Great that you've started one! They certainly help you learn and improve your traffic.
I've completed three. They get addictive!
I used to do the challenges, but now I write over 30 per month without really trying - so it doesn't really feel like an achievement anymore.
Good on you for starting though.
I've completed 7-8 of the 30-day challenges and learned so much with each one. You'll be glad you did it.
how do we learn through this challenge? Is there any secret or just writing 30hubs itself is a lesson as when we write something new we always learn new things? just curious.
I agree with WryLilt. I'll elaborate a bit more on my personal experience.
What I learned was that when I focused on the challenge I became more aware of ideas. Everywhere, all around me, everyday, were millions of great ideas. I almost couldn't write them down fast enough. It made writing fun and it made it easy. I was in the flow. When I let off from that, things do not come as easily. Topics to write about do not flow like they do when I'm focused on a challenge.
I have about a half dozen money-maker hubs that I like to call my babies. Every one of these babies were born during a hub challenge. Several of them were in response to a HubMob Topic. I would have never guessed these topics would do as well as they have. That taught me to write about anything I knew a little bit about. You never know what will be a hit.
The practice of writing regularly helps you find your voice. You create a style of writing that lays the groundwork for more easily writing other hubs.
Taking the time to monitor my results helped me see topics that I know something about that generate more traffic. This helped me decide on related articles I could write to try to cash in on some of that same success. Sometimes this worked and sometimes it didn't. Sometimes the related articles took off and did well too and sometimes they didn't.
Thanks anyone for your comments :-).
For me writing 30 Hubs in 30 Days is a real challenge.
Because I'm new here, but I count on your help :-)

I'd love to know your answer to this question. And I'm not speaking of answers such as, "Finding more time to write." Let me help you out by listing a few of my own challenges. You can select one of these or add your own. Thanks for sharing. - A. Finding a...

What would you pick for the topic as in the easiest one for you and would it be a poem or not?

The last challenge I participated in (and stuck to) doubled my traffic here on HubPages. Even when Panda started, my traffic increased (but, sadly not to the heights it would have if the Panda hadn't attacked us.)Nuff said! Enjoy your hub challenges! I'll be doing it again soon!

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...

Since I haven't written here for over four weeks I want to establish a writing routine again. I find it difficult to establish a routine unless I make it official. So to get going with writing hubs again, I am embarking on a new HubChallenge. I am asking everyone to join! Why? By the end, we should...
