I wonder what makes people to join hubpages in the first place.
Hubbers, what is the major reason why you are on this sight; is to make money or you just like writing and reading from others?
I originally joined this site to write with no idea that I would earn money, I hadn't earned any decent money writing anywhere else. I was eventually pleasantly surprised. I still mainly write for the writing, but money is also an important part now.
I joined to write and thought I could make money. Now I just want to change the world with what I write and don't bother with the ads. Oh, yeah...I want to make people laugh and think...maybe at the same time.
I joined to meet a community of other writers, and to get feedback on my writing. So far it's been a great experience! I can't be on the site as much as I would like (I'm working full time, and I'm a part-time student), so my earnings are nill but that isn't really my motivator anyway. I've met a lot of cool writers on here, and networking is now a big motivator for me as well.
I joined to write, I had been reading for months and had all these wonderful writers as friends. Now they all read my writing and I still read theirs. They are a great group of people.
My main reason is to have a place to write where I will be read soon, and people will let me know what they think - in other words - the writing/reading community.
But I do it for more than one reason - I'm growing a base for making money, too.
To write! It is nice to explore the topics to write about and see which hubs attract the most readers. I take it as a learning experience and I get to do something I enjoy!

I'm just interested really. I have joined hubpages as a forum to publish my writing and I have little or no interest in making money at the moment. This might change once I better understand Adsense, SEO etc but I'd still want to right about what interests me rather than boosting a keyword. Is...
