I'm just making conversation, so tell me. Why do you Hub? Is it the community? The extra money? Something to do? What?
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.
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.
Seriously, though, that is only part of it. 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. 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.
To make money and provide some useful pages to refer people from ebook products I sell!
i do it, cos life has changed and i need intelligent stimulus sandwiched inbetween the endless laundry and cooking

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

Why do you write hubs? Money, fame, enjoy writing, personal cleansing?Writing hubs is a fantastic way for me to unwind after work, and at the same time have a third-party attributed value assigned to that writing, which lets me also fulfill some competitive aspect of my personality.Why do other...

For the newbies and experienced Hubpage members, it seems that it takes some work to stay alive on Hubpages. From writing hubs to answering questions to being on the forums, I do admit it is fun either way but it takes a lot of work.I know most experienced hubbers advise not to worry about...

Do any hubbers spend 40 hours a week (or more) writing and researching hubs? Does the effort pay off if the site is treated like a regular job?
