How often do you visit HubPages - monthly? weekly? daily? or several times a day?
Are you a frequent user, or just check in now and again? and what do you do when you're here?
I usually check in at least once a day, read three or four hubs by others, check out my account and comments, and publish on average about once a week. It would be interesting to know how you all use the site.
Several times a day lately. But I take a month or so off sometimes. I'm not a 'dedicated' writer. I tend to write what is in my heart and soul. Something I might be going through or something that inspires me.
I enjoy reading and commenting more than writing. I feel like I am gaining more knowledge that way. I've been hear a year, but I still don't know as much as I could about the site. I guess I will have to wait until I have that 'light bulb' moment. Then I know things will start to flow.
I like to start small with things. I don't make quick decisions unless of course its life or death. But something like this I like to feel my way through.
I check by hubs account several times a day and whenever I can I write an article about a topic that interests me. I wish I could write more, but I also work as a teacher and translator which is why I can only publish articles from time to time. I write articles about my job, about eco-friendly themes or about the places I have visited. I still have lots more to share on hubs and I am hoping to have published 100 articles by the end of the year.
All of my notices come over by Blackberry like regular e-mail, so I guess I am checking it all the time. That will not go on forever, but for now it serves the needed purpose of helping get back into the habit of writing for the fun of it and not writing to meet a PR goal and to fill my time while I am unemployed.
I'm still quite excited about the prospect of publishing online, and reading some really great hubs by so many talented writers here. So, as of now, I visit HP regularly, often several times a day!
It depends on what else is going on in my life. Generally, I check in once or twice a day. During the first visit I visit people who have become new followers, answer comments, check my hubs to see if there are any broken links, etc. Later in the day or evening, I like to come and answer questions and do some hub hopping.
If I can, I visit everyday, and simply check for anything that interests me, and contribute appropriately. In terms of publishing hubs, once I've published a hub, I then give myself a maximum of three days to publish another.
I pretty much usually sign in and leave a window up, even if I don't do anything. Sometimes I'll pop on or off if I have a little time inbetween doing others things (like working). So, I'll say "every day" - although I sometimes don't do much of anything for a few days.
I always check my traffic. I usually see if there's anything at all interesting in the forums. If I see that there are comments I'll either respond to them or at least keep in mind that I need to come back to do that. If it turns out there wasn't much of anything in the forums I'll sometimes come here, to Answers, and see if anything catches my eye.
Everything above is my "non-Hub-writing" type of activity. If I happen to see a Hub that catches my eye I may read that.
Then, if I have a chunk of time (and I'm in the mood), I'll write a Hub. Sometimes I'll write two within, say, two days but then not write another one for a few weeks.
Basically, I use this site to write Hubs here and there; but then I use it for the things mentioned above, as a way of having some other insignificant little things to do as a way of having something "light" to do between work or other things I do online.
So, yes - frequent user.
I try once a day. Sometimes I just can't get on. But oh well. There is always tomorrow.
I try to get in at least once a day and check out what is happening, and join in the with some comments.
When I post hubs regularly, I check the site often to gauge feedback and get an idea of which topics might be the best ones about which to write next. When I have less time to generate new content, will only check once a week or so to check for dead links and adjust keywords.
I spend a bit of time online each day for my online business, so when I first go online I'll usually check for new comments to reply to. Then when I get more time during the day I will read some hubs from people I follow and may do some hub hopping. So I'm not sure how long I actually spend on Hub Pages, but I'll usually check in several times a day. Some months though I won't log in to Hub Pages at all!
I started writing here only last Monday and during that week, I've visited the site
multiple times every day. When HubPages sends me an email about something I'm following, I click on the link and check it out. This could become a problem, because I keep getting redirected to another site and have to login again, frequently. So each visit takes up a lot of time.
I would simply say that I live in Hub Pages ...I visit Hub pages several times a day. I keep doing research here on the best Hubs and what are the trendy topics in my niche for me to write. This is a good way to always write what people want to read. Thanks

If you open a Hub several times a day, will the Hubscore drop?Sometimes, if I have lots of comments, I might open an article about 8 – 10 times in a day, to respond or I might edit it a few times. Just wondered if it affects my Hubscore.

When I get a good idea for a key word to write a hub about I also write another article about the same subject in my blogs. No sense in wasting a good key word on just one hub.In fact if you do it right you can see yourself be ranked several times on the front page of google for the same key...

Do you read hubs that are shared by hubbers who often 'share' their own hubs?Just wondering what your thoughts are ....by often I mean, several times a day or several times a week....

How often do you publish a hub?I am just wondering how often do we publish a hub. Once a week or several times a week? And what are the impact of doing it?

This is off topic but needs to be said so I'll say it then drop it.I admit I have lost my cool several times in here but NOT unprovoked (that’s not an excuse).I have a habit of protecting the underdog from those who prey with words to show dominance.. as is the case with a few people in here...
