    Do you perform some type of Hub activity on a daily basis?

    Whether it is answering a question, commenting on a hub or writing a new hub, do you try to interact with HubPages on a daily basis?

    I usually do some kind of activity daily - especially at the moment as I'm doing the apprenticeship. But I also like to keep up with my favourite writers as well so if I'm not writing myself I like to read their hubs and leave comments and so on. I tend to visit Hub Pages after I see to my e-mails, it's like a daily routine now.

      You seem to have a good rhythm for tackling your commitment to HubPages and let me just say, "Congratulations" on your involvement in the "Apprentiseship program."

    I read every new hub of my followers even though I am at times several days behind. I also try to read 3-5 new hubs a day of non-followers. I always respond to comments in my hubs. And I forever check my stats.

    Not daily... my life and my schedule does not allow for this.  But, I 'think' of HP daily.  I have a notebook I keep with me that I jot ideas for hubs in; I also keep my camera with me and shoot away when something catches my eye for future hubs.   

    Ideally, I would have my computer up all day long, I would be HOME working, and I would be minus one family member living with me to absorb so much of my time with his neediness.

      Great answer. Oh those needy people who get so jealous if all of another person's attention is directed at them, do require a lot of time.  I love the camera idea and have done that myself.

    Yes, some type of Hub activity everyday has become a habit or a regular routine, if you may call it like that. Asking questions, writing answers, commenting  and reading other's hubs is a daily affair and I am happy if I am able to write one hub per week/ a fortnight.  But there is more to life apart from the online world, which needs my attention. So it depends, how much time I can manage, depending upon the priorities.

    1. pagesvoice profile image80
      pagesvoiceposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      I totally agree with your analysis. For instance, those of us who have jobs, families, household chores, grocery shopping, meal preparation, yard work, etc., all require a certain amount of balance with HP.

    Yes, I always try to do something on hubpages every day.  Somedays I might be busy and only have time to answer a question or respond to a comment, but I feel it is important to stay active in the community as much as possible.

    I also like to read other hubs and see what people are up to on here.  Most days, time permitting, I will work on one of my unpublished hubs.  I like to push myself to accomplish something each day, no matter how small the task.

    1. pagesvoice profile image80
      pagesvoiceposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      You echo my feeling as far as seeing what others are up to here. I have totally lost count on how many Hubs I've been working on. I'll go into MS Word and end up surprised to find something I was writing and simply forgot to finish.

  16. rjsadowski profile image69
    rjsadowskiposted 10 years ago

    Each day I review my Hub statistics to see were my traffic is comming from, which Hubs are not very active, and which Hubs have low scores. I try to update and improve at least five hubs every day. I also hop Hubs and try to add a few Hubbers to follow who have similar interests. I answer questions if I feel qualified to do so. Then I sit down to finish any Hubs that I am working on. Quality is far more important than quantity.

    Yes, definitely.  It is easy for me because I work at home on my computer all day long.  I am constantly re-proofreading my hubs and finding mistakes.  It seems to be a never-ending process.  I try to add at least one hub a week and do some hub hopping, although I don't enjoy the new way nearly as much and don't do it nearly as often as I did before it was changed.  Before, it was fun.   It seems more like work now.   But to answer the question, yes, I do.

    I try to go through a few hubs to check for typos, grammatical errors etc. Quite recently, Hubpages have included two additional symbols( Zs & clockwise and ant-clockwise arrows) for hubs that are not doing well and those that are idling, respectively. I have been spending some time trying to transform or update these poorly performing hubs as much as I can. Occasionally, I also try to answer a few questions if I think I have useful or appropriate answers. It's a pleasure to comment on hubs now and then, if the subject matter is one that I can add any meaning conversation to.

    I absolutely do!! I love it here- I very much enjoy the interactions with other Hubbers, I adore reading and learning new stuff- it's become better than facebook for me (finally, since that was sucking the life out of me). I have developed a major love affair with HubPages. Please don't tell my other half that smile

    Are you here daily?

      "Yes" I am here daily. Some days I don't answer questions because I am either writing, making adjustments and corrections to older posts, or commenting on Hubs by other writers. Ditto on the HP love affair.

    I definitely check my stats at least once a day.  I also try to finish many of the hubs I have remaining unpublished but then I find myself searching new hubs and catching up with followers. I have become addicted to hp.  I do not answer a lot of questions but do browse questions and answers from time to time.

I also visit the forums to see what is going on and I am a hub greeter so I try to do that as well on a daily basis. So to answer your question. Yes I am here on a daily basis performing some type of hub activity.

    Only when I'm at home.  Then I look at questions, at new hubs of hubbers I follow and check my own hubs, maybe to update them or look at comments.  I also draft hubs but don't usually write hubs when I'm away as wifi is not always available.  I like to keep a daily check on my profile and hub scores too.

    I do!  While I might not be able to sit down everyday and write, I am doing odds and ends from my phone.  Since I do a lot of DIY and recipe type hubs, I'm taking pictures daily of what I'm working on and those projects and pictures turn into hubs during that given month.

      It's too bad that time restraints limit you working on HubPages. For me, I find interacting with other writers and those with various viewpoints to be stimulating, exhilarating and liberating. Time is always a factor.

    I will check my HubPages account daily, but I do not always read an entire article. It all depends on how much time I have and what else I have going on at the moment.

    I had to withdraw from the Apprenticeship Program due to other commitments (it's harvest time) so I have not been writing as much as I should be. Perhaps when winter sets in I will be able to write more - I do have some ideas sitting in the back of my mind.

    I am also trying to get my alpaca fiber processed, so that in itself takes up time. Too many things to do and not enough time to do them. smile

    Checking my earnings, moderating comments are my two daily HP activities.

    I do something on ONE of my publishing platforms every day, whether it's revamping old articles or writing new content. At the beginning of 2012, I set a goal of 150 new articles by year's end, and 50 articles revamped. At this point I need to write 2.5 new articles a week to stay on track.

    Every Sunday, I tally up and record sales, traffic, stats for my articles for the week so I can see longterm trends, what's working and what's not.

    pagesvoice  That is a yes for me. Hubpages gets into your blood, at least for me it has. When I turn on the computer the first place I go is hp.  From there I usually read at least a couple of hubs, check my account activity and or answer comments so on. Then if I do not get lost on other sites mine included I will start a hub or edit one I have written. I have gotten better and spend less time at the hubs, other priorities in life.  I have figured out if I intend to publish a hub that is first prioity write, then go hub hopping. One could spend hours jsut reading and commenting, which I have done on several occassions.

    Great question I will need to read the other answers. Thank You pagevoice.  God Bless your journey at these here hub pages. I will have to visit your neighborhood.  Hugs Galore.

    I try to do SOMETHING everyday. At the moment, I'm striving to make at least 5 hubs a week.

    And for those days that I just can't muster up the motivation to write a hub, I either work on backlinks for my published hubs, or I go around answering questions or writing on hubs.

    For example today, I meant to write a hub but I just got so sidetracked with cleaning the house that I ended up not doing it, and by now I just lost motivation. So, I worked on a couple backlinks and made the outline for tomorrows hub.
