    How much time do you spend on Hub Pages each day?

    I don't mean on the computer or the Internet, just Hub Pages....reading, writing, whatever.

    I don't keep track, but definitely hours. When I am getting an article ready, I usually spend a few hours on that, but even when I'm not, I spend quite a bit of time (scattered throughout the day) on HubPages.

      Some of my hubs alone take me six to eight hours, not all in one day but added to the rest, I'm here a lot!

    That's a tough one, Mary.  if we are counting the writing of the hub, and comments, I guess two to three hours per day. I tend to write all my hubs for the week on Mondays...that's my hub day....and then I just post one per day the rest of the week....anyway, I figure it must be closer to three hours per day rather than two.

    A day on which I write a Hub, I'd estimate 6-8 hours; this includes writing, publishing, taking pictures if necessary, promoting, thinking, jotting down notes; so that would be an involved hub, too. Some of that is done on other days too. But sounds like a good average. Probably most days, however, I might spend 3-4 hours; commenting, forums, reading, maybe some of those other things I mentioned before, etc. These are very rough estimates, but they are what seems reasonable when I think about the time and work I put in.

    It all depends on the hub. I try to write exclusives in my genre, and those tend to be a bit more tricky than if I came up with my own title. I've just started writing for HP in January, so it's only been two months. Currently, I have two days carved out for writing hubs with 2-3 hours penciled in. It does take me longer than that on some days, especially if I'm doing research. If I don't finish in my 2-3 hours allotted, I then spend some of my free time in the evenings and weekends finishing up. I'm trying to write 8-10 hubs per month. I hope as I get more use to having HP in my daily schedule, I will be organized and the words will flow much easier. However, I do come in to HP for enjoyment at other times to read questions like yours. wink

    For getting a hub published about an hour.  However, it doesn't mean that it takes me an hour to write a hub.  I use the old fashioned ournal where I write down everything I want to write about-which could be a couple of hours.  Then when I have time I get it typed out on my word program and then published.  I can't even think about how long I sped on hub pages reding through other peoples hubs and answering questions.  I would say 2-3 hours a day on my days off.  I try not to be on all the time since I have other things to do, since I have a family and am doing several Bible Studies.  However, if I get accepted in the apprenticeship program, I am going to have to make some sacrifices.

    Nearly every day I at least take a look at Hubpages.  Sometimes it's a half-hour or so just answering the questions pages.  Other time's I could be on for half a day or more.   My view of late is: more time than it's worth.

    Why?   The amount of readership.  The rewards have probably already come from the actual satisfactions of writing.  Placing the Hub is simply a formality and a hope that someone will actually read what's written.

    When you see how many Hubs the automatic system has placed as not worth the weight, one can get discouraged.  It is only questions of this type by other Hubbers that keep the system going, I suspect...

    The easier question would be how much time do you not spend on HubPages each day? My boyfriend probably thinks I’m having an online affair and my kids forgot what I look like. No I’m just kidding, but I have to admit I’m super addicted. I don’t think I’ve had more than 4 hours of sleep any night since I started. I just started and I want to start off on the right foot. I want to explore other people’s hubs, I want to create my own. I feel responsible to correspond with people or hubs that I am notified about, which can be quite consuming. I also have to admit that my REFRESH button is probably worn out because I am frequently checking numbers, numbers, numbers. Can you stay on top of your game here if you are not dedicating serious amounts of time?

      Oh, I didn't know that it was on hold. The Apprenticeship program is for 6 months. I don't know if they have more than one group. My group has 15 apprentices. It started in January, so maybe it will begin in July???  It is an awesome program.

      To stay in the program, I have to write 8 hubs per month. My goal is to get 2 hubs per week done, and I spend about 4-6 hours/wk on them. I think it will be less as I get more efficient. I get paid for each hub (up to 15 per month) which is nice. :-)

    This is a very good question. I would say if it's a day I am publishing a hub ( and I try for 3 hubs per week) I am on 3 - 4 hours. But on dam not publishing...1 to 2 hours just to check in, read newly published hubs of people I am following, and I enjoy hub hopping from time to time. I also like to check my stats in terms of earning every day, so I am in and out of Hub Pages a lot each day.

    More time than I should:)  (Dishes piled up in the sink, bed unmade, dog begging for a walk.)  I would probably estimate about 4 hrs to comment, reply to comments, hopping hubs, reviewing notices and checking out forums.  I try to spend time each day on writing a hub and revising sleepers.  I like visiting the learning center too - there's so much to learn.

    Nearly 2 hours everyday. There are so many other things to do, besides this in the real world. I can not devote more than this time even if I want to. But when writing a hub, it usually takes 4 to 5 hours. But then other things suffer. I have found a solution however to this. I try to write and complete new hubs in two to three days.

