    Do you have a website dedicated to writing and if so, what motivated you to create one?

    Are you marketing your freelancing, a book, or other product?

    I market everywhere I can and do it like crazy! My main author blog is full of all kinds of resources for writers (like writing prompts, etc.) As an author of over 30 books and the chief editor of six magazines, there is a lot of experience I've been able to put down to help other writers on their path. Anyone who is interested can find links to my main author blog, my books and my magazines (writers welcome!) on my profile.

    My hubpage is my only website dedicated to writing. I have yet to be published anywhere other than here. As I type this, I realize I need to get the ball rolling! I have a lot of great ideas for short stories and poems, but find that life gets in the way more than I'd like. Let this be the year I do something about that!

    I have a health blog, if that counts. I was motivated to create that blog because my ads were disabled on HP after publishing two of those articles. When I checked Google, it was okay for me to place ads on my blog.

    I write here at hubpages because I believe writing is a creative muscle that needs excerised. Beyond that, it is a passion that when I go too long without indulging in, I feel "all stuffed up."

    Here, I get to write and be inspired by others. What could be better for a creative person?

    I do have a website about writing - earn income from writing - and I created it to help others discover the many, many forms of freelance writing there are available.  I learned a lot myself actually in creating that website even though I've been writing freelance for quite a long time. 

    Words are literally everywhere and there are so many opportunities available out there that many writers may have never even thought of.  I build that website a few months ago and dedicated solely to those of us who are looking for ways to earn a living through writing. 

    I also have a personal portfolio which I use to promote not only writing services but other projects I do also like web and graphic design.

    I have a website and feel it is an important marketing tool.  It has two purposes.  One is to gain exposure for my books, articles and services.  The second is to provide information to help other authors gain exposure for their material and expertise.  I do this by providing access to sites with information related to marketing opportunities/information, tips from other authors through articles, personal web pages and author interviews.  The interview questions are centered directly to each author.

    I actually don't but that is because I am afraid that somebody would steal some of my Writing. I want to create a book someday about my Life along with Manga but not exactly at the step of sharing this much to the World yet...

    I have my main blog that I use for connecting with other authors and for self-promotion. I plan to self-publish my first novel within the next couple of years and it never hurts to get your name out there as soon as you can.

    I have a website that advertises me writing services and abilities.  I provide samples, prices, and everything else a perspective customer might like to know.  I was motivated to create it by greed...  That is, I wanted to earn more money!  It's still only a hobby, much like hubbing, but on a good month I can earn eight or nine hundred dollars just by writing in the evening after a long day.

    Ususally it's more like a few hundred a month, however.  But I don't do it strictly for the money, I do it because I love to write about...  Anything!

    I do have a blog dedicated to writing (Writer Worries), as well as a blog for my book series (The Homemaker Helper Series). In addition to my blogs I write here on Hubpages, Triond (this one has been a little frustrating at times, but they have a lower payment threshold which is nice), Helium (I am earning a few pennies a week on this one, but also haven't submitted much on it lately), Ezine Articles and a few others. I signed up to several just to test the waters and see where the most income would come from. So far I have to say HubPages is the one that provides the most passive income.

    I just read a book on marketing e-books and the advice was to spread the word and sign up to several sites; it is much the same for articles in my opinion. The more exposure a person has, the better chance of earning from it.

    My hubpage is dedicated to writing. I've been writing for about nine years and I've picked up a few things. I just like to try and give new writers, and some people who thought they could never be writers, some little tips that I've found that have really helped me over the years. I also give writing exercises to help get those creative juices flowing! WRITE ON!
