Do you find it hard to get off Hubpages and end up staying much longer than you

    Do you find it hard to get off Hubpages and end up staying much longer than you meant to?

    If so, what do you think it is that snags or detains you.

    Yes!  Once I start following links and reading hubs from a specific writer I'm consumed. Luckily I have my timer set for 45 minutes and at least have a reminder to move.

      I plan to drop in for a few minutes to leave a comment or two, but end up spending hours.  Sometimes reading and leaving a comment for someone will generate a hub idea that I know I have to get started right away so it doesn't slip away.

      Jumped over to your profile to meet you.  Amazing how life's hard knocks mold, shape, and change our lives.  Glad you decided to give Hubpages a try.  Loved reading your article on Political Correctness in New York City.  Great hub!

      I'm glad you did.  Following you now after reading your excellent hub on overcoming writers block. Thank you for sharing your tips and techniques on this trying problem.  I will have to try doodling next time I get stuck again.  Hopefully not soon!

    Hello Cathleena,

    No, because I already know that once I enter HubPages that's it, I am here to stay. HubPages is my first step into my new future. I discovered my passion for writing and I want to use the experience I gained from my current job to focus more on empowering other people. I am hoping that through HubPages I will build a strong little community of like minded people, my profile as a writer and earn enough money to work as a Motivator to People full time.

    Your 'Team Leader'
