Generally it takes me three to four days to finish a hub if you consider thinking time and research etc. The actual writing takes about three to four hours with another day or two for rewrites and editing. However, I have not written a hub in a long time since nothing has struck my fancy.
I have been writing crochet patterns for my hubs. Once I get a design idea, I usually take a day or two to not only make the project, but also to type it all out (including notes) as a hub.
That depends on the topic that I am covering. If it's a topic that I can rattle of from own head then probably a one hour to a few hours. On the other hand if its something that requires me to do some research then it could take more than a few hours to a day or so.
What I found with trail and error is that the more research I do and the time I take to do my hubs the better the traffic results and earnings once its published.
In general, too long! Probably a bit of a perfectionist, I am slightly anal when it comes to writing hubs. I wish I wasn't and would love to have the ability to write quality stuff at a decent rate! We should all be aiming to write to the best of our abilities, what's the point otherwise? Hopefully putting a lot of effort will make it worthwhile in the end, and just imagine the fun whilst trying to do so! Happy hubbing
It takes me approximately three hours to write and edit my hub. I write nothing technical. My hubs are all about my life experience and how I got out of it and so contains just inspirational ideas.
Some Hubbers say they write a Hub in an hour! I can't understand that. Unless they are writing a short poem or a recipe, I can do that. If I want to write a Hub that I think will make me a few pennies, I will spend maybe two or three days before I hit that publish button. It takes time to research, write, find a video I like, the summary, photos, etc. It's a struggle for me .
I can write a short Hub off the top of my head in less than an hour, but some of my longer ones can take days. I wrote one about a heavy metal singer that actually did take me four days to finish.

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. I mean the whole process, research, writing etc. What would you say is the average for you?

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...

Hi Hubbers,I am curious as to how long you would spend from start to finish on any particular hub, do you set yourself an amount of time to spend on it? Would you spend longer than one day on one hub?tlcs is curious!

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?
