Do you write on HubPages for the money, or for your own enjoyment?
Or maybe even neither! What's your reason for writing at HubPages?
I do it for the enjoyment, I have not seen much money nor do I think I ever will. But I still keep writing because its fun for me.
Both. Some of my hubs were created PURELY for my enjoyment. . .and you know what? My readers seem to like THOSE hubs the best!
Really, I won't write hubs that I don't enjoy putting together - but I find that the prospect that I might make some money from doing so only makes me do a better job of it.
Both. I enjoy writing, but lately I've been trying to do a few things to bring up the money a lot, such as creating a website, blog, rss feed, and by going onto Xomba. Hopefully it'll pay off.
I write on HubPages because I want to help people in some way. I try to inspire people with my hubs, or write something informative. When I write about something in my life I hope that there will be at least one reader that gains something from the experiences I have had.
I used to write on other non-paying blogsites, but I really like the HubPages community and the support you get as well as the connections and friends you make.
I do think it is fun to see how much you have made everyday, but far more interesting is to see how many people have read each post. It let's me know which posts and topics are most interested in and so it helps me to refine my own writing.
I love writing on HP because I enjoy writing and like to see my hubs published. I wish I could eventually see some money for my efforts, but I dont know enough about SEO and backlinking. Everyone on the forums here are so friendly and helpful and I have learned such a lot in the four months that I have been here.
Hubpages made it really easy for me to start to get my feet wet writing online content. It's ridiculously easy to set up pages, so for me as a new writer there's some instant gratification to writing and immediately seeing an article be published.
I got into Hubpages in order to get into writing, which I don't always necessarily enjoy and I think long-term it would be nice to make a little extra income, but I can't say that I'm necessarily expecting it. Instead I'm thinking of it as a kind of blogging-internship where it's easy to get feedback on work, figure out what works well and what doesn't with very little consequence either way.
I'm enjoying Hubpages so far, and haven't made any money, so I suppose my present experience answers the question for me. Enjoyment!
Originally I joined mainly to experiment with simple webpage design with a view to maybe one day developing my own websites. Maybe also to eventually make money.
I soon found however, that the main appeal for me was simply the pleasure of writing, and hopefully giving some small pleasure to others when they read something I've written. It's really quite nice to get compliments for the first time in your life on work that you've created.
Just 4 days ago I wrote a hub on this very subject, trying to analyse the various reasons why people write on HubPages.
If you read it, hope you agree with the reasons I give for writing on this site.
I do it for my own enjoyment. I love the community here and I enjoy having a place to post my writing and get feedback.
At the moment its purely for enjoyment...as spending some time on HubPages for me is like spending time on a massage chair after a hectic day
Of course, in the long run I would be happy to earn something out of my writing if I could...but till then, I'm just having some relaxed fun!! Cheers!
I write for enjoyment- the pleasure of creating something others may enjoy, the discipline of researching, writing, designing and putting it altogether and the pleasure of getting feedback from fellow creators.
As Jessie J says... its not about the money, money, money...
I guess it would have to be for the enjoyment because I don't really make any money off of Hubpages!
I do write on HubPages for both. Although, I do not get the google AdSense yet.
I am here at hubpages only for my own enjoyment. It is an outlet for my emotions,feelings and experiences. The interaction with other fellow hubbers is a delight as their feedback and comments are very valuable and it also gives a chance to make real good friends.
HubPages keeps my writing up to speed, I try to write every day, if not on Hubpages in my projects.It is for me an enjoyment, not a monetary gain.
Money? What money? Someday in 2012 when the world is about to end anyway. So Yeah it's for fun!
I would say both. I started writing for fun, and I'm currently not making any money off of it but the prospect of making money from something I love doing is pretty neat.
Bit of both, but, personally, I attained neither. Anyway, for the more professional hubbers, "ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR AND HUBS"
i write on hubpages to get and recieve feedback about my writting
Both, actually. I mean, I'm not rolling in the dough because I'm pretty new, so Obviously i do it for the pleasure. But I do have my affiliates - iTunes, amazon, Google, etc. so sure, a bit of money would be nice on the side.
But obviously, I'm doing it for the fun of writing and sharing knowledge, and getting to know fellow anime fans.
I used to be able to say both for the money and because I enjoyed it. Now it's just for the money. Writing seems like a chore anymore, hopefully that will change because I used to have so much fun with HubPages.

How do you maintain a positive attitude and not give up on writing at HubPages?With the recent google changes, the virus alerts, and the viewer drops, how can a person stay upbeat and positive writing on here? I am beginning to question this.

I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs featured, which again seemed ok. Now magically overnight, I have all these codes now...

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...
