How much time do you spend working on your computer doing hubpages related activities? I find I am spending most of my waking hours doing some type of adsense-hubpages task. Is that normal?
I think that depends on the amount of free time you have. I don't have much free time, but I try to write articles often. Usually life happens, though, and I end up doing a whole lot of HP writing, editing, and research for a few weeks or a few months, then taking a break to catch up on my life (children, church responsibilities, spouse, moving, etc.) I wish I could devote more time than that, but in my stage of life it just isn't possible.
For the last few weeks, much of my waking time, as wannab says. That has changed for a while as family visits, and I don't really expect it to go back to that level as job requirements grow.
I kinda feel that I had a real good start, but will have to slow down whether I want to or not, and that's OK, I guess. Probably end up at 20-30 hours a week, maybe a little more.
My time on hubpages changes from day to day. Sometimes I am only online to check the comments and fan mail. Other times I'm online for a couple hours. I usually go on hubpages during my down time. I try to devote as much time as possible since I received my first adsense payout and now my adsense revenue is on the rise.
Spent a lot of time on here to begin with then went awol for about 9 months or so,then devoted this year to writing hubs,i had 59 at the start of this year and now have 106 so 47 hubs later and am finally making money i work 45 hrs a week so its hard to write every day,i spend about half hour every day without fail then about 2 hours every day off that i have writing something and then maybe an hour or 2 during the week in the evening after work,wish i had more free time.
I am going to be cryptic on this. When I first came almost three years ago I spent a lot of time for the first couple of month,s then I went AWOL as regards posting goes for about a year although i did check in now i visit mosts days I am due for holiday though, Now which one of you want to go on a holiday with me ?
I use to spend several hours, but lately I've only had time to check it about once a day. I miss the forums.
I'm afraid that I am getting to be an addict as well. That's great for the summer but may become a problem when I start back to work. And as far as going on holiday-let's go-as long as they have WIFI
According to the wife the amount of time I spend on here is Too Much.
However if you ever want to earn enough on here to make a living that is about the amount of time I think you need to aim for, at least to begin with!
Too much time.
No, actually, I spend too much time on the forums, and not enough time actually writing and optimizing my hubs.
I need to correct this, and yet here I am talking to you people...
I'm a total addict too. I spend all my spare time on here.
It's hard to really zero in on a number of hours per week for me. On the one hand, I've pretty much always got a window open for popping on and off HubPages while I'm doing other things (or to take a break from "real" work). So I'm technically "on HubPages" pretty much all the time. On the other hand, I may not really be doing anything other than popping back into the forums or responding to a comment that shows up. So, I may have a few times in a month (I think) when I'm really "on HubPages" and putting together a Hub and not doing other things. On yet another hand (if there were such a thing as a third hand); since I'm self-employed and seem to have a seven-day work week, I'll have those times when I decide I'm going to "veg out" for a day or two and do nothing but hang out on HubPages and do nothing else but check e.mails. It's my version of "a day of rest".
If I don't have any other engagements I am off and on this site all day long
I leave my computer on all the time and usually have hubpages open. I write articles in another format and then copy and paste here.
Quality content takes a lot of time.
I spend probably about 3 or 4 hours a day at this. I do not require much sleep so I am able to work on my writing a couple of hours before I go to work. When I get home, I edit. Then write some more, then get something done, like pull weeds, or fix something, then when we settle in for the evening, I work on my hubs while we watch tv.
I used to spend alot of time on hubpages. Now I only pop on while im wrkn for a few minutes in the forums...
Not enough! But recently I have been posting at least a few hubs per week!
It used to be a good few hours a day, now it is quite less as I've just started a course and nearly launching my wave of ebooks.....soon....very soon!!
Way too much. But I have this obsession to get to 100 hubs.. No, that's not it. It's the darn HubScore. I have to keep watching it because it might go down. No, no, it's the stats - if I don't check them something awful will happen.
Or there could be an interesting question? Maybe somebody left a comment? Let's check the forums - it's been almost 10 minutes!
Oh, darn there's another Hubbers You Follow email!
Did I eat today? I know I didn't shave. What? It's almost 7:00 PM??? Impossible.
Depends on what else is going on during the day. Some days all day. On other days a couple of hours.

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

I am talking about best and worst scenarios. I have been through many posts on the forum and other places. From what I understand, you can hope to make (in the best case) about $1 per month per hub. So is that true for...

Let me be honest with you, I joined Hubpages in the hope that I will be able to earn some extra income to supplement my college expenses. I know there is no such thing as easy money and I shouldn't expect to live off my...

From start to finish, including backlinking, how long does it take to create and promote one hub?
