    Promoting it.

    Each time I write a hub, I opening up all of the webpages I advertise to all at once.  Then I just copy and paste a link, submit it, and it's done.

    Granted, I don't over advertise.  I only use Pinterest and StumbleUpon.

    Writing a hub, by far, is easier. I don't like promoting, myself or anything else. That's why I'd be a horrible sales person! I think it's just not part of my personality.

      Same here---I completely agree with your views. Thanks for your opinion.

    I'd rather write than promote. I suck at SEO. When I finish a Hub I throw the link up on my Facebook page and at a couple of forums I hang out on and that's the limit of my "promotion." I don't have the time or the patience to do much more than that.

      SEO is so vast a subject, that everyday something new comes up. No knowledge is complete. It eats up a lot of 'Time', which is scarce for everyone. Writing, I believe is easier, because you know the subject, you are writing about. Thanks for replying

    Although writing a hub and researching can take a lot of time, I don't find it difficult. But promoting my hubs, yes, I do find this very  hard.

      You enjoy doing, what you are interested in. Therefore writing is enjoyable, even if it takes time. Thanks for answering.

    By far promoting it. I find this very aggravating and bothersome.

    I don't put much effort into optimizing my article for search engines, so writing is the easy/fun part for me. But promoting them is like pulling teeth. You could put the seeds out on one site and not see returns for months. Though, searching for copywrite infringement of your articles is even worse than promoting them.

      I agree.  I don't often go searching for copyright though.

      Thanks for your response and I agree, writing is enjoyable. The promotion and searching for copyright infringement is extra burden.

    By far, I prefer writing.  I really don't care for the promoting part, and I don't do it often.  I am on some FB groups, and once in a great while I will share there.  But I don't care for the spam-level of sharing.

    For a while, after the 'idling' process hit the site, one particular writer here posted her poems on FB groups (and elsewhere, I believe) in droves - like five a day, every single day.  I couldn't handle that, so I unfollowed her here and unfriended her on FB - I think I may have even blocked her.  It's sad when 'promoting' gets so out of hand that it causes that reaction.

      Even I find writing easier to promoting. Thanks for your reply.

    I'm an author, so I much prefer writing. However, it's much easier and takes much less time promoting. I promote on my Facebook profile, fan pages, and group; Pinterest; Google profile and communities; LinkedIn, and other social media. It takes me approximately 30 minutes to promote them there. However, I don't load the same hub for each of them on the same day because I may have some of the same followers in all those areas. Therefore, I keep a log of which ones I have posted in the different areas so that I don't duplicate. Though it's easier to promote and takes less time, I sometimes forget to do it. hmm

      I agree writing is easier, since we enjoy it. Whereas, promoting seems like a homework on a holiday.
      Thanks for sharing your opinion.

    I'd say the writing part is easiest. I enjoy this aspect of hubbing, and I also like publishing it and adding in images, videos and links, among other things.

    I've not had the best of luck promoting my hubs, especially over the past few months. I'm not the greatest at SEO, and a lot of the methods I've tried are not very successful.

      My views are the same as yours. And even I am poor at promoting my hubs. Thanks!

    agree, promoting is way much easier than writing. You need to think, research , type out, takes a long time than a couple of minutes to just paste the link to promote.

      Perhaps the question should have been, which activity is enjoyable to you. I agree, promoting is easier, because you just have to copy, paste the url. Thanks for answering and sharing your opinion.

    I think promoting is easier but I prefer and enjoy the writing more.  When I define what is easier, it's just what is faster and simpler to me.  When I write, this is a longer process.  Even if I write an article quickly, I still let it sit around a day or more so I can go back to it with fresh eyes and make changes before publishing it.  In that sense, it takes longer and is more involved.

      Rightly said-----Writing is a longer process, but it is interesting to you. So, you enjoy the activity. You got my point. Thanks for answering!
