      Normally I write for fun. Switching over to writing on this site will be the first time I have written for money.

        That is great besides chat about you also get paid there as well. I like both sites in my opinion.

      Both honestly. I do like to write, but I also appreciate making money from it as well.

      It’s definitely more fun for me. I’ve always been writing since I was little, but it’ll be nice to make some on the side money from this.

      I think most of us writers are in it for the fun, for the most part given that it’s pretty rare to make much of anything for at least the first couple years of writing. It seems you have to work your way up through experience before you get much $ coming in, so I’d say it’s more of my passion for it than anything, but of course writing being a dream career for me (and many others here), I’d say the money becomes quite an important aspect over time. Fun first, though! Definitely fun first.

      For me its a little bit of both. I love writing its definitely a passion of mine but at the same time I need the money that I make from writing.

      I write because it’s my passion and I’ve a deep interest in writing. Basically I’m addicted to writing it could be online or offline, but hey, writing gives me more motivation and I enjoy it more when I’m earning money too 🙂

        I’m a stay at home mom too!! Writing is a great way to stay with your kids and make a living if you know how to write. some people think its easy and that anyone can do it, but there;s a lot that goes into the process. 🙂

      I am new to this site, so i am learning as i go. but i write for both, when you write for fun there is that personality that comes out. when you write for money you work harder to achieve that personality and hoping you bring money through your art.

      Pretty much in it for the fun and getting to connect to awesome people. I am a stay at home mother and it’s make me feel like I have friends I can visit with anytime day or night.

        Me too! I think my job requires so much isolation that it makes me eager to connect and meet people online (like here!) too. Also because you can always find like-minded people online, no matter how unique your likes/beliefs/goals are, there’s someone online with similarities. In our own personal worlds, we can’t always connect with people like that, in my opinion. The truth is (and this might just make me sound really pathetic LOL) some of the friendships I’ve made online are of better quality than many of my personal ones! Crazy!

        I feel the same way, I don’t click easily with people in real life. I have a couple close friends, but I’d much rather have friends online with the same similarities and mindset.

      I choose my topics for the fun of it but I make sure that if I publicize anything, it goes on a money-making website. I love writing so much that sometimes I’ll get into this mode where I have to write or else. However, it’s important that my words have meaning in some way or other and that I’m compensated for the work I put into it. The reason I love this website in particular is that I immediately see points for my work, which I translate into money. There is a business aspect to what I write. However, I won’t write anything that’s absolutely not working for me. I have this firm idea that I will not post garbage just to make money. I take my writing seriously, even if it is fun writing.

      I want to write for money, so can any one guide me? I want to become content, blog, ghost writer…

        If you want to ghost write check out hirewriters.com or zerys.com. The pay is low at first, but as you continue to write you get paid more. Some clients will even request you to write for them on a regular basis. I write regularly for 3 different clients on hirewriters- its a good way to earn steady money, but it takes about a month or so before you start seeing good money. 🙂

      I don’t know. There are times when I don’t want to write, but I believe when wanting to make money you have to be consistent. Also, I can’t write when I am in mood to. If I force myself, I end up writing a real bad copy, which I can’t be proud of.

      I guess I primarily do this for fun but, honestly I do it also for the dough. I mean, if you love writing and sharing things with the others, why not making some money from it? I think it’s fair! Imagine if I’ve done this with Facebook and Twitter. I guess I would be as rich as Mark Zuckerberg by now!!! (Well, maybe not that much, lol.)

        I do think we all would be rich if we got paid on them sites. I think this site is way better than any site on the web.

      i write for fun and for money 😉 practically speaking if we are sharing our own thoughts on other social media sites for free why not try to share it to the world and get paid for it? in that way we can share our thoughts and at the same time earn from it 😉

      I agree, writing is a lot of fun- but why not get paid for it if you can. I have 2 boys under 3 years old, writing lets me make enough so I can stay home with them. Plus, i love hearing what other people think about a topic I post.:)

      I write for fun, just for the enjoyment of it. A few times I’ve tried to do sponsored posts, but I get so stressed out about them coming out perfect that the fun is sapped right out! So now I stick mostly to the “just for fun” ones! 🙂

      It’s actually fun when you make money from writing. Content is king, and unique content always finds visitors. Earning passive income on few sites is lot more fun than receiving an upfront payment. The money is a mere trickle, but it keeps coming.

      I write simply for fun. It is my hobby in particular.

    • #27495

      I do both way. I am a Writer by heart and love words that can flow from me to computer or paper.

      Writing makes me dig deep for my creativity.

      As I mentioned before, I write for both reasons.

      The money side, when I write for it, it becomes hard to be creative, and writers block kicks in majorly. I don’t know why, but I am geussing that it is because it is more of a deadline type thing. You have to write a lot more then just your every day writing. So it can be stressing, and you fell a little bad if the day of earnings from the writings are on the low side.

      I will never stop writing, and the more I keep on trucking, the better I become!

      I, like others here, write for fun. Though, I will admit, my forte is fiction. Ultimately I feel it’s always good to enable ourselves to follow our passions. We, as writers, are lucky we have an opportunity to support ourselves with our passion. Not everyone has that, sadly.

      writing is an outlet that will help you being from rant or anything. I write to express my feelings and now I have learned that writing can bring you money. It is not that big but it is good.

      Answer does lies in the question itself. If you want to make money then you need to be good at writing otherwise if it is for fun you need not do research on that topic and right. Is that what I say is right.

      Not to sound too indecisive, but I write for both fun and money. I agree with just about everyone that it can be tough to make some cash from writing, but it can be done. On the other hand, I’ve always got some labors of love hanging around.
