    Decided not to go with the HUb Challenge after all. If I end up doing 3o hubs eell hey ho. However the pressure is off. After all it is Summer and I do have a life smile
    Also I have yet to see any significant financial rewards which would make me want to be so prolific, unless I want to.

      We wish you well...even if us doing the hubchallenge have no life...and the financial rewards do take time and effort, but like Mellissa says, maybe another time maybe more convenient, I know sometimes about knowing what to write about, it may take time to research...anyhow good day and have a great summer!

      Ethel, you have a lot of Hubs anyway and you will enjoy writing more at your own working pace. Enjoy the summer. smile

      Ethel, you average 22 hubs a month already. (3 months/67 hubs).  When the time is right, you can jump back in again.  Enjoy your summer! You know you're one of my favorite writers.

      Your choice not t worry - but that rate you've been publishing great hubs at I really thought you'd do a really good effort at the 30 in 30!

      But not to worry - maybe next time

    You can go for the hubchallenge at any time you want.  If this time is not the right now, you can do it at another time.  Do what you feel is right.  I didn't really start writing a lot of hubs right away.  I may have published one or two when I started.  Walked away for a bit and then came back.  When you feel like challenging yourself, go for it.  Have fun trying to challenge yourself when you are ready that is.  We will be here when you are ready to cheer you on.  smile

    Ethel Smith I know how you feel. I've been routinely writing at least 1 hub a day for over a month. The day "the challenge" started I couldn't focus on anything for some reason. I might have to forget there's a challenge to get back to my old self.

    Such great comments guys which I do appreciate. I think just now I have a lot going on. I will keep writing at my haphazard pace which may mean that I end up doing 30 hubs, but without the definite total needed.
    You guys keep writing such great hubs anyway which means that I will never have time to read them let alone write any lol.
