Oh My Goodness! I Have Written 50 Hubs

Updated on July 24, 2013

This is My 50th Hub!

I am pleased to announce that this is my 50th hub!! I am sitting here in stunned amazement as I write this down. I joined hubpages 2 months ago and my original plan was to write about 2 or 3 hubs for the month. I was happily going along thinking that I would be doing well if I was able to write 10 hubpages by the end of the year. However a couple of things happened during the month of June 2009 which spurred me on to write write write.

Setting Challenges And Goals -The 30 Hubs in 30 Day Challenge and The 100 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge

I was reading a post on a blog explaining that a challenge had been set to write 30 hubs within the space of 30 days. That breaks down to one hub a day. Crazy I thought. How would anyone find the time to write all that stuff, let alone find interesting topics to write about. I commented on a few people’s pages wishing them good luck and I intended to watch from the sidelines.

Then I read that someone else had decided that they were going to try and write 100 hubs in 30 days in order to see if money could be made using this platform. Now I thought, this guy is either insane or he has a band of writing ninjas working diligently for him.

In the end several people took on the challenge and that was the beginning of a writing frenzy. I read a lot of good stuff that was produced. I am also very pleased to say that I provided one hubber with an idea for an article. By the end of the 30 days a lot of people were able to successfully reach their 30 hub target but very few achieved the 100 hub goal.

Why I Decided To Step Up My Own Writing Ambitions

What really got me motivated to write more was reading the progress reports that a blogger called Ben wrote at make money online with seo. He set about the task of finding good keywords and good topics to write about. His aim was to find out how much money he could generate within the 30 days. He stepped up his own challenge by increasing the number of hubs he wanted to write to 200 in 30 days.

I have to say that his blog posts were inspirational. They were so detailed and good humoured that his energy was infectious. By the end of the 30 days he had written over 250 hubs (not to mention the number of ezine articles as well as his epic blog posts) and earned a good sum of money from adsense and eBay. I thought that if he could do it then why can’t I? He has a full time job and still managed to produce copious amounts of stuff online.

My Personal Hubpage Writing Challenge

So my mini challenge to myself is to create my own 100 hubs in as short a time as possible. I am now at the halfway line and am very pleased with my achievement. I have already done far better than I had expected. The important thing to remember is that it is no good just thinking about doing something, you have to take action.

I know that I was afraid of failing so I couldn’t even contemplate such a mammoth task of creating so many hubs in such a short space of time but I am taking it one day at a time and I am writing as much as I can.

This hub was actually written while sitting on the train on my way to work. I usually read a book or one of the free newspapers but I have found that I have been able to write one or two articles during my journey. Once I get to work I type everything up (let’s hope the boss doesn’t notice) and I put together my hubpage when I get home in the evening.

So – 50 hubs done – 50 hubs to go. Bring it on.!

    Thanks TTC,

    I checked out your website. Wow, at least you are making $100 a month. as for me, i am still in the $35 dollar a month range. Trying to figure out what to do next to move up the ladder a little faster. My adsense making site has been up for a year and only within the last 2 months, after tweaking it, did i begin making $35. I don't have any backlinks and I'm a little afraid to do that step.

    thanks for making your experiment available for us to follow.

    Okay, so the goal is 50 hubs or 100 in 30 days. Is there a monetary goal at the end? Or is writing the hub the ultimate goal in the end?

    just wondering if you're monetizing on adsense or other programs. if so, are you making money? are you on any google first pages? These seem to be the reason most hubbers, bloggers and others desire when I read their online info.

    What's your main goal?

    @thelittleprince - thanks for stopping by. Pevonia hubs were some of the ones that I did first.  I just went to check my earnings from them - absolutely nothing!! lol. Unfortunately the ads for the product don't appear on the page, which is a shame cos the adsense sounded good.  Oh well, you live and learn.

    Best advice I could give is to write some hubs specifically for money and write some for fun so that you do not get bogged down. The money hubs can tend to be boring topics but once you see a little money it certainly helps to motivate you.

    Good luck with your own challenge. I look forward to reading your hubs.

    Nellie Hoxie........thanks for your comment. It is definitely true that seeing others achieve the goal of writing many hubs proves that it can be done. So I just had to make the decision to actually do it for myself. Congrats on your own mini challenge and good luck with making another 50 hubs.

    Still a little to early too early to see any revenue but I am optimistic.

    Good for you! I think the Hub Challenge showed a lot of us that we could do more than we thought. I finished 50 hubs in the month of May, which was my goal. I'm now working on another 50 for June. And in my case, I'm pleasantly surprised at the increase in revenue. Hope you've had a similar increase as well!
