Do you have the guts?
To commit to 30 days? Have you got what it takes?
Do you have the talent?
To make each and every one of those 30 hubs something to be proud of? Have you got what it takes?
Then challenge yourself to make 30 hubs in 30 days!
Find out more information about the 30 Hubs In 30 Days Hub Challenge here.
It hadn't crossed my mind that it had anything to do with guts!
Ability, yes. Commitment, yes. All subject to having the time available. Like many others, Hubpages is only part of my online activity. I am totally neutral about the challenge - good luck to those who participate, it just doesn't fit with my current goals.
I'm not sure if the first post helps the Hubpages community by suggesting that those who take part have "guts" and those that do not, are therefore "gutless". In fact I could suggest that those who choose to take part are those who need help with personal motivation, planning and short terms goals. But I won't!
Well, since you 'went there' anyway.....that hardly means much from someone with 30 hubs under their belt.
Darkside's 'guts' approach works for some people, some need that kind of push. If you're not one of them, don't worry about it. The message wasn't intended for you.
If I said 'good day' to you in person would you tell me all the reasons why it isn't? That there's famine and war happening somewhere else in the world. That natural disasters are occurring. That disease is spreading.
Lighten up. Grab yourself another one of those glasses of brew that you have in your profile avatar, kick back and enjoy. Even though drink driving claims the lives of innocent victims and alcoholism is a major cause for domestic violence.
Fascinating response! Make a well intentioned comment that methodically producing hubs may be more to do with time and planning than guts, and get an instant personality analysis and a lecture on the dangers of alcohol... Makes me smile! Where's that beer?
i'm reporting this for being spammy and over-promotional! Juust kidding XD
I had the guts to try, but i think i'm going to have to make it a 30 hubs in 50 days challenge because i couldn't bring myself to write this week
I just can't keep up!
Good Luck to everyone else that you don't end up in a similar situation to mine!
When I worked for AOL a few years back they had people whose sole job it was to inspire the rest of us on to greater heights, paid inspirer's, motivators, lots of 'we can do its' and 'go team, go's' read from cue cards, everyone hated those guys.
But enough of that negativity, 'Go Team, Go!'
I'd love to commit, Darky, but real life (and other sites I maintain) stretched me too thin. But I will do what I can to put out a few more hubs this month. In fact, I have some really good topics in the works ... some more hubbing 101, some more Writing 101, and a few surprise topics. Now all I need is time to write them all.
*I gotta hire me a ghost writer - lol!*
**Note to self: be careful not to omit important commas ... as you darned near said ya wanted to commit Darky - bad, Yoshi, bad!**
I have the guts and, as luck would have it, I have quite a bit of time on my hands at the moment. This should be a challenge for someone who has barely written 30 hubs in over a year and a half. I'll be gathering up some topics, and entering soon.
Well, yeah, I'm innit awreddy....
Really just Posted to say: Eric, that is a cool Avatar!
Darkside, I believe its more a matter of time than guts.
We all have time issues. I work fulltime, have a family to take care of (no small children) AND write fulltime. It's all about priorities for YOU.
You have to remember that the Challenge is aimed at those who WANT to take the Challenge, if you don't want to, that don't get offended when we put the Challenge out there. No need to apologize, no need to make excuses. The challenge isn't for you. Honestly, we aren't taking names to see who is or isn't so that we can think differently about the people who did or didn't.
Are you darkside?
Did I ask you what do you have to do all day long bla bla?
I am already taking the challenge... I wonder who let you out so that you would talk t others on forums in an insulting way.
For some reason my opening post was regarded as being insulting anyway, that I was insinuiting that some people are gutless. So I'm pointing out the silliness in dissecting everything I've said, by being silly and dissecting the 'message' he is broadcasting.
And for some it will be guts. About it being a challenge. Some people will have all the time in the world, they need to be challenged. They need to be 'dared'. They need the motivation to push them out of their comfort zone.
Last time I put my hand up for 100 in 30 days. I certainly did not have the time. But a determined effort saw me manage to complete 30.
I am 5 days old, 6 hubs. i will amke it 40 hubs 30 days
Sorry, i hadnt read your article at first, but i may enter the challenge
Ok, let us take my beggining date, 5 days ago. Now all of count upto 30, you are gonna see magic
Sidenote: For others reading this thread, if you're not competing in the 30 Hubs In 30 Days Hub Challenge I am not implying that you lack guts and/or talent.
I am in DS, now what do I do? Tody is day 10 right? Just start writing and publishing? Kind of exciting, this is my first one
I have the guts My brain went on standstill for a few days. I guess I'm not use to writing with a "deadline". But, new ideas have emerged into my head & I'll be writing them today...well, unless the beautiful weather draws me outside
I don't and happy with this
On a side note, shouldn't this be under 30DC forum?
The point was to promote outside of the 30DHC forum and expose the message to people who have so far not ventured that far down the forum mainpage.
Though I almost mistook myself for having accidentally posted it in the Religion or Politics sub-forums.

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...

When the March Q&A Contest was announced and there was mention of daily drawings for hubs, I had the idea that it was the perfect time to try out the HubChallenge with the added bonus of using Questions to inspire my writing. Last night when I should have been in bed it dawned on me that March...
