    I am signing myself up for the 30day challenge, decided lunchtime today that I can't spend all my time playing in the forums I need to get publishing, so here I am back in the forums..lol

    Internet has been up and down (mostly down) all day so only just back on line at nearly 10pm, going to do my first hub of 30..

    Wish me luck and kick my ass if you don't see hubs on a regular basis..

        If those cheerleaders were here with me now I would get lots of inspiration, however I would not write any hubs... thanks blonde..

      With what I know about food I could barely fill the summary text, as to food here.... wow... For a country considered by most to be anti west, every corner has a McDonalds or a KFC!!

    2 more hubs done, now up to 4... 26 to go, please go have a look at my new hubs and make lots of lovely comments, promise to return the favour...

    Have been having problems with "suggested link" function (see my thread in Help), the suggested links get moved 2 characters to the right for some reason! Plus somehow a adsense add was activated!!

    I published a hub about 3 hours or so ago and listed it on the hubchalleng hubs thread about 2 hours after, by that time it had already been indexed by google and I had google views!! Feeling happy with what I am doing... just going to work on the next so that I make it to six before sleeping tonight..

    Finished my sixth hub last night.... Weekend here now so have a chance to do some more hubs, trouble is my wife has other plans for me!!!!!! She wants me to take her shopping for food, get my hair cut, swimming at the beach,....... I guess this is going to be a hard task keeping her happy and completing this challenge,

    Anyway; go to my profile and have a look at my latest hubs..

      Just bring a notepad with you on your outing so you can jot down ideas and stuff.

    Number seven done... being nagged about grocery shopping, will have to go soon... will post the link in the hubchallenge thread...

    Don't want to do a hub on shopping $10Mark.. thanks for suggestion, but if you walk around with a pen and paper in your hands you will probably be arrested as the police will think you are giving your phone number to women!!!!! The thought police are alive and well in Saudi Arabia.. lol

      Impressive output!  I have looked at two of them, and although it's not my subject - they are very well laid out, nicely written and very informative.  (Personally I like your hubs on Trumpton et al - because they are more my thing!)

        Thanks precious, I like them too... I will do other similar stuff eventually but I have a lot of "business" stuff that I am churning out at the moment...

    Middle of Friday, must try to get a couple of hubs done today to make sure that I keep on track...

  13. LeanMan profile image82
    LeanManposted 6 years ago

    Feels like I am slowing down... Been on a business trip for 2 days so little time to myself, have my wife's birthday today, family dinner tomorrow then party Thursday... I can see very little hub production for next few days.... But views going up nicely....

    I have managed the impossible, achieved three hubs today, please have a look and give me some constructive comments..

    The links are posted in the "hubchallenge hub links" thread or you can just follow my profile link..

    That is now 12 of my 30 done, 18 to go... Easy!!! lol

    Thirteen days in and half way through my challenge, number 15 published earlier today.. STUPID...

    Not quite the same as some of my other business hubs, but you have to try something new at times, would love to here people's opinion... lol

  17. LeanMan profile image82
    LeanManposted 6 years ago

    22 days done, hardly had time to even check here for last week so not progressed beyond 15 new hubs... 8 days to do the next 15...

      I thought I hadn't received any emails to say that you had been posting.  Best of luck with the rest of the challenge.  I'm sure that you will do it.

    LeanManposted 6 years ago

    Only managed to do one hub tonight, so now have 11 to complete before the end of the week... Notes done for a couple of other so I hope 2 or 3 tomorrow...

    Just published another to take me to 20... Have a couple more prepared in word to try and publish tonight if my wife does not make demands of me... lol

  23. LeanMan profile image82
    LeanManposted 6 years ago

    Published three tonight, have done the text capsules for another 2 so just might make my 30 before the end of the 30 days.. If I work hard on it...

    Trouble is I can't do short hubs... all over 1000 words..

    Please have a look at my latest hubs and leave me a comment..

    After midnight here, wife demanding I join her in the bed for something??

    Thanks and goodnight...

    Managed to do 4 hubs today, that brings me to 28 total.. But today is day 30 so I am 2 short of my challenge..

    But I am still happy, I have broken the back of what I wanted to do.. Now I need to keep publishing each and every week..

    Please have a look at my latest hubs if you have time and give me some feedback..

    I failed my challenge by 2 hubs.. but I lost 10 days in the middle of my challenge because of a major audit that took me around the country babysitting the auditor and the like..

    Have to do some penance - going to do a half challenge just to make up for the missing 2- 15 in 15 days or less - aiming for this weekend if I can...
