Is anyone interested in doing a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge?
Prospectboy and I are starting a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge starting on Friday, June15th 2012. Anyone want to join us?
Yes I'm interested in joining. It would benefit all of us in the end
You just make a commitment to writing 30 hubs in 30 days...whether it's one hub a day, or 30 by the end of the 30 day period is up to you. I find the second way works best for me because I can put more time into each hub and go back to some of them.
Had day indeed for the first hub. Spent the whole day trying to get the first hub done. It is now done, photographed, encapsulated and published. Good luck every one.
Hey there Karen. Thanks for asking this question. I was going to ask it myself on Monday, but you beat me to it. I'm excited to get this started. Hope others will join us.
Hi Prospectboy! Glad you saw the question. I still can't send you an email so at least now we know we are on the same page!
Hi, just been reading the HubChallengers Forum in the Hub Community forums – would it be better to start a thread for our challenge there -apparently it’s frowned on to create threads about hub challenges elsewhere. What does everyone else think?
I started this challenge the day I joined. I'm almost halfway there in under a week
Good luck guys!
Well done. I think the key to this is preparation. I have my list and topics and am balancing that nicely with study, family and the hunt for new writers for my e-zine Tweaking Madd. If anyone is interested on the last one let me know!
What is Tweaking Madd about?
Tweaking magazine is written and run by students and writers. It is to give students and writers a place to publish. We have a Facebook page, Tweaking Madd and are published on ISSUU. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more information.
I've done it in the past and realistically found that I rushed through hubs and the quality I produced during those 30 days were often not of a high standard.
Go for it if you have the time however don't rush. Quality hubs get read and make you money
Okay, thank you for the advice. I have done it once before and am ready to do it again as it really helped boost my numbers and self confidence. Plus my job ends for the summer that day so I will have plenty of time!
I'm with CyclingFitness. Unless one is geared to writing one entire QUALITY hub each day, a 30/30 is little more than an exercise in churning out sub-standard hubs that WILL up the number of hubs published but won't score high individually.
I am so excited by this. Also scared silly. First time that I have put myself under direct pressure as a writer outside of study and Tweaking Madd and that is a labor of love.
While I agree with CyclingFitness and JamaGanee that the quality of the hubs has to take priority over the quantity of hubs, I don't agree that a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge will necessarily lead to lower quality hubs. I found that the challenge led me to focus more on the hubs and provide the best ones I could. It was a great motivation, and kept me focused. I found that I had to spend less time debating with myself over minor decisions, and tried a variety of hub topics.
In my opinion, the only hubs that were low quality during my challenges were the ones that were done during the last week, when I was behind and trying to catch up. My advice is this: make sure you keep up so you don't fall behind.
I recommend that if you do find yourself in the position where you have to rush to finish, that you either extend your deadline, or be satisfied that you published more hubs than you would have otherwise and not crank out those final hubs just to meet the number.
Good luck with your challenge! I'm sure it will be a successful one for you.
Wise words Millionaire tips. I have read many people's experiences about the 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge, and most were very positive. I did it myself back a few months ago and found it a very positive experience so we are excited about this.
Ty, sage advice. I think with the challenges of life and study the key to this is preparation. I have my list, my stories and a plethoria of ideas. Publication time has arrived for my quarterly e-zine Tweaking Madd and I am chasing new writers.
I keep seeing articles all over Hubpages, about the benefits of 30 in 30 (or people who just thought themselves crazy for undertaking it!). I think I'm ready to take the plunge, I'm with you all!
Okay Ellebee, welcome to the challenge. It starts officially on Friday, 6/15/12. Start developing your list of hub topics now, and we will all start on Friday!
Sounds great! I've been brainstorming my ideas . My biggest challenge is going to be very limited internet access during my vacation in July. But I think I can still make this work.
That just means you have to write twice as many in June Ellebee!
