Writing 100 hubs in 30 days is a major commitment of time.
I'm curious about where this time is coming from, and what you're NOT doing in your life while writing loads of hubs.
cheers, Eric G.
I was wondering that too, Eric! I thought I might go for the 30 Hubs in 30 days, but then I wondered, why? Even that is a major commitment for me, because I'm back in a full-time job.
It's not as if the Challenge will result in some magical increase in revenue - I'm sure my new Hubs will perform about the same as my other Hubs (or perhaps less well because I'm choosing subjects I might not otherwise). I think I may just go back to adding Hubs as the inspiration striks me!
I was thinking about this too...
I want to do it but I can't due to the fact I just don't have that much time or that much ability to be inspired. I have a list of about 20 hubs I want to write but...I had the thing for a few months lol.
My newest 2 and 2 of the old ones have been doing horrible compared to others...I need to not spend 2 hours writing something that tops off 50 views in 4 months...ugh.
Making sure my hubs I have now are currently seen and updated is my main focus, not creating 100 more. Thats 5 times more then I have!
I learned I need to try to pick out my topics a little more carefully.
I'm not watching TV and I'm eating less. Both good things
Let's see no TV, except for Letterman, less time wandering the internet aimlessly. I haven't really given up anything important. Just being more focused.
Which is showing me something about taking my internet biz to the next level.
I've been working myself towards 100+ articles a month anyway, and not necessarily just for HubPages. Though when dividing up the pie HP is getting more than the others.
Good topic Eric! I spent last month launched news sites so May was always going to be link building month anyway - I am just a bit more focussed on HP than I might have been. That said I found a new niche 2 days ago and now have 6 hubs on that - one of them is already getting search traffic so that will probably me a new site - next month!
I do do this full time but over the last month I have been doing less freelance writing and much more of my own stuff.
@Marisa - I have every intention of this producing me more money - and its nothing to do with "magic" :-) - in fact at the end of the month I will have an approximately the same number of hubs on my new account as my old account - I wonder how long it will take for the new account to make more money than the old lissie?
@thranax - the more hubs you have the more chances there are you will hit the jackpot - it is a numbers game - unless, like Misha (and hes the only one I know of ) you know EXACTLY what you are doing!
Ah yes, but you mention this is "link building" month - so are you expecting the Hubs themselves to make money, or are they only a means to an end?
Yes, that's the other thing about the challenge. Which is a more effective use of limited time - (a) writing a lot of Hubs, or (b) writing a few Hubs and then promoting them? Personally I don't really have time to do either, but my experience so far suggests (b) is the answer.
This challenge couldn't have come at a better time for me. I'm out of work right now due to back pain and you have no idea how much free time I have.
I haven't stop doing anything except sleeping. lol It's spring and once the days become longer, so do mine.
I haven't written in many years but the Challenge provided me an incentive to start again. Why not?
This sounds like a great challenge because all my shows are running their season finales this week.
I just hope my two year old decides to get on board.
Only 2 weeks to go until the madness ends :-)
I'm happy to say that I've got quite a bit of my book done during this time :-)
Hubpages is like a part time job to me. So if the boss suggests 100 hubpage artices in 30 days you go for it to get your merits.
Also, I like the idea of being part of a group effort and for Hubpage writers to get noticed on Twitter. My Twittering following base has increased significantly.
What am I not doing? Wasting my time as you can see by the number of hubpages I have written. Someone has already written the 100 hubs but the hubs did not seem to be lengthy so I am proud of my choice to write 4 hubpages a day.
The weekends have been getting in the way so now I must write 6 hubpages a day to be able to have a weekend. Today, I counted and noticed that I have written 50 hubs so I am on schedule with the production and 100 day challenge on hubpages.
I haven't gone to the bathroom in about a week and a half. This might cause some serious problems in the future...

I haven't been actively writing on Hub Pages in a while and want to get back into this and this might get me motivated.I remember hearing about a 100 hub challenge some years ago and I know that I could not possibly write 100 hubs in a month. That is why I am attempting to do this in a...

I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...

Yep, I'm going to be writing 100 Hubs in 30 days starting next Monday, May 11th. This might sound a little crazy (because it is), but I promise that I have a somewhat logical reason for doing it.So here's the story -- Yesterday I was surfing around the web, looking at some blogs that have been...

I've scrounged HubPages for this challenge as I posted one Sunday, one yesterday, and am working on what today. With only 20 hubs in the years I have been on here, I think it would be a great challenge. Is anyone currently undertaking this? Do you have any other advice?

I understand some people are worried about the "antiHubChallenge" or whatever it's called, and I just wanted to say something on a personal level to get my own thoughts out in the open about it. And this is my PERSONAL view - yes, we do have a HubChallenge team and we...

I'm somewhere between 'Can I do it?' and 'I'm gonna do it!'. Then throw in a bit of '...or die trying!'.Certainly not this month. Maybe not in a whole month. But I'll aim to publish them all by/on March 31.Watch thsi space.
