How much time do you spend on HubPages?

    How much time do you spend on HubPages?

    I have spent a lot of time on HP since joining and have read a lot og hubs about how to make money, but it seems like those actually making any significant money are full-time readers/writers.

    I would love to be on Hubpages full time and make a living from it. Unfortunately I work and have a family to look after so I don't get to spend nearly as much time as I would like. I probably get to spend around 2 hours a day at the moment. It's so addictive!

    Agreed with jacqui, same for me as well, 2 hours.

    I used to use this site quite frequently, but I have started using a few other sites now.  I don't have too much time to spend here anymore.

    I agree with you. Making money depends on the time you invest in writing and interacting. I don't spend as much time as I would like to here, but I'm trying to find a way to organize my obligations and use the site more. But, once I sign in, I can spend hours and hours here smile

    I've been a member for about 3 weeks and probably spend an average of 2-3 hours a day on the site.  I'm home for the summer but once the school year starts in September I won't have as much free time.  I try to read and comment on 5 hubs a day and answer a couple of questions.  I'm also trying to write one to two hubs per day while I have the time now since I know when the school year starts and my kids activities pick up for the new year I won't have nearly enough time and will probably only get one to two hubs published each week.

    I spend an hour every day on hub pages and enjoying reading hubs & commenting.

    I put attention to HubPages throughout the day whenever a have a free moment from regular work. Can't say what that adds up to but on average it might be about an hour a day. It's true that some people actually make some decent money from writing. But those are the people who put a full day into HubPages, each and every day.  If one expects real money from it they have to understand that it's a real full-time job.

    An hour per day on average.  Sometimes more.

    Too much - I should be spending more time on info barrel where the persons that moderate new hubs don't act like pissy little vendetta holding mental midgets for someone being anti "politically correct."

    I don't spend enough time. I try to but have too many distractions. From reading other answers Some people do spend a lot of time and probably reap the rewards.

    atleast two hours per day on average. Sometimes more.I love to read and write hubs.

    Thank you all so much for answering.  Next part of what I really want to know:
    Where else do you spend you time online?  Between HP and "there" are you making any money worth talking about?

  14. Escobana profile image73
    Escobanaposted 6 years ago

    I can spend at least 5 hours a day on HubPages but I don't. Making money would be nice but it's not the most important part of being here.

    It's very addictive which I like, but spending time to do good research before publishing my Hub, is also important to me.

    Besides...I love the sun! Nothing better than to reflect my life, gane some new insparation, while sitting outside with my Sangria:-)

    About 1-2 hours daily. Sometimes 3 or more if I don't have much planned out for that specific day.

    I have written two articles, and am now working on three more.

    I try to answer some questions here, because I like helping people and I find it interesting to read what you all have to ask/say.
