    I'm proposing the "12 Hubs of Christmas Challenge." Do 12 hubs between December 1st and midnight January 6th, 2015, All Kings Day. That's only about one hub every three days or two to three per week, but, hey, we are all really busy during the holidays. This challenge is designed not to let the writing get forgotten in all the hustle and bustle of the season.

    Commit to the challenge in this thread and we'll all check back in on January 7.  Of course, you can give project updates before then.

      This sounds like a wonderful idea. I would join if I wasn't having an infection problem with my eyes.

      I just saw that someone did this 5 years ago.  And did a poem too.  Alas, nothing new under the sun.  But still, it was five years ago.  it's time for another.

    Hello, nice to meet you in cyber space!

    I am a New writer here.  Hoping to break out of "Boot Camp".  I read this thread you posted, and I will try to rise to the 12 Hubs of Christmas Challenge.

    I know I am kinda late joining this challenge, but will try my best! Currently I have written 5 Hubs. Not sure how they are doing, keeping my fingers crossed that my writing is OK.

    Did we all complete the challenge? I am thrilled as I feel great! I have to confess one of my Hubs took on a life of it's own and ended up over 3,000 words, not sure if that is a bad thing or not.

      If you don't mind me giving you advice, you might be able to beak it into two hubs. It will be much more advantageous to you if it is two hubs. You can put them into a group and/or link to them.

        Thanks Catherine!  I am not sure if it would make sense if I split it up... perhaps I could get creative as it was a biography I did on Socrates.

          I took a look at it . A very ambitious and well done piece.  You are right about it all belonging together. Perhaps you could do life and philosophy as one hub and death in the other.  You just touch on the circumstances of his death and then do the details in the second hub where you recap a few of the major points of his life.  Or life and death in one hub and then a brief bio and detail about his writings in the 2nd.  I make this suggestion because I have sometimes crammed too much into one hub and I broke it into two and felt that it actually worked better that way.  But if you feel it doesn't work, trust your own judgment.

    You know Catherine, I have to thank you for taking the time for me and posting the suggestion. I will take your advice and split it into two.

    My intention with the article was to pepper it with "Taint" or "Expose" others to a few concepts that Socrates had that are not supportive of "family", or what we strive towards today regarding equality.

    At times when I look at Philosophy I am engaged but also angered as it clearly is a male dominated attitude that is portrayed. We are progressing, but I fear a little too slowly.

    I have only been a reader of HubPages until I moved recently, and decided to try my hand at writing here.

    Thank you once again for helping me out on this!
