Hub Challenge Diary

Updated on January 21, 2010


Unfortunately I failed to complete the challenge, as you can see when you read through this, too short, hub. Nevertheless I had a lot of fun doing it! And in the end, having fun is also important!

This is my ‘diary hub’ to keep track of my progress during the hub challenge. I hope to post each day an update, newest will be first/ on top. Have fun and thanks for giving me company in this journey ;-)

26th May 2009

Next one done, about a tiny island in Scotland where there are more deer than people living, check out Jura Scotland! Seems I made somewhere a little counting mistake and I have 'only' 20/90 hubs to go, rofl.

-26th May 2009

Limping behind schedule ;-( Just added one more hub to the challenge, now it is 22/ 92 to go, check out posterous for a new viral marketing way! SY

17-19th May 2009

Tempus fugit! But I managed a new Mac Mini related hub. If you want to dress your Mac Mini, or other electronic devices, up, check out Mac Mini Skins. 23/93 hubs to go ;-)

PS Just added one more, a rather personal one. Why is Christian bashing in? Now the score is 22/92 hubs to go.

15+16th May 2009

Somehow another day escaped me, but at least I got 3 hubs written today! So now it is 'only' 24/94 hubs to go, rofl. SY

13+14th May 2009

Just finished and published two more hubs. 27 or 97 to go *sigh*! I also added a link list to the right hand of this hub that lists all my 'Hub Challenge Hubs' Feel free to check them out! Now off to write the next hub! SY

12th May 2009

Busy with transferring files and settings from PC to Mac Mini, great hub material, but no time to write them. Why do things take always longer than expected? SY

11th May 2009

So I am crazy, again, and agreed to participate in the newest hub challenge. It is all about writing either 30 or 100 new hubs during the next 30 days. I think, realistically I will aim at >30 hubs, but I don’t see a fat chance that I’ll make it to 100. Btw, this is Hub No.1 ;-)

      I know, 2 hubs written until now isn't much and I will be out today the whole day, which doesn't help either - but will be fun! Do you think a Prague Zoo Photo Hub would be a success? SY

      Yes, it is a lot of work to write good hubs. I am still behind schedule/ target, lol, I get so easily distracted! SY

      Good luck with the challenge! I'm finding it harder than I thought to churn out the hubs - they need a lot of time in research and writing.

      I'll ad to this hub as I progress in the challenge, I always wanted to try out if hubpages would make good niche blogs ;-)


      I'll go for 30 first and than I see how much more I can do, 100 is a bit utopic for me ;-)

      LOL SY - that's a bit short don't you thnk - I thought I might acutally use my blog to update progress - I read somewhere that is what blogs are for - mine has barely been weekly so this will be a bit of a shock to the system!
