I am new here but am challenging myself to write 7 hubs in 7 days on 7 different topics. I am hoping to broaden my writing skills, keep things interesting and force myself to write out of my comfort zone.
Anyone wish to join me??
I'll take you up on that challenge. I've been thinking about doing a challenge for a while, but something always held me back. I think I just have to go for it. It'll be fun. Writing about different topics will keep it interesting. When do you want to start? After the holiday weekend?
I actually started yesterday but you can start at any time. I might go for 10/10/10 if I make the 7/7/7. I posted two recipes yesterday and wrote a third hub that I need to proof read today before posting. I tend to over think things and don't like to publish until it is just so. I am hoping the challenge will help me get a handle doing them and quickly moving on.
I just finished a hub last night on separation anxiety. So, I'll just say I started last night. Ha-Ha. Sounds like you are off to a good start. I'll have to catch up. Thanks for the motivation. Should we post our 7 in 7 hubs here?
LOL. Sure, we can motivate each other to finish.
Well, here's my 1in 7 on child development. Hope it's okay I'm posting it here.

Ok, I squeaked in just before midnight. I had one done and was ready to post it then learned a valuable lesson....you don't post gardening hubs at the END of the summer!! So I moved on to upcoming holidays, which lead to Thanksgiving, which led to the idea for a centerpiece. I am so not the crafty type so was surprised this popped into my head. I will have to try it with my kids so I can add a picture!
It sounds like my evening. First I thought about writing a hub about how to do a kid-friendly craft. I even took pics, but then I tossed the idea. Then I thought about writing about my pets, but I wasn't inspired. I started thinking about cooking recipes, housecleaning tips, poems, kid stories...this went on for a while. What did I end up writing on; a makeup review. Done them before. Blah! I promised myself I'll be more creative next time. Oh well...
Can't wait to read your hub. I'll do it now.
I know I'm a month out of the loop, but I just read your hub on preschool separation anxiety & left a comment for you.
Current thinking seems to be that a subdomain such as ours will do better if it concentrates on a particular niche.
Not sure if it is actually true - many hubbers (including myself) write on a wide range of topics. Something to think about, though, as you immediately spread topics all over your new subdomain.
Thanks for the suggestion. Well, I think I'll try writing 7 hubs on different topics just to build my creativity. Maybe writing something completely new will lead to new sources of inspiration. I appreciate the heads-up though.
I've read the "pick a niche and write it to death" suggestion on here. The only problem is it may be the death of me!! Lol. It's extremely boring. I write topic specific copy for clients all day long so it is nice to write something just because. Plus the two recipe hubs I did yesterday resulted in my writing two other articles today on topics that came to me while I was doing them. It should be interesting if nothing else.
Unless Paul Edmondson has updated his findings. He has stated a few times that subdomains with lots of different topics do just fine. It doesn't seem to be one of the determinants of success.
Good for you! I'm all for multiple topics but remember one thing. If you get followers off of those hubs then you will want to write more on those topics later to keep people who follow you reading. I write on several different topics and I have to basiclly take turns on which topic I will post about. Followers can be quite helpful while getting google traffic established. Good Luck!
Hello everyone! Can I join too? I'm a new come back. Yesterday was my first day after been gone for two years. I was able to publish one hub yesterday and one today. I guess I'm up for the 7 hubs in 7 days challenge starting tomorrow.
Welcome back His Princesz! Sounds like you're ready for the challenge. Can't wait to read your hubs.
Of course the more the merrier! I am glad we inspired you to come back. Heeheehee.
I'll be watching this thread with interest. To specialise or generalise is a good study point
I would prefer to write 7 hubs on the same niche or about something that you know very well.
That is fine, feel free to join in and post them here.
I think this is true. Specialisation is most effective way to add value as a general rule.
Just found this great hub from SMCopywrite. I think she "gets" the reason behind this challenge. In the scheme of things I don't think writing 7 hubs out of your niche will end your hub writing/money generating career. For me it has been about writing outside my comfort zone. I will be posting a hub of what I've learned, the positives and negatives of it all, when I am done with the challenge.

Day 1-Child Development (http://teachablemoments.hubpages.com/hu … on-Anxiety)
Day 2- Beauty Review (http://teachablemoments.hubpages.com/hu … -30-Review)
Working on topic #3. Perhaps a craft idea. Not sure. Good luck to all.
Good Job Teachable!
I have to go check your newest hub out. I got in two on the first day just in case I miss a day over the holiday weekend.

