    Short answer is yes, but how would vary depending on where you live. There is an exception if your earnings are very low in the UK, currently, if your earnings are below £1000 then it's classed as a hobby and not taxable, but I'm not sure for other countries - you'd need to check with an accountant or the relevant tax authority
