60dc Interest thread

    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    The second 60 Day Challenge is set to begin...

    This time around we have a strong team of original challengers returning to give support to new participants.

    As a result of the demands of the first challenge, we also have a full forum with functioning chat to use for collaborative discussion and one on one assistance.

    Today a Hubpages focused online writers toolbar was also created. This tool, with the addition of our dashboard really streamlines the creation and promotion process.

    In order to stay true to the personal interaction that made our first collaborative successful and fun, the new participant level will be capped at around 30.

    This thread is to gauge interest and answer any general questions for those who may be curious yet unaware of the 60 day Challenge.

    The actual composition or writing phase will still be a few days away to give some time for the news to travel for those who are not active daily in the forums.

    Im super excited and have spent the last 3 nights trying to come up with ways to make the challenge fun, including some surprise bonuses that I think will go over well.

      I would really like to join this time, but school is starting. I don't want to take up a spot if I can't follow through.

      Just a quick few questions, please:

      How many hours per day is best for each phase? (1-2 in content creation and 1 in marketing??)

      Can I re-purpose old hubs or do they all need to be brand new?

      What are the start and end dates?

      Thanks! I hope I don't have to miss out on this one.

        Jule, the content creation part is totally upto you.  It depends on your speed.

        All the hubs need to be brand new

        Officially the challenge will start is a day or two once we are done with the team building process.  In short, once we have 30 hubbers, the challenge starts.


        I hope you would be able to join us!!!

        sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        soft start - about 3 days from now - soft end 63 days from now

        Time expenditure?

        I imagine you could be a fully active participant with only 45 minutes a day of focused activity.

        Pretty much based on your own research and writing styles and your familiarity with the net

    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!!

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      You will want to publish it in response to the 60Dc interest question - just as you do with a HubMob

      see examples: http://hubpages.com/question/45063/who- … 30-days-of (First Challenge)

      It helps immensely with organization

      *edit*( I see you are all over it already wink  ) wow, I almost dont even have to write any intro material! ES' HubLog is solid!

      Although, there will be some revisions to the promo phase...I have to change it up a bit and keep it fun for the return participants!

    englightenedsoulposted 6 years ago

    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!!

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      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.

    I am interested in taking part in the challenge - are their any rules for topics etc. and when is it due to start?

    1. englightenedsoul profile image59
      englightenedsoulposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      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.

    2. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      There are no rules.

      There are some guidelines that facilitate the group aspects but nothing that would impugn on your personal choice of writing topics.

    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.

  7. humagaia profile image70
    humagaiaposted 6 years ago

    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).

      You just need to set up your hub log answering sunforged question which you can find here

      http://hubpages.com/question/66048/who- … the-return

      Your hublog should mention your goals and motivations for the challenge.  For example, look at this hublog

    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!

    1. englightenedsoul profile image59
      englightenedsoulposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Yes you can still join, you just need to set up your hublog and you will have 30 days to publish your 30 hubs before we go to the promotion stage.

  18. stazstaz profile image60
    stazstazposted 6 years ago

    Sorry I'm new... how do you set up a hublog? And what do I say in it?

    1. englightenedsoul profile image59
      englightenedsoulposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      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.

      1. stazstaz profile image60
        stazstazposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        oh I see, so we write it keeping track of our progress while we're doing the 60 Day Chalenge and then we publish it at the end?

        1. englightenedsoul profile image59
          englightenedsoulposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          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.

      2. lrohner profile image85
        lrohnerposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Well, I had already "answered" Sunforged's question by saying "Count me in." Since we can't answer a question twice, I can make a hub but it won't be "attached" to the question. So now what do I do?

        1. englightenedsoul profile image59
          englightenedsoulposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          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!!

    Thank you ES, for providing us with this very relevent info. I shall now go and rush to create a hublog and to dream up 30 hub titles, so that I might be one of the lucky first 30 new sign-ups.

    With that in mind, do the hub titles I dream up in the next two minutes to beat the rush I was given no warning of have to be what i end up publishing, or can changes be made later?

    IzzyMposted 6 years ago

    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.

    1. englightenedsoul profile image59
      englightenedsoulposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Only Hublogs are to be made answering SF's question so that he can keep a track and when the quota of 30 participants is full he will close the question.

