Can you ever spend too much time on Hubpages?
I haven't been writing Hubs in quite some time. Yet, reading the works of all these fine authors, I've been stuck on the computer for over an hour. I would love to read what others have to say about the value of spending their time on Hubpages just reading, commenting, rating, thinking, sharing and making friends.
You probably can, and my wife has suggested at times that I do. It is addicting, however, and I have met many wonderful people and excellent writers here. I was suddenly thrown into the unemployed/not ready to retire status. While still looking for work, I discovered HubPages (don't remember how) and it has become a sort of avocation, feeding my need to write. I read many hubs, comment on almost all I read and enjoy the whole process immensely. I intend to write many more as well. Good question!
Well that is a tough question Debby. For a person that is currently working as a writer, or trying to build a reputation as a writer, the time spent here on HubPages in invaluable. The community, the exposure, the tips and suggestions are all very worthy of the time spent.
Now, for someone that is not writing here, it becomes a personal value judgment as to how much time reading and commenting is worth and how much the community means to you.
For me, I can say I have met some very great people here, and made friends I never would have otherwise. A couple of those people have helped me through some tough moments, so to me HubPages is a good thing.
My wife says that I spend too much time on the computer, the HubPage site specifically. She watches HGTV, I read and write on HubPages. A perfect marriage.
Since I just got a Level VI commenter accolade in less than 5 months, maybe she is right.
Sure you can. "Everything in moderation" still applies...even for HubPages.
If Hubpages is getting in the way of basic care (such as regular showers, eating, etc), then I'd say that person is spending too much time on Hubpages.
Right on! If you do not find the time for general self care, then we've crossed the line. I'm so surprised more people are not writing about the positive attributes of being on Hubpages.
Hubpages is extremely addicting! The great thing about it though is you can learn SO MUCH while you browse all the available hubs. Spending time on Hubpages is definitely better than a lot of the bad habits people develop. On the other hand, they say everything is good in moderation.
As long as I remember to eat and sleep I think I am doing ok .
I believe you could spend too much time on almost anything. I wish I could spend more time on Hubpages but I have to balance out my time with work and family.
Absolutely you can, and I'm a perfect example. It would be different if more of my hubbing time was spent posting and reading hubs. But it's easy to get distracted, and I'm afraid the questions and answers are a huge distraction for me.
Only if your alarm goes off to get you out of bed and you have to step away from the computer to shut it off!
I really really like to spend as long as possible but due to job, I hardly have 14 hours a week, but really wish to spend longer hours so that I could find the best hubbers and their writings.
Yes, you can. I have burned many a casserole since I started here on hubpages. Even setting off the fire alarms too. Really, it's that bad. I need deliverance.
Sounds like you easily get absorbed in the online network, instead of paying attention to what's cooking in the kitchen. I know exactly what you mean. Let's all get an alarm clock to ring every hour and get up to check what's burning on the stove.

I think the article makes some good points. In addition Obama has spent more time on vacations, playing golf, and fund raising etc while ignoring D-Day, Memorial Day, and the on going oil spill crisis. This certainly...
