How many hours daily did you spend on the Apprenticeship program?
I'm in September's group so we are only on day six. So far as I'm planning to do a hub (quality, of course) a day during the programme and a little more I'm spending 5-8 hours per day.
Can I maintain this pace? I don't honestly know but we'll see. So far I'm delighted to be part of the AP and think it's brill.
Feel free to ask me in 181 days if I still feel the same way.
It is different for everyone so it is hard to say. My group was the second one and we are in our final month.
I commute to work on a train so I spend that 1 1/2 hour a day on my laptop writing and some extra time at lunch as well. Most of my time spent is Monday - Friday so I would say a couple of hours a day, during the week, would be a good estimate for me.
It really depends on how much time it takes you to write your Hubs and to read your teammates Hubs and give them feedback. I've spent an almost embarrassing amount of time on HP in the last four months, so I'm here virtually all of the time anyway.
For a variety of personal reasons, I spend full time (8 hours or so, though I don't track it closely) a day, about 12 days out of the month, to learn the material and deliver the required 8 hubs. I produce, on average, one to two hubs per day of work. I could do it in less time and still meet the requirements of the Apprenticeship program - that rate is for top-quality hubs that I hope will drive traffic, using everything I know.
Coming into Month 4, I'm planning to add 1-2 hours per day on social media. This is not required to remain in the program. But it is my initial guess as to what I personally need to do to meet my traffic and income goals over the next several months.

By a top-quality Hub, I mean one that is more than 1,000 words, contains original or carefully chosen photos from other sources, gets a Hubscore at least into the 80s if not the 90s and is Featured. It may or may not be an Editor's Choice. By hours, I mean research, writing, editing and promoting.

Did anybody hate the apprenticeship program?One third of the first class dropped out. I understand that it was mostly because of the rigors of the program and personal time constraints. However, I've seen nothing but praise so far. I'd like to hear from someone who didn't like the program. Maybe if...
