    I've scrounged HubPages for this challenge as I posted one Sunday, one yesterday, and am working on what today.  With only 20 hubs in the years I have been on here, I think it would be a great challenge. 

    Is anyone currently undertaking this?  Do you have any other advice?

      With the changes to SEO over the years, I can't see myself doing a 30/30 anytime soon, since it takes a lot longer to write a high-quality hub these days than in years past. But I'm doing a smaller hub challenge in May along with Karen Hellier. We're doing a 31 day challenge from May 1-31, but there's no set number of hubs everyone is expected to write. The goal will simply be to make them all Stellar Hubs. But as for the total number, we'll just choose our own target and go for it.

      We can all do it together, if you guys want.

        This sounds like a great idea.  It would motivate me to get some new quality hubs written.  I like the idea of each person choosing their own goal whether it is two stellar hubs, 30 or anywhere in between (or for you prolific writers out there more!)

      I've tried this in the past, however, I found it difficult to sustain.  Both my work life and family life are demanding and I never got more than 5 articles in 5 days completed.   I also have a variety of other hobbies and business ventures that require my attention from time to time. In addition, writing articles has gotten more challenging over the years requiring more effort to meet higher quality standards. Nonetheless, shooting for 30 in 30 is a great goal!

    This hub challenge dates from the days when people thought quantity was more important than quality. But HubPages has changed.

    Your time would be better spent writing 10 excellent hubs, rather than 30 mediocre ones. I say this from personal experience. Over recent months I have deleted more than half my hubs, updated the rest and my income has more than doubled.

    Thank you for your candor.  I detailed my concerns about this experiment regarding quality.  The obvious goal is for 30 articles that can be moved to niche sites eventually, or at least updated and edited until they will go. 

    For anyone interested in following along, I detailed the articles and the goal here: https://hubpages.com/community/30-Hubs- … llenge-Log

    I have been considering this challenge as a personal milestone for the same reason. Since 2012 I have only 28 hubs. Of course, the biggest issue is finding the time.

    I probably won't attempt the challenge anytime soon, but am going to try adding a few here and there. Would be interested in future updates on how the challenge works for you. smile

    I have 100 unpublished partial hubs written. I may try to do one a day until they are all published.

      Wow, 100! You definitely have to try a hub challenge! That’s a great head start

        I have over 150 now. I'm just so busy and an extreme multi-tasker to be able to finish them. Maybe when I'm done with school I will be able to do it.

    Writing a stellar hub for the niche sites takes way more time than one day. Like others mentioned above: it's quality that counts today, not quantity.

    I have done this challenge in the past and did manage to do it,  It was time consuming and I did almost stop at halfway through but kept going only because some people told me that I would not be able to do it,  I am thinking of doing this challenge within the next couple of months.  For me it helps having an idea of what to  write about before I start the challenge.

    Good luck! As long as you don't sacrifice quality for quantity, this is an admirable goal that helps spark some new creative venues.

    I'm currently making good progress in my 30 needlessly-unhealthy meals in 30 days "challenge"; here's to both of us.

    This seems like a good challenge and I would very much like to give it a shot.

    I don't even know how to write one hub in just one day.

    I saw this challenge just now and I'm going to give it a try! I think the important thing here isn't actually completing 30 hubs in 30 days, but the consistency. This has been a major problem for me, since I start a hub and then either forget about it or don't have time and then I end up abandoning the article for months. So my goal is to do something for thirty days: improve old hubs, add more photos, work on new hubs and hopefully publish at least 5 or so new ones.

    I am new to Hubpages and will probably be keeping up with this to at least try and post good articles.

    I suppose it's possible to write 30 articles in 30 days, but what quality will they have? I would never attempt such a challenge because time pressure to produce would probably lead to scrimping in the research phase. A poor result would be inevitable. It's quality not quantity that works.

      +1  I'm with you there.  There is no way I can write a good article in just 24 hours (let alone leave enough time to eat and sleep).  I can write one - years ago I participated in a contest to write one in just 30 minutes, from a dead start without even a title in mind.  Kind of fun, but it produced nothing I can earn from or would even care to have published.

      Heck, proof reading alone will take me several hours by the time I've done it 3 or four times over 3 or 4 days.

    I have done this with poetry on a different site before and it was alot of fun.  Quite a challenge though.
    I don't think I could write that many articles though.
