    Do you publish your Hubs as soon as you finish them?

    I find that I have several Hubs completely done and edited, but have not published them.  I like to publish on Tuesday through Thursday and no more than two a week.  There are a variety of reasons for the order I decide to publish them.  I have one that has been done for over a month. What are your publishing release habits?  Why?

    It just depends. I normally will only publish 2 per day. The reason being is I don't want to overwhelm readers with anymore than that. I publish Hubs 7 days a week. I do not have certain days I will publish. Which I think you have a great idea, since the traffic is so slow on the weekends.

    I don't really have any publishing "habits." I just try to keep to a schedule of at least one per week (or more if the mood/inspiration strikes me and I have the free time to bang 'em out).

    I just finished one and published it. Today's Sunday. Well actually it's almost three o'clock in the morning local time, so it's now Monday. As soon as I finish writing, I publish. The way I see it, if a topic is interesting to someone they'll find it sooner or later. This is the internet so there's no short shelf-life. When writing for newspapers I care what day it is, but not on the 'net.

    I switch things up from time to time. For awhile I'd do my research in advance, then write one or two and publish as soon as they were written. Lately, I research everything I'm writing in advance, Spend a day or two writing. Then spread out the uploading over the next week, about 1 or 2 at a time.

    When completing a topic for a hub I publish them immediately but I try not to publish too many in a one week period.  I typically publish not more than 3 per week sometimes less.  It depends on the topics as to how long it takes to complete them.

    I don't think I publish enough for it to matter.  I just put them up when I am finished.

    It depends. I usually like to let a Hub "simmer" for a day, then come back with some minor edits/tweaks and take care of the photography. Sometimes I'll give it another day.

    I usually just publish it when it's done, whatever day or time that happens to be. I don't think the short-term traffic that comes when a hub is first published will make much difference over the lifetime of that hub. I used to let them sit a day because the hubscore would rise a little, but I now recognize that the hubscore is really a meaningless number. The 24 hour wait after publishing before the hub becomes featured has also made me feel that I need to get that process started.

    No, I like to let them sit for a day so I can go over them with a fresh eye. I can't believe the mistakes I find that I totally overlooked the first time through.

    Before I publish a Hub, I'll generally edit to ensure there are no spelling or punctuation errors; then I'll double-check if the cover pic is what I want to keep, as well  the Hub title, to verify that what the body discusses matches the title. Nobody that I know of on here is an actual signed auther- again as far as I am aware. My Hubs are something that a lot of time and searching was put into as is everyone elses I'm sure. Really, it's just literary "art" to me, but firstly I'd like people to read them and come to God. He's totally the coolest and most loving person you will ever know.

    I try to have three or four in progress so that I can publish frequently. If I finish one quickly, then I let it wait a day or two for the score to rise. Then I read over it again and publish. If I have been working off and on with a hub over several days then the score is usually already up to a decent number, so I will publish as soon as it is done.

    I try to go in the next week and do a re-read to catch typos and bad writing. That doesn't always work. Still cleaning up hubs from months ago. Every month I try to tweak a few older hubs and freshen them up as I learn new things.

    I typically write my hubs. Then, I look it over for misspellings and comma errors. After this, I publish it. It is recommended that you publish your hub and ad more information, pictures, videos, and table capsules while coming back periodically and editing. This way, you don't want the risk of your hub not being featured 3 months later.

    depending on my mood. If i am sure that my hubs are completed and no errors, i will hit the "publish" button. Otherwise, i will leave them "unpublish" until i finish the rest.

    Yeah, I usually publish my hubs immediately as soon as I finish it. Before I encode a single word pertaining to that hub, I see to it that I have gone over it, revised it and edit any grammatical errors. I usually don't want to let my hubs sleep because I find delight in seeing my works in print as soon as possible.

    I normally do...but truth be told, from start to finish, my hub writing process is very lengthy...I some more...then publish...I know you can't tell from my hubs, but I do.
