    What is your goal for writing Hubs a year?

    Could you share your experience with how long to write a Hub, how often publishing one, and other recommendations?

    I used to spend 2 to 3 days for publishing a hub of approx. 1500 or more words.
    My early months at HP has been with shorter hubs of around 900 words only. In 2 months, I published 4 hubs and qualified for the rising star accolade. I continued the same schedule of writing two hubs per month. But, the 2nd year saw some staggering and I could complete only 36 hubs in 2 whole years. The third year has been still bad. I produced only 7 hubs as I devoted much time in getting my economics book published at KDP.
    I would recommend one hub per week, if you can do it without putting stress.
    And, I recommend articles of at least 1500 to 1800 words always with good content and appealing images along with one video.

      Thank you Venkatachari! Once upon a time I pounded the keys with a Hub or two a week. Today I published every two months and in streaks. I need to wind up writing mechanism again.

    I write for a very very special audience.  My goal is to give them one topical and excellent article a month.

      Great goal. I think that may be my goal. I am just beginning to publish information articles. I have published more poetry.

    I stopped writing hubs on a regular basis and switched to questions because of the negative return on my time and energy from the hubs.

    Even the ?s area is not filled with plentiful views much less comments. I did several hubs on that subject. Again, not much response. I have called hubs and questions on hp more like putting a message in a bottle and tossing it from the deserted island into the ocean.

    Someone may someday find it, but that is a long shot.

      I agree with it is like a message in a bottle. HP is like a sea and Google is the ocean. I did to learn to swim or get a row boat.

      A footnote is an edit. I 'need' to learn to swim or get a row boat. I am learning still editing is a writer thing ;-)

      In the days of the DAT, Digital Audio Tape when they were used as sys backup. A tape that was recorded might not be able to return the recording. they embedded, a Read after Write to ensure. I don't read after writing most of the time, oops

      Tim, I am also conscious of editing after writing, especially while commenting or replying to others. This is possible because, there is much small content. But, in articles, it may slip if not supported by Grammarly.

    I try to write an article a day and submit it somewhere, sometimes to Hubpages.
    Depending on the topic, it may take an hour or a day of research.
