WOW...I'm impressed with the work you all did in 30 minutes. WTG.
I really enjoyed doing this and I feel very satisfied that I have a hub I've been wanting to write for weeks now, published. Sure it needs lots of tweaking and many more photos (which I have), but its a good start.
Thank you. The images are standard on any Windows based machine. Someone once told me I needed to get new images or make an assortment of different images, relevant to the topic. However, I pointed out to them that as long as the message is received, the pictures themselves don't matter.
Besides, they are nice pictures and I've used them on all my hubs, and people continue to compliment them.
Like you, I too have been doing some tweaking here and there. I have many more photos to add (which I took in the Old quarter last month) but I'll do that later when I have more time to select and edit them.
I'm so happy - its only 9 a.m. here and I've written and published a new hub!
Dang, I need to check this more often, I think an instant hub challenge would be a good kick in the butt for me to really focus on one for a little bit...I have trouble concentrating on one thing and one thing only, and I generally have my text down pretty fast because it gets written in my head long before I type it, but I need to spend more time developing links and pictures. Oh well, maybe I'll set the timer for 30 minutes and pretend it's expected by then
You're welcome. This was like the 4th time I've done a challenge, and second hosted. I was bored, has a thought I wanted to write about, just didn't feel like writing it. The challenge made me put it down.
I'm glad you enjoyed. Shadesbreath and I have been doing on and off for the last month or two.
U need to hold off on Fridays till around now so I can play (WEST coast u know). This idea was sort of a drinking game thing for me, lol, but I can't really go till I've A) finished my "real" writing, and B) have enough beer for a nice rant.
If you'd started it now, I'd have been all over it. I debated starting another one, but I think I'll just read tonight. I get so few nights to just read new peeps. That's fun too. I discover the coolest people. (although, dude, what's your take on hubhopping? Is that just me, or is that just a window on disaster?)
Yeah, I thought about that time difference, once I set the time. I figure it might be close to dinner/supper time. However, decided to go with the 3 others already on board. I do not hub hop. I'm not into it. But, I think you might be on to something.
I could probably rant on something, but no need. You got one in, so you're good. I've choked up 60 pages in the last few days. I'm actually cool to just read. If you get enough, I'll be number five, otherwise, I'm just gonna discover new hubbers, enjoy the too-loud tunes, and destroy this 12-er.
Hey Hub Writers,Are you up for an INSTANT Hub Challenge?Think you can write one hub inside 30 minutes.Give it a shot?Qualify-(a) hub must be quality - 600+ words or more(b) can be on any topic you choose(c) post when doneAfter the Challenge is over and hubs are written, I'll be glad to read each...
Ok, so I have this idea. It may flop horribly, but that's fine too, I'm bored so, whatever. So, I've seen the 30 day challenge before, 1 hub every day for 30 days. I have not the attention span for that. However, as a drinker, a bored person, and a fast typist, I might go for 1...
I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...
... what is the optimal timing between hubs to publish them in order to get the best results in terms of page-views and real readers?The Hub Challenge has gotten me to thinking about this. It seems clear to me that if I happened to have a backlog of ready-to-publish hubs, I wouldn't dump them on...
