    Besides myself, are there any 'new' hubbers doing the challenge right now?

    Karpouzian, not sure what I can offer. I have the basic Hub and SEO stuff pretty well checked off, but not the advanced. But feel free to contact me directly through my profile. I'll help in any way I can. And congrats for taking the plunge!

    I admire your pluck! I have been here 11 months, and have not done one yet, I feel I may start soon now though. If you can do it from scratch, then I feel I should give it a go.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Todays my first day :-D I allready have five hubs, they were all ideas I was thinking about befour hand. They are doing OK so far big_smile Should be fun sticking to the challenge he he he

      I think you need to check out some other people's hubs and see how yours compare.  Visitors don't like empty white space, and one of your hubs has a comments box stuck in the middle of the article.

      You also post YouTube links as links, instead of using the video capsule.

      I'm trying to be helpful - your scores on these will suffer if you don't try to tidy them up a little.  Then you might have more success.

      Take Julie-Ann's advice, it's right.  Darkside has written some excelent Hubs on How to use Capsules.   You should study it carefully before you write any more Hubs, it will save you a lot of revising later.

    I took on the Challenge as a new Hubber 4 days ago. I'm behind one Hub! If I don't do it by midnight I shall have to make at least two tomorrow... ha!

    Onward Scribes! smile
