    Do You Write for Passion or to Make Extra Cash?

    I had always written just for passion and to socialize but I have come to realize that I can write for passion and still make some cash doing that. So, do you write just because you enjoy writing or you write for an additional source of income?

    Since I haven't made any extra cash yet, I guess it's a good thing I do this for fun/passion. smile

    I write personally because i love what i am doing, i don't write for money alone, though the money is a needed motivation to get the best out of me though.

    All that I write is true to who I am, that is my passion. I write on hub pages to generate some cash so I can go on living my passion

    Writing is the same as art to me.  I write because passion leads me.  It is wonderful to become engrossed in a writing or art project.  My satisfaction is the completion of an idea or vision.  They say to do what you love and eventually the income will follow too.  I believe in that creative genius within each one of us!

    I have to say both. I love to do research and write and thats why I publish them in form of hubs. But the possibility of making money with hubs is just another incentive.

    Writing is fun and when I think of something I like trying to match it to a product to promote. I guess because I always loved show and tell as a kid and I do a little sales work at my job. However, I write for the money. It's all buisness

    i write because it helps me get things off of my chest, so too speak, I dont care about income, it just makes me feel sattisfied if I write down something great or unusual.

    Passion and socialize. There is always a better way to make cash. But I have always loved to write and have never had the imaginary pull drawing me to writing each week. I normally only write when depressed. But now I write each week and feel satisfied in doing so. It's the entertainment.
