    Why am I doing this and wasting my time? Did you ever ask yourself something like that ?

      Why do you think you are wasting your time?

      Are you not having fun?  If you are not, then, yes, this could be a waste of your time because earning money this way is hard, hard work.  Quite possibly it's too much work for some  if they  don't get some enjoyment from it.

      Think I've maybe taken a different meaning from this question than others. I didn't read it as meaning anything specific to Hub Pages, so my earlier reply was in general terms...

    Many, many times, for a great many years. I then learned a very valuable lesson. Whenever I found myself thinking that way, I decided I wasn't going to take part in that activity any more - whatever it may be - and I moved on.

    I wish I had learned the lesson as a younger man but it has been said for millenia that wisdom comes only with age... wink

    I often feel like this.  Only today, I asked myself "what am I doing in here?"  And I was in the toilet.

    I don't understand why you would think this is a waste of time?  If you don't enjoy writing, then I'd do something I did enjoy. I personally like to express myself about different subjects.  I may not be the best writer in the world, but I sure enjoy trying.  If you really do feel like you are wasting your time, maybe you should quit trying.
