Ok, so I have this idea. It may flop horribly, but that's fine too, I'm bored so, whatever. So, I've seen the 30 day challenge before, 1 hub every day for 30 days. I have not the attention span for that. However, as a drinker, a bored person, and a fast typist, I might go for 1 hub every thirty minutes for... uh... thirty minutes.
Anyone care to bust out an extemporaneous hub with me?
It's 7:02 by my clock (the one that counts if this happens.) I'm going to wait until 7:22 to do anything, including even click "start a new hub." If anyone signs on before then, we can all wait. I'll say GO in here.
If no one signs on, well, then I'll be watching forums and drinking beer for the next 20 minutes before typing my idea up and spending almost no time editing till after I hit "publish."
hee hee what a novel idea. i love it! i am working on a hub right now, but when i am ready to do my extemporaneous one, i shall clock in in this thread, write my hub, then clock in again when i am done. what a cool challenge
It was fun. I think I will do it again at some point. I have tons of hub idea I have thought about and sort of "outlined" in a paragraph or so. Literally a years worth, like 40 hub ideas. This will help me crank out a draft that I will then be compelled to clean up.
I imagine HP will hate it, because there will be clunky hubs up for a day or two, but, well, unless they crush the spirit, which I doubt they will, it's probably worth it. Long as they are "complete" should be good.
Yeah, that's the deadline to win the title of Super Cool Awesome Speed Hubber. But, worst case scenario, you get a hub in forty-five minutes or an hour and ... you have a new hub. Hardly a losing scenario.
As many as you can drink, but I suggest you get a bunch and keep them near your puter so you don't lose time running to the fridge. (That's my plan. I think this will be a three beer hub... at least that's my expectation).
Dude, yours is great. Will take you ten minutes to go fix the grammar stuff that we all knew was going to happen. I still ahven't checked mine. You got good pics and stuff; both of you did. I have to go get some. I was on the 28 minute mark when I got mine, so I literally grabbed the first Idiocracy vid I saw I have no clue what's on it. lol
Thanks for playing. (I only drank one and a half of mine too... maybe we coudl use this idea as a way to help people slow down their drinking? LOL)
The photos were the easy part. They are all mine so it was easy to download them. The text wasn't too hard to write as I've published and sold travel articles about my favorite vacation spot before. Now to edit the hub. But not tonight!
Thank you. It was on my topic list so I've been meaning to do it for a while, this just gave me the courage to actually do it.
And this was FUN. It was such a thrill to look for a video and of course to get the pics and to write content in such a short amount of time (Thank you amazon for having pictures ready). And of course get that edited price/shipping pic done in time. Especially since my hub glitched 3 times (one time it wouldn't add the picture, another time it would keep going back to the top, and one time it just didn't do anything).
Of course I'll need to edit it 'cuz I totally forgot to make a section for the DS version of the game. And I also think Amazon has the game as a download (I featured the cdrom version).
I'm with you Rochelle. I spend 1 to 3 days on hubs. I did 28 Helpful Health hubs in 28 days for the contest, and now seem to be taking a break. I should have done the HubMob roundup hub tonight, but just couldn't read or rearch anything else! I did some polish and finish work on a couple contest hubs tonight.
I hear ya Randy. Sometimes it takes me 30-60 minutes to get my brain in the zone. And 30-60 min to enter a hub. To do a quick, no research, minumal capsules, off the cuff piece... I think it'd take 30-60 min to think of what to write on!
I was able to pick a topic in the 20 minutes before the challenge started. Once you pick a topic and think out what you're gonna do, it's not that hard to actually go and make a decent hub in 30 minutes.
Totally correct them. I'm going to fix mine this weekend. It needs pictures and needs to be broken into more text capsules. But, it's still technically done. No worries. This is just a way to make people write one.
Ok, so a few weeks ago I was drinking on a Friday night (like every other night) and decided to have a 30 minute hub writing contest. U know, they have 30 hubs in 30 days, so I figured why not 1 hub in 30...
