    I'm not sure what I'm doing in here yet but for some reason I'm addicted to this community of writers. I could spend all my waking hours in here but I know I can't. There is so much to learn about for just writing in HubPages and there's even more to stuff to DO in here like read, comment, etc... PLUS, I need fans! Help!

    You can never go wrong with hubpages. You can share ideas, meet other people, learn from other topics written by reputable writers. That's why I'm hooked by it. I write and post and meet people. It's fun.

    Likewise, I feel like writing a HUB then want a break... Do I get up and walk around? No I go on the forums or comment on my fellow Hubbers Hubs and see if I can help anyone else out and make some friends... idk why exactly but its addictive and I'm already making very decent pocket change doing it!

    Addicted? My oh my! and i thought i was the only one. Seems to be affecting my life now.
    Wake up....HP
    Time for leg stretching?...no HP forums
    Go out to the grocery store?....no, quickly check Adsense
    Chat with friends?......no, busy researching for new ideas.
    Go to the loo?.......no let me check my traffic first.
    Time to go to bed?....no, let me try and publish a hub first.
    And it goes on and on and on, day in day out, for the last 5 months.
    SIGH....never knew life could be so much fun! smile
