    What is the procedure to get paid for the blogs I write here on HubPages?

    I am damn excited with this type of freelance writing when I heard this from my friend. I would like to share my experiences through blog writing and would like to earn some out of it. Please help me understand the same. Thank you.

    Hi Arch;

    It's not actually a job, or blogging. It's an article platform, and you can get paid royalties depending on the kind of traffic your articles get.

    You would first have to write some high quality content. Then after a few months and after you get a good 20 or so articles up, you can apply for Google Adsense, and when you get that you can join the Hubpages Earning Program. If you go to 'My Earnings' it'll tell you how to do all this.

    It takes time to build up an audience, but once you earn $50 you'll get a payout. This can take time, but the more you build your content (and the better your content is), the more you market, etc., the better your chances of success.

    But don't expect a lot up front-- it can take months or even a year to hit that first $50 payout for many people. It took me a year to reach my first payout of $50; then about 4 months to reach the next $50 payout. It takes time usually to establish yourself (unless you get lucky and something you  write goes viral).

    I persisted, and really worked hard on providing good quality hubs for my niche, so now I make several hundred per month. Considering I have only written about 3 articles this year, it's been a nice little side income, like having a part-time job without having to work. But it takes time, patience and work to get there.

    It all starts with writing, so get some great hubs out and good luck to you.

    archan......Excitement is a good start, but there's a lot of work to be done.  The first thing you need to do is create your profile.  Very few people will read your work if you are completely anonymous.  Seek out the learning center and familiarize yourself with everything about this writer's site, TOS and how to create interesting & informational hubs.
    This is not considered a place for "blogging."   We write magazine type content.
    Get busy on creating your profile.  Read the profiles of several other writers here to get an idea of how to do this.  Add a profile picture.  Leaving the shadow stranger as your identity is unacceptable.
    It takes some time to establish your account.  Put your time and effort in to writing and reading and you'll progress in time.  Good Luck.

    There are freelancing sites where you can get paid to write articles, and I've been paid to ghostwrite other's blogs and Hubs.
    But you can't get that work THROUGH hubpages, only the platforms where they can hire you for the writing task, like fiverr, iwriter, amazon mturk.
