    I need a group challenge. Anyone interested?

      What kind of a challenge?

      I'd like to know what kind of challenge too. I need one.

      What is our first topic?

    That's my big problem. I need a push to ramp up hub writing, but doing a 30/30 seems so lonely.

    I tried to search the forums for any writing challenge by a group but can't find one.

    How does one go about a group challenge, is it that we agree on topics each week, then write a certain number of hubs and crosslink?

    Let's say three per week, or two.

    Anyone not meeting the standards departs the group.

    I was thinking of something like the weekly inspiration topics.
    We can rotate moderators. Each week the appointed person asks a question and we all write a minimum of two hubs in response.

    How does that sound?

      Do you mean a challenge like who can write the most Hubs in a certain length of time? Or maybe who can get a certain photo or video of something/someone?

      We used to have something similar to that.  It was called the HubMob, and I think it was once a month, or maybe once a week.  Either way, we were given a topic, chosen by someone who volunteered to help with the program.  We had to write Hubs in response to a question.  We were able to post links to the hubs on that specific HubMob thread, and it was a lot of fun!  It kind of ran out of steam, and I think that's why they stopped doing it.  You could write as many Hubs as you wanted, and no one was excluded, or kicked out.  You wrote if you wanted, and didn't if you were unfamiliar with the topic that was being covered.

        I like the idea of writing on a question or topic excluding no one. After all the challenge is for us all to improve our writing.  Count me interested!

    I think someone just needs to start one on the forums. I like having a topic for the week and write as many or as little as you like.

    I love this idea! Count me in! We should rotate who gets to choose the topic. Who wants to go first?

    "Hidden Treasure"  is the first topic.   Join in and be sure to use the quoted subject "Hidden Treasure" somewhere in your hub.  Obviously it cannot be the title!

    We can link some of our hubs as they are completed.   I wrote my hub on this topic last night.  Our purpose is just to encourage More writing production.

      Our first topic:   "Hidden Treasure"  If you publish a hub be sure to add the words "Hidden Treasure" somewhere in your hub.  Let us know at this forum link so that we can read it.  Some of us may link hubs too.

    Here is your challenge. Post an amazing hub, highly desirous by googlers. Preferably it will be a huge money maker, over 1200 words and the pics will be properly accredited. Here's the challenge: If you finish first, you have to put my name on it, and if I finish first, I will give you authorship of the one Im writing. Ok, go!

      The Examiner-1posted 3 years ago in reply to this

      I accept, although I do not know if it will be a money maker. I can only hope. By the way, do I put your name in before or after it makes money? lol

        Just wait and see... if it gets positive reviews, go ahead and throw my name on there... and if it's a huge money maker, Ill just copy and paste it onto my page. I think we've got a great plan here.

    I'm a bit nervous to join another challenge. I did 30 Stellar hubs in 60 days, I was sick for 1/2 of that time, and it was a bit stressful. Over mid-way through, I was frustrated because I was only one busting my sick butt kicking out these hubs, so I posted a message asking if anyone was still in, and guess what? No one answered. Ever. So, I guess I was the only one laying in bed sick for weeks stressing about writing Stellar hubs, because they all dropped out. It was just a disappointing experience. It was my first contest ever; it was a bit stressful, especially being sick, and I was working really hard to complete it. Anyway, that's my little rant on my hesitation to join another challenge. I keep hearing how much they can help you; I'm just nervous for a repeat experience. I don't know.

      Still at the end, you are the one with all the stellar hubs... which is what you would have had had the rest still participated, so you didn't really lose anything right? Good for you though for getting it done... even while sick.

    Thank you. Yes, I was proud that I was able to do that, being that I still feel very new to all of this. I guess I just thought hub challenges were supposed to help you get extra promotion, because all of the other participants would be reading your hubs. Oh well. lol. I guess my Google readers will read them. smile

      This is an informal challenge sort of thing.  This isn't being run by HP staff.  It's very "no-pressure".

    starstreamposted 3 years ago

    Is there anyone participating in this hub challenge ?  I'd like to read your hub if you published one on the subject of " hidden treasure".   Please reply here at this forum.  Also, I'd like someone to choose a new topic for this week.
