A case for joining any of the thirty day Hubchallenges

A good case for joining a 30 day hub challenge...

When I first joined the '30 day Hub-challenge' back in 2009 I knew I would very much tested having to produce a new Hub each an every day.

Up until that point in time I would at best produce one every say two weeks. Over the last few years I have enjoyed spending my time reading other peoples articles. Many of these Blogger's I feel sure would be cursing me for me being a serial commentator. Often I would post sarcastic, acerbic or disparaging comments about their point of view. In a way spoiling all their toil an hard work.

Given that I am currently studying Justice and Law at QUT the prospect of adding to my already heavy workload of reading, researching, and writing essays was daunting.

However the experience has been far from the misery which I predicted for myself.

Instead of wasting my downtime watching television soaps I now find that my mind is scheming and conjuring up the next hub in advance.

This is not to say it has been that easy.

During the challenge I was ready to call it quits as I realized that two legal assignments are due next week.

Instead of quitting I slept on it and actually look forward to making it through to thirty days at least.

I can honestly say it has been good for my mind. I felt more creative, more alert and more importantly more ready and confident at putting my thought s down on the keyboard. I f it stave's off Alzheimer's that's well and good. More importantly if it encouraged others to engage in producing more hubs that's even better. If it gets you away from a television set it has to be a good thing !

      I just completed my first 30 day challenge, not only was it a welcome challenge and fun to work on, but I have also seen a huge jump in my traffic. It is definitely worth trying.
