That's All Folks!
Hooray!!!!!!!!! 30/30 Is A Done Deal.
So in the inimitable style of Porky Pig.........'That's all folk's', as this is the the last article in the 30/30 Hub Page Challenge.
I think I should now share my experience of the last 30 days with you in the hope that I can motivate you to do the challenge.
This challenge was initiated as you may well know by Ardie and BelaM along with myself.Just as well we got together as the support we gave each other really helped. Almost daily motivational comments through Facebook allowed us to communicate about our progress.
The best bit of advice to anyone thinking of doing the challenge has to be to get yourself a challenge cheerleader. If you tackle it alone it could be a lonely place to be. Doing it alongside a friend makes it more competitive and gives a sense of team spirit. Obviously you don't want to be the one in the team who flunks out. Equally you don't want your team mates to fail either, so you help each other along when the going get's tough.
When the going get's tough
And believe me it does get tough. My tough stage came around day 7. The thought of another 3 weeks of daily ramblings was a daunting thought. However, I was enjoying the experience. Working twelve hours a day, coming home, having a meal then settling down for the next instalment of this gruelling challenge.
Never once did I think that I wouldn't complete or that I didn't have enough material to do 30 hubs. Material wasn't a problem. During the first 2 weeks of the challenge I was bitten by a dog, my wife was threatened with redundancy at work and part of my time had to go to the campaign to stop the redundancies happening. As you will recall if you have been keeping up with the story of my challenge there was good news at the end as she kept her job after winning the campaign. The third week of the challenge I was attacked whilst driving my van at work by a kamakazi Pheasant. In the forth week of the challenge I was offered promotion at work. So much happened whilst doing the challenge that you couldn't make it up if you tried.
Needless to say all the happenings provided the raw materials I needed to get this job done. A better source of material I could not have wished for.
Prior to starting the challenge and in preparation for it I made a list of hubs I thought I might like to write for the challenge.I made a list of 40 and used just 4 of the original titles.
You guessed it, I still have enough fodder to do it all again.
Not a chance at the moment.

A final thanks to Tracey, my better half for putting up with the silent treatment whilst I have had to concentrate on the challenge to see it through. Normal service should resume as soon as possible.XXXXXXX
