    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?

    For me it is about both of these reasons and I have been validated with my 1 article that I have written and put it on the internet with google and the referring sites found my article in 2 months and is now seen in 8 countries. I have written the greatest article on the earth and the referring sites have spread my article around the world with me doing absolutely nothing but write it and set it free on the internet for the referring sites to find it and they did find it in 2 months. I am now just kicking back and watching the money abundantly flow to me from my 1 article. I earned my first $.01 cent on December 28, 2010 A.D. It only takes 1 article to write and have it be a hit instantly through referring sites that found my article in 2 months and have done all of the promoting of my article. Write it and the referring sites will find your article like they did with mine if it is of excellent and high quality content like my article is and no member of hubpages can see my article except the staff of hubpages.

    Just started with my hub a few days ago and it's to share and get info.   Hubpages is a great place to do this.  If I can earn doing something I like then why not?

    Like you, there are stories within me that need to be told.  I have spent hours, days, weeks, at hubpages, in the end, I had to go to work. 

    I sure do miss writing and hubpages.

    Well it all started by using hubpages to get backlinks to other articles, but that has all gone out the window and I now think I am a hubpages addict! Yes my primary reason for writing is to earn some extra cash but there is no doubt that what keeps me going is the fact that I love writing! I have always wanted to write a book for as long as I can remember and maybe my hubpages writing will eventually lead me to that, who knows!

    I think when you look at it from the perspective of both, you enjoy the experience much more!

    I greatly enjoy writing and educating others on what I feel might be helpful to them. And writing here on Hubpages satisfies that interest of mine. But it's also very helpful (and encouraging) when I can benefit from my writing by earning in whatever way Hubpages allows - whether it be through Adsense or allowing me to post links to my own site and blog.

    The draw of both is what keeps me coming back. I've had a few accounts with Hubpages over the years, and have received great benefit from all of them, financially as well as satisfying my love of writing (and honing my skills).

    For me, it's a way to keep my professional skills up-to-date and keep my name and work "out there"  while trying to re-enter my profession. I realized from the get-go that I would not make much money.

    Isn't it both?  We write to commit our thoughts to paper or electronic files. We work hard to formulate our thoughts into Hubs that will be easily read and understand. We may even hope to refer a prospective job interviewer to Hub pages to read our material if we think it's pertinent. If we make money creating Hub pages, that's great, but overall, Hub pages are a place to work at improving our writing craft amongst a community of supportive like minded people.

    I joined for the love of writing. Earning is just a bonus. I joined to share my thoughts on things I'm passionate about. I wanted to give my thoughts some avenue and not just compile my articles on a notebook I've kept since high school.

    I don't think hubpages is only about money. (there are many other ways of making money).

    I write hubs firstly because I love writing. Its also a good way of polishing my craft (since one is writing regularly), adding to my knowledge and conceptual clarity(as I research), and meeting a whole lot of lovely people from different parts of the world, who write on a very wide range of topics in varied writing styles. I am not denying that the money is a very attractive bonus - it is - just that there is so much more to hubs.

    I think for me it's a bit of both. I love writing, but I also love to get paid for doing what I love!

    I write because I love it and I do article marketing to try and get back links to my site, I find it very interesting researching my topic and find good relevant content that I can use in my articles.

    Well to me it's more about the impact that using HubPages brings each individual, this was certainly a community made for people to enjoy both writing and also earning money while doing it so, who in here doesn't enjoy the benefits of making hundreds  of dollars per month? Since there are many people who enjoy making a full time income from their Web Sources including HubPages, and I must admit I am also one of those individual.

    I know writing to me is a joy, but if I can find a way to earn with it, then I'll do it, this is certainly a great platform that allows us to do both things with passion, writing and earning at the same time, but the biggest thing I enjoy the most about HubPages is the community of members around it. We share classic moments and also the joys of our lives put into hubs, knowing that great people from the community will also be reading it as well. It's good to be here.

    I think it all depends on the hubber.  I want to communicate.  I love to write.  I may never make a cent doing it here.  I may make a mint doing it elsewhere.  For now, I need to DO it, for someone besides just me, and HubPages was the best place I could think of to start.  I don't want an audience.  I want a group of people who feel that I've sincerely and artfully communicated something meaningful to them or for them.  Someday, that could turn into money.  Right now, it's just because I love it, love it, love it.
