    What is  the reccomended rate of publishing hubs?

    Sometimes, publishing too quickly affects the quality of your work. We need the time to rehash, regroup and get over the writer's block that can hit quite hard at times. We must take note to publish regularly too. What are your views on how often we should publish?

    I think it really depends on the hubbers skill at writing quality hubs. Some of my favorite hubbers can write a great hub in 30-45 minutes. But that's just not me. I usually take 3-4 hours to write a hub. I'm more of a technical thinker, so writing does not come naturally to me.

    It takes me a lot more time to put my thoughts in to a well worded format. If I was writing technical documents I would be faster, but that's typically very dry to read.

    So I would say as long as the quality is there publish as often as you want to, whether that is a everyday, once a week, once a month..etc...

      I think it's not the writing so much that is so time consuming for me, it's the finding of engaging ideas to start and looking for photos! Agree that quality is the most important thing to look for. Thanks for sharing!

    I don't think that publishing too quickly, unless you're posting rough drafts, is really a problem, since it's easy enough to re-edit any hub you've already posted.

    Yes, the focus should be on quality first. For me, the writing process is not so cut and dried, however. I work best if I just write, even if I know what's coming out is garbage, at least I have something on the page to work with. I'm an iterative writer, in other words.

    Publishing at some rate may help you to keep the juices flowing, and help you meet personal goals, but I don't think it's going to have much effect on your hubbing success.

      Thanks, Casimiro, for coming by. I asked because I sometimes do feel very much under the pressure to publish every single day, but feel that doing so compromises quality! Thanks for sharing!

    It is different for different Hubbers. The main concern should not be time, it should be good quality, entertaining hubs. Like you mentioned, if you get in a hurry the quality can very well suffer. We do not want this to happen because that is the main thing hubpages looks for is good quality, enjoyable hubs.

      Wholeheartedly agree. Feel under the pressure to quickly publish but it does compromise quality and it's really not worth that. Thanks for coming by, JThomp!

    My understanding is that the recommendation is 3 a week but that's not realistic for most people. I agree with other answers that it's very individual and that your main focus should be quality. So take your time. I would add that you should try to establish a rhythm for yourself to keep you focused on producing regularly. It's hard to re-establish discipline once you lose it. I've been here for a little over two months with 23 hubs. I started out trying to put out 2 to 3 a week now I'm happy with one per week more or less. I think hitting 20 made me comfortable to focus on producing at a slower rate, learning more about "stellar secrets," and putting out at least one quality hub every one to 2 weeks. I gotta get to work now :-)

      janshares, rhythm is important indeed. We have to publish regularly. But too often indeed damages the quality of our work! Thanks for sharing!

    Everyone is different, and there's no set rate for publishing hubs. When you are happy and content with your hub, and you feel you are finished then publish it. The sooner you get your hub on line then the sooner people can read all of your hard work.

    I am a proponent of discovery. exploration, documenting, and then measuring. Reading over the many great answers I see their is a common thread running through - individuality. (by the way, love the pup avatar. A great signal for caring and warmth. Great advantage with attracting readers. I learned that from another hubber Rosemay50).

    Personally, I am on a five year plan of learning and earning here at hubpages. What I am doing 'is' unconventional and maybe not traditional. Yet, I am following a plan written around 1994.

    The objectives I seek may not have an emphasis on the longevity of a hub for success. I wrote a series of hubs with a specific purpose. That purpose was how many views did those hubs receive on the first day. That is it. The information I sought to learn was just that.

    Another is I wanted to know could I write a hub that would receive over 100 views in a singular day within the hub pages community without any SEO. How many comments did they receive. How critical were those comments. How long before a change occurred either positive or negative on the larger market measured with Google Analytics. And, would there be a residual return in the marketplace regarding trends. I really do not know if that is good, bad, or indifferent for hub views, yet the comparison is relational to the tsmog profile and relative to the successful here. And, then share those results somehow and someway.

    For instance. I am pretty sure I will write maybe 3 - 4 hubs this month based on the criteria regarding goals and objectives. This month I will be putting forth an effort of Feng Shu(ing) my portfolio - declutter, declutter, declutter. Next, I will be seeking the principles of reduce - reuse - recycle.

    So, I wandered a whole bunch midget38 to answer this question as a thought process. If it were a hub the answer may have been different. Audience comes to mind and whom the readership is relative to today. Thank you for this opportunity, of which you have presented. 

    Finally bearing in mind a portion of the background I have is in manufacturing. And, too, some is with Research & Development. What occurs at tsmog today, just may not be what occurs at a future legitimate venture at hubpages. Or, I am in the Research & Development phase now for the 'Master Plan.' Purpose for writing hubs bears much weight on the process of creating hubs and the hub portfolio. The rate for me is those long range goals, not short term. Flexibility.

      True, tsmog, thanks for the valuable insights. We indeed should be creating hubs with a purpose and consider long term goals instead of short term ones because that would mean just writing, to publish, without much meaning! Thanks so much!
