I am a Webmaster of 15 years and also a Field Investigator. I recently started started as Author for Hub Pages quite recently.

Writing articles can be a fun lucrative way to earn extra cash in your spare time. However if taken seriously and this is possible- Over time you could slowly or quickly depending upon how fast you can type and how well you can write retire or contribute to your current retirement plan writing articles online. In most cases when you produce and submit an article to a online publisher you are generally paid by the publisher once a month based upon the number of views of hits that your article receives. Therefore the topic you wish to write about should contain some type of popular interests to the general public to get more searchable views off the internet from end users when they search the Internet.

In order to retire writing articles online you have to produce allot of articles and have plenty of content to write about, having at least 2000 approved articles posted online in order to live of the residual income some might consider living comfortably. On a an average month, when I first started, had made no less than .50 an article a month, but so far no more than 2.00 a month for my best articles after 3 month, so I still have a lot to do and a long way to go as very determined to eventually retire as content contributor and online publisher.

Some publishers will even offer to buy articles upfront and will pay instantly anywhere to $2.00 -$20.00 per article, but that with a lesser percentage of monthly residual income. Publisher will generally give you the option if this is available to you.

You do the math... Secure your future today! You can write and publish articles online just about anything. You can advertise your business, write about how to do something, submit a poem, even a recipe.... The list goes on....

If writing articles online is your cup of tea, you are on your way to a very secure future should you decide to publish online, security that can be passed down to your children or family members every month of the year. Now that is security that you can trust... Better then any IRA, or CD that I have heard of. Again writing articles online is great way to secure your future and can prepare you for retirement.
