    1) Do you find yourself spending so much time online working, or just plain addicted (like I am to this and facebook) that you ignore your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse/family/pet ???

    2) Just so you know, and I think many will  identify, I am new to this JARGON and INFO on hubpages and been busting my butt on here, yet sometimes the way I write on forums, people think I'm lazy but my head is "about to explode"?!LOL -not funny!

    Have a good day!

      LOL. I think I go back and forth on number one. I will spend all day, every day online for weeks and then I will ignore the computer altogether for a while.

      I identify with you on number 2!

      Have a good day yourself!

      Hi Schoolgirlforreal,

      Addicted yes, for about two years.  I was addicted because I knew in my heart that this was a new beginning for me.  I knew that someday it would become second nature and bring the revenue I was looking for.

      I will say I did not put all my time into Hubpages.  I'm a true believer not putting all of your eggs in one basket.  I earn streams of income from many PPC Networks but in the beginning I did not.

      I also busted my butt for a long time but it needed to be done.  I'm a young 42 year-old who sees her future very bright and stressing over money much less.

      I am going to send you a private message with a link to a Hub I wrote recently.  It shares what I have decided to do after being on the computer 30 hours plus per week.  I'm sure it will help you.

      There will come a time when you work smarter not harder.  OK, I'll send you the message.   Keep it up because it will change your life in due time for the better.

          Hi Schoolgirlforreal,
          Yeah, it takes all kinds.

          Your welcome for the information and I will contact you in the near future sharing what I've been working on.  I'm so looking forward to it.  I've been in contact with Adsense and they are getting back to me telling me exactly what to do and what I'm allowed to do.  I'm so excited.  OK, keep it up and don't give up.  It becomes so much fun.  I'm off to meeting up with friends and enjoying a meal.  Have a good day.

        so long, and with a name change returning 4 months ago.  But the forums have changed, I do pop in and out however, suppose I am now.  Its freeing to not need to be doing anything from an obsessive point of view like I use too.  But think I am moving too slow  lol

    Oh, no way, but I totally understand why that can happen so frequently. I have a lot of free time, and very few responsibilities, so the time I spend logged in is not time that I'm taking away from someone or something else. I make a lot of short breaks, anyway. These are the joys of youth.
