Why Hubbers Write Hubs

Updated on June 25, 2018

Ruth Kongaika was born in the Rocky Mountains and has lived most of her life in the South Pacific. She travels, gardens and writes.


There are a myriad of reasons why Hubbers (people who write for Hubpages) like to create hubs. Here are a few that I can think of:

  • Love of writing
  • Want to be heard (have a voice)
  • Need to vent
  • Support for a cause
  • Want tointeractwith others
  • Love to share their expertise
  • To make money
  • To cause a ruckus (spout off)
  • To make a point
  • To share their beliefs

Other reasons why Hubbers write hubs:

  • They have no friends
  • They have no job
  • They have too much time
  • They have no life
  • They are addicted
  • They are avoiding other responsibilities
  • They think they know everything
  • They want to be discovered

So, which one are you? I know that I write because I have enjoyed my interactions with other hubbers, enjoy the residual income which automatically shows up in my bank account occasionally, and I also enjoy sharing my unique experiences.

I am sure there are many other reasons that I have missed.

Here are some examples of why I think Hubbers write hubs:

Want to Be Heard

Earth Angel shared this great subject:

Need to Vent

Here is one I wrote on a bad day:

Support for a Cause

Here is my attempt to support our well-deserving Troops

Love to Share Their Expertise

Frogdropping promoted bone marrow donation in his hub:

Want to Interact with Others

Tom Rubenoff shared this great hub:

To Make Money

Sweetsusieg from Michigan wrote about making money by writing for Hubpages:

To Cause a Ruckus

Check out these controversial hubs:

To Make a Point

Thanks Hal Licino for this revelation:

To Share Their Beliefs

Okay, I admit, I am a Mormon

So, what is your main reason for writing hubs?

    We do what we have to do, Sherry, don't we? Maybe you could spout off in one of your hubs, and then I will have you covered (hehehe). Glad you dropped by and left your comments. Aloha!

    First of all I think this is a very clever way of getting a lot of comments. I think every one of your bullet points applies to me, except may the spout off one, I haven't done too much of that, at least not yet.

    By sharing on social networks and on blogs, you will get more readers. It takes a while to build it up - don't get discouraged ironbutler. Also read other hubbers hubs and comment like you did mine, and they usually will return the favor. Cheers!

    I am not sure that HP is the best avenue for my writing. I am thinking about changing to writing notes and putting it in bottles and releasing them into the duck pond which adjoins the Pacific Ocean.

    The first few bottles didn't get very far as they sank in the water.

    I realize that I was supposed to put a cork in the top of the bottle, but cork is so hard to find now a days. Scotch Tape, Duck Tape, napkins, rocks, and a number of other items also failed.

    I am thinking of using those popcorn pieces that come in packages, or maybe some bubble gum, I should probably use sugar free, if I want to do a lot of bottles. It make take a while but I think I can get free of HP.

    got to go, another bottle sank...

    I'm one of those "writing lovers" Elayne. And I love the power the HP capsules give me to create multi-media hubs that are a lot more interesting that reading plain text.

    When friends ask me what I write about I have no trouble explaining. After all, I already say it in my profile. But when they ask me WHY I wrote, I have trouble answering. Your hub helped me realize why. All of the above!... Depending on the kind of day I'm having. lol.

    I love to write and help people with the medical hubs, and sometimes I just like to write, but I love all the people I have met along the way. Plus I have learned so much from others.