    Lisa HWposted 5 years ago

    Whether I'm "on HubPages" or just my computer is "on HubPages" are two different things.  Unless I have reason not to, I most often have a window up for HubPages.  I work from home, so if I have projects that I'm working on it breaks things up for me to pop on and off HP and see if anything new has shown up that interests me for a few minutes.  I don't do anything on sites like Facebook or Google+, so HP makes a handy place where some "new little thing" might go on "in the outside world" that interests me. 

    When I don't have projects that I'm working on (or other stuff to do, work or not) I'll spend more than the throughout-the-day snippets of time on HubPages.  I don't write many Hubs per month, but that's when I may use a couple of hours to write a Hub.  OR, on a day when I've decided to "do nothing" and "just be a vegetable"  I may come to the "Answers" section here and see what questions "inspire" me to come up with something.  It's not quite the waste of time that it can seem, because sometimes I get ideas for writing something other than a Hub; and, if nothing else, I'll always save whatever answer I come up with in case I want to use it somewhere else for something.  It's kind of my way of taking the occasional day off to "be a vegetable" while still having the possibility of getting ideas/inspiration for writing.   On those "do-nothing" days I leave the HP window as the one where I spend more time and go back to other windows for that "scanning" for other interesting stuff or other stuff I might want to do.

    So,  in spite of the fact that my computer spends a lot of time with a window up for HubPages, and in spite of the fact that I generally pop on and off HubPages all through most days (at different times), I seldom spend much uninterrupted time on the site just writing Hubs (and with the new emphasis on Hubs aimed at search engines, rather than at humans who browse for reading I really don't do much Hub-reading at all these days.  I do scan when I pop on or off HP, but finding reading is trickier these days).

    So, in answer to the question:   Sort of most of the time most days, but also pretty much no uninterrupted time ever these days.    smile    To further complicate things, my work load changes from one day/month to the next (which is, I guess, why I've settled into my very flexible "plan" of leaving the HP window open.  (An alternative to looking out a "real world" window throughout the day.  smile  )

    Not including actually writing a hub...just hubbing...I've cut my time down to 1-2 hours a day. Usually in increments of 10-15 minutes at a time or longer if time allows. Then again with my phone I could read hubs while sitting in traffic or standing in the check out line. Unless of course the rag mags at Publix or Target have exciting headlines then I'll read the National Enquirer. OK, I'm done. There goes my 10 minutes allotted for now. Good question Mary!

    Well, I'm brand-new, so I'm not really sure yet. I guess so far a couple of hours per day, scattered here and there. I've only made four hubs, but each of those took me 2-4 hours. I'm not sure how to organize my time here, to be honest...I'm working on freelance writing, but I got a bit discouraged, and then found HubPages. I really don't expect to make any money here, but it's fun and low-pressure. It's like blogging, except you don't have to stick to a niche.

    Well, let's see....I probably spend at least two hours a day.  It seems to me that some Hubbers just have more hours in their day than I do.  I'll never understand how some Hubbers have full time jobs, and yet they seem to be on HP far more often than me:  writing, commenting, etc.
    I am retired and have my days open and I guess I could send more time here, but I would miss working in the yard baking, and projects like do-it-yourself.
    Someone asks me how money per hour I earn.  Trust me, you don't want to know!  It would be discouraging.
    HP is my hobby now, because I just love being here with others who don't want to get rich quick?

    I spend about an hour in the morning reading those items from my feed that interest me and commenting on most of them..cup of java in hand. This period gives me the opportunity to discover HP members I may have previously missed. 

    Later, after dinner usually, I check my email for latest HP notifications and read anything listed that strikes my fancy, since they are written by hubbers I follow. That usually takes the best part of an hour, too, and includes reading and making comments.

    Any time I open the site and find that I have comments (I don't get a lot), I answer those immediately (and gladly), but that only takes minutes.

    I don't publish as many hubs as others do (I'm still writing--mostly fiction--but with another end in mind), but when I do publish a non-fiction article, the various components of accomplishing it add a considerable amount of time to the total. I do most of my research online, outline in Word, write the article (also as a Word document to be cut-and-pasted in HP), find appropriate photos or illustrations, decide on the layout.  I'd say all of that takes me four or five hours. (Ten or fifteen years ago, I could have done it in about half that amount of time, but I've slowed considerably.)

    Anything indulged in to an extreme might be termed an addiction. While HubPages is undoubtedly enjoyable--both publishing and reading the work of other writers--there are other activities (including other forms of work) calling my name every day. I have to plan my time and diversify my energy.  Most people do, even those retired from "regular" 8-5 jobs.

    I spend about two to three hours,commenting,reading hubs and answering questions.  My writing time is separate and that's prob three hours or more if I  don't get distracted. Lately I've been logging on everyday as well.

      It gets to be a habit, addiction, necessity, and just plain fun!

    I spend about 3 to 4 hours a day when on break. When I'm in college I can only afford 30minutes a day as an Electrical Engineer major.

      I'm amazed you can spend so much time being an EE major!

    I can spend hours on Hub Pages, usually 3-5 if I'm writing a good hub or two, reading other interesting hubs, or strolling through the forums.
