I personally write for fun. I really like making money for it though. I like to write content that interests me and there for it makes it fun to me.
July 27, 2014 at 4:11 pm #6593
Ah, for fun. I don’t really blog, but I do write so mhm.
July 29, 2014 at 4:19 am #6754
Normally I write for fun. Switching over to writing on this site will be the first time I have written for money.
July 29, 2014 at 4:39 am #6757
That is great besides chat about you also get paid there as well. I like both sites in my opinion.
July 31, 2014 at 9:10 pm #7006
I write because I love it. I also write for money.
July 31, 2014 at 9:14 pm #7011
Both honestly. I do like to write, but I also appreciate making money from it as well.
August 2, 2014 at 8:45 am #7073
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.
August 7, 2014 at 9:47 pm #7505
That’s awesome I started writing when I was little too.
August 3, 2014 at 5:07 pm #7165
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.
August 7, 2014 at 9:46 pm #7504
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.
August 7, 2014 at 10:59 pm #7514
I really love writing now more than ever and being a stay at home mom.
August 8, 2014 at 12:15 am #7520
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 🙂
August 20, 2014 at 7:06 pm #9331
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. 🙂
August 9, 2014 at 1:43 am #7586
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.
August 9, 2014 at 12:53 pm #7605
Thanks for sharing everyone. I really like knowing what others think about writing.
August 12, 2014 at 1:51 am #8006
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.
August 12, 2014 at 2:44 am #8039
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!
August 12, 2014 at 2:52 pm #8078
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.
August 12, 2014 at 3:23 pm #8085
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.
August 14, 2014 at 5:36 am #8434
I want to write for money, so can any one guide me? I want to become content, blog, ghost writer…
August 20, 2014 at 7:04 pm #9330
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. 🙂
August 15, 2014 at 3:36 am #8579
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.
August 19, 2014 at 1:21 am #9070
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.)
August 19, 2014 at 1:41 am #9077
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.
August 20, 2014 at 1:19 am #9220
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 😉
August 20, 2014 at 7:01 pm #9329
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.:)
September 2, 2014 at 1:40 pm #10591
I definitely do it for both. We need the extra income, but I sincerely enjoy my job as a wordsmith 🙂
September 3, 2014 at 4:17 am #10650
Thanks for sharing everyone it is great to know why everyone likes to write. Keep them coming. 🙂
September 4, 2014 at 8:00 pm #10768
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! 🙂
July 27, 2015 at 7:36 am #25622
I am writing for fun but because I am writing, I am making money because I joined Blogjob.
July 31, 2015 at 10:46 am #25824
I write for fun and sharing with online world.I like earning and learning new methods and ways of maximizing my earning potential.
July 31, 2015 at 1:04 pm #25826
I actually do both. I write for fun, but I try to stick with engaging subjects so that I can increase followers and start making money through affiliates.
July 31, 2015 at 5:49 pm #25830
For fun and for money too, although without enjoying to write the supposed income would be…fade or …sad.
August 7, 2015 at 1:41 pm #26347
I write for fun but if I could make extra money through writing then nothing like it!
August 7, 2015 at 8:51 pm #26368
It is a great fun to write and it is a bonus if you will earn money for what you have written.
August 13, 2015 at 8:31 am #26852
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.
August 14, 2015 at 12:42 am #26911
I do prefer writing with fun as well as have an interest on it… earning or not.. I do really have daily journals. But why not choose those you earn while writing?
August 20, 2015 at 9:16 am #27464
I write simply for fun. It is my hobby in particular.
August 20, 2015 at 7:02 pm #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!
August 21, 2015 at 12:35 pm #27599
I write because I have something to share! I can’t say it is fun, but it offers me some self examination and self worth.
August 21, 2015 at 12:53 pm #27600
I write for fun and make share with the online world.
August 22, 2015 at 2:21 am #27671
I do it because I need the money to survive but I also enjoy writing & sharing my thoughts & knowledge with others.
