    What's best: Long Hubs or sectioned hubs?

    Do you think it's best to divide a long hub into 3 or 4 parts that can be published at intervals, or is it better to just cram it all into one BIG hub?

    I think Hubs can definitely be too long so I'd have to vote sectioned off ones. My patience grows thin if they wear on like a newspaper article does for me.

    I personally prefer shorter hubs than one huge long hub. I think they are easier to read and honestly I tend to start skimming about halfway through a long one unless it is extremely interesting.

    The challenge in creating sectioned hubs is to create an engaging hub that will make readers want more.   Moreover, it is important that each hub can stand alone.

    There is something my speech teacher once said about speeches that can apply to hubs.  make your hub like a womans' skirt.  Long enough to cover everything but short enough to keep someone's interest.

    It's ok to section a hub.  I've done it and so have others.

      I love your comment Daffy Duck. I also love short hubs.

    Long hubs are too boring to read. Sectioned hubs are the best because they're easier to follow and understand

    Looks like the consensus is shorter!  Thanks everyone, this helps a lot!  And Daffy Duck, great analogy, haha!