Yep that's what I figured! My only concern is that I want to try to spread out my new Hubs as opposed to publishing several on one day (in an attempt to have steady traffic). But I decided I could write in advance, then hit "publish" via smart phone
We are now up to 7 people who are joining in the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge starting this Friday. Anyone else that wants to join in, please let us know by this Friday, 6/15. So far, we have me, prospectboy, Mr. Williams, Redberrysky, ElleBee, SusieQ42, and Cherylvanhoorn.
One of my other friends and followers on here has joined also. Her username on here is beingwell.
Okay, I have added her to the list. I am getting excited. I have hit 70 hubs so by the time we are done I will have 100. Can't wait.
I have a friend who is interested in doing it as well, I will go forth and prompt her.
I'm ready to rock myself Karen. I guess we can use this question to help keep track of everyone's progress. Me and beingwell are Facebook friends, so I can communicate with her on there.
Maybe someone should write a hub about our challenge and we can comment on it from there as we go along? I am not going to do it because I already have a lot of hubs. Would someone else like to write a hub about the 7 of us and this challenge?
Hi Karen (just posted a comment but computer crashed and it’s not shown up, so this might appear twice) I started a Hub earlier this week about the challenge, I could shuffle it about a bit to include everyone.
I joined the challenge through the hub Redberry Sky posted
We're now up to 10 - As well as Angel198625, Chris Hugh has joined the Challenge as well
I'm also in this hub challenge. First hub out of 30 published today
Glad to see we have added more people to the challenge. Welcome to the new members, and continued luck to the rest of us doing the challenge
Should we all follow each other so we know when a new hub is posted for all of us. I am going to.
I definitely think that we should all follow each other. It's up to you all though.
Oh wow, this is indeed a challenge and i hope that i could join. But i'm still getting around this wonderful site and i'm taking baby steps as of the moment. Maybe someday i could join too.
Hi! I'm in! I wrote my first one yesterday. I'll start on my next as soon as I'm done typing this.
For the purposes of driving traffic to HP and announcing our Hubs, I created a blog. The details are on my profile. It will be good for back links and a easy way for us to find the places on HP to go to reach each other's Hubs. You create your own blog postings. The directions are there. You just send email to a special address and your email becomes the blog entry.
You'll just want to send a link to your Hub and maybe a little teaser saying what the blog is about. Attach a picture if you like, pictures are good. Don't send the text of the Hub, of course. That would defeat the purpose and violate our user agreement with HP.
We're not supposed to post links in comments, but links are okay in our profiles. So I put the link in my profile.
Welcome to the challenge Chris. Sounds like some good information you have provided.
Hi, are we supposed to be commenting here when we write a Hub for the challenge, or do we have a place in the forum? I set up a blog where people can announce the Hubs they create, but no one's done it yet except me. Info is on my profile.
Hey Chris. It's not necessary that we comment here after every hub we write. I'm interested in posting my hubs on your blog. I may have to e-mail you on how to go about doing it though.

They say it takes 21 days to create a habit. My goal is to hone my writing skill, write quality articles and make new friends here. Who is crazy enough to join me? Come on! We can do it together. Meredith

I've scrounged HubPages for this challenge as I posted one Sunday, one yesterday, and am working on what today. With only 20 hubs in the years I have been on here, I think it would be a great challenge. Is anyone currently undertaking this? Do you have any other advice?

Is anyone else taking the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge at the moment?I just thought that if there is anyone else taking the challenge this month, we could offer some moral support and encouragement!

Well, I've decided to take the plunge and do the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. I have a list of hub ideas ready to go, and even a few hubs started that I seem to be hesitating to finish and actually publish. I figure this is the push I need to get going and build my hub portfolio. I'm nervous just...

What do you think of the 30 Hubs in 30 days challenge?If you can produce 30 quality articles in 30 days, props to you. But unless your schedule is cleared, I'm skeptical many people could research and write 30 awesome Hubs in a month. Any thoughts?

Those who have been around awhile know that I personally prefer starting Hub Challenges that coincide with calendar months. It's just easier to keep up with what day you're on. I play to write and publish 30 hubs during the month of March.If you've been contemplating joining a HubChallenge,...
