    I have been writing on hubpages for 6 weeks and have 14 hubs.  I have tried google which I have made absolutely nothing.  I can't use Amazon because NC residents can't use this.  Ebay was turned down. And Kontera is not working either.  I love to write and I love to share my thoughts with the world.  I also wanted to make some money along the way.  Right now I am extremely discourages.  I have sought after other sites such as clickbank which has brought me nothing.  I do not understand all the tech knowledge that I need and the tutorials do not help at all.
    I jsut really wish someone could please help me so I can continue to write and enjoy what I am doing.  I don't have as much time as most because I am working, but I have worked harder on this than I would a full time job and nothing has happened.  I joined this site becasue it was said to be one of the best for writing and making money. there are some extrmemly rude people in some of the question and answer forums and this has not been pleasant.  I just need some help.

      I recommend that you keep writing about what you enjoy. 

      As far as learning the ins and outs of all the technical stuff.  You'll learn it as you go. 

      Anyway, since you are unable to sign up for Amazon, you could still make money from it with (just a thought), via their own account.  For those that can't sign up for affiliate accounts, Squidoo is a great way to go. It's more complex, in a way, but you can keep it as simple as you want.  Make sure to take part in their forum.  Many of us here are also over there.

          Wait it out, you are still in the baby stages of the game. You need more hubs and time, soon you will start seeing profits. Lots of people have many hubs and isn't seeing much a return as yet, hang in there! smile

      At six weeks and just about a dozen Hubs, you are just barely beginning.  Writing on the internet can be profitable, but it takes time and as much work as any job.  You sound as though you have extremely unrealistic expectations of how this works.

      Having been with this site since its inception, I have to say that on average it takes about a year and 100 Hubs for most people to start seeing some sort of consistent financial return.  Some people get strong financial results sooner, but those people tend to be very experienced salespersons or web marketers who are using HubPages to expand their internet strategies.  And to become very profitable takes longer, and even more content.

      In a more practical vein, religion is one of the lowest earning topics that can be written about.  You're going to have to find something you love to write about that's more profitable and less prophet-able.

      I have an eBook program that is very easy and satisfying to use.
      I have about 4 hubs I would just as soon forget about.  I have yet
      to finish one except to publish it and leave.  This is not much
      help to you.   This isn't writing, it is arranging "keywords"

    Dian, I can understand your disappointment.

    However, it is too early and you probably have too few hubs to be earning much.  There are many hubbers that have written of their early experience (I am one of them) - I suggest that you look around and find out what others have experienced early on.

    At 6 weeks I think I had earned perhaps $1, but had about 45 hubs to do it with.  Earning money on HP is not particularly easy (at least for a newbie to online writing)and it is not quick, but it can be done and those earnings can be substantial.

    Don't give up on it - keep working.  If you don't you will wish you had.

    That's frustrating, I can sympathize with that difficulty, and I would feel that way, too.

    I'm a beginner as well but I find that the best thing to do is focus entirely on writing.  Sometimes I'll read something here and there about SEO optimization.  But even if I become a master of that and am able to draw traffic to my hubs, it won't matter if I don't produce a quantity of high quality content (the quality of my content is questionable).

    Keep writing, don't look back, and plug away anytime an idea comes up.  Refine those ideas over time, and the rest seems to be falling in place on my end.  I hope the same happens for you, too!

    Dian'swords4u, I am fairly new here myself. I came on board 3 weeks after you. I have been here only 3 weeks but have posted 55 hubs. I am learning as I go along and when I see something on a particular hub I e-mail that person and ask them about it. Sometimes people can be rude through this Forum, and I ask a question here only when I have exhausted all other possibilities.

    I get frustrated too. For instance, yesterday I had no earnings, but today there was $3.95 in my account from Google, and I haven't received anything from Amazon or Kontera as of yet.

    Treasuresofheaven has a nice article about tidying up your hubs. She gives some good advice that I followed. I go back to older hubs and give them a fresh coat of paint and I soon see the red arrows going up.

    Additionally, use the Title Tuner. I used it today and included just one suggested new word in my title and that gave me another red arrow.

    I have begun to do companion articles; that is, if I have an article that is excessively long I split it up into two separate hubs and use the group feature so people can click on the companion article after they read the first one.

    Don't rely solely on Hubbers for your traffic. I pull a lot of traffic from my friends on Facebook.

    I e-mailed you about your pictures not matching your subject, and I noticed you changed them. I checked out your recent hubs and you only have pictures, no Amazon products; so you are not giving people anything to click on. But then you said you couldn't sign up for Amazon anyway. To me they look like something is missing with no products.

    Someone told me not to put a picture at the top under the title so that ads could easily be seen there. I took that advice, and it might have helped.

    I don't know much, but feel to e-mail me and I'll try to pass on to you what I have discovered.

    Let's not become discouraged. If it can be done, let's do it!

    My advice would be to write on stuff you like and on stuff in which you are skilled. For example, if you have cooking skills, write all the good things and in the end gave your phone number or address and I am sure people will contact you to learn more about cooking that way u can make more money.
    I have wrote an article about "How to clear entrance exams", now I have about 15 students which are learning the same stuff from me personally n I am making a good income.

    Also, If you are good in writing then somebody can also learn "how to develop writing skills" from you online. So, earning money is not a hard task, just sharp your skills n money will come.

    yogeshsingh, I would think twice about advising someone to give their telephone number and address at the end of an article.
