I did not join for the earnings. As a child, I loved to read and write. When some troubling issues arose in my life, I started writing as an outlet. My life consists of working full-time, taking care of my husband (chronic illness complicated over the last two years), my teenage son, a son who is an addict (worry about him daily), and a grandson (who I never get to see anymore).
I don't publish as much as I should. I have tons of research and thoughts wrote, but just haven't taken the time to put them into format on HubPages. I would love to have more time to dedicate to my HubPage writing.
