What is the most difficult part of writing a hub for you?
Formatting, and sometimes finding a good picture. I don't know why, I know this is supposed to be relatively simple, but for some reason it's the only part of the process that strikes me as tedious. I set all my ads by hand, too, and even that isn't as tedious to me as simply setting headings, italics, bold here or there, etc.
Choosing what category my hubs are best placed in. Sometimes the topic crosses or spreads into multiple placements and other times the categories offered just don't adequately reflect my topic.
I think the hardest part for me is finding a balance between informative, highly searched hubs, versus fun hubs that I just enjoy writing. I have plenty of fun things I'd like to write but, in the end, they really won't help me get noticed or earn money. At the same time, however, I only have so much information in my head and after a stream of informative hubs, it's easy to lose the zest for it.
The worst part for me is, having a great idea and then losing that idea. Want to know the term for that? Writers Block! lol
Well, for me it is the set up. Since I write from my own life experiences, even though it is written in short story form.
Most of them are of a funny nature, or even the philosophy orientated hubs are mostly true life also. This is a style that takes a lot of set up in order to come out right. All the conversations have to be remembered, the places and the things done there need to be right.
The hardest part is keeping the story flowing, without over lapping into another story that hasn't been written yet. This is my biggest problem, with so many different episodes, and the same character's. Picking the story out from the background is the task at hand.

Would you rather spend a week on an amazing hub or have very informative hubs and produce 3 a week?

What style of hubs do you like best?Do you like storytelling, funny hubs, more informative lecturing kind of hubs, or personal opinions, accounts of personal experience? What does hubber-friendly content mean to you?

Writing Your Hubs - What's the most difficult part?I tend to find getting a good ending - without waffling on - is sometimes much harder than actually beginning a hub.

What type of hubs do you enjoy reading the most?Topics are so difficult to pick when your brain is overflowing with ideas. What types of ideas should be left in the trash can and which ones should be used? What do you enjoy reading?

We all want hubpages to be full of hubs that are informative, containing facts, well-researched observations, or personal insights in various areas. Yet some of the most popular hubs are, frankly, JUNK, IMHO. Here's one, again, IMHO:http://hubpages.com/hub/iPhone-5-ReviewSince iPhone 5 doesn't...
