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!
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 ...
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 .
Good luck in your recovery -- I have been in the iron clutches of my hub addiction for over three years, and some days it feels like I'll never be able to find my way out. Now I'm off to write a hub about addiction recovery.
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
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.
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 . . .
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! :_:
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...
I've been a little down about not having received a payout for nearly two years of participation here, but I'm looking at Triond, another writing site, and I must say how grateful I am for the amount of control I have...
I have been on Hub Pages about a year and I have written about 27 Hubs and they have received close to 5000 views, which I felt was not bad and my status hovers between 82-88. Last week I had about 8 of my Hubs...
