How do you balance your time between HubPages and blogging?
I love writing on HubPages but I want to maintain my blogs, but I find it hard to balance and end up spending lots more time on HubPages.
I have just started both, but I keep to I guess sort of a plan, I write one article for each, also add in one article for ezine articles and one squidoo page then start over. Sometimes only get one article for each a week, 3 blogs, sometimes less, but it seems to be working. I am getting some traffic, minimal. I think that you just have to have some type of plan. This worls well for me, because of my schedule.
I like to use hubpages as an auxiliary place to write articles that I am interested in putting together but fall outside the content that I write on a few blogs. Hubpages is great for these types of articles and so I enjoy putting up a new hub every few days or week.
I just started blogging again. Of the blogs I write, I find they are sounding boards for other things I am working on in hubpages and elsewhere. A blog is a quick easy way to throw a few ideas out into cyberspace. It is the initial draft, and sometimes just the idea of phase of something better that may come later (even if it takes a few months). I also love that I can post blog entries from my smartphone so when I get an idea or a little bit of downtime - I can jot down some insights.
I don't blog. I just sort of never had enough ego to think that anyone would be interested in what I thought or did - outside of my fiction writing.
I find it hard to tear myself away from HP, but you need to make up your mind to do it. I find it easier to do my articles on my computer and just paste them to HP or my blog, that way I spend less time on each site, instead of typing directly into the post or hub capsule. I also limit the amount of tasks I do on HP like commenting and forums, so I have more time to blog and do my freelance work.
I don't Im so badly organised like that I sometimes find I just have to leave my computer otherwise I'll spend all day on one or the other.
This is a great question to ask. In fact, I had thought of this question myself days earlier. I'm glad you asked the question though!
I feel that you have to find a balance between hubbing and blogging. I would say split your time to where you can equally spend a little bit of time on both. This would also depend on how much blogging you do in a day! You can also opt to writing a hub or two once a week. Again, depending on how many hubs you write in a week? Good fortune, and may you receive the answer you are looking for.

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

I am not all that familiar with the ends and outs of blogging. My understanding is that you can blog about anything- from handy parenting tips to telling people about how you slipped on some ice and landed on your booty in front of a million people. (I don't know why you would write about that, but...

Am I losing money from my writing here on Hubpages?Although my hubs have been badly hit by another Panda or a Penguin update and the earnings from my Hubs are at their lowest in a few years, I cannot say in all honesty that I am losing any money what so ever.I may be earning less now than I have in...

What sites exist that are free to use, that allow writers to create any content (like HP), where you can make money?

Hi, I'm completely new to freelance writing and I thought I'd give it a shot because writing is second nature to me and it's something I really enjoy. But I'm not sure if a website like HubPages fits what I want to write about. It's been suggested to me that blogging is more up my alley. What I...

I can only speak for myself but I think I've got a case of the Hubpages Spread! What's that you say? The Hubpages spread is the 10 lbs you put on after spending super long hours writing and posting hubs- plus editing old ones. I've developed the baaaaaad habit of scarfing down food while at my work...
