How much time do you normally require to write a hub on the average?
I am asking this because I can easily write a hub within 30-40 minutes time and sometimes a hub will take a couple of hours or so. BUT food hubs are taking a lot longer to complete, maybe because I haven't written much articles on food before. Are you experiencing the same?
Well if you go by my average...let's see, carry the 2..that makes 3 hubs a month....3 into 30 days...
k...apparently, it takes me 10 days per hub.
I'm impressed. It's taking me far too long at the moment and I need to speed up. I constantly change things around before I publish - rather than sometimes just publishing.
it depends for me..at times it takes hardly 15-30 minutes but at times i start but before i finish it take hours..
30-40 minutes !
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha !
In my content-rich hubs, it can take me a span of time of TWO MONTHS, working four hours a day, five days a week.
Research, photo selection, tag selection, writing, re-writing, composing the hub [here there are always glitches in the hub software, so the process is fraught with failures at this stage, requiring much patience to weather] .....
I cannot conceive of how it possible to write a quality hub in such a short amount of time that you claim. Think I'll go read one of yours now.
It depends on the idea behind the hub. I can write a hub in under 30 minutes and have done so on certain occasion when it warranted.
I do not write hubs on food, because I have no interest in writing such hubs, even though I do cook for myself all the time.
Sometimes the idea encompasses a lot of information and could take longer than 30 minutes and even 1 or 2 days to complete.
It takes me a ridiculously long time to write/research a hub. I generally do the two at the same time, and usually I'll do one in a day, although I do spend the majority of that day procrastinating. I think this is one of my biggest problems. I don't research properly, and I get distracted a lot so my writing is not high quality and I'm fairly sure I haven't got all this keyword stuff totally figured out yet.
I reckon if I just sat down to write/research a hub, no distractions, it would take a few hours maybe less.
I write one in about 2 hours. I usually do it on and off over a few hours though as I write other things at the same time.
I think it all depends on the content, how well I know the subject, and the slant of it. Some Hubs are more factual and need more research; but if it is a topic I know really well, I may not need to research it very much at all. Opinions and product reviews would have a different type of time requirement.
And then, I also try to do rewrites for clarity, consistency, thoroughness or whatever. Writing any Hub in less than an hour sounds like a wonderful dream to me. Congratulations that you can do it!
Well, I've only written four hubs so far, but they all took about an hour for me to write. Of course, I write about things that I already know very well! There is only one that I had to do any research on at all, but even that was just finding a particular name and making sure I had the regions correct. I suppose once I start writing more on topics that require more research, then it will take longer.
First off, let me Welcome you to HubPages.
Secondly, if you like to improve your hubs, for which, I just looked at, I would suggest you visit the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum thread, open a thread and post your 4 links.
The Extreme Hub Makeover thread is all about letting the hubber community the opportunity to critique your hubs and offer advice.
Remember, ask for critics, post the links(posting your links in this thread is allowed) and let the veteran hubbers have a gander.
With the uploading, tweaking, writing and images, id say about an hour for me too
it takes me quite a while to put together a decent hub. with the research, etc. 4-6 hours total,sometimes longer, but usually not all at one sitting, I can't sit at a computer all day.
the contest hubs do require more time, especially if you want judges attention. I hope to write this weekend.
I keep missing the 3 p.m. puzzle contest!
I think my first hub, I wrote very quickly, more like a blog entry, but now quite a bit of reading/research goes into my hubs.
If I'm just ranting off the top of my head, a half hour to forty minutes to write, another hour to get pictures and stuff, so call it two hours.
Research hubs (and more serious humor) take more, from six to even twenty hours work time (aka several days or a week).
If it's a topic I know well, I can write something in 20-30 minutes usually. If it's a topic that will require more research, I'm looking at something more like 2-3 hours. I stall a lot too so that probably doesn't help for hubs on topics that I'm not brilliantly familiar with!
Pretty much a loaded question. Some hubs I write in under thirty minutes while others take hours.
I guess it all depends on research, pictures and so forth.
Anything from 2-5 hours. The "stuff" hubs take me the least time, while the more abstract/conceptual ones do need a lot more tinkering before I'm happy with them.
From start to finish in about 3 hours. When I have an idea, I run with it! So far I haven't had to do much in the way of research....
