As Shadesbreath challanged fellow hubbers in his "30 Minute Hub Challenge: ONE hub - 30 Minutes: Join the FUN...hurry!" I got inspired by this challange and created this challange.
Hubbers who missed shadesbreath challange can take part in this challange. This challange is available for everybody at any time. To take part in this challange you need to follow these rules. Enjoy:)
1: Three Hubs. You have 60 minutes to write it, from scratch. (you can have your word doc open in advance etc., obviously, just no writing). No cheating and using something you started before.
2: Set a timer. When it goes off, you have to hit publish.
3: If you don't hit publish you will become a bookworm and for your whole life and sit and read childrens playschool books. LOL.
4: You can always go back and edit later, but you will have a hub up. (pictures, videos, links can go in later too... the point is to see if you can make your hub better and impress other hubbers and me.
5: Link your new hub here so we can read it.
7: Go read everybody's and say how awesome it is even though they might suck probably worse than yours.
8. Let us know you are going to play so we can count you towards our 10 player minimum.
That's it. If you are ready, LETS START!
What an excellent way to produce hubs of sub-standard quality.
Yes darkside. So are you in. If yes i will count you in. Please reply.
I like the humor, I mean Sarcasm in here, do tell us how you feel, please. Btw, I am fan of your hubs and learned a lot as I said in my newbie guide. Keep up the good work.
I was just thinking that myself,well said
A HubChallenge is still supposed to produce quality hubs and this one is very unlikely to do that. Hitting the publish button three times is easy but above all quality counts.
I prefer write 1 hub in 3 hours that perform rather than 3 not performing hubs.
Okay, I got busy with something else last night. I am starting now.
Darkside was right. I am not surprised, he usually is.
Everybody, We have our first winner and that is BETTY REID! She has published 3 hubs in 60 minutes that is 1 hour! Congrats to Betty Reid.
I see that in the comments you all have posted, You have posted that "this challange is hopless, all hubs that will be published will be sub-standard quality". Are you all not ready or you don't have time to do this challange or maybe you all are very scared to do this challange?
I say that take "Take Betty Reid's example and do this challange". After all, It's a challange.
If I had three outlines ready I might be able to do it, but I think they would be UGLY:)I barely got through my 30 minute hub....well really didn't even get through that one either:)
I'm not daring enough.
But I do know how to spell challange.
What do I win?
Oh Mark, You alawys make me laugh! Mark you have won my heart as a good friend so now i faith in you and i can trust you. You have become one of my good friends here on hubpages.
Mark my friend, Just try to do this challange, Maybe you will win too?
Jason, I am lost for words. Thanks!
There is nothing that would tempt me to try to beat the clock. I need to be inspired and free to just throw words together until something emerges. I have a growing collection of Word documents that are not yet ready, and may never be ready for publication.
Sorry, bit of a long answer. One other thing.
Above all else, I am trying to write pieces that might make some money. It takes time.
Mark you said that "I need to be inspired and free to just throw words together until something emerges". Well, I will reveal you a secret, Mark the first time when i was browsing on hubpages you were the first one i met here and i truly got inspired by you, So i joined hubpages to become like you and get more inspired by you.
You were my inspiration here from start. This is my little secret that i have reveled to you. Mark i am not forcing you to do this challange, It's ok with me if you don't do it. So take your time and write hubs that will make you some money. Best of luck Mark. I hope and i know that you make some very amazing and excellent quality of hubs in the future.
Challange or challenge? Nice pick up Ewbie. Either way this is too big a challenge for me. I'm lucky to come up with one hub in a week!
Ign Andy and princess G, to write a hub I really like takes me about three days. Perhaps this is why I have so many unfinished drafts on my laptop! For these three hubs in 60 minutes, I had not written an outline, but I had been thinking about the topics for a while.
darkside and friends, thank you for your constructive feedback. Right now I am working on increasing my quantity. In response to your comments, I am going to reduce my quantity goal, so I can return to editing sooner (but not quite yet).
Jason Nicols, thank you for the recognition! Perhaps I will try it again this weekend too. I look forward to reading your three speedy hubs.
There's nothing difficult about writing 3 hubs in an hour, especially if one is a fast typist and just writes what one thinks. Typing at 80 words per minute, one can type 3200 words in about 45 minutes. That's about 1000 words per hub which is reasonable. One then has 5 minutes to put them up.
Whether they woudl attract any traffic, be a topc that people would want to read, or anything else is another matter!
Thinking about it now, I am a slow trypist but I manged to do neary 3 an hour most days. Because no one reads them I dont bother doing nothing good. It's a chicken and egg thing. The reeder and the riter.
I'll stop now. Sorry. Bit bored.
I published three this morning, I have no idea if they are any good, but I did background work on them and I spent time editing, spellchecking and adding new thoughts. there is no way I am going to do 3 in one hour. I have to wait for inspiration and then fact checking or topic research. I am nowhere near your level of speed. Perhaps next year.
This announcement is for Everybody and specially those who find this challange difficult, I have made this challange easy and have given you another challange that is "2 hubs in an hour. What do you think of that?"
If you want to take up this challange, search it in the foroums. So if you are ready to take up this challange, go to that post and start writing. Who knows you might even compelete it within an hour?
My hubs are substandard when I spend a week on them, lol. Trying for 3 in an hour would be a recipe for disaster for me.
I only launch the 30 minute hub challenges on Fri-Sat nights after a few beers, when I'm in the mood to just emote be it rant or rave when quality doesn't matter. We can argue whether my last hub is good or horrendous, but I think that on the whole, I know there's no way I could produce 3 good ones in 20 minutes apiece. I salute anyone who could pull it off though. Habee might be able to.

I had given my fellow hubpages hubbers a challenge "3 hubs in 60 minutes. Are you daring enough to do it?" But many hubber couldn't do it. Only one could do it and it was Betty Reid. I'll tell you 1 thing, Betty was very daring! Ok so now i have reduced the difficulty and made this...

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

I have encountered a very poorly written hub, the spelling and grammar was bad and the sentences were incomprehensible. The hub has less than 300 words in total including the title (268 words exactly) and has more than 15 none-English words. I had to check the hubber profile; the hubber has 12...

Happy Friday, Hubbers!Next week we will be raising the quality threshold for newly-published Hubs (meaning newly-Featured Hubs will, on the whole, be of higher quality) and will also be giving Featured Hubs (for those with high Hubber Scores) longer grace periods- up to a year for some.More...

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one published just fine. The Arizona and New Mexico ones are now Not Featured due to Quality....
