How do I get my first payment for my first article?
I'd love to know how soon I can start making money from writing.
You don't get paid by the article. Try clicking the Help like at the top of the page, and reading the site FAQ. There's a section on how earnings and payments work.
HP doesn't pay you for your articles. They give you a publishing platform, and you get royalties depending on how many people look at your article.
You have to have a Google Adsense acct. to monetize your Hubpages. If you don't have one you should keep publishing excellent hubs for a few weeks, and after you've got about a dozen you can apply for an acct., then optimize your Hubpages to start earning.
It takes time to build an audience and get consistent views. It took me almost a year to get my first payout of $50; but now 4 years in I make a consistent income of a few hundred a month, which is a nice passive income. Not everyone makes that, but if you write great hubs, advertise and draw an audience, it can happen. Some make more than me.

I'm new to HubPages, so give me a break if this is a terrible question. I nearly have 40 followers, and I have posted 15 hubs in 5-6 weeks. When do you start making the big bucks?