I typically take about a half hour (30 min) for stuff I know about and 30 minutes for pictures so all in all about 1 hour. B
ut lately I've been setting on hubs for days before I publish them, I started doing this with the up coming food challenge. The food hubs do take a lot more time, hours which often turned into days for me. In fact I burned out after my 6th food hub and called it quits.
I noticed as my hubs set unpublished the hub score rose, hum... I began holding back hubs prolonging the publishing and found that for every hub, regardless of content or level of information, the hub scores rose as it set in waiting.
I wonder if anyone has more insights as to why this would occur. I'm slowing down in general and making certain my hubs are better quality than my past hubs.
Good question and interesting topic.
It has taken me on average 2 to 4 hours to write a hub, because I do a lot of research on the topic I am writing about and I want to provide as accurate information as I can. It can be time consuming but its worth it in the end.
It takes me forever to get around to writing a hub, I know what I want to say...but can never figure out a way to put my point across.
same here having problem writing a hub? Tried writing like 5 of them last night but i couldn't.
It takes me about an hour to write a hub, but six weeks to leave the forums long enough to do it...
It depends on the topic and where you want to take it.
This one took me for about 6 hours....
This one was banged out in 30 minutes http://hubpages.com/hub/Stupid-Parking-Videos
Of which about 20 minutes was spent messing about watching YouTube videos! (Or 'research' as they call it )
If its a topic that I am knowledgeable about it only takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Some take up to 2 hours with research.
Most of mine take me about 2-3 hours, but one took me 15 hours of straight writing.
It takes me around 30 minutes. My best hub has made $50 this month, so that's going to be an incredible hourly rate after a couple of years!
It entirely depends on what the hub is about, how long it will be, and how much research a person needs to do. A hub could take 2 minutes, 2 days, or even 2 weeks!
I honestly have no idea. I write all my hubs in little spurts of ten minutes or so and leave them festering unpublished for quite some time. Maybe the writing might take about an hour or two altogether, but then I like to use all my own photos, if I can, so sometimes that takes longer especially if I haven't got any, like with the one I'm working on now.
The time to write a hub is dependent on the subject. Right now I am halfway through a 30 part serial and it will take nealry an hour as I sometimes stop to go back and read prior hubs to make sure the continuity is right. Thirty minutes seems way too short to me for a quality hub, but perhaps I am just slow.
It takes me forever to write a Hub -research/writing/editing
At this pace I'm averaging a Hub a month - what a blistering pace (LOL)
I'm sure like anything; the more Hubs you do the easier it gets...........
Wow 30 minutes that is quick!
I have only written a couple but they did take a little longer than 30 minutes, maybe because I was learning the ropes.
I now have 4 others in the writing stage and they seem to be taking a very long time however at least two of them are very factual so I have an excuse.
Down the road I hope they will become second nature, here's wishing for now anyway.
I'd say the average time is takes me is an hour. But like many others this depends if I have to research and how much I know about the topic already.
I usually don't fix definite time to any of those hubs I wrote. I write to enjoy, the longer I write, the better. I'm not a compulsive writer, as writing gives me enough pleasure especially when I know I wrote them at my best.

Hi Hubbers,I am curious as to how long you would spend from start to finish on any particular hub, do you set yourself an amount of time to spend on it? Would you spend longer than one day on one hub?tlcs is curious!
by Holle Abee 12 years ago
A form of this question came up in a recent thread. I responded that I can and have written more than 10 hubs or articles in one day. I just finished a hub, and it took me 19 minutes to write it. It's 800 words long. Many of the articles I write for publishers are only 500 words long. So, you see,...

I was just wondering how long a hub takes you to write from concept to published? I am using hubpages as the start of my freelance writing career and I am working being more productive. I am also only doing my second hub now. I have an editor now so that will add time to the process still...

Hey. I was wondering how long it takes you to write a hub. Perhaps an average time overall or for various types of hubs. I read somewhere of a guy who wrote 10 hubs a day for 10 days! In my dreams. I take well over two hours per hub. Probably more if I added it all up. Thanks,Juliet

How long do you take on average to write a hub. I mean the whole process, research, writing etc. What would you say is the average for you?
by Lena M. 13 years ago
I'm new to Hubpages, as I joined about two weeks ago.I've been looking around and there are many quite prolific hubbers.I know that quality is what matters, but out of curiosity, how long do you spend writing each hub? Including any research, writing, editing.
