How much time do you spend to create a hub?
This is just a simple question to know. I just want to make sure whether I am slow compared to other hubberers or it just take much time to create.
All hubs up-to today's published hub, I need more than 3 hours. What about your time requirements? Will you please share?
The last one took me more than 3 days. I had to gather a lot of facts and scientifically-proven data for my hub. I hope it's worth the hassle
For mine, it all depends. If I'm going on one of my long, epic lists, it takes a few days to get all my thoughts in order. For something smaller like a movie review, I'm getting my thoughts in order while watching the movie and on the way home, so it only takes a little over an hour to make it all come together.
It depends. If it's a topic that I am familiar with it will be fast, let's say 1-2 hours but it can take me a day if I don't know a thing about the topic.
1 day to write it (3-6 hours depend on the topic) and about two days of fussing with it off and on as I reread it and see something that needs clarifying or trimming.
Part of that time includes creating graphics or poking around on creative ommons or Stock xchng or NASA to find images I'm legally able to use.
It takes me about 8 hours to research, write, and edit and about an hour to promote.
It depends. A day, 2 or 3 and the rest are editing, putting photos and everything to have a guality hub. Sometimes, a hub is ready for publication, but I published it after a week or until I´m ready.
Two to four hours is usually enough for me to gather data, pictures, videos, and write. There have been times I have gone over the four hour mark. Currently, I'm trying something new, especially since the "Exclusives" titles are no longer here in HP. Will create about four hubs on one day, gather all the pictures, videos, and keywords and phrases. This helps me gather my thoughts on these particular hubs for a couple of days before I start writing. I think it's proving well for me because my last set of four came easily when it was time to write. My writing time was also faster because I wasn't distracted by pulling all the data, pics, and videos.
I've spent about two hours then maybe another 15 minutes to spellcheck and double check things.
For me it depends on the topic (and my mood! ^^). Typically, 4 to 6 hours to write and do added research. Then I always leave it sit anywhere from another hour or two, to even a whole day later, so that I can go over it with refreshed eyes. I never publish a hub without mad amounts of editing because I'm so super-critical of myself.
It also takes me awhile to figure out how I want the set-up and features to look. Presentation (visuals) tends to get noticed better than the actual words. Plus there's the self-induced frustration of being so dang picky. For instance, it took me twenty minutes just to be satisfied with this comment before hitting 'submit'. XD

I'm new to Hubpages, as I joined about two weeks ago.I've been looking around and there are many quite prolific hubbers.I know that quality is what matters, but out of curiosity, how long do you spend writing each hub? Including any research, writing, editing.

When looking for information on a hub topic it is good to make sure that the information is accurate and that you have done your homework because there is nothing worse than reading an article that has false information. This takes the reader away from your site as they feel that it is fictitious...

I was just wondering how long a hub takes you to write from concept to published? I am using hubpages as the start of my freelance writing career and I am working being more productive. I am also only doing my second hub now. I have an editor now so that will add time to the process still...