      Other hubs are to be made and publish just like normal hubs!!!

    Hi, You add yourself to the list of 30 by publishing a log in response to 60Dc interest question.

    Examples of the logs and the general focus and purpose of these devices are easily found.

    There are 30 published from  last challenge - the term 60DC in a Hubpages search brings up most of the answers to these questions.

    Some really stellar examples can be found here:

    I really want to join but I find it so difficult to concentrate on writing that I doubt I would ever get 30 in 30 done. Would have to find a way to mega motivate myself.

    How many people have you got at the moment?

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I believe only two New challengers have "officially" entered.

      I would caution to only become involved if you are not determined to complete 30 in 30 and an additional 30 days of promotion.

      It is not a flippant decision, as we work and succeed as a group.

      1. jenblacksheep profile image85
        jenblacksheepposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        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

    Some modifications are in order for this second challenge and are being worked on right now.

        When we created the first challenge, we had the convenience of focusing on one task at a time.

        Now that the majority of the process is published, I would hope that we dont get ahead of ourselves.

        My current focus is only to organize our new team.

      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?

      Sorry if this is a stupid question....

    Pandoras Boxposted 6 years ago

    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.

    Let me know, and I'll adjust accordingly.

    1. sunforged profile image63
      sunforgedposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      you can do that.

      We are connected by our tag selection.

      You would make our interaction easier by selecting only one profile as your "face" of interaction and publishing your hublog under that profile.

      Are your various profiles openly connected together or would you be attempting to keep them private?

      As the interlinking would be difficult if nobody knows who you are?

      Your plan is an added difficulty but it can be managed.

  32. sunforged profile image63
    sunforgedposted 6 years ago

    Although it is fun to see so many write ups on the 60dc as part of the logs and some general background is wise to include for any search or random visitors.

    It is your personal log - use it as you wish.

    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, lemme think for a few hours.

    Great stuff folks - it looks like everything is progressing nicely.

    I am very busy for the rest of tonight and tomorrow, but I will make sure that I have a 60C log up and running on Sunday smile

      Hi Tony, (Leanman)! Now you can start to write your HUBLOG by answering this link with a hub -- http://hubpages.com/question/66048/who- … the-return

    Hello All,


    Quick request - Please Do Not copy any of the tags from the original challenge

    It will seriously complicate the organization of this challenge.

    All tags will be announced before the writing phase begins.

    Just a thought ...


    tags are a great seo resource here at Hubpages -

    At this time any reference to 60 day challenge and the dozens of variants I have seen is not something that will help your traffic grow!

    I absolutely promise there is a good reason!

    1. viking305 profile image90
      viking305posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      So do you want us to take out all tags with 60 day challenge words in them on our hublogs? I know this  is more than likely a stupid question but just want to double check.

    Anolindeposted 6 years ago

    OK .. so I've been reading some people's hub logs.  I think I get what it's about now smile  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 tongue

    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! smile

      Hi Anolinde, this is what I did to my first hublog during the first 60 day challenge -- http://hubpages.com/hub/The-60-Day-Chal … ing-Online

      you can also check what Ms Susana did by summarizing her hubs after the first thirty days of the first 60 day challenge http://hubpages.com/hub/online-articles-recent

      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 Billy, it is very important for you to start the hublog by answering the question of SF. This is for proper coordination later on for promotion purposes!

              Hi Billy, yes because it is very important for tagging purposes, and for easy monitoring by members of the team when we use RSS!

                    Thanks for this info, pdh, I made my hub before i knew this, so I deleted that one and made a new one.

                    I just wish I could have kept the comments people left. sad

                    Thanks for your helpfulness again. I'm always one step behind, it seems.

    Hi 60DCers,

    I took part in the original 60DC, and after managing to do the 30 hubs, had to leave midway for some reasons.

    I would love to do the challenge, but I am not sure I would be able to see it through. The writing part is not a problem - neither is the promotion part, for that matter.

    So, I guess I will stay out and watch the progress from outside for the 60DC - Part II. I hope better luck for 60DC - Part III!

    Wishing the best to all 60DCers!

      Hi, your hublog was included in the feed! Let us just wait for Sunforged (SF) after finalizing the participants!

      For the meantime just read SF hubs if you have time!
