Do you normally take a deep breath after hitting the 'Publish now' option?
Writing involves full involvement, research, concentration, as all of you know obviously because this is a community of great writers. How does it feel, when you have finished writing and are about to hit the 'publish' button?
It is a very nice feeling. When your heart & mind waiting how will the world receive your hub.
Thanks Taleb80, for your response to the question! The excitement is great after publishing, to see how it will be received. Thanks!
Yes, it is a weird feeling. It is a mixture of relief, nerves and also wonder as to how the hub will perform. It is a nice feeling for sure, publishing a hub, but strangely a little stressful too.
Thanks Robbie C Wilson, for answering the question. I completely agree with you, it is a feeling of relief and curiosity.
100%, I had that feel a few minutes above too when I published my first video hub. It is a great feeling. I enjoyed. The subsequent hours are of anxiety. Whether it will be featured or not is the reason for that feel. Finally when a positive confirmation is received from HP, I am thrilled. Hubbing is 100% exciting.
Before commenting here, I went to your latest video hub and I must say, you need to relax now, because its a wonderful hub and will be very well received.
I agree, Hubbing is exciting. Thanks for your response!
I absolutely love that feeling of accomplishment! I'm like slapping my hand on my desk and saying "Yes!" LOL.
Thanks Abby Campbell, for answering!
I have the same feeling as yours and next time, when I publish a new hub, I am going to slap my hand on the desk and say, 'Yes'! I loved the idea.
I love, when I accomplish a good hub. I like to send it into the universe and see what happens. You never know the next one you write could go viral. We can only hope but know the more you write the better and easier they get.
Thanks suzzycue, for your response to the question!
I share the same feeling as yours. Lot of thinking, involvement, hard work goes into writing a good hub. And when the 'universe' accepts and appreciates, its a wonderful feeling.
I fret about missing errors and I read these hubs over and over several months later to fix any lingering mistake. I have found errors on writing I published over a year ago. The eye does not catch everything at first glance. Spelling and grammar software only alerts you of certain goofs. If you misspell a word making it a new word you will not be alerted. Corral and coral had me embarrassed to think I hadn't noticed. This hub explains what I'm talking about: http://diana-lee.hubpages.com/hub/The-O … a-Seahorse and also synonyms will not show up on a spelling/grammar checker, so be careful. There are many of them. I goof these up often and I know better. So yes, I take a deep breath after I hit the Publish Now button.
Thanks Diana Lee, for answering the question! You are right, we might miss mistakes in the first glance. I clicked the link and read your interesting hub. And I get your point. Thanks for the 'edit' option, so that we can mend our mistakes.
yes, I do feel that way too. although , my profile score had risen but not for my newly published hubs.
Thanks peachpurple, for answering!
Do not worry about the scores, they keep fluctuating and it applies to everyone here.
But the sentiments are more or less the same.
Yes and I usually get quite nervous as well waiting to see how the hub will be received!
Thanks Seeker7, for your response to the question! Even I feel the same way, until I get a positive comment from a fellow hubber. The feeling is great---accomplishment, curiosity, excitement, nervousness and so on.
Yes. I take a deep breath and exhale a sigh of relief. I actually have a ritual when I'm about to publish a hub. When I feel the hub is ready to publish, I let it sit. I then go brew a cup of coffee, come back to my desk, hit the publish button, inhale, exhale, then sit back and relax. A nice cup of coffee is my little reward. I unwind from the newly published hub for a while before thinking of my next hub to write.
Thanks MarleneB, for responding to the question!
Yes the feeling is a sigh of relief, after all that effort. I like your idea of a coffee reward, after the accomplishment.
I usually take a deep breath before I type in the title of my Hub, then I don't breathe the whole time I'm typing. As I'm running out of oxygen, I notice that my creativity levels diminish and I begin to type more seriously. Once I hit the publish button, I then pass out and hopefully land somewhere on the floor that is void of any sharp objects. I then wake up hours later, only to realize that what I thought was the publish button, was actually the X button on my Notepad. Ha!
Thanks Insane Mundane, for your interesting answer!
I am sure you must be feeling the same way like most of us here.
Have a good day!
I take a deep breath because what I think is my great work isn't necessarily so and when I think "maybe", it's sometimes good. I just never know what to expect.
Thanks BuffaloGal1960, for answering the question!
Why to underestimate your work, which is good! This Online writing takes time to understand. As time passes by we understand it in a better way and perform better.
All the best!

I have just received an email notification that one of my "micro-poems" has been unpublished as it was found to contain "adult" content. Now this hub, "Micro-poem (No.8) Five Times a Day" was published months ago on my first attempt and featured. I have never made any...

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to HubPages, already substantially larger than Twitter and Reddit. Maddie wrote a...

If you are relatively new here and wish your new hubs to be read when first published, then don't publish on or near the weekend. There is a possibility they will never be seen on the "latest hubs" pages. This isn't very important if you have been here awhile and have...

QUESTION: A few days ago, I would hit the "PUBLISH NOW," green button when I was publishing a hub, then a Gray box would appear with the message, "loading," inside the box and blink for a few seconds and then at the top of the hub, it would say, "You have published another...
