Do you save your articles and then publish them, or publish them as soon as you finish writing them?
Personally I just upload my content immediately after finishing writing about it and doing a quick edit once or twice. Does anyone write articles and then hold on to them until a later date?
Usually I make first a points, then rough draft and then final draft, this takes some time week some time two days before I upload them.
As soon as I have proof read my article I will publish it. After it is up and running I may go back several times and fine tune it. I can't imagine how confusing it would be to publish multiple stories at the same time, plus I don't see any benefit in it. I guess it all comes down to what works best for the writer.
I have and published both in the same day. I didn't think it was possible. Writing takes effort. But, I have learned that to write better you must read more. I read more hubs than I write!
I usually write them and publish them. In hubs where I need additional research, I save them, edit the hub and publish. Then I start hubs with titles that I intend to write on and save them so that I don't forget that there are hubs that I want to write.
I usually let them sit at least overnight before my final proofing. Sometimes it's easier to find errors if you get a little distance from it first.
I write most of my Hubs over a period of time, saving the unfinished work on my computer. Adding to them, reworking what I wrote, proofreading, researching and adding additional information. Sometimes even removing sections that I feel are not contributing to the understanding of the article.
Then when I feel it's ready, I upload the text into individual text capsules, add images where appropriate, and play around with the formatting to make it easy on the eye, so to speak.
I think what you were asking, though, is if we upload and save on HubPages before publishing. I used to upload and publish in one session. But lately, when I'm finished as I explained above, I upload and still leave it sit before publishing. That way I give it one last go-over before I pull the trigger.
It turns out that every time I proofread I end up modifying something. So I'm never in a rush to just write and publish.
I publish as soon as I finish writing and editing the article. There are times after publishing that I make additional edits.

if I publish before I have Affiliate approval am I decreasing the hubs monetary potential?
