I have completed three 30 day HubChallenges. One in May, one in late July, and one during the calendar month of September. In all 3 cases, I published more than 30 hubs in 30 days. In fact, in the latest challenge I committed to publishing 45 and I did it. 45 hubs put me at an even 200 hubs.
Now that we've started October, I'm ready for a new challenge. If you're already working on a challenge I encourage you to continue your challenge and wish you all the best and if you need any help or advice, holler at me.
If you've been thinking about joining the challenge, the time is now. Come join me. I'd love to have some company. We can keep each other motivated.
If you're interested, just post a quick note here saying you're interested in starting, but then PLEASE post all of your links to the regular thread that is designed for that. We like to keep things tidy at the HubChallenge forum.
I'm shooting for 30 hubs in the 30 remaining days of October.
I am disliking you already ... I MEANT to do a 30 day hub challenge and *coughs* never got round to it
But I have decided to start one all by myself in October, so if others are doing it, then great!
Ah, there's a regular thread for it, didn't realise that, I should go and find that then!
I'm interested in the October challenge. Is it too late?
Of course it's not too late! Jump in! If you prefer, and ONLY if you prefer, the regular hub challenge runs all the time and you begin counting 30 days when you start. That's just the regular way we do it. I just started this October challenge myself because I like working on a calendar month. You can do it whichever way you like. You can set yourself a goal of so many to do in October. It can be 30 or it can be another number. That's up to you.
I just joined 5 days ago and I've already got 8 hubs. I'll take the challenge. I might not get it but I will definately try
hrmm, I swear you guys live here...on this site!! over 30 hubs in one month...geez!...
Oh yeah, and congrats!
181 posts in 6 weeks? Who lives here? LOL
A writer writes everyday. If you get in the habit of writing every day you can write 30 hubs in 30 days. There are tons of benefits from doing it, money included.
How'd your adsesnse revenue fair after the last? (Not specifics, but in general? Big/med/small increase immediately/over a short period/over a long period)
My adsense was practically non-existent until the first HubChallenge. Then it took off. This past month, I doubled my previous high month. It took me 10 months to reach my first payout and only 2 the next time. I look to be making a monthly check now.
Hi KCC, congrats on your success, you are truly a go-getter. Please don't take offense with this question. Aside from the satisfaction of writing, is the few hundred dollars you might earn a month worth the time you obviously spend on producing hubs?
I'm sure a lot of hubbers who have joined recently would like to hear your response.
http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/18049 <~~~This is the official place to post all HubChallenge links. You should only post them there to keep it neat and sweet.
I want so much to do the challenge and I know I will be stepping up my efforts this month at HubPages but just not sure 30 is in the cards with everything else I have to do with my business.
We're all busy. You can do this. It really does get easier once you delve into it. Don't think about 30 days from now. Just jump in! I'll hold your hand!
*puts out cute little monkey paw*
'k, i wasn't sure i would be able to do another 30 hubs in 30 days challenge, but that cute little monkey paw did it...i mean who could resist that?!
so i'll rearrange my schedule a bit and give it a go. and this time i will focus on keywords instead of just creative writing, 'cause i want to get good at those...these hub challenges are excellent learning experiences and i highly recommend them.
good luck everyone!
My 2 week break has been long enough. I'm with you too KCC. I will do 30 hubs this month.
*sigh* I wish I can but I'll just stick to writing one every two to three days. Good luck with your October challenge, KCC, earner, paradise and Richard.
Thanks for the good wishes, emievil. I, for one, need them!
Awwww...c'mon! You know you want to! You can do it! It really is fun! Nothing happens to you if you don't do 30. What do you have to lose?
*puts out other cute little monkey paw*
thanks for the convincing and the pep talk. Hmmmm, let me get back to you tomorrow. I published one today so that's already one out of 30 .
awww... invent your own challenge... shame it's not near the end of November or I'd suggest "The 12 Days of Xmas" and you could challenge people to do 12/month
I'm just reporting in that I think I am past the half way mark, but got caught up in other stuff today. I'll have a quick count as I don't know... Ah, 19/30 done, but I started alone on 26th September, so I'll keep going and make sure I do 30 in October just so there's no disputing it.
