How much time do you average researching your topic for HubPages?
I find that I spend at least 3 to 4 hours reading and researching a topic before I even start to write my hub. Maybe that's why I average one hub a week. Do you have any hints or tips for speeding up the process?
Sorry TToombs08, I can't help you. I just thought I'd let you know you are far from alone. Misery loves company, as they say.
An hour. I go to different websites, possibly look it up in a book if I have one on the subject. I don't create an outline. I just write as I research.
I spend most of my research time matching up photos to go with content. I have had a few hubs that require some facts from research to support my writing. But, can't say exactly how much time on average it takes. You are right, maybe that is why it takes me so long to publish one hub.
I try to find the perfect picture to go along with my writing and sometimes it seems to take forever. And then, there is that slight character flaw - I get distracted by some cool picture and I have to stop and check it. Down the rabbit hole I go.
write based on your gut feeling! but nothing wrong if you want to write professional and well researched hubs!
It depends on the topic, if I previously know anything about it and how long of a hub I am writing. How I write varies on the day, most times I am with Iburmaster, I write as I research my topic. Other days I'll write down bullet points for my topic as I find them, and then go back flesh out the bullet points and add additional information. I'll read different articles on several websites and often watch youtube videos about my topic if they are available. It takes me 4-6 hours to research, write, gather photos and post a hub. Tips for speeding up the process, scan through rather than completely read articles for your topic. Decide what points you want to write about first and find an article that covers each point, so you can quickly gather the information you need to write your hub.
It varies. Sometimes a hub will be fully formed in my head. I just have to write it down. Other times it can take weeks to gather the facts that I require, to support the hubs ideas. I wrote a hub on the inequality of women's pay and it took me almost 2 months to find the information that I needed.
I have to agree with Molometer...it depends on the hub. I've written hubs that I've spent five or more hours researching and other's I didn't have to research at all. It's not a matter of quality, but subject matter. Like book reviews, I don't research them but I do read the book, does that count?

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...

I'm very disappointed in HubPages. Yes, I know ... I know ... we cannot opt out of their HubPro Basic program. And it's their site. Yadda, yadda, yadda--I get it. But that doesn't mean I'm not very upset. Make that pissed. I received one of those heads up emails, warning me that an unnamed hub of...

I have 20 bullet points. Because I like my readers to have reader-friendly material, I like to put this in two or three different text capsules.However the hp numbering system doesn't give the option of carrying on where the last number left off. So I have several choices.1. Have two or three sets...
