    What is HubPages to you?

    Neither actually.  I use Hubpages to post my writing that might not otherwise be read. I really enjoy having people read my work and comment.  Likewise, I enjoy hub hopping and reading and experience other people's writing style.

      I love your honest answer. I just found a new person to read. Thanks for hopping and hubbing!

      I also enjoy the feedback. I have written a few books that I am trying to promote. Writing hubs has given me a way to get myself recognized. Good Show!

    To be honest, I use HubPages to produce a secondary income, improve my writing, and share my knowledge.  I write a lot of health and nutrition-related articles. It's nice to see my work being shared on other sites, such as Facebook, Pinterest, etc. so the more people share them, the more they learn about health foods. I definitely don't use it to vent...what's the point?
    I also like reading and learning about other hubber's writing too!

    Neither. I don't vent and I don't produce revenue on hubpages. It is a place I can come to and relax. I get comfort from writing, am interested in questions people ask, and enjoy answering questions.

    For the most part, I've always used HubPages as part of an overall, "skimmed"-time (free time, or at least time away from real work) that's part of a "whole picture" of online-writing that I use to earn extra money.  I've never vented (although within the last day I've been sort of doing some venting back and forth with someone in the comments section of one Hub).  Anyway, I don't vent.  Some of my Hubs could look like "venting" because they're based in personal experience, but my reason for most of that kind of Hub is to try "make people aware" of something, or else try to share what dealing with one thing or another can really be like.

    My approach is try to offer what I, personally, can offer; because "the world" can offer all  kinds of things on one subject or another (and often better than I can).  So, I go with the one thing I have to offer, which is whatever I've picked up through personal experience mixed with research/study I've done over the years, and for reasons unrelated to some specific Hubs.

    On the scale of writing, there's a lot of writing/motives between just "for money only and nothing else" and "for my own venting purposes".   I make my second income by writing what I want to write, and if it weren't for the fact that I do make that second income I wouldn't be writing online at all.  Either way, with the exception of that very recent back-and-forth in some comments; nothing I write on here is venting.  I may be trying to help someone, change the world, express an opinion, or just offer a side to a subject that is often presented in a more one-sided way; but it's never venting and it's always with the idea of earning (even if only by adding volume to the Hubs I have so that some small earners can combined with others and amount to a little something more).

    I have to admit I have used HubPages to vent, but as time goes on I am trying to channel that venting into a creative piece.  HubPages has helped me in this process by letting me know when a piece is too personal, too bloggy if you will.  I am an emotional person and those emotions are what help me to write.  I think most of Hemingway's writings came from venting.
    I write because I love to write and want to be read, I take photographs because I love photography and I want it to be seen.  If I can make a living (I am not so far) from them, then all the better?
