How frequently do you publish? Do you have a system?

    I have heard a few theory's of timing benefits for publishing.  ie;  several benefits come with publishing at the same time between publishing ie; once every four days.

    Re your methods to just publish when you think of a topic you find interesting.

    Are there benefits to publishing everyday?  ie; the more, the quicker, the better

    At what frequency do we burn out some followers?  Too frequent publishing, Topics just too depressing, topics just far overdone, or like I feel, a true follower doesn't tire.

    Can you please let me know what is you strategy or schedule for publishing, and how that effects your account, and also your inspiration,  if does so

    Very much appreciate it, if this makes sense.

    I definitely get more comments when I publish only once every few days, but since I have so much going on, I just write and publish when I have the time.  I think you're right about burning people out when you post too often about subjects that are either too ranting or depressing.  I don't notice any big difference in overall traffic depending on the times and how often I publish.

    I publish when I am done writing a hub. I start writing it when I have something to say.

    No schedule. No pressure.  I usually have plenty to say, but sometimes I don't.  It is tharpt simple for me.

      thanks Pcunix,

      I can totally relate and work best this way.  I have 31 hubs in progress.  Idea are so often I start a hub right away, and finish it later

      The only downfall is I end up working too much on them instead of what I should be working on, like comments!

      I have no set pattern - or even a system. At times I'm prolific, others sporadic. I'm (now) more likely to write for the purpose of turning my words into $'s. I also have other accounts, that are purely commercial.

      Having said that, I still publish hubs that are a pleasure to write, less work - more hobbyist. I don't know whether others like that I do that, I just know that writing for the sheer enjoyment of it beats any other form of writing.

      Oh yeah ... and I still pay the same attention to my hubs, whatever they're written for smile

      I have 1 unpublished hub that I have written. I am not going to write any more hubs. I am happy with what I wrote and see if it will become a 1 hit wonder. I give my deepest gratitude to the staff of hubpages to let my hub stay on here. It is not published because it is too short but I have written what was neccessary and stopped because any more writting will take away the quality of my hub. For me quality is my number 1 issue for my writting. Thank you. Go in peace.

      Some days I can do from 5-8. Other times I might do one for the week.

      I find doing a big group stops me wondering about the numbers - when you do a handful, usually at least one starts to get google hits within the first 12-24 hours (or most of mine do, anyway.)

      I don't really care about the followers - yes it's nice to have them - but I want the google hits.

      So the more I can write - the better!

      I'm trying to stick to a system I've started of releasing 3 hubs within a couple days then not releasing another few until I have completed some solid back linking work on all 3. This I'm guessing will be taking me about a the better part of 5 days to complete so I'd say 3 a week is going to be a good number for me.If you don't do any strong back linking work then I would say it's really does not matter how often you kick them out,the more the merrier.

        Thanks a ton Benjamin, sounds like a really cool pattern to me!  Let me know if you can if you are seeing consecutive increase in numbers over time

      I have published a total of around 30 hubs in 2 years.  That is not much at all.   I am going to try to change my ways, though.  I have until now just basically publish mostly creative writing hubs.  Unfortunately these types of hubs don't do well on HP.  Some other non creative writing hubs that I have, even ones that may not be written that well, often get 10 times the visitors.

      I am going to document through hub pages and blogs my learning of "creating an online presence".  If I write often, I am hoping I will gain a lot of traction.

      The one thing that I would suggest is that you just start writing and polish what you write as you get better (maybe you are already good but I find that often I don't want to publish because I want what I write to be perfect).  That is at least what I am doing.  I know that my writing skills outside of creative writing need to be improved so I am going to start publishing and see what happens.  I also need to gain skills that deal with layout and how the overall hub appears to others.  I have a ton to say and I know you do also so just write about it.  I was very tentative also but I will give that up and try to produce many more hubs and see what happens.

        It's funny Ben, Last year I could do a hub a day no problem, but it is within my personality to stress my self out so I published 130 and had another 40 unpublished ready to go.

        I vowed when I came back [oo a whole week later ha] I would publish at a pace I could manage.  11 hubs in 5 months before would have been embarrassing.  Now, I really do write for me, and to some as stated followers aren't important the numbers are, and I agree if you are writing to make a lot of money, having said that my priorities lye within my followers, their dedication is support I could never repay

        Thanks Ben,

      Actually - I'd get with prolific right now if certain apsects of working online would actually work. Like my internet connection for e.g.

      *grumble grumble*

      I need to think of reasons to be cheerful ...

        miaow?  translat. "I beg your pardon?"  I made YOU pee?  no, dear girl, other way around.  And I don't appreciate it because I was headed out to have lunch with my daughter and I had to change my pants!  Still, its ok to laugh.  But see, lately I've been coughing, and I have this bad habit of waiting to long - then I cough, and have to run change.  Or else I would smell bad all day.  can't have that.  Yes, I'm over 40, how much over 40 I will not say on account of people would feel sorry for me!!

        I'm not retired yet though.   Bladders wear out in some people in their 20s - I've had this weak bladder thing since way back in the day when I was in high school, even!  My best friends remember that everytime they made me laugh I had to run to the bathroom!  great to be remembered for that, eh!  smile
