              While damaging yourself and your sub-domain with the other 50 hubs. If you find that acceptable, then I'm done explaining. sad

                I just see it as a fun challenge. I sit down and write everyday, not for money or to hit the top search engines,but  just because I enjoy writing. I love it. I have hubpages, Opuss, Facebook, and a few other accounts here and there where I post different stories that i'm working on all the time. A majority of my hubs, (excluding poems) are between 700-3000 words each, which I am proud of.

                Am I a great writer? No, but working at it everyday makes me better.

                Will I write the 100 hubs in 30 days? Maybe, I'll be happy and proud of myself if i do, if i don't, well i'll still have many more written peices to pick at and work on and add to.

                If all anyone can think about is making money, and writing stuff that hits the top search engines ect...then that doesn't sound very enjoyable to me, and they've lost the best reason to write at all.

    I have seen at least a half of dozen people attempt it in just over 2 years of being here.

    I've seen one person complete it, however, in doing so all half dozen people have one thing in common.

    They all traded quality of content for quantity of content.

    It's not recommended without a full strategy in place and understanding of quality. wink

    Couldn't you write a hundred hubs and then publish them all at the same time, would that count as cheating or strategic planning?

    I think that sounds like strategic planning to me.

    Before you try it, I suggest you read the section in the learning center about "flagship" hubs.  These are what HP is calling top quality hubs and appear to produce the best income.

    From memory, 1500+ words, excellent keyword research and topics, a variety of correctly attributed photos, other types of capsules such as map, quiz and/or polls.  Maybe a video or two.  And, or course, always with perfect grammar, spelling and correct information.  No opinion hubs.

    If you can write 100 "flagship" quality hubs in 30 days you have my vote as superwoman.  Or you can write 100 blogs of 300 words and waste a month doing it.  As Cagsil says above, the "blog" approach has been done before; the "flagship" approach, never.

    I could easily write 100 hubs in 30 days, but none of them would be quality hubs.

    If I stuck to 300/400 words on each, as some people do, then it's no bother at all. But you know, the search engines don't want 300 or 400 word hubs unless they are quality, researched hubs that bring something new to the web.

    You can hit lucky, but isn't it better to sit down and have a hard think about something that could do well, and write that instead?

    Two or three quality articles can bring you so much more traffic, than 100 'writings'.

    Save yourself the effort, unless you are only in it for the writing practice, and write fewer hubs that searchers are actually looking for.

    I agree with the comments here.  I've done the 30/30 challenge twice, and it was exhausting. I also felt the quality of the last few hubs each time suffered.  In my writing career, there were several months I wrote 60-70 news releases (all researched, all including quotes, and all at least 500 words).  But I didn't have to find photos or videos, research keyword-friendly titles, research and install maps or polls, etc.  The topics were available (I didn't have to look for ideas), and I had others on staff to help proof and edit. 

    There's a lot to consider when you aim for numbers - I'd go for quality, first.

    The hubs i write aren't really 'article' hubs. Some are I guess, I write mostly fiction and paranormal, poems and short stories. I do it because i love it!

      You can write about those things. No one is saying you cannot. The point we are all trying to stress is that quality suffers because pressure to complete the task. wink  That's all. We all want you to be aware of it. smile

      Even the most experienced Hubber would realize it requires a huge outlined strategy to accomplish the task you've set for yourself without losing quality content to quantity content.

    Cagsil, Izzy and others are trying to emphasize that you are sacrificing quality for quantity just to get that number '100' done.  What does that really accomplish?  Good luck to you...
