    I am new here but am challenging myself to write 7 hubs in 7 days on 7 different topics. I am hoping to broaden my writing skills, keep things interesting and force myself to write out of my comfort zone.

    Anyone wish to join me??

      Hi Christine,
      I'll take you up on that challenge. I've been thinking about doing a challenge for a while, but something always held me back. I think I just have to go for it. It'll be fun. Writing about different topics will keep it interesting. When do you want to start? After the holiday weekend?

        Hi Teachable.

        I actually started yesterday but you can start at any time.  I might go for 10/10/10 if I make the 7/7/7.   smile  I posted two recipes yesterday and wrote a third hub that I need to proof read today before posting. I tend to over think things and don't like to publish until it is just so. I am hoping the challenge will help me get a handle doing them and quickly moving on.

        Good Luck!
        Christine

          I just finished a hub last night on separation anxiety. So, I'll just say I started last night. Ha-Ha. Sounds like you are off to a good start. I'll have to catch up. Thanks for the motivation. Should we post our 7 in 7 hubs here?

            LOL. Sure, we can motivate each other to finish.

              Christine,
              Well, here's my 1in 7 on child development. Hope it's okay I'm posting it here.

                Ok, I squeaked in just before midnight. smile  I had one done and was ready to post it then learned a valuable lesson....you don't post gardening hubs at the END of the summer!!  So I moved on to upcoming holidays, which lead to Thanksgiving, which led to the idea for a centerpiece. I am so not the crafty type so was surprised this popped into my head. I will have to try it with my kids so I can add a picture!

                  It sounds like my evening. First I thought about writing a hub about how to do a kid-friendly craft. I even took pics, but then I tossed the idea. Then I thought about writing about my pets, but I wasn't inspired. I started thinking about cooking recipes, housecleaning tips, poems, kid stories...this went on for a while. What did I end up writing on; a makeup review. Done them before. Blah!  I promised myself I'll be more creative next time. Oh well...
                  Can't wait to read your hub. I'll do it now.

                I know I'm a month out of the loop, but I just read your hub on preschool separation anxiety & left a comment for you.

    Current thinking seems to be that a subdomain such as ours will do better if it concentrates on a particular niche.

    Not sure if it is actually true - many hubbers (including myself) write on a wide range of topics.   Something to think about, though, as you immediately spread topics all over your new subdomain.

    1. TeachableMoments profile image84
      TeachableMomentsposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Wilderness,
      Thanks for the suggestion. Well, I think I'll try writing 7 hubs on different topics just to build my creativity. Maybe writing something completely new will lead to new sources of inspiration. I appreciate the heads-up though.

      Christine Mirandaposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Hi Wilderness.
      I've read the "pick a niche and write it to death" suggestion on here.  The only problem is it may be the death of me!! Lol. It's extremely boring. I write topic specific copy for clients all day long so it is nice to write something just because. Plus the two recipe hubs I did yesterday resulted in my writing two other articles today on topics that came to me while I was doing them. It should be interesting if nothing else.

    Unless Paul Edmondson has updated his findings. He has stated a few times that subdomains with lots of different topics do just fine. It doesn't seem to be one of the determinants of success.

    Good for you! I'm all for multiple topics but remember one thing. If you get followers off of those hubs then you will want to write more on those topics later to keep people who follow you reading. I write on several different topics and I have to basiclly take turns on which topic I will post about. Followers can be quite helpful while getting google traffic established. Good Luck!

    Hello everyone! Can I join too? I'm a new come back. Yesterday was my first day after been gone for two years. I was able to publish one hub yesterday and one today. I guess I'm up for the 7 hubs in 7 days challenge starting tomorrow. smile

    I would prefer to write 7 hubs on the same niche or about something that you know very well.

      I think this is true. Specialisation is most effective way to add value as a general rule.

        Just found this great hub from SMCopywrite.  I think she "gets" the reason behind this challenge. In the scheme of things I don't think writing 7 hubs out of your niche will end your hub writing/money generating career. smile   For me it has been about writing outside my comfort zone. I will be posting a hub of what I've learned, the positives and negatives of it all, when I am done with the challenge.

      Wow, go Christine!! I have some reading to do. Very interested in reading your latest hub. My family has suffered the effects of suicide. One tried, one succeeded. Glad you're bringing more awareness to the topic. Think I'll have to gear up for that one. Great job!!!

          Yes 5 out of 7. I agree, I have jotted down at least 10 titles in my niche that have come to me while doing this challenge.  Sort of re energized me.

          OK. My last two. smile

          I was out of town Sunday & Monday at a family members house on a lake. No internet access. I actually wrote the "What to do before you write your first hub" on my Blackberry on the 3 hr ride there. lol.

          So this challenge was fun. I agree 30 in 30 would be tough. I will have to read everyone's hubs tomo.

    My schedule is tight and I don't want to compromise the quality of my articles just to finish the race. I started my fifth last night but I don't think it's done already. Good job to all of Teachable and Christine! smile

    I too am challenging myself to write 7 hubs in 7 days. However I want to stick to marketing since my aim is to provide content which will add value. For me to do that I need to be really familiar with that topic. I will write outside my comfort zone once I have accomplished this.
