The Official HubPages Contest 30 Day Challenge

    I'm throwing down the gauntlet, Hubbers.  Publish one Hub every day this April.  I dare you.  And make these the best Hubs you've written yet.

    The challenge is not only to publish 30 Hubs in 30 Days - one for every day in April - but to publish Hubs that include...

    *A long-tail, niche topic that has not been extensively covered online
    *A Search-friendly title (mirrors common search terms)
    *Excellent writing (proper use of grammar, capitalization)
    *Unique, useful information (not copied from elsewhere online, full of details, examples, names, and figures)
    *Attractive formatting (avoidance of excessive link, eBay, or Amazon capsule clutter, excessive bolding or italics, and all-caps)
    *Judicious use of relevant capsules (original photos (especially your own), video, maps, tables, links, news, etc.)

    These are the judging criteria for the HubPages So You Think You Can Write Online contest. If you include a WritingContest tag on each Hub you publish in this contest, it will be entered to win $50, $100, and even $250 in prizes. 

    Visit the contest page for full details on the contest, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the official contest forum thread.

    If you want your Hub to show up as part of this 30 day challenge, add the tag AprilHubChallenge.

    If you want to submit your Hub for the April writing contest, add a WritingContest tag. 


    You do not need to participate in the challenge to participate in the contest, and you do not have to participate in the contest to participate in the challenge big_smile

    Even though I can't win anything in the contest, I'll be joining in on this month's challenge.  I hope you will be, too, and look forward to reading your Hubs!

          Hi there
          I am taking part in both the Writing Contest and 30 day challenge. (April Hub Challenge?)
          Where can my hub be see for the 30 day participation. Is it at the same link as for the Writing Contest?
          Thanks in advance

          It seems that I have already failed the 30 day challenge by a complete mistake sad and I was doing great, but I failed to realize that I put "WritingContest" in all my tags instead of "AprilHubChallenge"... I have failed sad On a good note, it was fun writing articles the last 4 days and it's inspired me to write more often as I will do now.

            You can still totally be a part of the challenge- the contest and challenge are complimentary, but one is hardly required to participate in the other.  While you can't retroactively add WritingContest tags to contest entries, you can certainly add AprilHubChallenge tags to your Hubs if you forgot to the first time around big_smile

          Really looking forward to the contest (as always.) Unfortunately, don't want to commit to the 30 day challenge as I will be away out in the wilds from 27th - 29th fishing and doubt I will have Internet access because of the mountains. I know that mobile/cell phones don't work there, so doubt that my mobile Internet will either. Not going to bother taking laptop.

          I could always knock on some village doors and state that I'm on urgent Hub Pages business and ask to use their landline Internet access for a few minutes to publish, until I find a friendly and accommodating soul...???

          No - perhaps not... smile

          Good luck to everyone and thanks again Simone and Hub Pages for another great contest and opportunity for everyone.

              Very useful thanks. I am interested - for the first time in the contest - I plan to write at least one new hub every WORKING day - if not more! Good luck to all.

          OK, I'm busy opening up two countries right now, but I will have a go, tried a 30 day before but dried up half way through, must try harder this time, may even try some commercial hubs.... where my book on Rolex watches and coffee machines! smile

          This will be my first Hub Challenge. I have been thinking about ideas since the email was sent out. I *think* I have a 30 day series all plotted out that will make readers look outside the box. It is more of a creative perspective compared to the informational hubs I have done in the past. I had planned to use this series for a blog challenge that also starts April 1, but I have some other ideas for that.

          If anything, I will get 30 more hubs and maybe some more traffic!

          Good luck everyone.

              Nope! You don't have to write one Hub every day to be a part of the contest.  All you have to do to submit a contest entry is publish a Hub that is original, tagged with the WritingContest tag, longer than 400 words, and that has never been published within the contest period.  There's a max of five entries per day.  That's all big_smile

          By the way, can the Hubs be related? I mean, can some be connected at all by a topic?

          Thanks smile

          Oh, and by the 'tag', do you mean the graphic?

            Connect your related hubs with links. You can do this when editing the capsule use the link button in the bar.

            To enter the hub in the contest mention the tag in the list of tags.
            I think this was helpful. There is 23 hrs left for the first entry if I am not mistaken about the time. I am 12 and a half hours ahead of Hubpages.

            The Hubs can definitely be related.  And I recommend taking advantage of HubPages Groups - just put them all in a group and set the order so they'll be nice and organized big_smile

          I'm always full of questions. Most have been answered. Saw how to check word count from somebody somewhere, but can't find or I'm just missing it. Glad somebody asked about related hubs; some planned--can they?

            To check your word count ...

            After a Hub is published, you can see the word count by going to "stats" and then "hub metrics" for that particular hub.

            Before a Hub is published, you can copy and paste the article into Microsoft Word, and use its word count feature to determine the number of words. This feature is typically under "Tools -> word count".

              RedElfposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              Actually if you click "Save Unpublished", you can check the word count using the stats button. Sometimes the stats may not be available right away, but the stats do show up there the same on a published hub.
