Health Awareness and 30 Hubs

Joining the March health and wellness month at HubPages and contest, my goal was to make a hub on every subject presented and to go for the 30 Hubs in 30 day challenge. Winning the daily contest would have been a plus, though not expected.

Prior to starting this, I had been a member on Hubpages for 9 months. Yet felt like a newbie. I missed out on the Hubnuggets when I first joined.

Just a month before starting this contest and challenge, I had 94 followers and 13 hubs. As of publishing this hub, I have 249 followers and 43 hubs.

I still don’t get the number system on HubPages. I have seen Hubbers with short Hubs and high scores. (Not to say there are plenty of long Hubs with high scores.) I have seen Hubbers with few followers and Hubs with overall high hubscores. (Again the opposite applies too.)

I do realize that content, participation and keywords do play a part in this. Working on the right keywords is something I need to work on. My highest hubscore reached the low 90s, but not sure if I will see that again. Low 80s seem to be the place for me.

I am not a health professional. I am a researcher and have researched health issues for years. Seeing the March health contest here on HubPages, I knew this was something that I could do with my 30 day challenge. This hub is number 30 and a great way to include all the health hubs for this challenge.

Now is the time for a must needed break. Don't forget about me. I'm still here, but not with a hub a day. At least until next time I go with the insanity.

Sandy, you are funny, Insanity???(referring to the caption on your picture of the 30 day challenge). LOL.

During the 30 day challenge, I published some Hubs in the areas I'm interested in, but not for every topic nor on everyday. I knew I probably couldn't deal with it. LOL. However, I'm glad they had the challenge. It pushed me to publish more and it gave me lots of ideas on what to write about.

I'm with you about the whole ratings thing. I've pretty much decided not to worry about trying to figure it out.

I think you did an excellent job on your Hubs. You deserve a break. Take care.

You need a standing ovation for producing so many hubs. I'm already hyperventilating with the 2 or 3 hubs I produced during this Health month and that's quite an achievement, considering I tweet out one a week on average. You've done well and here's to more success for you at HP. Cheers!

Kudos to you! 30 hubs in thirty days is a lot. I did 10 in 10 days to get started here at hub pages and that just about killed me. Great job and great material too....think you've covered just about everything! Now you can relax a bit :)

Congrats on the challenge. I am still working on the 30 in 30. Great hub here. Good info. I don't even worry about my hubscore anymore because sometimes its very high and sometimes very low I think gremlins are in charge of our hubscores. Remember gremlins, no not the car, never mind. lol

Glad the Health Awareness 30 Hubs in 30 Days worked out for you Sandy, and I hope that those Hubs will go on earning you lots of money. It just drove me to writing about Turkish Delight!

Great job Sandy.

How much time does a person spend each day on average working on creating hubs when you do one per day?

Sandyspider profile image

Sandyspider 6 years ago from Wisconsin, USA Author

Grant's World, I really didn't have much time for anything else. I know some people can just pump these out, but I put a lot of thought and research into them.

Wow, Sandy Great hub and very impressive achievement. Congratulations to you! I admire all the people who take these challenges. Every single hub seems to be a challenge for me just trying to find the time to write and follow up with each.

Hats off to you, great job!

This was a great hub. I agree with some of your early comments about hub scores/numbers, and your honesty about your own numbers. One of mine fluctuates up to 94 but drops back again. Like you, more work on keywords. Some days, I just edit for that and usually see results.

I've enjoyed your health hubs a great deal. Very informative. You've grown your collection a lot in the past month or so. I'm like you about the scores though...I have no idea what they are based upon.