Okay, i need a couple of hours to think about this. Just recovering from the last challenge where i managed to write 35 hubs in 30 days.
But these challenges seem to be the only thing that kinds of motivates me to write enough hubs to boost my income.
The last one has boosted my income. No more $0.00 days now. That im happy about.
I know what you're saying. I just ended a 45 hubs in 29 days..so part of me would like to take a little break, but the results are too good to let it die down. I really want that monthly payout and I'm there. I just want to keep it there. You can do this!
*extends cute little monkey foot*
*receives cutie foot*
Thanks for encouraging us along. You are great
Okay. I'm in. Where do we post links? same place as the ongoing one?
Are you guys counting yesterday?
I think I am in cause I really need to boost this up a bit this month.
I'm counting yesterday and I didn't produce anything. I'm just counting it as October. I like working on a calendar month so I can keep up with what day it is. So basically, I'm proposing 30 hubs in 31 days. If you don't count yesterday, no biggie. Start today.
The actual hubchallenge runs all the time and you can jump in anytime, I just find it difficult to keep up with what day I'm on. So, what I'm saying is..count from when you want, no one will notice. I'm excited! We have a good group!
This is really looking great! October is going to be a HUGE month for all of the HubChallengers out there.
First of all congratulations to KCC Big Country for 200 hubs. I bet you see an Adsense payment, every month from now on!
LivewithRichard, good to have you back! I was wondering what happened to you.
I've got 30 hubs in 30 days down pat, so I'm going to try for 50 this month. I'm psyched with the new Ebay payment structure. I don't understand it, despite reading all the info two or three times. But I'm liking the results. And it is time to get ready for Christmas. So it's at least 50 Ebay hubs for me this month.
Thank you, Nelle! I know you'll have no problem with 50. I did 45 last month, but I have a lot going this month. I have committed to 30, but I will most likely exceed that total. I still can't get Ebay to pick me up. When I try to reapply it tells me that my email has already registered.
10 months and I have only published 15 hubs. Maybe this is the thing I am looking for , I will join the challenge KCC
Can I shoot for 20 in 30?
As an Adsense side-note, I'll be starting this challenge having missed a 1 month to payout by roughly 5 bucks. >.<
Of course you can! I bet you end up doing more though...but sure, go for 20! That sucks to have missed it by $5. I missed my first Amazon payout by 37 cents for July because of one person returning one of their items. I'll be getting August when they pay it out in October.
Like this one. 20 in 30. Could do 1 every other day and 2 at the weekend.
Good Luck KCC.
OK, thanks. Count me in. Let me know if we have to post the links somewhere, like we did with the 30 Day Challenge.
Yayyy! Welcome aboard! Yes, just continue posting them in the same place with everyone else in the 30 day challenge, it's still part of the same challenge, we're just starting together as a group of sorts.
I'd like to take the challenge again. The first time it took me 60 days to complete the 30 hubs. I wonder if I can do it in 30 days this time.
I might join in again after the weekend to find out if I am capable to do the 30/30
You can do it! It really does get easier once you jump in head first. The topics seem to come faster, you get motivated when you see your pageviews going up, etc. When you're focused and in that mode, it just flows. Come join us...
*extends last little monkey paw* Gonna have to switch to my tail next.
Ok I'm in. I'm new to this so I guess this will be a great way to get things started.
As much success and side of lettuce courtesy of Google Adsense, I cannot commit to the challenge this month as I MUST edit and rewrite my novel for submission to a literary agent. From the looks of it, I finally found one and so must reach my deadline! Not to say that I won't be writing any more hubs, just that I won't be writing as many
Wish me luck, KCC Big Country. You know I'll support you as much as I can!
OMG that is so cool! I do wish you all the very best with your novel. I'm envious! You can hop on the challenge another time. Get your novel done!
Wow!!!!!!!! You're finally hitting it big dohn! Congrats. Uhhhmmmm, don't forget us when you're up there. Good luck friend!
