      You dont even look/seem old enough to open a bank account, yet alone earn a million. Lets look at this in detail. You are from the UK? So we are talking pounds (£1 was about $1.60 last time I checked).

      Lets say that the normal selling price for a paperback book is £6.99 in waterstones or ottakers. The author's cut would be not much over £1. Lets say £1 to make it easy.

      You are saying that you have £1 million in cash in your bank account. Until recently tax on that level of income in the UK was 40%.

      So your gross revenue would need to be at least £1.4 million, assuming no money spent. That is 1.4 million standard paperback books. At very very least.

      I suspect that you are talking bollocks.

        I am actually 27 years old !!! I might look young but does not mean I am a child I think that is pretty damn rude. I made my money Ghost writing, and I have my own agency and PR company so don't tell me it is impossible to make that sort of money. That off my chest, to respond to a lot of the other rubbish that has been said, I was asking a  simple question and people attack me saying I am just looking to get noticed!! ERM NO!!! Why would I want to make more money well it is simply an experiment as I have always wanted to make money online I tried a good few years but did not succeed and I am just getting to grips with things here and people are attacking me for asking a simple question!!! I was not rude to Marissa she was very rude to me saying she suspects I am looking to get noticed when the reason I posted again because I did not see the answer to the question before I thought I did not actully post it!!!!! For a community of writers where people are supposed to be supporting each other I am disgusted at the way people have behaved on here to be honest.

    Since this is the second time you've asked a similar question, I suspect you're more interested in being noticed than receiving a serious answer.

      erm i think that is pretty rude, I have been on here for two months but never really posted anything until just recently I asm still getting to grips with the whole hub pages thing if you must know and i did post something similar before but i was not even sure if it got posted, i only noticed it today actually you can go and check and see that today was the first time i posted a reply and this was after i had already posted it again. so before you open your mouth think! I am not more interested in getting noticed actually, I am not even that active on Hubpages my pages are triond and xomba if you must know. I cant stand rude people who jump to conclusions before they even know the facts! get a life!

        At this point, you claim you've made your fortune offline and now want to make it online- yet you attack people who have posted to your forum post and then you end it with 'get a life!'

        Your attempt to provide any insight or knowledge, is severely lacking. You, bring an attitude that doesn't befit someone who has a fortune. As for your 'style' or 'format' of your response to the people in this posting- shows you are not educated and therefore don't have a real clue.

        So, you've have simply done more damage than you appear to realize.

        With that I leave you to ponder about your dishonest and deceitful actions and words.

        It is YOU who needs to get a life or at least a better understanding what life really means.

        You don't need to respond, for I will not be back to read your response.

        Have a nice day.

        Hi I;m new to hubpages too.  I came to write for the fun of it. I got alot off my chest. I'm into politics so I have 5 hubs I'm proud of and I really stir it up on the forums. But...I'm not against making money either. That would be gravy. So I hope you get the answers you need. It might help me too. Good Luck to you.

    I haven't heard of anybody who made millions by just writing online.  However,  you can make millions by writing a book as long as you can market it effectively.

    You have made a fortune writing offline...I'm be interested to know with what. It is extremely rare for any writers to make a fortune.

    And I think you were rude to Marisa, you did post the same question before.

      There you go, that's plenty to be able to write a great "what not to do" book wink.

      OP...take a deep breath, chill out a bit, most of us are here to have a good time and maybe help out a bit, but a lot of people may back off if everything they say makes you defensive. Trust me, I know the "baby face" issue, I still have people asking me if I'm in high school yet, but I just remind myself that if that holds true for another 20-30 years I'll start to really love it. I don't know how this PR company is doing, but it seems like it might do better with a bit of work on relating to the public in a calm, collected manner.

    If I had made a million dollars writing offline, the last thing I'd be doing is hanging around these forums.

    There would be a beach with my name on it somewhere.

      Try Costa Rica, Pam. Ahem. Anyway, I was quoting you for a different reason: folks who claim to make the big buck with online writing and are still popping up in forums to say so should have their pulse checked. No, better check their brain, as it may be dead. Maybe from so much writing. Or money making. Duh.

    Personally, I believe that you can very easily make a million from writing online. In fact, I can name a few people who have done that already and then some. But the key here is one simple thing...

    Write for yourself (ie, your own website). Okay, that's the only way to make a million writing online. Of course it does take time though. And then you have to write about something that your are passionate about. One of my favorite bloggers is Steve Pavila (hope I spelled his name right). He's about the best source on a subject that I am very passionate about, and he has definitely made his million online. He deserves kudos for writing a legit blog, when there are so many "fake" blogs out there that earn money running on autopilot.
