I'm sure this has been asked before, oh well, I'm asking again. Why do you write Hubs?
If you had to choose one answer... do you write hoping to make money, or simply as a creative outlet and/or "soapbox"?
Partly because I want to figure out a way to generate a stream of money from online content. Both from writing on a site like hubpages and maybe using hubpages to promote some other blogs and websites I plan to eventually build.
Also I have always enjoyed writing, even for high school and college assignments. I like the process of researching and then putting your thoughts down. It forces you to think and you learn allot as you go.
I did this same gig on myspace for years without any hopes of getting paid. . . . .but guess what? The opportunity for making a dollar has made me better at what I would have been doing anyway.
Gives me something to do, improves my writing ability and keeps my imagination alive. And I'm a motor mouth at heart.
You are probably correct...it likely has been asked before. I do it because it seems to fit with my creative style and storylines. The Hub is far more complex that people realize. When you decide to write and forty chapter book here in a series, all I can say is that it better be damn good because I dont' think this is your audience. That's not to say that your book is bad, I am simply looking at the makeup of the Hub and saying that the vast majority of people as readers here pefer the short story, short article, poetry, etc....a book on the hub has to be beyond the scope of good to hold the majority of readers from front to back. I write because I need to...I didn't know that for a long time, but I need to write. Anything beyond that is gravy but I will always write for the reader and for the quality aspect. If in the process I make some money...so be it! LOL! WB
I am hoping that my hubs will be of help to others around the world, however I do need to earn money which I do with kooday as well as getting more viewers for my hubs (have hub on kooday)
I enjoy writing even though I am not very good at it like a lot on here .
Hopefully I will improve with practice !
To educate, express myself and possibly earn a bit of extra income as well.
For fun. Creative outlet that nobody edits, free as can be. It's liberating.
I write for the pleasure of writing and, because as a Christian Writer I can share with others Almighty God and His love for us, and His plan for us to become one big happy family.
I'm having fun with this and it helps me tap the creative side of me. Also for practice, to sharpen my writing skills
I love putting my thoughts to paper and expressing myself, hoping to help someone along the way or make them smile!
It gives me something to do. It allows me to share stories or information with others. I haven't been approved by adsense yet and I doubt I will make much money. But, to an out of work gal like me a few cents or dollars from sharing stories would be pretty awesome. However, I'm not expecting to make much or anything at all. I just like writing.
I was hoping i would be creative enough to make money, but unfortunately my writing skills and ideas of writing that could be hubs are far between. very far
I write hubs for entertainment value. My hubs tend to be straight to the point and full of pure entertainment, or at least, that is what I hope the content demonstrates.
Its not only about writing .you can get important informations too by reading hubs .Its fun and improving my writing skills too.It makes me feel that i am talking to some and sharing my thoughts

You know, I see forum posts complaining about how the forums are boring or dying. I see people complaining about how there's all "Indian Aunties" hubs or picture hubs, how people don't edit, it's all marketing crap and nothing good to read... and then I find these amazing...

Do you consider HubPages a hobby or as a way to boost your income?I started writing on HubPages as a creative outlet, but now that I'm beginning to make a little money, I'm changing my outlook.

I have over 60 hubs now and could have several hundred before year end. I have been using groups so far to handle the hubs I have, but would like to hear how others with hundreds of hubs manage them.Thank you.

Quick questions on new Q & A:First, I'm just curious about on average how long people's responses are. We've talked about making answers longer for quality and ranking purposes but I am not writing most as anything close to as long as a hub.Second, in regards to length - if I do write an...
