Half Way Through the 100 Hubs in 30 days Challenge

Updated on October 3, 2011

100 Hubs in 30 Days


An Update

So I am officially half way through the 100 hubs in 30 days challenge and I am a bit a head of schedule. But I do have the 50 hubs complete as of now which is half of the 100 needed to complete the challenge. It is a bit more difficulty then I expected. While I wrote as the whim hit me before now I have to force myself to make certain I get up and write each day. This challenge takes a bit of planning. After I am done writing each day I sit down and plan what I am going to write the next day. I often pcik up images i will need for my articles and do a bit of research before bed. Then when I wake up I go back through my notes and I write what I think is relevant and prudent and I disregard what I feel is not going to make a good hub.

If you read my work you might think I don't disregard any topic but I do. There are many many things which I do not write on hubpages.

What Does It Take To Write 100 Hubs in 30 days?

First you have to be organized. You have to block out time to write each day and let nothing interfere with that plan. Just sit and write.

Second you have to have idea about what you plan to write. This can be rather elaborate or it can simply be a rough outline. The choice is yours. I don't like to go to bed until I have ten outlines completed for the next day of writing.

Third, you have to have endurance. It takes 5% inspiration and 95%perspiration so be prepared to sweat.

Fourth you have to set goals and obtain them. Goals need tobe set for the day and for the week. It is making the little steps that lead to the great leaps and strides we make in our lives. So make certain you make the little goals to obtain the giant goals.

Fifth is sheer determination. Let nothing stop you. You can find a thousand reasons not to be successful but none of them will make you successful. There is only one way to be successful and that is to write your heart out.

Sixth, play classical music while you write it will help your thoughts flow fluidly and it will will also help you pace your thinking and key strokes.

Seven, take a break. I knwoit is a challenge no time for a break. But mathematically your productivity goes done the longer you work. So take a walk. Take a shower and eat something. You'll never make it if you don't know when to take a break. The key to the breaks is never let them last longer then 30 minutes and then get back to work.

Finally show gratitude whenever you complete your challenges to all those who walked the journey with you especially your followers through reading their work and taking interest in what they have to say about the world. Your followers are your best source of inspiration as they are mine.

So eight simple techniques to write a 100 hubs in 30 days. Follow these practices and you will be successful.

      Hi debie roberts,

      It is the same as training for a marathon. It is a mater of mind over matter. I doubt I would be to keep up with you in a marathon. We each have our strengths and weakness.

      Keep at it and you will go much further on Hubpages then you ever dreamed. I know you have the persistence, endurance and the sheer determintion along with the talent as well.

      Hi Eiddwen,

      Always wonderful to hear from you and thank you so much for the support. I must admit it has been a bit challenging.

      If you do decide to do it. Plan your hubs in advance and your outlines in advance. I wish I had done that as it would have made the process so much easer.

      I have about 25 more to go and I am just plugging away at it now. Some of the hubs I write I like a lot and some not so much but that is never an indicator of what my audience likes. So I have committed to completeling these 100 hubs in 30 days and I will do it. But towards the end it is exhausting.

      Thanks for the vote up and I wish you luck if you take the challenge. Thanks for following I appreciate it and I follow my followers loyally as well.

      All My Best, Good Day to You as Well And Cheers!!
