How many articles would you write for Hubpages if there was no revenue involved?
The same as I do now as I have not seen any money. I think my total revenue is about $10--been here two years. So money is not even on the menu for me here.
I've never written for the money, so I would probably write about the same.
I agree with you, the revenue and the writing go hand and hand; they compliment each other, smile.
I'm with angela_michelle--I'd probably write about the same amount. I use the statistics and money as "incentive" to keep writing and I enjoy watching the numbers change, sometimes in mysterious ways, but I can't make a living at it.
I'd write the same amount of hubs which is easy for me to say since I have never signed up for googleAdsence nor have I ever earned a cent from Hubpages. I write hubs as an outlet to become a bettter writer and connect with people either to help or exchange insight on subjects of similar interest. My book on the other hand is something I did write along with my Examiner articles as a revenue stream.
Now that's writers-dedication. I totally like writing, I've always written something like diaries, journals, websites, and now articles. I just haven't written a book as of yet. It's nice to get a nice chunk of change for a hobby that I already do.
The same amount that I have written. Money isn't why I am here. It is more of an online journal for me. Even if no one ever read any of my articles, I would be fine with it. I write when I have time, which lately, I haven't had the time. I travel a lot and keep a journal when I do. This is another place for me to keep my stories of travels, thoughts, ideas, and things that I am interested in for others that might want to read them.
I write in order to clear my own cache. I've always said that. It is my therapy, so as long as I'm writing, I remain somewhat "normal". And that's a good thing for society LOL
I write articles to promote my blogs, so any money I get from them is just an added bonus.
As far as my blogs go, however, if I wasn't getting any money from them, I'd probably only have 2 instead of all 6. The main reason I have so many, and plan on adding a few more, is because by this time next year I want to be making a living off of them. If that wasn't possible, I'd probably only have time for the 2 I care about the most.
I used to write the same type of articles on my website with my regular updates. I only heard about hubpages about 2 months ago, so I would still be offering the same pieces for free.
The revenue isn't that important to be fair, it's the community that make it worth all the while. I haven't yet experienced worthwhile revenue on hubpages, as I've not really tried hard enough, but I definitely know that it has played a part in my decision to become insanely active here.
I wouldn't mind earning money, but I would write thousands even without remuneration.
Discussing ideas, learning and sharing are far more important to me.
This is perhaps the most exciting time in the history of humanity. This is the time of Revelation -- the great battle between good and evil. This is the time of great freedoms colliding with great tyranny as America is dismantled by the Power Elite for their selfish purposes.
To be able to learn more is so richly rewarding. And to be able to contribute to the learning of others is also more important to me than money.
Sharing things like a film I saw last week all make life worthwhile...
Unlimited hope and promise for the future. And for spiritual freedom and growth.
I have written 11 without receiving a penny and I would gladly write more because all you wonderful people here are really motivating. BUT I haven't got a straight answer about what the deal is with me and that frustrates me tremendously so I'm thinking of ending this lovely affair soon.
Probably three or four a year tops. Basically whenever I remembered I had a Hubpages account and felt the need to write.
I'm up to, what, 10 or so now? I guess that answers that question!
Well i started writing on hub pages without knowing that it actually is a source to earn and now that i know, i still didn't opted for that. I write articles when i get time about the feelings i really want to express. So for me it was never money purpose to be on hub pages.
I'm pretty opinionated so I'd probably write 1-2 a week. I like the idea of putting out articles on subject matters important to me.
I just started about a few blinks ago and won't be signing up for adsense or anything else. I need to write to clear some clutter and learn a bit in the process.
There is no money or revenue involved for me at all on the hub pages. I have a job, and I'm here entirely for FUN. There's a lot of folks who are merely here for FUN. Keep on hubbing
I am giggling a little Ann. I have not read any replies yet, so an untainted comment. I am thinking of 'revenuers' and home stills. I lived in West Virginia during my Huckleberry Finn days around middle school age. My best bud, 'Pig-Pen' and I (Toothpick) were walking along and discovered a still in the hills once. I could stretch a 'yarn' making an afghan from that. hmmmmm . . .
Seems one day two young'uns were a walk'n along a trail heading nowhere tossing rocks there and here. The talk was not of lasses, more so of adventures and which mountain to climb or crick to canoe next . . . and suddenly from behind a live oak tree stood a tall wonder of a man. He had a beard near three feet, a hat of crumpled deer skin, and a double OT 16 gauge starring down upon them . . .
So, to answer the question it depends on how much fun one is having . . .

I often see forum posts about how the site is 'dying', or asking why people would continue writing here after they've earned success on their own websites. So I thought I'd start a thread about WHY people still write here. To start, here are some of my reasons (I haven't written much in the past...

How long did it take you to make your first pay out and how many articles did you write until you did? I am only curious.
