How long do you take on average to write a hub?
From the point where you begin picking a topic until you click publish, how long do you spend on a hub?
It take me 2 -3 hours to write the hub but months to come up with it!
I don't think I can even measure this. I have ideas constantly - form someone asking me a question at work, my kids, family, tv, movies, etc. I have more ideas than time to write.
From the time I actually sit down to write on one of my ideas to publish it all depends on the subject. Poetry can take a few minutes to a couple hours. Depending on emotion or if there is a specific subject.
Articles may take an hour or several days depending on research needed and editing needed.
On average probably 3 hours for me though.
It's hard to say. Sometimes it takes me a few hours but if I'm writing something that requires a lot of research, it could take me a few days...
Once I have a topic in mind, it takes me about 1 to 2 hours from writing it to publishing it. This includes selecting images and proofreading.
Depends. I do some research and then publish, the whole process is about 3-4 hours
Depends upon the topic. Some topics need a lot of research while you can write some without researching like hubs on your personal experiences.
Similarly, you can't cover some topics anywhere less than a thousand words while others need just 300-400 words.
I need anywhere from 40 minutes to a whole day to complete a hub.
Takes me a few hours.I personally find the topic I think people are most interested in. I then outline the steps I wanted to take while writing on this topic. I wouldn't think of the conclusion in the middle of the body paragraph for example.I would just focus on completing that body until it's finished.It's similar to writing essays in college.
I usually take from 1 to 4 hours to write depending on the topic and how much research. However, I usually don't publish until the following day. This gives me time to take a break from the article and then I come back and proof read it. I make some final adjustments and then I publish.
The ones that I write in a few hours are either things that I've already been thinking about for days, or they aren't very good.
I'm of the opinion that for myself, hubs turn out far better if I sit on them, and work on them for two or three days. Even then I find a dozen mistakes to be fixed. There's no time limit, so why not think it over really well?
It varies. I sometimes write them in a few hours and sometimes it takes days, even weeks. I usually have 4-5 ideas for hubs at any one time. Food recipes can be written quickly. Short stories take longer. Some poems I have been working on for years. If possible, it is a good idea to let them rest at least overnight before publishing them.
I usually start a hub by jotting down a few ideas, creating headings, and perhaps uploading a few key images. This takes about 20 minutes. I have five or six topics at this stage right now.
Then I let things percolate for a few days or up to a week before coming back to the topic. I usually work out the details while I'm out running. Then, I sit down and write the hub in about 2 - 3 hours.
I've only written one hub, but I have been writing hub-legnth articles for a while now. I normally take 3-6 hours writing an article, with research. But before I write, I will get an idea and think on it for a day or so (or longer) before I'll touch it, and after I've written something, I like to leave it a day at least before I edit and publish.
I have to be working on 5-6 articles at a time, or else I'd only write one or two things a week!
Usually a 3-4 hours. I have a hard time focusing on one task so I finish one paragraph at a time and then take a short break before continuing.
An hour to all night depending on the topic. I often will write one hub in 9 hours but it's 15k words long, I then break it into a "series" seperating points into seperate hubs. In this the whole next day it takes to build those 10-15 hubs is well spent boils down to 2 hours average per hub and a raised hub score (and earnings).
I also generally find new ideas to write other hubs about in the above process. I write hubs spontaneousely when something cool I want to share hits me or I see/read about it. Since the topic is so fun, the actual writing takes me an hour or two (15k words) but the actual building and formatting takes the longest.
I'm a hubfectionist and use often eccentric formatting in my hubs to make them unique- using photoshop to make headers etc...
Picking a topic is hard. But when you finally have one, the flow will be continous.
Researching about trending topics is another factor that might affect how long a hub will be published. It takes me about 3 hours to get a topic then publish.
Depends on the topic, sometimes I find that writing something that ignites your passion can be really long because you tend to write longer. Motivation and research style plays a role here.
I like the question. Reading the other answers I realize I'm not as slow as I thought.
It can take me two days from starting to write a hub until I publish. I would say it can take 4 - 6 hours of actual sit down work. When the children and hubby are home and I don't get time to sit and write, I'll jot things down and think it through. I read over my hubs a lot and change them and will only press the publish button when my head is buzzing and the sweat is dripping from my brow. At that point I know I've down my best.
Usually, it will take me around two hours to completely bring it to the best quality I possibly can without my head exploding. At least 45 minutes of thinking and writing the first draft, then the rest editing and asking my colleagues opinions, editing and reviewing, editing and reviewing, and finally posting. But I am usually a perfectionist when it comes to writing my own stuff, and I want to make sure that my point is well-written and understood. I know people who can do that much faster than me, and with better results, too.
This question depends on your personal capacity as a person, are you the one that can get things done, in a jiffy and pretty accurate? or are you the one that takes your time to get it done in other not to make mistakes?, study yourself very well and go at your own pace. Thanks.
I find it interesting that most people take longer than me to write a hub. I usually average an hour or so, and don't proofread much. My hubs are usually about things I'm interested in though, so the words usually come easily. Any proofreading tends to get done in-line, while I'm writing. I'm sure it would help to spend more time proofreading, but then again, my teachers have never noticed...
Depends on what you want to write about. Ideas are easy and pop into my head all the time. But when I actually sit down to write... Maybe 30min to a couple hours.
it depends on what you want to write and how informed you're about it. some of the may take long but other will go straight forward and take short time. About 5 to 10 minutes even up to 30
but long one will take hr up to days
It often takes me several days, sometimes weeks, to write a hub. For the most part, I use my own photos, and that takes time. But always, I offer what I know, supplemented with whatever research is out there to substantiate or challenge my knowledge. I don't put hubs out there only to cash in on a trend.
It takes around 4- 6 hours to write and research, then I let it sit for a day or two, go back and re-write.
It usually takes me 1-2 hours from start to finish. I usually get a basic draft done in an hour. Let it sit for the a day and then come back and polish it off and add appropriate links.
