Hey guys: I was wondering if we all could list here when we publish new poems in the 30 days' series Lita Sorensen suggested in her Hub? I've been checking "Hubtivity" to see if people are posting poems, but I'm sure I've missed some -- Can we do that? I know the rules say not to start a thread simply to post links, but this would be a way to keep track of each other's poems.
I agree Teresa. Besides some of the poems that have come out since Lila's hub have similar sounding titles - it's confusing at times. Your idea would help us keep tabs on each one.
PS i have yet to start work on one though - reading all those poems is so much fun I can't get myself started
What I would suggest is that you create a request for the 30 day series, and have each hub answer the request. That way they will all be grouped together in one place.
Hi Paul - This does like a great idea however, if we don't answer the poems in the listed order by hub request (which is how people are answering them - me included) will this put the whole process out of kilter? cheers
in other words can we provide a poem in the order and timeframe that we choose? or as I re-read your suggestion above could it be a 30 day series with all requests in together for people to pick and choose at will? thanks
Unfortunately no, but my suggestion will work for all new hubs going forward. Now that I've read more about what the thirty day series is, I would suggest creating one new request for each day that is left. You could then use the RSS feed from the request as a capsule in the main hub to list the top scoring hubs for each day.
I'm having to take a day or two off the challenge. I'm under the weather and can't think of writing at the moment.
I'm new to this. What in the world is this poetry challenge you refer to, and how can I participate? I read the request in Hub requests section, and it led me to a profile, not to an answer to that question. I am a poet, and so far I have posted one poem as part of an article, and am thinking of publishing more in Hubs but not sure how to go about it.
Of course, we could always do what everyone else has been doing all along, I've just discovered, and add links to our poems in the comments section at the end of Lita's original Hub. I believe the correct comment for me to make now is "D'oh."
Or, put a tag in. I put in Random Poetry Challenge as a tag in my postings.
Wow, a lot has occurred while I have been busy and my internet iffy...
Ryan Hupfer has suggested that I make a request for each random poem suggestion--so that we'd all be notified and because it would promote linkage and more traffic.
What do you guys think? I could do that, if it is helpful....
I wanna reiterate, tho, you can take any piece or part of these random directions and use them for whatever day you want. I hate being told what to do and when to do it, lol! So!
Huh! Nobody is responding to me....
This thing has taken on a life of its own, lol!
I don't know what that means (?)
Ryan e-mailed me & suggested I do the above--but seriously--I'm quite busy these days with writing projects, and my internet has been in and out, so that is fine--if everyone has worked it out and don't want me to.
Can someone say what day the challenge is on and whether it is still active?
You don't have to follow it that stringently. Just pick a day and write a poem, regardless of what day others are on.

I know that hubpages really pushes for new hubs to be created, and rightfully so. However, I'm thinking it would be nice to be able to "answer a hub request" with an existing hub.So if someone does a hub...

Is there a way to exclude hubbers who do not have idled hubs from the 24 hour review for new articles? This may be the wrong place to enter this request, and maybe it is an impossibility. It would be nice if staff could...

I wrote a hub today to answer a request, but failed to use the *answer request* option to start. Now, I've emailed the requester and posted info in my hub's comments to link readers back to the request. That's a lot of...
