    Do you think spending 5 hours and more daily on  HubPages is commendable?

      Depends what you are doing.

        Really? Let's say, I hit 2700 words past week on my keyboard on word document.               Today, I edited same, copy and paste on HubPages. Review and publish. I don't think I spent 2 hours.                But is it wise to spent mostly 5 hours plus just to leverage on reading, commenting, posting threads?

      For rookies like myself, five hours a day would be a worthy investment.

      I used to have the time to spend this much writing everyday. Now that I work full time at Walmart this is not possible.

      I just now make slow progress on hubs when I can.

        Your breaks' okay and good. Once in your shoes.                            Now, I spent 30 to 60 minutes to write a page or a paragraph. Saves my neck and waist from wrecking.                       Then I log in 1 or 2 hour, read, comment, post a thread, or article, and log out. Saves my eyes!.

    I think it might be a sign of an unhealthy addiction. Haha

      I had to 'let go' of Twitter last week yikes When I started counting up the hours, I was appalled big_smile

      Haven't been on it for eight days, seven hours, and 10 minutes.

        My big time-waster is Reddit. I end up going down rabbit holes on that site and don't come back up for hours, haha

          Oh, agreed. I was doing some research on Reddit on gangstalking and I was glued to it. There are some strange people on there. Don't go down that particular rabbit hole, you'll have nightmares... not about gangstalking but about the people who think they are victims of it. They live in a parallel universe.

              Reddit is like the edges of old maps before the world was explored: "There Lurk Monsters".

                In some subreddits sure. But some are pretty neat actually. I use Reddit to follow open-source software and related news.

              I mean, I play on Reddit already but now I'm wanting to explore some gangstalking threads to see what kind of bizarre stuff I can find.

                  lol lol But I'm a big fan of fringe stuff, the amount of documentaries I've watched on such things is pretty astounding. This gangstalking reddit rabbit hole sounds like it's right up my alley.

        I definitely spend way too long on HubPages. Ha. Instagram is my social media guilty pleasure. I gave it up for about four days before redownloading . . .

          What has my body got to do with anything? Why are you being so personal?

              I don't know what you are talking about. Maybe you misunderstood what I meant?

              Re: Twitter. I said I have NOT been on it (for over a week).

              And no, I don't have any 'old wives' remedies' for whatever you are suffering. Get up and walk, is my best suggestion.

                Bev, "I had to let go of Twitter last week. When I start counting up the hours, I was appalled."   You would not be far from holding this truth. I beg your pardon if my comment is offensive.     However, isomentrics plank has pump some health into my system. Good to go with tomato-garlic-chutney!

    I spend too much time on the Internet. I left Facebook for a day this past week because it was getting out of hand. On HP I spend too much time on here doing things I don't need to do, like checking stats that aren't going to change any time soon; like looking in the fridge expecting food to appear.

      Just the one day then, Nate? big_smile

      I left FB a couple of years ago. Then Twitter found me. Eight days, nine hours, and 25 minutes.

      I'm going to do that fridge thing right now.

      I think others have alluded to this, but if I was spending my time here writing articles I'd feel okay about spending time here. But instead I'm doing other things that are mostly not productive.

    I will agree with Nate. As I am new and spend time to check stats and earning and when I don't find any significant improvement, I start writing articles. Which is not that easy for me with two little kids.
