markets at a time when one can Not Afford to Loose working Capital.. Is Not the Smartest Thing in the world to do!!
The reference to 'Grey Matter' was an ambigious one.. though clearly moot if you are unable to see that you could have improved your presentation.
Once again I would add: As you are a budding Squillionaire let me offer you the best advice (for free) that will help you get to your goals!
"Take the time to understand people mate!"
Yes forex is not everybody's cup of tea, but there are Demo accounts where u r given virtual money to trade with.
I never concentrated on how i presented it as i don't care, atleast ur understanding what i am saying.
I am good in Mathematics and Numerical part not in social studies or as a writer, so i don't care if somebody liked it or not on how i presented it.
I'm sure more will try, when there are six people applying for every job, people are going to be trying whatever they can.
although, I just found out while reading some hub comments concerning our president, that if we don't watch fox news, we don't really know what's going on at the capitol.
I'm glad I had swallowed my drink, because these people are serious in their lopsided beliefs that fox news actually presents unbiased news.
That's an interesting observation rebekahELLE... perhaps with the changing media scene Fox have secured a 20 year contract to speak on behalf of the nation
These are interesting times worldwide and guarranteed to morph beyond how we see it now.... better start writing a 1000 more hubs

What keeps you using Hubpages over other similar sites?I have seen a lot of people with concerns about Hubpages in one form or another, but I wonder what inspires people to stick with it.

Will they still be allowed to continue writing for the niche sites or will this site be diluted as our best writers and their work leave for a better deal?

Just curious. I did meet someone who used to make a living writing on Squidoo before they made some changes. I know some people on Bubblews who live in some "third world" countries that make enough on there to survive as well. It seems reasonable to me that there are at least a few...
