I want to write somewhat of a blog. It will be updated every day with that day's happenings. I will also be including some product review and such. Do I start a new hub every day or do I just edit my original Hub by adding more capsules?
Scubasara, if you want to write a blog, I suggest you go and join a blogging site like Blogger or Wordpress.com. Of course, we don't want to chase you away, but the plain fact is that HubPages is NOT a blogging site and the setup isn't suitable for blogging.
If you're here just for fun, then I guess that doesn't matter much - if you like it here then you're free to do whatever you like.
However, if you're here with the idea of making some income from your writing, then your idea won't work.
Think of HubPages as your favourite magazine, and write your Hubs as if they were articles in the magazine, not just posts on a blog. They can still be about your progress in "going green". Then you'll get somewhere.
Hubpages isn't a blog site and it isn't at all suitable for that kind of thing. You are best off creating evergreen content, i.e. content that needs infrequent updating and is always of interest.
If you want a blog for talking about that day's happenings, you can set one up for free on wordpress.com. And that's really your best option as you won't make money just talking about your day to day life so there is no point putting Adsense or advertising on it. But it is very good for backlinks to your hubs.
Then what I would recommend is that you create product review hubpages and hubs about other evergreen topics - and link to your new hubs from your blog.
You can also link to your blog from your Hubpages profile so other hubbers who are curious can find your blog.

I edit a transferred in article and by the time I get to the top to look it over my changes have reverted back to how the hub looked before I edited it. So after I re edit again it seems to save. Having to edit twice is...
