Karanda’s Second Attempt at the 30 Hubs in 30 Day Challenge
Will the Challenge Help Me?
How will the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge help me? Is it a good idea? When I discovered this question, asked by Matthew Rogerson, I knew instantly that the only way to find out was to have a go at the challenge myself. This is my second attempt but this time I am determined to complete my goal, for Matthew’s sake as well as my own.
I am so glad Matthew asked the question as I would not have known he existed otherwise. Turns out, after checking his profile and a couple of his Hubs, he has a lot to say and says it well. I encourage anyone to have a read. In my opinion, this is a young man with much potential.
10 Hubs Completed
Before I attempted my second 30 hubs in 30 days challenge, I decided to be a little more methodical in my approach. When I think back now to my first pathetic attempt at the challenge, I don’t understand what was in my mind at the time. All I could manage was successfully finishing eight articles only, pathetic.
I am normally well organised, at least when it comes to working for others. It is almost as if I turn my mind into a compactus. But with my first attempt in the challenge I simply threw caution to the wind and decided to write whatever popped into my mind. Well, the result was not much as it turns out.
Second time round, I realised the first step was to think about writing for specific categories. I figured I would need six all up and write five articles in each category giving me the grand total of 30 hubs. Truth be told, this was not really my idea. I had read the suggestion in the 60 day challenge that all the prolific Hubbers had been working their way through. But it made sense.
January 2011, the first month of a brand new year and I began with gusto in my writing challenge. What a difference a day makes, or in this case, a year. With the beginning of the year came the HubPage contest on Personal Finance. This was a topic that I felt I could write a lot about so my original plan for six categories changed to four.
Now all I have to do is fill in the blanks. Hah, easy, not. Already 18 days into the month and I am a long way from my initial goals. Basically I will now need to publish two hubs per day, every day for the rest of January.
Of course, my true motivation in taking on this challenge is for the new shoes. I love shoes and it doesn't matter how many pairs sit in my wardrobe, it's never enough. If this challenge helps to increase traffic and subsequently earn more money to buy shoes then I am going for it!
Wish me luck; I think I’m going to need it.
Mama Always Needs New Shoes
There are a couple of pairs of walking shoes on Amazon that I have my eye on. Well priced, too. When I write the update for my next 10 Hubs I have big plans for checking out the dress shoes. You know, dainty toe line, just a smidgeon of a heel, perhaps a pair in black, red or both. If it goes well, I might even be able to buy one in every colour.
Come and Join the Fun
