Yeah I have already spent that on it, thats why I will wait until Thursday. I am my own worse critic, if I don't like it I won't post it. It was like my Keyfinder Hub, I hate that hub and was all for deleting it but it got a good few clicks but I still hate it.
Takes about fifteen minutes. Usually because I know what I want to say when I start. Once I start it flows fairly quickly. having said that, I don't post that often so maybe you write more often but more slowly each time?
last night i wrote a poem, it was an effort to try to pull myself away from the computer, took 2 minutes, but then longer to advertise the books..... I promised myself i would switch the computer of once the hub was done...
I am soooooo lazy and have lots of good ideas in my head but just stick to messing around in forums and writing little ditty's that is why i will never be rich or famous, but i am happy..............
Depends on the amount of personal interest I have in the topic. I tend to start witno personal interesth something personal, a memory or tenuous connection, and then let whatever flows flow from there.
If I'm fully engaged in the topic I can write 500 words in an hour and then another hour to add video and news feeds.
If I have no personal interest then it can take me days to even get started, then a couple of hours for research and another hour to pull it all together.
I often go back to the hub a week or so later and edit / re write it, or add another paragraph or two when I can see it in a more detached way.That takes me another hour or so.
I've only published two hubs but the first one only took a few minutes as I was typing from memory. The second one took me like three hours. I had a little more into the second one though and I'm learning a lot as I go.
I'm in your camp. Most of my stuff is education I've been providing to clients verbally for 6 years or more. A lot of it I already had in some form as a 1-2 page patient handout. A few were 4-6 page handouts. It's all stuff I'm passionate about and I want it to be right. A lot of it is fairly complex stuff that I try to make simple and logical. So I'd say 3-6 hours.
Uh, like an eternity. I've always was obsessive over revision, and I didn't even want to publish the mere 2 hubs I have because of it!
I mean, some folks are here for 6 days and have 20 hubs, but me still 2...xD I just prefer quality over quantity and need to be inspired (But, for all I know those people just are more prolific then me and still write great hubs...).
I was told the Dragon naturally speak software is a great tool which help with content and research and this significantly cuts down the time taken. Maybe this explains those 10 hub per day hubbers. I'm suprised no one has raised this?
I'm really wondering whether I should get that software although I'm no serious writer. Just wanna cut down on time. Pushing affiliate products definitely earn a lot more than writing for adsense pennies.
As I see the majority of hubbers need 2-3 hours to write a hub, but for me it takes a bit longer as English is not my native language: I think in Russian, than translate my thoughts into English and if I don't know a word I have to look it up in the dictionary, so in general it takes me 4-5 hours...
Hi, I'm a newbie too and I don't think it matters how long it takes. It all depends on what you are writing about and how much you would like to share. The most important thing I think is that you write about something you truly love or enjoy. These make the best reading and are popular. So if it takes 1 hour or 1 day it does not matter as long as you do a good job. You want to make it interesting so you can attract fans. I don't have that many fans yet but I have a few and they are very nice. So just keep writing and be happy. And if you get a chance check out my hubs.
Usually I have about 10 hubs drafted and working on at any one time. I don't often pursue a hub from start to finish in one sitting. I have, but not often. And when I do it usually results in something under 500 words. Otherwise I've got on simmer 700+ word hubs that are getting ingredients thrown in here and there.
I have no strict way of doing things. It's random, unpredictable and hectic.
Well I'm still new to writing hubs but it depends on the topic. If I'm doing a review I can spit one out in about an hour after I watch the movie. If I have to take research then 2-3 days. And if it's creative writing.... forever.
Well, at this point I'm not in a traffic. I haven't gotten a lot in the last few weeks. 200+ total page views since I started. As I'm still in the finding my niche mode the reviews do well enough for me. The score ranges from 60 to 75 but I don't know if that's good or not.
I think mine average around 2 hours (maybe an hour and a half or three-quarters of writing, and then whatever's left putting whatever stuff there's going to be). I always plan to go back and add stuff, but I never do.
It usually take me 3 hours to write a quality hub. I do not do key word research but only concentrate to write it. Adsense is my secondary goal and not at all primary because it is less than 1% of my business income. Thanks, Jyoti Kothari
Often I can write the main content for the hub in a half hour to an hour, depending on how long the hub is going to be. But putting the hub together after that will still wind up taking me at least another hour because I'm usually looking for just the right Amazon listings to add, or the right youtube video, or looking for photos, etc. Then I futz around forever with the lay-out. Then I check keywords and such for tags, etc.
But like Darkside, I usually have several hubs I'm working on at once. So often I will grab the url and post my text. Then leave it unpublished until I can come back to it and add the rest of the ingredients.
To be honest I'm new to hubs and it takes me ages sometimes, like up to 4 hours sometimes. I've done two in a day and needed to take a nap lol! well not really but it was tiring...VERY! I've spent all day on my last hub, I'm hoping it will take less time the more I'm hubbing.
If data and all necessary information are already available, it will take me about an hour to complete a hub or write an article. For those requiring research, about 3 days...spending like 2 hours per day.
I tend to write my hubs ahead of time than when I first started and cut time in half. Like David, it's about a hour, give or take, when I copy/paste it onto hub, and add photos, ad capsules, and publish within 30 minutes.
How much time do you normally require to write a hub on the average? I am asking this because I can easily write a hub within 30-40 minutes time and sometimes a hub will take a couple of hours or so. BUT food hubs are...
How long does it take you to write a hub?I am a new-ish Hubber. I take about 3-4 hours to write a hub - from idea formulation, research, writing, editing - from start to finish. Is that too long? Not...
