    Definitely makes sense :) I think you - and others who have said similar things - are right that I should spend the little time I have on writing itself, and not worry as much about questions, comments etc. until I have more hubs myself.

    Best answer by far. I laughed after reading some of the other answers. The question author stated in the question that he doesn't have much time for HubPages and JanMaklak wrote a novel. Keep it real sid.

    Great idea. I definitely have been working a bit with promotion, I think right now I am going to take the bit of time I have to try to write more hubs and then get back to promoting.

    Okay, great ideas. #3 is coming up a lot in people's answers, so I think it will be my next focus.

    That makes sense. I can definitely carve out 1/2 an hour or so a day for writing.

    Is your Google + friends, like Facebook friends, or just people you have linked up to in Google +? Just wondering if it's different than Facebook, because I am careful who I link up with there, but Google + could be useful for random followers. TY

    Okay thanks. I don't have a ton of time to write, but I am definitely going to try to make the hubs I do write focus on a particular niche, hopefully I can find a unique one!

    Definitely true on the prioritizing bit. At the moment my full time job takes priority #1, my part time jobs take priority #2, my college course takes priority 3, then commuting, writing, eating and sleeping get to share the remaining time.

    I agree about volume. Once you get around 100 articles the earnings will look better. It helps to choose topics you can write about quickly, things you are already an expert on.

    i will definitely work on these. esepcially 2-5. as i said earlier, the reason i'm asking this question is because i lack the time right now, to write as regularly as i would like.

    This is good advice for all areas of life. A smart person knows when to simply cut his or her losses if the effort is not being rewarded, and is not likely to be rewarded. (And Paxwill is among the smartest here!)

    That makes sense. I have had crescentskies experience of not really enough followers to be a big help for me, but I've had some luck with twitter and reddit.
