    How do you find inspiration to write many hubs?

    I am interested in doing 30 in 30, but I feel I am unable to write too many hubs. I've tried at times to post a hub a day but it doesn't work because I can't think of things to write about. Can you share some of your ways of generating hub ideas?

    Just think of day to day things that involve your life, what you think about and do, things you are interested in or want to know about. research something and then post what you learned about it and how other people can learn about it too. just a few ideas.

    What you need to do is take on this 30/30 in a month or so. During this time, write down things that interest you - you will be amazed how many things come to mind when you are not "under the gun". I have not attempted the 30/30 yet, but just in one day came up with 100 things that I could write about...things that are true to my character and things I could defend.

    The next thing you want to do is write a couple dozen articles without publishing them. Just sit on them until you are ready and then publish two or three each day. At about day eight, you will have most of them published, which will give you about another 2-3 weeks to come up with half a dozen more hubs. This should take a lot of the stress and pressure off your shoulders. Hope this helps.

    There are so many things to write about.  Exploring this site - especially the topics section - and hubs written about the topic will help.  I have written a hub called "Where to Get Ideas for Hubs" that gives you some ways to come up with ideas.

    I would recommend thinking about what kinds of things you know very well - a skill, a hobby, something from work that is translatable to a mass audience, that you can teach others.  Work on a specific "classes" around the topic. 

    Like CJ said, make a list, and every time you come up with an idea, put it on the list. For me, the issue was not that I couldn't come up with ideas, it was that I would critique them too quickly as being "not hubworthy." 

    When I was in the challenge like this one, I decided to simply try out the hub.  I would find my niche so much better when I wrote whatever I was thinking about instead of forcing myself to think about something else.

    I start off by writing whatever comes to my head first thing in a morning and write it all out. Following it up with as much as I can be bothered to write on any other topic. If it's not interesting I do pack it in though and start again. It's not worth forcing 30 hubs in 30 if they're not worth reading.

      Indeed. Some people drop a bunch of junk on the Hubpage community, just to get their 30/30 badge. I think the 30/30 program forces many to rush in ahead of good sense. It gives Hubpages more places to place ads and make money for themselves. Not us.

    I get all of my ideas solely by what is going on with me personally. If I cook something I really liked and it actually turned out good enough to share, I share. When I troubleshoot certain problems at work and think that others may benefit, I write about that and of course photography because it is something that I love.
