What finally convinced you to do a 30/30 challenge or any other challenge on HubPages?


For the past two years I have considered doing one of these challenges to improve earnings and keep honing my creative-type writing (I consider anything outside my academic writing "creative"!). But I would hate not meeting the goal of 30 in 30 or people realizing I am procrastinating from my dissertation by doing more creative writing.

    I appreciate this advice coming from such an avid hubber. I do like your point that you do not have to complete the challenge. But I am a Type A personality, so if I start I have to finish in some way. The forums for ideas is a great tip. Thanks!

    tsmog, I love the humor embedded, though overt, in your answer. You really have this 30/30 thing all planned out. I think we might have to make a pact to do this together next month: nothing like the buddy system. This is the push I need! You in?

    Agreed. I kept thinking, "If I plan hard enough it will work." But now I am just jumping in and will figure it out. After all, "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry." So I am making the time happen. All else will follow! Join us in June.

    That's my problem too especially I have a 75 mile commute each way to work.. I may have time, maybe later on in the year like the fall and winter

    You have more guts than me! I am like the girl who wants to jump in the ropes for double-dutch but cannot seem to find the right time to jump in. But Dr. Haddox just pushed me in :)

    Well Dr. Haddox, it is a date! Thanks for the complements :) June is busy, but I can come up with many reasons that every month is busy. So, I guess I will celebrate my birthday 6/8 in hub-style. I am glad you are inspired. All in my friend!!!

    I am hoping that if I push myself to publish more that I will have this end result. Plus I always feel a little better after seeing "Another hub has been published."

    Do look into the challenge. Right now Dr. Haddox and myself are going to do it in June. I'm still waiting to hear back from tsmog about June.

    But at least you gave it a try. That is more than I can say for now.
