What is the average amount of time it takes you to write a hub?
It depends on the nature of the Hub, since I write a variety of types: Western short stories (which often take the longest), political pieces (the shortest), How To tutorials (variable), and more.
Generally speaking however: Two to six hours would cover all but the odd anomaly here and there.
Since I write mostly about nature therapies, it takes me 3 to 5 hours to write a hub complete with all the capsules. This is seperate from the time taken for research which may take from a few hours to half a day.
For me, it is at least one hour, and many times it takes 30 to 60 minutes to rewrite it.
It depends upon the type and length of your hub but an average hub takes about 45 minutes to write.....
Interesting questions. Usually around 2 hours. My weakness is attention to detail so I'm always having to re-read them to find typos...
Some hubs have taken me days to write while other hubs such as recipe hubs only take me about 20 -30 minutes to complete.
It usually takes me about an hour to write a hub, but another hour formatting it to look good, adding links, adding photos, adding Amazon ads, etc. Then I probably spend about 30 minutes to another hour promoting the hub in some way.
Because I try to focus on 'evergreen' topics I do a lot of research for both content and photographs, so it can take me as much as 3-4 weeks some times. However, if I write a hub - that I call a rant hub - then I can usually get the first draft done within a day or so. I leave it at least 24 hours and then go back and proofread.
As all have stated, it varies, however, I have a goal to start using a format and outline so the writing content takes less time. Once I do this, I hope the average can be reduced to an hour (minus research for those that need more facts, info, etc)
In my case, writing a hub takes a couple of hours, but research takes longer. This depends on the topic, of course.
I tend not to write a hub in one sitting. I start it one day, and over the next day or two, I add things, and edit, etc. so it is really hard for me to say.
It takes time to add the photos, the capsules, etc., and edit it.
Plus, even after I publish, I tend to go back and think of things to add.
I find that I am getting faster with practice - I make decisions faster, and generally know what look I prefer on a hub.
I would guess two to four hours as well. I had read some other hubbers take twenty minutes, and thought I was way slow, but from reading the answers here, I guess I am about average.
It would depends. Between 30 - 50 minutes on average. Sometime I would purposely keep it for sometime before publishing if I would need to add additional information etc.
Generally it takes an hour to complete a hub but sometimes it takes a day too. It depends on the subject and the availablity of information on the topic.
