    Do you feel that the quality of your hubs has either fallen or had a large deviation to live up to the challenge?  I'm tempted to join the challenge having made 3 hubs in 3 days, but I don't want to sacrifice quality.

    Peter,you've only been here two days.  I wouldn't recommend you taking part in the challenge.  Creating good Hubs is a learning curve - you'll do much better working on fewer Hubs and discovering how HubPages work, than jumping straight in and writing 30 Hubs.  You'll just give yourself a big editing job later on, if you do!

    Do a lot of research reading and viewing. Honestly I disagree with Marissa on this point tho. The reason is that it is hard to get discouraged especially with only a couple hubs and very little traffic starting out. It is a learning curve and the best way t o learn is experience. Go crazy and try to write 30 hubs in 30 days, if you have the basics down with spelling,grammar,and have knowledge of your topics then you have won the first half of the battle. Once you have done several hubs you will get feedback from people and you will pick tips here and there. You can go back ad tweak as you learn but you will have set yourself up with a good set of content that you can work with.

    There is two reasons why the hubchallenge was created.  One some months ago a hubber wanted to experiment with writing 100 hubs in 30 days and the current hubchallenge which is ongoing which is to challenge yourself.  It is geared toward users like you to get you to write.

    Now, you don't have to sacrifice quality over quantity.  Write the best you can.  Some days, you may be able to write more than one in a day and yet others you may have one or none in a given day. 

    If we did not have this, how many people would stick with it.  This is here to challenge yourself.  If you don't make it, there is always next time to try again.

    At this point, I think I'll go for it.  I just continue to write down my ideas and then eventually hub them.  If I get only ten hubs in 30 days I'll be happy, I'll just make the attempt and only write when I want to.

    I just read your hubs and they looked great to me so I say go for it. The picture of you in Paris made me so jealous!!! I look forward to reading your hubs.

    Peter,the quality of your hubs can suffer whether you are in the 30 in 30 challenge or not. You need goals or you get nowhere.

    I find certain hubs are hard to write. Some days I write better than others. You just need to write. Once you get a nice rhythm, add SEO research. There are several hubs on the subject.

    Wtite. If you screw up a couple of hubs, so what. Nobody will shoot you. Not unless they can find you that is. (That's a joke, just in case somebody missed it.)

    Have fun. There is so much to write about and the research is so much fun. Good luck.

    Thanks for all the encouragement guys.  I always do keyword research before I write a post, so I'm not going to just be rattling post on anything. I'll check back in 30 days and see if I pull it off or not.

    Part of my challenge to myself is to not let my hubs drop off in quality...

    I think it's working thus far, but I found that it HELPS to have a plan on what you want to write going in

    a common theme can help because it will give you easy ways to look up a new topic within that general idea every day...

    The challenge is to make sure you have quality and the quantity. If your hubs start to lose quality, then it's time to stop the challenge and work on bettering  those hubs.

    PeterKlibs, I read one of your hubs and it looks like you'll do fine.  Just like everyone before me said, quality shouldn't be sacrificed for quantity.  You may actually find the quality increasing as you get in a good groove.  So, have fun with it!  Good luck to you and if you need any help, holler!

    Four days and four hubs, so far my pace is on and I think the quality is sticking. Still a loooonnnngggg way to go.
