    If you won the lottery would you still write for HubPages?

    If you no longer needed the income would you stay with HubPages?

    Depends on how much I won. If I won millions, probably not unless I was bored.

    Yes.  In fact, I'd probably write a lot more if I didn't have 65% of my waking hours devoted to work and commuting.

    I would definitely still wrIte for HP.  I would write MORE because I would no longer be working and could devote my time to the pursuits that I enjoy like writing.  I'm hoping that this will actually happen.  I am a member of the office pool.  We buy tickets every week.

    I would. I'd probably even write more because I'd have the time to do it. I love the social aspects of this site and I feel like it gives me a voice. smile

    I would write more! I write as a hobby and would love to have the time to write on a more regular basis. I would love to be able to research and write 3 quality hubs a day!

    Most likely I would.  If I wrote on hub pages for money I would have starved to death a long time ago.

    I would because it's really fun and social and the people are intelligent and like to write and share.

    Yes and I would write more because I would have all the time I wanted to devote more time to it. This is a great place to share hubs and have contact with others.  Right now it would be really nice to earn good money on Hubpages, but the lottery would be much better LOL.

    Oh sure. I don't write here for money, I just enjoy having a place to publish my work and get a few comments on it.  I have made no money here in 2 years.

    Yes I would.  I like writing and publishing my work on the internet and getting feedback on it.  Hubpages is fun!

    My answer is YES!  I write for the joy of writing.  My dream is to be able to pursue the arts on a full-time basis while I work on my PHD in Human Science. Wining the lottery  would help me realize this goal but I am not going to wait for it to happen.

    "Money" has yet to enter my Hub-picture.....to any huge degree.  However, if, for instance I was making a ton of money here......and won the lottery......YES, of course I'd keep writing. I'd have the privilege and opportunity to write MORE.  Nothing would please me more than to hire people to do all my work while I drifted off into the sunset ...writing.....writing  and writing.  I would write if there was not a single penny involved.........Great question, carol!!

    OK I'll go against almost all the answers so far and say NO! If I won the lottery and had enough money to go travelling and do what I wanted to do then I would likely not  have time to write on hubpages any more!

    Oh yea, I would definitely keep writing. I don't write  necessarily to make money. When I first joined Hub Pages, I did so in order to read the articles. I found Hub Pages through Google when I was doing some research. As a result, I found Hub Pages to be alot like potato chips, you know........you can't read just one. In time  I found myself toying with the idea of writing an article myself. As most of you have probably noticed, one article seems to lead to another. I often found myself dealing with 2 or 3 articles bouncing around inside my head, like a pin ball. I just needed to sit down and put it in writing. In short, if you need to know something, there is probably an article in Hub Pages that will tell you what you need to know. So, money or no money, I'll still be here writng and reading.
    Great question, and by the way Carol,  it is your mother !!!  I'm sure you know what I am referring to.

    I would!! I love writing and would never stop doing it because I got rich. In fact being rich would let me write full time and hone my true skills. I would write to my heart's content. smile This is an awesome question, Carol. I would totally focus MORE on my writing, not having to work a full time job. Oh my, I could write books SO fast... lol. Don't you agree?
