As one matures with writing Hubs does time for writing a hub increase?

    For instance when I first joined a big trend or phase was the 30Hub / 30 Day challenge, now not practical any longer. Although never completing that challenge I attempted several times acquiring many hubs, of which have deleted many. What I noticed is time to write a hub has grown from a day towards a week for research, writing, editing, and Hub Design. Any similar experiences or input?

      when i first join the 30 days challenge it was fun until i couldn't catch up , it was frustrating. Better to write 1 hub per month, a quality one than garbage hub

      I've always been a very "slow" writer... I'll pick a general idea and write it out in outline form, then try to organize the ideas. The comes the process of making meaningful "sections;" choosing a handful of highly relevant "supporting products" I am personally familiar with, researching supporting documentation/links; choosing what other Hubs I might link to "in-line," then choosing and formatting photos.... then I let the whole thing sit and "stew," sometimes for days, sometimes for months... then come back and fine tune it before publishing.

      Just considering work time, the average hub probably takes me about 3-7 days... and I seldom have time to write all the time.

      I never got into the 30-day challenges as I have never been able to churn out material at that rate.

      I think maybe one matures as a writer, but I also think Hubpages grading scale makes one do more work to get a higher score.

    I came back to hubpages after a long gap, only to find that many of my hubs are not featured now. When I look at them, I feel I can make a lot of changes to make them more appealing. So I have decided to go slow.

    Recently I am becoming very slow in writing. Either I don't find any topic or any mood. Add to that a hub getting unfeatured. It is very discouraging factor. My energy gets absorbed in editing or rewriting it. So, going slow is a better thing to produce quality work. Concentrate on one thing at a time and make it better or best product.

    I worked on several 30-day challenges (back when I was on Squidoo). The advantage is you build up your skills in assembling a hub and can try out a variety of topics. Then after a little time, I could see which ones were getting traffic and tailor my future pages based on that.
    Yes, some turned out to be duds and I've removed some of those or improved them or repurposed the content elsewhere for my blogs.

    A few months after joining HP, I accepted a challenge wherein everyone was to write and publish a complete hub in 30 minutes.  I did so, although it contained no photos.

    Now, it takes at least 8 hours to write a decent hub, not including any research (if the information isn't from me personally, I probably won't be writing on the topic).  So yes, it takes much longer now than it did 4 years ago.  Part of this is due to the inclusion of photos, videos, polls, etc., part from title research, but a lot of it is simply more care in grammar, spelling and particularly hub layout.
