Making Money Online - Linked to Hubmania
I wanted to write a Hub about Hubpages – The Addiction. However, after checking the site, I noticed there are several Hubs published about it, so I decided to give it a different spin.
As you know, it’s important to have regular check ups and the most recent one I had, I got diagnosed with Hubmania. I don’t know how the Doctor arrived at that conclusion but the dialogue we had is below:
Elena: "Hello Doctor."
Dr Slocum: "Hello Elena, how are you? I just need to ask you a few questions."
Dr Slocum: "What are one of the first things you do in the morning?"
Elena: "I log on to Hubpages." (Elena goes on to explain the site)
Dr Slocum: "Do you have any thing that persistently dominates your thoughts?"
Elena: "Yes Doctor, I’m always thinking about the next Hub to write."
Dr Slocum: "What are your hobbies?"
Elena: "Hubbing, writing on the internet, Blogging."
Dr Slocum: "Hubbing?"
Elena: (Explains the meaning).
Dr Slocum: "I see. So you use the computer a lot. Do you have any friends you visit or who visit you?"
Elena: "Yes Doctor, I visit my Hubber friends online regularly on Hubpages Hubspace. They are really nice people."
Dr Slocum: (with a worried frown) "I mean normal friends."
Elena: (getting defensive) "They are normal Doctor. Is there a problem?"
Dr Slocum: "Well, not really but it’s nice of you to have friends you see in reality."
Elena: (Gives the doctor one of her piercing stares, without even blinking)
Doctor: (Coughs nervously.)
Dr Slocum: “Ok. Lets move on to your eating Habits? Do you eat well and do you take time to enjoy your meal?”
Elena: “Yes, Doctor – I eat well and sometimes eat while reading, commenting or interacting on Hubpages.”
Dr Slocum: “Mmmh…. I see.”
Elena: Thinking (“why is he looking at me funny? Doesn’t he sometimes eat while workng in his office?”)
Dr Slocum: “Is everything okay? Do you have any worries?”
Elena: “Not really doctor, but I do get a bit bothered when my Hubscore drops. I feel I have to keep on writing to keep it up.”
Dr Slocum: “Hubscore?”
Elena: (Explains the meaning).
Dr Slocum: (Writes some notes).
Dr Slocum: “Well, Elena from what you have told me and all this issue of Hubbing, Hubscore, Hubbers, Hubpages and Hubspace - it seems you have a condition called Hubmania. The remedy would be to spend less time on the computer. Meanwhile, maybe you should think of asking Hubpages for compensation, as it started when you signed up with them.”
Elena: “I don’t think its necessary doctor besides, they place Ads on my Hubs which earns me money. They also publish my articles for free.”
Dr Slocum: “Okay Elena – your decision. Take care of yourself. Don’t over do things.” (he smiles, the appoinment is over)
Elena: (smiles at him) Thank you. Doctor.
Dr Slocum: Closes his door and thinks “strange lady.”
Elena: Walks out of his office and thinks “weird Doctor.”
Before driving off, she switches on her mobile and goes on the internet to see what's happening in Hubspace......

- I Have Got Hubpages Addiction
I have been here on HubPages only for over two months and I got the bug. I should be doing this and that but no I sit here reading or writing hubs. There must a cure for it. Maybe there is an anti-hub-biotic....
