If there was an alternative Organisation, that paid you to write, that gave you real money for your labour. How many of you would still stay with Google.
I want to sit back and hear from all those out there that say
"I would remain loyal to Google".............
writing for Google? We are writing for hubpages..?
Anyway, its not like we are professional full time writers who only want to write because they want to earn money.
Actually believe it or not we are all writing for Google, forget we enjoy Hubpages it is Google that is profiting, I can say I would write for free for Hub Pages, while they established an advertising system, that gave them the money they deserved.
Google is a parasite.
I would write for nothing as well, oops I just remembered with my google earnings I am actually writing for nothing, well said girl
Is it your new avatar that is influencing your thinking, or you picked this new avatar because of your new thinking?
A lot of my work is writing for money, just different writing from this at hubpages.
I do get paid for my writing, but I still write on HubPages and pick up Google earnings. I don't see it as giving Google anything because all I "give" them is ad space on something that wouldn't exist if I didn't write on HubPages; and since they pay me for that space I'm not "giving" it to them.
I keep telling friends and relatives they ought to do some online writing under the "Google arrangement", because after you write the stuff it just sits there and picks up earnings (some Hubs more than others).
My biggest earners are not my best writing and didn't take me very long to write. Still, those "bigger earners" pay me far more each month than a lot of for-hire articles would pay me once. It's a different "earnings set-up" than getting assigned an article and getting paid for it, but there's a real potential for earnings under this "set-up", so for the minimal degree of work involved, I think it's both enjoyable and worth it.
For me, it's a nice extra income each month; and I get to write whatever I feel like writing on HubPages - "win/win". So, I'm being honest when I say that unless I just get sick of "hobby" writing, I plan to keep aiming to see the monthly earnings increase. A lot of "hobbies" don't pay, and it's kind of fun to earn from material that's just "sitting there". It takes time to start earning regularly, and the best earnings come from "really searchable" Hubs (as opposed to the "what-is-life" kind of writing); but you can do both.
I write for several, as well as any individual company who'll give me an assignment.
If it weren't for Google we wouldn't be here and wouldn't be able to research our hubs so easily without lugging piles of books from the library.
To earn money i freelance. On hubpages i enjoy the freedom to write what I want to and make friends doing it.
I haven't made a nickel here yet so I guess I don't have much to say. I'm one of those fools that writes articles and stories without regard to tag words or back links or another of little thingy that supposed to make me rich. I'm happy that I my meals don't depend on this.

I often see forum posts about how the site is 'dying', or asking why people would continue writing here after they've earned success on their own websites. So I thought I'd start a thread about WHY people still write...

Was curious after seeing most of the long term - experienced Hubbers. So thought of doing some research. Topic explains it. Let's try to be truthful here. What really keeps you going on here on HP? Why should Hubpages...

I have nothing left to write. The last two hubs I wrote were an experiment to see if I could write "viral" content, which I don't think I did very well on.Beyond that, I think I have ran out of topics to...

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs,...
