I am new to HubPages, But to be brutally honest I am to the whole content/article/blog writing scenario. So here's the challenge I am going to set for myself.
I'll challenge myself to post 43 more articles to achieve 50 in total. This will be valid only if all the articles get published status from the HubPages.
Timespan to complete - 43 days
Date - 22nd April 2021
For you guys, the challenge is the same, but you need to just write the number of articles equal to the difference from the closest '50s or 100's.
Who told you that you have 7 published articles. I think you need to check your profile first—I can see only six, so the difference would be 44 articles in 44 days. Well, Best of luck. Let's see how far you can go. It's not about quantity, but quality.
Welcome To HubPages. Wish you the best of luck
Right. 6 published articles. One was in the draft mode and I didn't realize when I was writing the challenge. So now, it would be 44 articles in 44 days. And I totally agree quality over quantity is more important. But if I don't push out more articles, I wouldn't know where I am going wrong or ways to improve my writing. Let's say, it's more like a practice.
And I can always come back and edit the articles to meet certain standards based on my growth.
Thanks for the support.
Sorry, but this is not a good idea. It doesn't matter how many articles you have if they are poorly written. The way to make money on this site is by writing quality articles. If you study the successful authors here, you will that there are a fair number who have less than 100 articles. Those articles are of highest quality and rank high on Google. That is what you should be aiming for - ranking high on Google. First page at the very least. The number 1 or 2 spot is the best. Hastily written articles will never appear on the first page of Google. They will attract very little traffic and you will make cents at the most.
True and I agree with you on that. Because of that, if you check the challenge, I have mentioned that the article will be counted only if - the article gets a published status.
I assume that it can be counted as a somewhat quality article and help me rework and grow as a writer as well.
It is really a challenge to get the article published on the hubpages
True... I had to go for multiple edits and waited for days for it to get published.
I think you should use 'women' when you are referring to women
I am sorry, but I didn't really get the message.
You have an article about woke-ism and feminism which constantly refers to 'ladies'. It's a bit outdated. 'Women' would be more appropriate, especially given the subject matter
Ahhh... sure. I'll make sure to correct it after the next post.
It's difficult to keep up with the trends of how words are used around the world.
Thanks for pointing out that.
Welcome to HubPages. I'm yet to accept any challenge on this plant form. So you can count me out. 44 articles in 44 days? It's like going round the world in 30 days! Good luck and honour to all who try.
True and I realize it's a really difficult feat to achieve. But I'll give it my everything.
Thanks for the support.
Dud, you're welcome. But as others like Rupert and OldRose has said, aim for high(er) quality in your articles. Thank goodness, you can.
I will Sir. That's the aim of the whole challenge. All the articles need to get Featured. That is the base standard am assuming for the articles.
Please don't try this. It is not possible to turn out high-quality articles at the rate of one a day for 44 days; unless you churn out information-free opinion pieces like your take on woke culture.
After more than five decades in professional journalism, I know whereof I speak. I am a pretty fast writer and I need about 20 hours to produce a well-researched, quality piece of around 1,200 words.
Rushing to fill your portfolio will probably backfire. Your articles are unlikely to be approved for the niche sites, which is where the money is.
Thank you for sharing your experience. I'll definitely consider it and will try to give it my best. Most of the articles am going to write is based on my opinions or my thoughts on the matter. But it definitely doesn't mean that I'll write something for the sake of it.
I am aiming to write articles that are informative enough or thought-provoking. I am not a professional writer or not even tried writing content for the internet ever before. So for me, as of now, the quality standard is getting a Published Status.
And I'll rework the same article till I achieve it. Setting goals that seem impossible, are fun to beat. And I'll try my best to beat it.
Thank you for your valuable insights.
A correction to be made. For the quality assurance of the post. I am aiming for the articles to receive FEATURED status. Or I'll be working on the article till it gets one, that way I can assure the minimum quality of the articles and will prevent me from randomly churning out articles with no substance or opinion generating worthy content.
Can't think of any good reason why someone would want to write an article each day for 44 days.
I am new to the whole writing scenario. This will help me grow, at the least that's what I believe. I hope it turns that way as well. And to make sure, the quality isn't compromised, I am aiming to get the FEATURED status for all the articles, that I am about to publish. It's not about the completion of the challenge but more so about the honest attempt to complete it.
Writing on here is a three part process for me.
First, consideration and research. This isn't just about the content of the article, if you're writing to earn you should find out the earning possibilities of the proposed article, as well as the quality of the competition.
Then there is the actual writing, in some ways the most straightforward part.
Then there is the editing stage. Initially it is about tidying and improving the article enough to get it featured. Ideally, you want to leave a gap between writing and editing, which makes it easier to see the article with some objectivity.
Even then, you are not finished, with online writing, you have to keep editing and updating, at least once a year, preferably more.
Thank you so much, Paul. I will keep this in mind.
While the others are right that quality does matter more than quantity, when you are learning, it's not necessarily bad to try a lot of different articles and see what works, provided they are reasonable and not so rushed that they are bound to fail. You might write 50 articles, but only 3 get a good amount of views/earnings. But those 3 are valuable as they suggest a direction that you might go in.
The more that you learn about online writing, the more you will understand how much there is to it. I am still often surprised at what works and what doesn't.
That's so insightful. I hope I get to know what works for me before the challenge comes to an end.
Where did you get this an-article-a day idea? You mentioned you're new to writing and blogging, so I'd assume it's some blogging tip site, or writing tip site?
I read many such sites when I started writing online, and down the road, I discovered they are almost always written by people with not a clue about writing or SEO or traffic. These fake experts are just recycling information they've read elsewhere.What they recommend don't help you to learn or grow too, because the tasks they recommend are ridiculous or unnecessarily burdensome.
I would suggest you instead focus on more beneficial goals like getting the 10K traffic batch within half a year, or getting x number of hubs into the niche sites, etc. These accomplishments are much better reflections of growth.
You are correct Yong. I did find it on some website to grow faster. But I didn't simply choose to follow. Rather I decided to do it or at the least try it, so I could grade myself and hone my non-existent writing skills. And after your comment. I'll add few other goals to achieve in a certain time limit.
Thank you so much for the insights. and the goal recommendation.
I commend you for giving yourself this challenge. Hard, but do-able, depending on your topics.
Many years ago, when I started writing on this platform, I joined a 30hubs-in-30days challenge. It increased my numbers but the quality was below par.
After the challenge, I re-wrote, improved on, and gave each of them more ‘beef’. I actually did the challenge twice.
I wish you all the best.
Really commendable. And just the thought of doing this challenge twice. Awesome. Your accomplishment filled me with hope.
I'll try my best.
Thanks for your support Viryabo.
Your efforts are laudable.

I find quite often that when I publish an article one or two of the photos or text blocks are in a different place that the edited version. This is very frustrating. It's like the published article has to be edited all over again. Is there a reason for this?

Has anyone tried 30 days 30 articles kind of a challenge? And what effects has it shown to your analytics in terms of your traffics, ads and revenue.
