    I'm trying so hard to keep up with my comments, read my email, read entrys in the contest that I want to read, and trying to write new Hubs, there just aren't enough hours in my day.  I stay up late at night, and wake up early in the AM to play catch up.  I'm not complaining:  I'm loving every minute of it!

      I feel the same. When I started I never realised how much I would enjoy HubPages.  I also find myself on here late into the night, with consequences though, I find it difficult to sleep, so tend only to do that at the week ends.

      It's an addiction. Many of us are in the same boat. smile

        Yes, I used to always be in bed before 11.30 before I started writing here, now I'm lucky to get to bed by 2am.

        I think you're right, AEvans.  I can't wait to open up my computer in the wee hours of the morning to check my HubPages!!!

          There are worse things to be addicted to...Although eating a bar of Cadburys never takes so long!

    I've been feeling that way too.  When I got up this morning I said "I WILL get everything done today that I have on my list!"

    Then I got interrupted by an unexpected call from a customer and had to run out to see them. 

    Amazingly enough, I still managed to finish up my list when I got back and even more amazingly it was only 3:00 PM.

    I gave myself an extra piece of chocolate for that :-)

    I feel like it will take me forever to get caught up to where I want to be again. My hubby and I started a new business in September and it feels like it is swallowing alot of my HP time I use to do. Now I feel lucky if I can read one or two hubs and post a comment, let alone find time to post my own hub. I don't see us having alot of free time yet till the snow sets in.
    My apologies to anyone who may have thought I have forgot about them. I miss my HP addiction!

      Hey, I'm catching up!  I've spent all day today (Sat.) reading new Hubs.  Some have been short stories and that takes a while.  I'll get there one day. I still want to read the contest entries.

    Congratulations on being one of the 5% of hubbers who actually read the hubs of those they follow. smile

      I do read all my follower's Hubs.  I may be a couple of days after they're published, but I do read them.  Just between us though:  I have a confession to make.  Sometimes I'm really pushed for time, and if I see it's going to be a LONG  short story, I'll bookmark it and go back when I have more time.

        There's nothing wrong with bookmarking a hub to go back to read later. It's done by a number of people. You should not feel the need to worry about reading other people's hubs. There's no need to apologize for not having the time to do so. Sometimes life gets in the way and that's just the way it is. wink

          I feel like it's a courtesy thing.  If a fellow Hubber likes me enough to read and comment on my work, the least I can do is reciprocate.  Besides, I learn from all of my followers.
