    I'm just making conversation, so tell me. Why do you Hub? Is it the community? The extra money? Something to do? What? smile

      Money. big_smile

      The forum arguments keep me from getting too bored with working online. And - this is the biggest drawback of making a living on the Internet as far as I am concerned - the boredom of sitting on my ass in front of a computer all day long....

        The thing about boredom and working online is pretty much my reason for both writing Hubs and coming to the forums (although I like to think of it as "debating", rather than "arguing").  Besides, earning a little extra from doing something I like doing is pretty nice.  Other people do crossword puzzles and don't earn a penny doing it.  smile

    For me? I would love to quit my day job. But mostly I think the willingness of the others to teach is what keeps me coming back.

    I had to have something to do while unemployed.  hmm
    Seriously, though, that is only part of it.  smile  I have gone about my life in a backward way, sorta.  Writing was always a goal of mine rather than the 'way of life' I wanted it to be.  Now I"m changing that. smile  I'm here on HubPages and Hubbing in order to learn the best style of writing for me and to find my way out in the writing world.  Where do I want to go?  What do I want to do?  What do I want to write?  What do I want to write about?  These questions and many more will be answered by the time I decide HubPages is no longer the right fit for me. (if that ever happens! lol)

    First and foremost I do it because I enjoy it. I also like to get my thoughts and any information out there that I feel should be passed on that could be helpful in any way. And I also enjoy the fellow hubbers that I have had the pleasure of following and meeting on the forums. Sharing thoughts and ideas with others is the main reason.

    I love writing, I love giving people advice and the money is better than a kick in the teeth.  I loved reading ya'all's reasons.  The community here is fantastic.

    I do it because it gives me an opportunity to talk about a broad variety of things, unlike my own .com's that follow niches (I can't go off topic due to ranking/SEO). Aside from that, I think the additional income will be helpful in paying for my servers, and perhaps a bit of overhead someday to get gadgets and stuff that I like.

    PS. I also do it because I love writing, and I chat a lot.
