I have been writing fo 15 plus years now, but have always held a job to pay the bills. This time, after my husband left, I have been job hunting to no avail...so have reverted beck to my writing. Trying this site for some extra cash. Every little bit helps and I can do it while the kids are home. When they are asleep, I write for www. associatedcontent.com I don't want to have to write just to pay the bills. I want to write for the lifestyle it affords and I love doing it. I can do it for 10 hours a day.

Both, I need the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. I am passionate about information technology and it can be a great income that comes out of it and that's great cuz I'm passionate about money and what it buys me.

Sadly, my job that I am at now is simply to pay the bills, however I'm hoping that I can use my writing to pay my bills one day. I think that this website is a good way to get people to see your name. Also, you can get a feel for what people are talking about and gain ideas for articles.

want to work Passionately but cant do the same because cant get a job which I would like . For me financial markets are my big pasion but they need huge amount of money to be sucessful. dont think that much money is going to come to me for atleast 10 Years because first I have to repay my education loans etc. If my guess is correct I am sure only 1% of people get the job they would like to .

Presently what i do is merely to pay the bills, but i know where my passion lies and immediately i get my act together i off to do the things that will bring me pleasure and contentment. Money is not everything just a means to an end.

It totally depends on ones situation.If money is the requrement than its okay to go for it.but if u hav sufficient money than working for passion is the priority.
