    I'm interested to know how other hubbers pace themselves for the long haul. I have been here 3/4 months and found it really enjoyable, even if at times frustrating, at the same time you are constantly learning, researching, writing or asking questions trying to become a better writer or absorb knowledge to earn more money. What are your thoughts, does anyone else think they have become "a mouse on the wonderwheel".

      I have been a mouse on that wheel since 1991.

      Mouse on the wonder wheel!  LOL.  I wish I were talented enough to create a graphic of that.

      Yes, my mind still has a lot to absorb, even though my first hub was published 9/10/09.  You've only been here a few months.  Trust me, it only gets worse.

      The hardest part for me is figuring out what is the best investment of my time here on HP.  It's slowly becoming clear to me.

    Yes! Lots to learn, and even more to do. Gotta step back and reevaluate from time to time based on what you've been learning.

    But shoot, it's fun.

      That's not a mouse. It's a hamster.  Know your rodents.

    I have been addicted since I joined a couple of months ago. I have slowly learned to be ruthless with my time as I would come on for 10 mins and still be here 10 hours later.

    I now allocate time to each activity each day ie:

    writing 1 hr
    promotion 1 hr
    reading 1 hr
    research 1 hr
    hub hopping 30 mins

    can't say I stick to it but it makes me feel in control smile

    I don't think you should pressure yourself Brian.  Just create goals and try to achieve it.  If you do great, if you don't, don't beat yourself up - you can always start again with something more manageable.  Ultimately if this is something that you like doing, things will evolve.

    After four years of making Hubs, (...looks around...) I'm not seeing anything resembling a wheel on my end here.  Except for my computer mouse.

      It is not an HP induced wonderwheel. It is a life induced wonderwheel. And you are on Yes you are!smile

      Edit: SomewayOuttaHere’s picture certainly and accurately portrays MY current life adventures…

        Given that I'm packing to go spend a week in the woods with minimal running water, no electricity, no phones, no internet, vault toilets and a solar shower, I find it highly unlikely.

        Add to that fact that I don't have any sort of incoming television signal or cable service in my house, don't own a cell phone, have never owned a car and haven't driven in over 20 years, it's even more improbable.

    LOL, concede.

    Edit: I envy you re: the car, such a pain…
