How long does it take you to write a hub?
I think this question will really open some eyes, for some. On average I spend about 30-35 minutes writing a hub, though it can sometimes be longer, sometimes as short as 15 minutes. A rare occasion will require a large amount of research, which can cause the production itinerary to spread into hours.
I generally write them over the course of 2 days, especially if I'm taking my own pictures.
The hubs I have wrote (which is only 6) took me a couple hours each. That is including pictures. I try to use my own pictures so it helps to know what picture I have and saves time finding pictures.
Because I write so much and so often, and because I have learned to make use of "mental marination" I can pump them out in about 15 mins. I usually compose them in a word document, with subtitles, and have them ready to go before I begin. The time I spend on the actual hub is mainly formatting, and adding in other visual content/links.
I spend between 2 - 4 hours on most hubs, maybe longer depending on the subject. In one case, a hub slowly evolved over the course of a week. But I've never wrote one in 30 minutes... wow.
It all depends on the subject matter and how much research you need to do. I can write an article in as little as 15 minutes, but it takes much longer to find the appropriate images, videos and books to go along with the article.
Writing the article is just one phase of the process. There is proofreading, editing, and a lot that has to be done.
It is not good to focus so much on the time involved. Rather focus on what it takes to get that article just the way you want your information received by others.
When you think you have finished an article, remember this: "You haven't!"
I think, on average, it takes me four hours-- once I get the idea. On stuff that's more opinion than anything else, much less, but with research it could take me six hours or more start-to-finish. I also write offline and layout all the text there. I can spend over an hour or more looking for images, summarizing, tagging and proof-reading. I'm getting more stream-lined as I find my hub page rhythm but sometimes I think I overthink-- except when I think "let's see... 8 hours for a nickel? That's..." not a thought I ever finish.
The vast majority of my hubs are meticulously planned. I create a sourcing document for larger hubs, and conduct some research via that. This document helps me tremendously when I'm ready to write.
It depends on the subject, my knowledge of the subject, if research is needed, and putting it all together (my limited time).
Sometimes I can do a hub in a day... but other times it will take a few days. I do a lot of hubs on science, but that is my degree, therefore those come much easier for me.
Sometimes I will start a series of hubs and work on all of them over several days then publish them one by one.
It seems with me working a full-time salaried job, I can usually pop out at least 2 hubs a week.
well it takes minimum 2 hours for me for any article because it needs more research. And also keyword rersearch to work best for hub. It never ends before 2 hours.

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.
