I try my best, but if I feel I'm just spewing nonsense I'll stop, delete the nonsense, and wrap it up efficiently.
I do, on the other hand, attempt to reach the 3 photos and 2+ quizzes/tables, etc.
I try to write between 850-1000 words, if flow goes then more word count is possible. Probably, I do add atleast 3 pictures because it is required to make hub engaging. after that, 1-2 interesting polls will do good.
I try hitting those targets but sometimes it's hard. but they are good in terms of ensuring quality content .
With many hubs it is impossible to satisfy all of their goals. Take for instance recipes. There is just no way. It is certainly not feasible to write a 1250 word summary on one dish. So, I do the best I can and hopefully get published.
I usually have no problem hitting the word count. In fact, there are times when I pare down the text so it isn't so long people lose interest. I do try to reach the other goals, but don't always make it or even care. If I can't find a video that's enough on topic to be pertinent, I don't add a video just to have something there.
Yes, always. "Try" that is.
I will always try to hit the goals that make sense for the hub I am writing.
Certainly in terms of word count and picture count I always exceed it. In terms of adding extra panels such as maps and polls, I always try and think of something that will add a little more interest to the hub and if I can't then I don't. I never sacrifice the overall integrity of my hub to add one more thing unless it makes sense.

What happened to my little blue tip box I have become so attached to? I let me know how many words I had, if an image was not clear enough, and let me know when my hub was presentable and ready to publish.

One thing that motivates me on Hubpages is setting mini-goals for myself. The first one was pretty common, to get my first pay out. Then it was to get the payout monthly, to earn more each successive month, to obtain a 1,000 views per day etc...My current mini-goal is to reach 2,500 views per day,...

Do You Have Goals For Your Hub Pages Account?I am a goal setter as I feel it helps me reach higher in my life. My goals for 2013 with hub Pages is to hit 340 hubs ( at 171 now in 2/13) and to reach at least the minimum payout amount of $50 each month. Anyone else have any specific goals?

When I first started at HubPages, I wrote several Hubs of around 800 to 900 words. Now the goals for creating quality Hubs include 1250 or more words of content. I've noticed that some Hubbers seem to be padding their Hubs with irrelevant or superfluous content to hit these goals, and I admit it...
