Do you usually keep editing your hubs or just set it and forget it?
I find myself constantly shifting things around and rewording sentences I think I could have said better. Is this normal?
I frequently come back and edit my hubs multiple times. Sometimes not for months, but at some point they all get edited.
I never bother to keep editing my hubs. I usually read over it a few times just to make sure it all makes sense then publish it. After that I'll move on to writing other hubs even though I know some of mine could be updated but knowing me I'd end up basically rewriting the entire thing!
I constantly edit my work. I get surprised by errors that somehow only show up every time I go through the hubs.
I many times fiddle around with keywords and a sudden spike in Google reminds me that it is a good habit. A little change or addition of info is good at least from my experience.
I publish then let it sit for a day or so. By the time I publish it, I have gone over it so many times, I tend not to see the simple errors, a missing letter in a word or a small typo. So I go back in a day or so with fresh eyes and run through it. Then I do the suggestions for links.
I do check my account daily to be sure no links have become broken or any other problems that might come up. But the hub itself generally does not change.
Sure it is normal, I think we all want to do a great job and have a fear that someone won't like our writing--and say so.
One of the ways I come to a final decision on leaving a hub alone is to read it out loud. It is so much easier to catch awkward syntax or wording when I am hearing it as well as reading it.
Every once in a while I will go back and update or add more information to an old hub. I also occasionally find errors in my work so I have to take the time to edit it.
Occasionally to sometimes. I edit my Hubs so that the content is always fresh and appealing to the reader. Evergreen Hubs need sporadic editing because they are always readable for at least 5 years and span all four seasons. Ditto for seasonal ones.
I do exactly the same thing. I think the advice duffsmom is good. I just published my first hub but I didn't wait a day. I think sometimes you can drive yourself crazy rewording and shifting things.
An author's work is never done. There are always things that can be tweaked and improved!
I continuously go back and edit my hubs.

Do you publish in the morning, afternoon, evening, night or anytime ? Does publishing a hub at a specific time have any effect on the traffic or no difference at all?

Sometimes (or let's say, often), when I see a spelling error in an otherwise perfect hub, I feel inclined, with the best of intentions, to write to the author and point out the glitch, but don't do so out of fear of...
