    I may just be a glutton for punishment, but I've enjoyed the four hubs I've made so far since joining last week and it's always good to set goals, so I may as well jump right in! big_smile

      Okay, I'm officially needing to write four today. Ahhh, how does that happen? You'd think the weekend would've been the best time to catch up, not fall farther behind. Okay, well maybe not if you're part of a family of seven and everyone was home lol. I don't give up though!

    Good Luck.

    Make sure that you maintain quality over quantity. When you're done, make sure to post a few(3) links in the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum thread, so others can critique your work.

    This will help you in future creation of hubs. smile

    I have done two 30DayChallenges - tanked in the first one, but learned lots. Survived and succeeded at the second one!

    Good Luck to you!

      I've managed to do a few for the challenge, but am two behind. Kind of hard to catch up on that during the weekend, but I might get a chance to try tomorrow. If not, then I'll play catch up while the kids are in school during the week.

      Thanks for the welcome:)

    Where do you guys get your inspiration during your Hub challenges.  By this, I sometimes have a hard time coming up with ideas to write Hubs.  Surely there's a method you use to determine what you're going to write about.  What's yours?

    1. nell79 profile image76
      nell79posted 9 years agoin reply to this

      For me, sometimes it's something I'm curious about already and decided to research. Sometimes it's an experience I've had that I want to help others through. Sometimes it's a fiction piece that I decided to revisit to polish up and share. But I think it has to be something that's interesting to you, or it won't be for anyone else.

      How do you join the 30 day challenge. what if you can't complete the challenge? Any penalty?

      1. nell79 profile image76
        nell79posted 9 years agoin reply to this

        The only penalty is the disappointment you may feel in yourself if you don't complete it. The reward? More hubs for traffic and possible revenue if you've done your job right. Plus a pat on the back for a job well done!
