    ...on the challenge. It's a couple of hours after midnight PST, but it's 7:49pm Friday here in Australia.

    I've started doing my research as per my Game Plan.

    I'll be revisiting a few old friends (topics I've covered before), a few long overdue one offs (things I've wanted to cover and had grabbed URLs for but didn't get a start) and a whole new capstone series that I could almost complete in my own backyard.

      I'll try to follow your plan and see what I can learn on the way. Let's see how it goes.

    BAM! Got my first one out. Is anyone else going to do HubMobs too? Think it's a great way to cross-promote...smile

      It is - but I don't have the time with helping with the Challenge AND doing my own hubs (and of course running my own company!)

      I gav up on the hubmobs a while back but I'd encourage people to do them - I got some FANTASTIC ideas for hubs out of it that have gone on to be some of my best earners and traffic sources...

        Did someone mention the HubMob? 

        Great to hear that some of your best earners come from HubMob hubs.  You wrote some awesome Hubs there smile

      I was wondering if HubMob's counted towards this challenge!  Good to know that others are doing it to as I am almost finished with another one for this week  : )

        They certainly do. As well as Capstone hubs and Flagship hubs.

      ok, what is this HubMobs thing? I'm fairly new to this hubbing thing. I was turned on to it because I already write a daily e-mail, so this 30 day challenge is not so much a challenge as I already do that. Inspired or not, I write. What I'm not familiar with is blogging altogether. So HubMobs? 30 day challenge? What's the difference and what would you recommend a newbie take on?

        Hi Aida, this is the answer to what is a HubMob and how it works to help hubbers http://hubpages.com/hub/What-is-a-HubMo … -join-one.

        As for the HubChallenge you fill find all the info in these forums, it also aims to help hubbers get more views, increase their adsense revenue and learn how to build successful hubs.

    I've got 33 specific topics picked. Some are related themes.

    I'll narrow that down to 30 by the time I get to day 10 or 11 and start editing my content. Unless I, for some miraculous reason, manage to get ahead.

    Good job Nelle!   I managed to get 3 in today.  Hoping to get 6 more in by the end of the weekend....just trying to stockpile them a bit in case a day comes along that I can't get to it.  It takes a little pressure off (self-induced).

    I've got a couple of days up my sleeve as far as accessing the internet is concerned, next few days will be another matter though. So I grabbed all the URLs I'll be needing, except for two. The ones I want are gone, so I'll have a think about the next best alternative.

    Meanwhile I'm gathering my information, researching my topics. Hopefully I'll get most of it done before the crazy Monday and Tuesday I've got coming up, I should be able to start drafting the text documents on my Dell Mini while I'm away from home.

      Ryan Hupferposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I'm not sure if you're being serious or not, but it takes several days for your Hubs to begin to show results. Don't keep on looking at your stats, just keep up your pace and by the 30th days you'll have some serious momentum.

      Also, I'll take a look at your Hubs -- I'm curious to see what you're writing about.

        But, But, it's soo addicting to look at your Account page and see all the views and comments and all the statistics....I can't stoooopppp sad

        Need to join Stat Watching Addicts Annon; whose with me? lol It's been 2 minutes since I looked at my stats...my name is Richard and I'm an addict.

          Hopefully the novelty will wear off soon. Spend more time writing and publishing and check your stats once, maybe twice a day. But the less frequently you check them the bigger the wow factor. You see where I'm coming from?

          1. Richard Ring profile image58
            Richard Ringposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Definately; I think I like to multi-task too much so I'm always popping around on different topics. Novelty is starting to slow; thankfully.

              KCC Big Countryposted 8 years agoin reply to this

              I'm a lot like you.  That's why I have about 15 hubs going right now and I'll write on one for a bit and then write on another, then eventually I get several really close to completion and go on and finish them up. 

              I check my stats a lot, but the key is to not read too much into them.  It's like trying to lose weight and constantly checking the scale.  Just do what you gotta do and the results will happen.  It really is a snowball affect.

    3. darkside profile image80
      darksideposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I just checked one of your hubs. "Immoral Morbid Sexual Acts" sounded like a lot of fun, though I wasn't sure how Adsense would go with it. And I'm seeing ads for Criminal Law Firm and Divorce Settlement.

      But I'd avoid putting in the links to other non-related hubs in the middle of your content. Personally, I'll only link to a hub if it's of the same theme.

    Would appreciate any info as to how I get followers on twitter. I am doing the 30/30 challenge and I am following a few people, only one person is following me. My family does not have a desire for twitter. Thank You for any advice. sharonrenigar@att.net

    1. darkside profile image80
      darksideposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Don't worry about followers. A lot of people get caught up in wanting to have as many followers as they can and they quickly lose sight of what is important.

      Your audience is much bigger than those who are on your followers list. You'll have a much wider reach with hashtags.

      Here's two blog posts I made about Twitter in relation to my last HubChallenge:

    I don't worry about the followers to much.  They do come. As you write more and more, people will start following.  I hardly go a day now that anyone starts following me.

    I can still not understand how all of you can produce so many hubs in such a short time. My hub which I produced yesterday was on a subject in which I am engaged on a daily basis since more than 20 years. Nevertheless, some additional research and some photo shooting outdoors were enough to last over the whole afternoon (I almost got surprised by an awful thunderstorm while making the photos smile). I managed to spend the early evening just writing the text off-line and then the later evening putting all things into the capsules.

    And after doing this I feel quite exhausted for some time (this is the time to spend surfing around the many interesting hubs and forum contributions).

    Most of you will probably produce 2-4 quality hubs in this amount of time. Kudos to you.

    My goal is to produce maybe 2-3 hubs per month, but 30 would be unbelievable for me ...

      KCC Big Countryposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Everyone has a different style or technique.  When I started writing in October I would never have believed I could write more than 2-3 hubs a month either, but when you start doing it, you get better at it.  Your confidence increases, your skills improve, you learn to be more efficient, etc.  It's really a miraculous process/transformation that happens from just DOING.

      Just keep pushing yourself a little more each time (at your own pace) and you'll see.  I predict you'll be running circles around others in no time.
