I get really tired of writing a well-thought-out, researched article for $3, $4 or $5. It makes me feel unimportant. I have something important to say! LOL!
So I'm sticking with Hub and seeing if I can direct more traffic to my HUB site. Besides the Hubbers are the most friendly and helpful of all the groups on line.
Thank you so much for your comment. I was wondering if I was the only one to feel that way. All of the research and time to write quality articles for $3 a pop. If I was a prolific writer, I could see writing 20 articles a week as a good deal. But then, my HubPages, my blogs and my web sites would have to take a back seat. And, I will be writing for someone else's passive income. I am so glad my decision to stay here is supported. Now I don't feel so bad.
Stick with it Jenna, it's worth it. Creating value as a writer is perhaps the most important long-term decision. Writing for 5$ will bury you -- even if you could use the quick buck.
I don't think it ought to be a matter of feeling "unimportant", but a lot of people aren't willing to work at that kind of pay rate. Over the long term, the pay for something like a Hub can add up to far more (and a far better "hourly rate") than getting a few dollars once for a 500-word or 700-word thing does. It's passive income. The writing-articles thing is not. Big difference.
I agree with Lisa, however, I have to write a few up front payment articles so I can work on my hubs and wait for earnings long-term.
I think, with content writing, it pays to diversify a bit. Even when you hit a good profit center you never know how long it will last. So it pays to cultivate some alternatives.

I just left a thread where the main complaint was that squidoo writers were going to bring the quality down. But what surprises me is not the complaining but the lack of analysis of the big picture. I started on...
