HubChallenges is kicking my ___

I cant wait for the next 13 days to pass.


I feel like a whimpering baby complaining so

But how much can I take, I just dont know!


I stay up until 2 am trying to write

I cant think of more ideas - it isnt right.


I think I rhymed two words that will sound the same

I dont even care - this poem is a cheat and it's lame.


I wanted to get to bed earlier tonight

Exhaustion has left me quite the sight.



Money!!
Money!! | Source

I have black circles under my eyes

My butt has grown at least one size.


Sitting this much at my computer just isnt healthy

But maybe all this writing will make me wealthy!


So this is Hub 18 or is it only 17 perhaps

I wonder how Johnny Depp would look in chaps.


I warned all my friends when times got to be a true trial

I'd throw random lines on Hubs and call them poems for a while.


So this brings me to the end of a short poetic Hub

Please do my ego a favor and show it some love!



(Note: This is supposed to be a funny poem I threw together when I was having trouble coming up with ideas and motivation - please dont think of this as a desperate cry for support - I love all the support I've gotten so far and it pushes me to go on day to day - again, this is just my way of poking fun...I really DO love this challenge...I've learned a lot from it! Thank you all!)

Ardie, this is a fun poem and here is hub love coming your way. Take it easy. Relax and do your bit..don't push your limits at the cost of your health... you should have fun doing it.. not feel stressed. I have never taken this challenge... you are brave! Best wishes!

This poem was cute. You can do that challenge. Double up writing on the weekends. Go through the topics, research a favorite writer or food product, think about a favorite vacation you had, people that lift you up, what you learned from a grandparent...you'll get there! Don't give up.

Keep writing Ardie I love your Hubs... Running low on ideas lets see... Write about ethical dilemmas faced on the job, How to make your Super Bowl party a success, Valentines day gifts that show how much you care... You like to ask 21 questions, how about interview some of the new Hubbers you have greeted :) i hope this gives you aome inspiration. Good luck. I'm here if you need me.

Voted up! lol Ardie now you know why I didn't take up this challenge. The days here so snowy, cold and gray have made me lazy and crazy lol so I came up with that cute poem about bliss. Knowing how I am I agree with you a challenge is a challenge but it can make you batty or my favorite word discombobulated. lol

Hehehe...I'll admit that with all my writing lately, I've gotten a little more flab. HAHAHA! I just love your hubs, Ardie. I can't wait to see the next 13. *lucky 13* :D

Hello Victoria Lynn :) Thank you for the votes and support! I promise my next Hub is much better – I already have it outlined.

Shimmering Dawn, thank you for the hub love! I took your advice and just let go of writing or planning any writing and took several hours off from the computer and guess what – I got hit with an idea! After venting a little last night I am back on a roll.

Ytsenoh, oh! A vacation idea – love it! Thank you so much :) I had even jotted notes on a fave trip I took with the kids and forgot all about it.

Ian! Walk away from this Hub and ignore anything you just read hahah Seriously, you can do this. I am just feeling a slight bit overwhelmed right now. Or at least I was – I feel much better now after giving myself a much deserved break. I am here to support you the entire 30 days!!

Thank you so much Debbie – I really am having fun –this was my way of sticking my tongue out at the challenge.

aDayInMyLife1 – Thank you so much!!!!! I never even thought about interviewing NEW Hubbers! That’s a fantastic idea. And then in another 6 months I can follow-up and see how things changed :)

K Burns Darling, I will be over to look at your nonsense poems then! Thank you for the votes and the wishes for luck :)

Nuchime, thank you! I always love seeing you :)

Gypsy Rose, Thanks for the vote and yes now I see. And I also remember why I haven’t done it before now… I will look for your poem about Bliss. I could use some right now. Its been very gray here too. Funny thing is this weather cant decide if it wants to be snow or rain! So then Im pelted with big wet raindrops but see big fluffy snowflakes…weird.

Cclitgirl, I’ve decided I need to kick up my workout another 20 minutes OR start typing standing up. I DID read somewhere that sitting too much is awful for your butt muscles heheh thank YOU for all the support you’ve given me too!

Sunshine, Sunshine, Sunshine! YOU are my motivation and inspiration in this Challenge :) 5 more, you’re as good as done now girl. A letter to a chicken?! Oh my…I can’t wait!

Raci, your comment is the funniest I’ve gotten in ages! And you know what – I WILL kick it back :) Thanks for the laugh

This poem is kicking my ____. Seriously though, if cuteness could lead a country, this poem would be the next president.

@Ardie, the Hub Challenge can be difficult, but this little poem about HubChallenge is kicking my ___ is quite funny and I seriously doubt your butt has grown one size. Good job just throwing something together. :) Voted up! :)

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

Ha! You're so funny Haunty :) I'm glad you approve though and you won't make me submit something better to count towards the challenge!

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

hahah alcosin, I wondered if anyone would notice the original title! I should've known it would be you :P I first started this Hub as an ode to writing but I got stuck and it took this direction instead. Thanks for the votes :)

I'm laughing and clicked everything on the top except beautiful. You could even got for a walk and see things to write about and get your butt back to it's original size, Joyce

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

writer20, you're so funny :D but smart. A walk to reflect on the day and think of things to write about? Genius!!!! Thanks for the votes and the idea.

