Are you writing because you actually enjoy it or are you doing it to make money?

    I both enjoy it and am certainly interested in the financial aspect of it as it has monetary potential

    I love writing and I think this site is a great way to share information and gain valuable feedback. Now that is worth wayyyyy more than any financial gain I could possibly attain.

    Both.  I've always wanted to write a book but could never finish.  But with hubpages, the articles are short and I can write about different topics.  The monetary aspect gives me the motivation to continuously learn and grow to be a better internet writer.  Passive income through writing is my ultimate goal.

    Writing is a joy and a passion......making money from it was  totally unexpected,,, nice but, in the end, not important at all.

    I enjoy writing and HOPE to make money at it someday. I have a 'day job' and make a living at that... but writing is my dream.

    I write as i enjoy doing it. Not for money. But if it comes along the way its nice. Who does not like money anyway?
    But for me writing is mainly for emotional peace. So i write for my own emotional satisfaction not for money.

    Mostly for the joy and because I love to help people. But I want to make money doing it. Why? So I can do it more!
