I keep making hubs when I should be sleeping instead. Anyone else guilty of this? Or guilty of doing something else but your not because your writing hubs?
Hey Origin, I'm afraid I'm sleeping when I should be writing hubs! Actually I love to write at night-so quiet and mysterious somehow-but recently my body said 'Enough!' and I am obeying.
Hope you do get a couple of zzz's!
I think I will after I make one more hub. Just one more.
Hubs are like potato chips, you can't have just one...
yes plenty, like working on work!
hubbing is so addictive once you start writing. my last hub took a while and I remember my son saying, mom, walk away for a while.
but I couldn't until it's finished.
btw, I like the profile pic you decided on!
Been there done that , it is an addiction eventually all of us have to gain some self-control again.
I quit smoking when I was supposed to be writing hubs, now I am writing hubs when I should be sleeping, eating, bathing... I can't catch up! LOL.
I hear that, I have skipped a few meals.. not intentionally, but it's because I was in the middle of a hub and I didn't look at the time. I have gone to bed late on several occasions though. But it's all good, I have tomorrow off so I can sleep in a bit.
Now we can't have hubbers turn to dust because they no longer eat, Origin! Heh heh. Sometimes when I'm on a writing roll, I treat it like a job. I take breaks and a lunch so my body doesn't freeze in the typing position forever!
Hey there, Faybe-how's the quit coming? I will not lie about mine, I cheated yesterday. I smoked 3 of the danged things on my way to see my surgeon. Hip replacement surgery is 2 weeks from today, so I guess that's my excuse for lighting up. I did make it 12 days smoke-free, and today is coming along just fine...so far!
Just have to start again!
I got the Blu-cigs. That really helped! I am still puffing on them, and boy am I glad I bought them. I am free of regular cigarettes, these are just nicotine replacement. You should try chewing on mint flavored tooth picks, and my dad used to suck on cloves after he quit.
Oh oh, a hub coming on. Tricks to stay quit! Thanks Lorlie!
Ever try the nicotine gum? If so, does it work for you?
On the other hand, I keep posting in these forums when I SHOULD be making hubs instead....!
And btw, ever heard of choosing between making hubs or making love?! Yep, I'm guilty of preferring the former too.... oh yes...!
yep, the best I ever had, I mean, wrote!
See, what I mean...
Haha, wow! I don't know about that one, my male nature may take over for about 5-10 minutes, and then I'll be right back to hubbing lol.
Frequently! After 11 months you would think I'de have learnt by now.
Yeah, I'm writing hubs (or reading hubs or promoting hubs or posting on forums) when I should be doing dishes or doing homework or doing laundry.... eventually I get caught up only to start the process over again....
This is one reason why I wish I had this as a full-time job, because it's A) fun and B) I'm willing to work lots of overtime even unintentionally.

I just watched a youtube video where the guy said that he creates 20 articles a day. He didn't mention what platform he used but, it made me wonder how many quality hubs could someone realistically write a day.

I have tried all the old tips here for improving hubs and recently I have also tweaked all the idled ones, I have deleted a lot and moved a lot more elsewhere...and I have tried waiting, and after all this my earnings are the worst they have ever been! I was actually doing better before I...

Do you find yourself spending many hours on hubpages instead of something else?Are you so consumed that your work is not getting done in other areas of your life? It is a bit addicting!

Is it harder for guys to write hubs?I really enjoy hubpages, but quite often I find myself perusing hubs that aren't relevant to me. I'm a guy. I'm not sensitive or poetic. I can cook well enough to make pancakes and PBJ sandwiches. Before I met my wife I was sleeping on a bed roll. I'm barely...

Read here that when one hubber did this, traffic improved. I thought the formerly called 'sleeping' hubs, now those not 'featured', would be pulled off Google, anyways. So I'm curious that when someone unpublished their 'sleeping' hubs that this improved traffic. Has anyone else found that doing...
