    Do you ever feel bad if thinking about money when writing a hub?

    Do you sometimes miss the beauty of doing something for the sake of it - or is it pretty clear to you that writing here is just a business like any other...

    I have never thought about making money. I just make it..If you are writing hubs with a view to making money A. You will never make any..B you will not enjoy the experience. C You will churn out endless page fillers..

    You know, for me this is a mixture of both. I KNOW that I can make money writing on Hubpages. Sometimes I just get great ideas for Hubs, and I write them, then publish them without thinking "Oh how much money am I getting from these hubs". Then there are other times when I do think "How many hubs do I need to write in order to cash out this month? To pay bills etc..

    I basically write because I love to, AND because I make money from it. But this isn't the only website I write for and make money from. So, for me writing is split between writing for fun, and for money.

    Speaking for myself, I write because I love it, but I never feel guilty for thinking (and hoping) that I'll also make some money at it.

    While I seldom write hubs centered around products, I have no qualms about writing a promotional hub. Even this kind of hub takes time and thought and creativity, and there is certainly nothing wrong with taking pride in doing it well.
