Starting My Own 30 Hubs/30 Days Challenge March 1, Wanna Join In?

    KCC Big Countryposted 7 years ago

    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, now is a great time.  There are so many great things to write about, for instance:

    St. Patrick's Day
    Spring cleaning
    Easter
    Mother's Day
    Memorial Day
    Springtime weather

    Then you have the Helpful Heath Hubs Contest going on as well.  See this thread for details: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/36846

    If you'd like to join me, simply post a reply here that you're in, but please post the links to your hubs in the proper thread for HubChallenge links found here:  http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/18049

    Good luck!

      I'm in!! I have spring break in two weeks for two weeks, and should have plenty of time. I have never been able to finish 30 in 30 before, but I feel I may be able to accomplish it this time around!

      I am really excited for the helpful health hubs challenge!

      Hello; I think I will join this challenge. I have been a loiterer in HP for the last 2 years, and haven't written much at all. Thanks for the nudge.

        Way to go Kerry!  Since it's so late in the calendar month, you're probably going to want to join the regular 30 hubs in 30 days Hub Challenge.  That way you can start "Day 1" any day you want.

        Right now, I'm the one that needs the nudging.  I have only 9 hubs done for March....I have 3-4 in the works, but I'm certainly not where I think I should be for the month if I'm going to get 30 done by the 31st.  smile

          I'm sure you've got lots of hub ideas spinning round in your head just waiting to get out. Favorite yummy recipes, more wonderful Texas travel hubs. And have you ever seen the mysterious Marfa Lights?

          Hi KCC, well, I gave it some thought, and  I might just be a hero and finish my 30 hubs by midnight March 31. I have everything to gain and nothing  to lose anyway. Then  I will join the regular hub challenge again on April 1.

          See you at the post:)

              Well, I just posted my 17th article for my 9 day/30 hub challenge. Since I opened my mouth when I did, I thought I better make good on my promise.
              Thanks for any further nudges folks, I have 13 to go and 3 days to do it.

      Hello again; I have been reading other hubs about their hub challenge experiences, and I see that many of them have posted screen shots of their traffic charts etc. How to I go aout doing this? is it done through Google analytics or here at HP somewhere?
      Thanks

      Yippee, I'm in the home stretch, it's my 9th day and I have 27 of the 30 hubs published. It must be something I ate because I really wasn't sure I'd do it when I spoke up.

      Thanks for making me accountable guys.

              Ah...good to see so many getting excited and joining in and others giving it another try!  As always, thanks to the others for their support as well!

              Lynne is correct, please continue to only post links in the official forum for HubChallenge links.  Do not post them here.  This should be a place where we come back to encourage each other, ask questions, and welcome newcomers. 

              Anyone can join all throughout the month.  They can still make it a March challenge or simply the regular 30 in 30 challenge where their ending date will land some time in April.  It's no biggie any which way you do it. 

              I plan to use "HubChallenge" as one of my tags in all my hubs.

                you can go back and add the tag Faybe. Then you can search it under tags in your account page. Makes it so much easier to keep up with also if you start on the beginning of the month like KCC prefers to do you can go by the hub pub date to track it.

                You are quite welcome. That's why this is so important to have to coincide with the links thread. Sharing of what works from others who have done this before, getting new ideas from the ones who haven't and just all around good support.

              3. KCC Big Country profile image85
                KCC Big Countryposted 7 years ago

                I did consider "MarchHubChallenge" as a tag and decided against it.  My reasoning wasn't too impressive, so I'll use "MarchHubChallenge" as well.  smile

                Faybe, no need to worry about having started early.  You can still challenge yourself to do 30 in March.  It can overlap with whatever else you were doing.  When you post the links in the other thread you can say something like :

                #10 on day 10 in my 30 hubs in 30 days challenge
                #2 on day 2 in my 30 hubs in March Challenge

                (post the link)


                But even that isn't necessary.  It's just something you can do if you want to. 

                The calendar months just work so much better for me personally to make it easier to keep up with what day I'm on and how many days I have left.  Then, if I lose track with what hub # I'm on I simply sort my published hubs by date and count all the March ones.  Simple.

                UltimateHubber, join us when you're ready!

                    That's way more hubs than I accomplished in February, Marisa! I think I've only published a couple of hubs in 2010.  I've been working on work-related stuff and I'm beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel and decided March is a good place to get back in the groove.  Glad to have you on board, Marisa!  I agree that the Health Hub contest gives it that extra incentive to publish some good quality health hubs.

                    Good luck to everyone!

                    This looks like a great way to get started. I'm a few days behind, but I think I'll give it a shot anyway! big_smile

                      Yay! No worries....I haven't published my first for the month yet either.  It's 30 in March....you can publish all 30 on March 31st technically... smile

                      It does work better to keep a steady pace though.  smile

                      Good luck and welcome aboard!

                    renoelle you can do it ... i didnt write everyday, matter of fact i didnt write anything the first few days after sign up lol. i did my own personal goal of 30 in my first month of joining(did not join in on any hub page challenges just made my own) and i am 2 off and its because of all the love and support everyone here at hubpages shows to each other. keep up the good work everyone and maybe next time i will commit to a hub challenge with you all lol.

                        Thanks a lot Anath. How I am doing it.

                        1. See I started hubchallenge on March 4th and published total 4 hubs up until today.
                        2.  Hubmob weekly topic started on March 1st and at that time I was doing my previous hubchallenge which I completed on March 3rd.
                        3. Then I thought why not publish three hubs and take triple benefits. I wrote three hubs on March 5th on naturopathy via HubMob and included my links in HubMob, HubChallenge which I am doing plus Helpful Health Hub Contest.

                        Now I think you got my point. Do this now and take triple benefits, this will bring internal traffic and then after a incredible external traffic.

                        Now it's time to publish my another hub on health hub contest AROMATHERAPY which will also be included in HubMob and HubChallenge.

                    I am successful in publishing my number one hub in AROMATHERAPY category of Helpful Health Hub Contest. Here is its title:

                    Aromatherapy Benefits of Clove Oil - Where to Buy Clove Oil

                    The link to this hub is available in HubMob Weekly and HubChallenge threads. I am afraid I am not allowed to paste the links here.

                    I joined HubPages today and figured why not start strong.  I'm in for March.  Woo.  Just finished my first three hubs.

                    Awesome achievement Pinkylee! Congrats on completing your challenge! Jump back in for 30 more whenever you're ready. Quite a few of us like working on a calendar month, but the regular challenge goes on all the time.

                    That's 4 more than me, Lynne....LOL   I have quite a few started...I just need to work on them. Once I do, I'll probably publish a bunch at the same time.
