    Did you find the "30 hubs in 30 days challenge" worthwhile?

    I've been contemplating doing 30 hubs in 30 days, but I'm not sure it's worth the stress. I'm sure I could come up with 30 hub ideas, it's finding the time to do it that worries me. That's a lot of effort for an old man!

    I wrote 20 hubs in 24 hours and that was very rewarding.

    I think that any achievement in life that you really tried hard to accomplish is definitely worthwhile and will go to making you happier as a whole.

    That said, I think that if you know you would feel good about yourself after doing the challenge and wouldn't have had to put off something important in order to do it, then do it!

    But if it means neglecting your children (since you are 'college' dad) then don't do it!  Maybe you could delegate 2 hours a day to it and do a "2 hours a day for 30 days Hub challenge."

    Be realistic, but try hard!

    Good luck on whatever you decide on! smile

      Thank you - it sure was difficult! I promised myself that I could go and see my girlfriend If I did it though so I was motivated! It's also funny to the giant jump on my hub-graph haha.

      I would hope it also increased in earnings. I took the 30 hubs a day. So far I've only increased a dollar in a few weeks.

      Typing away incessantly is my secret! When a human has only one goal to achieve I truly believe miraculous things can happen! Plus hubbing is soooo addictive!

    I think so. The more Hubs you make, the more chances there are for someone to read your hubs. I'm still within my 30 days. What has helped me has been stuff I'm going through.

    Sometimes the inspiration to write doesn't come very quickly. Remember you can probably write two in a day. This happened to me. The first day I felt like I had some kind of writers block and the next day 'BAM'.

      I made a list of Hubs that I wanted to write before starting the challenge.  I actually had 50 hubs that I wanted to write and then eliminated 20.  On some of my hubs, I came to realized that they had the potential to become multiple hubs. Good luck!

    As a Hubber that accepted and completed the 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge I can say that it was indeed a challenge.  I benefited in several ways, most notably through a dramatic increase in traffic, followers, and income via Google Adsense (back then the HP Earnings Program wasn't yet created).  I went from having 300 to 400 views a day to 1,500 to 3,000 views per day believe it or not.  My earnings went from   20 and 50 cents per day to 3 and 5 dollars a day as well.  Some Hubbers did better than me but most did just as well.

    I'd recommend any Hubber to do the challenge if they are indeed serious about making some residual income that will pay dividends in the long haul as it will benefit them greatly.

      Is the 3 to 5 dollars a day consistent? Or just initially? Thats the thing I worry about. If I'm not constantly hubbing, it will only increase the first few days but then nada.

      Nope, consistently.  It is possible and the really successful Hubbers make well over $30 per day!

    i did it too. Pretty good feeling i got from that. A challenge need to be win by someone

    I actually just started this challenge. I've already written two hubs. I chose to do it in an effort to become more productive. Plus I needed a way to push myself. It is definitely going to be a challenge. Because of my writing routine, it's difficult for me to get a hub a week out, let alone one a day. But, to be a successful writer, I need to learn how to write more quickly, but keep a high quality. It is a lot of effort, but I suspect in the end it will be well worth it. I have a feeling I'll learn quite a bit from this experience.

    Yes, I think so. My hub score went up during the challenge, and, has remained in the 90's since. Completing it kept me on my toes but I would do it again knowing what I know.
    Another reason I am glad I did it as it forced me to be on top of my game. The drawback was that I did not have time to proof my hubs like I needed to so there were errors.
