    How is it possible to write in HubPages, manage your own site and still have a full-time job?

    Not to mention you're running the household and helping your husband with the family business all at the same time. Does anyone here do these?

    I have been doing it for over two years now and for no pay here, well I had been writing several months and only had a dime from AdSense go I quit them actually. Am thinking about getting back on it since it looks a little more promising but I still write for free and stay quite busy, since I have taken down hundreds I had written. So anyway, it is doable.

    I do and it's hectic, but you need to organize your time well. It takes great patience. I sign in to HP everyday, I do all my household chores including giving my man attention, I do freelancing full time and I have a home business and animals to tend. Oh, and I still find me time.

    Make up a time management schedule and work with it if you find it hard to organize. Personally I just make mental notes. I find that years of organizational management has prepped me for handling this.

    It's tight but it can be done.

    Its all about organisation, and writing about something you love. If you want to write about it then you will find the time.

    I try and not watch TV, and instead use that evening time to organise my life, read and do my writing. Setting aside an hour a day is more than enough as it allows me to start/finish an article and check on my website. If I have big changes planned then I try keep these to weekends.

    I'm with the others on this.  It takes organization and having a whole lot of passion for the subject of the hubs you create.

    Actually I face the same issue here. Managing these:
    HubPages
    Squidoo
    Blogger
    Website

    This is tough. I usually do schedule where each day, I focus on certain thing. That helps to solve the problem (in some way).

    It definitely is a matter of having a good schedule where you allocate time for Hubbing/managing your website and other online tasks. You have to pencil them into your schedule or you will not find the time to do them as much as you need to.

    However, having said that, it is so easy to get out of control spending time online so you must be conscious of this and not overdo it to the detriment of your family time and other responsibilities.

    Did you not know that you are a juggler too?

    anything is possible with good time management. but of course you need to know what to focus on. i got a full time job which is quite busy these days so i have stopped hubbing for some time

    I do, and it's manic!  I've put a LOT of effort into Hubpages over the past month to get thing up and running, plus I have my own blog on a slightly separate subject.  Lots of organisation plus a genuine love of writing makes it all bearable and possible.

    I do. But my full time job is running a household due to being a live-in nanny. My family owns a business, but all I have to do is run the site. That could be why I have more time for hubpages then you do...its all kinda combined. lol!

    The key is mainly time management. Set a time in the day for just yourself to do whatever you feel needs working on. Then move onto something else the next day.

    It's a rough ticket, but it can definitely be done. I work part-time, go to college full-time, and I write here. It's hectic for sure! It's really all about two things: managing time and passion!

    I quit my job, which I don't recommend by the way for the most obvious reasons.  So its something I cannot answer at the moment.  Now when I was working though I was spending all my free time developing websites, and blogging. 

    To focus on a single thing at a time works wonders, now if you have kids which many hubbers do, it may appear to be impossible, but I think time management also works wonders. 

    Maybe set a schedule in place for the writing of hubs & the editing as well as proof reading process.  If there's a will there is also a way.
