    Last night I decided that I was going to challenge myself to post a hub a day for the rest of the month, and then this afternoon I found this challenge, so.... you could say that I started it yesterday.   I have two hubs up already.... now just 28 more to go.  My ultimate goal will be to be able to be making $100-200 a month by the end of the year.  I don't know if maybe this is an unreasonable goal, but unreasonable goals are what makes me get things done.

      Well good luck - cant see it happening until you become dofollow.  You need to hit 75 before you get there on your authorscore.  However, the 30 in 30 will definately get your authorscore up quickly.

      Welcome to Hubpages!

        What does "becoming dofollow" mean?  And I know it may very well not happen, but I'm still going to shoot for it.  If you aim big you'll usually end up getting farther than if you aimed smaller, even if you don't reach your goals.

          You arent being crawled by the search engines presently.  Hubpages put a no follow on newbies to deter spammers.  You are presently 35 - keep producing good content and you will soon rise to above 74 where you will get crawled and indexed - dont worry, the 30 in 30 is a great start for you and you will soon be a high flyer! wink

    Welcome to Hubpages! The 30 Day HubChallenge is a great way to jump right in!  I glanced over your two hubs and it looks like you've got the concept down.  Write 28 more quality hubs like the other two and you'll be on your way!  $100-$200 a month is reasonable.  It's fairly common for a hubber to take 8-10 months to hit that first $100 payout, but the second payout comes much faster.  During the 2nd year, you can easily see $100 each month.  Obviously, results vary according to your topics, etc.

      Nice to know.  I'd be perfectly happy with making that goal in 8-10 months... I just work well when trying to do something unreasonable, hah.

    The bad:
    I'm too tired to write a Hub of the quality I'd like right now, and I don't want to publish any fluff.  Note to self: create a smalls stockpile of Hubs for nights like this when you have time.  I thus need to write two Hubs tomorrow.  I better not mess this up.

    The good:
    I did a bunch of research on SEO and came up with a small list of keywords I can possibly use to write some articles.  I also tweaked a couple of my already published posts.

      Hub for yesterday written but unpublished.   That's because it's sorta of going to be an introduction for a series that it wouldn't make sense to publish until all the other articles are.

      So, for my own reference:
      -Day 4-
      Hub #5: Beginner Vegetarian - What You Need to Know (for my own reference)

      Hub for today to come tonight... will probably have to do with the series.

        Hub #5 for today mostly done... but I'm gonna wait till the morning when I'm actually awake to put on the finishing touches and make sure there are no errors.  I'm gonna try to get a few done tomorrow because I don't really have anything I need to do.   I love free days.

        Note to self:  Try to start getting these done midday!
