I think we all need to be very careful with the 24 hours we are given in a day. If we have family responsibilities and people who need us to give them shelter, food, encouragement, love and real time, this is more important than sequestering ourselves away on a computer whether we make $30 a month on Hubpages or $1000 a month. To make a lot of money on Hubpages, a lot of time and late nights must be put in. If writing for money and fame is our aspiration and if we don't have people who depend on us for interaction, maybe it's an option. Many people, however, on Hubpages still earn a living through a five-day work week. Writing on Hubpages is, for most of us, something to do for pleasure, and not at the cost of ignoring other, more important aspects of our lives, especially our loved ones. Then there are hobbies, too. We can't let our other interests and talents fall by the wayside every time we get an inspiration to write something. At least for me, I think it's important to write when the inspiration comes, but only if I feel all else in my life is in order that day or week. It's all about balance. Sometimes I'll have a week or two when I know I could write up a storm, no other responsibilities in view just for a short while and I've received some inspirations about things I'd love to write about, but often I decide instead to use that time frame to write only in my grandchildren's journals or do artwork on my free days. Retired people or people who do not need to work at a day job (I used to be in that group) yes, they might have more time for giving in to all of their writing inspirations and still be able to balance everything else. Everybody's different, but we all only receive the same 24 hours in a day. Happy writing, everyone.
