      Badly written 71 and 111 word hubs won't get you anywhere or make you anything.

    You'd be better off to consider it a hobby or avocation that might become supplementary income.

    As time goes by you can decide if it is a job, while you are learning how to make it better, and learning to enjoy the experience.

    In other words, don't quit your day job, yet. It takes dedication and long hours of work to make it pay.

    If you want to make any money your hubs will have to be much longer than your first one. Strive for at least 400 words in each hub.

    Listen to Rochelle and Uninvited.. they've been here a while.  It takes time for hubs to mature and earn money.  I didn't earn a cent on my first month, but have been earning consistently after.. not much but consistent.  Plus HP has its own ads program that will be fully rolling by June.  First things first, write more hubs. The more hubs you have, the higher the chances of you earning more money.  Look at the work of hubbers with high scores, like Rochelle and Uninvited.. most of them have been earning big monthly paychecks.  I've only been here five months and yet to reach payout.  If things continue to go well, I should reach out in 2-3 months.  Welcome to Hubpages and I wish all the best.

      Thank you Rosie... Though I think my advice is good in general, I am not a big earner, and haven't put out the required effort to be one though i know it is possible. 

      I started out with a portfolio of written and a few published articles and commentaries. Some of them had been in print (not on the net), but I still owned the rights to republish.

      My original thought was to post them here and if I earned enough to buy a coffee, it would be gravy. (That doesn't sound good to sip, but you know what I mean.)

      After that, I found that I enjoyed the feedback and interaction, so I  continued-- even writing original articles.  So you see, my motivation was not earning a lot of money. My expectations have been fulfilled.

      Nevertheless, after a good long while things started perking up a bit (not just the coffee) and I started learning how to make my hubs a bit more profitable.

      There are a lot of things you can do, but I haven't done most of them. In fact I haven't finished a new hub in a while, though I have some in progress.  I am enjoying passive, though not excessive, income.

        You're welcome, Rochelle.  I'm glad to hear that things have perked up a bit with you, and not just the coffee. smile  I'm enjoying my stay here in HP so far.  I'm here to earn extra bucks, if I could.  I am thrilled to see a few cents turned into a dollar.. it's like watching a baby grow.  This is very exciting for me, as I am not really a writer.  I just started blogging three years ago and found that I enjoy writing.  I stumbled upon HP, so here I am.

    I agree with what the others have already said.  It takes time but writing hubs can eventually pay some money.  Write more; learn the mechanics of making them better and be patient.  Best wishes!
