I write out of passion. Stories and ideas are always flipping around in my head. I'm not making any money from my writing so I cant say it's to earn, however I would love to start earning money from my writing. Smile!
Firstly I write because I love to do so. I take real joy out of, hopefully, writing articles that people will enjoy. Secondly if I earn money from it, then it's a very nice bonus!
I write out of passion. I've been on here 3 years and haven't earned anything. I find it relaxing to get all my thoughts out, it's always a pleasure to write.
I love to write but at the same time I don't mind doing the extra work to manage to earn from what I write
Both. I think using my passion to earn is the wisest combination. Why do a job I hate when I have a passion and talent for writing? This is what I love so it's like earning from my hobby. It's not really like work at all, because I love it.
I write for both purposes, to be honest. I love the idea of making money with my hubs here on the site and since writing IS my passion, it's the best of both worlds. Hence why I want to get published one day. It'd be a means of making money from the thing I love most.
Isn't that what everyone wants in life? To get paid for doing what they love?
Initially, I wrote out of passion. Their were poems and stories that I had been thinking about for years and I needed a place to document them. I also wanted to record some of my mother's recipes to pass on to my children.
Once I started to earn a few pennies, it inspired me to write more to see if I can actually make a significant amount of money. However, I still only write about things that interest me or that I am passionate about.
I'm a journalist in real live, so I do write for a living. For HP, it's a mix between writing out of passion and writing for extra earning.
I write now because I like to write about things that interest me. I get more satisfaction from somebody commenting on my writing then I get from earning money. Now if I make a little money in writing then bonus!
Hands down.........be it passion, revelation, sharing, or even, at times, confession..............
I have enough money.........
I do not cook for it, nor do I write for it..........these things, are the things that express.............me.
I love writing, singing, drawing painting..and more. If I get the opportunity to exchange and learn from a lot of people it is even better... I love www.hubpages.com. I have met great people and spirits here. Love and peace to all. Money? Yes, but not yet.
Passion! I am retired, so I do what I want to do. I also know what it's like to work for the money and only the money. Big difference.
I write for both reasons, but mainly out of passion. If my passion can earn me money, then I see that as a plus.
I am first and foremost a Poet who writes out of passion, no money for poetry at the Hubs and I am fine with that. I respect those who are here writing for money and I wish them all the best. Keep writing rich content articles and stories and eventually the money will come, patience is required. Don't put all your eggs in one basket, diversify your writes and find other places that can earn you money as well. There sure are enough of them.
Writing is my passion. I know I am not perfect or can be included in the list of best writers, but I love writing. I cant stop it till my last breath.
The absolute truth of the matter is that I'd be writing anyway - but that earnings make me better at doing it.
Writing is my passion.. i never notice my profile rank my article rank etc..
I would say a little of both. My journey started with a desire, became a passion and along the way I began earning a bit of money. I enjoy the income and am working at increasing it so I can do what I love, which is write.

This was a nice experiment, but I've ultimately concluded that this site blows. The two competing interests are making money and writing quality articles. Mind you, I've written a handful of stellar hubs, yet I haven't a penny to show for it. Sure, I have about 100 or so impressions on AdSense, but...

I have been reflecting recently on the direction that this site has taken, in particular the growing number of people who sign up and then ask 7 days or 14 days later when they will begin making money. Or they ask whether their CTR across 10 page views per day is good, or seek a magic formula for...

Let me be honest with you, I joined Hubpages in the hope that I will be able to earn some extra income to supplement my college expenses. I know there is no such thing as easy money and I shouldn't expect to live off my earnings on hubpages. But, If I get a good number of my hubs featured, how much...

Do people still earn money on here? On hubpages? I am curious

I have written under the guise of different pseudonyms on HubPages since 2010. I never earned more than $5. Can you earn money on this site from writing fiction or is this site more a 'self-help' 'how to' blog that needs 'polls, pictures and links etc?'

Do you write what interest you, or try to write what interest others?
