30-Day Hubpages Challenge Reflections
Day 30 of the 30-Day Challenge on Hubpages
A Review of Where I have been and what is next
When you take the time to reflect back you can learn so much. A great deal has occurred in these 30 days. Besides many news alerts on radiation fallout and the Japan nuclear meltdown; running to the store to purchase kelp and buckwheat noodles to protect my thyroid; sudden Southern Tornados destroyed nearby neighborhoods; a number of people in the community had the loss of loved ones through sickness or age; others are in hospice waiting mode; a few babies born; celebration of Passover, Springtime and Easter; the start of planting gardens; re-evaluation of social networks and reading many other blogs. Who watched today's royal wedding?
This 30-Day Challenge has opened up Hubpages community with more connections and time spent learning a few more features, experts, applications and techniques.
Each time you think back what can you do better, what can your release and let go, what place do you want to enter or devote more energy to improving, we do get to a better place.
The response to questions, answers, comments and building relationships results as another important lesson as time passes.
Along the way, I met Anish92 who posted a Forum topic about What is allowed on Hubpages Each day I check My Hubpages. You can check yours at http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats and my other tutorial on using Hubpages
The Mystery of the Missing Hubpages Solves
Would you like to find out what's happening on Twitter? Many people use the #hubpages on the micro-blogging community and when you use the SEARCH, you just might find a bunch of your friends.
When you start to read the forums, you will inevitably see this abbreviations SERP, which stands for a "search engine results page." This tells the listing of web pages returned by a search engine in response to a keyword query.
The results of this type of keyword search gives a number of items: a list of web pages with titles, a link to the page, and a short description showing where the Keywords have matched content within the page. Learn more on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serp and even much more on WiseGeek
Mother's Day Inspiration
When I stopped seeing myself with the eyes of a child, I saw the woman who helped me give birth to myself. ~ Nancy Colbert Friday (born August 27, 1933) Author of "My Mother, My Self: The Daughter's Search for Identity" 1977
Questions I Ask Myself
I'm still in a quandary over the deepest question and one I imagine everyone asks themselves, "Why am I doing this?" The biggest answer is "Love." Not a strange answer, because everyone desires to be loved, cared for, supported, and appreciated.
In the past, surfing the net, I've found studies that say all of the Twitter Love and other internet interaction and feedback adds up to a lot of virtual love. But, do you know what? Your brain does not know the difference and the calming hormones activated push away those cortisol stress hormones. Thus, this good thing we call the internet feeds our emotions. The only negative thing about it, if we can't curb our addictions, we lose track of our in-person real lives. So, every so often close the computer. Call that friend and meet-up live. Go to local and regional networking events. I attended the National Center for Homeopathy Annual Conference this month during the 30-Day Blog Challenge.
I kept blogging right through the meeting, getting a little help from my friends about important topics. Working late into the wee hours of the night when slumber should have overtaken.
So busy reading other hubber blogs, especially laughing hysterically from Ewbie's satiric take on Panda-moan-dium effects from Google crawling restructure. Participating in the Forums, we can learn so much from those in the know. Due to all the Panda changes to google search engine and its effects upon the author mill communities, this hot topic needed a lighter touch from the infamous Ewbie, who hit 100% Rating on Hubpages. whoo-hoo!
The ups and downs go in wild swings. My profile rating reached its highest 95% at one point. Some discussions on the Feed revolved about Hubpages Ratings.
Relief Upon Finishing
The great feeling of relief comes with a lovely sigh, when removing the pressure to perform. Even though the pressure will be shifted to another area of work or play, self care and responsibility, hubpages will not feel so obligatory. Instead, I better clean my room! You do know Mother's Day is around the corner on May 8th, 2011.

Would You Do It Again?
Did you participate in this or any other Hubpages 30 Day Challenge? Would you do it again?
I should probably vote in the poll. Would I do this again? Not in the immediate future. I would have to be in a place where I felt it would greatly benefit me in some way. Physically, the experience was demanding and draining of energy. The challenge to come up with topics only created a bit of procrastination of selecting from so many ideas on a few days.
The final week, the fourth quarter was actually the easiest because I selected the Coffee Theme ahead of time. This gave me a group of subtopics to delve deeply into and learn more about this subject and form my own opinions. I enjoyed bringing all these ideas together under one roof. Although selecting the theme gave me the opportunity to focus and concentrate on this topic, it also took a good deal of research time to pull it all together, dragging out the work time into the wee hours of the night when I should have been sleeping. That's just another big excuse.
Learning How to Open Targeted Links
I noticed that the option to open links in a new window is not enabled anymore. If anyone has the insight as to what happened I would be glad to hear about it. In fact, I will now go write a new hub detailing how to create new link in blank targeted link. But, there must be an easier way.