Okay...all of these posts convinced me. Besides, how can one say no to such a great challenge???
I'm a newbie hubber...or is it hubster?<----see I really am NEW! Just joined yesterday and so far have 5 hubs up with one in the works. Maybe I'll make it after all :-)
It's not really my bag to tear through that much writing for Hub Pages, but I earned so much last year around Black Friday I want to see if I can prepare enough to make it at least five times as much by the start of December. So I probably will try to get 30 through October, although 15 is more likely.
Viryabo, glad to here that. Yep you post the links in the same place.
I've been up and working on my October hub challenge hubs this morning myself. It's a rainy and stormy day here, so good to have indoor work.
KCC, I am in for this challenge, realizing I lost two days but will have 29 days to do 30 hubs. Thanks so much!!! Looking forward to it.
Way cool! You don't have to cut it off at Oct 31, you can extend it 2 days if you want. Or you can wait until the end and decide. You may find that you'll whip out 30 hubs in a lot shorter time than you think and won't care about the extra couple of days! If you need anything, holler at me.!
I have already done two hubs for the challenge , I have added tags hubchallenge and Octomber hubchallenge so its a bit easy to track. is that the way to go ?
How do you do this? teach me...thanks. PS; adding the tags hubchallange.
In your hub there is a section called tags , there is a box where you can type the relevant tags , there is a very useful link at the top of the forum http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/17849 if you want more information about hub challenges
Rumbling was just saying that when you are adding tags to your hub (keywords) add "hubchallenge" as one of them. It allows people to search for hubs that have that and some people have RSS feeds that look for that. That way your hub will be included. It just gives you that extra little bit of exposure.
So do we add 2 tags - hubchallenge and Octomber?
Adding "hubchallenge" as a tag is good enough. There is nothing "official" about my October challenge. It's just my way of getting some friends to join me and make it more fun for all of us. I am sold on the concept and what it can do for you. I am passionate about showing others what it can do. All you have to do is try to see.
Sounds like you're off to a great start! Keep it up! If you need me, holler.
KCC I posted the links to the two I did on the first, yesterday was one of those crazy days and I didn't get any done so trying to play catch up today.
I didn't do any on the first day either. I posted one yesterday and one today.
I promise that you don't need to worry when you don't post one day. Don't consider it as 'behind' and end up with that frenzied "I have to catch up" mode. Relax. Think of it as a school project where 30 hubs are due at the end of 30 days. You could wait until the 30th day and do all of them. So why worry? It does help to post consistently, but I have lots of days where I don't post any. Then some days I may post 4 I have been working on a little at a time.
okay, okay, I'm convinced . KCC I'm in. *shakes hand with KCC's cute little monkey paw * Good luck to all of us!
I've finished three so far. Hope to get a batch done tomorrow.
Ok....at the risk of looking like a big ol' fan spammer, I just went and made sure I was the fan of everyone in this thread. So, now I'll know whenever each of your write a hub. I will make every attempt to go read your hubs and comment when I can. Sometimes, time restraints keep me from doing it as often as I like, but if I run out of time, I will at least give you a thumbs up.
Good luck to everyone! Let the fun begin....or continue.....LOL
OK, KCC! It's on! I've written 150 hubs in 4 months - and actualy, I didn't start working hard until September. Piece of cake!!
Yaayyyyy! Let's see, 150 divided by 4 is like 37 hubs a month...but like you said you didn't really get going until September...so yeah, you should have nooooooo problem! You will be glad you did.
Just remember, as you publish a hub (or in groups, doesn't matter) head over to the thread where you can post them. Not everyone gets to do that, you know. They don't typically allow you to promote your own hubs in the forums. The HubChallenge is an official HubPages event. This is the thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/18049
sorry...confused a little...can we include any hubs we wrote since October 1, or just hubs we wrote since accepting the challenge? since accepting the new challenge, i have written one hub, which i am about to publish, but i have written one hub since October 1 (before accepting the challenge). just wondering.
thanks very much.
