I was pretty confident I could produce 100 hubs, and if I wasn't feeling the effects of burn out I still think I could do it. But right now, If I get to just 70 I'll be content (I'm at 51 now). I could quit all together and not feel bad, but I wanted to add as many as possible because I'm going to be going back to work again soon and just won't have the time.
So to those who are still in it, are you lowering your hub goal??
I can't do it. I have lost interest in writing and can't push myself. I thought I could, but I ended up taking summer classes and well, enjoying summer! I have only written 5 or 6 towards the challenge! lol. I have a bunch in development, but I"m going to write them in my own time, when I feel like it. Otherwise, mine would be forced. I think I would've done better during Winter Break, where I could be inside and cuddled up all day, writing.
You guys have done a fantastic job, thus far! Keep them coming!
I'll finish mine. I'm on 27 of 30. I have taken a good break. If I hadn't taken a break, I would have gotten crazy burnt out. I also would have run out of ideas. I have a few I'm working on, but probably won't publish just yet. If I had pushed a little harder and had more ideas, I would have been able to make 100 I think.. Oh well.. Next time.
My theory is that maybe there should be a tag here that you could attach to your posts to indicate that you're only joking.
Forgot to say. Do whatever you will behind my back. Just please, please, please... leave me alone. I wanna live a normal life on hp and I don't care about those very few people who are obsessed with their theories about me.
Mango you are good you really are but go mess with someone elses head, we are done. You are without doubt one piece of work but you are not as clever as you like to think you are. All you are is a pathetic attention seeker and I think people should just ignore you, from now on I am. I know you will leave some clever comment to this but it will be ignored.
Ummm, well, I spent like 10 minutes on reading it and comments - so what is not funny about it? You are a sock puppet most likely, and everybody wants to learn whose - I guess it's pretty legit interest. If you can't take it, you shouldn't have been THAT active
So you are JamaGenee then and I love your pic. Of course I am not Johnny Depp but that was my pic on the balcony. I find it strange though a lot appearing on here now, could you not comment before because you were logged on as Mango ?
I am in for the 100. I'm at 65 right now and I'm burnt right out. Today, I spent most of the day sleeping, which I haven't done in months. However, I don't know whether this is because of the challenge or because of the severe back pain I've been having. I have a feeling that my burn out is a part of everything. I should be able to finish this challenge though. I still have 12 more days left. I figure 3 hubs per day from here on in. I have had thoughts of giving up but I don't like to give up that easily. I'm a figther so I will continue for the time being anyway.
My original goal - before the Hub Challenge was announced - was to complete 50 hubs in May - and I'm pleased to say that I just completed it. I'm trying for another 50 in June. So I think I'll just take a few extra weeks.
I'm not going to make it to 100 - burnout hit fast trying to get 4 a day. But I need only 9 more to hit 200 hubs, which will make me very happy by itself, and 9 more after that to hit my secondary goal of 50 hubs in 30 days. And I do think I have a good chance of making that goal.
I am wondering that how many people are actually using this as a means to make a livelihood i.e writing hubs and making money. I am in for the challenge just because I do not love writing but I want to prove myself wrong and write 100 hubs and atleast get into that habit of writing of which I am sacred right now.
I don't think anyone is soley living off Hubpages income, but many consider it a great supplemental income. My next goal right now is to be pay my daughters daycare each month just with Hubpages income.
Don't know what to tell you about being scared.. Just do it. The more you do, the easier it gets.
I accepted the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. I've published 28. I also realized 35 hubs would put me at 100 hubs total, so I've modified my personal goal to include those 5 extra. So, I have about 11 days to complete 7 hubs. No problem!
I've said this in a few other places, but I'll repeat myself here. This challenge has been very good for me. I think the hubs I've created during this challenge are some of my best hubs to date. I have increased my fan base and my daily pageviews have doubled. It took me 6 months to get my first 10,000 page views and I've almost got my second 10,000 in two months.
This translating into more Adsense & Amazon dollars would be great, but even if it doesn't, then I'll still have gained so much by writing.
Writing really is one of those things (like most) where practice really does help. You can't become a great writer unless you write even when you think you're not a writer. Just write and write and write. Your style and your voice will begin to come out and you'll find your groove.
I don't think I'll make 30-- and never did think that. My personal goal was to get to 15, which would put me at a total of 100. I've done 13 so far. As far as quality-- I'd say many are better than my personal average, a few not quite as good, but overall I think I'm improving. Maybe I'll get to 20.
I set my mark on the 30 hubs in 30 days. I have done 22 so far and hope to complete the other 8. I wanted to test myself, and almost stopped the challenge when I felt I was not doing my best. Then I decided to do my best and see if I could finish, but not beat myself up if I didn't. I will find out one way or the other.
I have 17 or so (I lost count and too lazy to check right now) out of a goal of 30. A little disappointed, but I had things come up. However, it's gotten me a little more focused (the hubchallenge) so I'm grateful for that. I'm going to see what I can do before it's done.
I failed miserable. I did 25 out of 100. That is okay though. I may have failed but I will continue on my own little challenge and try to write a total of 200 hubs within the next few months. Still, with the amount I had written, there is an improvement on my adsense.
Nope, you're not seeing things, this is in fact a new forum that will be hosting the new, ongoing 30 Hubs in 30 Days HubChallengers who are willing to take on the challenge. Later this week me and the rest of the...
I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating...
I write 5 hubs a day. 2 of them are quality hubs that I enjoy writing and put my most effort to, the rest are there to share some kind of information I think is interesting. But these are not as good and I actually...
So I had our designer whip up a little something for those of you who don't really feel like doing this HubChallenge after all of the pain and suffering that you went through during the last epic 100 Hubs in 30 Days...
