How often do you go through old hubs to proofread and update them?
I usually go through and update them a little every couple months. Sometimes I will add google keywords, sometimes I will chop up my paragraphs to make them not look so long and sometimes I will add a little extra information.
I go through then once they hit idle status, or close to it if I catch them in time. For the most part I have written what I want to say. It isn't about marketing for me, so I change very little, punctuation or the way the copyright statement is worded. A lot of what I write is poetry and I don't want to edit it, so I change some small aspect, like a comma or something then republish.
I go through them when I notice that any of them are in 'ideal' state, and update them if I think it is worth doing.
I make minor changes, if a particular hub is getting less page views. Generally, it improves in views after that.
Lately I do it a few times a week. I like to try and update hubs with information that is changing on a regular basis.
Honestly, only when they become idle. This is the how I edit 99% of the time.

When I write things I find myself constantly rereading what I've written to make sure it makes sense and to hopefully catch grammatical or spelling errors. There's no way I can do this myself, but do some of you have the talent to just write straight through and then proofreading maybe only...
