    I prefer my Hubs to have a minimum of 500 to 600 words.

    I like my hubs to be a minimum of 450 words as recommended by several other people (hubbers) here.  Google likes hubs to be longer -- the longer the better I'm told. 

    My hubs tend to be a thousand words or more.   I attribute that to my English writing classes at the university where my classmates and I were expected to write 8-page essays on poems of a single line!  Yes, I was taught to be prolific in my writing.  While there may be some advantage in that, I really admire people who can say more with less.  People who can be concise and say all that needs saying with just a few words.

    I'm in the same boat as you Au fait.  I'm pretty long winded and always feel the need to be descriptive in my hubs.

    One of my high school teachers always said a paper should be the same length as a woman's skirt: long enough to cover everything but short enough to keep it interesting. I believe the same thing goes for hubs.

    I prefer to have 700+ words in a Hub, but my Hubs ranges between 250 to 1200 words.

    I like my hubs to be at least 250, 300 words.  That's if I don't have a lot to say. I have been writing over that a lot lately, though.
