I love this outlook!

I found the same thing.
I think it all depends on what you measure your success by. If you find the pure quality and length of your hub to be personal success then that is wonderful while I feel that at the same time some topics are covered just fine in few words
I feel the same way you do Rock_nj. I get more satisfaction for myself on one amazing hub, but I agree that I would do better here on Hubpages if I were to spend my time creating more hubs.
Me too . . . we are all at the google search engineʻs command.
I agree and can get frustrated at times when the hubs I have spent the least amount of time on get significant traffic.

I have this same problem. If I am working on a topic that i feel needs a lengthy hub then most likely I am working on multiple small ones as well. Some topics are covered just fine in a simpler hub.
Skarlet I agree with you. I am on the last paragraph of a 2000 word hub (My longest ever) and it has taken me a week and a half. That's too long for me.

I respect that very much. I just feel that certain topics can be covered in shorter hubs if that is all it takes to write quality article while other topics need the length and time to get the point across.

That's very respectable...not many people have that kind of patience

This is a little surprising to me...where else do you take your creativity?
Moon Daisy says
I really like this answer as I definitely end up publishing hubs that I am not happy with and altering them. Sometimes after working on a hub for so long, it becomes a blur so I like to publish it and then make changes as I go.
Steven Pearson says
I guess your saying that the success of a hub more depends on its google friendliness and chance?
I am very similar in my writing. I try not to overwhelm myself with a hub that is too long and write shorter ones that I hope to get better at.
Thats exactly how I write!

Every single perso works at their own pace and if it makes you feel any better It has taken me months just to get the courage to begin writing. If you would like more traffic to your hubs try getting them out through some sort of social networking.
Valerie Washington says
Good for you for being involved despite your busy schedule! I would never be able to do all of that and write quality hubs.
That is a great outlook!

James Bowden says
That is basically what I do...I feel that some topics are covered just fine in a more simple hub, while others need much more detail and time put into them. I like to alternate and give the topic that I am passionate about at the time the long hub.
DS Duby says
You have a very good point on both ends. In some ways i think it depends on your luck and what you are looking for out of your hubs.
It seems that is the most successful method
Keith Engel says
As this would normally make sense and does in many cases, sometimes it just does not work out that way. I believe that a lot of it is geared toward who is looking for what and for when. But of course quality helps.

This does make sense, but sometimes despite how interested someone may be in a subject their skills could vary from someone else's
Devika Primić says
You totally get what I was asking! I would say both too
