    Yeah I am really having to pull at these. I have several ideas going but each one just seems to be taking a lot.

    Well, I feel like I've made some progress.  I have 14 hubs in the works.  All of them have a chunk done on them.  I hope to get a few published in the next couple of days with the remainder done in the next week.  Even without publishing these, I'm on target with my current hubs to hit 200,000 pageviews this week.

    Marisa Wrightposted 14 years ago

    I've done 10 Hubs for this March Challenge.  I got a bit down when I discovered the Contest judges are only going to see the 10 Hubs picked by Jason for the People's Choice award, which means I've got no chance of winning the first week's prize.  And looking at the 10 Hubs picked, it looks like Jason is thinking along Flagship Hub lines in picking the shortlist, so I'm way off beam with my Hubs anyway. 

    Bummer.

    The result is that I started a Hub for tomorrow's contest topic but haven't got very far with it, and I don't think there's much point finishing it, as I'm not likely to write a Hub that will make the grade anyway.  Health topics are not my strong point, and I'm not willing to settle for spinning other people's stuff to pad things out.

    So I'm officially falling behind now.  In the past, the Challenge itself hasn't been enough to keep me motivated - now the contest feels beyond my reach, I'm not going to guarantee to keep going with this.

    1. KCC Big Country profile image84
      KCC Big Countryposted 14 years agoin reply to this

      Health Hubs are not my strong point either, Marisa.  Don't get discouraged though.  How about writing the next set of hubs about something you find enjoyable or something you find interesting to learn about?  That's how some of my hubs were born.  I heard something on the radio that made me curious and did the research to satisfy my own curiousity and thought others might be interested in what I found out too.  Let the challenge be about finding new topics to write about that are fun for YOU.

      1. soni2006 profile image76
        soni2006posted 14 years agoin reply to this

        That's true KCC. Sometimes when I get bored of writing hubs on the same topic, I research for other topics which I find interesting to keep up the spirits.

    How do you get the ideas for 30 hubs in 30 days?

    1. KCC Big Country profile image84
      KCC Big Countryposted 14 years agoin reply to this

      All kinds of things surface when you get in the hub-writing mindframe.  Inspiration will show up in the strangest of places.  For me, a lot of my ideas come from trivia I hear on the radio, or over-hearing someone talk about something at the grocery store.  I have a few ideas to make you think in this hub that I've retitled a few times over the life of the hub.
      http://hubpages.com/hub/How-To-Improve- … ing-Skills

      I periodically brainstorm ideas and write down anything that comes to mind.  I often don't flesh them out until later.

      If you still need help, holler.

      1. KCC Big Country profile image84
        KCC Big Countryposted 14 years agoin reply to this

        Anath, a HubChallenge is about challenging yourself, but you can only physically do what you have time to do.  If you've had to focus on other things, that's life.  Don't sweat it.  Everytime you attempt a challenge, you're a success.  Just keep trying.  Push yourself when you can, but be proud of every single step you've made.

      I'm dropping out of the Challenge - too much work to do next week.  I have a workshop to teach on Wednesday and a gig on Saturday so I have to make a lesson plan, rehearse and finish making a costume.

      I'm glad I entered the Challenge though - between my two Challenges (February and March) I wrote 19 Hubs.  That's major productivity by my standards!

      1. soni2006 profile image76
        soni2006posted 14 years agoin reply to this

        That's wonderful Marisa. At least, you took some time from your busy schedule. By the way, it would be a nice idea to make a hub on teachings and lessons and workshops you are involved with. Why not write a hub on how to design a costume for plays or something. You can share your practical experience of what you have been doing.

      2. KCC Big Country profile image84
        KCC Big Countryposted 14 years agoin reply to this



        Sorry to see you drop out, Marisa, but I truly do understand.  As I mentioned to Anath, life happens and sometimes we have to rearrange our schedules and other things take priority.  19 Hubs is something to be extremely proud of.

      Soni, you're doing a fantastic job.  Keep up the good work.  I, on the otherhand, have had a big dose of "real life" jump up and interfere with my ability to crank out the number of hubs I'd like to.  I haven't given up and I have yet to fail at a challenge and I think this is my 7th one.....so...I shall carry on.  I did start 3 new ones today, but none are ready to publish.  I think I have 9 or 10 published towards my 30 for the month.

      Thanks for the nudge, Nelle.  I actually started another hub during my lunch hour.  I'm just in that mode of wanting to write about something that I can just let flow out of my fingers rather than something I need to research, etc.  I'm wanting to be lazy....but nothing is quite flowing like I want.  The things that I'm finding interesting require research and it's not something I want to devote that much time to when I feel like I'm running out of time.   I'm not giving up, but.....man, this month has flown by!
