I saw that Hubber Jeffrey Neal decided to write a hub that will journal his efforts and results in the 30 day challenge.
Jeffrey Neal: A Hubchallenge Journal
I have always been inspired and learned a lot from real time journals in the online writing/marketing arena. I read JeffreyNeals and am looking forward to the daily updates as he is very forthcoming w/ stats and earnings, so hopefully we can see some big increases for him!
So I decided to join in and make one also, ill log the boring stuff, like where i stuck links and how etc. ill be counting stats as if my pre-existing hubs dont exist.
Sunforged: A HubChallenge Log
So is anybody else performing some sort of log or journal?
I am one who has been keeping diaries and journals from an early age so joining the journal challenge might prove interesting.However,I need to understand the expectations so that I can stay focused on the goal.I will read what Jeffrey Neal has done as well as your own Sunforged.Then,if I have more questions i will comment again.
Thanks, sunforged. I figured I would want to look back at the end and see the progress. I actually got the idea from seeing some other past hubber journals during challenges. ysdata's post in the January Hub Challenge thread about the diary of a mad hubber reinforced my desire to record my own challenge this time. Here is her Diary of a Mad Hubber.
I like the approach you are taking with yours as well and the detailed promotion tactics.
Here's to increased traffic and revenue in 2010, and hey, we're having fun also!
I looked through ysdata's series, her final one is here
Mad Hubber Part 6
Her series is an example of why sometimes its a good idea to create your own unique tags so you can easily find and and create feeds of specific content.
I use "sunforged systems" for all my promotion method/system hubs, so I can easily create a feed and find them all at once.
It was difficult to find all the "Diary of a mad hubber" hubs, but in the end a very impressive 100 hubs in 24 days was done!
It looks her 30 day adsense increase was only around 2.00USD? did I read that right, if thats true than its a good example for the rest of us that rewards are not instantaneous.
We better be able to pull of a measly 30 in 30
I actually haven't made it all the way through them, but yeah, I wonder what the update on adsense earnings would be now.
I am really pushing myself this month. 30 hubs is more than I've done my entire time here, and I'm shooting to finish with 60, so that will be 34 total. This week will be a good push for me, though. My weekends are actually harder to get things done, so it will be ON starting tomorrow!
Hmm, I just may make a hubchallenge diary hub as well. Having to update will force me to remember to do the challenge in time
Made my update for the day - published 2 meager hubs, including the actual HubChallenge Log, luckily I seem to be ending my online day around 3am EST, so Im able to report stats at a consistent time that equals a new day in Hubtime and Adsense time.
have you decided to log or not to log?
perhaps you are more of a chronicler?
I didn't get a chance to make it until you reminded me just now.
I made (and obviously updated) it today:
The10dollarmark's january hubchallenge log
10dollarmark is my project's name. When I saw captain squid made a project to see how long it'd take for him to reach a decent income on a new account, I thought I'd do the same...except unlike him I'm doing it across multiple sites (triond, hubpages, textbroker, squidoo, helium, etc..) and my goals are all written using the number 10. Like goal to make 10$ in a site, 10$ in a year (lol), 10$ in a month, 10$ in a week, 10$ in a day,etc....
So when I started the project I made a new HP account as I want HP to be a big part of the project.
I have a hub about it.
Ill have to read it..I use similar goal systems, small at first to keep me motivated.
*edit* visited http://hubpages.com/hub/The-10-Dollar-Mark
highly suggested to all who may see this thread
I think Ill have to adopt the spreadsheet method too, nevr tried that capsule functionality before
The original Captain, and still the best.
Loyalis is a top bloke.
Figured I would make the thread more active:

I essentially took a 2 week vacation, although it seems like 30 in 30 will now be impossible, since Im doing a 20 hub series of mostly Avatar commercial/product hubs, i actually have about 15 more in various states of completeness.
I hope to be at exactly 1 hub a day average done by tomorrow at this time!
Going to swing by and see how the rest of your challenge journals are going, I hope your adsense is performing better than mine! All time low in adsense this month even with new hubs but all time high in ebay, so whatever! I guess.

oops, 1 day left - 15 hubs to publish! I have a couple of drafts and unfinished, but 15 will be tough.
Oops I didn't make it either. I wrote about 19 hubs out of the 30. Oh well there is always next month!
Thankyou so much for saying that
I've got a few bummers too, but I've left them up because when people land on them they end up clicking the ads just to get out again! lol
Just wrote and published hub No.55 - just 10 more to do today? Nah...don't think so!

30 hubs in 30 days is great...but how much time did you spend making sure your efforts will be viewed ?Are your 30 Hubs a craps shoot, a gamble ..are you just throwing *it* against the wall and seeing what sticks?Join us in a 60 day challenge that includes a 30 day promotion phase and a community...

Well...I knew it was insane for me to take the HubChallenge and aim for 100 hubs in 30 days (probably should have aimed for 30). I am 35 weeks pregnant and that means not always feeling the greatest. Plus I am a work from home mom of a very active 3 year old. I was doing great at the start of the...

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...

Now that the team building phase is complete, what types of questions are left unanswered that should be covered in the next team hub?Any ideas that we should include in our team effort?Any other Hub authors want to lend some off-site promotion to our effort?..im really excited, barely slept due to...

There wasn't another thread on this that I could find.I'm doing the 30 in 30 Challenge for January. My last attempt was in November, and I ended with 13 hubs. Disappointing, yes, but looking ahead January will be better. Many hubbers are gearing up or are already doing it, so...

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,...
