On average is it one a day, two a day? I get hubbers block and can't write as often as I would like to. Just curious. My rankings are good so far I think. Thanks
I write 1-2 hubs a week and then other writing on top of that.
I'm wondering the same thing. I have things to write about, but every time I post a new hub, it makes my rankings go down, so now I hesitate to add new ones.
That is up to your time. If you have lot of time you can write one in a day
This statistic is about as useful as average temperature across the hospital
Because of my affiliate business and everything else going on in my world I only write one every few days. I am however working on getting that number up as time goes on.
I write according to how much time I have first, and second picking a good topic for me at the time. 30 hubs in 30 days is like way out of reach at this point.....
I'm too busy to write everyday - I study at the university and work, so unfortunately I write nearly one hub in a week...
Yeah, certainly! I like writing, it brings me satisfaction and pleasure and also it's a way to improve my English, that's by the way another reason why I publish hubs not so often - it takes me far more time to write a hub than to an English speaking person, but I try to do my best...
I don't know if you'll get a real answer to this question; it might be best to ask it of other writing sites other than HP.
I don't think that there are very many AVERAGE HUBBERS here: From what I've seen the bulk of HP Hubbers are ABOVE Average
very well said ....... you are brilliant did i tell you that before, somewhere else
I write when I get the urge becuse otherwise I would feel under pressure.
I am new to hubing,but I think the main point is to write something that makes you feel good, that you feel is interesting and gets you all passionate.
It doesnt matter if it's one or two or a hundred and two a week, what matters is that you feel good about what you wrote
Sometimes I write three in one day... sometimes one a week. It depends on my schedule.
Since I write (mostly) book reviews, I only write when I've finished a book.
One the rare occasion, I may post a how-to.
So there is no rhyme or reason to my posts.
Although...not a direct answer to your forum post...I got'ta say it: "Writer's Write!" I would write 24/7...as long as the inspiration...or at least 1/2 of the inspiration was there!
For Hubs...my ideal amount would be a new poem every other day...but then...this crazy thing called "having a life" keeps getting in the way of that!
There are 96,700 users now registered with HubPages. Based on those statistics, the "average" site user doesn't hardly make Hubs at all.
If web statistics are running true on this site, the group that is most active (meaning people in the forums and making Hubs) is only going to represent about 10% of the overall users. No one answering in this thread is an "average user."
This is very helpful info! Where did you get it?
Of that 96,700 most join and never write a hub, about near a half write one and never return. I certainly wouldn't base any stats on the number of hub members. Now if we actually had the figure of actual hub users who write on a regular basis maybe that would stand up.
Me I usually write a hub once every 3 days or more often if I ain't as lazy as I usually am.
After writing about 35 in 30 days for the first hubchallenge, I've written nothing all summer! I'm hoping to get a few things off my plate soon, though, and have more time again for writing.
Maybe every other day, as a lot of Hubbers have other sites they write for or have their own Blogs.
I used to write one hubs a day. I have written two hubs in a day. Today, I have no time to write a hub a day so i write a hub for three day. Tomorrow, i will write a hub a day
I've been here 10+ days and only have 3 hubs. I take my time and need to be inspired.
I write what I want, yet try to cater to the audiences.
I wish I were more prolific, but for me it is quality over quantity. I wish I was one of those who could do both!
when i find a subject that im interested in i find it easy to write hubs otherwise i find myself in the same boat, usually its things that interest me, or things that i have knowledge in that i want to share
I promised myself to write 1 hub in 2 days, but it's not that easy sometimes. You need the inspiration first, then things will start to flow.
A problem i have is when i have too many ideas, i get stuck not knowing which one to start on. When that happens, i find that it may take days to write a hub.
I need things like the hubchallenge to really give me a push.
Im only prolific when i'm under pressure. Strange isn't it?
I am new to hubpages and I am going to aim for one article every 3-4 days, however, I am interested in attempting the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. We'll see!
When I first started it was like three or four a week,but I recently decided to go back to school so now it's more like one every two or three months.I make a lot of landing pages with photos and videos now just for fun,but as far as writing I should have something finished by december.its a time thing.
I am trying to write one at least twice a week, but having a family makes that hard to do sometimes. As the kids get older I find myself with more time to write.
I just write whenever time allows. sometime I write 2 a day. I just started I want to make sure I am writing decent content, don't want to rush.
I don't say "ok, i'm going to write 5 hubs this week!"
I just write a hub when I get a good idea...
Hmm...I think I average two hubs a day. This isn't a goal of mine, though; I usually just happen to come up with the ideas at random times during the day.
At one point, I was writing about 10-15 articles (around 400 words each) a day (freelance work). When I finally burned myself out, I started writing whenever I felt like it. I'm sure I could produce a lot more than I do, but I don't force it.
I write in spurts. I participate daily. I find if I "force" the writing (of non-technical data), the quality goes down. I thought I had learned this lesson long ago but just did it two days ago and sure enough, not my usual standard. My articles tend to be around 600/700 words but flow naturally. If it doesn't flow, I know to leave it alone for another time.
The Average Hubber Writes How Often?
I just started a week ago and already wrote three hubs. I may not necessarily keep up with that frequency since I only write when I have something meaningful to say. I agree with what The Rope said in his/her post...you definitely don't want to force it. I also think that one's writing flows better when one writes from feeling. A good example is how I published my first hub. I was talking with a friend on the phone about his concern for his job in a company hurt by the recession. I tried to give him advise, and after I hung up the phone, I thought about hubpages and quickly turned to my computer to write everything I just spoke about on the phone.
That was not forced. And it came from the heart while still fresh in my mind. So I think it helped make it flow. And it was something that could be helpful for anybody else in the same predicament.
When writing that way, we never know if we will end up writing one a day, one a week, or whatever...but at least the hubs written that way will have quality.
A lot of this depends on the motivation of the hubber. I'm here to make lots of money by selling things. So I created a sales plan and everyday I write at least 1 hub to sell something. Some would argue that marketing copy isn't creative - I would argue it takes an equal amount of thought to do it well.
But I can see that those hubbers here for creative writing face writers block and creativity issues, so they don't write as much.
There's also hubbers who have a lot of other committments, either off-line or online which make it hard to write frequently. Even though I work full-time online - I can't devote a full day to hubpages most days and keep up with all of my other sites.
So it does vary a lot. Then there's the folks who just want to play a bit and write a hub every now and then. And that's okay too. Everyone needs a hobby.
When I came to HubPages, I set out a goal of 40 Hubs to get myself started. I reached it in my first 30 days. and haven't written as much.
I did however, experience something new...I had to fulfill a request of PrettyDarkHorse. Her question "Why are you intelligent?", which was interesting. I guess I could have answered just the question, without making a Hub about it, but the motivation it gave me to write another Hub, was refreshing.
Just my thoughts. I'll be more than likely adding more, because I have 3 unpublished Hubs ready to go, but I'm not exactly finished, as pertaining to Hubs that are attached. So, when I do, I will get more out.
As often as we desire many of us also work on other wonderful projects. I commend those who write here every single day!

Is hubpages in danger of being over-run by writers from India who can't write proper English? I went to a hubpages question yesterday, and half the answers were from Indian hubbers who didn't understand the question but...
