    How does this whole making money for writing thing work?

    I am an okayish writer and I need some extra cash. a friend recommended that this sight pays for your writing things but I was not made aware of how that happens.  may someone please tell me the ropes of this site?

    If you are a dedicated writer and have a passion  for some subject, you can make money on Hubpages, but it probably won't be that much and it will take time to see any meaningful earnings. I have been on Hubpages almost six years, and did not see any real earnings until after my third year.  You will have to get an Ad Sense account first.  I would suggest that you check out the Learning Site on HP.  Good luck.

      Thank you. My guess is that this is probably not the place for me then. I'm not dedicated just creative and a little to impulsive. Any tips maybe?

    Badly.  Don't quit your day job - but don't stop writing either.  Good luck!

    You're about five years too late to make a decent income from writing for fun.   That all stopped in around 2011.   You can still make pin money from casual writing, but if you want to make a decent income writing online, you have to treat it like a real job.  And it will take a year or two before the money starts coming in.

    You put up articles and compete with all the other content on the internet. If people visit the article and you have Google Adsense on the hubs, Hubpages splits the ad revenue with you.
    If you have affiliate links to other sites, you can make money from the referrals.

    I would keep writing if it's what you love to do. I just added adsense to my hub articles and anticipate not making any money for awhile, but I've written content on other writing websites. Helium used to pay a little money when the site was still in existence. Sometimes, other markets would buy my article and pay extra. You never know where you might earn extra money from. The more productive you are the better.
