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?
Well it depend on what are you writing a good hub does take 3 to 6 hours depending on topic but if someone is running in a race and hoping to get as many numbers on his profile 15 minutes is more than enough.
Quality should be top notch, time don't hurt if you are getting desired results.
I take about 30 minutes, then another hour potentially editing, building, and putting the page together.
My pages tend to be articles that are trains of thought. For me, I need to do the process from start to finish. If I pause, walk away or just run out of steam then the article rarely gets finished.
But I don't churn these out at the rate of several a day. They are an idea that comes, and then is gone. Two or three a week at most.
But of course the time spent will vary enormously according to the writer and the subject.
It depends on the topic I'm writing about and how much research I need to do on it but usually it takes me four to six hours. I tend to do a lot of proofreading afterwards so that also adds to the time a bit. I've also found that after writing one, when I let it sit for a day or two then come back and look at it again, there's always some new or better idea I have to make the hub much more interesting for readers. Everyone's different so as long as you're producing quality work then there is no "too long " or "not long enough" when it comes to the amount of time it takes for you to write one.
It takes me forever...at least 6 hours, usually more to get it right..it's ok though. It took me an entire day and night the first few. I'm used to myself and I always take ages at writing. Just love it and can NOT rush it.
I would agree with some of the other posts that it can take about 4 to 6 hours to put together a quality hub especially if it it is research based. Even if it is off the cuff it still takes time to edit, research your kewords, read, edit, edit read, read edit. check facts,add links an so on.
It depends on how long the topic is and how much you need to research. It can take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours.
The writing itself comes quickly, because I believe I've always had a facility with words (two English teacher parents, you know), and I'll always bless the day I decided to take typewriting class in 8th grade. However, the thing that takes FOREVER is choosing the appropriate image to help tell whatever story I'm telling in my words. Maybe I'm too much of a stickler in that way, but I can't help it, and perhaps don't ever want to stop!
It took about more than one hour for writing, and about half an hour for editing and publishing the hub.
It takes me anywhere from 1 - 4+ hours, depending on the topic, the amount of research needed, etc. But, I think the more important thing is that there is no right answer. What works for me may not work for you. And, if you want to get better keep writing. The more you write, the easier it flows.
I usually take my time and write a hub over the course of several days. I find it's better that way for editing, finding mistakes, and finding good related hubs/links. It takes me anywhere between 3 to 8 hours per hub.
That sounds reasonable. It depends on what I am writing about and how well I know the topic. Or it might be notes I have already taken down in a notebook. Writing a hub about it takes considerably less time.

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...

When looking for information on a hub topic it is good to make sure that the information is accurate and that you have done your homework because there is nothing worse than reading an article that has false information. This takes the reader away from your site as they feel that it is fictitious...

Hey. 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. Thanks,Juliet

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?

A form of this question came up in a recent thread. I responded that I can and have written more than 10 hubs or articles in one day. I just finished a hub, and it took me 19 minutes to write it. It's 800 words long. Many of the articles I write for publishers are only 500 words long. So, you see,...
