Caitlin Goodwin MSN, RN has ten years of nursing experience and is a collegiate educator.

The Rules

  • I will post 30 blogs in 30 days for the month of April 2018.
  • I will track my overall hub score.
  • I will track each articles hub score.
  • Did the post get accepted by a niche site?
  • I will post the page views of each article.

Is 30 Hubs in 30 Days Relevant?

Once upon a time, the more articles and posts you had, the more income you could generate. In this day and age with the Google changes, content is king.

Is a challenge that focuses on output like 30 hubs in 30 days pointless in this era? Can you write quality articles when you are focusing on quantity? After all, my goal is to get as many articles on a niche site as possible.

This log will journal my journey to writing 30 hubs in 30 days. When the challenge is complete, I will summarize the results.

Challenges

I know that many of you experience the same challenges: work, family, and your busy home life provide a valid excuse to avoid adding to our hubs. My goal is to overcome all possible obstacles.

Will it be perfect? I may not write an article every day if I have a sick kid or work a double shift. However, I will try to write two quality articles on the days I am free.

I am a busy mom of three children including a toddler and an autistic son. I am also a working professional who wears a lot of hats as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse.

While this gives me plenty of hub fodder, it may give me road bumps along the way in this experiment.

The Hubs

April 1, 2018- Article One:

How Pregnancy Effects the Pelvic Floor and What to do Postpartum

Profile Hubscore: 95

Article Hubscore: 82

Niche Site: Yes, We Have Kids.

Average Daily Views: 6

The Inspiration: I did research on this for a potential freelancing project. I have been caring for women in pregnancy and postpartum for nearly ten years. Most other developed nations provide women with pelvic floor physiotherapy and/or detailed education. It's tragic that our nation tends to ignore pelvic floor health and crack jokes about "peeing when we sneeze". This article is an attempt to shine a light on what happens during pregnancy and what we can do after!


April 2, 2018- Article Two:

Does Acute Ischemic Stroke Require Routine Imagery at 24 hours?

Profile Hubscore: 96

Article Hubscore: 69

Niche Site: No.

Average Daily Views: 1

The Inspiration: After my grandfather had a stroke, I was struck by the amount of imaging that he had following the attack. After getting the bills, it was overwhelming. Years later, I read a really powerful study stating that routine imaging may not be necessary. This article is the result.


April 7, 2018- Article Three:

What are the Mental Health Benefits of Exercise?

Profile Hubscore: 95

Article Hubscore: ?

Niche Site: ?

Average Daily Views: ?

The Inspiration: I care for women in the throes of postpartum depression. I am passionate about providing education about mental illness and breaking the stigma. While I strongly believe in the power of medication, I also encourage lifestyle changes. This article is about the power of physical activity and it's incredible effect on our brain!


April 7, 2018- Article Four:

How Do Caregivers Promote Their Client's Health?

Profile Hubscore: 96

Article Hubscore: ?

Niche Site: ?

Average Daily Views: ?

The Inspiration: I have been working with an amazing company that provides aftercare phone calls to clients who have been discharged from nursing facilities. The recurring obstacle that I hear about is that caregivers feel unprepared and overwhelmed. My goal is to provide resources to encourage the caregiver to feel more comfortable.



Week One Thoughts

As week one draws to a close, I am a little overwhelmed. I anticipated missing a day or two, but I am already three days behind! I need to begin writing two articles a day for several days while maintaining all aspects of life.

I am nervous that my quality of articles is already beginning to suffer. I hope that this further push for articles doesn't further compromise their content.

      Hi Caitlin, I've been absent from HP for FOREVER and am considering doing a hub challenge next month to give my earnings a boost. The 30/30 was tough back in the day, but with today's quality standards it's a real beast! Hang in there and be gentle with yourself. The point is to put up more content, help your readers and boost your earnings. If you can accomplish that, then you've succeeded! Good luck!

      It's easy to fall behind, but staying positive is key.

      If you think some of your articles suffered in quality near the end of April, you could go back through and revise for quality during the last few days (or first week of May).

      This could also allow you the chance of gaining additional statistics on revising articles. :)
