Why do you write hubs? Money, fame, enjoy writing, personal cleansing?


Writing hubs is a fantastic way for me to unwind after work, and at the same time have a third-party attributed value assigned to that writing, which lets me also fulfill some competitive aspect of my personality. Why do other writers here do it? Is it to make money, or for personal counselling and stress release, or just for fun? Want to win hub awards, become famous? Give us the real nitty gritty behind your reasoning....

    Wow, well done with earning some money. I must be really rubbish because if money was the measure of my writing, I could officially conclude that I'm rubbish :)

    Judging by your hub rating, people other than your immediate family quite like what they're reading :)

    Yup, it seems that the money is not huge... but it's good fun writing here.

    The personal experiences and reasons for each person writing here are, without a doubt, what makes the site so interesting.

    Agree wholeheartedly. Writing takes my mind off whatever may be lingering in my mind after work and sort of cleans the slate.

    Thanks for dropping by.

    I always wonder about the financial aspect because so many of the people writing here seem far more talented than general reports on income would suggest. Enjoy and thanks for sharing...
