In Response to Residual Income by Writing about what you know by forlanda
Be very careful with HubPages and similar aggregated content publishers. There is some controversy surrounding them rignt now. Do your research. According to what I've read in exploring the idea of publishing on one or more of these sites, they typically don't generate all that much income they allude one to think. Also, from what I saw when I perused several articles from various sites, I noticed most of the articles are not particularly well written, fact-checked, reviewed or edited. Apparently, the "community" is intended to do the editorial work rather than the publisher (i.e. owner of the site).
These sites are nice if you just want to try your hand at writing and you do retain the copyrights. But don't expect a significant income. On report I read from someone who had published on these types of sites showed that his average income (from advertising hits through AdSense and similar advertising engines) was $10 per article per year. If this report is at all accruate, one would have to write a lot of articles and republish them on more than one site to generate anything significant. (FYI: Republishing actually be detrimental, based on what I've read over the last 3 days or researching the idea.) Frankly, you can earn more as a Wal-Mart greeter and get more exercise and social interaction in the bargain.
I'm not saying don't do it. I'm just saying research this possibility thoroughly before you make your decision. I thought it would be a good idea for me and my wife, because she is a retired teacher and I was a freelance writer in the 1990s until returning to engineering and business. But the research told me that the amount of work wasn't worth the low return.
Whatever you might decide,I wish you luck.
