    Whilst I was taking part in the 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge, I had a new idea for a challenge which I would like to set myself, and I thought I would share it here in case anyone else would like to do it with me. I normally refer to the challenge as the 'Alphabet Challenge' - although better name suggestions would be welcome! Basically it involves writing 26 Hubs, not necessarily in 26 days if you don't want to, but the main theme for each Hub will correspond to a letter of the alphabet. For example A could be... appetite, and you could write about different ways to try and curb your appetite when you're dieting or something like that. The Hub title doesn't necessarily have to begin with the letter, but it should be the main theme of the Hub. I hope that makes sense! Let me know if you're interested in taking part, I'd love to see how you progress!

      I was just about to post my first hub to my second 30 in 30 challenge and saw your post- I'm doing an alphabet theme! If you end up doing the same, let me know so I can check it out

            If you wanted to, perhaps you could post a link to the challenge at the bottom? That way more people will see it and hopefully some more great Hubs will get written! It's completely up to you though, of course!

      This sounds like a very interesting challenge. I take it you have to start at A  and go chronological through the alphabet

        I guess that up's to you! I guess you could maybe mike a title page and tick off each letter as you complete it or something, but I don't think it would be necessary to go in alphabetical order if the ideas don't come to you that way.

            Awesome! Perhaps you could post links to the Hubs you write here so if other people are interested in doing the challenge they can see them as well?

      Rebecca, I love the idea, and I appreciate the feedback on my first hub as a newbie.  I will take that into account in my future hubs.

      I would love to join this challenge!

      Just thought you'd all like to know that I've made a Hub about this challenge. Primarily it will be a record of my progress and thoughts about the challenge, but I've also written some tips for new writers and will include a list of people taking part in the challenge, along with links to your profile page so that others can follow your progress! If you'd like to see the Hub, you can find it here

        Sure, feel free to start whenever you have the time. There's no time limit or anything so just update whenever you get ideas! Let me know when you publish your first Hub for this challenge and I'll add you to the authors list (though it might take me awhile as I'm away on the course and we need to get the internet fixed at home). I'm glad you're thinking about taking part, I look forward to reading your Hubs smile

      I know that this post is from 3 years ago. But, I think its a good idea. Rebecca2904, would you mind if I put a new post with this title to a freeform discussion?

    That's a great idea.  I'm not sure about 30 in 30 as i have limited time, but the alphabet challenge is a really good idea.  I think I may just do it.  Thanks for the idea.
