Can you ever spend too much time on Hubpages?


I haven't been writing Hubs in quite some time. Yet, reading the works of all these fine authors, I've been stuck on the computer for over an hour. I would love to read what others have to say about the value of spending their time on Hubpages just reading, commenting, rating, thinking, sharing and making friends.

    I have to chuckle at the HGTV... that's my second addiction! I try to balance my time on the computer, home life and work... some days it's harder than others.

    Hi Curiad. I see what you mean. It's not just the time reading, but the time making friends and getting support that makes it worthwhile for you.

    If anyone figures out a technique to get in and get out quickly and easily, let us all know the secret.

    Sounds like you easily get absorbed in the online network, instead of paying attention to what's cooking in the kitchen. I know exactly what you mean. Let's all get an alarm clock to ring every hour and get up to check what's burning on the stove.

    Thumbs up. Better than other bad habits. But, as the consensus seems to imply, anything can become an addiction, none of which can be healthy.

    Sounds like you would like your own life and set your own hours so you can decide how to spend your own time.

    Thank you for this answer, so I'm not the only one spending too much time here. Addicting is the word many of us use when it comes to Hubpages. Avocation sends a better connotation to the time here. Like it!
