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
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.
Yep! THe love of writing can keep you here longer than if you are here for money. I'm just afew days old on hubpages and am pretty addicted. The environment is condusive to learning and working. I am enjoying this place. Im sure you do too! Happy hubbing!

I assume we all love to write, but what with the Google 'adjustments,' it seems there's an implied mass exodus. Or perhaps all the grumbling going on is simply the yearly cycle of discontent. Folks crave the attention at times. Hell, so do I.This isn't exactly a rant, although I...

I used to love blogging, answering forum posts, whatever I could do to share knowledge. This was when I didn't have to work for a living, and I had lots of money and lots of time.Now that I have to do it to earn a living, I almost can't bear to do it. I have to literally force myself to write every...

I was wondering if there are many writers earning more than $100 a week? Consistently.Some people just write for their own pleasure, but others write in order to earn money. There are different ways to get your work out there, some pay whilst others do not.What are your experiences with being paid...

Is writing hubs about making money or for the love of writing?I don't write hubs that will get me hundreds of advertisement clicks, I write because I love writing. Why do you write hubs?
