I toiled. Actually I didn't - I just wrote stuff. That was fun.
And I played around in the forums and learnt stuff. That was fun.
Then a couple of days ago I looked at my stats (traffic, visitors, keywords), and layout, and product placement, and tags, and summaries, and white spacing - and I thought about who would search and read, and hopefully buy or click.
So I am revising my 29 hubs (yes I didn't make the magic 30) with a more experienced view than I had a month ago. It's not fun.
But at least I hadn't written 30! That's one less piece of incoherent, off message garbage I have to deal with.

Well done my friend. I admire you. Best of luck.
