    Just out of curiousity, do you spend more time writing your own HubPages or reading others'?

    It varies.

    During the HubLove contest, it was definitely more time writing, but now I am only publishing a Hub every week or two, so it's probably about 50/50.

    I wish I had more time to read Hubs, because I never get to all the ones written by the Hubbers I am following, let alone having time to browse for undiscovered gems.

    Oh, for that life of leisure on that tropical island with that high-speed internet connection ...

    I spend more time reading others' hubs. I need to spend more time writing but I like to see all the opinions and ideas out there. smile

    I spend very little time reading other hubs. If I'm here I'm either working on my own hubs or making trouble in the forum smile

    I think I spend a lot more time reading. People here have so much interesting stuff to share. I do try to post at least one hub a week, but sometimes life has other ideas.

    That's cool...

    How often do you guys find yourself clicking on ads you're interested in?

      Almost never.  Murphy's Law dictates that the only ones I'd like to click on are the ones in my own Hubs - which I'm not allowed to click on!

    Yup, I use the forums more then anything else here. I do enjoy reading other Hubs, they really are good and do have a nice quality to them. I think most of the Hubbers are good writers and I love reading there content. You just can't forget you need to make Hubs, I make them slowly but I collect a lot of information and data before writing and publishing. I'm hoping to soon get out of data collecting (being f-ing lazy) and write more Hubs. smile
