Hey Hub Writers,
Come join the fun.... Instant Hub Challenge Time!
(a) write a one hub in 30 minutes(cannot be one already written)
(b) write about any topic(except poetry-too short(easy))
(c) hit publish
I'll read it and comment....
Would like 5 total(4 including myself).
(d) edit at a later time.
Come get your juices flowing....
Hey there Cagsil. Are you adding some new caveats since the last time? None already written (cheating, you mean), no poetry?
Poetry is too small. It takes what 5 minutes to write a poetry hub. Come on, get real. As for not written already is because it is suppose to be INSTANT not posting something you have waiting to publish or barely need to finish.
Where is the creativity in that?
So are you two pansies playing or what? Gotta start in next 5 minutes though.
Hey Cags, not taking part but felt I should point out that "5 total" is not 4 including you ... it's 5 including you. It's 4 excluding you!
Why would he want to exclude himself? He is excluding himself from being included in the number 4, is what it means).
Sorry W.E. I was only being playful - not meaning to offend.
Is 5pm EST in one hour? I really haven't figured out this time difference. I haven't got the stamina to stay up that late - so it is me that is the pansy
I hope you find enough challengers. I should probably stop churning out fast trashy crap and turn my attention back to my Masterplan anyway - Cagsil, you have taught me so much, like how to do funky smilies but I'm also blaming you for my total lack of focus
No, It is right now. It is 5pm right this second.
The choice is yours, if you feel it's hampering your focus, then do not take part.
Now that you mention pansies, I have already been in one of these contests about a week ago. How about you?
Actually Spacey started a little late on the last challenge and finished 40 minutes later.
Cagsil - you must like me stalking you otherwisde you wouldn't keep being so kind to me
And I started the last challenge late - and finished even later - if you knew me in real life, that is soooo me.
Hey Jen - never ever look at my hubs, or forum posts - my grammar is pants!
Nope - I'm wimping out - you lot are way too feisty for me tonight. Laptop also running out of juice and cannot be bothered to get up and get the charger
Will check thread in the morning so I can have a read of your new hubs. I love reading what you can do in 30 minutes.
I type fast - and they really do not represent what I plan on doing. I just learn better by doing. So I read about different techniques of keyword research and tried them out - mixed in some different ways of doing backlinking - just did a few cheeky random hubs. I wanted to have a large number to fiddle about with while I am learning. Want to start at it properly in Sept when youngest sprog starts preschool 5 days a week. Until then just messing about, learning and reading. And watching every single Amazon sale with great excitement.
I haven't sold anything on Amazon since Christmas I found some really expensive things from Amazon to put on my hubs today. Will be mega excited if they sell.
Spacey, I just noticed that you're from Essex. I grew up in Essex, only moved away a few months ago.
Yes, I am up for it as I was just about to do another hub but hadn't decided what on yet! OK, I have just thought of what I am going to do and it will be ready within the next 30 minutes!
Nope - I was saying I was stalking you, not the other way round. Although I don't mind if you wanna stalk me. I am terribly shallow and vain so a HP stalker would be wonderful thanks.
Anyway - I should've just taken the challenge instead of chatting on this forum!
Good luck - gonna check up the hubs in the morning.
Can't work out whether we're still open for business on this one. It's 10.30pm in the UK so I am a bit muddle headed. Anyway, I haven't written anything to day - so I'd like to join in if you run it.
Cool Precious....nice to see you again. Hope you're alright.
Hi Cagsil. I'm fine thanks. Hope you're okay. Someone must be lurking tonight/this morning/afternoon somewhere!
Okay, so who is IN on this?
Precious - Yes
Myself - Yes
Website Examiner - ?
Spacey Gracey - ? Still here?
Tenerife Islander - Might already be writing???? Hope not.
And you put a smiley face on it, meaning you're happy with it?
The topic today seems to be smart ass hubbers I was happy to finally find something I can be relatively good at.
short term memory loos is a sure sine of senility. (or to many drugs)
Oh well, I guess it is time to let this thread die. It has been over 110 minutes and apparently not enough people to take part.
Have a great day people.
Damn! I thought I had better get on with it and was bearing in mind it had to be done in 30 minutes so instead of checking back to see anything further regarding rules I got cracking!
Hey Cags....you still interested in doing this!
It's only 6am here in my part of the world but I'm keen if there are a few others around. I missed your call yesterday (night here) because I was working.
Anyway....I'm a starter - keen to kick my brain into gear on this lovely morning!
Cagsil: Just a couple of little questions - Didn't you post the same forum topic with the same title yesterday? How were you able to get today's time stamp on it (with the same title)? Is it an altogether new forum that you were able to give the same name as yesterday's?
Do you provide the topic or is it open topic? I'm not up for this just yet, but maybe in the future.
I have been wondering if you take into account the time zones of the world when you post these challenges; but after struggling with a world time-zone map for awhile, I think you probably have! Have you ever asked those people who are interested in this challenge to tell you what time in GMT would work best for them?
Not the same title, but for the same reason.
Did you read the beginning of this thread?
No, time is irrelevant. Those who want to take part when one is posted takes part. Those who are not on at the time, should not feel as though they missed something.
It's a simple 30 minute challenge and not everyone can write a hub in 30 minutes, so regardless one would have to figure out if they could do it, before they try to do it for the first time.
Anyone can start a thread of their own about it, if they so choose, if they feel inspired to write that badly? I mean, where is the creativity one is to have. I understand the time zone difference and I shouldn't feel bad because people cannot take part. Those who are online at the time, can choose whether or not, they choose to take part. If not, their loss.
It's all about the consciously fluid results that come from doing it.
You're right - their loss. And maybe it's something I can try on my own, so that I can experience the "consciously fluid results that come from doing it." I guess I have felt bad on your behalf because I think it's a terrific idea, and I've been sorry that in the times I've seen it posted there have seemed to be so few takers. But I think maybe you have posted it more often than I have seen, and since you don't feel bad I guess I won't either. Cheers.
I didn't get a response from this this morning when I said I was keen to participate. Then I lost the power and 6 hours later I have power again!
Sounds as though you didn't have any more starters so I'll look out for it next time.
BTW - I don't understand some of the negative comments in this thread!!! You are doing a great job and as you say - if we're around and have the time we can give it a go!
Hey Travelespresso, Thank you for the kind words and I'm sorry we were unable to get a chance to do one. I had a thought rattling around in my head most of the day and finally put it into a hub.
I have not published it, but I do plan on it. Since it wasn't part of the challenge, I don't have to publish it right away.
Some people have the courage do it on the spot and then make adjustments later. I guess that is what is being missed on it to begin with.
At least there would be a new hub made. It might even be fun for some, but unless they try it once at least, they will never know.
I'll catch up with you some other time. It would be a pleasure. I'm turning in for tonight. You take care and try to have fun.

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...

So, Hubtivity is swamped with new hubs that nobody really wanted to write and nobody really wants to read. The natural (and excellent) dynamic of this Great Domain is destroyed. And those of us who have work to do or are less than competitive by nature can only sit back and wait for the feeding...

It has been such a fun exercise to participate in Hubpages author Annart's shorty story challenge. She posted a picture of her own painting and asked everyone to write a story from it. It has been amazing to watch so many talented writers rise to the challenge and produce incredible...
