I've found the Hubtool to be inspiring, and I've written all my hubs in them. Does anyone else write them in some other program and translate them in? If so, what program? Would you recommend it?
I compose all of my drafts for Hubs, blog posts, and anything else I intend to publish, using Microsoft Word where I can check my spelling, grammar, word count, etc.. and keep it saved offline on my computer. At times I have also used free programs such as OpenOffice and AbiWord. Any of those 3 are great programs to draft your writing.
I just randomly log into Hubpages and click "start a hub" and off I go ..... I don't even do any keyword research first.... and then I write directly into the hub modules and click Publish.
Then I make a coffee and stare out of the window for an hour ..... before checking my traffic.
Not a good system ... I'd not recommend this.... but it's stress-free.
Actually ... I've no idea what the Hubtool is, so just had to search and find out. .... oh all that stuff on the right. I'm aware of it, but I think focussing on it (for me) would build stress and, long-term, hold me back.
I do all of my writing in Microsoft Word then edit any photos related to the hub in Corel Paintshop Pro. When I begin to upload the hub I am going to publish, I adjust the flow by how it looks in the Start a hub section.

What happened to my little blue tip box I have become so attached to? I let me know how many words I had, if an image was not clear enough, and let me know when my hub was presentable and ready to publish.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping the original title intact), will it appear in the hub activity? Also, will...

What is the minimum word count you prefer to publish a Hub?

I was thinking of splitting an article into 2 or even 3 different hubs because it was too long. How many words should our articles have before we can publish them on HubPages? I checked the HubPages FAQ page but the only word count listed there refers to the total number of words that an article...
