I have never posted a 'HubChallenge' before, and indeed this is not really a challenge - merely a suggestion for those in need of inspiration : write a hub about the 8 (or 10) pieces of music most important to you, or with the most evocative memories, and explain why they are so important. The idea behind this serves three purposes:
1) It should be a relatively easy hub to write because it is all about personal experience (not much fact-checking required!) Therefore it is something anyone could do, even if you are suffering from writer's block.
2) It is a great way of introducing yourself to other hubbers. It tells them something about you, your likes and dislikes, and what affects you emotionally.
3) As some of the choices may be a bit obscure, it may also introduce some to music they are totally unfamiliar with.
It's an idea which comes from a recent hub I wrote in which I selected my 8 'Desert Island Discs'
That hub includes a lot of other details about the radio programme 'Desert Island Discs' , but the text about the 8 pieces of music will give an illustration of the kind of reminiscences and choices I am talking about. Just explain your choices, and what they mean to you. Of course if you're really stuck for inspiration - it doesn't have to be music. What about the most poignant films, most motivational books, or most significant role models in your life?
I have done a few music hubs. I liked writing them very much, but they have the lowest traffic of any of my hubs.
Hi Sherry. Sorry to hear that - I must admit my experience is slightly different. I'm not very deeply into music and only 5 of my 152 hubs to date are musical, and yet 2 of those are in my top 8 most read hubs. I've been thinking of trying to write some more. Maybe it depends on the music topic? - mine I think feature music which is quite well known, but not necessarily the subject of significant Internet or TV coverage. Cheers for commenting, Alun
Hi, Alun. I already wrote a hub similar to the prompt you are suggesting. My hub was called "Songs and Verses That Invade Your Mind" and is about the four songs that were special to me as a child or growing up and have always stuck in my mind. Not eight or ten as you suggested, though. This will be a good challenge or prompt for many.
Thank you John. I've just taken a very brief glance at your hub and I see that although there are only four songs, several of the titles and/or the performers resonate with me very strongly - very much my kind of music! Expect a comment on the hub in the near future!
I hope the theme I proposed gives someone who is struggling for inspiration an idea or two for a hub they can write. Alun

HP has always said do evergreen hubs. Politics is certainly not evergreen. it has a short "shelf-life" if it is about a current event. And since I would mostly write about U.S. politics, they might have...

I've seen this 30 day challenge thing and it sounds like a great idea, but how on earth do you think of so many things to write about? I thought it'd be interesting to see what kinds of things help people come up with...

Looks like another content sniper is at work, stealing our shizz from HubPages. This so called "music news" site has sniped at least four of my Hubs and it looks like there are many other pieces pinched from...

Oftentimes, I will start thinking about what I want to write about while running on the tread mill. After an hour of running, I pretty much know what I am going to write about. I composed it in my head. So when I return...
