I challenge myself and anyone who wishes to join to answer 50 hub questions by writing 50 quality hubs as answers between July 1st-July 31st. Lets hope it doesn't become an early April fools joke lol.

There have been previous Challenges to write large numbers of Hubs in a short time - 50, 70, 100. They generally backfire, leading to the production of poorer quality, less developed Hubs. That's why these days, HubPages has set the official Challenge at 30 Hubs in 30 days - even that isn't easy, as you'll find if you try it.
It's even more so for new Hubbers not to set the quantity too high. You've only been here a couple of days, so you still have a bit to learn about what makes a "quality" Hub. If you go ahead and write a pile of Hubs without learning about Hubbing first, you'll just wind up with 50 Hubs which all need revising!
For instance, your Hub on Camera Traps has good information and is a good length, but it's obvious you haven't edited it. A good writer always edits their work after writing, to make sure it reads well. For me, editing sometimes takes me longer than writing!
A few other tips to get you started:
You have only one small photo, which looks poor quality, and it's not credited - is it yours?
You could upload your videos on Youtube, then you'd be able to play them in your Hub.
If you split your Hub over several text capsules, you'll be able to put your Amazon ads at the right side of the text instead of at the bottom (items listed at the bottom of a Hub usually don't sell).
Thanks, yeah I've seen that the volume of questions asked each day isn't enough to make this challenge possible. Maybe one for the future and maybe I'll take up the 30 challenge sometime. Yeah the photo and linked videos are my own, I put the videos on another computer which is broken and the camera trap is currently out filming so when it's back I should hopefully be able to put the videos onto this computer. I have credited every image which isn't my own.

Is hubpages in danger of being over-run by writers from India who can't write proper English? I went to a hubpages question yesterday, and half the answers were from Indian hubbers who didn't understand the question but...

I will be attempting this in July and since this is my first attempt we will see how it goes. Now the question is whether I post my links here as I go.

I have been a member of Hubpages for a while but did not understand the true value of it until recently; I began updating old hubs and every one updated so far has ended up featured. I hope to do the 30 in 30 once...

I think it would be nice if we could earn money from our questions here on hubpages. Still with the 60/40 split just like on our hubs.The only thing I would think would be people posting too many questions, so maybe...
