      I hope it is OK to say thank you here for this idea Cagsil. 
      I did not have the courage to opt in for it when you posted it on the forum.

      I followed your writing challenge alone - my aim was to produce a piece of writing in the set thirty mins. I managed to surprise myself by how much I had written at the end of that time. It helped to kick-start my writing, just what I needed a push to get on with it. I just wanted to say thanks to you and it was useful to me.

      It's okay. Thank you for posting. I'm sure one day you will be able to do so. But, you can check out the ones that do get published. It might help you make more of your own, who knows. smile

      Well, doesn't that just beat all.  I was busy writing and missed out!  I'm sorry Cagsil, I'm certain I could have pulled something out of my hat, too.  Maybe I'l catch it next time.  Thank you though, it would have been great fun.

          Your is fantastic, mines a quicky very flippy and ditsy.  YOURS is fab! 

          So what's your meaning of life as it pertains to you?

          1. Cagsil profile image82
            Cagsilposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            It to be established by the individual. A person should create meaning, through their actions, which do not harm others.

              Just butting in on your hub challenge, but I have a hub about the meaning of life which says that exact thing. People create their own meaning to life and it doesn't matter what they do as long as they don't harm others.

              Perhaps I should actually read your hub, then I can make a more specific comment there.

              1. Cagsil profile image82
                Cagsilposted 8 years agoin reply to this

                Hey Jen,

                I do not get into the meaning of life too deeply on the hub. But, more along the lines of a person's individual perception versus what is actually known(group facts) to humanity.

                But, before someone can understand group facts, they must first start out by learning and understanding their own life. smile

    I struggled even more today- no pictures or links and trouble with my keyboard - but that's no excuse!  I'm pathetic.  I also forgot to put the lights on and so I was sitting in the dark!

        You can tweak it later, I tried to add a video to mine, thinking I could grab a quick one and wouldn't you know I couldn't find a good quick vid on deep tanning... smile

    Its just another boring product hub but I needed to write it. I need to tweak it more - I'm after people searching for sleep solutions for reflux babies rather than searching for the specific product if you see what I mean - trying to think about things in a different way.

    1. Cagsil profile image82
      Cagsilposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I left a comment. It was a pretty cool hub, but as I said in my comment, it will be even better when done tweaking it. smile

    I gotta hang out more so I can get in when someone does this; I write hubs in 30 minutes or less all the time. Well, not "all" the time, but generally I can kick one out in under an hour.

        Would like to try. smile

        Although I'll sometimes take days/hours on some hubs, I generally create one on the spot once I have all the pieces to the puzzle.

      Welcome to HubPages. I get that you are new, but did you read the OP of the forum thread? Or did you skip to the end?

      Your post makes absolutely no sense to this forum thread. Just thought you should know, how it looks to those who watch the forums. smile

        Cagsil - how diplomatic of you to point out that the post makes no sense. I was more distracted by the side-ways profile pic smile

    Sorry I missed this one, Cags.  I was in the middle of making one already when you first posted and only finished an hour ago.  'Sigh' between watching four grandchildren and spending 2 hours taking photos and making supper and feeding everyone and and and, I never even saw your post.

    Liked the new hubs of the group that participated, though....
