What is your secret Hub Pages addiction?
Late at night, when I can't sleep, I sit on the couch with my tablet and read cat Hubs. (Keep 'em coming!)
Answering questions. It's more interesting than writing hubs.
These questions are addictive. I started out visiting this section as ways to find good ideas for hubs. It has become more than that.
I never really had any particular signs of "addiction" related to HubPages, but recently I haven't had a lot of work but have been home a lot more than I had been in the past. I find that whatever I'm doing on the computer (sometimes it's actually work, sometimes it's just "whatever"), I keep popping back onto HubPages to see if anything new and interesting has shown up in either Answers or the forums. Very little new and/or even interesting ever shows up for the person who a) has a case of boredom, and b) doesn't really have the time to read Hubs. (Of course, there's always looking to see what traffic numbers have done from one hour to the next. LOL )
So for me, seeing what I can come up with for an answer to questions here gives me a few minutes of "mental challenge" before I return "from whence I came".
At this point, it's kind of looking a little like an addiction to me because it's just kind of automatic and mindless that I've started making this behavior a habit. What's worse is that when I don't find any "excitement" on here when I pop on, I just come back twenty minutes later to see if anything showed up since I last left. I KNOW that there can be - like - ten hours between the last question and any new ones, and I know that even several new ones won't always interest me. Still, I'm pathetically looking for something "kind of fun" to break up the monotony of whatever else I'm doing on the PC.
It's not even like I don't have plenty of things I could be doing. I'm just kind of looking for those fifteen-second "blips of activity" to break up some of the longer stretches of tedium.
Oh well... It'll pass. I'll MAKE it pass. For now, though, it has been looking a little pathetically addictive, as far as I'm concerned. On the flip-side, I suppose it's kind of good to be someone who knows how to break up what's tedious rather than let it get to him/her. (Yeah - that's what I'll keep telling myself........
I haven't had any addictions about HP just spend a limited amount of time and call it a day.
