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

I just read a Hub that said that the author was going to go to the freelance website and pay people to write articles for him that he would put on HubPages to make himself money from. That can't be okay with the HubPages site, is it? A couple of people commented, including an author that I have...

Is anyone finding that traffic to their Dengarden articles isn't increasing? Usually at this time of year, traffic starts to climb, instead it's either declining or staying stagnant. Views are 50% down on last year.

Three photos are a minimum requirement for an article at HP. The use of one video I think is not idea. Let's brain storm, right?
