    When I am working on a new hub, almost everytime I click the publish button (even though I've looked at the preview several times) I see something else about the layout that I want to alter.

    Question is - is it my own hubpages version of stage fright or do the hubs really look slightly different when they appear as published to how they look in the preview version? Maybe it is the ads. that get added that make them look different to me.

    I know it is an odd question but I am getting annoyed with myself for the mini edit I do after pressing the publish button.

    If you save your Hub unpublished and take a look at it that way, you'll get to see how it will finally appear with the ads.

      Thank you relache, now you have told me that it seems so   obvious,I had forgotten about that. When I think about it the ones I save and come back to over a number of days seem to work better and that is probably why. Thanks again.

      Agreed. I don't publish a Hub, until I've completely re-read, then re-read it, at least 3x. I save at it as unpublished, then later publish it.

    2uesday, my last few hubs I have saved for 24 hours before clicking that publish button! I think sometimes after working hard on a hub, we are so quick to push that button when it really needs a break, at least for me, before that final edit.

    I need that break from the hub and come back and review again and do final edit before I hit publish. and also I have seen that waiting even for 24 hours, it gets published with a higher score!

      This is great advice.  I know that when I publish and then come back later there is something that I want to change.  Normally because my brain is moving ALOT faster than my poor fingers and my thoughts are always run on sentences  smile

      Making sure you keep that time to re-read your information is crucial.  I am new, so I am going to have to make sure and do it!

      Thanks again!

    I agree, Rebekah. I often write a piece and put it away for a whole week. I think my mind knows the mistakes so well that it overlooks them, kinda. When I open them and read a week later, those mistakes jump out at me and I make it a better piece.

    That is, before I wrote so much that I don't have a week to wait, lol. But even a couple of days is better than right after I wrote it. It's about as good as having someone else look it over, only you don't have to trust they won't make a mistake because it's you looking it over.

    Thank you all for your help and advice, it all makes sense and I will try to get into the habit of leaving the hubs at least a day or so before publishing them.

    The last couple of weeks I have had less time to write and when I get to put the ideas into a hub; the habit of waiting before publishing which is what I did at first got lost.

    From now on I take the advice given and will leave the hub for at least 24 hours especailly as rebekah says it will get published with a higher score. Thanks again for the help.

    I think one of the things that hapens is that when I see the colours and words of the ads. sometimes I am ok with them and other times I feel like moving my text and pictures around. It does not really make sense to feel like this as they change so often.

    Thank you, everyone, for sharing  here. I am one who tends to click the Publish icon too quickly. Everyone's comments here have encouraged me to adopt a better habit. Thank you!
