I just decided I'd like to try the 30/30 challenge and have a few questions before I start. I figure I'll start tomorrow, which ought to give me enough time to figure out a few topics to write about (unless I count the hub I published today, in which case I will have already done day one!)
My main question is: Do I have to write a blog post letting everyone know what I'm doing, or was that just a suggestion so that my friends will know and hold me to my own challenge?
Second, any advice for thinking up topics to write about? That's my main worry; I don't want to run out of ideas.
For topics I'd look at possible trends this year that might be popular but at the same time have an evergreen appeal. (e.g. The Olympics, Presidential Elections)
I must admit this 30 day challenge seems strange to me. On the one hand Hubpages ask for quality Hubs but on the other hand ask folk to churn out a Hub a day for a month. Seems a contradiction to me.
I can only say that if anyone can produce 30 top quality Hubs each day for a month then they have my admiration.
I've completed a 30 Days Challenge twice. Both of them were a learning experience for me and I notice that these challenges have taught me how to write and publish on a regular basis even when I'm not participating in a challenge. However, I took one step further and joined a challenge aiming at publishing 500 articles during one year. This means I'll be starting (and finishing, hopefully) 30/30 challenges often until January next year.
As for the topics, ask yourself what you are passionate about, what you are knowledgeable about and what you would like to learn more about. Brainwave ideas, try to link them together, draw sub-topics and do some keyword research. This will help you generate even more ideas. Categorizing these ideas might help, too. However, I recommend writing multiple articles on the same broad topic and a few sub-topics, or writing a series of 6 articles on one topic. The latter option gives you the chance to work on five different topics, but you can still interlink a nice number of articles according to relevance. Good luck with your challenge
Today is my fifth day on the challenge, and so far it is going great! I did not post anywhere here since the March challenge was already halfway finished at the time, and I did not want to wait until April. I just decided to challenge myself, and so far it is going well. I know I have a lot to learn still, but I am really proud of my first four hubs.
Thankfully, I am not idea challenged! I have a growing list of ideas, so it will take me some time to get them all finished, if ever. I started out by making a list based on things happening in my life right now, things I have always wanted to look further into, experiences from my past, and things I simply find inspiring and worth writing about.
One tip is to take something you are interested in and turn it into multiple hubs. Don't try to cram everything you know about a subject into one hub. Focus each hub on one aspect of the subject, and then you can link them together. All of the hubs i have published so far are just starting points. I have so much more to say about all of the topics!