Wow, go Christine!! I have some reading to do. Very interested in reading your latest hub. My family has suffered the effects of suicide. One tried, one succeeded. Glad you're bringing more awareness to the topic. Think I'll have to gear up for that one. Great job!!!
Here's my hub for tomorrow. I figured I better post it today. You never know what the weekend might bring. I enjoyed this one. Something different.
Topic-Arts & Crafts
http://teachablemoments.hubpages.com/hu … t-For-Kids
I'm also going to include my hub for Sunday. Not too sure about this one. I haven't written a poem for a long time. Thought I would give it a whirl again. Yikes, it's hard submitting this one. Be kind.
You inspired me to do a product review.
http://christinemiranda.hubpages.com/hu … ake-Review
Just finished your 5th hub. So, you've completed 5 out of 7, right? Great job.
Love this challenge. I feel more creative and I'm meeting other writers outside my usual stomping ground.
Here's my first Hub - 1 down of the 7/7 Hub Challenge
http://hisprincesz.hubpages.com/hub/You … offee?done
Here goes my hub for tomorrow.
Day 5- Topic: Party Ideas for Children
http://teachablemoments.hubpages.com/hu … gh-Recipes
Have a great Labor Day!
That's great TeachableMoments! I am still working on my next article.
Topic- Zoo Animals & Zoos
One more to go!
Congratulations TeachableMoments! You are almost there!
I'm currently working on the 4th.
Good luck with the 4th.
Well, I just completed my 7th hub. That completes my 7 in 7 hub challenge. Phew! I cannot imagine doing the 30 in 30, but you never know.
Topic- Paper Creations
OK. My last two.
I was out of town Sunday & Monday at a family members house on a lake. No internet access. I actually wrote the "What to do before you write your first hub" on my Blackberry on the 3 hr ride there. lol.
So this challenge was fun. I agree 30 in 30 would be tough. I will have to read everyone's hubs tomo.

Hello everybody! here's my # 3 of 7, Four more. I'm a little behind.

Congratulations to both of you, Christine and Teachable for completing the challenge. Here's my 4th Hub. http://hisprincesz.hubpages.com/hub/How … tist-Chair
I've been busy lately so I have to work hard to publish 3 hubs tomorrow.
Hello guys! I'm sorry I wasn't able to complete the 7/7 Hub challenge. I finished the fourth:
http://hisprincesz.hubpages.com/hub/How … tist-Chair
My schedule is tight and I don't want to compromise the quality of my articles just to finish the race. I started my fifth last night but I don't think it's done already. Good job to all of Teachable and Christine!
I have to work early today. See you around guys!
I too am challenging myself to write 7 hubs in 7 days. However I want to stick to marketing since my aim is to provide content which will add value. For me to do that I need to be really familiar with that topic. I will write outside my comfort zone once I have accomplished this.
I inadvertently did this in under 48 hours:
Popularity: the art of being awesome ~ http://momkat.hubpages.com/hub/Populari … ng-Awesome
End of the World: Survival kit ~ http://momkat.hubpages.com/hub/End-of-t … rvival-Kit
Early Poetry By Mom Kat ~ http://momkat.hubpages.com/hub/Early-Poetry-By-Mom-Kat
Recycling Crafts: Egg Cartons ~ http://momkat.hubpages.com/hub/Recyclin … gg-Cartons
Restoring my old Photographs ~ http://momkat.hubpages.com/hub/Restorin … hotographs
What they leave behind (a tribute to my great grandmother) ~ http://momkat.hubpages.com/hub/What-they-leave-behind
Easy Homemade Pasta By Hand ~ http://momkat.hubpages.com/hub/Easy-Hom … ta-By-Hand
Maybe when I'm finished with my 30 in 30 (I'm only on day 3 of that) I'll do this one again, but on purpose
I also wrote one about day 1 of the 30 in 30 challenge & another on mental illness: http://momkat.hubpages.com/hub/What-doe … -look-like
if I counted everything I've done in the past 7 days, it would be 14 completed hubs (but my day isn't over yet)
Holy Crap! I wish I could inadvertently do that. I am in the middle of a hub now. Cant wait to read your hubs. Good job and thanks for sharing.

Well, summer is fast approaching here in sunny Florida, so I've been busy clearing as much area as possible to grow an organic garden. Florida betony, by the way, has an ubiquitous root system! Today I'm feeling a little fatigued, and if any of you have casually checked my Facebook posts, you'll...

Since I haven't written here for over four weeks I want to establish a writing routine again. I find it difficult to establish a routine unless I make it official. So to get going with writing hubs again, I am embarking on a new HubChallenge. I am asking everyone to join! Why? By the end, we should...

Is it better to write hubs all in one niche or write about different things?So far, I have 13 Hubs published. I have been jumping around on topics, writing about what I am inspired to do some research on that day. I do have several focused on drug addiction, though. I wonder, is it better to write...

I started writing for HubPages in November 2011, so I'm still going through the learning curve. I write hubs about beauty tips for women 40 years of age and older.I've noticed while reading other Hubber's articles, that sometime a person will write about different unrelated subject...

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs, some of which were HOTD. My earnings in the last week are [redacted] ...

Writing has always been my way of talking when no-one is listening so finding HubPages is as good as picking up the phone and knowing there is someone on the other end of the line.My problem is that I have so much to write about I don't know what my niche is or if I even want one. What do you think...
