    Is writing your hobby or your career?

    Am not just talking about hubpages...anything you write, do you do it as a career or just as a hobby? and would you or are you doing it full-time?

    Firstly it is my passion. I cannot live without it. Although I know I am not even equal to other hubbers. I found myself dwarf before them. I like to spend many hours in reading and writing, but it is not my career. I want to become a good teacher, who can help to explore student's hidden talents.

    I'm just doing it part time at moment, and it is a hobby. But it's a hobby which I would love to convert into my career, at least part of my career.

    Writing as a career is rather fulfilling as far as creative expression is concerned, but it has it own challenges too.

    For me it is a career, and it is full-time. I am very happy with where my career is going, and certainly wouldn't change anything about it. Before it was my career, writing has always been something in which I knew I could excel, and that it could one day be worth something to me. Thankfully, I was right, and I'm one of the few people I know who loves to get up and start work every day.

    A hobby for me.  I feel the need to exercise the creative after a long day of work.

    Definitely a hobby for me.  I am not really a writer.  I started writing on Hubpages just to see if I could earn money writing, and to my pleasant surprise.. I can!   Not a lot of money, only $100 every two or three months.. it still amazes me!  I write only on Hubpages and I have a couple of blogs on Bloggers.  I like Hubpages because HP gives us so many ways to earn money, plus the community is very helpful and friendly.

    I wish it was my career, but I can't afford to quit my job and take it on full-time.

    For me it's a bit of both. I love writing as a hobby but I am working towards making it, at least an extra income, but I'd love it to be my main work.

    Writing for me is a hobby. I love what I do full-time and I would like to keep writing only a hobby.

    At this point in my life, writing is my career, and I'm pretty happy with it thus far. The world is changing and the way people earn a living is changing along with it, so I'm lucky that I've been able to take what started out five years ago as a way to deal with personal tragedy and a total hatred for my former place of employment, and turn it in to a fledgling freelance business.

    And out of all of that I started my business KeyWords Media, where I write webcopy for business sites and blogs and of course I do a lot of ghostwriting for other freelancers.
