    I see people already creating more tan 80 hubs over 3 weeks, when i barely able to do 10 hubs...How do they do it?

    Maybe you should rewrite the title of your query ... ask them directly. I for one don't know the answer because I'm not one of them. I can only guess.

    Perhaps some write in the way that others talk - instead of being a chatterbox they're a hubalot. Or maybe they just have a hundred different thoughts and ideas clanging around in their minds and writing them out is a relief.

    And there are different forms of writing. There's fiction stuff - whereby you totally fabricate a piece of writing - using your imagination and on occasion, weave in a few facts. And non-fiction, whereby the writing is more factual, based on real events - be they personal, reviews, data collection or whatever.

    Anyway - this is just guess work, as I said. I'm not a superhubber smile

    The more I read of all these hubbers typing away at full spoeed, the more I think I'll get writing some myself,  but then if I do who is going to read all theirs, they need support, then when I do get round to writing all mine, they can support me...

    It is amazing though.   3 cheers to them all........
    What an Inspiration, to us lazy ones,,,,

    I've wondered about this myself.  No offense to the UberHubbers, but I think that quality is sacrificed for quantity in some instances. 

    I have often assumed that people are just taking a "buckshot approach" to hubbing, and are kind of all over the place as far as topics/themes.  I guess that's one of the cool things about Hub Pages, and the internet, though; you can write whatever you want, and there is someone out there with that interest, willing to read it. smile

    Am not sure if those creating so many hubs have a full time job away from home lol

      I have such a stressful job that hubbing is a way to relax and get my creative thoughts out.

    I don't have a full time job away from home, and I still can't see how the hell people produce so much content.  LOL.  I usually have a child hanging off of each arm and one crawling up my ass, so that's the excuse I'm using.

      Oh, you brought back memories of my full time freelance writing days. The five years I was a full time freelance writer I had two children still in diapers. I wrote full time, had my publishing company in full swing, wrote two books and had a pretty successful website and a print magazine going. LOL! I was in my early to mid 30's. Man, did I have energy then. I wrote when my kids were napping, and late at night. I am an insomniac so that was easy for me. However, I do not recommend this for everyone. I also have to put in, man, was I exhausted. LOL!

    Some people purchase content, and others spam. But for those who are actually able to write so much within a month or so that write their own stuff, they just think of things fast. I know my first month or so, I was able to produce a lot of stuff bc I was just writing about stuff I knew, so I didn't have to do any research; all I needed was pictures (most of which I used were my own at the time) and amazon products.

    I think a lot of people have 10-12 topics simmering at all times and just need a push like this to finish them.  So, initially it looks like they are cranking them out at record speed.  It would be hard to sustain that kind of speed indefinitely.  But, maybe they can.  We'll see.

    If I know the topic I can write a quick hub (400 words) in 15 minutes plus another 5min to find a photo, put the capsules together and publish.

    For the 100 challenge I am buying unique content for some of the topics I have no interest in - I am a terrible procrastinator if I am writing about something I have no interest in. Why write about a topic I find boring?  I like the money potential of the keywords thats why

    girly_girl09posted 7 years ago

    I have a really broad spectrum of interests. I mean BROAD. lol I don't know many other "girly girls" who enjoy the topics that I do. Therefore, there is a ton of stuff that I can write about and that I ENJOY writing about. This allows me to write a lot of content in a short period of time.

    I'm a full-time student who just switched majors and am no longer working full-time at my political job. I've had a lot of time on my hands the last few weeks and that is why I'm able to pump out so many hubs. This fall, when I start my new major, I'll not have much time to dedicate to hubpages but hopefully, by then, my goal of $150-$200/month will be reached. I know the only way I can get there in such a short amount of time is to write, write, write quality content. I'm well on my way there.

    I've only done two so far for the challenge, but I have about 15 in development and 100 more ideas in an excel sheet.

    This is what I do all day lol

    I am writing them on the hoof. If I already have an idea - 20 minutes start to finish. If I get stuck at word 150 it goes in the "to do" folder for when my brain is working better big_smile

      girly_girl09posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I am constantly "getting stuck" in this challenge so far. I've only published two! lol

      It's not that I don't have enough time or ideas, it's that I have too many ideas. While I'm working on one hub, I'll think up an idea for another and save that one and start a new one. I have about 15 in development (some almost finished lol) and just keep starting new ones. Eventually, I'll go back to them, but right now I can't, for the life of me, focus on one topic. There is just so much fun stuff out there to cover!

        Mark Knowlesposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        It is really easy to lose focus - especially if you are covering multiple topics. I will be interested to see if Lissie's approach - buying content and using a new hubber name is more effective than what I am doing.

          Lissieposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I tend to write a bunch on the same topic - on my ID I'd have to drip them in - but with the "new me" I will just publish the lot all together. I'm wasting a lot less time on comments than you are Mark :-)

        Whitney05posted 7 years ago in reply to this

        This is my problem a lot of the time. I get so exited about the new topic that I can't think about any that I may have had sitting blank for days or weeks. Right now, for instance, I have 3 that I've been sitting on and I've published or composed 12 others that I found more interesting. I'm going to have to push myself hard to finish those 3, as I'm just not into the topics anymore, but really want to write them.

          It would be better if we could see which pages were genuinely sucessful. Its possible to pick up clues but we never get a definitive statement. The hundred pages in a week type hubs may never earn a penny. On the other hand, maybe somone has a great formula. How will we ever know?

          1. Lissie profile image87
            Lissieposted 7 years ago in reply to this

            To be honest you won't. Some of my hubs are purely designed to provide links to other sites and its those sites I want ranked not the hub -the hubs successful if it gives me a do follow link

            Other hubs are testing Adsense, or maybe eBay - but then others are for backlinks AND make money with one of those methods. The hubscore hardly ever reflects which hubs make me the most money ...

    It will definitely be interesting to compare results at the end; looking forward to it!

    I personally wouldn't/couldn't buy content, only because I'd end up changing things or editing it so much that I might as well have written it myself! hahaha!

    If you're not a perfectionist like me, I think buying content could prove really useful and save tons of time. Unfortunately, I don't think it'd personally save me much time because of my need to edit.

    At my last job, we had a "3 sets of eyes" rule on EVERYTHING that went out. I'd always take a look at press releases first and practically re-write them. The guy who wrote them was good, but I'd always find stuff to change. We'd joke around about how I should write them since I always spent so much time editing. (I hate writing press releases, though)

    I think everyone takes a different approach when building a hub.  My hubs are "how-to" type pages and they generally take me a day or so to complete.   I incorporate a lot of photos and other capsules.  So, I don't create that many hubs in a short time.  However, like you, I have seen quite a few hubbers that can really churn them out! smile Neither way is right or wrong, it just depends on what your goals are on Hubpages and what you are looking to achieve here.  My goal here is to earn money, mostly through affiliate sales, where someone else may be here just to write a nice article and earn money from adsense.  It really depends.

      Writing for enjoyment is definitely less complicated.  However, I write online to make a living, so I deal with any stresses that come with the job.  It certainly beats having to go out to work everyday! wink

    I dunno how they do it...I mean, I know how I would do it & I know what it would take. But I also know it would take a lot of the FUN of writing or creating something out of the equation for me and I don't think I'm interested in that at this point.

    I already do a lot of writing that I HAVE to produce... 

    I also don't know how serious writers can produce serious writing all the time, and how the silly writers can produce their stuff all the time.  I'm kind of eclectic--it probably shows.
