Hubpages Ban

  1. WryLilt profile image88
    WryLiltposted 6 years ago

    I've been informed that I spend far too much time on hubpages.

    I have also been informed that I won't be allowed near the computer (yikes) from Tomorrow till Sunday.

    So I'll spend time with my family, maybe even go outside (is that big annoying thing called the sun still out there?)

    big_smile So I have just a few more hours to enjoy my computer (and finish writing my assignment), before the ban begins.

    If you don't see me around, you'll know why. Wish me luck sad

      I take it since you are banned that you will be settling for a little less this Christmas smile

                Yes. Posting nonstop. While writing my assignment and transcribing my interview. And eating dinner. And chasing a crawling baby out of everything. big_smile

                    True. It's what I usually do! For someone with no life I certainly keep busy!

      My family is plotting an intervention regarding the same thing, WryLilt!  It's a shame, really, but I'll just go along with them, to HPRehab. 
      Good luck with the ban!

        Exactly!    lol          (On a side note, I'm a little concerned about the word, "allowed"......   mad     "Allowed?!!!"    "Allowed?!!!!"      mad   mad  Wry Lilt, the word, "allowed", should not be in your vocabulary.   lol

      From the fact that you are now posting, can we presume it has reached the early hours of Sunday AM in Australia?

    mega1posted 6 years ago

    I kind of do this every Sunday - when I am away from my computer usually for a block of time.  It's very good for me to touch, taste, hear, smell and see for awhile.

    Also - you can always write a hub about the experience away from us!  smile

    If I had a baby around, believe me I would not be on the computer much AT ALL!  of course, its not my job - but man, I miss my babies - that time flies past so fast and they are so precious - really, enjoy, enjoy! and you will also be making your child a better person by giving lots of time and energy!

    So how was the break - did it do you any good. I have had occassional enforced breaks and I always come up with new ideas while I am away.

    Or were you really good and didnt even think about HP at all.

    1. WryLilt profile image88
      WryLiltposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Hahahaha. Not think about HP?

      I snuck on three times (to check my earnings...) Well my earnings gave me a slap on the hand. Saturday was the first day in about three months where I didn't get a SINGLE CLICK! Just 12c from impressions. Fail!

      I wrote eight hubs yesterday, think I missed HP? LoLoL

    I got told off for spending too much time there - I blame it on an untidy den and weight gain. A break from HP wouldn't be so bad, wouldn't it?

    Oh, and we all need some exercise as well as family time!
