    How old are you?  I'm curious about the average age of Hubbers.

    At age 50, I'm curious about the average age of the writers on HubPages.  Can HubPages and sites like it be a good way to supplement retirement incomes?

    Old enough to know better, too young to care.

    But seriously, I'll be 43 next month.

    No idea if HP can supplement retirement income. Judging from my "earnings" thus far on this site, I'd say it's not very likely....

    I am 61. I don't believe Hubpages is an effective way to supplement income. I think of it more as a hobby that may or may not get a dollar or two coming in.

      That's really how I think of it, too. Even writing fulltime and answering questions for HP, I doubt the "average" hubber could make more than a hundred bucks a month or so. I look at it as a tiny reward for a hobby, like duffsmom does.

    I'm 29. I make only about what would average $300 a year on HP with almost no time spent writing in the last few months.

    I'll be 43 in mid-June. Except as pin-money, I don't think HubPages would be a good way to supplement retirement income, but perhaps that's just my experience.

      What is pin money?

      LOL It's the money that, in years gone past, women would save up from the grocery bills and other errands and pin into her bra for a little special treat, like ice cream  or movie tickets. Dimes and dollars scrimped and saved in secret.

    I'm now 51 - yikes!!! It's scary, I often wonder where the years went?

    I'm 28 and, so far, the income from HubPages is not enough to live off of. One must be incredibly prolific on here to make something significant, and I'm splitting my time between this, a job, and trying to publish a novel. So, I might not be the best example. I tend to think of payouts as extra money that can either be used to pay down debt or buy myself something I normally wouldn't.

    I am 45 and feeling better than ever! wink I would love to retire now! HubPages brings some good income, but not so good for others. I write because I love it, and it brings me exposure for my business. I use to write my own articles on my websites, but I'm hoping that my writing will reach a broader range of folks on HubPages since it has far better traffic ranking.

    I'm 53, and I'm not expecting to be making anything from HubPages. I'm sure if you put enough time into HP, you could earn a little bit and supplement existing retirement income, but I don't think a person could actually support themselves with it. I could be wrong, though!

    38 ;-) And, no, for me, anyway, it would not be a good way to supplement my retirement income but that may because I have such a low hub score right now and have only been here 11 days.

    I'm 29. Maybe if I write for the next thirty years, this will help supplement my retirement... wink

    Seriously, though, HubPages (and online publishing in general) could be a way to supplement retirement income, but it's not easy. It kind of depends on your goals. Making a full time living would be extremely hard, but making a couple hundred bucks a month is much more reasonable.

    I don't even have the option of taking my pension as a teacher for another 26 years, so I've got a lot of time to think about it.

    I am now 29... The same answer I don't think HP can supplement retirement incomes.

    30..until July.

    BUT - growing old is complusory, growing up is optional - so, I keep myself young by having fun!..

    I'm 25, the youngest of all who answered this question for now smile

    Years doesn't matter, it's important how you feel - keeping your inner child
