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, it's entirely possible to write 10 in a single day!
habee you are a super writer so that is possible LOL..
I guess it is possible to write a quality article in short time, but I have once tried to time my self and my average time is 2-4 hours per hub. I am slow I guess.
What is your secret? How is your grandchild now?
Thanks for asking! She just left my house. See her pic in my avatar? Brooklynn is doing much better!
My "secret" is that I've had a lot of practice writing! As with most things, practice makes us more efficient writers. As an English major, I had to do a lot of timed writings in college.
My hubs take me 30 minutes- 1 hour to publish. (depends what it is though)
I do not think it should take hours unless you need to do research, or are not fast at writing. I just wish I could think up more specific topics faster.
If I were to write amazon hubs it would prob take me 2-4 hours though. (Not good at them yet)
Hey Habee, if you didn't notice the 30 minute Instant Hub Challenge - I guess that could answer your question.
When I have participated in those Challenges, I've written anywhere between 700-900 words on average.
I guess I’m incredibly slow. And I seem to have a love-hate relationship with research. Even if the writing goes fairly quickly, putting the capsules together takes me a while. I try to always have photos, and include video when appropriate.
I think I did the max of 5 hubs per day a couple times for the June Food Hubs Contest, and a total of about 44 for the month, and it was grueling. I did the max of 3 hubs a day for the March Helpful Health hubs contest a couple of times, and a total of 28. Even though I wrote on topics I knew a lot about for the most part, it was still hard for me to pull off. And all of this was when I was not working. Other than the contests, I don’t think I’ve ever done more than two hubs in a day.
Hi, Rosemary! I prefer taking my time and enjoying the process. When I'm under pressure, however, I can turn out a hub/article pretty quickly.
I am soooo much slower than you are, rmcrayne! Give me a couple of weeks!
I'm constantly working on or editing my hubs. I'd say it's a continuous process but for a new hub, I typically take two to three days depending on what I'm doing and the length of the topic. The more intimate the topic, the longer I take.
My record is 8 hubs in one day. When I get down to it, I can write a hub in about 15 minutes if its an easy topic. I write a lot of sales hubs now, which I find are very easy to do. I set up about ten at a time, add pictures, Amazon items and leave them for when I feel like writing and publishing them.
I usually work on several hubs at a time because during my research on one article I get sidetracked and find something else I want to write about.
Actually writing the hub is the easy part. Being satisfied with it is the hardest.
Very rough average.
10 minutes thinking. Sometimes this could be an hour or more.
5-10 minutes searching - has it been done before - what angles have other people done on it - is it worth doing. What title, what keywords.
20 minutes (max) writing - into Word.
5 minutes to create in Hub with capsules and stuff.
5 minutes - monetising.
Publish - hooray.
5 minutes adrenalin rush, exhaustion, creative relief.
5 minutes editing - removing basic howlers, missing words, etc.
Then hours of watching stats, checking Adsense, worrying.
Sorry - bit too much detail.
It's about 30 minutes to one hour.
I'd very much recommend cutting out the thinking time. Thinking is SO overrated!
Well, I don't sit staring at computer thinking. It's while doing other tasks. Strictly speaking it's not really thinking, not like those clever writers. It's more day dreaming - helps the time pass.
Well, I must be really slow because it takes me between half a day and a full day to write a hub. The max I have ever done is 2 in one day!
when I don't need to research a topic for information I don't need much time. If a research for gathering information is needed it takes much time.
if all my supporting pics and artworks are available I can do it in one sitting... sometimes research makes writing one hub longer.. or if I am not busy with my other job,it won't take that long
Yeah, I'm a bit of a perfectionist when I do mine I like them to be original. So those hubs which are creative take about 5 hours and product hubs can take between 1-2 hours.
I tend to write my hubs in spurts. It is possible for me to write one in under half and hour, but then I get all OCD. I keep the hub unpublished, rereading it for things I might have missed, editing and checking my tags.
So one day I might make various hubs, thinking of a good title and keywords. I'll let it sit for a few days while I think about the content, then I'll sit down, write what I can, find an image and save again. Give it another day, reread it, edit it and if all looks good, publish it.
I think my record time for a hub is around 30 minutes. However, most of them take me at least a few hours to put together because I'm slow and censor myself way too much. I'm trying to get over the censor thing because then I'll be able to churn out way more hubs in a shorter period of time.
So far, the most hubs I've been able to create in a day is 2 and that was just the other day.
It varies greatly. My last hub took a 28 minutes. The ones with research take longer (as much as three or four days), and some of the drawing hubs take a week or more. I spent two and a half weeks on one (won't be doing that again soon), but it was fun.
It usually takes me at least two hours, but usually five or six hours, minimum. I think I am a pretty slow writer because I question myself a lot. And I find that getting pictures and videos, links and rss Feeds take forever, too.
A simple hub will take me at at least two hours. I'm constantly editing and trying out different phrases. Then I try to spellcheck.

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...

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...

On average, how long does it take you to write a single Hub?

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!

How long does it take you to write a hub?I am a new-ish Hubber. I take about 3-4 hours to write a hub - from idea formulation, research, writing, editing - from start to finish. Is that too long? Not long enough?
