    Are You Writing New Content For HubPages?

    Considering that I am following over 1,500 Hubbers, it is hard to believe how few new Hubs are currently being published by people I follow here at HubPages.  The last few days, it has been between 3 and 5 new Hubs per day.  It used to be a list in the range of 15 to 25 new Hubs per day.  Are you writing new content for HubPages?  If not, why have you taken a break?

    I usually write a bunch of Hubs, then publish. I know this probably doesn't make a lot of sense, but it is how I do it. Usually it is because I have written the content, but don't have the visual effects yet. I have about 3 or 4 Hubs waiting in the wings. When I find some pics and videos I will publish them, but I am not in a big hurry because I don't really make any money doing this. I think at the rate I am going, I might get my first check next year! lol

      That's a good way to publish Hubs.  I find that I tend to write more Hubs when i work on a bunch at one time.  My main reason for not publishing recently is other priorities,. but I'll be back!

      I also have a lot of priorities right now, but in about a month my plate will be clean and I can focus a short amount of time to hammering out a few Hubs.

    I am writing new content, John. Still working on my latest hub. But with all the changes going on, it doesn't surprise me that productivity is down. People are discouraged, I've seen forums expressing the same. Some hubbers have even left. I plan to stay and keep writing, even if it's not as frequent.

      Yes, the traffic/money is down and the trolls are up. There r a lot people who just comment, yet they don't write hubs . I am all for more people being here, but those kind of people just trash up the place.

      That's what I am wondering?  Are people fed up and not writing for that reason?

      I think so. This has become less of a writing site and more of a "debating" spot for a lot of people that don't contribute any hubs.

    When I first started I wrote new content on a regular basis. Now I have been in a long hiatus and wish to start publishing new content and re-publish hubs I have chosen to un-publish (due to lack of quality as determined by featured hub icon.)

    For me, I took a break to work on promotion of the hubs that I have - Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram. (And I need to work on Facebook promotions.)

    Also, I should mention I have started my own website (also to promote my hubs) and will be expanding my subjects to include new technology such as iPads and software apps and other software as a service applications. I have always enjoyed technology so I am looking forward to this writing arena.

      It sounds as if you've been doing a lot of the things that need to be done to drive traffic to Hubs.  Better to focus on your good and productive Hubs.  Perhaps cherry pick some old ones to refurbish and republish.

    Don't take the numbers at fact value, John. One of my biggest complaints is that I don't receive email notifications from some of my favorite hubbers that I follow. Ever so often I get curious and visit their page where I find that I've missed a number of good hubs, and regretfully, I don't have the time to play catch-up.
    That also explains why some people who used to read my hubs faithfully aren't reading them anymore or are only reading them spasmodically. I don't publish that often because of a full-time editing position, but I like to keep in touch with my HP friends.
    Usually anything I write is new content, but now I am going back and reworking some of those HP shelved. That puzzles me too because they have shelved some that have more readership than some they've left active.

    Thanks for that insight MizBejabbers.  I did not know that was a technical issue here at HubPages.  I have had that problem on other sites that I follow authors on.

    Good question. Regarding hub content I have not been contributing new works of late. The challenge I have is getting them to the optimal size. I have challenges because they are of more words than what is optimal for the general market sought. I think overall it is just I am in a phase of growth personally. I have not been able to make all the adjustments in order to focus on the magical formula for hub writing.

    I am trying to write at least one new hub a month. I maintain a blog, separately, and work, so this is certainly a side activity for me.
