Mel, there was a 100 Hubs in 30 Day Challenge some time ago on HubPages. It caused the worst trouble there has ever been on HubPages - many wonderful writers left as a result. The mere thought of it makes me quake in my boots.
The trouble is, you may be able to write 100 Hubs in that time and maintain quality, but most people can't. The result was a big drop in quality from normally good Hubbers. A lot of newbies also joined in and wrote 100 rubbish Hubs because they hadn't learned how to write one properly. There was an enormous amount of angst on the forums.
That's why the 30 Hubs in 30 Day Challenge came about - because it's manageable for all, but still a challenge for many.
So I wish you well in your own efforts but I hope this doesn't get too much publicity.
No possible way to generate anything even remotely resembling quality on that scale in that period of time.
Yes, in a plausible universe, some amazing genius who needs no sleep and types 1,000 words a minute could do it, but, in that same universe about 48.7% of all current NFL cheerleaders would also want to come do dirty things to me, and, even more amazingly, my wife doesn't even care and, rather, actually throws herself on the pile of them, adding to the fun. Now, while that is an amazing plausible universe that I love in concept, I have to say, it's a very unlikely one.
Not necessarily. For example, in the last 48 hours hubber Kathryn Vercillo has published 7 hubs. If she were to continue at that pace, she would have slightly more than 100 hubs in a 30 day period. Her quality has always been top notch.
She currently has 1120 hubs and a hub score of 100.
It is possible to produce three quality hubs a day. Most people say it takes about twenty minutes to write one hub. It takes me longer than that, but I can surely produce three quality hubs in eight hours. I am finding that the more I do, the easier it becomes, as I become familiar with the process of planning a hub, and get faster at making decisions about what photos to include, etc.
Totally agree with you on that! If you haven't hubbed in a while, it takes a lot of resources to get focused and it takes a while to get everything together. However, when I'm writing a lot of them, I'm on a roll! I just have to keep going!
Right now, it looks like I'm about 25 hubs behind my target, but I've actually got a mass publishing about 30 hubs coming sometime this week when I get all the photos and everything together. In the meantime, I'm writing more hubs. So I SHOULD finish on target.
I think this is a neat challenge and I plan on trying it out soon, probably in January. I am a very new hubber so I would like to learn some of the basics before I try this challenge. I think after all, the most important thing is quality of the hubs, then quantity. For example, I just wrote my first hub yesterday, then today I decided to reread it, made a few minor changes to the content, but then I reformatted the whole thing to look much nicer. Perhaps these processes become automatic to the veteran, but I think some professionalism is nice regardless whether posting hubs is just a hobby or a job. It is always possible to just pump out more and more content, but then we wouldn't give ourselves the time to go back and refine our current work. I wish all the best on this challenge should they choose to accept it
This is an old thread, I'm surprised that it was recently resurfaced.
I failed at it in that I didn't get all the hubs done that I wanted, but I got a ton of awesome ideas. Unfortunately, it did kind of burn me out a bit. I don't recommend it, but I do recommend the 30 hubs in 30 days.
Yep, I'm going to be writing 100 Hubs in 30 days starting next Monday, May 11th. This might sound a little crazy (because it is), but I promise that I have a somewhat logical reason for doing it.So here's the story --...
HelloI am very inspired to take the 100 hubs in 30 days challenge. I will do my best, but i really request for guidance regarding rules and regulations. I hope the nice people here will co-operate with meRegardsPeruquois
When the March Q&A Contest was announced and there was mention of daily drawings for hubs, I had the idea that it was the perfect time to try out the HubChallenge with the added bonus of using Questions to inspire...
Hey all,Even though I'm fairly new here, I was reading about the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge, and I think I'm going to challenge myself to completing 100 hubs in 50 instead... What do you think?Soon!!KristenGrace
