My First 50 Hubs

My Hub Journal Part I

After almost seven months here in HubPages, I have finally reached the-almost 100 hubs. In fact, this is my 99th hub.

Listed below, by categories, are 50 of my hubs (with short descriptions) that I have written in these past seven months. I wanted to compile these hubs in one or two general hubs that will be like a journal for me. In the future, I hope to summarize my next 100 hubs in another hub journal.

10 Ways to Cook Goat Meat - Don't give me that look. Goat meat is actually delicious. So why not try these 10 ways to cook goat meat?

Income and Finance

10 Ways to Earn Passive Income - Here I describe the 10 ways one can earn passive income. Just a bit of caveat though, these ways do not mean that one can sit back and relax and watch the money roll in. You still have to work your b@tt off before you can earn these passive income.

@Money Glitch, you're welcome. I've been thinking of writing this since my 50th hub but figured I still have several ideas on my head. When I am at a loss of what to write, I thought it was time to write this :). Thanks.
