Oh, thank you for the reminder that this weekend is the last time to give it a try. I published three times and was featured all three times and was chosen in the top ten twice. I found out one this morning. Hope Sunday afternoon counts?
Hi Janshares! I made the top ten once. I'm still new as to how The Hupages Contest work this is my first time participating. I signed up 3 years ago but started writing last year. Still learning the ropes. I love each and every one of your articles it seems as if writing flows naturally for you. Very talented!
I started off intending to enter at least one hub every two days, but real life slowed me down a bit (lol). But I'm on track to have averaged one featured every three days which isn't too far off my original target.
So far I've been in the top ten twice. I've entered 8 hubs so far and aim to have another 2 entered by the closing date. I've enjoyed reading the top ten winners each day and I've been impressed by the wide range of interests covered.
Final two hubs posted and featured. Whew! The deadline made me rush the last one, so I'll have to give it a tweak to improve it during the next week or so. It's been a fun challenge and got the adrenaline going!
I entered seven times (including my final entry this weekend) and made the top ten four times. Although I didn't take any of the weekly pots (yet -- maybe there's still hope with that final entry?) my additional hubs did boost my views and earnings -- and I had tons of fun being motivated to produce those seven new hubs. Since two of them were event / travel hubs, I had the extra fun of making a couple of day trips to write them. What's not to love about that?
Best of all, the contest got me back into the two-hub-a-week mode I aim for -- so now I will continue it. I do love this site!
Not I. I gave up that particular horticultural hobby about 20 years ago, after a dog wandered into the yard, sniffed the garden, then spent the next hour poring through the Doritos bags in our garbage can. I even swore off the habit of doodling little pot leaves in the dust on my neighbor's car windows..a good three weeks ago.
Oh wait..you're talking about a HP's writing challenge, aren't you Jan? Never mind...
I apologize for the irreverent comment, Jan. I was in a real silly mood last night. But truthfully, I rarely get in the mood to enter writing challenges. My Muse isn't the most competitive of mistresses.
