    I used to give up Hubpages but now I am back. How can you keep the motivation to use Hubpages?

    The reason why I left because I could not get any revenue from my hubs and Adsense kept rejected my application. I lost the motivation of using Hubpages last year.

    The reason why I come back is the PageRank on my Hubpage. It is surprisingly good. That makes me to come back.

    So, what is your motivation of keeping your Hubpages up?

    I gave up an adsense, but I thoroughly enjoyed writing hubs about things that interest me. As long as you keep the content to your interests, blogging can actually be pretty therapeutic. Eventually adsense accepted my application. I still haven't really made any money out of it yet, but I still love writing hubs. I feel like I'm doing something for myself.

    I'm new so I haven't yet experienced burn-out or any let downs yet. I think what will keep me motivated is I love to write and people here love to read (and leave comments as opposed to at my blogs, etc). I also think the Hubpage criteria for featured hubs is making me a better writer. I have to shoot for a higher standard which, I think, improves all of my skills.

    welcome back....It has become an issues of late, writers are confused and frustrated with HP and ALL the changes. I started writing  2 years ago ( on this site ) as a way to release and share ideas and thoughts with others, not for profit as the goal. I have worked my way up to level 8 commentator, however HP ( even though they notified me of this 5 months ago has yet to note it on my homepage ) being I reached this level means I must have done something correct..however..of late HP has unpublished/ questioned my material and authenticity of originality...and stated quality of my work was unacceptable...so I at this time am questioning myself and my writes...so I have  chosen to go on " hiatus "...enjoy your summer....

    I have been a member of Hubpages for more than a year already and to be honest, I am not enrolled in any of its earnings program yet, though I am planning to enroll soon.

    What keeps me motivated in writing in this site is not the money I can get from writing, but the followers and the feedback I get from the readers of my articles. It is fulfilling to get compliments in your writings and I guess this is what made me to go on. Moreover, what I was after was the idea of "self- expression". I always wanted to express myself and Hubpages is one of the ways I can make it possible. Finally, I don't have any other hobbies except for reading, writing, eating and surfing the net. I realized I can capitalize on these hobbies, in order to satisfy myself.

    My motivation to be here? Hublove and improving my writing skills.

    The money and any of the SEO rules for getting traffic, I found less interesting than meeting all of these amazing writers and like minded souls.

    I'm simply a beginner and writing here, helps me in polishing my skills, meeting people from all over the world and I'm gaining a lot more self confidence as a writer due to the many lovely comments I got.

    I'm here for almost 2 years and I try to ignore the many changes on Hubpages, I don't like and I take advantage of the changes I do like. I've always been in it for the passion of writing.

    If money, traffic and numbers is your goal here, I understand why you left in the first place. I make about 2 dollars a month:-)

    Great to have you back, I write at my best and try to do better if needed,  writing here with such a friendly community makes it so much simpler, always helpful  in answering any question. To keep your Hubpage sup, write the best hubs you can, and follow their word count, add a  video, submit quality and quantity. If follow the rules as applied  writing here can be fun and fruitful

    If I had a functioning computer, I would be writing more than I do, and answering questions and involving myself in forums.  The struggle to simply get published supersedes my partaking in Hubpages.  I wish I had more freedom so that I could write more and share more of my inward ideas.

    i gave up HP too 1 year ago but i came back because i received some emails from HP team. Then, i decided to join the 30days hub challenge. I did get more followers but less income. However, after the hub challenge, my earning increased and dropped just this year, May 2013. Since that it was due to panda and google requirement., Anyway, I didn't give up yet. As long I can see some 20-30cents per day, I will carry on writing at HP. What about you?
