    Do you click refresh repeatedly after publishing a new hub to see if your hub is being read?

    Yes smile, Im so addicted, I'm checking my stats multiple times daily when what I SHOULD be doing is writing lol.  I'm gonna try to write this weekend and ignore stats altogether smile

      I have to stop doing it as well.  It is crazy.  Good luck with staying away from the refresh button. smile

    I've caught myself doing this a couple times, especially on my phone. But I try to limit doing it to much because it's not very productive.

      You are right, it isn't productive and it really won't change the outcome anyway.  I think I am just surprised when the numbers go up.  I can't believe anyone is reading my hubs.

      Same feeling here! Especially when I write a particularly nerdy one! Haha

    No, I just wait for some hours, or some days. I think my hubs are not popular so clicking refresh repeatedly will not show much change.

      Don't under estimate your hubs. Have faith in your work.

    I don't do this...its just crazy!!!  smile  BUT I do over to Google Analytics and watch the real-time counter because that is much more sane.

    Nothing like getting some instant gratification.

      I am so new at this.  No idea what google analytics does.

    After publishing a hub usually I go for rest. If I stay online I check hub status once or twice..... and then daily once or twice when I am online. I know, visitors don't come instantly. But I can't stop myself from checking it daily. It's always gives me pleasure to see new visitors daily....

    I will never put that much pressure on myself.  The only thing I check is my email once a week for notifications.  I am so busy most of the time I just don't have the spare minutes to be that worried about something I have no control over.

    I write to share my experience, my knowledge and never depend on others to get me there.  I know what I have to do and if I'm satisfied with how I do things.  That's all that matters to me. 

    It's like checking to see if you got something in the mail you sent away for.  Do you keep looking in the mailbox constantly to see if it's there?  If it's there, good.  If it's not, then what?  It's not there.  So?  You know eventually it will be there, so why waste so much energy worrying about it or checking for it?

    I believe that when I write a hub, it's good.  If it was substandard or needed improvement, then I will fix it.  I'm not perfect.  I'm always here to learn, to evolve as a writer, a person.  It's the best I can do.  It's all I can do.

      Great answer Rosana.  Everything you are saying makes a lot of sense. Thank you for sharing it with me.  smile
