    Do you enjoy writing anyway, without the money?

    I get a real spiritual release from writing. Just for fun - because work writing is so formatted. What about you?

    Writing has been and is entertaining, cathartic, and healing for me. I fear that if it were my sole livelihood, financially, I might be a pauper...smile...but, as it stands, as my emotional and spiritual livelihood, it has rendered me rich, indeed!

    i'm not even sure if i'm making any money so i had better enjoy just writing. to me it's about getting my views out so the money thing would be a second thought.

    I like writing for sharing & skills experiences.
    I joined HP although I hadn't known that I can get money.
    And till now I don't have any affiliate.
    My pleasure when someone likes or corrects my thoughts.
    Anyway, I submitted for Google Ad sence account before 3 weeks, and still waiting for response.
    No problem, If I can get money from my writings.

    Absolutely.  I would write even if no one read my writing but me.  It's necessary for my well-being to write.  An audience and some money are simply added benefits.

    I'm glad to hear that you all enjoy writing, so we will see some interesting hubs coming out in 2011!  And writing I see has enriched more than the wallet.

    I'm a natural born motor mouth with strong opinions and lots to say about just about everything so it's a release for me.

    I venture that anyone who writes just because they expect to earn money from it, and for no other reason, would never become very good at it.   Writing is a passion to communicate; to communicate to others, to communicate with your own soul.   If you happen to be able to earn money by it, well, that's simply a bonus.

    I love writing.  I write just for fun, and I publish on HubPages just for fun as well. I haven't yet ventured into finding out how to make money on HubPages, but will probably be doing that soon.  Money is tight these days, so maybe I can earn a little through here.
