    Okay, so when I saw this challenge posted, I had exactly 19 hubs published in 19 days of being a member of Hubpages.  It made perfect sense to me: "I can do this," I said to myself.

    But there were some speed bumps, miscues, personal things going on and going awry...It was much harder to do it than I though it would be.  I just couldn't live with myself if I cranked out some cheap hubs.  I wanted to not only publish my hubs; I wanted them to shine.

    To everyone who is doing this challenge, please try to make it work, as it will definitely benefit you--sure, it might buy you a trip to Walt Disney World or pay off your house, or even buy you a Happy Meal, but make you a few fans and get known through our amazing community!

    To all of my fans, I appreciate your relentless support, especially when reading some of my RIDICULOUSLY LONG hubs!  I appreciate it!

    Congrats Dohn! I wonder if this kind of a challenge helps in generating adsense revenue. There have been a lot of forum threads on this subject but unfortunately I've never been a part of discussions on this topic. Since you are participating in the challenge,I would certainly look forward to having feedback from you. Good luck.

    Sunstreeks-Thank you.  I appreciate your help.smile

    Anjalichugh-Thank you and good question, concerning adsense...I've had a few days where I didn't make anything, some days where I made a penny, other days where I made $2.10...I guess it just varies.  Two of my best days pulled in $4.20 and $5.10...I guess that in time, it will get better.  But it is true about original content.  Everyone should aim for at least 700 original words. It definitely was a boost! I'll keep you posted!

    Thanks, Julianna!  I couldn't have done it without you!  I'm glad it's over, but I'm going to try to average one a day!

    Ultimate Hubber-Hail Caesar!!!  Where in Rome would I be without you???  Thanks for being a fan.  I owe you some coffee (and aspirin?) for all the time spent reading my EPIC hubs.lol
