I really tried to do the 30 in 30, folks... Managed to publish 18 in 30. I feel good about that, I really do. My earnings have increased, as well as my traffic. In fact, I've sold 31 Amazon products in 30 days and have over 10,000 total views now!
I blame my children completely for my inability to finish. I had a hard time entertaining them all day and trying to write. So, once they go back to school after Labor Day, I will reenter the challenge.
Congratulations to all who succeeded. I've read some fantastic hubs from the challenge. Thanks to all the HubChallenge leaders, too. Good luck to everyone beginning the challenge.
With 31 Amazon products sold and 10,000 total views (as well as Adsense earnings, I would guess), you really have every reason to feel good! Congratulations wordscribe!
W/scribe - kudos. As you say, you've got a brood running round and for sure, they'll take a fair bit of your time up! And you've hardly failed - all those sales?!
I need to use amazon methinks.
Wordscribe41. quality counts well done. This does not ned to be McDonald's...
If it helps, you made it 18 hubs further along then I did. Just the thought of signing up for 30 hubs in a month freaks me out a little. Congrats on the improved profile. You can hardly call that failure!
I did 18 as well. Finished it the last time, but life just got in the way this time. But in the end, I am happy with the work I did and saw an increase in traffic and revenue. Be happy with what you have accomplished.
And there is always next time.
lol 18 was as far as I got too. But like you, my traffic increased and I had affiliate sales so there was an upside.
Just time to start again....
Well done wordscribe - and there is really nothing to concede. When I undertook the first 30 in 30 challenge, I managed 18 or 19 hubs (I forget)...but it certainly made a difference in my page views and overall scores. As well it was really good practice in writing under pressure - hadn't done that since college.
The second time, I was better organized and tried to read all the great tips in the forums from the other challengers and the challenge team.
You did great this time, and you'll do even better next time around!
Thanks, everyone. I really did learn a lot as well. I'm going to tweak my approach a bit next time. I certainly don't feel defeated, just motivated to up the ante next time. It was a lot of fun. I'll be starting again after Labor Day. Thanks for the support all!
Flamin kids! I recommend a large bird cage for the smaller ones, unless they are twins in which case you will need a gorilla cage! I have not tried the 30/30 or any of the other challenges yet, as I only write when I find something I want to write about and apparently that isn't much.
My thought was actually a huge rodent ball. But, darn it if they're not quite big enough, Earnest. Could be my next invention, I tell you!
Wow, I'm really impressed with the 18. And the sales. I'm new to hubbing and have only written a handful; it required a lot of thought, time, investigation, and work to pull my few together. 30 in 30 days really is a challenge.
The kids...distracting, yes, but as I recalled when I had a couple of kids and a dog around, it would sure give you something to write about!
The gorilla cage thing made me laugh like a Santa. I remember times with my two stepsons when I could've used one.
31 products sold on Amazon is a fantastic result! I haven't sold 31 products to date...I think I've sold about a dozen and haven't reached payout yet with them.
I think most of you now see what challenging yourself can do for you, whether it's 10 hubs, 20 hubs or 30 hubs. Each hub is a success. The exponential factor is incredible as you write more of them. The momentum itself is motivating. Throw in a little extra revenue and it's all good.
Thanks, KCC, emievil, paradise, and darkside. I am feeling like it's a success. I'm pretty pumped about my earnings. I'm getting ready to do another 30 in 30... I'm excited, motivated, and have a good approach this time. Thanks for all the encouragement.

When the March Q&A Contest was announced and there was mention of daily drawings for hubs, I had the idea that it was the perfect time to try out the HubChallenge with the added bonus of using Questions to inspire...

Yep, I'm going to be writing 100 Hubs in 30 days starting next Monday, May 11th. This might sound a little crazy (because it is), but I promise that I have a somewhat logical reason for doing it.So here's the story --...

I'll start off and admit that I didn't - I was on the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge and only made 17 hubs, which is pathetic I know.Those who completed - very well done. Do you want to give the rest of us any tips on how...

OMG! It's 3:30 in the morning here in Toronto. I just finished my 30th hub on the 30th day. Yippee!!! It was tough going towards the end. I was having writer's block... couldn't concentrate......
