I am not quite sure whether preparing a perfect first hub better or just sharing information and exploring what works. I have been preparing my first hub on meditation for quite a long time now but never get really satisfied that it is 'the' hub which covers everything about the topic.Should I just publish it and then add matter as an edit, after I publish ?
Don't worry about "covering everything about the topic". This hub may be an overview of the topic, while you can later write more articles that zero in on specifics of the topic. Then you can link the first hub to those.
Every hub should have "excellent content" . . . as excellent as you are able to produce, but don't confuse excellent with quantity. You don't have to include every piece of information there is on a subject, and or not every piece of information in detail.
Well, you want to make the best hubs you can, regardless of which one it is. If it's going to be good the eventually you might as well save yourself future trouble and make it as good as you can.
Like someone mentioned above, you don't have to cover "everything" in one hub. If this is going to be your niche, you can write many hubs on the subject. I would suggest making your first hub "evergreen." There's a tool to help you when you are writing a hub, and it's in the top right-hand corner showing you the number of words in your hubs, pictures used, videos, quizzes, etc. Make sure you:
(1) write at least 750 words (HP automates this for you)
(2) get three (3) good pictures (must be creative commons)
(3) add two (2) capsules that include either videos, quizzes, polls, or tables
I believe you have to have five good hubs in order for them to be featured now with HP.

We may not all be doctors and nurses, but that doesn’t mean we’ll never find ourselves in a position in which we need to help someone who is sick or injured. Why not prepare for the unexpected by doing some first aid research and sharing your tips on what to do in various scenarios?If you’re...

I am doing a 20 "such and such" quotes about "such and such" hub. I even went back in after they marked it duplicate and made sure 400 of the words are my words, even though I know people googling it aren't going to want to read my words and are instead just going to be coming...

Authors should be free to write about alternative medical treatments that they personally found useful for a minor ailment, but claiming a recipe cures all forms of stage 4 cancer, or any other serious terminal illness, is unethical. Especially if the hub is plugging a book with the same unsound...

We all want hubpages to be full of hubs that are informative, containing facts, well-researched observations, or personal insights in various areas. Yet some of the most popular hubs are, frankly, JUNK, IMHO. Here's one, again, IMHO:http://hubpages.com/hub/iPhone-5-ReviewSince iPhone 5 doesn't...
