Thank you. This just confirms what I was thinking. Do you see any difference in how well your Hub does in regards to the amount of time you spend on it?
Not really. Some catch on, some don't. I gave up trying to figure out what works and what doesn't a long time ago. I write stuff, and if it takes off, great. If not, I write more stuff and try again.
Wow! Thanks for such a thorough and interesting answer. I'm not sure that I want to do that research for a Hub, though. Maybe for a book (or ten books in a saga), but not for a Hub.
I'll look out for your books as I'm avid fan of history.
The research for HUNDING'S SAGA was used also on the books. They are cross-referenced in places and the links will gradually strengthen as either saga goes on...
I hadn't thought of revisiting a hub once it's published. Thanks for the tip.
I'm not so much annoyed as feeling like I'm researching and finding so many wonderful bits of information that I'll craft into an article only to see pennies. But I love to write so that's the opposite of the annoyance.
Don't begrudge Hub-pages the time invested in research - it'll come in use for your own work, as I've found.
This is a very thorough explanation of what I usually do. I have to admit, there are times I am not as thorough and the hub is not very good. Unless, it is in my area of competence or have substantial knowledge in it.
Thanks for such a great and honest answer. I agree about the editing. It just seems that I spend so much time researching and writing and revising that I never publish.
