    Anything between an hour and six hours, depending on how many times my flash plug in takes unexpected leave, whether I can find the information I want or, whether my brain is working or taken leave, and lastly, whether the writing comes easily or not.

      Honestly, I can do a hub in 30 minutes, but it will go up to upwards of an hour or more. The problem I have is starting new hubs. I can go days writing hubs, then go a bit blank.

      If I started doing amazon sales hubs, it would probably take me longer. ( a lot)

      I can write an rough draft in 30-40 minutes but to clean it up, editing, adding proper modules and searching right amazon and you tube videos can take up 3-6 hours. So far my hubs are averaging about 2.7 hours.

      I almost write an rough draft in 20-30 minutes and published it. It's a fun duraing when I thinking of my hub to express my mood in that moment. I realize that the hub is the way to release the pressure from the daily work and the bad mood from anything else. IMO, the mordern sociaty need a methods to release the pressure from anywhere. Otherwise, we might becoming a idiot because we doing our job every day and the same thing in the daily work is too boring for us to spent the time. You guys think that?Actually, I've got no idea that the people which is really rich and still work hard everyday. What for? For the vanity or the need they really want the cater for? That's so oddsome. I've got a friend who is the engineer in a biggest laptop limited. He work up late to 11-12pm. He have the vocation to spend with her lovely girlfriend but he didn't. Of course, the girl left her and got married last month. He keep doing that behavior day after day. He just the crazy guy aound my friends.

    I am working on my 4th hub so it takes me quite a while, a few hours I would say. I understand from what I've been reading online that once you've got a lot more experience writing hubs that it will take you less time.

    I'm really lazy and procrastinate a lot so it takes me a few days to a couple weeks to finish and publish a hub.

    Here's habee's thread from 3 days ago on this topic for more perspectives:

    For me its a couple of days.

    First day i hunt for my title and keywords
    Secure the title and then add a few ideas to the first text box and save it.

    Second day is research and deciding the layout for the hub.

    By the third day it has usually got feedback from hubpages and how they value the topic by how much it has jumped from its 50 starting score. If it goes to 60 then I know its a good hub topic to follow through with.

    Fourth day is writing the hub

    Fifth day is pictures and video.

    6th day is tweaks and typos. The publish

    Day 7 - thinking of new topics and keyword tool research.

    You know what...this just inspired a hub on how to strategise your hubbing.
    ........Thanks Sophia A.

    depends on the topic, sometimes I can finish one in 30 minutes, but there hubs that can take me days to finish... Researching and supporting photos prolong the process. sometimes I make my own illustration thru MS paint so hubbing is can take time

    It depends on what the hub is about. If I'm writing a product review I can do that in 30-40 minutes. However, I don't write a lot of those. I only have around 18-20 sales hubs out of 100. If I'm writing science or history it takes anywhere from a few hours to a day or so. One hub took me almost a week, but I worked on others at the same time. I usually have 3-4 hubs going at once. I publish at least one a day--or at least try! I've had times where I've published two or three in one day!

    I think we all work at different speeds! One person might can do a sports hub in an hour when it would take another person days to write because they're not familiar with the subject!

    I usually stick to what I know--history or science!

      Thanks, everybody. it gives me an idea of whether I'm spending too much time on doing my hubs, and I think I may be!

        It takes however long it takes.  Some of us are fast and some are slow.  Some of us do tons of research, and some do not.  Some of us take a while to organize info, even if it's a topic we know very well.  For some of us it takes a while to supplement hubs with photos and videos. 

        I can't imagine a circumstance where I could write a hub in 2 hours, much less to do a 30-minute hub.  That's just not me.  While I find it interesting information, it doesn't really matter to me how long it takes someone else to write a hub.  It doesn't relate to me.

          It takes a long time for me to write a Hub because I do entirely too much research. I can write one really fast if it is something I already know a lot about.

            I'm slow on those too!  Maybe the stuff know a lot about, I really know a lot about.  Yeah, I'll stick with that story!
