I use to always send hubs out straight out as they are written, after editing. But now, I'm getting more into the stye or writing 1-2 a day leaving them a day, editing them and send them out on Fridays.In Dutch Vrijdag means "Friday" so I thought it was sensible.
What do you do after writing a hub, before publishing it?
My method is always to write the full Hub up in Word, then read it through aloud a couple of times. If it sounds right, it is right. Then the spell check. Next, I save a copy in my Hubpages Folder (that is simply the essay) This is done to ensure that if anything happens to my Hubpage I still have the original text saved.
I then send a copy of the Hub down to My Docs and cut- and-paste each paragraph into its appropriate paragraph box.
Next comes the pictures. These I download and place. Finally comes the paragraph header lines and the detail I might write in below or above the pictures. I don't worry much about keywords nowadays. Getting a bit too complex and I don't get any money from Hubs anyway.
A final view to see what it all looks like and, if okay. I post.
I usually write and post a Hub straight away or, at most, the next day.
I usually post them straight out, but it varies depending on the circumstance. If I start one and it does not get posted immediately due to something that interrupted the process, it may sit for several days. Other times I have taken a week to gradually put a hub together due to my work schedule. It will sit during those times as well.
