Josh I am in and have already created my hublog. Though it is not complete as I am still at work, but did not wanted to miss out. I will complete it soon by mentioning my goals and motivation for this challenge. And I am so so happy, by the return of the 60 day challenge. It would be amazing this time!!
I have made the hublog by answering your question. May be it will take time to show up. Just need to add my goals and I will have my log ready. Also, I am thinking on making two hublogs, like Susana did in the last challenge but again it may disturb the organization process as everyone will have two logs. Or can we just combine the progress log and summary log into one.
Edit:Changes in the promotion phase, wow, sounds good..Can't wait to get started!!
I saw your log, very, very cool! I get to see an immediate result before I head to bed.
I can react to the summary/process issue ..we are not quite there yet
Just concerned with building the team at this point -
I have better ways of organizing in mind .. I promise, Ive had two months to reflect.
..but, must sleep - 3am here - Im back on Daddy duty at 8am - last time I was able to stay up all night when I wanted to ..but I also went to California for a week and another week in NYC so maybe it will balance out.
There are no rules for topics and you are free to write on any topic you want. Though there would be some general guidelines like writing only in 3-10 broad categories and the like. But that was during the first 60 day challenge. Though I am sure the rules would be similar but it would be better if we hear it directly from Sunforged.
And you can assume the challenge has started, I mean not the actual 60dc but still it is the team building phase. And the first 30 hubber to participate will continue this journey.
Please consider me for inclusion in the 60DC. Just need some pointers as to where best to start pre-challenge tasks and to get up to speed on what will be expected of me. I have undertaken some promotional activities for my own hubs but as I am only 4 months in I would welcome all suggestions for collaborative promotional efforts.
Please also let me know if there is any way I can be of assistance in establishing the foundations of this new 60DC. I live in the UK so could possibly extend the working day for the challenge team to 24/7 especially if collaborative tasks are undertaken through Google Docs. I have also written hubs on RSS feed creation and RSS feed submission the contents of which could be extended to show how collaborative RSS feeds could be generated using tags (if this has not already been covered elsewhere).
Count me in as well. Here are my questions though: What happens if I'm out of town for a few days? Can I write ahead and/or make up hubs so that the final count is 30? And is there a time or place that I need to make an official entry? (I don't want to miss something important.) Thanks!
I'd love to join this, too! I'm new to this, though, and don't really know what to do or where to start. Also, it's the holidays in Japan at the moment and I will be busy entertaining family members for a few days, so I won't be able to start right away (not until the 18th). Can I still join even if I can't start til the 18th? Thanks!
Hub log is nothing but a way to keep track of your and other participant's progress. It contains your goals, motivations and summaries of the 30 hubs you would publish in the challenge. You can check my latest hub for example on hublog, but make sure you make a hub only by answering Sunforged's question.
Also, you can refer to the example I mentioned above.
No, not exactly. When you publish hub answering Sunforged question sunforged will know that you are participating and he will keep a track on the progress of participants. Also, we would be putting unique tags on our hublog so that we can monitor each other progress and motivate each other. Also, hublog is of vital use in the promotion phase. But you need worry of that now. You can just publish a hub, by answering SF's request. I have already published mine. You can have a look and if you have firther question do let me know.
We can answer a question twice. I mean I have two replies for the SF question. One is short answer and other is my hublog!! And I think we can't post two short answer but we can make as many hubs as we want!!
I think I understand. I just answered Sunforged's question saying count me in, but now I need to answer again saying 'make a hub about' and this time start a new hub that is a Hublog? Do future hubs in the challenge need to go through the same question? I hope not because I have 40-50 hubs already started and I was hoping the challenge would push me into actually writing them, but if I have to go through a question each time, like you have to do for Hubmob, then I'll need to go research for new titles.
Yeah, I know, that's why I'm taking some time and thinking about it. I don't want to waste anybody's time. I've just started working on a series that would give me 13 hubs and I've been thinking about going over some of my old university essays, doing some keyword research and re-writing them. Hopefully the challenge would motivate me to actually get some things written.
I'll think about it tonight and maybe join over the weekend.
Thanks SF... looking forward to it - we can achieve!!!
Englightenedsoul - Since the last 60dc, I have been using my time putting the new found knowledge to use. You know, generally tidying up hubs, new tags and promoting on various sites.
Have also had to get my autistic son sorted out as regards to further education - stress was not the word and not an exaggeration, but you will be able to read about the miracle that I performed in getting funding for this further education in one of my 30/30!