You can count it however you want. No one's writing it down and keeping count. For me, it's easier to use the calendar month so that I always know what day I'm on.
so we have until October 31, not 30 days from the day we accept the challenge, right? if that is the case, i may use the one i wrote yesterday then. thanks! you guys are awesome, have i told you that lately?
Let me see if I can explain this without totally confusing everyone. The ongoing hubchallenge authorized by HubPages is 30 hubs in 30 days and it starts whenever you say it starts. That's the normal routine that's always running. We started that in late July. This puts everyone on their own timeline and everyone has to keep up with their own 30 day schedule.
For me, personally, just lil' ol' monkey-faced KCC, I like to run on a calendar month. That way if it's the 3rd of the month, I know I'm on day 3. It just so happens that October has 31 days. So, what I'm doing is really saying I'll do 30 hubs in 31 days. It's my own challenge.
But, what you may not realize is, I'll probably do the 30 in 20 days and it won't matter whether it's a 30 or 31 day challenge. I will still write until Oct 31st and see how many I get. On November 1st I will establish a new challenge for myself.
Since it was the first of October and Christmas is coming, I thought I'd see if anyone wanted to do it with me. As it turns out, lots of people like my cute little monkey ways and want to dive in! LOL (I'm being silly of course).
Did that help?
OK KCC you talked me into it. I have been discouraged the last two days because my traffic here on HubPages has just sucked. It already was kind of wimpy but October has been pitiful. I was going to focus on eHow and Xomba instead.
But I just like you too much. I had 90 Hubs at the end of September. I did one yesterday and have one written for today just want to add a picture before publication.
Since I am getting faster at writing, maybe I can do the 30 Hubs plus some of the other stuff as well. Just need to figure out the traffic thing. Thanks for the encouragement.
*jumps us and down squawking like monkeys do* I'm so glad I talked you into it. You make a good point, though. When you participate in the challenges, you DO get better at creating hubs. It's just the whole thing gets more efficient. I'm always here for you! I've been a big fan of yours!
OK I am up for the challenge.
All the best to everyone.

Woooo hooooo! I didn't stop to read the url's until I was just typing this reply and woah! viagra jumped out at me...LOL I gotta go read that one! Welcome aboard! Glad you joined the fun. In the future, post your links to this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/18049 We're all putting them there to keep it neat and tidy and others not participating in the challenge know where to go to get jealous of what we're all doing.
Well, I got 5 in for the month so far and may have a referral coming aboard if she remembers to sign up under me, lol.
I just joined, so this is new to me... do I have to do anything special to join?
I'm already planning what to write each day!
Anyone have any tips for me that might help me out?
Welcome to HubPages and welcome aboard the challenge! There is nothing special to do to join. There are some great articles that Ryan Hupfer and Darkside have written to help. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/17849
http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/18049 (this one is where you can post your links after you have written your hubs)
Tips? Set aside a little time everyday to do something, whether it's brainstorming topics, researching keywords, gathering data/pics, or writing your hubs. It is not necessary to post/publish one every day. Don't get frazzled if you skip some days. It's not a one a day challenge.
Holler and I'll help if you get stuck or have a question. There are about half a dozen of us on the HubChallenge team and we all enjoy helping newbies get their feet wet.
Hi, everyone. :]
I just joined HubPages a few days ago, and I think I'm up for the challenge.
I'm so excited! I hope you all have a great month!
Hi KCC u r rocking
I am very much exited to join this challenge ,I'm joining this challenge today onwards.Thanks so much.
This is awesome mad inspiration. I have 7 for the month so far and as it is a quiet day in the chandler abode and looking rather icky outside may find time to do a few more.
Fourth Ebay hub is done. Now the question is watch football or keep hubbing.
Okay, I'm going for it. I've pumped out 2 hubs in my 2 days here, have lots of hub ideas, so I say: "I'm in!" I guess my official starting date is October 2nd. Better get cracking!
Welcome aboard Eva! You're doing great! If you need help along the way holler!
Nelle, I knew you'd probably end up hubbing.
Okay finished my 6th hub and am really going to stop to watch football.
Unfortunately i failed to finish my Hubchallenge in September I only finish 26 four short of the requirement, I guess I was so exhausted and having a burnout already hayz, But I did finish one last August.
