How Unpublished Hubs Do You Have?

    When a new contest comes up, I create a bunch of potential hubs, so I still have a few undeveloped cooking hubs. I also have a few hubs ideas from last week's contest and then several for this weeks contest. As I browse the Internet I come up with some really good ideas for hubs and create the hubs, but again, don't finish them right away.

    Now, although I have several unpublished hubs, many have a good deal of writing in them and several do make it to publishing. Even though it can take up to six months for me to finish and publish some of these hubs, I do finish them.

    I have 52 hubs that I've published, but a few of them will eventually go through some major revamping.

    I have 32 UNPUBLISHED hubs. What about you?

      i'm a OCD-plagued English major and I write up all my hubs in a word processor and obsess over every detail, then plug them into hubpages completely finished. I write subject ideas down on a post it note, but I don't start up a new hub until after it's written, and even then I concentrate pretty heavily on one subject at a time.
      By the way, your hubs' scores fluctuate even unpublished. So if you plug in a finished article but don't publish it, your score will go higher, and when you post you get a head start. But I'm too impatient to do that.
      Also, unpublished hubs get views. Staff members, perhaps? I don't know.

        Your own views are counted whether your hub is published or not.

    one...I work on one at a time and get it done before moving on to the next one.

    I generally keep about a dozen unpublished. I like having them there because it ensures that I always have something I can work on.

    I presently have 31 hubs unpublished and that's after just recently completing the first phase of the 60 Day Challenge, which is to write 30 hubs in 30 days. smile

    None. I do one at a time. I do the skeleton/bones of it and add to it over a day or two.
    BUT I have 4 almost ready in a document folder on my desktop.One for info barrel, two  for hubpages, and one for snipsly.

    I have eleven, but they're Hubs that were published and I unpublished because I thought better of having them up.  I'm in the process of cleaning up some of the stuff I have on here, have deleted twelve or so (I think) (Maybe for some other use.)  I'm thinking what, if anything, to do about the ones I "re-thought".  Some of them I publish and unpublish, depending on my mood.  smile  One way or another, I have to do a major over-haul of what's built up on here now.  Most of the time, if I start to write a Hub I'll finish it and publish it, so I don't very often have unfinished ones left unpublished.  If I don't finish them I lose interest in them, never finish them, and delete them instead of ever finishing them.    Maybe there's something wrong with me, but if I interrupt whatever I'm writing, I'm not likely to be able to go back and be interested in it again.

    I do one at a time, don't like too much clutter. Being focussed helps me. That is just my personal work habit.

    About 10, but some are only titles I don't want to forget

    I like to have a handful of topics ready to go - if they're keyword researched it's a good way to have something to jump into when the mood strikes.

    Some days I'll do research, save maybe half a dozen hubs and leave them for when I feel like writing.

    If a hub goes for longer than two months I just figure I'm not going to do it and delete it...

    171, although I suspect that I will end up deleting a fair few.

    I like to keep a big pot, and try to stick to picking out of that pot. I tend to do my keyword research in bulk.

      Same, I'm all about doing the keyword research, creating the hubs that go with the keywords so I get the good URLs and then slowly publish hub by hub. As I write hubs I come up with ideas for more hubs and I just can't write as fast as the ideas come!

    None because I always aim to finish what I have started and have got into doing so here!

      That's will power Bard!!

      I'm weak in this area, as I've got 65 waiting for me to publish them, I think I can hear them sometimes calling me lol!

    4 at the moment. Unusual for me, I usually write my hubs straight into hubpages. smile

    I have two at the moment. One of which I will work on this weekend and publish. That one is a pretty easy hub to write.

    I have another which I've had outlined and has been sitting there waiting to be published for over a year! That one requires a lot of research, and every time I start on it I stop. Who would've thought that a hub on Common misconceptions about the sinking of the Titanic could stump me. I should just delete the hub, but I can't bring myself to do it.

    I have 2. One that is completed but it was about my childhood/abuse and the abuser has changed and I'm trying to build a relationship somewhat so I don't want something that is out quite yet.

    The other one, I need to do some more research on it.
