If making money wasn't an option on HubPages, would you still write for this site...


No matter if you make pennies a day or dollars. This question isn't about how much money a hubber makes. I'm just curious how many hubbers would still hub if they weren't earning money for the pub or to get some grub. My answer is yes, I would still write on HP.

    Great minds thinking alike Jimmy! I also didn't start writing on HubPages for money. I started for free therapy and it's worked out perfectly for me. Any money I make is a bonus and appreciated, but I don't dwell on the earnings. I just skip the pub.

    Very true for many hubbers Bill. If it wasn't for HubPages they might never have known the potential they have to be a good writer. Thanks for sharing! I'm glad you have a dollar a day for some grub!:)

    Hi annart, I used to feel guilty also about not publishing in a while, but the guilt fades over time and this is when you begin to enjoy the hubbing community even more. Happy Hubbing!
