    Hi everyone I found hubpages about a fortnight ago and thought I'd give this challenge a go. I'm quite new to all this though so I'm trying to pick it up as I go on.
    It all looks great fun so far and you seem a really friendly bunch.

    Good Luck! I have yet the courage to try 30 Hubs in 30 Days, although I do wish to do more then that (I still need to get an idea stream open first)!

    Welcome again, and its a great way to start off here!

      Hello Thranax
      thanks for replying. I don't know if it's courage or I'm just being overly ambitious! - my problem is that I'm on the coast and work long long hours for 7 days a week through the summer season. So I need to  try and get as  much done now while it's quiet here.
      I don't know about you but I watched the news this morning and that gave me 2 ideas for today so I might try that method for awhile.

        Not to rain on your parade, but I don't recommend newbies try to meet the challenge first up.  You need to learn how to put Hubs together first, otherwise you'll just give yourself a pile of Hubs that you have to go back and edit later, when you realise how much you've done wrong!

        Read Darkside's Hubs on how to Hub first.

    I feel obligated to remind people now that the Hub Challenge guidelines suggest that you write at least 500 to 700 word hubs. But this is a great opportunity to figure out what type of hubbing works for you.

    So keep us posted and let us know when you start to see search engine traffic appear and espcially sales.

    Welcome to the HubChallenge!

    Hi and thankyou to everyone for taking the time out to welcome me.

    Chinweike - you're right that's exactly what i am doing at the minute just trying to learn from my mistakes.

    Pearldiver thanks for the advice

    Hi Wayne and thanks

    Hello Nelle and thankyou - because this is so new to me and I haven't written in years I am doing just that- having a go at different types of writing to see what I can do - and what I can't!
