When I first joined HP, I thought I read about challenges and contests as incentives to hubbers. Since I have been here (4 months), I don't recall seeing anything like that. Have I missed something or have those gone by the wayside?
You got me. And I read the Weekly Nuggets email. HP usually runs a Recipe Contest or two along the way and some type of challenge for hubbers to write X-number of hubs in a certain time. In four years, I have NOT fared well in any of their challenges or contests. I have not been a Rising Star or have a Hub of The week.
So do not let my truthful answer dilute your attitude. Your next hub might be the one that propels you into the spotlight.
At least that is what I pray.
They do happen from time to time. Like Kenneth, I haven't found them to be useful in improving earnings so I don't bother with them.
I was more interested in them as something fun to do. It seems like they increase the social aspect of the site.
They used to run them once a quarter, but now they don't happen as often.
