How often do you try to post hubs?
Hello, I just joined three days ago. I've been trying to write a post a day for now, just to try and get my traffic up. However, I was wondering how often more established pages post? If you don't post for awhile, do you have to build back up? Any comments would be helpful, thanks in advance.
Well I'd love to publish something every day - but I kinda run out of things to write about. I also usually think that if I'm forcing myself to write something that it may not be very good material, and so, a waste of my time.
On the other hand, sometimes things I don't think are good do rather well in terms of steady traffic
Thank you! When you run out of inspiration, do you normally just wait until it strikes again, or do you have any strategies to help?
Well, a good long walk or bicycle ride tend to help shake something loose in the head sometimes
Turning out a huge volume of really worthwhile articles consistently over a period of time is likely to be difficult for most people. The exceptions would be people who have been writing for years and have quite a lot of material sitting around. Our local writer's club members all have bushel baskets full of stuff they've written over the years--or massive computer files of their writings. There are some people who have written books that lend themselves to putting up piecemeal.
Most writing takes a lot of time. Most likely, the people writing about that beautiful rose actually grew it. Some of my articles (the ones on plumbing come to mind) grew out of years of experience. To write about homemade soap, you have to make a few batches of soap, etc.
There is a limit to how much you can rush this stuff.
I think of publishing hubs every day. But most of the time I feel lazy to write.
Recently, I strategically built up a ton of draft hubs and then released them all on Monday (the best day of the week for traffic), staggered and everything so I could nail every time zone. All that effort resulted in next to nothing, while elsewhere people are claiming that far less ambitious tactics, like submitting 3 hubs all at once on some random day results in a huge traffic boost. I think there's a lot of variables involved in traffic and I don't think I've isolated the most important one yet. Publishing frequency alone isn't the answer as far as I can tell.
I write maybe 2 hubs every 3 months.
Once you have a base of hubs that get good traffic and money, you can just leave them to earn.
i post once a month cause i am sick and tired of unfeatured hubs

Just out of curiosity I would like to know how often you guys write hubs, once a day? A week? A month?I used to write one every other day, but after summer ended and I got busier I know plan to write 2-3 hubs on the weekends (once on friday, sat, and sunday).

Writing has always been my way of talking when no-one is listening so finding HubPages is as good as picking up the phone and knowing there is someone on the other end of the line.My problem is that I have so much to write about I don't know what my niche is or if I even want one. What do you think...

A few days ago I reposted a comment that another hubber had taken from Google. The comment stated that if you wrote about what you know, your reputation would improve. In fact, if you were writing about issue relating to money or health, unless you had some authority your articles would be graded...

do a lot of you write all the time? What first inspired you to write? What do you like to write about? I love to write fiction and am getting back into writing poetry. It's fun to read everyone's hubs. Everyone is so diverse. It's great.

I have tried all the old tips here for improving hubs and recently I have also tweaked all the idled ones, I have deleted a lot and moved a lot more elsewhere...and I have tried waiting, and after all this my earnings are the worst they have ever been! I was actually doing better before I...
