I just began posting hubs about two months ago.
I have become slightly addicted to HP, which isnt good because I should be spending free time looking for a new job...
But I seem to magically land here on HP instead of Job search sites. And I dont think I'll be making a living here anytime soon.
I signed in the other day and my Hub on POP ART was listed on the front page! Yay
I may have to ban myself from the site for awhile.
Dont know if any others have had this problem, with spending too much time here.
You'll find that a lot of us are addicted to hubpages.
And you never know, you might just end up making more money here than you think.
I'm not addicted, but I will agree with most of your post.
Seriously, Cags? You're not addicted? How many forum posts do you have?
Just because I have a lot of forum posts, doesn't make me an addict. But, nice try.
I'm not addicted. I've never even made a forum post!
You're both raving lunatics. I can help you, but you first need to admit you have a problem.
You are definitely so strange and weird! NO ONE ELSE has ever been addicted to HPages! Honestly! We all just spend a little bit of time here and never ever binge out hubbing.
so yeah. I guess maybe sometimes I overdo it, but only when I only have a couple other things I should be doing - like, you know, sleeping or working. Unimportant things. So NO, I definitely would not consider myself addicted.
well, maybe a little bit to the forums - but only when I really really have nothing else to do that's important, like paying bills or getting dressed. But otherwise, no, I think you're the only hubber who is addicted. Really!
Hubpages is a great place to spend your free time. It's having alone time while helping others. It is like having a intern or voluntary job, just online
The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is look to see how my Hubs are doing and how much I've earned during the night. I do this again every time I return to my computer throughout the day, and take a look about every ten minutes when I'm working on my computer.
I can't help it - I think it's addiction ...
Pretty much the same here… When I reach payout (I am creeping there 1 cent at a time…), I am banning looking at AdSense for a month!
What...you LEAVE your computer during the day???
Crikey, I do all of that too, it must be contagious
I, too, am addicted -- but don't rule out making a living! Maybe not here on Hubpages specifically, at least not for a while, but plenty of us do earn a living online. I make my living with a combination of freelance clients, a couple of my own sites, and four affiliate writing sites (including Hubpages). My solution to being unable to find a job I liked was to make one .
Hello... my name is Klara and I've been addicted to Hubpages for eight months now. I feel GREAT just saying it out loud!!! WOW!!!
Hi my name is David - I am not totally addicted to Hub Pages just yet. The main reason is because I have to go to work for several hours a day, and Hub pages is one of the restricted sites on the work's computers - so no access at work
I am very good as I resist the temptation to have a quick 'fix' at work using my iPhone too
You lot are sad!!! Be like me and don't post..ever.
Better watch it, you never know if someday you'll end up like me and making Hubpages part of the work day instead -- even worse, I got my employee/husband addicted too! My home is a horribly toxic environment.
I'll tell you what hurts. What really hurts is when you think you've made some pretty good hubber friends. you know? and you think you've been there for people. Then when I don't even come to Hubpages for two and a half days and NO ONE EVEN NOTICES!! or if they notice they are way to polite or something and so no one says anything - no one say BOO! I mean, I thought I was important enough in all your lives that when I stayed away (not because I HAD to stay away, but then I did have to see that one Dr. who for some reasons thinks I'm obsessed about hubbing - I'm really not) when I stayed away all of you fickle hubbers act like I wasn't even gone.
That really hurts. Big time.
Look - save the sweet talk for someone who cares - all I want to know is how did you manage to stay away for a whole TWO AND A HALF DAYS!! I mean, where is your sick note? Tsk! Standards these days are falling...
I wasn't sick. I really had to work. Really! After all, my Hubber checks don't keep me in Depends so I can really hang out at the computer ALL THE TIME! I have to work now and then so I can make a difference here with all my close buddies! I wasn't aware I needed a note - but I suppose I could get one . . .
Course you could! You have a computer, haven't you? Just make one up......and don't let it happen again. I want to see those sick notes in future lady!!
LOL, hey you know I'm only kidding
I've a cheek to talk anyway. I lurk more than post then have a burst for a day or two...which was fine when I was churning out hubs, but I'm still kinda slowed up with the algo thingie.
I did sort of notice. vaguely, that you lurk and post irregularly - in fact, I've decided to use you as my new role model - that way no one will have to know that I'm here, spying, as it were!
It may have only been two days. I'm not so good with calendars and days and time and stuff like that. so, yeah, two whole day, and I didn't even get up during the night to log on! but that was cuz I was so exhausted from moving around and working. Not that any of you care! :_:
from now on, then, no one will know whether I'm actually here, lurking and spying, so they better be nice to me!!
It is a nice place to be to read hubs and answer relevant questions. However, I am not addicted. I just like meeting people and sharing.

Is anyone making their living off of Hubpages?Has anyone been able to quit their day job and actually make a living off of HubPages? It seems like a tall order, but some Hubbers seem quite successful.

Are any of you hubbers full time (making a living) writers?
by Jerrico Usher 10 years ago
If you care to share with the class, I'm curious as to what each of you came to HubPages to achieve, was it to find a way to earn money from your writing only, or was it because you wanted an audience for your work, did you accidentally find HubPages while doing research then thought, hmm this is...

I'm having problems with everything on Hub Pages right now. I cannot comment on my own Hubs, which is preventing me from participating in conversations. I cannot correct two problems that were noted two weeks ago. I am logged on, I've cleared my cache, I keep trying at different times every day,...

I just submitted my second article. I've waited a couple of days but still haven't even receive 50 views yet. I'm concerned about it. I have been reading other peoples articles to see how they receive so many views and fans. But I dont fully understand RSS Feeds, social bookmarking sites and social...
