    Do you write to earn money or because you enjoy it?

    I haven't made much money here on Hubpages but I keep coming back to the site because I enjoy reading other peoples' hubs here and writing my own. I just wonder if money is a motivating factor for others or do you write for pleasure/as a hobby. Maybe it is a bit of both?

    For me, it is a way to share my travels and experiences. If I get a bit of money from it, I am double happy. Writing is like painting with words.

      Painting with words is a great analogy. Thanks for taking the time to answer my question elayne :-)

    Here at HP, I write for the enjoyment I get from writing.

    I'm not making any money currently, and don't mind it that way.
    Here is a place for me to write what interests me and to hone my skills.
    So yeah, I do it as a hobby.

      It is the same for me and I learn a lot about writing from reading other hubs. Thanks for taking the time to answer this question.

    I am still figuring out how to retire on my earnings here ; - D  If I do figure it out, you will be the first to hear the details of my discovery.  Meantime, I call it creative self-expression.
