    I love the feedback I get from my Hubs. It is gratifying to know that not only do I enjoy writing, other people enjoy reading it.

    Mood, news article, personal interests, WTI (this week for the first time) It really depends day to day, but at the moment it's the 30/30 challenge as I don't want to fail smile

    The satisfaction of publishing my own work and at the same time earning gives me greater motivation to write for hub pages.

    My aha moment arrives for no reason, or a need to explain. My hubs reflect my interest. My initial reasons were to obtain feedback for a book I was writing. It was a positive collective creative process! I would recomment to others to seek feedback.

    The passion to write is both my inspiration and motivation.  My love of the art of words, all the interesting lines of phraseology, and the commonality of the passion to write are all pieces of the inspiration.  Reading material that is written from inspiration and passion is also a motivator to write.  Reading and writing are the limbs of language art.

    A couple of things.  First, having an audience is nice.  There is no motivation like feedback from people who have no particular reason to take time from their day to help you out.

    Secondly, having an obligation to keep your stats rising and to create new content for those kind enough to follow you is an impetus.

    And attracting new followers is an, um, attractive challenge.

    Actually myself.. I get depressed easily- writing is an easy outlet, and an easy escape, plus I do it also because the comments and feedback are so inspirational that I want to write more...

    The chance for others to read the words I have written and to give their feedback. Sharing what I have written with others makes me motivated the most.

    It's the opportunity to write a feature which occurs to me, which interests and intrigues and HAS to be written.
    I get an idea, any idea.  It takes hold, visually.  It forces itself on me (as a good idea!) and because writing for Hub Pages is so inviting, such a friendly writing-outlet, so beautifully simple to work 'inside', I know the idea can be developed.
    This knowledge is freedom.
    It's a creative outlet.
    It feels just great.

    It's a place where many other writers, thinkers, poets, communicators are doing the same thing and feeling the same way about this outlet; it is a community. 
    It is a supportive community.  A safe place to exchange ideas and opinions.
    It is not hard to 'operate', or technically beyond me.
    I love its simplicity.  And its availability.  And its transparency.

    And it has rewards, lots of them.

    So for these reasons I'm continually inspired to write on hubpages.

    If I am going to be honest, I should admit that Hubpages is a great way to get readers.  I'm a professional writer, so that is a big deal.  But I will gladly admit that I enjoy writing hubs, sharing what I've learned with other writers and those who are just getting into the craft.  I've always been a teacher, and this is a rich opportunity to do that.

    I enjoy working from home and writing is fun for me.  It would be great to be able to devote more time to hubs.

    Hubpages is to me a writers Gym, it keeps me mentally fit, allows me to exercise the brain muscle that really needs to look around at times, see what is going on.It prevents that nerdy condition some suffer called Writers Cramp.

    The Hubpagess, I get like yours.And I finally figure out how to publish one. Or have I,( still learning)

    I've always enjoyed writing and helping others, so that's why I was so glad that I could write articles for Hubpages that would do both!
    Whenever I publish a new Hub, it's always so exciting to put it together, add photos and polls. Plus, whenever someone comments on my Hub and says that it was interesting, or it has helped them, it makes me feel inspired to write more!

    i'd definitely say that the feedback always makes me happy, and willing to write more.

    Greed.  I like to see comments from my friends and to be told that I have written something that they enjoy.
    What else?
