    Which is the greater motivation for you when writing hubs, making money or helping people?

    I know some people create hubs to make money and others just want to help people. A lot of people do both. Which is the greater motivation for you?

    basicly i do that because i like to write ...so nothing to do with help people or making money..
    even i love to help people...
    i write because i like..and i write all what comes from my head..
    that's all...

    be honest...

    Depend upon the nature of people who is writing hubs.As some people motivates and happy in making money and some people more prefer in helping people than money

    My first hubs was basically to promote website I recently created, and started to read about how to promote it.

    Then when I started I saw that I had change to share some of the knowledge I have retained by being NGO webmaster over the years and had to answer over and over again by people that have taken over. 

    I love it and hopefully there are many more topics to come...

    I love helping people and I love to write - so this is like my Utopia.
    The money is just a bonus.

    I try to write on topics that people can use the information contained within.  Therfore, I am helping people.  What is my motivation?  Useful information for the readers.

    Money Isn't The Issue When You're Extremely Young, My Temptation, My Ambition Is To Liberate Peoples Souls.

    To be Able To Express My Message And Faith In God, For The Love Of Others.

    I Don't Want This World To Slip Away; I Just Don't Get It.

    My Writings Are About My Emotions And Views, Someone Might Enjoy Reading Them.

    Though, For Me... On and Off This Computer, It's About Helping Others.
