it's all about giving it enough time these days, i reckon. you can make money as long as you give it enough time. unless you get in on something big that goes viral, its unrealistic expecting to make money from a few new articles. you've got to grow the website over months. keep on putting out quality stuff over a period of months and you'll attract the repeat traffic. and with the traffic comes the money.
coding is pretty important too. content is all well and good, but if the page takes five seconds to load then nobody will see it.
you can also create a load of new pages with coding alone. put 10 pages worth of quality content into a database and you might be able to spin 100 pages out of it.