I have also been sorting out my businesses - trimming back and making things more efficient (as recession bites - one has to cut cloth to fit). Oh, and it has been festival season! Rocking all over the UK! Met Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), Richard Hawley (Pulp) and The National at Latitude, Lilly Allan, Jade Jagger at Glastonbury. And who knows what adventure I might stumble upon at next weekend's Green Man Fest??? (boast, boast - fun fun!)
Generally, however, I have been getting my house in order *wink* lol
Right I've got my log prepared, but apart from writing a little about the actual 60 day challenge and my aims, I don't have much more to add because this is a LOG right, so my hubs as they are written will be added. I've written about 500 words. Do I hit publish now and add more stuff later?
Also I am wondering if I can write in multiple accounts for this? I'm guessing no because it would be too complicated for others, huh?
I don't write under this account. Not for money anyways. But this is the account I use in the forums, and also the account which I just signed up under.
That said, of course I had existing goals and plans which involved all of my accounts and I would rather incorporate the challenge into my existing goals and plans rather than put my existing aside for the sake of the challenge.
Still, if I must do it all under one account to participate, then I will because I'm certain working directly with you through this process will learn me quite a bit. I've read a whole lot of stuff, but have trouble actually utilizing it, and I think this challenge will help me to better do that.
I should point out that I am in day 4 of work at home/stay at home dad duties. With a 9 week old girl.
My only uninterrupted work time for direct responses is between around 10pm-3am EST
I get around... but please dont feel slighted if i miss a response before that time.
There is at least 40 hubs published that reference elements of the challenge and past experiences of members .. processes etc.
When our team is complete (signified by the publication of a team hub such as this one .. h ttp://hubpages.com/hub/Goals-Planning-Success-The-60-day-Challenge-Team-on-HubPages ) then we can begin on the very simple additions that make this a group challenge.
For now ..just seeing who is interested and announcing that we are "challenging" again?
Oh yeah, I read that somewhere and meant to congratulate you on it next time I encountered you. But then I forgot. Kudos! Babies are so precious, enjoy every minute you can while it lasts.
Alright, thanks for your response on that. Some are already publicly linked from this account, and some aren't. Wait lemme think. At least one isn't. But I don't really care, wasn't a privacy issue or anything, I just didn't think my money hubs would benefit from being affiliated with me, you know, me being such a anti-religious witch in the forums and in my PB hubs and all.
So yeah, that'll be fine with me if it won't be too much trouble on ya'll's end. I don't want to be a hassle.
I could put my PB avatar on any other accounts I use for the duration of the challenge, and put PB in for my location. That should make all of them easily recognizable as mine.
OK .. so I've been reading some people's hub logs. I think I get what it's about now However, what I don't understand is do I have to write a hub log summarizing each hub we do for the challenge? Would it be like, I write a hub for the challenge each day AND a hub log about that hub each day (so basically 2 hubs a day)? Also, the hub log is blog-style, right? Sorry for such noob questions
Oh, one more thing. Once I put up a hub log answering Sunforged's question, that officially begins my 60DC and I need to have a hub published everyday thereafter, right?
Thanks and looking forward to working through this with all of you great people!
you will write only one hublog and within the first thirty days of the challenge you have to finish the 30 hubs
Hublog is for updating your activities during the course of the challenge If you have time, pls monitor the hub of Sunforged about the challenge and read his past recent hubs they are very helpful If you have anymore questions please don't hesitate to ask again
Hi I posted earlier to the other forum do do the 60DC - I am looking through the logs etc to know what I have to do. I have heard how fantastic the challenge is and what you can learn so all very exciting. Please let me know what I need to do to be included.
Now that the team building phase is complete, what types of questions are left unanswered that should be covered in the next team hub?Any ideas that we should include in our team effort?Any other Hub authors want to...
30 hubs in 30 days is great...but how much time did you spend making sure your efforts will be viewed ?Are your 30 Hubs a craps shoot, a gamble ..are you just throwing *it* against the wall and seeing what sticks?Join...
It's been pretty quiet so I'm just wondering how everyone is going?We were just having a discussion about the 30 Hubs target. I know some people are still working hard to achieve it (you can make it!), but I also...
Now are we doing this again? I recognise many of us are time constrained, wonderful events have occurred and life may be a little busier right now That said - are we up for another, if so - when? I'd love to 'go team'...
It seems that a number of people from HubPages are planning to do Ed Dale's 30 Day Challenge this year, which is all about learning how to use various tools and websites to drive traffic to your website (or Hubs).Ed...
