How much time a day do you devote to Hubpages?
I joined about a year and a half ago, published a few hubs and then went off to do other things with the hope of returning here to really jump into interacting with others and writing more hubs. Finally starting to find the time to do that. So, I'm just curious how much time others devote to hubpages?
Not as much as I'd like to. The only way to become a better writer is to write more.
If I'm not working on other stuff or out, I'm on HP for several hours a day reading articles.
Thank you for the time frame, that's very helpful to me. I'm finally starting to absorb what it takes to really be a member of the hubpages community. Now that I'm able to find more time, I'd like to give it here. There's a lot of great people here
I think my favorite thing is finding a Hubber with a great voice who writes really well. HP is awesome for that, and there are some really amazing writers!
I agree! The more I explore, the more I love.
Up until fairly recently, I used to leave a window up. I work on my own (for the most part), so I'd pop back on whenever I wanted a short break; or else I'd pop back and forth between here and somewhere else if I had to wait for someone/something. I haven't had many projects over the Summer, so I've had days when I'm horrified to realize how much time I'll waste on here. (lol) BUT, then again, I've had stretches of days when all I do on here is look at my traffic, if that. So it all evens out, I guess. As far as solid chunks of time that I devote to writing Hubs (or long forum posts) goes, most of the time it's really not a matter of hours per day. It's more a matter of the occasional hour or two per week. The rest of the time it's a matter of popping on for three minutes, fifteen minutes, etc. You don't have to use up a lot of time "interacting". Just a little here or there can be all you really need (and sometimes, VERY little). One of the only reasons I've been leaving a forum window up is that it I'm always looking for some new thing that might show up. (It's my form of "excitement" for an otherwise very unexciting day.) I read other people's Hubs that show up in the feed and interest me, but that's, maybe, a few every week. They don't take long.
For me, the only thing that really takes that solid chunk of uninterrupted time on here is Hub-writing. Everything else can be done in snippets of minutes (unless, of course, you get bored - in which case you kill whole stretches of hours at a time on some very unproductive activity. ) In fairness to myself, though, I gravitate toward the places that I think may give me ideas for Hubs or other writing somewhere else- which for me is the forums. So it's not a complete time-waster.
HP is like going to the Gym for me, active and all interested for a few weeks then something else creeps in and I lapse spending any time on HP. What I have found is that the more time I spend on it writing hubs and interacting the better my score and the more I earn. The less time I spend those two items start to drop slowly.
Recently I have tried to keep a schedule of at least being active 1 - 2 times a week, that's manageable given my workload and lifestyle.
I joined a couple of months ago, wrote one hug and forgot all about it. I only started writing again about a month ago. I probably spend about 5-6 hrs a week, sometimes a bit more. What I have realized is that I need to be more organized as I spend a lot of time just browsing, which isn't always a bad thing I guess.
That sounds reasonable. Don't feel bad about forgetting that hub, I think I forgot my account for almost a year until 7 months ago. Then I've check back from time to time. Now I'm finally giving it the time I have time for if that makes sense.
I have been a member of hubpages for less than a week! But so far I have spent a decent amount of time writing my current hubs and drafting some new ones and to be honest I probably shouldn't be spending so much time on here given I also work plus I am a full time student...eek.
I had joined Hubpages 2 years back. I wrote a few hubs and then forgot about it until June/July this year.
I think the time that I had joined I wasn't clear exactly what more I wanted to do here, but now I have targeted to write a hub every other week. I open my window next to facebook go back and forth between them. Sometimes it is only to look at the traffic my latest hub is attracting or my score , but now most of the time I answer questions and post questions that pop up in my mind. Hubbers are a very friendly bunch of people; another set of friends apart from FB .
Keep a target of how many hubs per week or per month you want. Do check out the question/answers because they inspire you to write on certain topics, and time your activities as when do you feel hubbers are most active on Hubpages. I do that a couple of times because, when you get a healthy response quickly it spurns you on to do something more and it all goes on to add value to your profile and also gets your brain cells ticking.
Thank you for the advice! I actually have a list of things that I've been wanting to write about but have lacked the motivation to get going with it because my motivation goes in 50 million other directions. I'm trying to aim for this direction now

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 have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting about an average of 75 hits per day on 4 hubs. Is that good? What...

Aside from sharing my article links on Facebook, what are some tried and true ways of increasing traffic/reads to our articles? I'm new; 3 weeks in, have 10 published and featured articles so far. I'm trying to figure out what the number on my profile photo means exactly. I know...

How much time do you spend on HubPages daily?On average do you spend 1 hour, 2 hours, or more? Do you spend all day every day? I ask because I find I can easily spend all day on HubPages interacting with this great community!

Hey hubbers out there.. I am new to hubpages and i am not sure if I can really make money here. Like i have seen some success stories in hubpages but that seems to be long time ago. I am a student and i have little extra time. I would like to utilize my time writing hubs here only if I can really...

I didn't. I stepped away for about nine months for stupid reasons, which caused me to lose a lot of productivity time.I look at people who have been here for short periods of time who have written more hubs than me and it makes me more motivated than ever to be as great at this thing as I can...