August 22, 2015 at 10:03 am #27709
I write for fun but earning money doing something I enjoy is definitely a motivator!
August 23, 2015 at 4:36 am #27787
Writing is stress buster for me. I am an introvert, I talk easily through my writing.Earning money through writing is like icing on the cake.
August 28, 2015 at 2:13 pm #28364
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.
August 29, 2015 at 12:24 pm #28488
both…on my blog for fun and on writing sites for money!
August 29, 2015 at 10:12 pm #28569
Both, but really just to practice and make sure my writing skills stay sharp. I prefer a pen and paper, but I am getting used to typing!
August 30, 2015 at 7:42 pm #28733
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.
August 31, 2015 at 9:00 pm #28872
Hello guys I really love writing to earn some money and I think that will give me very well here on this blog site
September 1, 2015 at 5:44 am #28914
I started writing because i really needed the money. Now I am writing because I really began to love doing that and of course because of the money.
September 2, 2015 at 10:36 am #29024

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.
September 5, 2015 at 8:45 am #29418
I write for both, money and fun to be engaged with community members
September 5, 2015 at 11:46 am #29435
I write too, for both money and fun to be shared with community members.
September 12, 2015 at 6:59 am #30771
I write for fun but earning something from having fun is quite okay.
September 12, 2015 at 9:19 am #30783
i write mainly for fun but i also write for feed back and see how can i improve my poems i do how ever have one softback book and 2 e books both available on amazon
if you buy one and write a review i will give you a free ebook
September 13, 2015 at 9:11 am #30923
I truly write for both fun and money since money is fun
September 13, 2015 at 9:14 am #30925
may be I can have a theory on what you’re saying.best friend erlymccheaven
September 13, 2015 at 9:15 am #30926
You don’t have to wait, you know. You could start writing right now. You don’t need a degree or anything best friend julie
September 14, 2015 at 3:29 am #31114
I would love to make money from my writing but I do not have much time or skill to write for serious sites. I write to meet new people and because I find writing therapeutic and soothing.
September 16, 2015 at 1:09 pm #31887
i am in it for the money; i have fun elsewhere like i go swimming.
September 17, 2015 at 5:25 am #32113
Can I choose both? I am writing for fun because making money in writing is fun.
September 18, 2015 at 9:50 am #32351
If it’s not fun, why do it? Still, money is nice.
I’ve written items purely for the cash and they are never as good as the articles I wanted to write just because.
September 21, 2015 at 10:54 pm #33145
I love writing and earning money
September 23, 2015 at 9:37 pm #33549
I write for both. I am having fun but it would be better to get paid too.
September 29, 2015 at 2:56 am #34737
I write for money although I do have fun sometimes while writing.
October 25, 2015 at 12:18 pm #42169
I want to improve my economical condition so its great place for me.
October 26, 2015 at 2:12 am #42304
October 26, 2015 at 8:36 am #42411
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.
October 27, 2015 at 8:31 am #42658
I enjoy writing so I love it when I spend some of my free time writing on things I am interested with. Making money with it is a very good bonus, too!
November 2, 2015 at 4:41 am #44167
November 2, 2015 at 4:47 am #44169
If only more things that were fun would pay money.
April 23, 2016 at 3:53 pm #84220
We’re truly blessed to be doing something we enjoy and get paid to do it 🙂
April 24, 2016 at 3:45 am #84314
I write for fun, money is a bonus 🙂
April 24, 2016 at 10:13 pm #84543
Only for money… Nah…! I write whatever I think, not just for money as I wrote two blogs yesterday while the limit has been reached….
April 24, 2016 at 11:44 pm #84568
I only write for fun. Having extra income is just a bonus for me. I just want to actively participate in this kind of site.
September 12, 2015 at 9:21 am #30784
yes me too i really love getting my feelings out of my head and sharing them with others I write mainly christian ones but i do have about thirty not christian ones
