        How many do you need? to make, let's say $1,000.

          That depends on the quality off the hubs, and the marketing efforts you put in to them.

      ...soon you can take the bus across your state!...maybe make it to Canada to say hi to me, if you check yourself into luggage!...we could listen to some of those 'trucker' tunes you like!

      ...I guess if you are trying to make money...any generation of money is good!..that's what it is about for some.

      I was tending bar in 1989 and a VERY wealthy young man (private jet wealth) told me how he got so rich so young-his answer? "when you play with dollars, you make dollars, when you start to play with thousands, you'll make thousands, and whem you beging to play with millions, you will make millions"! I liked having a formula, but did nto even have a thusand saved-8 years later an opportunity appeared for me to make $1,000 a sale in home business-i still did not have the grand saved, but that did not stop me from getting one and becoming a millionaire two years later-that was also not my last million made-many more came helping others to do the same thing i did. The formula definitely works! If you want what rich people have, you MUST do what they do-simple actually. Prosperous regards, DMF

    Everything begins with one small step. Congrats on your first steps. I just checked my adsense from when I started and I was only making cents per month. They have increased a little.

    That is awesome...It is also scary to know that you can do it - and that you have the skills and talent to continue doing it.  The income will come faster over the long run.

      sarah - it is not just simply writing hubs. If that was the model everyone would be independently wealthy and hub pages would be flooded with a lot of words about nothing.

      You must have quality original content on things people want to read about. If you can capture their attention you can get the opportunity to get them to click on your article's ads. Then and only then will you begin to see the money collect.

    The great thing about it is those little "payoffs" can really start to motivate you to write new hubs. It has a way of drawing you in....

    This is fantastic Sara!  It is what you make it.  I didn’t sign up for AdSense until about my 3rd month on HubPages.  I had about 50 hubs, and made about $10 that first month with AdSense.  Now I have almost 200 hubs, and missed $100 in AdSense for July by less than $1.

    Fellow Hubbers, your attention please.  I just received a check from in the amount of $0.30, for what, I have no idea. I dare not cash it, for they may recall the check and it will cost me $0.44 to send it back. I am not very good at higher math, but I have a feeling that I will end up loosing money.
