    What is the purpose of putting so much effort into compositions with few views and no income?

    That is the reason I am strongly considering leaving hubpages for good, even though I enjoyed the platform.  I almost feel like I am being "used," for no good reason at all.  I am sad.  Any consolation?

    I started  years ago and gave up, didn't work on it at all and then noticed I got paid through PayPal and some of my hubs we're seeing a lot.of traffic so I started writing again,its a slow building process,but I also enjoy writing for fun.Its not The best paying Job in the.world but I can stay home with my kids and still work.

      Maybe we should petition for higher pay!  They make a lot of money off advertising on our hubs...if worse comes to worse, let's get together and approach Godfather Googe!  Maybe there's something illegal about that!

    I learned pretty early on that I was never gonna make a ton of money here so I decided not to make myself nuts about it. I treat my Hubbing as a hobby/distraction ... any money I make from it is gravy.

      Anything creative, if effort is put into it, should not be just considered a hobby/distraction...these hubs demand a lot of work and thought ... but I understand what you're saying.  I was feeling the same way at first until I realized how much work.

    The hope of generating passive income for years from the ads that readers click on, slowly adding up to real spending money
