I was wondering how long it takes you to write a hub. Perhaps an average time overall or for various types of hubs.
I read somewhere of a guy who wrote 10 hubs a day for 10 days! In my dreams. I take well over two hours per hub. Probably more if I added it all up.
Bad Company will take a lot longer than an hour with your next project wont it??????
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.
In the beginning - months ago - It used to take me 4 hours to write a Hub. My goodness! but now, approximately 2 hours. Less than an hour if its a Poem.
I have been writing commercially and can write a lot... But when it comes to writing a hub it has to be something from my heart and has to mean something I dont write a hub until I feel for it.
So max that I can do is one hub straight from the heart
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?
Same as you 2-3 hours.
I would question the quality of anybody who squeezes out 10 a day. The most I have ever managed in a day was 4 published, and 2 half done. That took me ALL day!
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..............
about 2 hours and longer ones with more research take a few days
a few hours minimum~~ depends on research involved~~ and how often I'm distracted
Like others it depends what I'm writing. I'm fighting with one right now that will probably take me hours and hours collectively.
If I write about a subject I know well, maybe an hour or two. If I write something straight from my mind i.e. froggy nonsense, frighteningly quick.
Although if I am drunk I can write it in the toilet and publish it in 45 mins, just like my Peggy Sue Hub
did that last one wrong
Please post it just for me please please please
I am posting it on Thursday night, twil be worth the wait I hope, jeeez I havent written anything in ages !
I have only managed to do two in one day and found it exhausting. I did one today and with research and keyword search took a good three hours if not longer but it is still not fully finished.
1 to 2 hours - 1 hour for the writing (and research) and another hour to put in everything including the pictures, links, tags, videos, etc. But if it's a ranting hub, 30 minutes to 1 hour tops!
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.
you are not going to believe this ha ha ha ha i am at my religious meeting,,,,,,, not back til 10 but i will tune in when i get back,,,,,,, can't miss it even for you sorry
Just for you I will post it at 1030pm uk time
thanks so uch it does mean a lot to me..... I know it will be brilliant, have you sourced some good pics yet...
It depends on what you write. Good hubs take about 3 hours
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.
Depends on what I am writing about. I try and publish a hub every other day the off day is for research and usually start writing the next day I finish up and publish.
I'm very slooooooow, lol. About 4-6 hours, but I am a perfectionist.
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...).
Tori, don't sweat over it, I am here for two years, and have just 17 hubs.
True but look at how many fans you have!
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?
That stuff works surprisingly well, but it messes with the internal voice.
Takes me from 45 minutes to two hours to complete a hub. Depends upon how intersted I get in the subject and how many
"Hey Mom come here!" I hear!
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...
Geez! I get too wordy and then have to spend extra time editing. I usually take 2-4 hours on short hubs.
On average about 3-4 hours from start to finish, including research. Rarely, a day if it is something I'm either unsure about, or too emotionally involved to release.
At least two hours.
The articles that I write which features products are easier to write because it's basically putting together facts and Amazon capsules.
Next articles to write longer is when I write about an idea I have and then just looking for some research.
My travel articles take longer because I have to think about what to write, the way to write it, select pictures, find research, etc.
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.
In general i do 3 to 4 hubs a day and it takes me all day to do them.. of course it also depends on topic and research but i try to average that
I really admire the hubbers whose first language is not English trying to write a hub in English. I wouldn't know how to write in another language.
It depends on what I'm writing about.
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.
When I get writer's block I consider doing a movie review or book review but I'm concerned they won't bring any traffic. Do you find that's the case at all?
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'm still new to it all too but it takes me a few hours to write one out and then post it but...if I can't write it takes a few days, weeks, and months lol
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.
Am new to this but about 2 hours, so -far
I also drift in to side stuff, and the sesson goes long.
I just wrote a hub. I wrote through an episode of Two and a Half Men and an episode of NCIS. So that's an hour and a half including commercials, IMs, annoying cats and snoring husband.
This does not say good things about me.
Some times it takes an hour and some times a week or even a month. All depend upon subject matter and mood.
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.
It takes me on average 3 hrs to research and write a hub.
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.
It used to take me 15 minutes. But now I look over things twice and it takes me 30 maybe an hour.
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.
1 hour to write, 1 hour to enhance with photos, 30 minutes to publish. so 2 hours and 30 minutes
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 taking a lot longer to complete, maybe because I haven't written much articles on...

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...

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 long enough?