Ardie, another neat hub and very funny. You should try stand up comedy. You could call it An Evening With Ardie, The One Woman Show.

Haven't seen you around my hubs for over a week, feel free to visit anytime, you know you are always welcome. You never know you might learn something about how to cure writers block! Ha Ha.

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

Hiya Posh! I will be coming around to your hubs tonight. This was a rough week on me...the weather, the writing, the kids' activities and other things just got me overwhelmed. I feel mush better (so much better that Im going to leave that typo because its funny hahah).

I can't even fathom trying to come up with a new idea each day. Hang in there though you're doing great. I like how to link other hubber's articles in your own, that's a really good idea I think I will start trying.

Keep going girl you are almost there. Think of how good it will feel when you are done and can rest. I love it and want to hear more.

Oh, you have all my sympathy. Really, this challenge is a crazy horse. But you're on it and may not fall off. And you are doing good plus you even reply on comments. You are a super-hot-hubber :))

Let me give you some ideas (and perhaps you've already done it... you know how far behind am I with reading - but really I am trying my best :))) These ideas may just give you more ideas...

Photo-hubs with specific themes - let the photo's tell the story and end with a little poem;

Quotes with a specific theme - or maybe this may be regard as a duplicate, although I've seen a lot of these kinds of hubs, but if you try it, remember to unlink the quote.

20 Reasons why you (or someone else) should be crowned as the most perfect, or crazy, or beautiful....

A list of your favorite songs and why/when.... including videos...

List of your favorite hubbers - with links to there profiles (for readers to follow)...

Replies/reviews on hubs of other hubbers...

I do have more ideas, but I believe these are enough for now.

OMW, I feel like a wreck on your behalf, while I already feel like a wreck, sleeping only 3 hours at a time!

I'm sending you a pot of strong Rooibostee (red bush tea) - made in (only) South-Africa. Oh, and then you can even write a hub about people's favorite 1st drink in the morning. Tea, coffee, juice or whiskey....

:) Your ego, your self-image, your mind and your true self are loved and worthy to be worshiped.

You are awesome!

And really, Ardie, I never fake compliments. If I find nothing to praise, I will simply be polite.

I'm cheering you: Go Ardie, go!

Hi Ardie, this made me really giggle. I am sure we have all been there?

I was only last night, thinking about an opening line for a book. I went down this route. 'The door opened' No that's no good. 'The phone rang' No that's no good either.

It went on like this for a while lol.

Still didn't get the line ha ha.

Great poem on the writing process. Keep going.

Voted up funny and SHARING.

That's what you get for acting on a dare. Maybe now you'll learn. Need a hub idea? How about writing about your butt getting bigger with pictures. May get lots of google traffic.

This was really neato, you can do it! If your having trouble comming up with things to write about, my hub about getting more traffic has a tip about writing down ideas you may have during the day on a note pad as you think of them, hope that helps. Good luck Ardie!

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

Hello shuck72 :) thankfully I have the BEST support system that has helped me come up with ideas. I have so many now that I may try the 100 Hubs in 30 days next! Just kidding just kidding…

Triplet Mom! :) Im in the single digits now and I am running full tilt to the finish line. And I promised myself a week off of everything after I hit publish on that last Hub.

Martie dear, I HAVE to reply to my comments – you all are WHY I write. I love all of you and I wouldn’t be able to ignore comments. I feel replying is my way of saying thank you to each of you :) Behind on reading? Oh my word…I have numerous notification emails in my inbox just waiting for me hahah I will get to everyone’s Hubs too… be patient with me! Thank you SO much for the ideas. They’re brilliant! I was just saying up above that I have the BEST support system ever. Love you!

Hello molometer :)I had to laugh while I was reading your comment. I’ve been there and gone through the opening line bit. I’ve even scrapped whole Hubs because I just couldn’t start them! So do tell, have you figured yours out yet? Hahaha

GT, I know where you live and I will bring my bottle and I will… oh, wait. Thank you for reading :P

AA! Two of my favorite male Hubbers in a row! (you and meanie GT) Ha! I will not document the size of my growing behind on HubPages with photos. But you DO give me a good idea. I should make a Hub of women with shape and good booties to show that curves are a GOOD thing. Thanks ;)

Radhikasree, Thank you so much for the well wishes. All of the positive feedback from everyone is more than enough to push me to the end. I CAN do this!

Zzron, thank you for reading :) I love the idea of keeping a notepad with me to write down ideas!! Thanks for the luck.

This was absolutely hilarious... it takes some real talent to push something out like this when you are fresh out of ideas... but sometimes it is just what you need in order to really get pushed to the next level. I know you did it just for fun... but kudos!

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

Hi barbergirl :) Im glad you liked this! I was at the end of my rope with this one hehe I wont ever do another challenge but I will admit it was a little fun.

Hey Ardie! I couldn't even keep up with the reading when you all were doing the 30/30 - I told ya I was gonna hafta play catch up! Lol

This was smart too - I knew I would dry up mid 30 (of ideas:) lol


Ardie profile image

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

Hiya RHW :) I dont judge anyone for not keeping up with the 30/30. I remember this last go when about 30 people were doing the 30/30 and Im STILL trying to catch up months later! Slowly but surely... or so I keep tellintg myself hehe
