    Which do you think comes first?  Write for the love of writing and money becomes secondary or....

    money is the motivation to write in Hubpages?

    I think there are two breeds of cats. There are those who utilize Hubpages to send backlinks to their sites and make money. Then there are those who write on Hubpages because they want to help people, or share their story.

    It's two different things for two very different people.

    With all respect Mainstreetcm, I do both, simply because I do love writing. I can't picture myself doing anything else in life, and so if I have to monetize, it might as well be accomplished with writing.

    You are correct in that some people ONLY care about the "juice" and others care nothing for profits. But there are others, like me, who are stuck between both worlds and juggle the cakes as well as they can wink

    Writing should continue if you love it, even though you never make any money. If it makes you happy to write, it's worth more than money. You can not put a value on being happy.

    I agree with mainstreetcm, some of us are here just for pure enjoyment of writing and helping, while  others are making or trying to make some extra income; not that there is anything wrong with that but, to answer your question if I really understood it.
    I think the love of writing would have come first and then the monetary side of things would just fall into place with time.
    We all have bills and desires so, the love of doing anything at all can turn into a extra curriculum activity or even a very lucrative career.
