Absolutely. I don't think anyone is willing to work for no reward at all. What form the reward takes is where people differ. Like I said, I merely dabble, so since I spend a comparatively small amount of time and effort, I am happy with a small reward. For someone who write as a full-time job, or even for an hour or two every day, I would not expect my little reward to be nearly enough.

It all comes down to knowing why we do what we do, and what we want to get out of it, and realizing that just because answer "A" works for everyone else doesn't automatically mean it will work for me, and vice versa.
