    I need some feedback from new and well-established hubbers on the target number of articles they intend to publish in 2020.

      Everyone is different. These days I write when I feel like it, so sometimes it might be two in a week or two in three months. When I wrote for a couple of commercial sites, I wrote a 1,000 word article on Monday, Tuesday and Weds of every week, even Christmas, for three years.

      So... it's about what you can manage, what fits in with your schedule and how much you are inspired to write. My tip to writing efficiently is to have the topic, the research, your approach/angle, and your subheadings (as structure). Once you have those bare bones, it's easy.

      If you go to my profile, I have written a piece about writing articles at HubPages. It'll come up in the slider. You might find it helpful.

        Thank you, I'll be waiting for that. I intend to publish about 100 articles in 2020, hopefully I can even exceed that. I only write when I find an interesting issue, lets hope 2020 will provide those interesting issues.

      I agree with Dr. Mark - one a week is an attainable goal.  Who knows?  You might even end up writing more.  Whenever I set a goal for articles, I always end up exceeding it.

        True Indeed, goals are meant to be exceeded, one article per week will be a good starting point, but I am aiming for three articles per week.

    I am currently publishing about three every two weeks, so I'd say around 70 or so.

      I have 3 every week, so I might exceed 70, that's encouraging.

    I think about one per month, but as Bev points out we are all at different stages of this journey.
    When I started out I published almost every day. (A lot of those were later deleted, but I still have over 300.) Since you are only beginning with HP, I think that one a week is a good and reachable goal. Figure on 52 this year.
    If you do not have the first one ready to publish, get to it. Times a wastin´.

      Very true, I am just starting out at HP so I have a lot of catching up to do, if I reach 300 am sure I'll also have the luxury of writing an article each month. At least 100 this year will be a good achievement.

        100 is a great goal. You would not be overdoing it, like those who try the "30 hubs in 30 days challenge" but it will give you something to work on everyday.
        Best of luck.

          30 hubs in 30 days, translate to a hub a day, even if I had the tools for that challenge I don't think I have the energy for it. Thank You very much, I'll try to continue at my pace.

            If you look back on the forums you will see all sorts of people who accepted that challenge. I do not think any of them produced anything of lasting value.
            Stay at your pace.

    My goal for the rest of the year is to publish 1 article per week. I feel that this helps me to stay consistent and it also gives me enough time to write a quality article. But like others have said, everyone is different and there are definitely days when you just don't feel like writing anything or no good inspiration comes to mind

      This was my initial goal, but it seems am running on fumes these days, can barely reach the 25 article threshold.

    I go for two articles per month no matter how interesting the topic is.    Had to dig references specific encyclopedia peer reviews, and and specialized texts.              Also taking time to go through the story, and picking out errors in spelling, mechanically accurate punctuations, including paragraph if the article is over 2000. I ensure that it got feature at first instance now-adays.

      Two articles per month is a manageable target. Are specialized text keywords?.

    I published 7 this year, which is a big chunk of all that I have. One a week is a good idea. You should keep in mind that evergreen articles tend to do well on HP. Writing on current events needs good social networking if you want to publish here.

    I don't have a "plan" or a particular number of articles in mind. If I feel like writing something new, I do it. When I don't, I don't.
