Making Money at Home With HubPages

I have mentioned in one of my old posts about receiving the Versatile Blogger Award that I earn the most from Google Adsense by writing in HubPages.  I mentioned there that I would be writing a post about it and this is it...quite overdue actually.

What is HubPages? HubPages is a one of the places online where aspiring writers or authors (called Hubbers) can publish articles (called Hubs) on topics they know.  By publishing content, authors share in the revenue generated through advertising vehicles such as Google Adsense, Kontera, the Amazon and Ebay affiliates program.  Aside from the potential revenue, HubPages has one of the best community of Hubbers who support and help each other.

I've been with HubPages for about 15 months and have written 30+ hubs. I started with HubPages because I was curious if it was really possible for me to earn a little extra from my writing. (I was not doing well with earning from blogging though I am quite hooked to it.)  I was a bit scared at the beginning because I am not really a writer, but I tried it anyway.

The first few hubs I published, I started earning cents into my Adsense account from day 3.  Since I was also very busy at home, I sometimes put off writing for another time.  When I discovered that there was such a thing called Hubmob Weekly Topic in HubPages, I joined in whenever I can.  It is a sort of a program wherein Hubbers can join by writing about a specific topic on a certain week.  It is good that I am joining that because sometimes I honestly do not know what to write about.

When I had written about 15 hubs, I noticed that I was already earning more in my Adsense account. I figured that I needed to write more hubs if I want to increase my income. That's a little difficult for me to do because of having to take care of my kids.

Anyway, now after 15 months, at 30+ hubs, I'm averaging about $20-25 per month. That is actually fair enough, considering that I am not really doing much in promoting my hubs (It's a good thing the search engines love HubPages) and I'm actually only able to publish as little as 1-2 hubs per month.

Another year is about to start and one of the things that I would include in my to-do list for the coming new year is to write more hubs. I know other authors in HubPages are earning more from writing hubs, as much as $1000 per month.  THAT IS COMPLETELY PASSIVE INCOME.  And we don't have to pay even a single cent for domain or anything.  All the publishing tools and tutorials are available for free.  So, why not take advantage of this revenue stream by writing quality content!

Would you be interested in joining the HubPages community and earn some revenue?  Why not join HubPages?  If you do join, let me know and I'd be one of those who would first welcome you to the HP community.

Update: Since a few years ago, HubPages has implemented a different earnings program. Though hubbers still need to sign up for Google Adsense and Amazon Associates, Hubpages pays its writers directly for earned revenue from ads and Amazon sales. Payout is given when a hubber has at least $50 of earned revenue.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