HubChallenge did me a lot of favor:
1. I averaged 500 views in almost one week... and now I'm batting 150 to 300 views...
2. Three of my hubs was featured.
3. I was nominated as a HubNugget Wannabe and eventually become a HubNugget.
4. I gained a lot of fans.
5. It raised my hubscore to the range of 93 to 99.
6 My Adsense earnings gets a lift.
7. I get my highest HubScore of 97 in one of my hub...
I wish I could whipped more lil triumphs in the days ahead.
KCC can I still join the HubChallenge this month or the coming month since I did't finish the second challenge...
I'm not KCC, but I say of course you can. I'm sure KCC would extend her monkey paw and say come on in, welcome.
I think 26 hubs is a great achievement, and I'm glad you've seen results because of it!
(KCC, I just read some of your hubs and realize you're a she, sorry for the "he" assumption in my former posts.)
Thanks Noelle by the sem break comes I'll be reading a lot of hubs and my promise to read yours Noelle will become a reality. I'm having 2 weeks break Noelle.
Thanks for the encouragement...
I read your results and it's just one more example of how good participating in a HubChallenge can be. They work, on so many levels. Welcome aboard!
Ok gang count me in on this please. I have been doing this on my own but I think having others is a great idea. queenbe
LOL.....Thanks Nelle. Of course GeneralHowitzer can hop on the KCC HubChallenge! I know having a monkey avatar lends itself to interpretation of my gender. Sometimes, that's part of the fun. There is a story behind my monkey, but now I keep it because I like being silly.
Many thanks KCC you're such a wonderful ape or monkey or primate or whatever nyahahaha... Good day...
Wow, this has really taken off. It is great to see so many involved.
I just finished #8 and 9 for the challenge.
I agree lynn this is a lot of fun. I just finished #8 this morning.
I may have just joined this site, but jumping in the deep end sounds like fun for me! I'm gonna have to exercise my typing fingers! Count me in!
Woooo hoooo! The thing you have to remember is that you're never in it alone. There are a lot of us that are more than wiling to help you, you just have to holler! Email me anytime or ask a question in this forum. Welcome aboard and welcome to HubPages! You'll have a blast!
I am shooting for 100 hubs in 100 days, in fact for House it's not even a challenge it's a done deal !
OMG...that's awesome! Starting today, right?
This is getting interesting! Health Tip vs. Dirt Magik
i'm starting a new 30 in 30 today, needed a short break from the last one.
I am definitely on the right track of doing it... and i will try to continue
by Nelle Hoxie 14 years ago
First of all, I'd like to thank KCC for the October Challenge and the whole idea of a bunch of us joining together each month to encourage and support each other on the HubChallenge. I had a ball last month and it was great to get to know so many of you a lot better.KCC and I had so much fun in...
by Becca Hubbard-Woods 7 years ago
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...
by Writing Coach -- Rajinder Soni 13 years ago
Hello friends,After doing HubChallenge consistently for the last three months, I was able to publish 35 hubs in 30 days in January, 30 hubs in 30 days in February, and 30 hubs in 26 days in March.Now for this month, April 2010, I am again going to publish 30 hubs in 30 days. Doing this for the last...
by Haunty 14 years ago
I write 5 hubs a day. 2 of them are quality hubs that I enjoy writing and put my most effort to, the rest are there to share some kind of information I think is interesting. But these are not as good and I actually struggle to write them. So how many of your hubs are you satisfied with?
by Julie-Ann Amos 14 years ago
are we going to see any feedback? I recall something about HubPages reporting stats provided we tagged our hubs, which I duly did.And for those of us who sweated to achieve the magic 30 or even 100 in 30 days, apart from a bit of forum dialogue we've seen nothing... HubPages itself...
by Tyler Norwood 13 years ago
I have only been a member of HubPages for 5 weeks, and already I have made close to $1,000. I know that this is not exceptional for some Hubbers, except I only have 13 hubs, I am not an internet marketing guru, and my hubs are not that exceptional or keyword optimized. In fact, the only...
