How far are you in the challenge?

    20 Hubs in 17 Days.

    I'm considering starting another 30 in 30 when this one is done.

    I'm caught up, 19 on day 19. I'm also thinking of continuing to write a hub a day for as long as I can.

      Congrats - I am just getting started but my goals is eventually to hit the four hundred plus hub area - and just keep getting valuable backlinks to them to drive traffic. This is one of the best out in the open hidden secrets on the net!

      Have you started to see increased traffic, revenue? any changes? You've been here a bit longer than some of us, so I was wondering if your results would be as dramatic.

  3. darkside profile image81
    darksideposted 8 years ago

    Zero so far.

    Well, zero published. I've been working on my content since I kicked off my challenge about 3 weeks ago. Trying a different tactic.

    I'm happy with my work thus far.

    1. karpouzian profile image60
      karpouzianposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      And really, that is the most important thing.
      Are you thinking of letting them all 'age' and them publishing them at once?

  4. KCC Big Country profile image88
    KCC Big Countryposted 8 years ago

    Unless I'm screwed up on counting (and I could be)...today, being the 12th is the 20th day if you started the 24th.

    Day 1 24th of July
    Day 2 25th
    Day 3 26th
    Day 4 27th
    Day 5 28th
    Day 6 29th
    Day 7 30th
    Day 8 31st of July

    So add 8 days to whatever day in August it is....today is the 12th.  That makes 20. 

    I have published 31 hubs.

    I suppose I can try. I've been invited and it's polite to accept, even though I'm pressed for time. May I include the hubs I've written yesterday and today? Five so far I think. They are not that hard to do. Okay - have I joined by doing this? Cannot see a join button.

    I didn't make it.  Didn't even come close.  Oh, well.  I'll start over and see how I do.  What a crummy time to get writer's block.

    I will post my 9th later. I'm waaay delayed. But happy with the results. 2 of the 8 already published are HubNugget Wannabes, so I'm chill! smile

      Doh, I did it again. I was assuming the challenge ended this Thursday since I started on a Friday. We have 8 more days including today, so I'm ahead...whew. That is if you started on July 24...

    I have completed seven hubs in five days. Not bad going so far but I expect it will be much more of a struggle as I start to run out of ideas!

    I got to Day 9, then took a vacation for two weeks. (Three cheers for the existence of places without internet, electricity or cell phones.)

    But now I'm back and ready to go. I'll count today as my Day 10,

  15. Bakari Chavanu profile image57
    Bakari Chavanuposted 8 years ago

    I have 16 hubs done so far, with about 10 days left in the challenge. I've hit a bit of a snag, though, for ideas, particularly ideas that might draw high page views. Most of the articles I've written so far draw fewer than a 100 hits. I use the Google keyword search but it is difficult to figure out how to write articles that will attract readers. I will still try to complete the challenge anyway, and then reassess my strategy at the end of 30 days.

    Ghost32posted 8 years ago

    I did my 30 in 17 days or so, but RIGHT THEN our smaller, clean-electricity generator bit the dust.  So until we have the money (coming soon, we believe) to set up alternative  energy (have high hopes for wind power), am not writing any more Hubs--just bouncing around a bit here and there.

    I lost steam after doing it daily while on my road trip... Sort of have a couple in the works though, and a few floating around in my noggin. My total so far is only 15, though. Should be putting out a bunch more soon though!
    By the way--How do you all manage to keep yourselves enthused? How do you find inspiration to do this EVERY DAY??

    I am at 17 with 13 more to finish by the end of August (I gave myself an extra week since I knew I was gonna be busy).  It seems like I am on target.  I have one more started and hope to finish it in the near future.

    Well, since it's after 12 AM where I am, and today is Day 22 for me as I didn't start until July 25th, I've now published 23 Hubs.  I'm a Plus 1, I guess if I'm supposed to be averaging 1 per day.

    I guess everyone will have a different opinion.  I have some lofty goals myself, where I would really like to make a little extra money from HP.  Doing the challenge will consequently increase your traffic with the addition of backlinks of course. All of this does take some time however, but doing the challenge will certainly point you in the right direction (if that's your cup of tea that is).

    I have published 12 since starting, I think. I have another 3 going. I don't think it's bad for a complete beginner. My score has gone up quite a bit, and my hits seem to be okay for starters.

    Flightkeeperposted 8 years ago

    I've done 9 in 7 days.  After I've had my 30 I'm going to take a bit of a break.  This is pretty intense. 

    I did the Hub Challenge because it forced me to write.  At the end of it, I'll have a small body of work to build on.  It's a great experience.

    I dropped out of the challenge but I still tried to keep up smile. I made 17 hubs with 5 days to go. Next time there's another challenge, I'll definitely join and stick to it!
